Faces beware! I couldn’t find a true link to the evil razors, but this page describes the full Gillette product line. Watch out for the newest edition of the Custom Plus 10-pack of UltraGrip ™ Custom Blades ™. The LubraStrip ™ doesn’t lube anything. These things are horrible! I don’t know if I just got addicted to the Mach 3 or what, but when I tried to save a few bucks and go with this multipack of disposables I definitely made a poor decision. Razor burn? Absolutely. The blades didn’t shave my stubble; they ripped the hairs from my chinny-chin-chin. Ouch! I look like I lost a fight with a weed-whacker. Trust me on this one: Stick with the Sensor, Sensor Excel, or Mach 3.
