I received this today from Amazon and it only cost $34! So I should say that I have tried many different brands and types of shavers and I think for the price, this OneBlade can’t be beat.
The benefits start with the ease of use. One of the disadvantages of electric shavers is that they tend to take more time than traditional razors. However they also tend to be cheaper and easier to maintain since you don’t have to sharpen them. I also like the fact that electric razors are more gentle on my sensitive skin, so when I used to use razors my skin was very irritated.
This is one of the awesome advantages of OneBlade. Even though it was my first time using it it was more gentle on my skin than any other razor I had used. In fact, I didn’t even use any shaving cream and it was incredibly fast and smooth. With the panasonic it normally takes an hour to shave my head/face/neck, but I shaved my face/neck in 10 minutes at most. I tried it on my head it worked very well there too.
So what is the downside? Well the way that shave I don’t see a downside vs a traditional electric shaver or manual razor. It defy combines all of the advantages of an electric shaver with the advantages of a manual razor. The price is estimated at a $32 replacement cartridge after 4 months of twice a week usage. Since I shave once a week, this puts almost 8 months of shaving for $32. This is cheaper than just buying a single pack of some brands of disposable manual razors. Even cheaper than an electric razor and more effective than the panasonic.
Do I regret buying the Panasonic? No. It is still a very useful thing and its reliability is proven. The only downside of this device is that a few people out of thousands found it was unreliable. I hope that is not the case. Even if it is however, it will be worth it to buy and use simply because of how effective it is. Give it a try and I think you will like it.
