The Micro Touch One Razor is a shaver that is designed to act like a modern version of classic one-blade safety razors, saving you money on blades while giving you a smooth shave.
Micro Touch One Razor is an Idea Village product sold under the As Seen on TV brand.
Micro Touch One Razor Features
The Micro Touch uses only a single blade to shave, saving you money on expensive blade cartridges. It also opens so you can easily clean the blade, meaning it does not collect gunk like the multi-blade cartridges, where hair and shaving cream can easily collect between the blades.
It is allegedly made from solid brass and is chrome plated and the makers claim it is precision crafted.
The few reviews found online were generally positive, just saying that it works as a shaver. The quality of the product was not mentioned.

- Claims to save money on blades.
- According to one purchaser, he could not opt out of the 24 extra blades while ordering and the company also tried to sell him several other things while he was doing his check out process (which he could opt out of).
This is the worst company I have ever dealt with in my life. Do not buy this product... They charged me twice, because my computer crashed in the middle of selecting what I wanted, I had to restart the process over. They did not allow me to confirm my options, instead they simply placed the order and took my money. Called customer service and they told me that the order was processed (both of them). They said I need to refuse the 1st order, but the 2nd order would be refunded immediately and not shipped... I just received an email that they shipped the order (that they said they wouldn't). This is the biggest scam going around.
In addition, I was called today regarding an unrelated item that thy were signing up for on a 1 month trial. It took me flipping out and yelling at the idiot on the phone to not send me anything or sign me up for anything because I don't want anything to do with their company...
Avoid them like the plague. I am going to be forced to call my bank and report fraudulent charges as they scammed me into ordering a product that I neither want, nor need, and will not cancel the order or refund my money... Horrible company, worst I have ever dealt with in my life...
Takes over 2 months to get this inferior, over Priced, dangerous razor.horrible customer Service. Once they get your credit card Number, you are screwed.if you try to cancel, They will tell you, that it was already shipped Out. They will call you a few times a week and Try to sell you more junk. Ric harrison should Be ashamed of himself. A big scam from every Aspect. The attorney general, needs to Investigate this rip off and make somebody Answer for this scam.
Like any online product, a person is risking money. Forget the money-back guarantee. Rick Harrison, a businessman is banking on fact, 'most individuals NEVER return items purchased online. Yep, All The Way to His Bank. My order, REALLY added extra to it; I bought TWO! So, gave one to my barber with request he give me instruction for best method to use it. Well after three weeks use, the Micro Touch One, does give a cheap shave... CHEAP, Not just inexpensive, but it fails give a Close shave.
My barber notified me with similar result today. He Tried Everything, many methods. However, my professional- barber cannot obtain a CLOSE shave. A USER WILL OBTAIN AN INEXPENSIVE SHAVE, but not a close-shave.
I ordered this product for my husband and you have to verbally state your address several times which I clearly did and my purchase was shipped to arizona when I clearly stated new york (they sound nothing alike) I called customer service and they told me there is absolutely nothing they could do because it had already been shipped and that I would need to call back in 5 days. ... There was no grievance for what they have done. Worst customer service in my entire 30yrs on this planet
Questionable sales tactics
I originally ordered this razor February 25, 2014. Within 24 hours, I received phone calls wanting me to sell me additional unrelated products. Out of frustration, I told the company to shove the razor up their a** and that I didn't want this product because of the pressuring calls. Nearly 2 months later I noticed a hold on my debit card. Immediately I called the company on April 15, to inquire about the charges. I was told that it was for the razor that I ordered in February. The customer service department told me that they could not do anything because the product had already shipped. They said that if I did not want it, simply refuse the package.
The product actually shipped on April 17, two days after I had told the company for the second time that I didn't want this product. I ordered safety razors from The Shave Shop on February 29. The razor was much nicer, as well as cheaper and the shipping was free! I also received the razor within 7 days. To make a long story short.
I had been using my new razor for 6 Weeks when one razor/idea village shipped something that I had cancelled. This companies sales tactics are illegal and I have reported them to the Fair Trade Commission as well as The BBB. I urge you to do the same if you have had problems with them. I am certain they will not continue to force their product and unwanted sales pitches on the public.
I have no idea how the one razor rates as far as quality because I fully intend to refuse the package. Before you buy this product, do an online search and compare products. This is the only company that I have read complaints about the sales pitches.
