Big Headed shaver, 4 blade craziness but works surprisingly well
4 weeks ago
Summary: I hate shaving, I always have and probably always will.... I'm a bloke that after shaving immedietly has a five o'clock shadow....I must have translucent skin and stubble that defies logic, I don't really know other than I cannot shave and look like I've just shaved but hey-ho. So, with my bionic stubble and sensitive skin I've found Gillette's 4 blade razors the only thing that works for me along with a 5 year old Panasonic razor to do under my nose and around my chin...
Summary: Early days (around 10 shaves) but very happy so far. A much closer shave than my previous Philips rotary, and despite the size of the heads, seems to get into all the tight spots without difficulty. Very easy to keep clean, and the protective cover fits nicely and securely (unlike most others I've had).
Excerpt: Really very happy with my shaver, the lady who served me was most pleasant and was so very helpful . I wish all staff could be so polite.. I always shop at Argos as its the best place for everything and the after sales team is great in store. I don't get deliveries as i prefer to collect from store. Every time I go Wolverhampton store in town the service is 5â˜†â˜†â˜†â˜†â˜†.
Excerpt: Although this is a Christmas present I asked my husband to try it to make sure it worked and he said it is the best shave he has had for quite a while and he had 4 days growth, he is definitely looking forward to using this shaver on a regular basis.
Excerpt: Read reviews seemed good but was totaly disappointed. The shaver seemed blunt and would not shave at all, i have had several makes over the years but have never had one as poor as this. Took it back to Argos who gave me an instant fefund.
Summary: Just rubbish, I threw it in the bin. After persevering for 3 months still could not get a decent shave, so went out and bought a rotary Phillips - at least I get a half decent shave again - and the Phillips was half the price.
I bought this because of all the great reviews it has

Summary: I bought this because of all the great reviews it has. Sadly for me it has been a disaster. It takes ages to get even a passable shave and even then it mises a lot of the hair. I really do think that what hair type you have makes or breaks your experience with this shaver. My hair is fairly soft and it seems to bend under the blade rather than get cut through it.
Summary: Best shave for years, have only used it with gel so far but it delivers a really close shave and less aggro than with a blade. I prepare using Superdrug face scrub and would recommend that, too. Holds charge well, lasting three weeks from the initial charge. Cleans up nicely and all-in-all a superb product.
Summary: Gives the closest shave yet that I have experienced from an electric shaver: Pretty much feels like I've had a wet shave. The head looks a bit big and cumbersome but it's actually great to use.
I bought this shaver 18 months ago as it looked ...

Summary: I bought this shaver 18 months ago as it looked a well made and strong model. It had been working well until I had to replace the foil and cutter after 1 year, when I tried to order a replacement they were not available for 6 weeks, so had to go back to the razor shave until the replacement eventually arrived. Two months ago the trimmer fell apart, last week the on/off button wouldn't work but managed to suddenly switch on at 2am waking my wife and me!!
