Why I Love Harry's

Published: 01/16/2017

For as long as I remember I have bought razors at the store. Something as simple as buying razor blades should be cheap and easy, but it is not - that is until I discovered Harry’s Razors. You sign up for a subscription to Harry’s, and they will ship you a quality handle, extra blades, shaving cream, and more. Harry’s is so confident you will like their razors they offer a trial for just $3 shipping - at least this is what I had heard. It all sounded too good to be true, so I decided to give it a try. I headed over to their website and signed up for a subscription. In the time it takes me to walk to my car before I can even drive to the supermarket, I had placed my order. That is 10 out of 10 for simplicity. A few days later a box showed up in the mail from Harry’s, and everything was wrapped neatly in bright orange, deep blue, and white, the colors of the Harry’s brand. The box included directions that were both funny and helpful, and presentation gets a 10 out of 10.

Ok, the moment of truth: how does it shave? I had spent the last few days growing out the little facial hair my genetics would allow, and I was ready to put the blade to the test. I used the shaving cream the the company had sent me, lathered up, and was ready. The razor had five blades all set in a row, and it slid like magic! It even had an additional single blade on the top for precision trimming. This came in handy for cleaning up sideburns. In addition to amazing blades, the handle of the razor was weighted. Holding this razor compared to a normal one felt like comparing an expensive pen to an everyday pen. I felt like had paid for a luxury and it cost me a grand total of $3. I give the quality of the razor and the quality of the shave a 10 out of 10. The shaving cream gets an 8 out of 10 only because the bottle leaks a little in the lid and the smell is a little too strong. In my opinion, I am buying shaving cream, not cologne.

With the shave complete I had reclaimed the smoothness of my face I had lost with my teenage years, but I was not done yet. In addition to to a quality razor and shaving cream, Harry’s sent me after shave lotion. This soothed any irritation left from after the shave. The lotion gets a 9 out of 10 again because the smell is a little strong.

All in all, I enjoyed Harry’s and with everything averaged, they get a 9.4 out of 10. I am now a subscription customer, and this is one of those services I think may actually save money in addition to time. The is so simple it sounds kind of silly, but it really does work.
