MicroForce: World's first underwater shaver

I just glanced up at the muted TV above the treadmill/laptop and saw what appeared to be a guy shaving underwater, in someone's swimming pool.

That's different, I thought.

Though not necessarily what I'd want people doing in my pool, if I had one.

It's true, I've done worse.

But I digress.

I had my crack research team investigate and sure enough, ShavePro's MicroForce razor does indeed work underwater — though they don't recommend it as S.O.P.

I have been using a Micro Force now for about a year and I like it. But I have worn out 1 of the blade protection films and cannot find where I can get any new ones. When the 2nd one wears out I guess I will have to go back to using a safety razor again.

I have used the Microforce and I have to say it was horrible. I really wouldn't recommend it to anyone!

Dont buy a MicroForce....

It worked okay on some parts of my face such as my cheeks and sideburns, but when it came to my neck and chin and pretty much tore up my face and didn't shave those areas at all....

Also your facial hair has to be pretty short for it to work at all.... If you can grow facial hair pretty quick and you wait more than 2 days to shave, you're screwed if Micro Force is your only razor....

Don't buy, but if you are going to buy, ask for the special (free) kit and razor to be shipped together that way you're not charged S&H for two items....

Actually, it works fine for me, is small, light and rechargable. $20 isn't much for a decent shaver. The way (the ONLY way IMHO) to buy anything like this is at CVS or other drugstore that sells them, rather than the TV/800 number route. My wife just got scammed on another product that they now sell at CVS at the same price. Sales tax is cheaper than the shipping and "handling" (which is where the marketers make most of their $$$)

haha, I knew there was something wrong, there is no such thing as an "as seen on tv" product that works or is just like they make it seem

thanks for your review, you helped me save that little cash I still have.

Here we come to a misty edge between out-and-outright lying and bullshit. Telling the truth requires telling the whole truth or at least the part of the whole truth that most people are likely to think is important. You have been bullshitted. What was told to your or what you were made to believe was part of the truth but not the whole truth. Some important details were left out. I consider it a fraud. Withholding part of the truth about a deal from a purchaser is a bad business practice and I would notify the attorney general of the state where you live and the state where the seller originates its ads.

The MicroForce shaver works somewhat ok. Not the best I’ve ever had. BUT ---

The offer I responded to offered buy a shaver at $19.99 + $6.99 shipping and handling = total of $26.98.

But wait – that’s not all! If you order now, we’ll include this special kit that includes two nail clippers, shoehorn, clothing brush, etc. etc, etc. at NO EXTRA CHARGE; you only pay shipping and handling. Now, from my calculation, that adds another $6.99 to the first $6.99 and $19.99 for a total of $33.97.

What I got was a charge of $26.98 for the first item, and a second charge of $45.28 for the “special offer” that was advertised for “only shipping and handling”. The kit also included another shaver!

When I called and explained my confusion, the party I spoke with was less than helpful. I had to explain three times, and almost beg for information about how to get a refund. All she wanted to talk about was, “You can keep the kit as our gift to you (some gift - $45.28!!), just return the shaver, and we’ll refund you the purchase price of $19.99. No shipping, no handling, no taxes.


The way I see it, this scamming outfit made $52.27 off this sucker. Doesn’t take too many like me to make these people rich.
