About Micro Touch Tough Blade

Endorsed by Brett Favre, Micro Touch Tough Blade is a German-engineered razor that’s guaranteed to give you the close, clean, comfortable shave you want for an entire year, at a much lower price than the competition.

In order to accomplish this, the Micro Touch Tough Blade is claimed to combine 3 perfectly angled German stainless steel blades with a micro thin non-stick surface. This way, the first blade will work to lift, the second blade to cut, and the third to finish for a perfect shave. The Micro Touch Tough Blade is even claimed to shave comfortably at any angle, and to be great for sensitive skin.

As a man, you understand how expensive replacement razors can be, and are always looking for something to simplify your daily routine, so the Micro Touch Tough Blade is definitely a compelling concept. Now, you’re here on HighYa to find out if it’s worth your hard earned money. So is it? Consider the following before placing your order:

What You’ll Get with Your Micro Touch Tough Blade Order

Based on the product’s name alone, you could be forgiven for thinking that the Micro Touch Tough Blade is a single razor cartridge that lasts up to a year. However, the truth is that the Micro Touch Tough Blade is a complete system that’s made up of 3 (or 4) parts:

  • The Micro Touch Tough Blade handle
  • 12 replacement razor cartridges, which attach directly to the handle when it’s time to replace
  • The MicroTouch Trimmer
  • Stand (optional – more about this in a moment)

In other words, what you’ll be receiving with your Micro Touch Tough Blade order is not some revolutionary product that lasts 12 times longer than the competition. It’s simply a handle and replacement razors, similar to what you’d find with subscription razor clubs such as 800Razors.com, Dollar Shave Club, and ShaveMOB.

Is There Anything Unique About Micro Touch Tough Blade?

According to the product’s commercial, the Micro Touch Tough Blade’s 3-tiered razors are claimed to lift, cut, and finish for a perfect shave each and every time. However, this works identically to 3-blade razors from any other manufacturer, so there doesn’t appear to be anything unique from this perspective. Also, although Micro Touch Tough Blade is claimed to be made from German stainless steel, outside of golf clubs, there doesn’t appear to be anything that is distinct about stainless steel manufactured in Germany.

On the other hand, if Micro Touch Tough Blade’s razors work as well as mainstream manufacturers but at a much less expensive price, this may be noteworthy in and of itself.

Will the Micro Touch Tough Blade Really Last a Year?

Since the Micro Touch Tough Blade system comes with 12 replacement razor cartridges, assuming you use one cartridge per month, it will last you a total of 12 months. However, if you’ve been shaving for any length of time, you know that how long a razor lasts depends on a wide variety of factors, including how often you shave, the coverage of your facial hair, the coarseness of your stubble, and more. As such, a razor cartridge may comfortably last 2-3 weeks for one person, while lasting less than a week for another.

Clearly, another primary factor related to how long a razor lasts is its quality, although without knowing where these razors are sourced from, it’s impossible to know how this relates to Micro Touch Tough Blade. Micro Touch Tough Blade is also a very new product, so there were no online customer reviews available at the time of our research to gauge overall satisfaction levels.

Micro Touch Tough Blade’s Manufacturer

Even though there weren’t any online consumer reviews for Micro Touch Tough Blade, we did learn that it’s manufactured by Idea Village, an up-and-coming player in the ASOTV industry. This company also makes many other popular “As Seen on TV” products, including Yes! by Finishing Touch, HD Vision Visor, Yoshi Grill and Bake, and the Micro One Touch Razor.

Among dozens of HighYa reader reviews for these products, they have an average rating of 2.5 stars, with the most common complaint referencing poor quality products that don’t work as advertised—specifically, that their razors are thin, provide an uneven shave, and have a tendency to cut. The second most common complaint appears to reference the company’s poor customer service; and in some instances, very poor. This includes:

  • Orders being placed without the customer’s permission.
  • Difficulty cancelling orders after they’ve been placed, but before they’ve been shipped.
  • Receiving unwanted items in orders and being charged accordingly.
  • Difficulty obtaining refunds.

Granted, this doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll experience the same with Micro Touch Tough Blade.

As a company, Idea Village holds an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, despite having 150 closed complaints (as of 12/17/14), many of which reference the concerns noted above.

Beware the Legal Beagle

Finally, keep in mind that placing an order on the Micro Touch Tough Blade website will automatically bind you to an arbitration agreement, which means that you’ll be waiving your right to a jury trial or to becoming part of a class action lawsuit.

