The bump fighter razor promises to leave you razor burn free. It seems as if it was designed for African American men (although I am not but still love to use it) because many black men suffer from Pseudofolliculitis barbae (ingrown hair and razor bumps) on a daily basis.
But like I mentioned, anyone can use it. Any man with coarse or curly facial hair, pretty much anyone who shaves their pubic area, etc.
WHAT I USE IT FOR
I personally just use the bump fighter razor for shaving my pubic hair because I used to get major irritation and bumps on my pubic mound if I shave every day. When I was younger this never happened, but as time went on razor burn started becoming more of a problem for me.
ABOUT THE RAZOR
The razor has a “bump guard” which ensures the blade doesn’t cut the hair lower than the skin, thereby solving pretty much all your shaving bump problems.
When I first got it I noticed it looked different from most typical shavers. It has these grooves on the blade, which I guess cause it to work the way it does. The blades also slide on and off from left to right or vice versa. They don’t snap on like the razors I was used to.
It’s nothing fancy like those girly razors you see in commercials, but I could care less. It’s comfortable and keeps my pubic area looking “fancy” which is all that really matters to me when choosing a shaver.
It’s black has a rubberized grip. Soft to the touch and lends to a comfortable shaving experience.
THE ONE PROBLEM WITH BUMP FIGHTER
Since it doesn’t cut the hair down below skin level, it probably wont be the closest shave you’ve ever experienced. Don’t get me wrong, you won’t be full of stubble after you shave, but you may grow stubble sooner than you would with a regular shaver.
For me, this is not a problem because the lack of skin irritation means that I can shave with this razor every day and keep smooth that way. It’s less of a hassle for me, but you’d have to decide for yourself if that’s what you want to do.
MY OPINION OF THE BUMP FIGHTER SHAVER
It’s a must for anyone who’s bothered by razor burn. I understand there are some lucky bastards out there who never suffer from any kind of skin problems, and if you’re one of them maybe you want a razor that cuts the top layer of skin and chops the hair down really short as that kind of shave would obviously be smoother.
I haven’t felt this smooth in years and I’m totally happy that I found the bump fighter.
