Review of Conair i-Stubble: Keeping Your Scruff Stylish
They say that scruff is the new black. Celebrities and power players are eschewing the clean shave for the five-o'clock shadow, but chances are, they're not just showing up after skipping the razor yesterday...
That stubble you grew over the weekend is a great start, but if you simply let it continue to grow, you'll be rocking a beard in no time. And that's a whole 'nother facial hair style... So if you want to keep your scruff stylish for more than a day or two, you'll need a good tool to maintain it. Conair for Men is about to release their answer to those needing some stylish stubble, the i-Stubble, and were gracious enough to send one to us for review.
The i-Stubble goes a step beyond the usual trimmers, with an electronic motorized length control system, giving you 15 ultra-precise settings. That's quite a few more options than most trimmers, and the handy LCD display shows you exactly how long your stubble will be at any given selection. It's got a "floating contouring head", meaning that the shaving head is not fixed, which makes it a lot easier to drive across all those curves on your face.
In the name of ShavingStuff, I gave up my safety razor for a week to put the i-Stubble through its paces, and I came away duly impressed.
This trimmer is a great daily grooming tool, with a strong battery (rechargeable) and plenty of power to keep my scruff in trim for the week without any thought of plugging it in. The length guide folds away easily to let you get in close with the razor, a must for sideburns, goatees, and moustaches, and the fact that it doesn't fully detach is a huge plus (I had the misfortune to misplace the guide from another trimmer after a move, and it made that trimmer almost useless to me afterward).
Cleaning is simple - just fold back the length guide and lift up the cutting head to remove it, or simply brush or blow out the whiskers afterward.
So if you're looking to upgrade your trimmer, consider the i-Stubble. It's a great tool. (No word yet on what Apple thinks of the name...)
[This razor has not hit the shelves yet, but we'll let you know as soon as it does.]
