      Middle of the range price for a good shaver

      I have used many shavers over the years but this one rates quite favourably. Like most shavers it recommends that you charge it for at least 8 hours. I prefer a dry shave and have to shave from the armpits down, way down,this takes a while. By now you will realise I am no spring chicken. I am actually a middle aged mum who likes to look good. I find this shaver easy to use. It comes with 2 trimmers and an ultra foil for legs, armpits and bikini line. I like a close shave and this does the business. No cuts, nicks or anything sinister. I have tried a wet shave which I managed with no problems but I must admit I find the dry shave much easier, but that it just down to personal choice. Shaver comes with a little brush for cleaning which I recommend you use after every shave. For the price this is a very good shaver.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I warned you that I would be writing about my Christmas presents didn't I? Well this one is a little belter! I had an electric Ladyshave made by Philips about 20 years ago and it still works, but only just. I find that as I am trying to shave under my arms the plug keeps working loose from the socket and the shaver keeps cutting out. So when mom and dad asked what they could buy me for Christmas I told them that a new Ladyshave would make life easier for me. They told me to choose one myself so that I got exactly what I wanted. When I came to look at the choice I was surprised by how many different makes and models there were. I could have wet, dry, rechargeable, battery powered, electric, expensive or reasonable. I chose the Philips HP 6305, which is rechargeable, and works in either wet or dry conditions, a cost of £33, although I got it from my catalogue on special offer so mom and dad only had to pay £30.52 and I still get the commission too! Do I like it? Yes indeed! Has it improved in 20 years? You bet! The new Ladyshave is about 5 inches long by one and a half inches wide and about half an inch deep. It is slightly 'S' shaped so it feels really comfortable to hold whether using it in the bedroom or in the bath. It is a pale peach colour with a slightly darker peach trim so it's very pretty too. It has a switch on the front, which is pushed upwards to turn the Ladyshave on and is easily operated one handed. This means that now I can stand in front of a mirror to shave under my arms, instead of having to sit on the floor near to the socket and try and peer round at my armpits to see if I had shaved them properly. Don't try and imagine the scene it's not a pretty sight believe me! The new Ladyshave comes complete with a charging unit in the darker shade of peach, measuring about two inches wide by two and a half inches long and about an inch and a half high,
      which in turn has the standard two-pin plug that all electric razors have so you'll need an adaptor too. When I saw that the instruction book was 69 pages long I did wonder how complicated an electric razor could get but then I realised that the instructions were written in no less than thirteen different languages! Before I used the razor for the first time I had to charge it for at least eight hours to make sure that it was fully charged. This is very easy to do - I just had to plug in the charging unit and attach the razor by pushing the two metal pegs inside the base of the razor into the holes in the front of the charging unit. I had to be sure of two things at this point - that the razor was switched off and that my hands were dry. There's a light on the front of the unit, which illuminates to show that the razor is charging correctly. Once fully charged the razor will shave for 20 minutes before needing to be recharged. It is suggested that the razor be stored on the charger at all times when not in use so that it is constantly being recharged but I intend to just recharge mine as and when it needs it. I have enough things lying around the place without having this constantly plugged in! To use the Ladyshave all I have to do is switch it on and move it across the skin against the growth of the hair and I get a lovely smooth finish. It is OK to use this appliance on the underarms, the legs and the bikini line. I would rather use the epilator on my legs though, as the regrowth isn't at all stubbly, as it tends to be with any razor. To clean the Ladyshave I just have to make sure it's switched off and remove the shaving head by just holding it between my finger and thumb and pulling gently. I then blow the hairs out of the unit and use the brush provided to brush any remaining hairs out of the unit and also to brush the hairs out of the top of the Ladyshave before replacing t
      he head. The head is then replaced by pushing it gently back into place and there is a protective cover, which fits over the top of the shaving head by clicking it into place when the razor is not in use. The only maintenance that the Ladyshave should need is to be lubricated with a drop of sewing machine oil twice a year. Mind you I was advised to do that with my old one and I never remembered to do it and that lasted me 20 years so it can't be that important! Philips guarantees the product worldwide for a period of twelve months against defective workmanship or parts, and Philips can be contacted on their web site at www.homeandbody.philips.com All in all I am very impressed with my new toy, it really does make shaving a lot easier! By the way I know that this isn't the exact same model as the category title (it's HP6305 not HP2750) but have you tried getting a new ctaegory set up these days?

