Military Groomed Minus the Razor Burn and Irritation

This post is in partnership with Gillette’s new SkinGuard razor – new at Walmart today.

Being in the military made us conform to a particular lifestyle. From how we handle day to day tasks, chores, and even taking care of ourselves and our beautiful little family. There’s no room for settling for less, or anything but exemplary. For those of you who are or had been in the military or in a military family, you’d know exactly what this means. You mean business when you take care of things.
As most of you know, our family takes pride in sharing newly launched, just released, and even trending products or innovation that simplifies our life and those military-related tasks. After all, why work harder when you can do it smarter? Want a smarter home? Check! Need help with motherhood chores? Check! Self-care and Wellness? Check! But what about grooming and when my husband needs to maintain a certain look on a daily basis? You can check that off too! All thanks to Gillette’s latest innovation – the new Gillette SkinGuard razor!

Here’s the thing, my husband is picky when it comes to finding the right razor for him. I can’t blame him, post-shave rashes are irritating and frustrating. As being part of the military, he must maintain his face cleanly shaven all the time. That is the reason why shaving has always been a part of his daily grooming routine. His razor is his best friend, and from the word itself, it should be the best. As his wife, and as a self-proclaimed savvy shopper … it is my responsibility to help him find the best razor for his needs.

Is there a science to finding the right razor? What’s there to figure out? Can’t you just pick out any and be done with it? All of which are valid questions … and the obvious answer is that YES there’s science behind choosing the right razor, and that is how it is made. If you know more about the product, you’d understand better how it can help with your needs. As far as picking anything out randomly, it is never a great idea. My qualifications for looking for the best razor are:

– Quality
– Comfort of Shave
– Price
– Durability

As the years have passed, technology has been redefining razors and making them better. That being said, one of the most reputable and trusted grooming brands – Gillette, has created a razor that specifically addresses my husband’s skin and routine. The new Gillette SkinGuard razor is their first razor that is designed explicitly for guys who frequently get razor bumps after shaving and have sensitive skin. It has a unique feature between the blades that flattens the skin as and cuts hair at the skin level. The optimally-spaced blades with a special comb in between them reduce tug and pull while shaving and help prevent irritation. Designed this way, SkinGuard draws and cuts hair up to two times in every stroke compared to standard razors you can find in the market that pulls more hair in each stroke which can cause irritation for guys with sensitive skin.

So for those of you who were asking for a razor recommendation, I implore you to check out Gillette’s new SkinGuard razor – not only is it amazing, it is super sleek, lightweight, and mind you … it is absolutely PERFECT to be included in a care package for a beloved service member! Personally, whenever hubby is deployed, I make it to a point to send him a care package every now then. One of the essentials that would make a great addition to ANY care package is this razor. Also I love surprising our troops by including them in the Adopt a US Soldier program. You have no idea how little things and necessities makes a massive difference to our service members.

My husband has sensitive skin, but after trying Gillette’s SkinGuard razor, he never has any problem with razor bumps and irritation. He can shave quickly each day without worrying about his skin, which is really good since getting time back is significant in the military.

  • Amy-Lynn Denham

    Interesting. You know what? I prefer men’s razors. I stole one of my husband’s space handles and use nothing but men’s razors. The shave is much closer and the razors actually seem sharper to me (less pulling) and stay sharper longer!

  • Brianne Tursi Manz

    Razors for men, and some women, can be tricky. Especially when the standards of clean shaven everyday, a razor can be your worst enemy. Sounds like you’ve found the perfect razor for him! I’d like to get this for my husband!
