I decided to give this razor a try for a@couple reasons. One, because you can shave forward and backward (whattt). Two, because of that, I was thinking because I have PCOS, side effect is rapid, unwanted hair growth (in unwanted areas) and it also causes my hair to sometimes grow weird. So I thought, why not give it a try and see if it helps in the spots were my hair grows odd and third, because I had been told by some friends who used it, that it was amazing. I have to say, by far, its been my favorite razor! Its so convenient and definitely gets the odd hairs (some like to grow into my skin) and its priced fairly! It leaves my skin so smooth and Im just so happy to get those few hairs that I had so much trouble getting with any other razor. I say its a must try at the very least!
