overpriced, gimmicky and stopped working after 18 months
11 April 2018
Had this shaver for 18 months now, used weekly and it has stopped working now within the last 2 weeks. I now feel qualified enough to leave an informed review.
Firstly, this is a rather expensive shaver - I think around £80 when I bought it. Straight out of the box, it didn't shave much better than the £20 Babyliss I'd been previously using. Battery life was good and not having to change the the shaver heads to change shave closeness was marginally more handy than having to swap out shaving heads - but the £60 jump in price made no noticeable in shave quality or quickness of shave.
Overall most of the money in terms of build quality in this shaver went into the remaining battery life countdown timer, shave closeness display and mechanized closeness adjustment - NOT improving the quality of the shave. A gimmicky product that doesn't achieve its primary task well enough to justify its price tag!
