If you don’t like using foil shavers Norelco makes one helluva rotary shaver. They are now introducing the 3D line and with that came four different variations of this model, which are the 1250x/42, 1280x/42, 1290x/40 and lastly the 1250x/40 that this article is reviewing about.
What’s so special about the Norelco 3D
There are quite a few reasons that make the Philips Norelco sensotouch 3d one of the top contenders but let’s be more specific and talk about one of their many attributes that are very appealing.
Let’s start with the GyroFlex 3d Contouring system, shall we? The contouring system is made up of 3 independent parts that tilt inward, flex outward and pivot around and this is what we would call their GyroFlex 3D system.
It’s geared toward giving you the most comfortable shave with little to no skin irritations by making the shaver shave without much pressure onto the skin.
Super Lift and Cut
The Super Lift & cut system wins the battle of the flat-lying hairs that are challenging to cut and control for so many people. This system will not only cut those flat-lying hairs below your facial baseline but with no discomfort as well.
Ergonomically correct with its anti-slip grip makes this shaver easy to use, which results in a nice, effortless shave. No more worrying about it slipping out of your hands in the shower and hitting that hard tile. The ergonomic design helps you to achieve an amazing shaving experience with more control.
This model will only charge with its charging stand and it provides you with 50-minutes of continuous use. It shows a 3 tier battery indicator letting know when you’re going to need another charge up.
If you want a shaver that let’s you shave while plugged in and in the charging mode then look at the Braun 7 Series. The Braun 7 charges from outlet —-> cord —> shaver.
If you only dry shave then you really only need to clean your shaver every 2 to 3 uses, but if your shaving routine includes that of messy gels and foams then it’s recommended that you clean the shaver after each and every use.
When dry shaving, just open the three shaving heads and run in under your faucet then leave the heads open to air dry, fully.
If it weren’t for the burning, breakouts, and skin redness more men would stick with using their manual shavers because of the closeness the shave delivers and an electric shaver just can’t compete with; however, men are learning to deal with a little leftover stubble to have their faces feeling soft and smooth without looking like a teenage boy experimenting with his father’s razors.
Rotary shavers are ideal for those suffering with sensitive skin and the SensoTouch 3D leaves you with a fresh, clean, and comfortable shave.
I do like this shaver and the only thing I would change is the length of the charge. Knowing that most other shavers provide you with 60-minutes I think Philips Norelco can achieve the same results with a little bit more tweaking. All in all, very fine shaver, indeed.
