Doobie Reviews the Equaline Matrix Razor

mach3.jpgI’d probably grow a beard if my girlfriend let me. She obviously has way more sense than I do. I have been brainwashed into the general consumer thinking that I need a major brand razor with expensive refillable blades. Thus, I shave with a Gillette Mach3. Doobie has found a lesser-known razor that he feels is superior, the Equaline Matrix. Equaline is a brand developed by the Albertsons chain of stores, and the product can only be purchased therein. (Alas, no Amazon.com link to the product is available.)

Here’s a bit of Doobie’s review:

The first shave seemed decent. Not blow me away decent, but good. Of course, I had a two-day growth on my face, so that may have factored in. But after that it was smooth sailing. The shaves were as good as the Gillette Sensor, if not better. But that’s not the best part. My stubble can render a new Gillette Sensor blade inoperable after two shaves…sometimes three. Ever since I’ve been using the Matrix, I’ve been able to squeeze out up to a *week* of shaves before changing the blade. A WEEK.
