For fairly sensitive skin, give these blades a try. It’s amazing how different blades gives different shaves. I have tried about a dozen different blades since last June trying to find the right ones for my face - something not too sharp and not too dull - the Astra blues are great. They have given me 4 shaves on one blade very effectively and hold up to pre-shaves and heavy creams. They don’t rough up your neck line and gives an all around smooth close shave every time.
These blades are on the sharp side. For now, I will put these to the side until I am better able to shave better.
Cannot deny the popularity of the Astra Green line & I’m a big fan already. I’ve been through one tuck of the SS blue and would not rank these as high the greens. Just a tad “bitey” on more than two days’ growth. Left a tad irritation on MJ neck that the greens never do. Half the fun is the test drive. Thanks RE for providing the community with such variety, quality goods & exemplary service.
After ordering the "sensitive pack" last time that included several kinds of double edge razors, I narrowed the field down to the Personna, Gillette Silver and the Astra Superior. All give a great shave for my sensitive skin.
Maybe someday I will narrow down to one...but why when I can purchase a variety of my favorites!
