Remington SP69 Dual Foil and Cutter Pack
on 17 March 2014
My only problem with this is the high cost for a replacement item. Otherwise excellent and supplied in sealed package. Would buy again.
I have returned to this review one year later with information on foil (and cutter) life. My rechargeable razor used with this expensive foil, has a red LED low on the handle, which flashes when the razor has been used a given number of times. This indicates when the foil should be replaced, according to the Manufacturer. Mine started flashing after about 1 year, yet I was still getting good shaves. I decided to see how long the foil would last. First I switched the razor on, holding the button down for several seconds. This re-sets the counter and gets rid of the red light. A year later I am still using the same foil, i.e. I have already had twice the life allowed by the Manufacturer. When the foil eventually fails I will let you know. At least halving of the annual cost is a good saving I am sure you will agree. The downside? Well, I know from previous experience with foil razors that a bridging section surrounding a perforation in the foil will eventually fail. This causes localised, minute scratching of the skin, tiny areas of redness and irritation. Then is the time to replace the foil. I do not expect to die of sepsis from it, remember we all get small cuts in our fingers throughout life. So any risk is negligible, but you are warned that it exists. Thanks for your interest.
