Caring for your razor


Which razor should I choose?

The R1 razor is fitted with a 3-blade Gillette Mach3 cartridge and the X1 razor is fitted with a 5-blade Gillette Fusion ProGlide cartridge. The 3-blade cartridge is more suitable for sensitive skin, while the 5-blade cartridge gives a closer shave. If you already use a Gillette blade, then the choice is comparatively easy. Younger shavers often choose the X1 razor as this has the most modern blade.

How often should I change my blade?

The frequency with which you should change your blade depends very much on you as an individual shaver.  Everybody will have different shaving behaviour from the amount you shave, the thickness of your facial hair, skin sensitivity, the skincare products you use and so on.  Please also follow recommendations from Gillette.

Where can I find replacement blades?

Replacement blades can be found in all major supermarkets and pharmacies around the world, as well as online here. The R1 can take any Gillette Mach3 cartridge model and the X1 can take any Gillette Fusion cartridge model (ProGlide or other).

Which skincare products should I use with Bolin Webb razors?

Any shaving cream, foam or gel can be used with Bolin Webb razors. The choice of skincare product will depend on the shaver’s personal preference.

How do I keep my razor clean?

Razors, stands and travel case can all be washed with soap or detergent in warm water using a nail brush or washing up brush.
