From solving hairy problems, to creating that glorious feeling that comes from freshly shaven skin-to-sheet contact, razors are a beauty essential we constantly need to stock up on. So, which brands are helping to shave the day one strand at a time?
This year, we surveyed 700 Australians for their feedback on the razor(s) or razor heads they’ve purchased and used in the last six months. Respondents rated and compared brands on effectiveness, quality, comfort, design, packaging appeal, value for money and overall satisfaction. Brands that met the minimum required survey sample size of 30 responses are included in the results.
Schick was slick in our latest ratings, receiving five-star reviews in six out of seven research categories ─ including overall satisfaction.
Best Women’s Razors
Here are the best women’s razors in Australia, as rated by consumers in Canstar Blue’s latest review:
Schick gave a smooth performance, achieving five-star reviews for effectiveness, quality, comfort, design, packaging appeal and overall satisfaction. Gillette comparably impressed after cleaning up with full marks for effectiveness, quality and design, as did ALDI when it came to value for money.
Although in terms of overall satisfaction, Gillette, Bic and ALDI landed on four stars, while Coles and Woolworths Select ended on three stars.
About the Winner – Schick
Schick is one of the most popular names on the market for all things shaving and personal care, offering a variety of refillable and disposable razors for men and women, as well as shaving prep essentials. For the ladies, there are electric and non-electric options to choose from, including everything from your regular razors and refills to bikini trimmers and multi-purpose razors that you can use for eyebrows and fine hair.
Some Schick razors available include:
Schick Hydro Silk Razor
Schick Intuition Pure Nourishment Razor
Schick Intuition Sensitive Razor
Schick scored a smooth five stars for effectiveness, quality, comfort, design, packaging appeal and overall satisfaction. The only exception was value for money, where it got three stars.
Aussies aren’t necessarily plucking out any ol’ brand when choosing the best razor or razor heads. Our survey found that a third of respondents (30%) always stick to the same brand, with a similar number of people going out to buy razors that provide extra protection for sensitive skin (19%).
The majority of adults have tried multiple brands (41%) and worked their way through different types of razors (36%). While only a handful usually grab the largest packet (14%), nearly one-third (28%) generally stick to whatever is the cheapest option on the shelves.

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included. Results are comparative and it should be noted that brands receiving three stars have still achieved a satisfaction measure of at least six out of 10. Not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The ratings table is first sorted by star ratings and then by mean overall satisfaction. A rated brand may receive a ‘N/A’ (Not Applicable) rating if it does not receive the minimum number of responses for that criteria.