        I think that I'm lucky as my body hair is fair and fine in texture. This means that, as far as my legs go, I only have to shave them on special occassions. On normal days, especially when I have a suntan, my legs look great without any special attention - well I think so at least and that is what really matters. When I do have to shave I use a Philips Ladyshave. My underarms and bikini line are different and I feel that these must have regular attention, again with my Ladyshave. I know that some people are quite 'into' hair. I had a boyfriend, for example, who persuaded me not to shave my underarms or pubic hair. It was a bit of a novelty for a while but eventually I got fed up and started to 'ladyshave' again. He left shortly afterwards. Can't please them all, so please yourself, that's now my motto. Actually I would prefer to get rid of all of my bodyhair but I don't have the time to devote to this on a regular basis. So again this is something for those special occassions I mentioned earlier. My 'hair control' is no problem with my Ladyshave. It works efficiently and has no adverse effect on my skin, which is quite soft and smooth after use. I always make extra sure by massaging in a good body moisturiser afterwards. My Ladyshave is a nice light green in colour and comes with it's own storage cassette. The model I have has two separate heads. One for legs and the other for underarms and the bikini line. Both work well and deal with short and longer hair quite easily. It means I can wear the briefest string with confidence. I know that there will be no hair sprouting for all to see. Don't you just hate it when you see that? My shaver is rechargeable so it is convenient to take with me on weekends away or for holidays. It takes about twelve hours to recharge fully each time and this allows about half an hours cordless action, which is more than eno
        ugh for me. Ladyshave can be used wet or dry. I use it dry, though I have used it wet after a shower. I don't really see the advantage in this but by having the choice it will suit most of us. Cleaning is easy, as everything is waterproof. I just run the heads under the warm tap to flush away any bits of hair. It's then ready to put away until the next time. I'd recommend the Ladyshave, it'll do your hair to whatever style you prefer. I have a friend who likes her pubic hair to be heart shaped! I think she must be in love or something, or perhaps she's just waiting for Cupid's arrow. If you want smooth and soft, hair free legs and other parts give the ladyshave a try.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Many years ago, I owned a Remington Ladyshave. It was about the time that shavers for ladies were introduced, and it was absolute rubbish. It rotted in my drawer and was eventually thrown out. I continued to shave using a wet razor, or occasionally I used some immac. Shaving has always been a chore to me, but I hate hairy legs and armpits, so it was put up or shut up. As it was my birthday recently, and not being able to think of what I really wanted when asked, I decided to ask for an electric razor. What the heck, I thought, technology must have improved over the years. I was given the Philips wet and dry rechargeable Ladyshave. I loved the colour, a nice lilac with a deep pink button. The mains cord is great too. It has a straight cord, which made it more easier to reach the plug socket, unlike the spiral leads which you have to stretch to reach. It is light to hold, easy to grip, comes with cleaning brush, and has a 25 minute cordless use for an 8 hour charge. It also has 2 trimmers and an ultrafine foil for use on legs, armpits and bikini line. Can be used for wet shaving too but that defeats the object for me. So how did it compare to a wet shave? Firstly, it has the convenience of being able to shave me without me having to jump in the shower, which is great if I am in a hurry. I think this has to be the most important factor for me. Secondly, it does give a smooth feeling to the legs and underarms. I saw no stubble at all, although it was soon visible after a couple of days. And for the ladies that have the 'keep off the grass' sign, yes, it does well on longer hair, but regular cleaning of the blades during use is essential. The final result in this area is the same as legs and armpits. This would make an excellent Christmas present for the Ladies and teenage girls. I have already raced out and brought 3 for my daughter, and 2 future daug
          hter-in-laws. They cost £28.75 (£5 off each one just before Christmas). There is a cheaper model available too, which is just battery operated for £18.50. One last thing, it has a two-pronged plug so you also need an adapter (£2.95 in Tesco's). (Prices quoted are from Argos)

