I might buy it tomorrow as a gift, but for myself I would have loved a good trimmer as I need a new one. A shaver though I despise as I love my beard, just need a good electric trimmer for shaping, etc.
@Vitanima We think you meant to say “scaping” sounds very similar to “shaping.” Well actually we can only determine such is inaccurate once knowing the placement of such beard touching which lips. Either way hold the pics including gifs; no need.
I reckon I’ll give it a try, keep most of my face hair shaved for work, and an electric might be nice. Irrelevantly, I still remember my dad using one of those tri wheel looking things, this looks much more sophisticated
No brand of shaver is indestructible. Heads wear out. Foil breaks. The center cutter bar gets nicked and dulled. Who’s going to have spares for a brand that is essentially unknown, when they’re needed? HSN? It is to laugh.
@xobzoo I just watched it, too (based on your comment), and you are not wrong! There is no possible way that dude with the beard in the studio has it turned on, right? If so, this is the crappiest shaver I have ever seen so proudly demonstrated.
I mean he literally goes over the same part of his beard like 6+ times and there’s not a single difference between when he started and when he finished. I actually laughed out loud.
Maybe the buzz was too loud to use on air, but they totally should have disclosed that he was just modeling it because NO ONE would buy it based on the job it was doing on him! Too funny!
@brianbrianbrian@xobzoo yes!! I laughed at that too! Like…they’re right there in front of you! And even if the red one had some unusual name, the grey is grey and the black is black…and I don’t think it would have been too difficult to wing it, lol!
The QVC studio is about 1/2 mile from my house. The on air talent has become fairly amateur in recent years…and you can tell.
This appears to be a direct clone of an older Remington I used for years without changing the blades. Only replaced it when the battery wouldn’t hold a charge anymore.
I doubt this would be as nice, but for $20, who cares? I paid that much for the disposable non-electric I’ve been using for 6 months without changing the blades.
Shaving cream and replacement razor blades are a sham, by the way. How’s your razor gonna get dull from cutting hair? That doesn’t even make sense.
@whomeyesu And microparticles of grit from dust, and interaction with the irregularities of the foil as it flexes over the curvature of the face, and…
Yeah, they do wear out. Not fast, usually, but it happens sooner or later. With these, I expect that they probably start out less sharp than my oldest Remington is now, on its third set of foils and heads.
@MrNews Same with my Panasonic, though the foil and blade replacement set cost me closer to $30. I bought one of these not to replace what I already own, but to have at my camp so as to have one less thing to pack for a weekend, when precise facial hair removal is not on the priority list…
