I recently went on a beach vacation and packed super light. What more do you need than a swimsuit and flip flops, right? Well, you need a shaver too because they don’t call it a bikini line for nuthin’! haha! 😉
I typically like to just have a carry-on for trips like this so I don’t have to pay to check a bag (I have a million other ways I’d rather spend that $50). I didn’t want to get flagged at baggage check for bringing a disposable razor through. Plus, bringing the shave cream, razor and my post-shave antiseptic wasn’t going to fit in the bag. So, with perfect timing, I got asked to review the ShaveTech USB-powered razor for the blog. I figured, worst case scenario, if it didn’t work I could just buy a razor once I got there.
Luckily, I didn’t have to! I actually really liked it. While it didn’t get AS close of a shave as a brand new razor, it did work really well (even in sensitive areas like my bikini line). It’s about the size of a smartphone and is recharged with a built-in fold-in fob that plugs into the USB port of a laptop or tablet. This is perfect if you travel abroad because its USB charger means that no overseas outlet adapters are necessary (as long as your computer is charged!).
Battery life is rated at approximately 30 minutes. Make sure you plug it back in after about two shaves or 25 minutes (manual says to not charge it each night and to let it run out of steam first) because it does shut down mid-shave without warning, leaving you with one partially shaved leg which won’t be in style any time soon! haha! 🙂
The ShaveTech travel razor is available for purchase on the ShaveTech site in black or white (mine was black and I loved it – super sleek!) for $29.99!
