Great stubble trimmer

Advantages: price, functionality, apperance
As a guy who suffers from terrible shaving rash, and one who has previously owned a couple of electrical shavers which left a lot to be desired, I decided to go for a stubble look and opted for this brand, mainly because of the price (I paid less than £20 at the time)
Now this is not a clean-shave shaver. It is designed simply to get stubble nice and neat, and there are several 'thickness' options. I always go for the closest trim because my facial hair grow pretty quickly (On a side note, this shaver is quite effective for trimming torso hair too but just make sure the skin is nice and moisturized before and after!)
My overall rating is 5/5 based on:
Functionality: Very light-weight, charge lasts for up to 16 hours. Water resistant so just wash it out under the tap and its good to go for the next time. My only slight gripe is that it is quite hard to trim stubble around the neck line as it is hard to get the angle right. Does not take up too much space in washbag either so great when travelling. Not all the noisy either (I also have a standard pair of clippers and they really rumble away!)
Price: Like I said, under £20 at the time of purchase and, for maintaining a neat stubble look, is far superior t any electric shaver I have ever had
Aesthetics: Looks very classic and sleek. Narrower than standard shavers. I've been using mine usually once every 2-3 days for 7 months and it still looks new
Overall this is a great little piece of grooming kit for creating an easy-to-maintain look that is stylish and on trend
Summary: On style and On Trend
