Get Grooming with Microtouch

Sometimes we gals forget that dudes have certain grooming rituals that could use some love and expert products. Fortunately Microtouch lent us a few tools to try out. Today's tester? My husband extraordinaire! A rather charming, hairy fellow, who shaves at least 3 times a week for his firefighter/paramedic gig.

Tool #1: Microtouch One metal razor. "For the nostalgic dapper dan, a classic razor that pays homage to the traditional barbershop shave. The single blade leaves your face with a clean and smooth finish."
He says: The handle was too short,  it was not easy to figure out how to use, and I therefore cut myself because of that. I would try using it again if I wanted to take the time. The blades are interesting— super thin and I didn't even realize they were in the small paper packets at first. This product is overall cool looking and has a nice design though.
She says: The blood! Oh the blood! This was a bit painful to watch. This blade comes with specific directions on how to use, with a key statement being to take your time and go slow, as it's a different sort of razor than everyday dudes are used to.

Tool #2: Microtouch Max. "[This] electric trimmer is gentle enough for the most sensitive skin, but still allows for a close shave. With 2 combs, and a built-in light, you can trim all the hair on your face, nose, ears and sideburns. 
He says: I love this thing. It's easy to use, it's small and it's narrow ended design makes it easy to get in all those hard to reach places. It also trims hair cleanly without any pulling or pain. The light feature revealed just how badly I needed this thing. 
She says: You know your husband loves something when he asks, "I get to keep this?!" after using. 

Tool #3: Mircotouch Switchblade. "The All-In-One head to toe groomer is great for in between haircuts, edging beards, the hard to reach ear and nose areas, and even for body hair that needs some touch up. 
 He says: I like that it has some bulk to it, but I prefer the light feature of the other one (Microtouch Max). It did a nice job trimming the edges of my sideburns.
She says: Along with the Microtouch Max, this seems like another awesome and simple grooming tool every guy could use.
