Many men have extra-sensitive skin. Even an electric shaver can leave their skin feeling sore and itchy, despite the use of lotions and creams. Philips has provided a solution with the Philips Norelco 7300, made specifically for sensitive skin. Women may even try to borrow this one, as it has some great features. The Norelco 7300 comes in an attractive teal blue body with white plastic sides. There is also a separate black cleaning and charging station.
This shaver is rotary style, and even the three rotary heads look different. Each head is outlined by a matching teal blue ring. Other great features include an anti-friction microbead coating on the rotary heads to enable for smoother gliding. The blades built within the circular heads are built to protect the skin, but to still provide a smooth close trim. These comfort rings allow the rotary head to glide more smoothly over the skin.
Philips has its patented AquaTec technology that means that each shaver is built to be 100% waterproof. This shaver can be used wet or dry, but men with sensitive skin will want to choose the best shaving gels or foams, perhaps something fragrance-free and natural to lubricate their skin. Take it into the shower with you, rinse it off, use under the faucet, etc. It’ll also provide a great shave when used dry or on the go if you’re travelling.
The head of the shaver pivots and moves in all directions with DynamicFlex technology. It moves the head in five different directions, so it moves with the curves on your face, and not against them.
On the front of the shaver is an LED display panel which will tell you how much of a charge you have left in the shaver, and whether it’s time to place into the cleaning and charging unit. At that point, you place it head down into the unit and press the button. It does all the work for you: cleaning, lubricating, drying, and charging.
One full charge should give you about one week’s worth of shaving time.
This shaver also has a SmartClick precision hair trimmer which attaches to the shaver, and is useful for shaving mustache and sideburns. It can be safely stowed in the travel pouch when not in use.
The Philips Norelco 7300 is affordable, at around $190, which includes the whole kit of shaver and cleaning unit. There is also one cleaning cartridge to get you started, the precision trimmer, a power cord, and a travel case.
If your skin is exceptionally sensitive, try one of the men’s electric shavers made specifically for your skin such as the Philips Norelco Shaver 7300. You’ll want to avoid any shaver brand under $100, and get one that’s made specifically for sensitive skin like the Philips Norelco 7300. Combined with a trusted name brand such as Philips, you’ll leave the house in the morning looking well-groomed, and not like you just underwent a battle with your cat.
