#AD In our home, razors are one of those frequently purchased products that will always be a necessity. The question for us isn’t really “Do we need them?”, it’s more so,”Which are the best to buy“? While I of course use razors myself, the real challenge we were having was finding ones that worked well for my husband. That’s where BIC® Hybrid® razors come in.
While on our perfect razor quest, there were a few things that were a must. We needed something that was not only comfortable for my husband to use, but it also needed to be affordable. In addition to this, sustainability and environmental impact also matters to us as we prefer to support a brand who feels the same. After looking into a few options, theBIC® Hybrid® razors were a win-win and hit all the marks! Here’s how:
BIC® Hybrid® Razor Performance
Being that my husband mainly uses razors on his beard and neck, he wanted something that was flexible and easy to control. The best options for blades that adjust to the contours of the skin are BIC® HYBRID® FLEX3 TITANIUM™, BIC® HYBRID® FLEX4 TITANIUM™ & BIC®HYBRID® FLEX5 TITANIUM™ razors. Each of these bring a unique differentiating element to the razor and have been a game changer for him. My husband loves the clean lines he’s able to achieve with all three of these razors and most importantly how smooth they are to use. Here are a few details about each.
BIC® HYBRID® FLEX3 TITANIUM™ Razor – This razor comes with 1 handle and 5 disposable cartridges. The handle is now made with 90% recycled plastic and comes in an ergonomic shape that allows for enhanced shave control which is great. The razor cartridges each contain a lubricating strip for an enhanced glide and come in a convenient protective case to travel with easily. As the name suggests, the razors on the BIC® HYBRID® FLEX3 TITANIUM™ comes with 3 flexible blades.
BIC® HYBRID® FLEX4 TITANIUM™ Razor – This razor was designed for those with sensitive skin. The BIC® HYBRID® FLEX4 TITANIUM™ comes with 4 flexible blades allowing for a smooth, close shave. To help those who are prone to irritation, each of the replaceable razor heads contains a lubricating strip enhanced with Aloe and Vitamin E. The handle on this design has rubber for an easy grip and features a circular finger grip at the top to remove and release the razor head.
BIC®HYBRID® FLEX5 TITANIUM™ Razor – Unlike the 3 and 4, the BIC®HYBRID® FLEX5 TITANIUM™ is designed with a 5 blade razor head plus a precision edging blade. The razor handle has a comfortable grip with a metal ball finger grip and release to attach and detach the razor. The BIC®HYBRID® FLEX5 TITANIUM™ comes with three razor cartridges.
While the performance and affordability of BIC’s® razors led my husband to initially try them out, it’s their commitment to the planet that made us life long supporters. For my family and I, it’s super important to us that we support brands who’s values align with our own. The ongoing eco-friendly initiative by BIC® truly distinguish them from the rest and is especially important to highlight with Earth Day quickly approaching. Below are a few of the sustainable practices that are currently being implemented.
