Electric Head And Face Shaver?

I use a pair of clippers without a comb attachment to shave me face and head every week and a bit, but I am looking for something closer so I don't need to do it as often.

I am not really fussed about it being a super close hairless cut because I'd just use a razor if I did. I like the lack of effort and money required with an electric cut.

I dunno. Different for everyone I guess... In fact I've never manually shaved as electric does me fine and I've never needed to switch.

Must be something about the hair or your skin, I guess.

Weed killer? Might have to try that.


Elmo, it was ok on the head and sides of the face but on the neck was hell! Cannot go though that again. What are you using anyway? [All those cuts are from the clippers if it wasn't obvious. Just making sure, it's late...]

Philips Philishave Sensotec HQ 8870

It's a shaver my gran got me when I was 18 I think.. so thats 6 years ago! She died... but the shaver lives on! The shaver might not even be made anymore - I'm not sure! I've never changed the blades which might explain why it cuts me once in a while but that's only when the battery's low.

I never realised how much it cost when she gave it me lol.
