Argos Battery Lady Shaver
Disadvantages: not as good as more expensive razors
I bought the Argos Value Range Battery Lady Shaver as a cheap replacement razor to take with me when I am travelling, I didn't want to spend too much on a razor as I usually end up leaving things behind when I am staying in hotels.
The first thing that attracted to me to this product was the price, it costs a very reasonable £5 in Argos at the moment to purchase, which is a great price for an electric shaver in my opinion.
The Argos Value Range Battery Lady Shaver has a stainless steel cutter, there is only one blade on this razor and it doesn't get a very close shave when using it on more awkward areas, for example under the arms is quite tricky to get a close shave because of the curve in your under arm areas. The blade isn't very flexible which can be annoying, but eventually, with a little perserverance the job gets done.
You can take the head off this shaver, which makes it much easier to clean. There is a little cleaning brush that comes in the box with this shaver, it is rather easy, you simply brush the excess hairs away from the shaver head with the little brush.
This shaver is batter y powered, and batteries are sold separately. It uses 2xAAA batteries, which will need to be replaced regularly. However I have found that I only need to replace the batteries every few weeks, though if I was going on a 2 week holiday I would definitely bring some spare batteries with me in case it ran out.
This razor is quite nicely decorated for the price, it is purple and white, it has a really plain design and is quite big and bulky compared to other electronic shavers I have used. However for £5, I didn't really expect it to be really attractive.
I wouldn't say that this is the best electronic shaver I have ever used, but it is a good little back-up razor that I like to take with me on holidays or when I am travelling, as if it was left behind it would be easily replaced.
The quality of the shave that you get from this razor is average, it wouldn't be the closest or easiest shaver to use on the market, but again, it is cheap and cheerful, and I think that it fits its purpose as a temporary use shaver, however I do prefer my own shaver at home which is a Phillips electric shaver and costed me closer for £50.
I think that this is a good little back up shaver, it isn't the best quality, but it gets the job done eventually and is priced really well at £5. Overall I would give this razor 3 out of 5 stars.
Summary: a good travel razor
