Given the fact that I have a beard and therefore only use a razor on my cheeks (yes, the ones on my face) it’s fair to say razors rarely get me excited. But I feel as though I have a certain responsibility to report what’s going on in the shaving market so I’m here to tell you Wilkinson Sword have a new version of their Hydro shaver out.
I’m actually a big fan of the Hydro – it’s the razor I use myself to do the bits around my beard thesedays – but I use the manual version. Battery-powered razors have always left me a bit cold. But if you’re a fan of them you’ll love the Hydro 5 Power Select because it’s the first razor that enables you to customise the vibrations.
Featuring a built-in microprocessor the Hydro 5 Power Select allows you to switch at will between three levels of blade vibration. What’s more, it also tells you when the battery’s running low. Sadly, it won’t tell you which direction to shave in (now there’s an idea!) but it’s undoubtedly one step closer towards the ultimate “bespoke” shave.
The Wilkinson Sword Hydro Power Select costs £12.99 and is available from all good supermarkets and retailers nationwide.
