Electric razors aren’t just a great suited Christmas gift. More and more men choose to shave with an electric razor because of the many benefits these products offer, when compared to other types of razors. Electric razors are easy to use, comfortable, fast, and with the latest generations, they clean and lubricate themselves. A growing majority of American households nowadays have at least one electric razor.
An objection I often hear from different men when it comes to electric razors is that the shave is not as close as with a regular blade. This is an aspect that depends on many variables, like how often you shave and what close means to you. Of course, it’s pretty hard to compare manual and electric razors but some of the best electric razors on the market get extremely close to manual razor blades. The Philips Norelco 1160x makes no exception from this. It is one of the closest shaves that I experienced with electric razors. It is very easy to use, due to the rotating heads that flex and twist to the curves of your face.
The Philips Norelco 1160x is easy to set up and requires an hour to charge fully. It comes with the cleaning solution included in the package. You will also find instructions that will help you to set everything up right. The cleaning system means that you will have to free up some counter space in order to store it conveniently and accessibly. Trust me, it’s worth it. Provided you put it into the cleaning system after you finish shaving, it will make sure that your razor is ready to go the next time you want to shave. The battery will last for over a dozen shaves, depending on how much time you need to shave.
Depending on your preferences, you can use it either wet or dry, with or without shaving cream, and the results will be equally great. Although being very quiet, the 1160x is very powerful. It has an ergonomically designed grip, making it easy to hold and handle. Every aspect feels like it was specifically designed by Philips, having in mind usability and convenience.
