I have MEGA hard well water, and I have found that omega (in the black tub) works best with it. I love going on vacation and using my Taylor of bond street sandalwood soap, but our water is just too hard for most! (have not tried poraso!)

Was my immediate thought this morning!

It's all about marketing! No regulars for shave quality! And it works! They make millions!

How do you sleep at night when hysterisis is such a problem for customers yet the whole multi-blade thing is pushed as being a good innovation?

(only kidding I'm sure you can sleep at night, but the question is still valid)

Those are called cartridges. The company is in business to make money. The price also reflects the amount of R&D that is put into them and the equipment they're built on.

As someone once said, it's the best shave in the world. You're paying for the best shave on the planet. How many times in your life can you say that?

Which plastic razor are you talking about? The razor is the handle, the cartridge is the part with the blades.

IT's been proven a good innovation. The Fusion Proglide is the closest shave in the world, better than any double edge and much closer than any barber shave.

Is it for everyone? No. Because not everyone's skin is the same.

But based on our test results the Proglide wins. We have those claims on our packaging and we can back them up.
