Did anybody else get an e mail from UCAS media back in July with a Gillette advert saying they were sending you a razor ?

"Here at Gillette, we aim to help men look, feel and be the best they can be all the time. As you are approaching a new chapter in your life, we will be sending you a new Gillette FlexBall razor so you can look your best and have one less thing to worry about! "

Have they changed their mind on sending out so many freebies or has anybody actually got one yet?

Is this how bad times are now, that UCAS have to actually bribe people with free razors.

They're so expensive that even UCAS can't afford them ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Clearly UCAS thought that their marketing skills to send people sanitary/shaving items would go down smoothly (no pun intended)

Hahaha, I actually got mine.

Decent razor actually, but the lubricating strip dries and dies in about 3 shaves.

Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5 is better :yep:

I've sent UCAS media an e mail, we'll get to the bottom of this farce

"Dear Sir / Madam,
I was thrilled to receive your correspeondence on Tuesday the 26th July claiming that my “ #Firstreal razor” was on it’s way to me. Whilst this assumption was incorrect, having owned many a razor, I still looked forwards with apprehension to the arrival of my lovely new razor. However, this day never came, and my patience has reached an end. Can I please have my free razor as I really am getting quite hairy, having aged considerably since the free razor was first proposed to me."

Hi Neil and thanks for your patience.
I've received confirmation that the Gillette razors are being distributed and yours should arrive within 7-10 working days.
I really hope this helps.

Kind regards,
