In the last week it has already announced, a new razor has moved into my bathroom. The Hydro 5 Sense by Wilkinson Sword. From the middle of February 2018 this is commercially available , reason enough for me to take a closer look at the razor with pressure-regulating technology and to report on my experiences.
The wiser gives way: Wilkinson’s Hydro 5 Sense
The quote “The wiser gives way” is not without reason associated with the new razor by Wilkinson Sword. Because that’s exactly what he does. He gives in when it matters. But let’s take a closer look.
The pressure regulating technology of the Hydro 5 Sense promises that the razor will respond to each individual user. For this purpose, Wilkinson relies on a unique mechanism in the shaving head, which gives way depending on the force applied when shaving, sometimes more less.
Put simply, the principle of the Hydro 5 Sense works as follows:
- If you press too hard while shaving, the razor head gives way and absorbs excess energy.
- If you exert less pressure, the Hydro 5 Sense returns to its original position and thus reacts individually to the respective user.
This rather simple-sounding solution was introduced to the new razor by Wilkinson Sword in the form of pressure-regulating technology and thus contributes to a better shaving result. Anyone who shaves regularly knows that too much pressure can cause skin irritation. This is now over.
Less skin irritations in everyday life – I am convinced
An innovation that I like to test in everyday life. Because especially when it has to go fast in the morning – usually always – there is no time for a shave in peace. The time pressure increases the pressure felt on the razor. After all, more strength means that your own beard neck has disappeared faster again. So at least the naive wishful thinking …
That’s just not the case. Of course, the stubble disappeared after shaving. Remain redness and spots. Looks in my opinion but not better than a not properly shaved beard.
The fact that the Hydro 5 Sense by Wilkinson inherently assumes the task of avoiding skin irritation by its pressure-regulating technology, therefore, certainly inspires. Not only on the product packaging knows the razor with its advantages to convince me, but also in practice.
For me as a user, nothing changes. Soap the beard with shaving cream, let it dry a bit and then shave. When it comes to pressure, you do not need to worry, this is regulated by the Hydro 5 Sense. Just shave in the usual way. And behold, not only the beard stubble has disappeared; Skin irritations and redness are also not visible.
Another plus, the skin is already being cared for during shaving. Again without direct intervention on my part. But how automatically by the Hydro 5 Sense blades. These have the innovative gel reservoir instead of an ordinary glide strip. This already lays on the skin during shaving like a protective film. This in turn ensures less friction and optimal care even during shaving.
Individual and optimal shaving experience for every man
Two different replacement blades: “Comfort” and “Energize” are the right solution for every man for different skin needs. The Hydro 5 Sense blades “Comfort” come with herbal extracts and a calming effect. “Energize” uses menthol as an ingredient, which leaves an invigorating feeling on the skin. Wilkinson Sword thus distances itself from one-fits-all solutions and focuses on the individual needs of the man.
The Hydro 5 Sense was developed with the requirement to meet individual needs. This is underlined by the new men’s shaver just because it provides the skin with the right ingredients during shaving. The shaver offers a shaving system that adapts to the consumer, allows for an individual and optimal shaving experience and cares for the skin at the same time. Almost, three at a time.
Conclusion for the Hydro 5 Sense by Wilkinson Sword
The approach of the Hydro 5 Sense appeals to me: A men’s shaver that adapts to the individual needs of the man. Be it through the pressure-regulating technology of the razor or through the replacement blades for different skin needs. A razor designed for the person who uses it and does not commit itself to being the classic one-fits-all solution by its very nature.
During my test I was particularly impressed by the new, pressure-regulating technology of the Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5 Sense. You could focus on shaving yourself without worrying about pushing too hard or not. This compensates for the razor by the new technology independently and thus guarantees a consistently positive shaving result. Even the shaving-typical signs such as redness and skin irritations were not visible. But it would not be as if you would miss them. Or?
