Personna Twin Blade Plus Disposable Razors, 5-ct. Packs
Great value 85% as good as a Gillette 1/6th the $$
The Personna Twin Blade razor is fairly close to a Gillette Good News disposable. My observation is it gives 85% as close a shave as a Gillette. Considering the Personna is about 1/6th the cost, it should be considered for those in need of a decent razor. Thanks Dollar Tree.
The razor, I tested, didn't cause any bleeding and performed very similarly to Gillette. Although I did find I couldn't get as close a shave to the, much more, expensive disposable razor even if I went several times over the same spot.
I still prefer the Gillette brand but not by much.

I've used these in combination with a real trimmer. Most of the time I will dry shave with these and not have any problems. Cuts close. Will be buying many more.

Personna Non Swivel Twin Disposable with lubricating strip:
These are comparable to Gillette good news, but not quite.
After your 4th or 5 th shave or more with a Good News is what these are comparable to.
The Good News(after a bit worn) and this Personna razor require a different shaving strategy. You cant do repeated long strokes down the face. The Personna is not quite up to that quality of blade.
Rather you must do very short strokes in groups of 4-5 before cleaning the razor and continuining. This method will get a good shave and allow a Good News Razor and a Personna twin blade to approach near some 15+ shaves. However always dip the razor in baby or mineral oil after a shave. This keeps the blade from breaking down through oxidation/rust between shaves and enables one to really use a razor for a long time. This method beats the other option of unneccesarily expensive razors that see no alternative to.
Why? short strokes of 4 or 5 before cleaning?
Well the long strokes produce debris that shoves and fills in between the two blades and deforms or bows the blades while you are shaving. This is very destructive or dulling to the blades.
If this is your style of shaving, repeated long strokes, then of course you may not be happy with the Personna and think not very highly of it. Then go for a more expensive razor. But at Dollar Tree these Personna twin razors are 20cents a piece. This price literally can not be beat. May be worth to try a different shaving style.

This razor gave me the most painful shaves of my life. The blades are extremely dull. I thought it was one, but then tried another. All of them were that way. I won't ever buy this product again
