This Gillette Heated Razor deal could be the perfect excuse you've been waiting for to buy one. After all, the Gillette Heated Razor is quite literally 'the best a man can get' (or a woman can get, to give to a man as a gift). With a built-in, temperature-controlled, heated strip, it gives you the luxury of a hot towel shave, every single morning. But then this set normally costs £124.99, while the replacement blades are £49 a pack, which would pay for a fair number of actual hot towel shaves. But not today, my friends…

And there we were thinking we'd have to wait for Amazon Prime Day for a deal like that.

The first product from Gillette Labs, the Heated Razor is head and shoulders above any other razor and not just because of its adjustable heated bar, which sits underneath the blades on the pivoting and swivelling head. 

It's beautifully designed, feels great in the hand and has a very neat and compact charging station. The battery life is easily enough for a week of shaving. The Heated Razor is also waterproof for easy cleaning and/or use in the shower.

Despite being sold as a slice of everyday luxury, it's hard to get past the fact that the Gillette Heated Razor is usually quite pricey. However it's tempting at £124.99 – just imagine your tired cheeks being caressed by its warmth each morning – and at £74.99 it's… even more tempting.

New blades for the Gillette Heated Razor usually cost about £6 each which, again, is a bit painful. However, subscribe via Gillette and you can get 15% off all future blades – so you pay £19.50 for four. You also have the option of receiving the blades every two, three or four months. Gillette would recommend you replace your blades every few weeks but a lot of men should be able to get away with using one blade per month without too much discomfort. 

Anyway, any financial or facial pain will be soothed away by the intoxicating warmth, elegant styling and impeccable design of the Gillette Heated Razor.

Duncan Bell

Duncan is the former lifestyle editor of T3 and has been writing about tech for almost 15 years. He has covered everything from smartphones to headphones, TV to AC and air fryers to the movies of James Bond and obscure anime. His current brief is everything to do with the home and kitchen, which is good because he is an excellent cook, if he says so himself. He also covers cycling and ebikes – like over-using italics, this is another passion of his. In his long and varied lifestyle-tech career he is one of the few people to have been a fitness editor despite being unfit and a cars editor for not one but two websites, despite being unable to drive. He also has about 400 vacuum cleaners, and is possibly the UK's leading expert on cordless vacuum cleaners, despite being decidedly messy. A cricket fan for over 30 years, he also recently become T3's cricket editor, writing about how to stream obscure T20 tournaments, and turning out some typically no-nonsense opinions on the world's top teams and players.

Before T3, Duncan was a music and film reviewer, worked for a magazine about gambling that employed a surprisingly large number of convicted criminals, and then a magazine called Bizarre that was essentially like a cross between Reddit and DeviantArt, before the invention of the internet. There was also a lengthy period where he essentially wrote all of T3 magazine every month for about 3 years. 

A broadcaster, raconteur and public speaker, Duncan used to be on telly loads, but an unfortunate incident put a stop to that, so he now largely contents himself with telling people, "I used to be on the TV, you know."
