To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I don't normally bother to write reviews but felt like I should with this. I was a bit concerned with some of the other makes of these that the replacement blades seem to be as expensive as the actual thing. Not with this - it just takes two regular double edge old style blades, which are cheap as chips. I was also worried after reading reviews by people saying they cut themselves, however I think you'd have to be pretty ham fisted to cut yourself with it. I just used it dry so I could feel exactly what was going on, you have to be pretty slow and cautious (it has razor blades in it ffs) but it works really well. My back is now as smooth as a porn stars ball bag. I had a shower afterwards and had no razor burn.
I put the razor blades in and thought to myself this is going to cut me to shreds. So I started off gingerly and well, not a scratch. Did take me a while to complete my first shave, getting used to best ways to hold the shaver to reach all the areas, but in time no doubt will get more proficient. A good clean shave on “M” setting, did a dry shave. With the pack of razor blades I purchased separately, and for the fact that you can turn the blades round when one side gets blunt, this shaver will work out a lot cheaper than other brands and electronic ones. Well impressed.
In the past I have used cream based products to help remove my back hair. So after much research online I opted for this product based on other user reviews. The product arrived on time and was well packaged and also had an unexpected bonus of a pack of 5 blades. As I had never used a back shaver before I took the shaver out of the packing and tried quite a few stroked without any blades in it just to try to get used to the feel and figure out what way of holding it would suit me. Once happy I put in two blades which was a very straight forward process. The blades have numbers printed on them 1-4 which will be useful when I come to swap them round. I decided to use the shaver on my back dry and initially tried a couple of long sweeping motions which did not really do anything. After a bit of experimentation, for me, it worked better with small blades motions repeated over the area of my back that I was shaving. The main thing was to take your time let the blades do the work and if needed apply gentle pressure. I would recommend you allow at least 20 to 30 minutes on your first use purely to allow you to get used to the product and the different angles you may need to hold it at i.e. under and over arm etc. You may also have to bend your back to offer a flat surface to the blades. I had access to a large mirror which I found useful to view my progress, but it can be a bit disorientating if you try to use a mirror to actually shave (your movements are reversed). What I did find useful was to actually listen to the blades and you can hear when the are cutting and they make no real noise once the area of your back has been shaved. All in all I was impressed with the shaver and hopefully the time spent will decrease as I get more confident. I should also say that as a complete novice I had no "nicks" at all so was really impressed and pleased with that.
When I stumbled upon these I thought surely they cannot be that good! However I took a punt and ordered some extra razor blades. When it arrived I thought it’s suitably well made and easy to assemble. It takes a bit of getting used too however it does an amazing job and I have even used it on my chest twice (carefully of course). I wish I had come across these years ago. Essential item for grooming your body.
I had an earlier version of this shaver that took 3 blades but it got broken when I moved. So I ordered this. It's smaller than the one i had and only needs 2 blades, which makes it easier to use. It reaches all the places on my back and does a great job. Just be careful when using it for the first time with new blades as it's extremely sharp and I scratched myself in a couple of places.
Only used it once but I was pleasantly surprised how easy and well it works. Was going to buy one of the more expensive options out there but thought I'd give this one a go. Glad I did.
Fairy easy to set up. Ignored the advice to steam your back for ten minutes and went straight at it with dry skin on the medium setting. Worked perfectly and never felt like I was going to cut myself really. Only took 5 minutes to do the whole back. Very happy.
