    The lint remover comes with a power cord, an extra blade, a storage bag, and a cleaning brush.

    "I got this because my favourite sweaters were starting to look kind of grungy. I tried using lint rollers, but they weren't picking up enough of the pills on my knits, and it was so time consuming. This electric shaver got rid of ALL the annoying pills and my sweaters look good as new. It's super gentle on clothes and it took way less time to get rid of the pills." —Kaysey Davis

    "For the last decade or so I've suffered with dry, cracked hands that bleed of their own accord. Using this regularly has stopped my hands from getting as bad as they were before, and its moisturising effects last for quite a while so there's no need to keep slathering more on. The consistency is more firm than a regular lotion, and once applied it sinks into the skin quickly without feeling greasy." —Jasmin Nahar
