Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've always been a Philips man and have always used rotary shavers but thought I'd give this a try on the advice of my father who always uses foil shavers. It was a bit of a different feeling at first having been so used to rotary shaving all these years but I'm slowly getting used to the way this shaves. I like the way the the foil heads are all independent and adapt to the contours of your face.
By and large it gives a decent enough shave but I don't think it's quite as good as my Philips. It's difficult to tell at first but throughout the day you notice it more and more, particularly towards the end of a working day when you look in the mirror. I like the idea of using it in the shower too as I prefer being able to use my electric shavers with some sort of gel as I find a dry shave can burn and irritate my skin. So hats off to that feature and the fact that the shaver is easy to clean.
Overall a decent shaver but I do feel that it doesn't give quite as close a shave as I would have liked, but everyone's different I guess.
