The Babyliss I-Stubble Side Profile
Stubble is something you either love or you hate...
Since I'm writing this article you have probably guessed that I prefer it to a clean shave, personally I think that it gives a much more manly look as apposed to that baby boyish clean shave appearance.
So what about the product ?
Well this article is all about the product and not my preference to facial hair !
The new I-Stubble has been improved dramatically to its predecessors, before this version the old i-stubbles have been slaughtered for mainly one big point, which is battery life, luckily this version has been made with what I can only imagine, that critical feedback in mind.
On one full charge I can get around 7 full shaves out of the product, however as the battery does start to reduce the blades rotate allot slower, this in my experience doesn't make much of a difference to the overall shave, but it is a point to consider to other people as this might make a difference to them.
The product has a digital display showing what length you want you facial hair to be, corresponding with your input, its very easy to program with simple up and down arrows to set the desired length.
The product also comes bundled with blade oil, the charger and two cleaning brushes to keep the blades at there optimum.
NOTE TO KEEP IN MIND TO UK USERS ABOUT THE CHARGER
I personally bought this at amazon and found on arrival that it comes with a standard European plug with no converter, so you will need to go and buy one of those travel plugs. Luckily these are very cheap and can be bought from many shops and online stores.
Does the product cause any irritation ?
One of the great things about actually leaving stubble on your face is that the blades of the product don't actually come in contact with the face, therefore unless your allergic to the plastic comb guide then you will get no irritation at all.
The price and overall shave result
The average price online is around £30 GBP, however if you shop around like any product you will be sure to find a the same product for cheaper.
I'm overall very impressed with the look and finish that the product gives after a full shave, its very neat and the product is so far very reliable.
Problems that others have had with product.
Some people have said that they did find it difficult to get hairs around the nose area, I have not experienced this problem, but as always everyones face and therefore contours are different which would be the reason why some people have this problem and others do not.
There is always the option of removing the comb guide so you can get those stray hairs off with the bare blade which is what I do on the odd occasions.
Overall I really could recommend this product to anyone in the market for a bit of stubble
