Philips Norelco 1150X46 Shaver 6100

 

As a modern, smart and fashionable gentleman, it is of the utmost importance to stay well groomed. We’re not cavemen anymore; the era of bushy beards and those arrogant mustaches are long gone. Sure, you may have all the latest straight razors in your bathroom, but there are times when you simply don’t have enough space to go all out with the cream and leather strops. This is where a handy electric shaver comes in to get the job done quick, safe and correctly. But not just any old shaver will do, we’re talking about the Philips Norelco 1150X/46 Shaver 6100.

This sleek and versatile Norelco shaver is designed to seamlessly handle the contours of your face thanks to the manufacturer’s clever incorporation of features. The Phillips 6100 utilizes the latest GyroFlex 2D contouring technology that allows the shaver to tilt inwards and pivot in a circular motion. This lets you easily curve the shaver for substantially minimized irritation and pressure. One feature that really stood out was the AquaTec seal that gives users the option of having a refreshing wet shave with gel or a convenient dry shave.

Philips Norelco 6945XL Electric Razor

Philips Norelco 6945XL Electric Razor

 

The Philips Norelco 6945XL Electric Razor provides users with the closeness, quality and classic electric shave convenience that we have all come to love and expect from the Norelco shaver. Starting off our review is the CloseCut heads shaving system that makes for one hell of a precise and highly accurate shave. Phillips wouldn’t let you strain your hands and wrists looking for a comfortable position to shave. This is precisely why they incorporate flexing heads that automatically adjust to every single contour and curvature of your face and neck to give you a smooth and stress-free shave.

Once you make a purchase and open the box, you can expect the following items in the box; a power cord, cleaning brush, manual, protective cap, and cordless razor. The protective cap will come in very handy for people looking to travel with their Norelco shaver, and since it has a worldwide voltage function of 100 to 240 volts, your international trips will never be the same again. Philips does, however, recommend that users replace their blades with new replacements after every 12 months.

Why Norelco Shaver?

For those of you who are new to the brand, Norelco is the American brand name for products and electric shavers as well as other personal care products manufactured by the Consumer Lifestyle Division of the globally renowned company; Phillips. Norelco is actually an acronym for North American Phillips Electrical Company. The fact that these guys have been in business since world war 2 means that they know their stuff. If you are ever looking to buy an electric shaver, make sure it is a Norelco shaver. Here are a few other reasons why you should go with Norelco:

  • Respected Brand

As with any other product out in the market, it still remains factual that you get what you paid for. If you go with cheaper and less recognized brands, do not be surprised if you get a substandard shaver that won’t make it past 3 shaves. Choosing a Phillips Norelco shaver gives customers the peace of mind they need to use their shavers effectively and with confidence. Just check out what reviews and people are saying about Norelco shavers and see just how satisfied the consumers are with their choice in a Norelco shaver.

  • 45 Day Money Back Guarantee

If you ever want to know just how confident a manufacturer is in their products, check to see how far their warranty extends as well as a money back guarantee. If you hear the phrase goods once sold are non-refundable and come with no warranties attached, then you know that something is definitely not right. Norelco shavers come with over 2 years warranty and very long periods that allow customers ample time to get their money back if they are not satisfied with the performance. Besides, it takes about a month for your hair and beard to get used to the new shaver; doesn’t it make sense to have a trial period that is longer than your stubble? Norelco shavers offer all this and much more as a show of confidence in their products.

Should You Buy an Electric Razor?

Here are some pretty compelling reasons why you should switch to an electrical razor.

  • Faster and Convenient Shave for Today’s Busy Man

One of the biggest advantages of using electric razors is the fact that they offer the quickest shave you will ever come across. Whether you are getting up in the morning or have some free time at work, nothing beats the speed and convenience of electric razors. Unlike straight razors that require you to set up shop with leather, foam, strops and quite the amount of shaving accessories, all you need with an electric shaver is the machine and your face. Since you only need about 5 minutes to get a full shave, you get some much-needed rest in the morning since you do not have to wake up and start boiling water and sharpening your razor.

  • Zero Electric Shaver Nicks and Cuts

While razors are definitely cheaper and more affordable to buy, it’s not wise to compromise your safety and appearance just to save a few bucks. Straight and safety razors have the highest probability of cutting and slicing through small bumps, zits, acne or moles on your face. Cutting yourself regularly not only makes it easy to form scars on your face, but it can also lead to severe health issues in the long run. It is true that any shaving method can be a challenge for sensitive skin; but no matter what your skin looks like, electric shavers are still the way to go. It is absolutely impossible to nick or graze yourself with electric razors since the manufacturers have taken all the measures to ensure no part of the blade is exposed.

  • Versatile Functionality

No matter what anyone says, electric shavers still offer the most versatile functionality over all other shaving methods. Even though lots of people still prefer a quick and convenient shave, manufacturers understand that the world is made up of different types of people. As such, most electric razors allow for both dry and wet shaves. The dry shave is when you use the electric razor alone to achieve a speedy and neat shave as quickly as possible. This works great for most, but why not take things to the next level if you do get the time? Wet shaves include adding shaving cream to your face and then using the electric razor to shave it all away. Wet shaves have the benefit of getting you a much closer shave as well as creating less irritation and razor bumps on your skin. This is definitely an added bonus if you have sensitive skin.

  • Sharing is Caring

Unlike straight and safety razors that require individual and personal ownership due to their nature, electric razors can be used by both you and your significant other. Women also need to shave their legs and make them smoother and prettier. However, previous methods such as double edged razors not only take so damn long, but they also put your partner’s legs in the line of fire. To ensure that your better half does not get nasty nicks and cuts on her legs (or spend hours in the shower when you really need to get to work) why not lend her your electric razor? It’s a win-win situation no matter which way you look at it.

Competition

While some of these shavers really stood out with their immense array of features that aim at making life better, others really impressed with their simplistic design and affordable prices.

For example, the Philips Norelco PT730/41 Shaver 3500 really covers all aspects that a customer needs.

And the best part is; if you are not happy with your unit, you get a 45-day money back guarantee and 2-year warranty. The Philips Norelco PT730/41 Shaver 3500 also incorporates a pop-up trimmer for the most detailed trimming you will ever get. This means your beard, sideburns, goatee and mustache can be shaped and styled much easily. After you’re done with your shave, all you have to do is hold the razor under running water thanks to the washable design.

However, there can only be one true champion here. And as always, our reviewers at the review haven look for products that are designed for performance and not price conscious. If you are truly looking for a Norelco shaver that is built to achieve perfection, then look no further than our champion; the Philips Norelco S9311/87, Shaver 9300.
