The Philips OneBlade — A Better Shave Than You Ever Thought POSSIBLE. — Man TrimmingThere’s a pretty universal truth when it comes to Black men and grooming—we can’t shave our faces with just anything.

I mean, I learned to shave like most dudes—my Dad got me disposable razors in my early preteen years, showing me how to carefully drag the blade across my skin, pulling taut now and then to make sure I got everything in even the trickiest of spots.

But you know what happens when you cut tight curls with a cheap razor and let it grow back?

Razor bumps.

The curse of Black men everywhere, it often feels like you can’t shave your face without avoiding razor bumps. I know gents who hit the barber shop weekly for a line up and a shave, but not everyone has the luxury of time or the dollars to do that 52 times a year. In my case, I got a barber-grade Andis T-Outliner that’s been a dream to work with… but as a wired unit, what’re you supposed to do when an outlet isn’t handy?

If you ask Philips, they’d give you an answer—the Philips OneBlade!
