Best shaving technique for better results
These are my sort of rituals of shaving to get a smooth, clean and safe shave.
1. Clean your face
It is always better to wash your face with any face wash to remove the dirt and oil from your beard and face skin. It helps the blade to move smoother on your skin and helps you get a cleaner shave.
It also helps the blade to stay clean and sharp for future shaves. This way blades last longer.
2. Use shaving form
Shaving forms are the lubrication that eventually helps to soften your beard hair and helps the razor to move smoothly on your kind. It also helps to prevent tug and pull.
3. Lotion it
After every shave applies an antiseptic after the shaver. It helps in many ways.
Which razor blade gives the cleanest shave?
It all depends on how you use it. If you are the kind of person like me who —
- Shave 3 times a week
- Wash face with facewash before shaving
- Use shaving form
then your razor will last longer.
I’ve personally used most of the razors that Gillette offers in India. And I think Gillette Fusion gives the cleanest shave with 5-blade shaving technology and its blades are closer together than other razors reducing pressure on each blade which as a result gives a sharp, clean shave and mostly without any cut.
Which razor blade last longer?
If you are low on budget then Gillette Guard is a better choice. If you use blades after a shaving ritual like mine, it can last more than a month.
Whereas overall Gillette Fusion Series razors last longer but they are a bit on the expensive side. They last for 3-6 months, depending on the use and your hair type. Yes, it also depends on hair type. My friend’s blade lasted for only 3 months. He has thick beard hair, whereas mine last for 5 months as my beard hair is moderately thick.
Which Gillette razor blade is safest?
Gillette’s Fusion series and March 3 series blades are safest due to their design for less tug and pull with higher contact with contour and also have lubricants.

Best razor for students who are on a budget?
