Philips OneBlade Face + Body Review*

Now, you know I love a product innovation! And one product I discovered back in 2016 was the Philips OneBlade. Fast forward to 2018 and the clever guys at Philips have made it even better! With the new ability to use the OneBlade to trim body hair… Introducing the Philips OneBlade Face + Body.

How have they made this possible I hear you ask? Well, Philips did a bit of research and spoke to us guys about how we were using our Philips OneBlade and discovered that 70% of us millennial men were using the OneBlade not just on our face, but our bodies too! With this in mind, they have created a selection of new attachments: a body trimmer to trim body hair to any desired length, a sensitive guard to give extra protection to sensitive areas and three stubble body combs (1, 3, 5mm) to trim body hair that grows in any direction.

The product comes with two blades: one blade for the face and one for the body, designed to cut hair not skin and coming into the warmer months (finally!). It is the perfect pre-holiday prep necessity – or like me at the moment, if you’ve been working extra hard in the gym and want to see progress quicker, there’s nothing quite like a bit of manscaping to discover those abs!

It’s one of the most versatile products on the market as it can trim, edge and shave any length of hair, be it your face or body, and you know what – It won’t take up much room in your bathroom or wash bag!

I recently went on a staycation to The Moxy, London and took my Philips OneBlade Face + Body, as I knew I’d have a bit of downtime to get on top of these things! I spent a bit of time getting to know the razors and working out the best ones for my face and body. For my face, I like to keep my neck and cheek hairs clean, so I used the OneBlade solo, and for my stubble, I like around a 3mm guard, so trimmed my stubble down with this. I was really impressed at how the OneBlade gave me very even stubble, something that I’ve struggled with in the past and it just looks so much neater! Then it was onto the body. I like to keep my abs area trimmed short, keep my chest natural and my (you know what) area trimmed short, but not too short so I used the 3mm body comb on this.

Overall, I was impressed with the outcome and I can safely say I was left with no nicks or cuts and didn’t feel my skin was left stripped of oil like I have found with razors in the past. Priced at £49.99 (RRP) I think the OneBlade Face + Body is excellent value, as effectively you’re getting three products combined into one, a shave, a stubble trimmer and a body trimmer. Even better news if you already have a OneBlade, you can upgrade your current kit for £17.99 (RRP) and receive one blade, with the sensitive skin guard, and the 3mm body comb (the one I used the most). Available from philips.co.uk and most retailers. For more info, head over to https://philips.to/2vaWZ8X
