4.0 out of 5 stars good ergonomics, some compromises, 3 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Philips Series 3000 11-In-1 Mens Grooming Kit QG3352/23, Beard Trimmer Hair Clippers, Moustache, Stubble, Detail Shaving, Nose Hair and Eyebrow Trimmers (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This rechargeable face trimmer has a nice handle, and a number of attachments which lock on sympathetically to their uses to make the most of its shape. as a result, whatever the face-enhancing task you encounter, you will always feel in control and relaxed using any of the fittings. It holds charge well, and comes with a UK plug. The tray/stand pictured in the product photo is a flimsy piece of plastic packaging, and not really a storage solution. There is a vinyl bad into which to stuff everything, but this too feels cheap.

There are 2 standard cutters, one smaller and finer for edging and one slightly wider for shortening and trimming. The latter is small enough to follow face contours, the former much smaller for intricate edging, and mounts backwards (relatively) so it naturally goes edge-on to the face. There are a couple (actually 3) of combs that clip onto the handle, and that click along at 1mm intervals to separate the cutter from your face. The combs are merely held at detents by the tension of the plastic from which they are made. This seems like a vulnerability that might fatigue. When used as a stubble or beard trimmer (yes, there are both, even though they seem to be the same thing at a lightly different angle) the blades cut fairly effectively with only a couple of passes needed.

There is a foil shaver, which is small enough to fill/empty gaps that you might have in your grand facial design, but which is such a feeble cutting device that you will be sawing away for ages before seeing the "polished" look promised in the blurb. Altogether, it would be better to use a wet razor for this task, even if the smallness of the foil is handy for neatness.

There's a nose-hair trimmer attachment, which is about as painful and ineffective as any other nose hair trimmer that i have tried, and some cleaning brushes and combs.

waterproof largely = pointless. using this in the wet just leads to hair sludge in my world.

Surely it's waterproof so you can clean it after trimming?

A good point; I hadn't thought of that!
