Men’s Best Razor Blades

by Calyn Ehid

There are a lot of really good options available these days for men’s razors and men’s razor blades and their refills. No matter what your personal preferences are when choosing the best razor for you, there are many different features and benefits that can be weighed to help you choose the one that suits your needs the best. There are different blade types to consider, razor heads that move or don’t move, and razors that are different sizes as well. The best options for you can vary by personal preference.


Features and Benefits

Then there are some features and benefits of men’s razor blades that everyone should consider. For example, there are some razors that are easier to clean and maintain than others. Other razors can be easier to grip than others – often this depends on the size as well. And finally, some razors are sharper than others, but of course if they are too sharp then they are more prone to cut your skin.

The technology of men’s razors has evolved tremendously over the years. There are a ton of options on the market these days, so it is easier than ever to find an option that will work best for your personal preferences. Here we compare some of the best options on the market.

Top 7 Razors on the Market

1. Gillette Mach3 Men s Razor Blade

These men’s razor blades are made with exceptionally strong material – advertised as “stronger-than-steel.” This allows the blade to stay sharp for a longer amount of time. You should be able to get at least 15 comfortable shaves out of this blade, on average. Each refill pack comes with three blades, so therefore should last men quite awhile.

This blade also features a lubrication strip that is designed to help protect your skin. It will provide some extra moisture to keep it from drying up with the blade and turning red. Another important skin-protecting feature is the advanced skin guard that stretches your skin out to prepare the hair to be cut. This also helps to make a more comfortable shaving experience for men.

The flexible head on the razor shapes the razor to your face to help get the shave as close as possible. This helps to make your skin baby smooth. It is a lightweight razor with an easy grip to help your shaving be efficient and easy as possible. However, the handle’s weight is distributed in a specific way also to help with grip and handling.

2. Schick Hydro 5 Razor Blade

Similarly to the Gilette Mach3, this razor blade uses a lubrication system to keep your skin from drying out as you shave. This razor has a Hydrating Gel Reservoir that moisturizes your skin as you shave. The main difference, however, between this razor’s system as opposed to a traditional lubrication system is that it is smoother and has less friction.

This razor also contains five blades to be even longer-lasting. That, combined with its skin-stretching guard bar, gives this razor an especially smooth and close shave compared to many other razors out there today.

3. Schick Quattro Titanium Razor Blade

As the name would suggest with “Quattro”, this razor contains four blades to help you get a precise and close shave. Similarly to the previous two razors on this list, it contains a uniquely-designed lubrication system. This razor’s lubrication strip contains some essential vitamins and other minerals, including vitamin B5, vitamin E, aloe, and jojoba oil. This helps your skin be moisturized, smooth, and soft. Its handle is made from soft, texturized, and well-weighted rubber in order to provide the user with the most ergonomic possible grip. This razor is a great choice to help keep your skin healthy.

4. GoBetter Deluxe Double Edge Safety Razor

This is a particularly unique razor with an unusual yet highly effective design. It has a doubled edge, which is specificially designed to reduce accidental cuts and thereby making this razor safer to use. In addition, it is much easier to change out the blades on this razor, as it has a butterfly-style opening door with a quick release inside. It’s plated with chrome, making it look very sleek and shiny while also preventing rust from setting in after prolonged use. Also, like the razors mentioned above, it has a well-shaped and weighted handle to provide an ergonomically comfortable grip.

5. Personna Right Fit Mach3

This product is specifically just razors, but they are able to be installed onto any Gilette Mach3 razor handle. This way, you can use the Mach3 handle you already like and are used to, but you can try these razor refills if you wish. These blades also have a lubricating gel for an effortless glide across your skin. The triple-coated blades are designed to last you a long time, so you won’t be finding yourself shaving with a dull razor after only a few uses. The best quality of this blade is its flexibility to use on any Mach3 handle – which can save you a lot of money. These come in packs of up to 15 blades.

6. Gillette Fusion ProGlide Manual Men’s Razor Blade

This particular razor boats five ultra-thin blades – which results in an easier, less painful shave that does not tug on your skin. Being another Gillette Razor, this one has the same lubricating strip that the Mach3 razors do to keep your skin from getting irritated. Another interesting feature that is found on these razor blades is the Precision Trimmer found on the backside of the blades. These are great for areas that are more difficult to reach and harder to style – such as your sideburns or around your nose. These razor blades will also fit onto all Fusion 5 razor handles – so much like the Mach3, it has the flexibility to be used with whichever handle you prefer.

7. Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power Men’s Razor Blade

The battery-powered brother to the previous razor is the Fusion ProGlide razor. It is very similar to its manual counterpart in the way the blades are designed and laid out. The handles are also similarly designed for maximum comfort. It also still has the Precision Trimmer for the hard to reach areas. The power version of this razor is more specifically designed to maximize the cleanliness and closeness of the shave, as it easily moves with any contour in your skin. Both of these razors have five optimally sharp blades.
