It was actually intended to be a Christmas gift yet to be honest I had little difficulty convincing my spouse that I should receive this item early. It's an electric shaver a dry/wet one which means I can use it in the shower. I did the research and selected this model for a few reasons, the shape of the handle lead me to believe it would be simple to hold and maneuver requiring little dexterity and it came in my favorite color to boot .
The only thing I wasn't looking forward to is the period of adaptation which is normally required when going from blades to an electric shaver. If you have never tried it the transition can be a difficult, there is even a page in the packaging with one message printed in bold. "Don't Give up."
I was very surprised during my first experience, although I had shaved with an electric shaver many years ago I was expecting that difficult period of adaptation . However, someone must have looked down on me and thought I deserved a break "no kidding" the first shave went extremely well without a single hick up.
I'm quite pleased with the results, pleased I will longer be contributing blood and slicing my face. As mentioned I don't believe those blades were ever intended for side to side motion!
Now I have the difficult task of trying to find another Christmas gift my spouse can wrap for me. This shouldn't be difficult as I can always find something if I try hard enough LOL.
