I have never wrote a review and I buy things on Amazon all the time. I saw a few other people write reviews that said that these blades were not shaving as well as the originals that came with their Schick razor. I bought these because they were a few dollars cheaper. They did not come in a box which makes me think that they may be returns or expired(if that is possible). What I do know is that these blades do not shave as well as the originals. I shave my head almost everyday and these were giving me razor burn from the first time that I used them, which is very unusual because new Schick Hydro 5 blades usually work wonderfully. I returned and bought the original ones that come on a box for a few dollars more.

Items do not seem to be actual Schick Hydro products, but some kind of knock-off. Items were not sent in Schick-branded material, but in a grey plastic bag. So far, about half of the blades are totally dull - they would not cut anything (and, yes, I did try to actually cut my finger with them). They were about as successful at shaving my beard as using a butter knife would. Actual Schick Hydro 5 blades are great and I've never had an issue with them. As these were non-branded and of such poor quality they can only be knock-offs.

The Schick Hydro 5 Razor Blade Refills are a great product. The most significant disadvantage to these blades is, of course, the price. These blades are expensive. You're basically paying 31 / 8 = $3.80 for each blade. General blade degradation requires replacement every two weeks. So you are spending 3.80 / 14 = 27 cents each time you shave. A 27¢ shave.

But the Hydro 5 works really well for shaving a face. When shaving the sides of the face and jawline, the flip trimmer remains closed. With five blades, each stroke gives a very close cut while the back guard prevents any nicks or cuts. The moisturizing line is the last point of contact and soothes the face. When shaving areas that require precision, such as under the nose, the flip trimmer can be folded back. Now the back guard is not in the way and you can get to hard to reach areas for the perfect shave.

One downside to the Schick Hydro 5 is that it is not suitable for manscaping at all. For chest or pubic areas you are much better off going with a double blade system without the guard such as Gillette Sensor Men's Razor Blade Refills, 10 Count, Mens Razors / Blades.

Overall, I find great value in these blades and I will continue to use them. This is a loss lead product for Schick though, you get the initial razor for under cost and Schick recoups over time by selling the refills. But at 27 cents a shave, there is still strong value here. Just don't use these for any areas other than the face. Recommended.

This is the best razor I have used. Period. After a lifetime of Gillette, this was the blade that I made the switch on. The blade lasts longer than any other I have used, and the flip up allows you to get up under the nose. This version has a longer lasting lubricant than the previous version which is a plus, because the blade edge used to last much longer than the lubricating strip. Despite there being 5 blades on the razor head, there doesn't feel like a lot of drag, and the shave is very smooth and very close. This one isn't even related to the Quattro, which I didn't like at all, but I do alternate between this one and the Hydro 3 which has only 3 blades, a smaller head, almost as good of a shave, but no flip up.

I think these might be knock-offs. Came in the labeled trays but not boxes, just shrink wrapped trays. The blades feel scratchy while shaving and do not leave my skin smooth even after multiple swipes. Still feel a faint stubble. The disposable of this I tried first was finally the razor I was looking for: no scraping feeling, super smooth and long lasting shave. NOT the case with these refill blades. VERY disappointed.

I think these are the best blades ever. They last forever and are the smoothest. Far superior to any Gillette product.

Good shave for a good price. Actually, the price was just as low as they advertise on those shave clubs. I tried one of those and their "German" blades destroyed my face. No nicks or cuts with these.

Horrible. Very dull. Changed blades twice in less than a week. Sending them back.
