Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5 Review

Since it’s the Summer I go for the clean cut look for my face. If you’ve been a long time reader of my blog then you’ll know that in the past few years I decided to go for a beard in the winter months, and then keep it clean in the Summertime.

If you’ve ever done this, you’ll know that shaving can become such a chore when you’ve done the beard regime which is obviously less often.

Having said that, I really like having ultra smooth skin, so try to shave as often as I need to, and not get too lazy when it comes to grooming.

I always wet shave, I can’t imagine doing anything else. I’ve always thought that you get a far better finish, and it’s always a much nicer experience when having a wet shave. Wilkinson Sword asked me to try out their brand new Hydro 5 razor and put it through it’s paces, so I did.

First of all as the name suggests it’s a razor which has 5 blades, which gives a really close shave. One of the most important factors for using these razors is how well it works on your skin. It glides over the skin with ease and feels really nice.

This can be attributed to the technology behind the blade, which is a water activated gel reservoir, which they say delivers 40% less friction than a lubrication strip.

The back of the reservoir also has a handy flip-trimmer, which is there for hard to reach places, or to get that extra precision on smaller areas.

After shaving there was no irritation, and my skin is smooth. I am really happy with the results of the shave from the Hydro 5, it is a really good razor which gives a really nice shave. You can check it out over on the Wilkinson Sword website here. Let me know what you think, and check out more of my men’s grooming tips and see what works for you.
