DO NOT BUY!!


These blades only last a couple of shaves, and clog too easily to be of much use!

Took me twice as long to shave with these blades due to constant clogging!

that was fun while it lasted!

I bought one of these on a wootoff. I use it for shaving my head. Works wonderfully. So much smoother than any other razor I have used.

To sum this up...Most thought this one sucked. Some thought it was O.K. Most women liked it better then most men.YMMV!

Do not buy! These are horribly designed. They don't shave at all and when you bend them to the correct angle to finally shave, they clog in less than a stroke and don't rinse out. Check out the last time woot posted this stuff to see what others had to say. What an awful product.

I shaved with these once, then threw the rest of the blades away. Could not have been more disappointed. Remington should be ashamed to have their name on such a poor product.

Bought this in the last Woot off. This is about the worst razor I have ever used in my life. The razor handle is awkward and difficult to maneuver properly, as it shifts by design and is not locked into place. It is impossible to apply pressure as you shave, and thus, it leaves a number of unshaved spots on your face. The blades themselves are not bad, but the razor handle is so difficult to use that it renders this deal useless. I'd rather use a throw away plastic blade.

I'll throw this in again before the hate train rolls up to the station.

Especially for the price, it is worlds better than disposables.

And of course when you're comparing it to a $30+ razor, it's gonna be worse. It is a little awkward to shave around the jawline, but definitely not as bad as people will claim it as.

If woot ever decided to send out a box of crayons again, having multiple cases of these blades would be the ultimate bag of cheese.

that was fun while it lasted!

2/5 stars. Probably wouldn't buy again.

Horrible razor, clogged way too often, hard to clean, tough to get at your mustache. Sorry Woot, but I just can'y sit by and watch people get suckered into this. It IS better than disposables, but nowhere close to a mach 3 or similar.

worse razor ever- threw it in the garbage after the first use. Saving money for the skin graft i need to replace the skin it peeled off. Don't buy it.

How could one person hate them and the next person love them? I don't know but I'm one of the people who love them. I bought them here on three separate occasions and now have enough for months into the future. I find they give me a very good shave, no nicks or cuts and only a fraction of the cost of the big "G". If you have not tried them, I suggest you give it a try now.

In for 3, best razor for the money and far less in price than a mach 3. They don't clog if you clean them properly.

These blades are not worth any amount of money. Go to Amazon and check out the reviews there.

I agree with bpr2 on the clogging issues. I use them for travel which I do a lot of and one head can make it for a few shaves. I only have to shave three times a week so for less hairy dudes these are a decent cheap alternative too my Fusion. I'd stick with the fusion for important days/nights but for work these are fine for me. Just expect to have to go over the same spots a few times. Takes 3 times as long to shave with these compared to the higher end razors like a fusion but hey...its like 8 bucks so while I won't buy again it was worth the experiment.

Reviews off of Amazon are relative, you can't always believe the hype dude.

I bought them when they were on Woot the last time, and what everyone is saying is true, they clog, and the blade angle due to the handle just doesn't feel right.

They are better than a throw away, and the price might make them an alternative. If they were really any good, they wouldn't be on Woot at that price

I've been using the first blade for 3 weeks now shaving every other day. They are no fusion blades from Gillette, but for the price I would certainly buy again and again. I've had no issue with clogging...I rinse the front of the blade instead of the back like my fusion. The handle does make it a little awkward to get used to...but I've been able to adjust and can't find any reason to complain. I bought them in October and was afraid to try them because of all the haters, then finally my fusion was all used up and I decided to try them. I was pleasantly surprised. To sum this up... if you don't want to spend lots of money on shaving these are a viable alternative. They do not perform like a $40 razor, but I will definitely get my moneys worth and so much more. Try them... what $8.00

I like buying from woot (moreso a few years ago, when it seemed the deals were A LOT better). I don't comment often, but when I am extremely disappointed in something, I do. DO NOT buy these razors, I did last time and I am extremely disappointed. Too many cons to list...trust me you deck the halls these razors. I threw them away...was never more disappointed in ANY product I bought from ANY site.

I would like to point out that for the same price I can buy 100 DE Derby blades and replace them every 3 shaves for the same price as this "deal" as well as get a better shave in the process. Well really they would be less because shipping would be included.

GARbage. HORrible. If you have a thick, wiry, manly beard, and don't shave daily, you will hate this.

If you have peach fuzz, this may work for you.

Just a tip, but shaving isn't the main cause of blades going dull. Its actually the water left over on the blades after you shave. Just dry of the razor after each shave and you'll see for yourself how long the blades last! You can either use a hair dryer out a towel to dry.

You'll be thanking me later!

I draw the line at two Blades! Anything beyond that to shave with sounds more like a Saturday Night Live routine! 5 blades!! Really? Talk about over kill to the point where apparently (according to most of the reviews) it doesn't even work without alot of clogging.

This item should be the impetus for Woot to offer a new kind of "special" sort of like a Woot off. Woot should just do 24 hours featuring one product an hour that got the worst reviews! Sort of like "If you buy it, you can't say we didn't warn you!" kind of thing!

I got these about a month ago off of deal woot. They were pretty good for the price, but the shave from them were all right. I got about 4-5 shaves out of a blade before I had to put a new one on. That is about a week worth of shaving for me. Mine also clogged up pretty good by then. I normally strop them against my arm too.

Mach 3 disposables are actually pretty decent too. I bought these the last time on woot and finally threw them out after trying to use them repeatedly

Like everyone else has said. These blades clog after one use. can not rinse the hair out of the blades. they're basically a one time disposable blade. they do cut well, but clog way too easily

I didn't have the clogging issue, but they get NOWHERE near close enough in tight spots. Shaving under your nose is nearly impossible…even Voldemort couldn't get a close shave under his nose! Great blades, but so big that it just didn't do the job. I had to use my old razor after this one.

Do yourself a favor. Simply NOT buying this will not suffice. Slam your laptop lid down, throw it in the toilet, flush, flush, flush then take it out and beat the snot out of it mercilessly with the biggest hammer that you have. If you have a blow torch, ignite it and melt your device completely down.

Not only should you not buy these blades, you should make absolutely sure that no one can use your computer for the same.

It's not just the right thing to personally do but the right thing for you to do to help your country.

God bless you, your face and America.
