Wilkinson quattro titanium sensitive opinion

If you are at the stage of searching or changing your current razor, you've come to the right place. When I wrote about gillette fusin progilde flexball machines, I wouldn't think about changing it to any other then. However, the spell broke when the blades became more and more expensive. In the comments from you and the news on e-mail I was getting questions about the Gillette alternative.
Wilkinson quattro titanium sensitive machine

Which machine to choose?

Before I decided to buy the Wilkinson razor, I approached the topic of change several times and each time the effect was the same. Another pack of Gillette blades landed in the basket. However, once again at the Rossmann drugstore and seeing the price of 85 PLN for four blades, I came to the limit of pain. I told myself it was time for a male decision - you need to try another company's blades. Just which machine to choose? The only reasonable alternative to value for money was the offer from Wilkinson. Five interchangeable blades with the machine in the set in the same drugstore cost, beware ... PLN 49. However, that I'm not the proverbial Janusz and, apart from the price, the quality counts, I was afraid that the lower price equals the worse quality. There are no useful opinions about Wilkinson Quattro Titanium Sensitive razor on the internet.

Comparison

The first shave and a pleasant surprise, the razor shaves ... And it's like! We are not afraid of irritation and redness, even with longer lasting several days of stubble. Compared to Progilde, the Wilkinson razor works better and shaves more accurately. It is worth recalling that we find four blades in the Wilkinson quattro razor, and five blades in the Gillette razor. I have the impression that the described device adheres better to the skin, maybe this is the secret of a UK company? In addition, Wilkinson blades themselves are more durable. In my case, I replaced them only after over a month of use, the Gillette blades lasted only for a little over two weeks of normal use.

In both blades you will find strips with aloe, jojoba and vitamins. However, here too the progilde razor gives way to Wilkinson, whose moisturizing strip is more resistant to abrasion. Anyway, the strap in the progilde makes the impression more artificial. In the case of a contour blade, this works better in the Gillette razor. The Gillette handle has much more comfortable handling and better ergonometry. Comparing the weight, the machine is lighter than the Wilkinson company.

Summation

When thinking about buying, we have two opposite approaches to product promotion. Oldshool by Wilkinson and a modern design wrapped in a nice box from Gillette. However, I do not intend to pay for a nice box and nice faces advertising Gillette machines, just to feel better. I prefer to be old school to have a less colorful and minimalist razor that just shaves exactly. Wilkinson is better and cheaper to use. I can't wait for the Gillette machine with a vibrant name, e.g. Mach X-Series or Pro Gilde Super Power. Let 12 "push" additional blades with an ice strip and sell them for a cosmic price. The choice is simple - if you do not want to go bankrupt, and do not necessarily want to grow a beard, then switch to the razor from Wilkinson.

    I have been using this razor for 10 years and it is the only one (I mark the ONLY) razor that does not cause irritation after shaving, even when I use it for the first time when the blades are still razor. You can buy 8-10 cartridges for less than PLN 50 on the allegro. At Gillette you pay for marketing ...

      That's right, it was a great machine until they started tinkering with blades ... and I only bought blades in a drugstore, so there was less risk of getting a cheap replacement. After a year I switched back to Gillette Flex Ball. Certainly Wilkinson's razor was cheaper to use, but the blades tended to clog up quickly. In the newer version of the machine described above, which the Company Wilkinson she sent me a real drama for testing ... I had the impression that the machine would fall apart in my hands. Time to change to an electric razor or razor 🙂

    male machines are more efficient than women's ones, they last longer 🙂

      We agree with Dominika, men's blades are more durable, especially in the version from Wilkinson :)

    I guess I'll buy a boy for a gift and steal?

      I wonder if insight one of the women buys machines dedicated to them ?! Hmmm, that's why the shelves in the drugstore are always tightly filled with blades for ladies, nobody buys them because they shave like ordinary disposables. We advise the company, hey, do sets for couples, there is a demand for it;)

      At such a price, it is definitely more profitable to change the machine, invest in an electric machine or go lumberjack;)

    It's beautiful, it looks much better than all the plastics available in stores. And if it fulfills its function well, it is an ideal product 🙂

    I'm also wondering how many blades there will be. and how much actually makes sense. I'm a woman. the most I had a razor with three blades. all in all I didn't see the special difference between 2 and 3.

      Most importantly, the blades should be sharp, durable and perfectly adhere to the skin during shaving. From what Dominika said, the male version of the razor serves her better than the female equivalent.

    instead of shaving with a razor, I recommend much more durable methods, i.e. photodepilation 🙂

      Facial photodilation ?! No thanks, I prefer to grow a beard: D
      Greetings Piotr.

      The device is really good. Let me know if you liked it? Dominika also sneaks up the machine and praises her very much :)

    I am currently at the stage of looking for some sensitive type razors for a teenager so that he does not hurt his mouth after the first shave. With the review, you hit amazingly, so instead of Gillette flexball will be Wilkinson

    • Avatar [Email protected] 17 May 2017 / 18: 37

      Great, I hope that the machine will work perfectly;) The blades should be enough for a long time, even with hard hair.
      Greetings Piotr;)

    "seeing the price of 85 PLN for four blades, I have reached the limit of pain" - good! :)))

    Last time I shaved with a razor some 20 years ago. The injury has remained to this day 😉

      Apparently, your pain limit has already been crossed 20 years ago; D What equipment do you recommend instead of manual razors?
      Greetings Piotr:)

      Gillette is so discouraged by the price of its potential and regular customers so it's not surprising that Wilkinson is benefiting from it. I do not intend to go back to the previous machine, and what equipment do you use ?;)
