More importantly, overall shaving performance was very good indeed. I felt like the bulk of it made the Panasonic less enjoyable to use, but I am pretty sure you’d get used to it, if it were your only shaver, rather than you were testing half a dozen of the buggers. Deploying an entirely ridiculous array of five blades, this is another wet–and-dry winner.

Once you’ve finished shaving, switch the razor off and disconnect the power cord . However, don’t expect spectacular performance as this is after all a very basic razor. On the chin and below the nose where my facial hair grows particularly thick, things could have been better though. Again, the use of a pre-shave improved the closeness, especially on my neck. It’s not by any means bad, but unlike with the comfort of the shave, the razor didn’t exceed my expectations. As a side note, I must also mention that it is among the quietest shavers I’ve ever used.

It didn’t provide a very close shave, but it was quite easy to clean and comfortable to use. Gillette’s new Planet KIND razor was a bit uncomfortable when we shaved with it. It didn’t glide across our face like the SkinGuard did, and it didn’t provide a remarkably close shave either. This razor and its blades are 100% recyclable through Terracycle, which is nice, but safety razor blades are also recyclable. So if you’re looking for an eco-friendly razor, we’d still recommend the Bevel Safety Razor.

This way it’s always ready for action, and also any house guests can see that you own the World’s Best and Most Expensive Razor. My face was left with some redness that faded within an hour or so. It wasn’t a huge deal for me, but I could see how that would really irk someone’s nerves. Especially if they shaved right before a date or business meeting. Rather than it being an innovative design that will positively change the future of razors, I think it’s an oddball design that doesn’t work very well.

Its guarded razor made shaving a breeze, and we experienced zero tugging or irritation when using it. Along with its durability, ease of cleaning and additional precision blade, it was easily the best men’s razor we tried. Brightup’s Beard Trimmer Grooming Kit comes with all the attachments necessary to shave pretty much anything.

For most people, foil-style electric razors typically provide a closer shave. But if you prefer a rotary-style shaver, we recommend the Philips Norelco Shaver 9300, which includes a cleaning system. The blades of rotary shavers are designed to catch hair growing in all directions, for a close shave.

These hairs have always been problematic for me when using electric shavers that require up and down movements. Let’s get one thing straight; this trimmer head will NOT replace your every-day beard trimmer.
