Micro Touch Switchblade Product Review

For my latest product review I received a FREE Micro Touch Switchblade. I figured it would be something that my husband could try out.

You've probably seen the commercials for this product, right?

Well, if you're not too familiar with this product, it's basically a head-to-toe body groomer.
According to the box, it "trims hair anywhere with micro PRECISION!"
The box also says that it is a:
6 piece set with
  • a built-in light
  • 4 snap on guides
  • German stainless steel blades
  • can be used on nose, ear, eyebrows, neckline, and side burns
  • great for haircuts, arms, legs, back, chest, and more
  • battery operated by 2 AAA batteries (not included)
  • gentle on sensitive skin

This is what it looks like inside the box

Instruction guide (A definite read before using this product!)

Here are some before and after photos of my husband using the Micro Touch Switchblade






What did he think about the Micro Touch Switchblade?

He liked it, but didn't love it. Here is what he told me about it

Let's start with the Pros:
  • He said it worked well on his cheeks, chin, and mustache
  • Perfect size for travel 
  • Light is very bright
  • Good variety of attachment combs
the Cons:
  • He wishes it was something that could be plugged in and charged instead of battery operated (he prefers rechargeable things so that you don't have to keep on buying batteries)
  • He said it kind of hurt the thin, sensitive skin on his neck and left it a bit irritated

My Final Thoughts?
* I'm happy that he did like the product. I wish it had been something that he could love, but it's not.
* Also, I added in earlier that you should read the instruction manual before using this product. I said this because yes the blades are pretty sharp. I think that the bottom part (the bigger blades) can slice your hand if your not careful. You are supposed to slide the orange panel upwards to uncover the blade. Well, as soon as you slide it up as far as it goes, the trimmer turns on. If you slide it up carelessly, I think it is really possible to cut your hands! I think that the bottom blade should have some sort of safety latch? 

* I was playing around with it before my husband used it and was switching between the attachment combs and it turned on while I was attaching the comb--this seems a little dangerous in my opinion--but maybe this is not such a big deal for other people? I would think you might slice your hand by accident. I honestly think that this part of the invention should have been thought through a bit better

* I like that the top part of the groomer has a lid, unlike the bottom half

* I agree that it is a perfect size for traveling purposes

*I do like the fact that it has a really bright light because I think that would help you see the hair on your skin better--you know, especially the tiny or lighter hairs

*I like that the top trimmer has a power button on the back of groomer that is easy to press on and off

I do think that many men may find this product beneficial for quick grooming. I'm not too sure how well it would work for a haircut. My husband didn't use it to cut his hair because his hair is already as short as he likes it. He said he would rather use his regular clippers for this purpose. He did, however say he wouldn't mind using it again for simple maintenance on his face, minus under his chin, since it slightly hurt that part.
I don't know how well it would work on eyebrows, nose or ears. He doesn't have enough hair to trim in those areas, so he didn't use it there. If I were a male though, I don't know how safe I would feel using this blade near my nose or ears. I know it says that it's gentle on sensitive skin, but my husband says it's really not--well at least not on his skin!

If you are going to use the Micro Touch Switchblade, my husband says its more gentle while using the attachments rather than using the blades alone. 

Is it easy to clean?

Yes, with the tiny cleaning brush that is included. Just do it carefully so you don't get the tiny bristles caught between the blades, which I noticed happened a little while my husband and I took turns cleaning it.

8 Packing Hacks When Moving

Moving is almost rarely enjoyable. I mean, you have to pack up all your stuff just to unpack it again somewhere else? You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. Certain things can make it more enjoyable or at least easier, however. For instance, if you have found a great apartment for rent center city or similar, then you might find that this takes the sting out somewhat. However, there will still be things you need to bear in mind to ensure that you can do it right. The fun comes on the other end when you get to unpack and decorate somewhere new! Whether you’re moving to a new city, a new apartment, with a significant other, into your first married home…it’s exciting doing something new. Now, to get to the new, and past the terrible process of moving, here are my packing hacks. Label everything! Unless you’