Rick harrison should be arrested BIGGEST SCAM OF 2014
Micro Touch Razor is a terrible product in every way. Poorly made, over priced. You will cut your face. They will call you several times a week and try to get you to buy even more junk. it took 2 months to get it in the mail. Terrible company to deal with. Blades are very cheap and poorly made. The biggest scam in 2014.
Rick Harrison should be ashamed of himself. Most people liked him and trusted him. He did not deliver what he claimed on TV. You will not save money, because the razor will cut you very badly. It takes four times longer to shave, because the razor is dangerous to use. In this day in age, most people don't have an extra 40 minutes to shave. You will certainly not get the best shave of your life but instead you will receive facial trauma and may even require medical treatment. And yes, I also can read and follow directions and I do have a PhD.
Rick has destroyed his credibility by being involved with this scam. I hope this review will help you in making a wise decision.
worst shave of your life and you will not save money
takes 2 months to receive this terrible product. you will be harassed multiple times a week, by phone and solicited to buy more junk. the razor is a cheap japan razor. blades are cheap. you will get multiple cuts and razor burn. I regret falling for rics false claims. I followed the instructions as written, but the razor and blades are sub standard. big rip off. it seems like most of the reviewers agree with me and give similar testimonials. and yes I can read, write and understand the English language. you will get the worst shave of your life and you will not save money and you will cut up your face.
Received my razor and tried it out today. What a piece of crap! The blades are junk. After a hot soak in the shower I lathered up and proceeded to shave. When I rubbed my face I couldn't even tell that any whiskers were gone. I also shave my head and got the same results.Without laboring on I had to relather and use my multiblade to get the desired results.Typical made in China crap!
After you place the order you might as well have the phone ready because you are going to be inundated with phone calls from these people and their other subsidiaries.
buyer beware, do not buy this product
It took 2 months to receive it in the mail. Apparently, they do not carry any razors in stock and they order them from Japan as the orders come in. Over priced and a pre historic way to shave. You will cut your face up and get the worst shave of your life. I read the directions and followed them to a tee. still got multiple cuts and razor burn. looking at all of the reviews, the overwhelming majority agree with me , this is a bad product. in this day in age who has an extra hour to spend very slowly and carefully using this inferior product trying to shave and save money, but also trying not to go to the emergency room. You wont save money at all, but you will regret that you fell for Rick's get rich quick scam. stay away from this rip off.
Good Product, Strange Sales Tactics
I received my Micro Touch One Razor today and it is nice, seemingly. While choosing what to order, you have some choices. So you know, if you are going to do the German blades, (they offer you an upgrade to German blades,) say "no" to the offer of getting the upgrade for $20, since if you say "no," they offer them to you again, but for $10. As well, they give your name to a place called Bargain Savers. Someone calls from Micro Touch One and they put you on the line with the Bargain Savers people.
They try to sign you up for a club where you pay $1 for a 14 day trial period and if you do not cancel, you are charged $29.95 per month to remain in the club. If you do not give them your credit card number though, they will not sign you up for the trial period.
NOT what its cracked up to be
By the time you are all done with the order it's $40.00 plus. Yes, I did order some extra blades; shouldn't you? My experience is this; it gives a mediocre shave and is not good at all when it comes to shaving close to a beard line. I was sucked in by the "save money" angle and over the years I have cringed every-time I needed to buy blades for my (five blade razor) but what Micro Touch has done, is make me realize the value in those "over priced blades". My Micro Touch now sits in the drawer with the stock up of extra blades and I am back to using my old razor simply because the expensive blades just do a better job, much better job; wish they didn't. I do not see what others on here rave about; maybe corporate promotion ad writers?
Worth making the switch, with a caveat
I have never bothered to write a review about a product I've purchased, but I feel the need to in this case. I, like many, bought the onetouch because I was tired of spending such astronomical amounts for complex blades you just throw away, and they would only last about a week and a half. The one touch seemed like the solution was looking for, and I had heard of others getting up to a month out of a very inexpensive blade. My first few uses were much like the bad reviews you read about here, but the difference is, I didn't give up at that--I looked into it more.
