Too much work to shave.

Adam S., Newegg

  • Summary: Didn't work on my wife's legs either.
  • Pros: Looks nifty. Charging base, lotion dispense work well.
  • Cons: Doesn't shave well. Requires a lot of pressure, and misses a lot. Takes a long time to get a solid shave.

OK.... But a poor replacement for the original

  • Summary: Wow, this was a disappointment. I've used an older Nivea model for 7 years, and it was fantastic. I love being able to shave dry, or squirt out a little lotion and shave wet. But this razor is a pretty poor "advancement" in Norelco evolution. While small and pretty durable, the shaving head now lacks the ability to go concave, so it misses a lot, and the harder you push, the worse the shave (unintuitively.
  • Pros: Shaves some of your facial hair, shaving gel is nice, though a little greasy. Compact and portable. Newegg shipping is fast and always a treat.
  • Cons: Doesn't come with protective case. Produces a poor shave. No hair collector, so leaves facial hair all over the place. Leaves much to be desired in the "clean shaven" department. That is, of course, the point of these things... The 2-egg rating is because it shaves, but does so poorly. Shop around, or go for a lower priced non-lotion Norelco, it will be worth your while.
