This is the best razor going. When Gillette and the others started going to 3, 4, and worse yet, 5 blade razors, they just screwed up. Those bigger razors shave worse than this 2 bladed style. The bigger ones are harder to get into tight areas and they don't shave the contours of the face a well. Stick with the 2 blades and be happy. These companies better realize this. I think the marketing guys were just trying to justify their jobs with the bigger (more blades) razors.

Blade that comes with it GREAT! Downhill

The blade that comes with it is great. You can not buy replacements that match it tho. Even the two extra that come with the razor are different then the one on the razor....Read complete review

Comments about Gillette Sensor Excel, Razor for Men, 1 ea:

Most of the new blade systems have a new pivot point which makes it difficult to get a close shave at the nose/mustache area. The old-style pivot just seems to work better....to each his own, but I will miss the familiar shape of my father's and grandfather's razor....they've served well....

    Comments about Gillette Sensor Excel, Razor for Men, 1 ea:

    Female user who's tired of paying a small fortune for razors and, especially, blades.

    This is as good as those expensive, gimmicky blades that are so over-priced. Performance is excellent, although you may have to spend a little more time getting proper razor alignment in curvy places, such as underarms. Once you've got the hang of that, these are every bit as good as the pricey products.

      Comments about Gillette Sensor Excel, Razor for Men, 1 ea:

      Excellent product, but then what else would expect from Gillette?
      The razor is lightweight and effortlessly glides along the contours of my face and there is never any need to go back and "re-do" areas that are usually hard to clear of whiskers.

      Compact size is perfect for trimming around mustaches and beards; Fusion and Mach3 razor heads are too large and bulky.

        My husband has had his razor for years and decided he should order a back-up for if it breaks. He was happy to see that Drugstore.com had the same style (can't find it around us) [...] he was thrilled to discover they have updated the razor with gripper type material on the handle! Yes, his old razor was o-l-d. :D

          My two sons ages 19 and 20 have used the Gillette Fusion for years and because of money issues and the reviews on this product, I decided to save money and try this out.

          THey love it and say it's just as good and they love the way it shaves!! Wish I had tried this years ago...could have purchased a round trip ticket to Europe or something on what I spent on Fusion razor blades!

            After years of shaving with this razor, I switched to the MAC 3 and then the Fusion. I gave both a try for a few months. Neither of the new razors even come close to this one. Since I cannot find the Excel in stores, I am buying two online from drugstore.com

                I get the closest shave with this razor and Gillette Fusion keeps giving me nicks and bumps! I keep a bunch of blades stocked up cuz I like it so much.

                Advertised as a twin blade razor but comes with a triple blade. Not good advertisement.

                This razor seemed to disappear from stores, so I was very happy to find it here. It was my first real razor and I stuck with it for years until they limited the distribution or whatever decision they made.

                The grip has been updated, the stand is useful and of course the blades are perfect
