The closest shave you'll get without a wet shave razor...,

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is possibly the most expensive electrioc foil shaver money can buy. It is definetly a quality build, feels strong and robust. It includes a Sensoflex dynamic shaving head (which reacts to changes in the skins surface).
I've been a wet shave person, mainly sticking to the Gillete brand due to the closeness of the shave, but as always with razors some of us folks are susceptible to shaving rash.
It's been 2 weeks I've been using this product and I will admit, my shaving rash is now a thing of the past. I must point out, obviously it isn't ever going to compare to a wet close shave, but it comes damn close. I've had a panasonic foil shaver and the Philips shaver in the past and this is probably the best of the bunch in terms of shave.
The design is excellent, well thought out and implemented to give great performance and comfort. The foils are brilliant, they cut close and effortlessly. It also hase an LCD panel and an extendable trimmer for moustache and sideburns. The battery is excellent, when compared to other electric shavers an hour charge gives you roughly 55 minutes of usage and if the battery dies you can still run it off the mains. The shaver is cleaned and charged at the same time which keeps the blades clean and in hygienic condition.
It definetly looks like the business in my bathroom sitting elegantly. Even the missus likes the look of it. Although, the kids think it is some kind of high-tech toy to play with.
The only downside is the noise, as a sonic shaver it is loud, but you forget this fine point after a few days use. Simply put it's the best electric razor I've used and I've used many.
I only gave it 4 stars manily due to the fact it will not compare to a close wet shave. But, for everyday use it's brilliant, you simply can't go wrong with it. In this case the price tag justifies the quality and this product is definetly "top quality".
I do feel this would work out cheaper than razors as a pack of 5 gillete fusion is roughly £7 it'll last me a month or so which would roughly be £70 a year. The foil system last 18 months and a replacement costing around £20. So, on average it would work out cheaper.
