I'm a soldier serving in Afghanistan right now and I was using a blade until I purchased this electric razor, due to the fact that shaving 7 days a week with the fushion was tearing my face up. This razor combined with the nivea gel produces a very close and comfortable shave. The size of this razor is great too, being in the military and on the go this fits perfectly in my small hygene bag. It actually feels just as close as shaving with a blade, and I don't think I will ever go back to using a blade ever again. Do not attempt to use this razor dry. It does require a little more maintenance than a dry razor but nothing that takes over 30 seconds. After you shave with it you want to make sure you rinse of the head and get the gel out of the nossels to prevent clogging. The only thing some what negative I would say is don't buy this as a kit, you may seem you are saving money but it's actually cheaper to buy everything seperate. The nivea they provided in the kit only lasted me 2.5 weeks.
Bought this for my husband 5 years ago and will buy the new model for him for his next birthday. Just bought the newest model for my son and he says "Never got such a smooth shave from an electric razor".
I like this razor a lot ,It 's the smoothest most comfortable shaver I have ever used,and with the lotion is a real plus. The battery life is great with a good warning light when it needs recharging. This razor came as a kit with lotion and extra head.It is water proof and can be used in the shower which is a great time saver. I would recommend it to anyone. Cons: None
