I'm Not Crying Tears of Joy, But This Is Great
on December 10, 2013
I have to say, I'm impressed. Frustrated with my struggles to remove the forest growth, I used this cool new thing called the internet and asked using the keywords: back hair shaver.
Let's preface this by saying that I have been embarrassed by back hair my whole life. I finally gave up and just let it be. I tried waxing it: temporary success. Nair: stinky, messy, and not able to cut through the whole forest. Plus you need an accomplice. Same with a razor, and then I just started using a hair clipper and many different configurations, including duct taping an extension to it, which didn't work. And laser removal? What a joke. Thousands of dollars wasted, multiple multiple (that was intended) sessions, with the equivalent of going after an overgrown football stadium with a weedwacker, one follicle at a time.
When it came, I was admittedly a little disappointed. The package was light (good things are heavy). The package it came in required a cutting torch to get through it- well, not that bad, but I had to track down scissors, which is unusual for me. I looked it over, then plugged in the charger to get it ready for the morning, thinking, I'd give it a shot and if it wasn't what I wanted, I'd send it back.
It is light so you can hold it and maneuver it. The extensions were amazing. It made short work of my back and I had so much time left over I went around front as well. I look like a Greek God. Again, more hyperbole. But damn it, where were you in my youth?! I needed you so much then!
Anyway, great product. It isn't so much getting five stars for rugged heftiness (I'm still a little biased toward heavy tools) but for function, adaptability, and sheer genius. Stop wearing the wool sweater year round. I didn't know that your shirt tickles your back when there's no hair there. It's like gentle fingers massaging you all day long. Buy this product.
