I suspect the proprietary refills will be expensive as compared to products like Barbasol shave cream. Preferring a cool water lather - the heated portion of the machine would be superfluous. If left in the heater base is there a possibility of explosion hazard considering the propellant in many canned shave creams is propane? Otherwise, great stuff!
I had that in 1980. Without the heat. Actually it influenced me to use a brush my entire shaving life.
I had the gillette brush plus system. I used several refills, then took to applying a gel directly on top of the bristles and face lathering. Once it became worn, I went to a VdH brush. But the expectation of using a brush was born and stayed even when using carts.
Welcome back @Justin Linker
I wouldn’t touch that... that’s just me personally. It also doesn’t look safe imo. I’m sure the heater has a timer on it to shut off in a certain time frame but all you need is the wrong can of barbosol/ Gillette/Schlick and boom. There it goes and possibly up in flames. I believe these cans also have a warning to not heat them up. This is definitely playing with Fire. Not to mention not wetting the brush and applying looks incredibly drying. The target market is confusing as well. Most guys that use a brush are trying to find better creams/soaps for their skin. Why would I want to use that? The market for this is very narrow as you would only be targeting newbies that don’t know any better. Most Cart users have no intention of using a brush nor do most even know how or want the maintenance of one. Ultimately I like the innovation but just don’t see enough sales for that sort of product.

Umm, nope. If you are that serious about your shaves you'd be using a traditional brush with traditional soap.
Think of it as a gateway device.
I do like the fact that it may draw some people to proper wet shaving. I only hope that when people realize this doohickey is a piece of junk, that they'll try a proper brush and scuttle.