Micro Touch Tough Blade Pricing & Refund Policy

The Micro Touch Tough Blade is priced at $19.99 plus $7.99 S&H. You’ll also be able to purchase the Deluxe model for an additional $9.99, which includes a stand, 6 additional cartridges, and a 2-year warranty. Ultimately, this will bring your total to $37.97.

Whichever model you choose, you’ll also receive a bonus MicroTouch Trimmer for precise grooming around nose, eyebrows, neck, and sideburns.

Micro Touch Tough Blade comes with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges. In order to request a refund, you’ll need to contact customer service at 877-833-7685.

Can Micro Touch Tough Blade Make Life Easier & Save You Money?

Chopping to the Point: While $20 for 12 razors certainly sounds like a deal, the value you’ll receive depends on numerous factors, including the quality of the razors and how often they’ll be used. Is it possible to get this many razors at such an inexpensive price? Clearly. Is it reasonable to assume that they’ll be of high quality? Perhaps not.

And while it’s positive that Micro Touch Tough Blade comes with a 30-day refund policy, by the time you ship your razors back to the manufacturer, you could be out $10 or more just for giving the product a try. With this in mind, because the company’s other product, the Micro Touch One Razor, is currently available through brick-and-mortar retailers such as Walmart and Target, you might want to wait until this occurs with the Micro Touch Tough Blade as well.

    Worked very well for me

    I have used electric razors almost all my life and only use regular razors if my electric is broken. In this case, I was in CVS and saw it in their As Seen On TV section and couldn't resist since I had seen the commercial so many times.

    In my prior shaving attempts in years gone by I have a tendency to cut myself. With the movable head and the 3 blades, I didn't have any problem shaving without cutting. Also, I tend to shave infrequently now, and with my beard hair going white, it can be difficult to cut when it is longer with the electric razor. This razor didn't have any problem with 4 or 5 days growth.

    I have only used it once, but it seems like a good razor so far.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Not entirely true

    • Sidney, NY,
    • Oct 19, 2016

    I had purchased this 1 year ago and do have to say that the facts they state are untrue. They claim a perfect shave? The razor doesn't get the fine hairs of a beard. There's always stubble after shaving I have found.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

  • The worst

    Absolutely the worst excuse for a razor I have ever tried to use. Barely able to get 1 shave out of a cartridge. Brett Favre should be ashamed of himself for promoting this crap.

    Shaves not that great!

    It's not made in the USA. Don't buy since they don't stand by their product. My razor handle piece broke and they would not replace it and I spent over $37 on the order! Rip-offs, pure and simple.

    Very Satisfied

    I like it very much. I have tried and used many razors and none have satisfied me. The MicroTouch Tough Blade is the first Razor I ever had that I am really satisfied with. Purchased it at Walmart for $19.95. Someone wrote that the cartridge falls off sometimes. This is true, but it doesn't change my satisfaction with it because this also happened with all of the brand name razors that I purchased off the shelf. I've been using it for a little over one month now. I'm still using the first cartridge. I use it sometimes daily and sometimes every other day. I clean it and sharpen it after every shave. I have not cut myself once so far. I have cut myself with every other razor that I've ever used. I'm so glad that I made the decision to try it.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Cheap quality

    Save your $20 + tax and shipping. You get much better shave from Gillette throw away razors that last much longer. Blades last about 2 weeks before they start tugging and cutting because they are already dull. Excellent marketing scheme though.

    Excellent Customer Service

    The handle broke and customer service said the would send me a new "handle". Low and behold I received a complete new product. Handle, blades, and electric trimmer. Wow.

    No good lame shaver.

    • Michigan,
    • Jun 14, 2016

    Not a good shave at all. I had to go over areas already shaved. I'll stick to the old disposable. Bought it at Bed Bath & Beyond and used the razor for a month and the blade holder on the razor broke. The handle is heavy metal with prongs about the size of a pencil lead that hold each end of the blade. Drop the razor and kiss your eleven other new blades goodbye. This is unless because you spend $20 another handle. Don't drop that one or you'll eat two years worth of mediocre blades. I called the online sales number and they can only help online orders. The sales rep suggested I just buy another. No thank you.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Cheap product, do not buy.

    • Michigan,
    • Apr 19, 2016

    This product does not shave your face very well, very "blocky" requiring shaving many areas multiple times to get a good shave.

    Handle is not well made and will break at the blade handle attachment connection. If you want a one time 20 shaver this is what you get, but it won't last a year like the promote.

    Does not live up to its advertisement.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    How can I reach you?

    Well you took my money. Where is my razor? Is this a rip off -- why can't I get a phone number or an answer to where my razor is?
