What Buyers Say About the Babyliss Ceramic Smooth Cut?
When buying a multi use, codeless and mains, product at this price point from a quality manufacturer, buyers expect to get a product that is a "cut above" the more basic models. With 80% of users rating this clipper either 4 or 5 out of 5 it seems this product does fulfil those expectations, it is well worth looking at what actual buyers and users have to say. These are after all people who have bought the product, used it and then taken the time to leave a review.
Underneath I have summarised those reviews to save you the trouble of doing that. The ratings are based on a star system, with 1 being the lowest rating, and 5 being the highest. Here is a percentage breakdown of those.
At a quick glance, you can easily see that well over half of all buyers rated this as a 5 star product with almost one in 5 rating it 4 out of 5 so it clearly did the job for those buyers. About 1 in 10 buyers gave it a 1 star rating and there doesn't seem to be any trend in the reason for the low reviews apart from people didn't like the feel of it. Overall it attracts an average rating of 4.2 out of 5 stars.
If you look at the overall ratings around 4/5 of all buyers stated that this clipper was excellent or very good so you would have to assume that this should be a highly recommended unit.
