Babyliss 7890U Review
The 7890U is an i-stubble trimmer from Babyliss that has proved to be very popular indeed with buyers. You can still get this model over at Amazon in the UK. However it has been replaced with the Babyliss 7895U. If you prefer to read about that newer model then please click on this link.
This older model though still sells really well. As such we wanted to make sure that we included a full review on this. If you would like to see a full list of stubble trimmers compared side by side, then please click here.
As we have mentioned this 7890U model still remains a firm favourite with UK buyers. Let's have a closer look and find out why that is still the case.
As you can see it certainly looks the part and is a very stylish choice. It also comes from the very well recognised Babyliss brand. This brand does a number of popular trimmers such as the Super trimmer, the 7895U and the 7847U models.
The 7890 though was one of their earlier models and was one that was very well tested. If you would like to read reviews about this model over at Amazon then please click here. If you would like to keep reading about this model, then we have done a full review below.
7890U Detailed Review
This is a rechargeable cordless model that can also be used as a corded version. That is ideal if you have a bathroom style shaving socket. If you don't have one of those then you will need to use an adaptor. With that you can plug it into the mains and it is good to go.
You will of course need to do this as and when it requires charging.
It is accurate and has cutting lengths of 0.4 mm to 5 mm. That is a decent range and good enough for most users. Anything more than a 5 mm stubble and you are better off buying a beard trimmer.
This model comes with a 3-year guarantee and many buyers like that. It does have a nice sturdy feel to it and it also feels really good in the hand.
Contoured Head - 7890U
This model has similar features to most of the popular models. What makes this one slightly different is that it has a contoured head. That allows the head to move, almost float, around the face and that allows it to cleverly follow the actual contours of your face.
That's important as most guys like their stubble to be the same thickness all over their chin and under their neck.
With some trimmers this head is fixed and you have to manually adjust it to get the right angles. That makes this a useful feature, and also speeds up the shaving process.
This model comes with a cleaning brush, some lubricating oil, an instruction manual and a money back guarantee leaflet.
Buyer Reviews on the 7890U Model
Overall over 750 buyers rate this product at 3.9 out of 5 stars.
Ideally here at the Emporium we like to see at least 4 stars. At 3.9 it is not that far away. The things that people liked most were as follows:
- Felt really good in the hand - it is a decent size and fits into the hand really well.
- The digital display works well and is easy to read and easy to use
- It is accurate and the blades are sharp and that means no risk of snagging
- Looks really good
The things buyers didn't like were as follows:
- Does not come with a pouch or any type of case
- It is not anything that special
- It is expensive at over £100
You should be able to see from this that most of the reviews are good. There are some people who just felt it was not great value for money. There are for sure some cheaper models available. This one though is sturdy and appears to last according to the buyers.
There are plenty of stubble trimmers on the market right now. They range in price quite a lot. This 7890U model from Babyliss is at the higher end of the price points but does get consistently good reviews.
