My husband had been looking for the best electric shaver. He’d been using his old one for years, but it just wasn’t functioning as well as it used to. He complained that it was tugging on his whiskers, which was causing redness and irritation. Since he was up for a promotion, he wanted to look his best for work. It was time to toss the old one in the trash, and search online for the best electric shaver. My husband settled on the Philips Norelco. He waited for it to arrive in the mail. The test would be whether he had made the right decision from reading online the Philips Norelco 1160X/42 SensoTouch 2D Review.
The Philips Norelco 1160X/42 is a rotary style cordless shaver. It has a dark black and blue casing, with orange stripes. The Norelco was pretty affordable at around $119, particularly since it comes with its own charging and cleaning unit. Usually comparable types are over $200. The Philips Norelco features patented technology. Its two-dimensional contouring system allows you to shave around every angle and edge of your face smoothly and quickly. The rotary style blades provide a smooth flat surface to move against your skin. This shaver is suitable for all types of skin. You can use the Philips Norelco wet or dry. If you prefer to shave in the shower its Aquatec casing will protect the insides. You can also shave with soap, lotion, foams, and gels, as it’s fully washable. The shaver has a non-slip grip handle, so you won’t drop your shaver in the sink or shower. In the box is also a Jet Clean system which you can use about once every two weeks. You simply place the shaver in the stand, and it will automatically clean, lubricate, and dry your shaver. After those functions are done, it will charge it up, and be ready to go for the next day. One full charge will last for fifty minutes of shaving time. This adds up to about seventeen shaves, which is plenty for a couple of week’s time. An included precision trimmer will enable you to accurately trim around sideburns, mustache, and beard. This electric shaver is the best for travel as you can adjust the voltage from 100 volts to 240 volts. Don’t forget to bring plug converters though, so it will fit international outlets. For trips of less than two weeks you won’t need to worry about it. Philips backs its electric shavers with a two year manufacturer’s warranty.
Overall, my husband enjoys his Philips Norelco 1160X/42, and likes it very much. He felt the online shopping experience made purchasing an easy decision. Often when you’re in a brick and mortar store you’re forced to buy immediately, or to walk away. With online shopping you can carefully evaluate each brand and model. Now that my husband is enjoying his new Philips Norelco, I may check out what they have for the ladies.
