Babyliss Pro Shaver Review: How Powerful, Efficient, and Convenient Is the Babyliss Pro FoilFX02 Shaver?

BabylissPRO recently released their foil-type electric razor “BabylissPro FoilFX02” with double foil technology for professionals in an uncommon design and shape. There are 3 models of color variations (silver, gold, and rose gold) in the Babyliss Pro series but the main devices and the functions are similar. There are too many things to break out about the new rising popular Babyliss Pro Foilfx shaver in this article that may help you decide if it is worth it for you.

What’s in the Box?

Since a professional shaver, it doesn’t come with too many fancy attachments but there are some useful items found in the box. After unboxing the package, you’ll find the following items in the box:

  • The BaBylissPRO Barberology FoilFX shaver itself
  • A metal foil protective cap attached to the shaver head
  • A cloth travel bag
  • Charging adapter with cord
  • A small cleaning brush
  • Manual

Features and Specifications Analysis

The BabylissPro Barberlogy  FoilFX is a professional-grade shaver for close shaving, fading, outlining, and detailing client’s faces, necks, and hairlines or personal grooming. Since a professional-grade shaver, it doesn’t have any extra deluxe features that luxurious personal groomers demand. But it has some great features that are able to provide a smooth and premium shaving facility.

Metal Frame:

There are very few electric razors that have been made with a metal casing even the most expensive Braun Series 9 has a plastic casing.

Babyliss manufactured their FoilFX shavers with a stainless steel frame that feels super hard and stronger than any other shaver I have ever tried.

I think the manufacturer wanted to give the professionals a durable and reliable shaving tool that can handle the heaviest load.

Two Cutting Elements:

Babyliss used double foil cutters on the shaving head for extra duty of shaving operation to reduce shaving time.

If you compare it with the single foil shavers, The FoilFXS2 will give you 2x faster shaving performance than the single blades.

Most importantly, the foils have been placed in a different measurements with 120°  up and down for maximum precision and versatility.

Hypoallergenic Foils:

The manufacturer used Titanium coated hypoallergenic gold foils on the shaver head for skin-friendly and irritation-free shaving results.

On the other hand, hypoallergenic foils last longer than regular steel foils.

The Babyliss pro foilfx02 shaver’s foils are flexible to move up and down independently which ensures super comfortable glides over the skin.

Rotary Motor:

Babyliss used a powerful rotary motor in this hard shaver for handling heavy-duty even on coarse head hairs.

As a result, the shaver can provide super smooth shaves, fades, outlining, and more without compromising the thickness of hair.

Since a powerful motor, it creates some noise during the operation but that is not unbearable.

Powerful Battery:

I liked the Babyliss Pro foilfx02 shaver’s NiMH rechargeable battery.

While you have many complaints about your cordless shaver’s battery power, BabylissPro is going to solve your problem.

The Babyliss pro shaver offers 3 hours of continuous cordless runtime with a full charge.

If you compare the battery power with the regular premium shavers on the market like Philips 9000, Braun Series 9, and Panasonic arc5; all the shavers provide a 1-hour runtime maximum.

However, the Babyliss Pro foilfx02 takes 3 hours for a full charge which is a pretty long time.

Cordless + corded:

Beyond long-time cordless performance, the Babyliss Pro shaver offers you to use the shaver with the cord while charging.

Babyliss provides a dual voltage adapter with a 3m long cord that allows you to shave cordless maneuvering long distances in the saloon or bathroom.

Consequently, you can endlessly shave with the shaver even if your shaver’s battery is empty.

Auto cover/shutoff:

Babyliss Pro added auto sensor technology in the FoilFX02 shaver that automatically turns off the shaver while putting the shaver without turning off the power.

Sometimes you may forget to turn off the shaver and put it on the countertop in the running mode.

This shaver will discontinue the running process after 1 minute of unused power.

Built Quality

The Babyliss Pro shaver comes in a luxury design but has a vintage shape that is different from the regular modern electric shavers.

Babyliss engineered the shaver, especially for the professionals and I think that is why they have chosen this squire shape of the shaver.

Again, the body of the shaver is fully made with stainless steel which looks more glossy and heavy than other electric shavers.

After unboxing the shaver will find the head is covered with a steel cap that is also very strong which you need to put off to use the shaver.

After putting off the cap you will find the hypoallergenic foils on the head that move up and down with a mild press of a finger.

There are two buttons left and right sides where the big one is the power button and the opposite one is the foil cassette release button.

There is nothing on the front side and rare side of the shaver except the Babyliss Pro logo.

At the bottom of the shaver, there are some specifications and directions, and moreover, the charging port where you need to attach the cord for charging.

In addition, there is a LED charging indicator that continuously blinks while charging the device.

Unfortunately, there is no battery life indicator in the device therefore you can not understand how much battery power exists before fully draining the battery.

But I think it would not be a big problem since it allows you to shave while charging.

The powerful rotary motor and the powerful battery are really appreciable that can provide professional-grade precision shaving.