Turns out, you CANNOT expect to just substitute one of these in for your modern, expensive razor--you do need to accept that a shaving brush and soap/mug is part of the required kit. Once I watched some youtube videos about how to do that right, I made that change and saw great results. After a few more days, I had the procedure down. I think I now get a nick more often than I did before, but here's the end result, after using these things for about 3-4 months now: -I get 3-4 weeks out of each very cheap blade -I bought a brush/mug/soap kit on amazon for maybe $25 -It appears the soap will last me about 6 months (still plenty) -I have only been through about 3 blades -Shaving is kind of fun, and it does a good job. The razor/blades/box/blade stand are all quality products. -I can basically cross shaving supplies off the regular drug store shopping list--products last a LONG time
See it through, give it a chance, and you'll be happy to not support the big companies in their over-advanced, overcharged blades, and your shave will be good. I haven't looked back.
yes i can read, but this razor is garbage.
Cheap, dangerous and overall terrible product. Don't waste your time and or money. This razor blows.
Don't waste your money. I called and told them I'm returning it. They offered me a $5.00 gift to keep it. $5.00' yea right. I have to pay return postage, but I'll get some of my money back. I was charged $12.98 S&H. It probably took them 10 seconds to put the Razon in the box. Be careful what you buy on the net.
Followed directions and it works as good as anything out there. I think all these people bashing are foolish and are not capable of reading much less following directions.
I really like this razor!
After seeing this on TV I thought about it.. BUT... I had previously learned about all the pitfalls from ordering that way (shipping fees, phone calls, e-mails, etc.) So I decided against it. Then I saw it at a "As Seen on TV" store and decided to fork over the $21.99 and give it a try. It came with 12 blades.
My main concern was that it would cut or nick my face, as many razors do. Surprisingly though, I didn't get one nick and I even decided to shave both my face and head. It gave me a very close shave, was super easy to use... and it is at a minimum equal if not a closer shave that the Mach 5 shavers that I have been using at a much better price.
I just wanted to share my experience, I hope that helps others who are as cautious as I am about trying something new make up their mind.
I first need to say that I am 55 years old and have been bald for over 10 years, I use to have a razor like the micro touch, but I forgot that it was " Adjustable". All I remember was it was a GREAT razor, so I got the micro touch. The first thing the web site tried to do was "upgrade" to a better razor (why?), were the ones I got bad?, Then they wanted to upgrade me to a razor holder.
But forget all that, I get my micro touch and first thing I notice is the blades are "CHEAP", and the first time I used them, I cut my head, but I still blamed it on myself. Now after using this product for the last 30 days, I can say that it is not worth it. I went back to using my Gillette fusion, it does cost more to use ( I don't care), but all I wanted is a razor that work. So in MY option, I say do NOT buy this product.
I bought this razor for my husband and all I hear is it doesnt cut his facial hair. He says the blade barely shows. I over paid for this poorly designed razor and if i could kick ricks butt for sponsing this I would. Shame on you! Anything for a qick dollar right? So i would not recommend this to anyone. If you order it, you will be sorry that you over paid and the blades dont come out enough to shave.
poorly made, overpriced, dangerous-do not buy.
seems like every positive review, was written by ric Harrison, using another name. the majority of all the reviews are the same- the vote is in and the micro touch one, is very poorly rated. read the reviews. to say that, the people that write a bad review, do not know how to use this type of razor is ridiculous. obviously we all can read and write. the fact is, this razor sucks, in every way, shape and form.
A Good Razor, But Order Elsewhere
After considering the whole commitment to a straight razor's maintenance and upkeep, I thought a safety razor (of which this is a modern variant) would be the way to go. I opted for Amazon, just out of trust and familiarity.
For most of the demographic on here looking for a cheaper shaving product, this will prove a decent investment in the long run. But for anyone who expects to shave the way you do currently with a three, four, five blade razor - forget it. Yes, it is antiquated. It became outdated due to the demand for something that let's you pass a razor over your face once, and go. Those are razors for people shaving at the pace of the modern world. I promise you; IF you learn how to shave with this type of instrument - albeit you might also want to go with different DE blades than come with this product (shop around, the Internet is your friend) you be rewarded with a remarkable shave. This will make shaving a real skill in your life again. I really think the hygienic nature of the care for this sort of blade is a real perk among the cost. Barbers today still use razor's like these for a reason; once you know what you're doing, it it hard to want to go back...and especially to justify spending the kind of money if takes again.
