Excellent, but pricy
on January 30, 2009
This works very well with the Norelco Coolskin line (I use it with my 8060 model). Provides an excellent "glide" across your face, pretty much eliminates any irritation, and moisturizes to boot.
It is pricy, however, and I've found that if you take a few preparation steps you can use a lot less without sacrificing comfort. First wet your face (warm water) and lather up with a liquid soap (I use a store brand, but any brand of liquid soap will work). Don't rinse. Dunk the Coolskin in warm water and start shaving. If you feel the razor start to drag, dunk it again in warm water. Do a single pass over your face. Then, dispense the Nivia lotion, and make a second pass.
I end up hitting the dispenser button only once or twice per shave, so the bottle of Nivea lasts for months. The soap protects your face during the first pass, and the Nivea puts down a nice moisturizing layer on the second pass. And, it's a lot less messy than using shaving cream or foam.
Not sure if this will work for everyone, but I get a great shave, takes only 2-3 minutes, and my face is smooth and comfortable all day.
