James's usual razor choice is a Gilette ProGlide, which had impressed him since switching from his standard razors some time ago. The biggest problem with these sorts of razors though is the cost of blades. If you're using the razors regularly then the constant blade-buying can leave a dent in your bank balance. This to some extent justifies investing in a premium shaver, if you use it regularly you will eventually make back your money.
When I asked James at the end of the week he told me that the shaver had 'changed his life', by making it quick and easy to stay clean shaven. He used it before bed each evening, instead of in the morning... who wants to spend less time in bed in the morning! But if he did need to use it in the morning it wouldn't have taken long at all.
James says: "The shaver seems to follow the contours of your face really well, better than any other shaver I've tried. Although I would say the shave isn't as close as a razor, it's definitely the closest shave of any shaver I've used before. I usually just finish off with a razor when I want a really close shave, but I can definitely get away with not doing that when time is short.The claim that there's no irritation is justified too."
James tested out the shaver as a dry shave and hasn't yet foamed up to try the wet shave function, although you can also use it in this way depending on what you prefer.
If you do a job which requires you to be clean shaven all the day, then this electric shaver would be a great buy. Yes the price tag is pretty hefty, but shop around and you can get some good deals. John Lewis are currently selling the shaver for £199.99 and it's got over 4.6 stars out of 5 from the website's reviewers.
