Worth every single penny - a REVOLUTION,
Like many, I've been pondering over buying an electric razor for the last year or more. Having never had one before I simply chose the RQ1250 because of its consistent excellent reviews and the price Amazon were selling it for.
Before now I've wet shaved for 20 years, and have loathed wet shaving for the same duration. My problem is that ideally I should shave on a daily basis, however, for me to try and shave each morning is not only time consuming but it leaves me with cuts and soreness for the rest of the morning. This is partly down to the fact my beard grows oddly and to make it worth while I shave against the beard (otherwise I may as well not bother).
I've had this Philips shaver for a few weeks now and absolutely love it. Make no mistake, it's not as close as a wet shave, but ...... BUT, it means each morning I can spend a mere 5 mins shaving and it looks more than acceptable and in my case look OK still at tea time.
This is all I wanted, I wasn't looking for a closer shaving result, just a tool that can tidy up the beard both day and night. That's right, on occasions I'm out for a meal in the evening - I just go over the beard again and it looks great. Lastly, using this shaver with Gillette fusion shaving gel just adds to the pleasurable experience.
Buy it - take the plunge if your considering it. You may never look back !!
