Only used it a few times so far, but I'm very impressed!

I bought and tried this razor for a few reasons. 1. I hated paying too much for Gillette Mach 3 razors (they do a great job but are too expensive). 2. I'd much rather support an Australian business (not a multi national with questionable ethics) if I could get the same quality at a similar or better price. 3. They put money back into the community (Beehive Industries). As I said, I have only used this a few times so far but I'm very impressed. The first time I hadn't shaved for a week as I'd been on holiday but the shave was smooth and every bit as good as the Mach 3. The razor head is a bit bulkier, and will probably take a bit of getting used to, but it does have 5 blades and a blade on the back which is good for under the nose and sideburns, so kind of negates the larger size of the razor cartridges. The handle is comfortable and well balanced, and looks good on my sink. I'll update this review if anything much changes as i've only used it a few times, but I love that this is an Australian owned product (pitty its not Australia made, but that's the world we live in {for now} that for me, is every bit as good as a Mach 3. I purchased this razor as part of a $49.00 "Luxury gift box", which was very nicely packaged but a bit of a waste on packaging as it was only for myself. It comes with 13 cartridges, 150ml shaving gel and a black handle and in my opinion, very good value. I haven't used the shaving gel yet but i'll add a review when I use it, with an update on my shaving experience.

Dec 2020 update.
I have now used this for almost 3 months and I am still very happy with it. The cartridges last well, but I do still prefer the smaller size of the Mach 3 cartridges. For me they make it just a bit easier when shaving sideburns. Not a big issue and certainly not enough for me to go back to buying Mach 3 razors, just giving you my honest opinion. I have only used the shaving gel once and it was ok. I do prefer a foaming gel but when I give it a proper test i'll update this.

Purchased in for $49.

Great marketing. Average product

Purchased the $15 trial box from OSCAR after getting the proverbials with Dollar Shave Club.

First off, Bravo to OSCAR for their website and product marketing - ticks all the usual boxes for promising the world and then vastly under delivering - read "Made in Germany" "Thousands of reviews" "Thousands of happy customers" and all the other assorted hoo hah that generally goes with online products.

However funnily enough - not a single negative review is present....

Anywho, Razor and sample shaving gel arrived. Packaged beautifully. Very impressive. Too bad the razor doesn't actually shave your face and the gel lathers to the same consistency as liquid soap.

The razor head itself is a cheap bit of flexible plastic with a few semi sharp razors attached that clog up so quickly that its borderline useless after a few passes. Ive so far managed to endure trying to shave with it 3 times - so far I have had to both re-lather and re-shave my face with different products to ensure a clean shave. The razor handle is granted, quite a comfortable bit of equipment though.

All in all, I work for an organisation which requires males to be clean shaved daily. I would not and could not recommend this product to anyone who requires (or desires) any level of consistency or a quality shave on a daily or near daily basis.

This product is a toy, more at home in the bathroom of a teenager who is more concerned with the aesthetics of an all black handle and flashy packaging.

Not recommended

Impossible to replace used blade with new one. The shave wasn't that great either. In the bin it has all gone!

Tailored solution

Over COVID I wasn’t shaving as regularly as usual. My blade usage was well down. No issue with Oscar. Rescheduled accordingly. All good. Refilled just in time and now fully stocked. Thank you.

Not so much a question but the website is pretty male oriented, when picking a plan it shows photos of men with stubble and assumes that’s the only area you’re shaving. Wouldn’t recommend for women seeing as they don’t seem to remember that we exist.

Hey Casuarina,

Thanks for your feedback. Sorry to feel you're neglected, but rest assured we're onto it already. We're planning a new photoshoot, making the site a bit more inclusive.

The male stubble images you referred to are there just as a reference guide. We could only choose one style of image and considering 78% of our customers are male, we chose those. Hope that explains.
