I think I first got this trimmer when I was around 16-- so 8 years ago. I've used it regularly ever since.
A word to the wise-- it's not super sturdy. If you, like me, tend to be a little rough and thoughtless with your things, you'll probably break it the first time (like I did) and have to get a new one. I think my first one lasted about a year, maybe two, before the on switch stopped working completely and the battery compartment wouldn't stay closed. Thankfully, for the price, getting a new one wasn't a hardship. And I've been much gentler with this one-- no more banging it around, tossing it on the counter, or letting it shake around in a bag full of stuff. It's still going strong, and I've had it since before I left for college in 2014.
While my facial hair is very fair and fine, it tends to grow rather long for a woman, and it's very.... glinty. Almost metallic, so in the right light my face goes from looking completely hairless to radiantly fuzzy. I also have a mole on my cheek that has a few darker, thicker hairs growing out of it. This easily takes care of all of that. It's a gentle electric shaver, so don't expect it to get your face baby-smooth-- if you want that, you need to try dermaplaning or waxing. For purely aesthetic purposes, this works just fine, however. Because my hair is so light, I can't say for certain what the effect would be if you had thicker, darker facial hair. Based on my use of it on some of the stray dark hairs from my eyebrows, my guess is that you would be left with some visible stubble. For fair-haired people, this is amazing.
I've never used any of the attachment heads, so I can't speak to their effectiveness, but the plain old shaver does its job handily.
