They can but be gentle. Let the weight of the head of the razor do the work and don’t dig or apply pressure yourself to the razor like you might have done with the plastic cartridge razor previously. You’ll cut yourself badly otherwise. This is a decent starting place for a razor that is mild.
That’s where I found the idea to buy BIC blades. They definitely line up with the review of them. They last me a good number of shaves. Longer than any other blade I’ve tried. I plan to use up my supplies of Astra before getting a trial pack off eBay or something and then decide the best blades for me.
Yes that's a good point. Depends on how you pair it though - it's pretty forgiving with my muhle 89 but I would be hesitant to use it with something more aggressive like a 96.
I never got the knack of my chin with a straight razor. Just can't get used to the curve for some reason, always have to finish off with the DE if I want it nice and close.
Or I can just hold the scales straight to the blade. (y) I know it's not quite the same, but it should give me an idea if it might be preferable. (embarrassed)
Get the kamisori shavette style ones which take SE blades I got this one which is on Amazon UK and inexpensive tbh https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B077K2Y1TY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_P3M4HJYMAJDXWH6CPZTN
Never got to use it cos i use gel, but it wasn't synthetic (mislaid it now)
Honing and sharpening does look like another level of skills to learn. I was considering looking out for some cheap charity shop razors to practice on. To attempt to restore, and potentially ruin. I'm a massive fan of all things Japanese. At the moment I'm trying to use my shavette in the traditional style, but with the sideburn issue, I have considered trying Japanese style. Thanks for the tip. A Kamisori will definitely be an option. (y)
Can't rally go wrong for that price. How bad could it be? Edit: had a quick scan of the comments. Seems it's a bit underpowered and has bad battery life. However, for a quick trim of some already quite tidy hair, or just as a spare, seems a good price. Heat Edit 2: this review is a bit more concerning, bulging batteries that can spontaneously combust bad :(
Latest review says it couldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding (lol)

The actual Xiaomi shavers are pretty good for the money. Lots of variants - newer models are USB C (lead) charging, older on a dedicated USB dock/ stand.
I edited the title just to make that clear. Hope most of us will be happy with that. (y)
I got one of these the last time they were on offer and frankly it was useless as an electric razor. I bought a Panasonic foil razor from Amazon for £25 and it's a thousand times better. Very disappointing. And I don't have a particularly luxuriant beard either e.g. I wouldn't grow a beard because it looks terrible as it's so patchy and sparse.
Agreed but this doesn't make it a Xiaomi branded product. I believe the OP has purely added that as clickbait to generate more heat.

I bought one of these at the height of the pandemic from Amazon for £20 and it works well but you have to remember to keep it flat and not angled on the head when using it. The downside is the mains cable which is not very long and the plug is a shaver type plug so needs an adaptor which i bought for £1 at Poundland. If buying again would go for a cordless. This is a good price though.
My philips one has a warning sticker on it saying not to use it when charging, but may vary per model, just checked it. Maybe not an issue but i'm bad for not charging them, so need one that has the 10 minute quick charge option.
It would be nice to have a quicker charge for sure, however you also have the option to use it corded if you have forgotten to charge
Would try and get a slightly more expensive one for a quicker charge, with these if you've forgot to charge it you are out of luck, the slightly dearer ones can charge in an hour vs 8 hours for this.
Good to see a real world first hand review of the product. Seems a good price to me for what it is. Couldn't be without the vacuum function myself, more important than being able to adjust length of hairs to such a tiny granular degree.
Can't confirm if this is a good price but I can confirm its a good product which has served myself faultlessly for 2yrs now.
That's the problem I don't think u can find a trimmer that has bigger grades to trim beard so looks like we need to move up to a Clipper
I don't need one for the hair just beard as just guessing at moment
Wahl do the cordless Clipper called colour pro with grades up to 8 (25mm) but price gone up £5 to £35 , think im gonna go for this as I need one too for beard plus the odd haircut comes with 3 years guarantee too
Yeah really good I paid £40. Recommend it
Really good deal. I paid £39.99 few months ago from argos when it was new. It does a Brilliant job !
Is this good for grooming. Co cerned abkhy some reviews
Ha the last line hahah
no way - burns like hell
Bought this one myself last year. Went in the bin as it takes forever to charge for a few minutes run time. Also when plugged in it doesn't bypass the battery to be used so it's pretty much dead all the time. Most of the time it just ripped the hairs out.
The Subscribe & Save orders are treated as normal orders at the moment for me. It seems there are problems with Amazon's system. Don't know how Amazon train their customer service, but a lot of them are idiots.
15.20 subscribe and save for me, bargain
Thanks, great price for great blades, have ordered.
