Disadvantages: charged by mains only
I've bought two of these little grooming kits from Babyliss over the years. They are something affordable with detachable multi-heads for various purposes of hair removal. My facial hair tends to be of the thick wirey variety. Something like Desperate Dan from the Dandy would have.
It's only chargeable, so no double A batteries. If you don't take the plug with you as well as the trimmer when travelling then no power. I tend to leave it over night to charge then un-plug it, use it for a couple of days, then place it back on charge. It comes with several different heads for different shaves. The regular trimmer for average everyday use comes with several mini plastic attachments/cutting guides which give you a shaving closeness of from a couple of centimetres to just a few millimetres. These clip on to the top ready for use. The blades cut rapidly from side to side creating the cutting motion. You will want to keep your trimmer well charged is possible to avoid it grinding to a halt and snagging your facial hair when shaving.
The other head attachments can be used to create different results.There is a mini-trimmer head only a centimetre in length which targets less easy to reach areas. In addition to this there is a nose trimmer head which is quite effective.
There is a beard comb that comes with the kit, a cleaning brush and some lubricating oil to keep the head in good condition. The docking base is rather heaving with the items you receive in the kit and seems slightly overloaded. The charging lead can be threaded up through the base so you can constantly place your trimmer on charge when not in use.
As a kit on the whole I would recommend this. You've got everything you need to keep in trim inside the box. When it comes to quality it's not the best, but worth the cost of payment for it.
Summary: Keep yourself in good nick with this.
