Regs: if you want a king of shaves pack for super cheap, jump on the treatme website quick smart (i.e. before midnight tuesday):

http://treatme.co.nz/Deal/Auckland/king-of-shaves-oct11cf  

$25 for a King of Shaves Pack inc. 1 x Azor Warp Razor, 10 x Cartridges, 2 x Shave Gel Delivered Nationwide (value $62.85)



Thank you for the heads up, I was able to order it.

I had problems around the neck area and I changed the way I shaved about 2 years ago to using King of Shaves Azor Razor and the blue gel along with changing the blade every week so that it was always sharp. This has helped heaps. The main issue was likely using the blades for to long which ends up damaging the skin rather than cutting the hair. I am keen to try the other sensitive gels mentioned so see if any further inprovements can be had. Interesting thread to read.

So I got one of those Azor razors and king of shaves sensitive skin shaving gel.
Only used it twice, will give it a bit longer but so far not at all impressed.
Doesn't shave as close as my last two.
And the gel kinda burns! Waaaaay too much eucalyptus in it. Makes my eyes water

robjg63: I have used a Schick Quattro shaver for a few years - seems basically ok,


Yep best one out there I reckon.  The blade lasts much longer than other brands without ripping your face!  After 4 blades I don't really see the point of more.

keewee01: Review of King of Shaves Razor

I just wanted to report in here as I bought a King of Shaves razor a while back when it was on special at Countdown.

I changed to the King of Shaves from a Schick Quattro.

It took a couple of days to get use to the different (flexi) design on it, but now that I am I find it more natural. It took my face about 5 days to get use to the new razor, but now that it is, it is fantastic.

I am finding it is giving me a better shave than the Schick Quattro and a far superior shave to what the Gillette Mach 3 gave me (yeah, I know it's not quite apples-with-apples...)


I got a free King of Shaves Razor, used it till it was blunt, but went back to the quattro and threw the King Of Shaves out.

i havent tried the KoS gel, but it works great for me with the Nivea Sensitive shave gel.

The TreatMe deal was cheaper still - the King of Shaves Pack (included 1 x Azor Warp Razor, 10 x cartridges, 2 x Shave Gel, 1 x Face Scrub and delivery) all for $25 (delivered!!). Saving of over $28 (so yes - under half price!)

Unfortunately all sold out now.

I managed to nab 2 packs for myself. That should keep me going for a very long time!!

To be honest, not impressed with the king of shave razors.
I'd prefer to use a blunt knife.

Used it the last week (so 2 times thus far) but I've changed razors before and never found them this crap.
Might have to swap back to my Gilette Fusion. Thats been a pretty decent razor and gives a decent shave. Even with a blunt blade its better than this "King" of shave.
