Hydro 5 Power Select | Review

Hydro 5 Power Select | Review

Last week I was lucky enough to attend the launch of the new Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5 Power Select razor.

Held on the 29th floor of London’s Millbank tower – with 360° views over the city – it was the perfect venue to launch a product that Wilkinson Sword really want to shout about.

Even with the facial hair growth of a prepubescent teen (seriously, Movember is but a dream for me), I was pretty excited to give this new razor a go. I’ve been using the Hydro 5 (the predecessor to the Power Select) for a couple of years and have loved how easy it is to use.

So, what’s different about the new Hydro 5 Power Select? Here’s what they say:

Take control with the NEW innovative Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5 Power Select, the ONLY powered razor with 3 vibration settings giving you the ultimate shave comfort.

Ready to be tested!

Switching the razor on and playing with its 3 vibration settings, it doesn’t feel that special.

But using the razor is a completely different experience.

The vibration helps the razor to move quickly and gently across your skin. Using a lower vibration setting on the sensitive neck area aids a smooth and swift gliding motion.

It barely feels like you’re shaving… and I did have to check to see if I had!

Normally I’ll have a little scratch or sore area on my neck, but not with this product. One hour on from shaving, my skin feels smooth and fresh.

So, will a bit of vibration really make a difference? Yes, it will and yes, it does. My old Hydro 5 is going in the bin and I’m now stocking up on batteries for my Power Select!


The Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5 Power Select (with with one changeable head and battery) retails at £12.99. A pack of 4 blades retail at £9.99. Click here to buy