            I have had my Phillips for several years now in fact it is my second one I was bought an up dated one a while ago as a gift. Lets be honest ldies it is easier and quicker, in most cases less painful. I must admit I have never had my legs waxed but a friend of mine has and told me she experienced some real pain and it put me off. Maybe she is a sissy I don't know but I think I will stick to what I am used to and know works good enough for me. As advertised you can use it wet or dry I always use mine dry and use a nice cream to soften the skin afterwards. On my shaver you have two different settings one for the legs and one for underneath the arms. You can also use it for the bikini line girls. One thing I will say ladies is don't forget to shave the bikini line before you go swimming. I know you could always pack the shaver but you won't half get some strange looks when you come out of the cubicle, (Know what I mean). I am sure you all sort these things out before you go for a swim though don't you. I must say this is a definate one to buy and I would get another one tomorrow if anything happened to mine (Touch wood). Compact easy to use and very good I certainly wouldn't go back to a razor now!! I am unsure of the price as it was a gift so it is only an estimate as I bought the phillips for a gift last year but it wasn't rechargable.

            I have had this electric razor for several years now. The ladyshave comes with a little brush to assist cleaning, and has a removeable head for the same purpose, which is useful. I bought this hoping for a safer and more effective alternative to wet shaving, however I have found that it is not as effective, takes at least as long, and irritates my skin far more than a wet shave. It is useful on those occasions where I want to shave but don’t want to have to have a shower to do it, such as going swimming at short notice, but I wouldn’t recommend it for regular use.

            A close shave or what? Preferring to use disposibles for a really close shave, I was bought a ladyshave after complaining of too many nicks and cuts. Dubious about the close shave promise, I tried it and was pleasantly suprised. This product gives a really, really close shave with no abrasions. Has two setting, one for underarm and bikini line with the other for legs. No stinging shaving rash afterwards but did tend to leave dry skin behind afterwards. Equally good either dry or wet shaving. Easy to clean. Cannot recharge whilst using.

            I know, most of the British people think that all German ladies have hairy armpits... but that's not true. Not all. But quite a lot. I never ever thought about it until I moved to England some 4 years ago. As you ladies know, we don't just watch men...no, we observe women as well. That's what I did - and I couldn't see any hairy armpits! The first summer in England I didn't mind; it was raining anyway. The second summer I didn't mind, because I was travelling a lot (Germany, Belgrade - hairy armpits everywhere!). It started all in my third summer. I hardly couldn't think of anything else. Should I shave or should I expose my hairy armpits? Well, decisions, decisions. I always shaved my legs and sometimes other parts of my body too, but I always LIKED my hairy armpits. But everybody else was bald! I was getting self-conscious and started to investigate. First I asked hubby. He liked hair. Then I asked some colleagues. The older men liked it or didn't care (some even didn't know if their wifes are hairy or not! sad..), the younger ones liked it bald. I even phoned an ex-lover to ask about his opinion. All in all I found out, that the older men never thought about it or even liked it hairy, but the younger ones prefered bald. I asked the ladies. My french friend was so obsessed with baldness, she even waxed her facial hair (not that she had any...). The British friends shaved. One German friend, living in England, recently started shaving because one lover complained about her German pits. As a reason I was told it's more hygienic and aesthetical. Hmmm, I never met a hairy stinker.... My solution was to wear clothes with long arms - until last summer. I bought a really nice orange dress and was looking forward to wear it the first time. The sun came out - and I realised, I didn't plan my purchase. No sleeves! I was dying to wear the dress, but I was working in a publishing house with plenty of young Br
            itish people. So I took my ladyshave and off it came. Torture! The whole day it was itching and burning. I felt terrible. It was even worse the next day, and the next, and the next... Itchy little spots, my deo didn't work anymore, I went to the bath-room every second hour to cool my poor tortured pits... Back came my long sleeves and back came my hairy armpits. It's summer again and I'm working from home now - thank God! My dog don't mind and my hubby likes it hairy. If I'm going out, I wear sleeves....
