Philips Norelco OneBlade QP2520/70 Review

Men having beards or other facial hairstyles don’t need traditional expensive electric shaver to groom their beards because they are not designed for trimming, instead, they are bulky and awkward. It’s nothing less than a surprise that this machine is a beard trimmer and a shaver as well.

As it is a one blade trimmer so it has a totally different design than other shapes by Philips. The Philips OneBlade trimmer is a bit narrow with bright lime green edges and the ergonomic design allows easy grip. There’s only one blade in the head which has tiny holds similar to the foil-style shaver for men. There is a circular on/off button located in the middle of the shaver.
