This razor is fantastic! I used to use the Schick Xtreme 3 disposable razors and really liked them but decided that the disposables weren't environmentally friendly so wanted a non-disposable razor. I'd used the Schick Quattro disposable razors in the past and was floored but didn't continue buying them due to the price but thought the non-disposable version would be a better deal. Ok, all I have to say is I'm so glad I don't have to shave as often. When I first used the razor it didn't feel like I was shaving (i.e. my skin wasn't being scraped by the razor, no sensation of the razor on my skin, etc). In fact I thought the razor wasn't working at all so I would look constantly to make sure the hair on my legs were being removed! Not only were they being removed but I didn't feel a thing while using them. The razor glided so gently and effortlessly on my legs and underarms and left such smooth skin behind that I couldn't stop touching it. I no longer have to shave my underarms every day - I can go 2 or 3 days and have the same amount of stubble as I would have 1 day after using the Schick Xtreme 3. I can go even longer without shaving my legs. Also, with the Xtreme 3 I felt the razor on my skin even with shaving cream. I still use shaving creme with the Quattro and CAN NOT feel the razor on my skin. I'm now confident enough in the Quattro's ability to shave that I don't check to see if it's actually working. Oh, and another thing, I really like the suction cup they provide. It gets the razor out of the way of the other bathtub items and allows it to dry well to avoid rusting, etc. Trust me you won't go wrong. If you think you need to 'feel' a razor to know it's working then you haven't tried the Quattro.

I have never written a product review before but I am going to for the Schick Quattro. I have been shaving for 25 years. The Schick Quattro is the most expensive and, honestly, the worst razor I've ever purchased or used.

The Schick Quattro has 4 blades, and yet the least close shave I've ever gotten, aside from those 10 for 59 cents plastic razors you sometimes get stuck buying on vacation.

Shaving shouldn't take a lot of thought, or a lot of time. With my usual razors I lather up, and swish swish swish swish swish -- one leg done; tap tap clean razor; swish swish swish swish swish -- other leg done; tap tap clean razor; one-two-three underarm done; one-two-three other underarm done; maybe 7-8 strokes each side of bikini and... SCENE (we're done).

With the Schick Quattro it's necessary to go over and over and over and over and over and over your legs. It's not necessary to have some fancy NASA engineered head that swivels and arches and does a little shaving dance for you. What value does that add? Shaving's just not that complicated. Or interesting. Or fun. But the Schick Quattro sure makes it complicated. But not at all interesting or fun.

The blades of the Schick Quattro are just too many--are packed too closely together--and they just do NOT shave the hair. That's their job!

Furthermore, it's impossible to clean the the Schick Quattro razor between swipes. Most of us shave in the shower. To clean the razor you tap it against the tub, shower, floor, or wall, and the hairs fall out. With the Schick Quattro, you do that and the head pops off and goes flying across the tub. AND to add insult to injury, doing that doesn't even get the hair/stubble out. So you have to repeat again and again and again---tap tap - head flies off - find it - put it back on - still hair in there - tap tap again - head flies off. Maybe some people are willing to turn off the shower in the middle of the shower and make the tub water run as hard as it can, and hopefully that will force the hairs out, and then turn the shower back on and shave a little more, then turn off the shower and run it under the tub, then turn back the shower---but I know I'm not.

So, you think you've finally succeeded in shaving off most of your hair, but you better check again. And holy smokes - what's this? still more bristles and stubble (this is after already taking 3 times longer than with a normal razor to get that far!) Now it requires at least 3-4 more strokes to get remaining hair off.

That is for underarms and legs. Bikini? Makes me wonder--despite all Schick Quattro's goofy patronizing pseudo-feminine rhetoric--whether they want women to loathe themselves, their bodies, and the need for shaving? For bikini it took 94 strokes with the Schick Quattro to get ride of all the hair on one side, and 88 strokes on the other!! What the heck is that about?

Perhaps Schick thinks if women spend so much time with the Schick Quattro we'll bond with it? Customer bonding may be a reality with, say, an iPhone or a web site (tho not this one, where some Katy Perry, but the reality is: women want to spend the least amount of time with their razor as necessary. We have an agreement with your razor: it does its job, and we get this over quickly and efficiently, don't cut me, and I'll treat you well to increase your shelf-life. The End. It shouldn't be more complicated than that.

