I hate shaving, it’s just never been something I’ve enjoyed doing. Fortunately for me, my facial hair doesn’t grow very fast. I generally let it go for a week or two before it starts to look bad then begrudgingly shave it. I usually have to trim it with an old pair of hair clippers first so I’m not clogging up the razor. Needless to say this makes a big mess out of the sink.
I’ve tried electric razors in the past, but always felt like they were tearing the whiskers out rather than shaving them off. I’ve always liked the idea of an electric razor, I just hadn’t found on the works for me.
Recently Remington sent me an R8150 electric razor to try out. I LOVE it! I actually enjoy shaving. It uses Advanced Pivot and Flex Technology in which the three heads flex independently and the neck pivots to adjust to the contours of my face. It shaves as close as my razor and it doesn’t feel like the hairs are being ripped from my face. There’s a pop up trimmer so I can hit my sideburns and finish the job.
The Remington R8150 is cordless so I don’t have to mess with the cord, and comes with a charging base that keeps the bathroom counter looking neat and tidy. It carries a 60 minute charge with and LCD readout letting me know exactly how much time I have remaining. It’s perfect because I can throw it in my bag and leave the cord at home. It’s also washable, the top flips open for easy and trouble free cleaning.
In the winter when I like to grow my beard out a little and feel like a New Englander, there’s the Remington Adjustable Beard Groomer. It’s rechargeable and has a 40 minute run time. What I like best is that it’s adjustable, with an all in one comb, all I have to do is rotate the Zoom Wheel and select one of 9 different length setting. It totally eliminates changing combs. It also has a wide blade so I can easily cut straight lines to keep the edges of my beard nice and tidy. It’s no wonder the Remington Adjustable Beard Groomer is Amazon’s top seller.
Another new favorite is the Remington HC-5750 Beard & Haircut Trimmer.
I cut all the boys’ hair and the HC-5750 has become my new go to tool. It cuts quickly and quietly without the terrible buzzing that tends to terrify Henry who’s two. I love how clean it cuts their neckline. It also has a USB charger which I think is really cool, and it holds 40 minutes of charge and has a digital display to let me know how much time I have left. I don’t have to worry about running out of charge mid cut! The titanium coated blades are self sharpening and never need oiling which I love. There’s 14 lock-in length settings so I can give then a great fade that doesn’t look like a home haircut!
Needless to say, thanks to Remington the McClelland men are very well groomed these days!
