The July issue of Wired magazine in the UK ran a “Best Wet Shave Razor” test where they invited Brent Pankhurst, founder of the barbershop Pankhurst London, to trial four leading consumer razors. Wired also ‘shaved’ as many balloons with the razors and a Clinique Shave Gel in a timed 60 second exercise to establish how safe they were. Plus they also measured the rate of re-growth with the time in days before a cotton wool pad snagged the skin.
Obviously we are very pleased at the results. Especially as Hyperglide is designed and made here in the UK.
