Panasonic ES-LA93-K Arc4 Men’s Electric Shaver Wet/Dry with Multi-Flex Pivoting Head and Automatic Cleaning System

Solid shaver

I used Brauns prior to this purchase and liked most of them. However, by comparison the motor on this Panasonic is much more powerful. Because I have a coarse facial hair, that’s a big plus. The Panasonic is a bit larger to hold in your hand and a tad more cumbersome to navigate around the upper lip but not a deal breaker. The LED display gives you charge status. The cleaning station seems to work well. The shaver runs for quite a few days on a single charge.

One negative. If you run the charge down to empty and plug the shaver in using the cord, the unit doesn’t operate. You have to wait until it has been recharged a bit before using it again.

Overall, I highly recommend it.

Along with the Multi-Flex active head, the shaver glides uniformly along the contours of the face and covering the chin, jaw line and sideburns while providing maximum comfort. The world’s fastest 14,000 CPM linear motor eliminates tugging and pulling that can occur with slower shavers. This electric razor maintains peak power right up to the end of the charge, to ensure a consistently close shave. When the shaver’s Lithium-Ion battery needs recharging, simply insert the shaver into the automatic cleaning and charging system for a clean, renewed shave. ES-LA93-K men’s electric four-blade (Arc 4) shaving system comes equipped with a travel pouch, a 10-stage LCD display, a travel lock switch, and a pop-up trimmer.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between wet and dry shaving?

Wet shaving involves the use of your choice of shaving lather, whereas a dry shave is done without lather for a quick clean-up anywhere. For a wet shave at home or a quick, dry shave on-the-go, the ES-LA63-S will provide you with the same smooth, clean, yet gentle shave that you need.

Is the ES-LA63-S waterproof?

Yes, the ES-LA63-S is watertight and can be immersed in water without damage. It is safe to use in the shower and is cleaned by rinsing the shaver under running water.

I’m new to electric shavers. Is skin irritation after use common?

Your Panasonic wet/dry shaver requires a little time to get used to because your skin and beard need about a month to adjust to any new shaving method. Treat yourself to wet lather shaves for at least three weeks and notice the difference.
