      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Just a 5 out of 5 product.

      The babyliss hair trimmer is a great piece of equipment to have if you cut or trim your hair on a regular basis.

      When first using the babyliss hair trimmer I found it perfect for cutting my hair and it gave me the professional look all over. The different length levels that came with the hair trimmers was great and gave me a pair of hair cutting scissors and comb.

      I haven't used any hair levels apart form level 1 as I have shaved sides but this also can give your hair the equal level look. The hair trimmers are so easy to use even on charge.

      The battery life I have found to be great I have hardly charged it but have used it a lot so it has been very good buy. The battery life is very long I couldn't put a time on it as I wouldn't know if I was being fair or not.

      The travel case that comes with the hair trimmers in the box is very useful as you don't have to keep the box and you can store everything all the level hair tops, charger, scissors, comb and hair trimmers. The carry case is a zip up and zip open case which is so easy and very practical.

      Overall this is a great product fully recommend this for everyone. Such a great battery and product.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great little grooming system that pays for itself over & over and is a comfortable price.

      I'm going to review the BaByliss POWERLIGHT PRO home grooming kit.
      It is mains OR cordless operated and comes with attachments facilitating grades 1 to 8 cut.
      The kit also includes a pouch for storing the item,a tube of oil,a comb,scissors,small cleaning brush and blade guard to protect the blades in storage .

      First charging........they advise an overnight charge for this ,but I have found that after the first few times a couple of hours is totally sufficient for a decent hair cut (or two if it is a basic short 'scalping') .

      Next the attachments. They simply clip on over the blades, and while they tend to be stiff to fit on,that suits me fine because it means they are snugly in place and won't shift like the attachments did on our old clippers. I was wary of the attachments because ,like I said,our last ones shifted & were a softer plastic causing the hair to be pulled & much grumbling from the person it was inflicted on. But these ones are firm & secure which means no unnecessary snagging, pulling of hair or manly screams.

      Cleaning is easy with the little brush & the makers advise you oil the blades before each use. I drop two little drops of oil onto the blades and leave the unit propped up for a few minutes before using to allow the oil to penetrate thoroughly.

      The unit is lightweight,but solid....not flimsy at all,and has a nice shape for gripping comfortably. It measures 17cms long x 6 cms wide & has a lever on the side for adjusting the cut.

      The lead for using from electric/charging is a comfortable 7ft in length. My one gripe is that the lead disconnects from the unit far too easily. Normally this won't matter if you have charged the unit & are using it cordless,but on one occasion when I was doing three haircuts I needed to put the lead back in to finish the third cut & it kept slipping out as I moved around the client's head. So it was necessary to get him to hold the lead to prevent it constantly wobbling out of the unit. But that is a small gripe really & easily overcome.

      These cost us £19.99 in Tesco .They ARE on sale at a higher price,so I'd advise looking around various outlets for the £20 price.

      Would I recommend them ? Yes,definitely. A big improvement on our last ones (Braun) and perfectly fine for simple uncomplicated grooming. We've been using them for 4 months now & they have paid for themselves easily in that time.

        MY EXPERIENCE
        ______________
        Well firstly you could say it a bit odd, a woman writing about a mans product, but i actually cut his hair so i know how they work!! Ok, so I bought my other half these for xmas as his old ones were very worn out. I bought these ones because he likes to change his beard and cuts all the time, so with the variety of options with this kit i thought they would be perfect. So firsty, charging them- they come with a cable charger and advise for first time use you charge for 24 hrs! Since then the battery life has been about 40 mins, and then they die again. We tend put them on charge overnight but there is a charge indicator as well. Using them is easy without the cord and they are very lightweight making it simple to use yourself and not get arm ache (so the other half says!) Chaning the grade guides is relativly easy, they just slide on the end. Im fine at getting them off, but i find they can be a bit stiff to put on. After use, they are easy to clean and come with a brush and oil to keep them good, but be careful as they are quiet sharp.Now there are a lot of bits and bobs that come with this product, but you can put them all in the bag provided when not using them.

        MY OPINION
        ___________
        Iv found these clippers easy to use as they are so lightweight and so sharp. They cut through hair brilliantly, which makes cutting it very quick. They have a lot of variety, so you can change looks and try something new. The fact they are cordless makes them great for travel and my otherhalf even takes them to work sometimes for his beard if he wakes up late. (Yes I know he is rather silly!)
        I did find the numbers on the grade cutters to be a bit small and difficult to see so just be aware of that if you have bad eyes..... wouldnt want you wanting a 7 and ending up with a 1!!! They do look a bit pasticy and cheap as well, and my other half says the grade combs feel a bit funny on his head, not uncomfortable but funny, so maybe kids wouldnt like them so much.

        Overall Very cheap and worth the money as easy to use, and clean and do what they say. My Boyfriend loves them, so if your due a new pair, I think these re a great buy.

        Thanks for reading and rating.
