I don't notice anything more "sensitive" about this razor in comparison with any of the other 5 blade razors out there. It is very irritating on the neck, like they all are. I ended up with red bumps on my neck. The Gillette Trac II and Gillette Sensor Excel, both 2 blade razors, are far less irritating on the neck. Also, this razor doesn't do a good job on sideburns at all. It's very difficult to get a straight line. I like that it pivots, but that's about it.
