I purchased this razor after my previous Remmington Smooth & Silky razor I had for several years would no longer take a charge. There are so many features about this razor that are disappointing but the bottom line is IT DOES NOT WORK! Having used electric razors for decades I have some sense of how an electric razor should perform. This razor is markedly inferior to your previous products. The overall quality of the product gave me some indication of what I might expect from it's performance . . . sadly it lived up to my dim expectations. I've had this razor for about 2 months and stop using it after a month of frustration. I would like to return this razor to you for a refund. Please tell me what you can do for me. Thank you.
My husband bought this shaver for me for Christmas. I had an older model Remington that had a couple of holes in the foil and it would chew my legs occasionally so I wanted a new one. I had been very happy with that product and was happy to receive a new one. That is, until I used it for the first time. I had to go over and over and over an area for it to maybe trim half of the hairs. It hardly cut anything, wet or dry. I would have returned this item to the store if I hadn't discarded the packaging. If this were my first Remington, I would NEVER buy one again. But I'm hoping mine is just a fluke. I have gone back to my old shaver, even though it hurts, and will be looking for new foils instead. I will also be contacting the company because it doesn't shave, which kind of defeats the purpose of having a shaver!
I had a Remington electric razor years ago and thought it was great. I enjoyed being able to shave whenever I wanted to, and it also seemed to be gentler on my skin than a blade. It lasted long enough that by the time I needed to replace the foils, they no longer made that model. After years of using cheap disposable razors I decided to try another electric, and oh how I wish I had read the reviews first! This razor simply does not work. At first I thought I needed to "get used" to it, but after over a month of using it every other day, I give up. It takes at least 15 minutes to get a barely acceptable shave on my calves. I have to go over each area 3-5 times from different angles and the shaver still leaves areas with long stubble that I have to go over again and again. The trimmer is nearly impossible to use, and I ended up with horrible "bites" and razor burn when I trimmed my bikini area. I have tried using this shaver in the shower and out, with skin totally wet or totally dry, using light pressure and heavy pressure, and I have never gotten acceptable results.
Bottom line: don't waste your money.
I've owned previous Remington shavers in the past and have been very disappointed with this purchase. It does not shave as close as the other shavers I have owned. The trimmer on the razor is set back too far and is pretty much worthless. Electric razors never give you the closeness that a straight razor does but my previous model (WDF 3500) did just about as good a job, the new razor does not. This past spring I purchased model # WDF 4820 for my daughter, it looks identical except for the color and was $20 cheaper. My model did come with a carrying pouch, cleaning brush and extra foil head...hers only had the brush. I now wish I would've purchased the same one or tried a different brand.
I purchased this product to replace an older Remington shaver. I have had many Remington shavers in the past and have been happy with them. This shaver was the first one that didn't remove the hair on my legs. Even after going over the same area several times, it leaves areas of hair. I do not have thick or coarse hair on my legs so am amazed at this shaver's poor performance.
When I shave my underarms the razor is very hard to work into the nooks and crannies of my underarm area. It also does not remove the hair even after many attempts to go over the same area. Also because of the design of the cutting blade it often nicks my underarm! Definitely not a pleasant experience!
At first I thought it was just me or I was exaggerating the poor performance of this product. Now after reading the other reviews I realize this shaver is substandard and a poorly designed product that does not do what it is designed to do...shave legs and underarms!
Definitely would not recommend this product!
Very good and easy to use,
Please go see the Every Lazy Girls Dream Razor review:
Smooth & Silky Rechargeable Shaver
Item # WDF4820
I reviewed that one... and I don't have it.. I meant to review this one with the aloe: since I own and use this one.
By the way... The aloe works.. haven't had dry irritated legs after each shave that I have done.
This razor was great for me. It shaved really well and the aloe vera worked amazing, my legs were not at all irritated like they usually are. I highly recommend the razor.
Long time Remington product user. This is a real nice razor. Seems to work best in the shower not dry shaving.Good value for the price, especially with the extra set of foils and blades.
haven't used it but once and I loved it! I would most certainly reccommend it
I love my Smooth and Silky Shaver! It worked like a charm and is super easy to use. My favorite feature is the bikini head guard which makes trimming a cinch. For everything you get is a definite value and will save you money in the long run since you will be able to stop buying pricey disposables!
Outstanding product. Last for years. You get more than your money worth.
Love it! It holds a charge well, and kept it's sharpness for quite awhile.
It works well wet, or dry and trims all most razor close. It is also very good in the hard to get places and gets them trimmed and smooth
I was hoping for a closer shave, but overall it works great.
This is the first rechargable razor I have used and why have I waited so long?! I love the wet/dry function because there are many times that I didn't shave and need to on short notice. It also has a great runtime of 30 minutes so I can get everything taken care of without it dying.
This shaver does pretty well so far however not quite as close a shave as my last Remington which I believe is not available any more. There were no directions about using the aloe strips. I love the rechargeable stand. And I was excited to get two sets of changeable heads for the shaver. It meets my needs . I will be using it only as a dry shaver and would definitely recommend it.
I love this razor. It works really well and I get a really nice shave with it. I have owned remington products for years and this one is just as good as all the others. You can't go wrong with remington.
East to use. Handles well and does a good job. For my wife who is incapacitated.
The razor is a little disappointing. I had another one a few years ago that seemed to be better. It was also by Remington and their expensive lady's shaver just like this one, but it gave a closer, smoother shave than this newer version does. But, this ones okay.
