I have shaved with a razor for nearly 40 years. I’ve seen razors go from single blade to twin blade to triple blade, and even more. Every year the blades get more ridiculous in price. Considering the price of my triple blade razors, I decided to try an electric shaver. I was really surprised to find a highly rated shaver that cost less than a pack of my triple blades. But with the Panasonic name on it, I had to give it a try.
I not only shave my face, I shave my entire head, except for my goatee and eyebrows. So this little shaver gets a good workout. And I’m used to baby smooth shaves. I shave against the grain, so I leave no stubble at all. The directions with this shaver tell former blade users to use the shaver a while, and let your skin get used to the cut. And they’re right. Not only does the skin take a little time to adjust from a blade shave to a razor shave, you have to learn about which angle cuts best, and how much pressure to use while shaving.
The results after one month; I get a shave very comparable to my triple blade razor, in about the same amount of time. The battery has lasted for the entire month, with nearly every day use. Cleaning takes a couple of minutes with the enclosed brush. I have not tried using the shaver ‘wet’, although it is said to be a ‘wet/dry’ shaver. I prefer to keep mine dry. I have fairly oily skin, and I don’t wash my face before shaving. I feel the natural skin oils are a good lubricant.
The Panasonic ES3831K Pro Curve Wet/Dry Travel Shaver handles all your shaving needs in a small, compact package that is easy to carry with you, so you can shave in the morning and touch up during the day whenever you need to.
