The discounters and their products for shaving - The Aldi razor blades
Discounters all over the world offer the broadest product ranges for end consumers. From everyday foods to seasonal “popular items” to care products, customers are left with nothing to be desired when shopping. Of course, with such a large product range, no beard care aids should be missing.
But what good are Aldi razor blades or those of its ilk really? Can the razor blades keep up with the high-priced ones from the competition? And what about a professional razor? Many questions that we feel obliged to answer to our large community of readers and therefore address the topic of Aldi razor blades in particular in today's Charlemagne Premium Blog Post. The largest discounter in our latitudes. Have fun while reading!
The Aldi razor blades from the Süd and Nord discounters
The Albrecht brothers divided the German market into two areas in which Aldi Süd and Aldi Nord still operate today. This sometimes resulted in different products tailored to the origins of potential consumers or simply changed product names and manufacturers.
As an example, Aldi razor blades from the manufacturer “MAN Razor” and their replacement blades are offered at Aldi Süd branches. The Aldi razor blades Ombia Men are sold in the southern branches. Ultimately, however, this is not the deciding factor, because the goods are usually suitable but still much cheaper replicas of well-known manufacturers such as the market leader Gilette.
The practical test of the Aldi razor blades – what’s the fun?
At this point we probably have to add the monetary factor. Basically, we have found that most of the simple razors from the discounter, i.e. the Aldi razor blades, are rather simple in their design and design. For a daily wet shave for a man who doesn't have a beard, to get back to the cost factor, it's definitely a win-win situation, because the consumption of the individual Aldi razor blades, which are cheap, is less significant in the long run than the (possibly) slower one Wear and tear of more expensive blades.
The cheap version of Aldi razor blades is simply made to achieve a result.
Of course, complex contours or the like cannot be achieved with either the high-priced blades from the market leaders or the inexpensive Aldi razor blades. Beard wearers who see their goal in the area of beard grooming are already on the move in other areas. The razor.
The razor and its advantages for beard wearers
The razor, whether with a fixed or interchangeable blade (you can of course find more information on the subject in our Charlemagne Premium Blog), has the advantage of being able to be guided extremely precisely and is therefore particularly suitable for caring for beard contours. Unlike the previously described system razors, such as those with the Aldi razor blades described, these knives are suitable for a complete wet shave and serious contour trimming.
As you have read, the Aldi razor blades are not the worst choice for a certain group of people. If, to give just one example, you have to shave every day for work reasons, these blades are a great alternative to the expensive ones from the market leader.
If you are naturally drawn to beard grooming, there is only one thing: the razor and the acquisition of the quality of real shaving. If you are interested in the topic, any barber you trust will of course be able to answer your questions not only during a visit but also via email, because:
“A healthy and well-groomed beard is important for a real man, that’s why we offer everything you need to keep yours doing so.”
As barbers with over 20 years of experience in the trade, we were looking for styling and care products that convinced us 100%. There were some good products on the market, but none that really gave us what we needed. After some consideration, we decided in 2014 that we wanted to develop our own series. For two years, every evening after work in the barbershop, we used every free minute to work on developing the recipes in our basement. When it came to ingredients, the best was just good enough for us. We purchased the best available jojoba oils in Morocco, and argan oil from Italy.
After two years and numerous tests, we had our first product range, with which we have been delighting our customers ever since - we think 98% positive reviews speak for themselves. This has of course been continuously developed since its official launch in 2016. This is just one of the reasons why Charlemagne Premium products have won not just one, but several comparison tests in recent years.
