Philips Norelco 1250X/46 SensoTouch 3D Electric RazorThere are a lot of men out there that prefer a good wet shave but we know sometimes you need something on the run and don’t want to fuss with it.  There are so many electric shavers on the market and we want to touch on what we feel are some of the best on the market.  Now the two top companies you will see out there are Norelco and Braun.  You will see that Braun has more of a variety in foil shavers, Norelco specializes in the rotary department which seems to give the better shave of the two.  We know everyone has a budget and may not be able to swing a hefty price tag.  Foil shavers tend to be a little more budget friendly but we will look at what you get out of a good rotary shaver.

Pulling the Norelco SensoTouch out of the packing I already have respect for its sleek design and 3 rotary head.  It feels like a well-constructed machine that is made from quality parts.  The grip handle is solid and is ergonomically designed to help you reach any spot of your face with ease.  Now the rotary head has Gyroflex 3D contour-following system which includes three dynamic parts.  Sounds sexy!  The three dynamic parts to this shaver include an independent flex outward, a tilt inward, and a pivot around to trim facial hair before it even grows on your face.  All jokes aside this is a fantastic shaver that really does get the hard to reach places of a man’s face.

Features of the Norelco SensoTouch 3D

Philips Norelco 1250X/46 SensoTouch 3D Electric RazorNow one thing that I can stand is an electric razor/shaver that grabs or pulls my facial hair.  I have put the SensoTouch to the test, shaving wet and dry and I have had a clean shave and smooth skin with no reports of pulling.  I have a more narrow jaw and the electric shaver got every last hair on my face.  I haven’t had this good of a shave in a while which puts a big smile on my face.  I really am enjoying the rotary heads and the special tracking that trims different length facial hair.  How this works is it starts by trimming the longer hair first and moves to the sorter reducing any cuts or nicks.

Another key point that I look for when purchasing an electronic shaver is it must have easy cleanup.  The SensoTouch nails it on this.  If you shave regularly all that is required is just rinsing out the hair with some water.  If you need to disassemble the Norelco, you just have to remove a couple parts and wipe off the excess hair.  In less than a minutes time, you will be done with the clean up process.  If you are on the go you will appreciate the ease of transport coming with a carrying bag.  Here is what else the Norelco includes:

  • To help simplify your shopping experience, we recently updated this product’s packaging and name: The SensoTouch 3D 1250X/40 is now called Series 8000, Shaver 8100. During the transition, you may receive the  product in either old or new packaging.
  • Gyroflex 3D contour-following system has three dynamic parts that independently flex outward, pivot around, and tilt inward to follow the natural contours of your face.
  • UltraTrack heads cover 50% more skin surface with  three shaving tracks that catch every hair.
  • Aquatec technology allows you to shave wet with gel or foam for extra skin protection or dry for convenience.
  • Pop-out trimmer is ideal for sideburns and moustache.

Once drawback I can hear a lot of men gripe about is price being that this is almost 180 dollars.  I bit the bullet and am a firm believer that you get what you pay for.  The SensoTouch so far has proved this for me.  It’s super convenient and lets you shave with gel or foam and has a pop out trimmer.

The SensoTouch 3D is fast charging only taking about an hour to charge and will last for about an hour of shave time or roughly 17 days.  Not bad for the included lithium-ion battery and a power display.  It will even let you know when you need to replace the blades.

Is the Philips Norelco SensoTouch for you?

With so many features I can’t deny that this is probably one of the best shavers on the market.  It even has attachments available to turn the head into a barber-style razor.  It looks sexy as hell and is a great accessory to take with you on the road.  If you can pony up the dough we recommend clicking the link below.
