That's just the normal price for it and it's also really not that good.

​No normal price is much more. This is lightening deal.

I have been watching this for a while and was hoping for it to come down from this price really. I like the idea of the different lengths but what makes you say its not that good, just out of interest?

​This is very good because of long lasting battery and display. Much better than other one blades due to bigger lithium battery and display.

It's not really a proper shaver, more a hipster beard shaping thingy

I dunno....reviews suggest you can get a decent close shave with a OneBlade but without the razorburn some suffer with.

In fact the only negative points I can see in reviews are the poor'ish blade life

sorry cold from me... cheaper on boots.com plus you get points

Blades last very long. I get 400 points on boots every month if I spend £20. I use them to bring the price down to £16 for two blades from £19.99.

It only looks like it came down in price because they put the price up beforehand.

As for why i think it's not good: It quite simply doesn't shave close enough to be considered good. Imagine you shaved with some crappy cartridge razor like a Mach 3, now fast forward to having 24 hours worth of stubble growth after that shave. That's about as close as the One Blade gets. It's fine for something to have a quicky shave on a Sunday but as a daily shaver it's not great.

Now for the trimmer with different lengths. If you are going to be using this to trim a beard then you are MUCH better off quit something like a Remington Barba. The One Blade clogs up and you need to clear the comb often whereas a Barba just glides through a beard without clogging, and is cheaper.

I have one and it gives you a reasonable shave in fairness. I describe it as being as close as your face would be at 11am if you shaved at 7am. I've used a blade for 6 months daily (just to keep things tidy) and it still cuts okay, just not quite as well as new.

YMMV; my skin gets raw with some wet razors, so this is pretty good for me.

Quoted life for a £10 blade is 3 months.

If you are looking at reviews on Amazon look closer, most of them are by people who were given it free to review.

​No boots is more expensive. Currently £53.32 after one third reduction they claim.

​Personally for me it is the best close shave electric shaver I owned without seizing hair or pricking skin.

Im the same, not had a proper shave in years.
Use a babylis i-stubble right now.
For me personally I hate clean shaven look, tempted by this.

​So long as you don't expect a double edge quality shave and your face isn't made of barbed wire, I'd imagine you'd be fine.

I agree with your characterisation. Personally I don't need a smooth-as-silk shave, it just needs to be good enough to be neat and tidy. This does the job faster and without irritation. I end up using it probably once every two days, and it's fine for work purposes.

I have this, its good, but the main issue is with such big attachment on for beard trimming it cannot reach the hair directly under your nose - and no I do not have a big nose :-)

Very poor alternative to normal shaving, sent mine back. OK for beard management though.
