About Finishing Touch Flawless Legs
Advertised as the new gold standard for instant, painless hair removal, Finishing Touch Flawless Legs is a rechargeable device that provides four times more coverage than razors, without the hassle of shaving with soap or water.
This way, the manufacturer tells us that the device can be used anywhere, while its hypoallergenic 18K gold-plated floating heads are safe for all skin types and contour to your every curve, including delicate areas around the ankles and knees. It also features built-in LED lights to make it easier to see and a palm-perfect design for better control.
Regardless of your age, shaving your body can be a time-intensive—and at times, painful—process. But can you really expect Finishing Touch Flawless Legs to deliver the closeness of a razor, but without nicks, cuts, or irritation? That’s the main questions we’ll help you answer here.
How Does Finishing Touch Flawless Legs Work?
If you’re in the market for an over-the-counter device that removes hair, there are really only three classifications: razors, epilators, and lasers.
Lasers use specific wavelengths of light to destroy follicles, epilators quickly pull hairs from the root (which is why they’re often referred to as ‘electric tweezers’), and razor blades lift hairs up from the follicle and then cut them very close to the skin.
Circular rotary electric razors like Flawless Legs use small perforations to lift hair and spinning blades that also cut close to the skin. But because they all have the ability to flex independently of one another, they’re able to trace the contours of your body much better.
This is compared to foil razors, which use a thin, curved metal foil to cover their cutting blades and lift hairs, which LifeHack reports can be ideal for “moving in a straight, long back-and-forth movement over the face and neck.”

What’s the gold good for? While the manufacturer didn’t specify on the website or in the commercial, other than adding good looks, gold is naturally a naturally antimicrobial metal (known as the oligodynamic effect) that can potentially help keep your Flawless Legs device free of bacteria.
Are there any other devices quite like it? First, we need to discuss price.
How Much Does Flawless Legs by Finishing Touch Cost?
Flawless Legs is priced at two payments of $29.99 plus $7.99 S&H, or a single payment of $59.98 plus free shipping.
Regardless of the payment option you choose, all devices come with a 30-day money back guarantee, less S&H. In order to request one, support can be reached at 844-764-4363. Note: When we attempted to call, this number was not in service.
Finishing Touch Flawless Legs vs. Other Women’s Electric Razors
Together, browsing online and at local retailers, customers have access to perhaps hundreds of different women’s specific electric razors, including models from household names like Braun, Philips, Remington, and Schick. Even if you’re only in the market for rotary devices, the number of options can still be overwhelming— especially considering you can pay anywhere between $20 and $130 for one.
With this in mind, we didn’t encounter anything exactly like Flawless Legs during our research. So if this is a must-have for you, it’s currently the only game in town.
We did encounter a similarly designed device named Butterfly Pro by Skull Shaver, which features three to five rotary razors (depending on model), a palm-grip design, cord-free operation, and rechargeability. However, they didn’t include an LED like Flawless Legs.
How to choose?
Personal grooming products are just that—personal. Ultimately, this means the best choice is going to hinge on your specific needs, such as the body part(s) you’ll most often use it on, if you also need to use it in the shower, whether portability or number of features are most important, and so forth.
Once you’ve discerned your basic needs for an electric razor and narrowed your choices down to a handful of options, Consumer Reports recommends asking questions like:
- What kind of battery does it feature?
- How long will it operate on a single charge? How long will it take to recharge?
- Are there any special features, such as automatic shutoff, low power indicator, wet/dry operation, an LCD interface
- Can the individual razors be cleaned? If so, is it easy? Does it have to be cleaned every day, or only periodically?
When looking at Flawless Legs through this lens, how does the device measure up?
The Bottom Line About Finishing Touch Flawless Legs
While their phone number wasn’t in service (as mentioned earlier), we sent an email to their service department at firstname.lastname@example.org, which included the questions above, and currently, haven’t heard back.
But, we do know that Flawless Legs is manufactured by Idea Village, a large As Seen on TV company who’s brought many popular products to market, including others in the Finishing Touch lineup like Yes!, Flawless, Flawless GLO, and Freedom. In fact, it appears that Flawless Legs features the same gold rotary razors used in the Flawless model.
The company held an A+ Better Business Bureau rating, based on four customer reviews and just over 100 closed complaints, as of 9/22/17. Most of these appeared to revolve around less-than-stellar customer support experiences (usually related to difficulty processing refunds), as well as lower product quality than expected. In each instance, a representative responded with a solution.
Idea Village also stands behind Flawless Legs with a 30-day refund policy, which should be more than enough time to figure out if the device—which is the only one we found to combine four independent rotary razors, a built-in LED for illumination, and 18K gold plating for antimicrobial protection—is right for you.
Does this uniqueness necessarily mean that it’s the “fastest, easiest pain-free way to get smooth, flawless legs," as claimed on the website? We didn't test the device ourselves to provide any firsthand feedback, although, with a total of four heads, it seems reasonable that it could provide more coverage than other options with fewer heads.
Just keep in mind that if you decide to request a refund for your Finishing Touch Flawless Legs, you’ll lose your initial S&H charges (if you opted for the two-payment option), as well as whatever it’ll cost to ship it back to the company.
