This trimmer doesn't work. Hopefully the one I bought is just defective, but I doubt it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Newton526 Worked 4 times
I'm a woman and used this product for the tiny very minimal nose hair I had. I purchased the product in the spring, it has been very gently used a total of 4 times and stored safely in an upright cabinet. This morning I went to use it and found it didn't work. Figured it was the battery - put in a new one - still doesn't work. Now I'm seeing this is a common occurrence. Total waste of money. I never write reviews, but was so dissatisfied with this product I had to!

All trimmers of this type-
Just put the tip underwater and it will come back on!
Don't know why, I just know it works. Thank you

Worked only three times and stopped working. After reading reviews on other sites I see this is a common problem with this unit. I will search for another brand.

I had the same experience as another user -- it suddenly stopped working. I tried fresh batteries also. Likewise I did not have the receipt so can't bring back. Won't buy another Phillips Norelco product again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Stillhairy Cannot recommend this
Used it about a month and it suddenly stopped working. Used a fresh battery that my tester showed was full power. Simply won't run now. The on-off switch is hard to use. I lost the receipt, so even though it is less than 45 days old, I have no recourse but to throw it away. If you need a nose trimmer, keep shopping!

Rated 4 out of 5 by John1942 Good product; note the importance of cleaning it
As happened to others, my trimmer suddenly wouldn't turn on after I had used it only a few times, even with a new battery. Fortunately I read the advice here to soak the blade end in warm soapy water for a couple of minutes, because that restored its functionality – even with the original battery!
I found it takes a while to get used to the unique cutting action and figure out how to make it do what you want, but then it works, at least for me, just fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Peterrabbit This trimmer from the first use was a step above ones I have used before.
It is easy to use. Idid not have to insert it for long before the nasty over-achievers (the hairs showing from my nose and ears.)were cut. It did not pinch or hurt ;in fact it was no trouble to use and the rinsing feature for cleaning makes maintenance convenient and quick. Its design is little awkward for packing but the plastic protector fits over it well.I am quite happy with it.
