I'm a woman and I love these! I have incredibly coarse hair, so don't let the "woman" part fool you- these are high quality razors. They're well built and last longer than my Venus razors (which I think are rather cheaply built). I can get a very smooth shave in 1-2 strokes, no nicks and cuts. I use these everywhere- legs, bikini, etc. The only con is that there's no guard/cover for the cartridge on the razor, so it's not the most travel-friendly razor, but I still love it.

If you have not tried the 3 blade version of this product then I suggest you also try that first before committing to this one. I didn't notice a much better shave with 5 blades except that they charge more for this product. There was also an advantage to a smaller 3 blade razor. I was able to shave closer around curved areas of my face compared to the bigger 5 blade.
The 5 blade felt like I was using a giant brick to my face which made shaving smaller areas like under the nose not as convenient. The 5 blade shaver can hold the 3 blade razors so it's easy to test and try them out for yourself.
Overall I didn't think 5 blades was worth the extra expense. The 3 blades are just as good and even better for situations I've mentioned above. I do like the Schick Hydro but only the 3 blade version.
Great blades - cuts close, last a long time - typically get a month's worth of daily shaving from a cartridge, and then use the used cartridge for various grooming for a long time. This is a very good value.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
– While the goal of hair removal may seem pretty simple, most men have trouble finding a razor that delivers the close shave you want without damaging your skin. Schick is one of the most trusted brands in shaving. The brand created the Hydro 5 razor to help you target unwanted hairs easily while reducing irritation. For added convenience, and to help you save some money, you can pick up Schick Hydro 5 Blade Razor Cartridge Refills when your razor head starts to wear out. These cartridges give you all the same benefits of your Hydro 5 razor without needing to replace the handle.
Advanced Blade Technology
Manufacturers have been working to perfect the 5-blade cartridge razor for years, and the Schick Hydro 5 is an excellent example of the latest in shaving technology. Each cartridge has five Ultra Glide blades to evenly distribute the pressure of the razor on your skin and give you the closest possible shave. These blades also each have individual skin guards, which reduce friction by doubling the points of contact between the blades and your face. When it comes time to address tricky areas like your sideburns, you can flip back the cartridge and use all five blades for precision trimming. This is a major upgrade from other razors that only include one trimming blade.
Added Comfort Through Hydration
Perhaps the most important feature that sets Schick Hydro 5 cartridges apart from competitors is the inclusion of a Hydrating Gel Reservoir that releases lubricating gel with each stroke of the razor. A combination of aloe and vitamin E, this water-activated gel hydrates your skin and allows the razor to glide smoothly across your face. According to manufacturers, the reservoir lasts up to twice as long as the lubrication strips on other razors, which effectively doubles the life of each cartridge.