I think the device has a good enough built quality and comparably better machine than the alternatives.

Our Test Result

Shaving performance of Babyliss shaver and How to use it.

Everything is a failure if the shaving performance is not good enough by a shaver machine.

The very fast-growing brand Babyliss used powerful technologies in their FoilFX shavers to deliver professional-grade shaving performance.

Again the Babyliss Pro shaver comes with two hypoallergenic foils and very sharp cutting blades that can cut hairs and beards smoothly in a comfortable manner.

However, the shaver doesn’t have a wet shaving facility which may be a downside for you if you are fond of shaving with shaving cream, foam, gel, and water.

But remember, it’s a professional shaver where professionals do not demand a wet shaver but a comfortable shaver.

While talking with “Chris Bossio” and Loren the barber, none of them blamed the shaver although it doesn’t have a wet shaving feature since comfortable enough for dry shaving.

You know, most of the dry shavers result razor burns and skin irritations for their harsh cutting process.

But the hypoallergenic foils of the shaver are very efficient for delivering maximum skin comfort in bump-free shaving.

Although a professional shaver, you can also use it for your personal grooming while you do not demand wet shaving and are comfortable with such a square-shaped shaver.

In terms of dry shaving performance, I’ll rate the Babyliss Pro FoilFX02 shaver 9 out of 10.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Babyliss Pro FoilFX02 is not a waterproof/washable shaver. Therefore, it is not allowed to rinse it.

So, you have to clean it manually in a dry condition with the cleaning brush provided with the package.

Fortunately, the shaver head is very easy to detach and brush off the inner blades.

To detach the foil head, you need to press the small button at the left/right side of your shaver and pull off the head.

Simply brush off the debris from the cutting blades and foil chamber and attach it for the next use.

Regularly cleaning of the head will prolong your shaver’s blade and foil life.

Replacement Part

The replacement foils and blades are available on the Babyliss website and on Amazon.

After getting your cutter’s performance dull, you should replace the cutter and foils to get optimum shaving results.

Fortunately, the replacement foils and cutters provide exactly similar performance and feel to the originals.


  • Close performance.
  • Hypoallergenic foils for comfortable shaves.
  • Universal voltage.
  • Auto cover shut-off.
  • 3-hour runtime.
  • Cordless + corded.
  • Built-in metal frame.
  • Affordable replacement parts.


  • Not for wet shaving.
  • Heavy device.
  • Not waterproof.
  • Not good for long hair.
  • No display for battery life.
  • Get smudges.
  • Noisy.


Babyliss Pro shaver is not a wet/dry shaver and doesn’t come with a regular modern electric shaver shape.

Although some limitations, it’s a perfect shaving machine for professionals and has professional-grade shaving performance in terms of close and comfortable results.

The built quality is really adorable and I liked the battery and the corded shaving facility of the shaver.

In short, it would be your great shaving companion if you are used to the squire shape and do not demand wet shaving.

Is the shaver good for head shaving?

Yes, but you have to trim the hairs first and make them stubble to shave close with the shaver.

Can you shave body hair with the Babyliss Pro shaver?

It’s not recommended to shave sensitive zones of the body and moreover, it’s only good for stubbles; not for long hairs.

Can you use the shaver out of the U.S.?

Yes, it’s a dual-voltage shaver.

What is the warranty period for the Babyliss Pro shaver?

2 years.


  1. Saved my moeny and provided me a great shaving experience. I don’t think someone should buy the overwhelming and super expensive Braun Series 9 since this affordable shaver can give a better experience. Loved it.

    • Good to hear from you. I think you are happy with close shaving results in the dry condition and that is why you suggest this shaver and disappoint to buy the Braun Series 9 shavers. I do agree with you that Babyliss pro provides great shaving results for smooth and close shaves. But the Braun Series 9 offers lots of modern facilities along with close shaving and that is why the manufacturer charges much. I also admit that the Babyliss pro is enough to have close shaves with comfort and great for professional precisions.

    • Hi David,
      The shaver comes with a cleaning brush that you need to use to brush off the debris. I think the cleaning and mainanance section of this article will help you to clean and maintain your Babyliss pro FoilFX02 shaver perfectly. If you have any confusion out there, do not hesitate to reply again.

      All the best.

  2. I’ve had my Babyliss Pro foil shaver for several years now for personal shaving. Love it. But I’m finding that it now needs charging after only 3 or 4 shaves. Can the rechargeable battery(ies) be replaced?

    • Hi Jack
      It feels very proud when you find your best shaver. However, it’s sad to inform you that BabylissPro doesn’t sell any replacement batteries for the Babyliss Pro shavers, and moreover users are not allowed to replace the batteries. If your shaver covers the warranty (2 years), you can contact the seller who is bound to replace your shaver or the battery. You can also talk with BabylissPro support on their website ( for further queries. In case nothing helps, you need to adjust to the current battery condition smartly or replace the whole shaver.

      -Best Wishes.
