The blade area does get a little hot though after using it for about 5 minutes and there is very minor dryness and irritation after using it but not much more than a wet razor shave and nothing that would prevent me from using it again.
For sensitive skin users like myself I would recommend this shaver if you are looking for a convenient shaver without having to wet your face and lather up. But I would recommend using an after shave balm to help cool and moisturise the skin afterwards.
I've been wanting an electric shaver for years, and thought the price on this one was great. If I'd bought it for the RRP I'd be in tears right now. It's just taken me over 20 minutes of scraping with this weak machine to get what was once a 30 second job with my hair clippers.
I started with a lathered foam, in the shower - I was essentially just rolling the metal foil over my face with no effect at all. I then washed out all the foam and started again. It was better but, even after washing the head out every 5 seconds, I was making very slow progress. Finished the shower looking like a drunk Edward Scissorhands had just attacked my face, only to spend another 5 mins painfully finishing off, once dry.
I'm now red raw, the best part of £60 worse off, and still finding unshaved areas on my face.
Very disappointed. Such a shame as I was really looking forward to these.
Side note (nothing to do with the item and has in no way affected the review): the delivery driver left my parcel propped up against my door on a busy street! If it wasn't for a good neighbour, I'd have never received my shaver... on second thoughts, maybe he/she was trying to do me a favour!
My only comment is the price of replacement foils is extortionate (but this is the pricing model).
I have tried it dry, I have tried it wet with shaving gel. After 10 minutes of shaving with the S3 I can drag a conventional wet razor across my face and feel it cutting the stubble that the S3 has left behind.
I see amongst the reviews that some people are delighted with it, and that’s great. But we are all different and if like me you’ve struggled with electric shavers in the past then the S3 is unlikely to give you the shave you crave.
It seems to me that the basic argument remains. With the foil between the blade and your skin it is never going to shave as well as a razor. I've given it 2 stars as it may have a place in the overnight travel bag for convenience but I can get much better results with a razor and in less time. I still don’t have the money, but even if I did, I wouldn’t be buying the company.
