Advantages: it didnt hurt me and glided nicely
Disadvantages: left my legs stubbly not smooooth
I bought this product at the weekend and tried it out tonight in the shower. It cost me about £30 from Boots. It claims to be tough on hairs soft on skin. I thought it might make me look like the gorgeous blonde on the box but hey, its not that good.
You can use this lady shaver in the shower or on dry skin. It is pretty compact and looks attractive. It has a pivoting head an aloe vera strip to make shaving smoother and two gold shaving foils which glide on your skin. It claims to have "floating heads" although I am at a bit of a loss to say what this achieves but I presume this is another feature to improve glide.
The product comes with a little travel bag which is just a small white soap bag, although it is marketed as a luxury pouch which sounds a bit dramatic. This soap bag would come in handy if you are taking your shaver on your hols with you.
It has rechargeable batteries included and a charger which plugs into the bottom of the shaver and then plugs into the wall. Initially the charging light eluded me - I thought it would be on the product but it appears to be on the plug and glows green when your product is charging.
The manufacturing recommends you fully charge it for 10 hours prior to use. However, I charged it for about 10mins and then wanted to play with it. It had enough charge in it to do my legs under arms and bikini line. I plugged it back in to charge after use.
The product makes a rather noisy buzz which made me start when I switched it on.
This is the first lady shaver I have ever bought. I have to admit I was a bit scared of using it for some strange reason I thought it would hurt. It doesn't.
The good thing about the product is that you can use it in the shower or for a quick shave on dry skin if you are in a rush.
The shaver glided well on my skin with the help of a little soap. I enjoyed using the product but with thicker longer hair it can get clogged up and if your hair gets trapped in it that can smart a little therefore, if you are doing your bikini line you may want to do a little trim before using the shaver.
Using this product I was able to do all my bits and bobs quicker than I would have done using a razor. It glided well over the bikini line, arm pits and legs. It was safe and comfortable with no nicks or bumps
I would have preferred it if the product had a rubber grip on the handle as in the shower I found that my hands got slippy and it was not so easy to hold the smooth plastic handle on this shaver.
Its easy to clean you just pop of the head and run it under the tap. No problems there.
Unfortunately, the end result was a little disappointing as I found that my legs felt stubbly rather than silky smooth after use. This may be because I have thick course hair.
So overall, a cheap convenient tool to use but maybe would perform better on lady's with finer hair like the lovely blonde lady on the box.
Summary: may suit finer haired ladies