As said, I have never written a review for any product, but did so because the Schick Quattro was so expensive and so egregiously awful.

    This razor is good for women's legs as it gets to all the nooks and crannies. The handle is too small to grip with wet, soapy hands though

      Have used this razor for 5 yrs and love it. Used to buy a new one every year when pink and teal colors were available. Now only purple available and who has a purple bathroom! Emailed and called drugstore.com to see if the pink color shown was available and was told if it does not say colors vary it will be pink. So I ordered two - and I got two purple. Threw them away because too much hassle to return. Will not order anymore. Great product but cannot choose color.

        I've used the Quattro for over 2 years now, and will continue using it because the blades seem to last longer than any other I've tried and after many uses, I still get a clean, close shave that doesnt leave razor bumps or chaffed skin.

          I've been using this razor for years now because it WORKS.
          I succumb once in a while to the cheapy 6 razors for $2.99 thinking, "WOW, what a bargain!" Only to be left with irritated skin, bumps, and pimples all over my legs and underarms.
          Yes, these are expensive razors. I agree.
          Save on shaving cream, a better trick for smooth shaving I've found is using hair CONDITIONER to prevent all that irritation.

          Dry your razor well, post-shower, and store somewhere humidity-free to lengthen its life a bit. If you suffer from cheap-razor-bumpitis like I do, go with the Schick Quattro.

              I bought this because it said it came with two refill cartridges. When I opened the package today, there was one on the razor plus one refill cartridge. This is deceptive packaging because I cannot use the razor without one cartridge, yet the term "refill" suggests that it is in addition to the original razor. I feel ripped off and would not recommend buying the product on principle.

For years i have always ended up with a minor razor burn around my pubic and scrotum after i finish shaving. I have tried all kinds of razors made for men and never ever felt as smooth and clean as i do now since i tried the QUATTRO FOR WOMEN razor. Thank you for a great razor.

                I have dark, coarse hair and need to shave every day, especially in the summer. With one swipe of the Shick Quatro, I could tell immediately this was the best and closest shave I have ever had....no stubbles...and that's saying something for my legs. Even the underarms were smoother than I have ever experienced. I shave in the shower and use a body wash, but no shaving cream. I received the Quatro as a complimentary gift with an order of face wash that I purchased on line. I was not asked to write a review, but I just had to share. I went right out and bought a packet.

                  Schick Quattro for women is a good solid razor. The shave was remarkably close but I still managed to never nick myself. It comes with a shower hanger which seems to work well. The body of the razor was heavy but I rather liked that about it. It does need shaving cream, which is a little bit of a hassle. All around though a good razor.

                  Schick Quattro for Women Razor With 2 Refill Cartridges

                   – Many women yearn for effortlessly smooth and touchable legs, but this ideal can be difficult to attain. Razor burn, sensitive skin, ingrown hairs, and other issues can cause shaving to be an unpleasant experience. Fortunately, Schick Quattro for Women is a razor specially designed to help women achieve perfectly smooth skin without any hassle.

                  Optimal Blade Design



                  Some women's razors are designed using just one blade, leading to cuts and frustration while trying to get a smooth shave. The Schick Quattro for Women offers four ultra-thin blades, minimizing the amount of time and effort needed to achieve a silky smooth shave. The razor's pivoting head follows the lines of your body as you shave, making it easier to catch any hard-to-reach hairs. The combination of the optimal blade technology by Schick and the pivoting head razor help to keep your skin healthy and optimally smooth.

                  Comfort While Shaving



                  Blade technology is not the only factor in achieving a close and even shave. It is important to have a razor that feels good in your hand, allowing you to enjoy the shaving process. The Schick Quattro for Women has a soft rubber handle, making for a more comfortable shave. The razor is also designed to improve your grip, providing an easy and even shave.

                  Convenience in the Shower



                  For some people, storing your razor can be a challenge. Whether you live alone or share your shower space with others, it is ideal to keep your razor stowed away to avoid injury. This razor pack comes with a specially designed shower hanger. This ensures that your razor is conveniently located when you need it but safely out of your way when not in use.
