Remington Smart Edge Pro – review

Christmas is around the corner and I’m sure, like many of you, there are so many parties and events planned over this festive season that it’s amazing how you can fit it all in.

So far, I have three Christmas parties planned with my office alone, and then countless others with friends and family.  My husband has just as many planned too. We are both thinking that we are going to have to be super organised to be able to fit everything in.

One way to ‘shave’ off some time would be to ‘cut’ down on our beauty routine (can you see what I’m doing here!! hehe)

Anyway, my husband was delighted when he received the amazing Remington Smart Edge Pro XF8700 – which is a foil shaver.

The Remington electric shaver has loads of great features, and to a newbie like my husband, it was pretty easy to understand them all.  The shaver is great as the flexible pivot head moves around the contours of the face to shave hairs that are really close to the skin.  It has been designed so that there is less pulling on hairs whilst shaving which also means there is less irritation (great feeling for the men….and the women when we get kisses under the mistletoe!).






The shaver is powered by Lithium batteries which has a 60 minute cordless run time (and the display shows how many minutes of battery time you have left). This is a great feature if you are using it whilst travelling. The shaver is also 100% waterproof, which is a must really.






The charging unit is pretty good.  There is a stand/docking station to hold the shaver whilst it is being charged.




The Remington Smart Edge Pro XF8700 Shaver has the following features:


  • AccuCut Blades
  • LiftLogic Foil
  • PivotAssist Plus & ConstantContour technology
  • Ergonomic and optimised design for greater comfort in use
  • Lithium Powered
  • 60 mins usage time
  • 90 mins charge time
  • 5 mins quick charge feature
  • LED display showing remaining minutes of battery life
  • Pop-up trimmer
  • Universal voltage
  • 2 year guarantee
  • Cordless
  • 100% waterproof
  • Travel lock
  • Charge stand and travel pouch


My husband has always been a razor man (which is pretty amazing considering he is a man’s man – if you catch my drift!).  He has said he has always found razors to give him a better, smoother finish.




The first time my husband used it he did take quite a while to get the hang of it. But he tried again and realised he was only going in one direction, whereas he could go up, down etc.  He can now have a safe and clean shave in less than two minutes!  He is a happy man!He tried the Remington Smart Edge Pro XF8700 and he was totally blown away.  He has been using it everyday for the last 2 weeks now. He loves it.

He has also noticed that the closeness of the shave means he doesn’t have to shave everyday now.  He now shaves before he goes to bed and it is still smooth two days later! Another win for Remington.

The shaver does say to use it for a little while before you really see the full effects of it.  I think this is so you can get used to the shaver as well as your skin gets used to it.

My husband thinks this is a great product and is so glad he has switched from his old style grooming.  It has certainly ‘shaved’ a lot off his grooming time!
