The Philips Norelco QS6160/50 StyleRazor Pro is an ideal one-stop solution for you’re grooming regime. As well as working as a straightforward electric shaver, it also has a built-in beard trimmer along with a detail trimmer for styling sideburns, goatees and moustaches. These features coupled with a lithiuim-ion quick charging battery make this new model in the Philips Norelco Styleshaver Pro range perfect if you’re looking for a single device too handle all your shaving needs.
Versatile and Easy to Use
The main problem with all-in-one groomers is that they are often a “jack of all trades, master of none”. For the most part the Philips Norelco QS6160/50 StyleRazor Pro manages to avoid this pitfall and put in a solid performance in each area. The grooming end of the Norelco easily matches the performance of its rivals and has a wide range of options and attachments to make styling easy whatever kind of facial hair you’re sporting.
The beard trimmer has a zoom wheel so you can adjust your beard/stubble length from 0.5mm up to 10mm. You also get a beard comb to ensure an even trim, along with a detail comb so you can get into those hard reach areas such as around the nose. Flip the QS6160/50 around and you’ll find the other side of the reversible trimmer which is designed for detailing longer hair such as sideburns and goatees and allows lengths of 15mm and 32mm.
At the other end of the StyleRazor Pro is the triple action foil shaver. Whilst it can’t quite compete with the smooth finish you might get from a dedicated electric shaver it still does a pretty good job and cuts hair easily without tugging at the skin or causing irritation. It is more effective if you are looking for a 5 o’clock shadow as opposed to a ultra close shave, but overall it’s a solid performer and works as well as any flat head razor, giving good results quickly and easily.
As you’d expect from Philips the Norelco QS6160/50 is a well built groomer and its build quality feels reassuringly solid. Despite the fact you flip and spin it to make use of the various heads it always feels comfortable in the hand and easy to maneuver.
The built-in lithium battery holds a decent charge whilst keeping the overall unit nice and light weight and it doesn’t take hours to charge like some other cordless groomers and shavers. You can get about 45-minutes or so of shaving and styling from a one hour quick charge and you also get a charging cradle rather than just having to plug the charger into the device directly.
The QS6160/50 also sports a maintenance free design so you don’t have to worry about oiling the blades every other day which makes a nice change from similar groomers and shavers. Even without having to use oil it always feels smooth against the skin and it’s easy to clean with a quick blow through and run under the tap.
