Welcome to the Dads, Grads, & Everyone in Between Giveaway Hop, hosted by the Blogging Mamas NetworkIt’s the beginning of Summer and a time when we’re celebrating Dads and Grads, but in this Hop we’re not leaving anyone out! Hop around to all the bloggers participating in the linky at the bottom of this post to enter awesome giveaways worth at least $25!

norelco-razorSo Chrystal asked me if I’d like to get an electric razor to review. I laughed. Years ago I used an electric razor for about a week and said “Never again.” I don’t know why (maybe the few glasses of wine I was primed with before the question), but I said “Sure, why not?”

So fast forward a couple of weeks and Chrystal presents me with the Philips Norelco Shaver 8800. I was like “What’s this?” She then proceeded to let me know of the commitment I made to review the electric razor and that I vouched to give it a solid week. I was like “awesome” in the most facetious way imaginable.

So I started to use the shaver.

Day 1: It worked; but it wasn’t great. I had to trim up with my regular disposable razor. I was like “Awesome, I get to do this for the next week.”

Day 2: “Really, I agreed to use this damn thing… ugh”

Day 3: “I guess when I’m fed wine I turn into a big SUCKER.”

Day 4: “HOLY S#!% it worked amazingly well; did Hell freeze over or is it the 2nd coming?” 

Day 5: “Best shave I’ve had up to this point in my life.”

Day 6: “It did it again… but even better. This Norelco 8800 is right behind beer.”

Day 7: “I’m not a sucker… woot woot. I’m in love with this damn thing.”

It just took a few days for my facial hair to get used to the shaver then it worked great. I’m so glad I didn’t give up on it after the first couple of days.

Fast forward 2 weeks… I made an amazing discovery. So I picked up the directions and read them. The electric shaver can be used to wet shave with foam and water. That’s what’s up. My face is now as smooth as a baby’s a$$. (Lesson learned: Read the directions first!”)

Today: “Best f@#%ing shave ever! Just got to make sure my face is lathered up and wet.”

I NEVER thought I’d be down for an electric shaver, but, I’m that guy now… and I’m totally cool with it. I still have a disposable razor as a backup, in case an EMP from a MCE hit the earth; but I don’t see that being used any time soon.

Seriously, check this thing out here on Amazon. As a dad, I can say “The Philips Norelco Shaver 8800 would be an f@#%ing awesome Father’s Day Present.”

Win One for Your Husband!

Philips is going to be giving one reader a Philips Norelco Shaver 8800 ($249 value) to gift to their husband (or the man of their choosing). You can enter for your chance to win via the Rafflecopter form below.
