You're in the UK, but here's a list of 3 things to buy and you'll never buy another shaving product again- I came across this stuff about 5 years ago and it's the best shave ever, all that stuff in the supermarkets is so far behind this stuff in terms of ease of shave and quality of product, never mind price, which is just unreal.i would just like to note that in the uk gillette razors are selling at huge discounts in the supermarkets. i was tempted but said no. other brands for the rest of my life. your actions matter. send the message it's working!
These are from an Irish company, but the same could be bought over in the UK easy enough. I can't recommend these products enough, and when this Gilette stuff happened, I was feeling even better about it! This might even be worth a thread in the off topic actually, I'll see.
All in for less than 50 quid, and you wont buy another shaving product for a good few years- or ever!
Razor- it's a long handled version, and probably closer to the standard length. The regular ones are quite short, so not for everyone.
Blades- pack of 100 for 10 quid, doubled edged too so last forever. You can buy more expensive blades, or better reviewed ones, but I've tried all different sorts and they're just as good as any of them, and 1000 times better than any store bought shite.
Shaving cream- you could pick any of them really, and I use a soap stick myself, but this is probably easier, and lasts forever.
