Philips OneBlade Review

Philips has a great line of rotary shavers, but they also offer a foil-style electric trimmer and shaver to cover every aspect of the market. The Philips OneBlade Hybrid Electric Trimmer and Shaver QP2520/70 is an all-in-one trimmer and shaver so men won’t have to fill up the bathroom counter with gadgets. It comes in an elongated design, made with a black and lime green plastic handle. It’s electric with an on button located on the front middle of the shaver.

The shaver looks a lot like a traditional safety blade. It can be used for daily shaving, or to trim, edge, and shape around any beard style. The blade is dual sided so it can used it in either direction. And since it’s smaller, it’s a better option than the rotary Philips shaver. Men will be able to do their precise edging better with the OneBlade and be able to line it up better than before.

The head of the Philips OneBlade has a fast moving cutter that will be effective for both stubble or longer hair. The cutter makes movements at 200 times per second. It will also provide a smooth and pleasant shaving experience, never nicking or cutting the skin, or leaving it red afterwards.

It has a dual protection system so that it will give a more efficient and comfortable shave, no matter if there is stubble or longer hairs on the face. This shaver is also suitable for sensitive skin. There is a special glide coating on the Philips OneBlade. This enables it to smoothly glide over the skin. Built within the OneBlade is a metal foil that is covered in a crisscrossed metal section full of slots. These are what captures the hair so they can be snipped off. There are coated polymer tips that enable the hair to be instantly cut off. The shaver can be moved in any direction, so men needn’t worry if they’re shaving wrong.

But actual results may vary from man to man.
