Buyer Satisfaction

What Online Buyers say about the Remington F3 Electric Shaver?


  • The general consensus of UK buyers is that this is a very good value for money shaver
  • The majority of buyers were pleased with their shaver and said it delivered a nice close shave
  • Buyers said it was fast to shave with this model
  • Buyers also said it was nice and light and felt pretty good in the hand
  • They liked the fact that you could use the floating heads for the contours of the face, but could also lock the head if you preferred
  • Buyers also liked the battery life


  • A number of buyers did not like the placement of the popup trimmer
  • There is no low battery warning - There is a battery gauge)
  • Foil replacements can be expensive but thankfully only need to do that every 2 years

We noticed that the majority of bad reviews came from people who are used to wet shaving. It is worth pointing out that no electric shaver, even the expensive ones, will ever replicate the closeness and smoothness of a wet shave with a sharp blade.

What you need to know about the F3 model?

  • Foil shaver - this is a dual foil shaver and the oscillating blades (cutters) sit under the foil. As a general rule foil shavers are always better suited for any person with sensitive skin. A rotary shaver will give a slightly more aggressive shave. You can buy replacement foils for this should the foil wear out. We found these on Amazon for around £7 and also on eBay. Most foils last for about 18-24 months. You can also purchase the foil and cutting heads online and it is around £17 for the full set of these. You should replace foils if they show wear and tear, or you feel the shaver pulling at hairs. You should also replace the foil if you notice the shaver starting to irritate your skin.
  • Charging - It takes around 4 hours to fully charge this shaver. There is no 5 minute quick charge. On a full charge you can shave for around 40 minutes. At around 5 minutes a shave that is enough to last you for a week if you shave once a day. There is an LED gauge that shows you how much charge you have left. The charger lights up when it is charging and the green light goes out when fully charged. You can't use the shaver while it is charging. It is worth noting that this shaver comes with a 2 pin shaver outlet plug. If you want to use it by plugging it into a socket you will need an adaptor. We would recommend the Masterplug Shaving Adaptor which costs around £1.50
  • Trimmer - this pops out of the back of the shaver. It is like most trimmers on electric shavers as they are just OK for trimming side burns to create a neat edge. Like many others we found this to be flimsy and just awkward to use. We mention the trimmer as many shavers have these and this model has that type of standard trimmer.
  • Cleaning - This shaver is not IP rated and it is not waterproof. You can wipe the outside of the shaver with a damp cloth. For a full clean the head of the shaver does come off with a push button head release. You can then rinse the cutters (underneath the shaving head) and the shaving head itself under warm running water.

Remington F3 Shaver Summary

We do a lot of research on electric shavers. This Remington F3 model is a basic foil electric shaver. There are not that many features so really not that much that can go wrong. It is in our opinion one of the best value for money electric shavers on the UK market. There are not that many electric shavers around for under £25. Any that we did find were from brands we have never heard of. Remington are a well established brand and this one comes with a 2 year warranty. You can extend this warranty if you register the shaver online. So that would give you some peace of mind with a full 3 year warranty.

This shaver is a little slow to charge compared to others which can charge fully in an hour. That said that type of shaver will be 3-4 times more expensive so it is a bit of a trade off. The majority of buyers said this gives a close shave, has a good battery life and is easy to clean and look after.
