Philips Norelco 1150x/40 SensoTouch 2d Electric Shaver
By using GyroFlex 2D science, the Philips Norelco 1150X/40 SensoTouch offers a far better shaving experience all while standing at 6.2” x 1.2” x 1.2”. Packed with features and driven by a lithuium-ion battery for wireless, transportable operation, this shaver will turn your routine wet or dry shaving into a more pleasurable experience. For anyone that finds themselves on the go, like me, the SensoTouch allows you to enjoy the ease of having a smooth shave at home or on the road. Charging the SensoTouch for an hour will allow you to shave for about 40 minutes, which totals out to be about 14 shaves. Alternatively, a quick-charge option gives you enough power to shave once. You’ll always know when it’s time to charge your battery with the bi-level battery display. This display will let you know when the battery is full and gives off a warning when you need to recharge.

The GyroFlex 2D system is continually readjusting itself to handle the contours in my face. This technology gives the SensoTouch the power to swivel in circular motions and tilt inwards. The range of motion that the shaver provides lessens pressure and irritation on the skin and will result in a closer shave that will not irritate your skin. I find that with the SensoTouch, I don’t have to push nearly as hard on my face to get a close shave as with other shavers, nor do I have to go over the same area multiple times. While I don’t shave haphazardly, being able to take my full focus off of not nicking my face has given that time a bit more of a relaxed feel. I can honestly enjoy a shave now.
If you prefer a convenient dry shave or a invigorating moist shave with your favorite shaving cream, SensoTouch’s Aquatec seal will accommodate you, whatever your preference may be. Personally, I like to use some warmed shaving gel after I have opened my pores with steam from the shower. With a non-slip grip, the SensoTouch is incredibly easier to handle. Fits perfectly in the hand and doesn’t slide around. The shaver also has helped me keep my sink tidier than generic razors, which my partner loves. It was designed to include a facial hair accumulation area for all shavings. For a quick clean up, the razor in itself can be washed with normal water along with the added cleaning brush. Clean up takes about five minutes maximum and you’re back to a close shave the next time you use the SensoTouch.
Weighing only 1.2 pounds, the SensoTouch makes an exceptional travel shaver for me, as well. It came with a storage pouch for easy carrying, a cover to protect the shaver and travel lock. I had no problem finding somewhere in my luggage for this shaver. If you’re going on a quick trip and have your shaver charged prior, you more than likely won’t need to charge again, unless you plan on shaving twice a day on a 6 day trip. Furthermore, the SensoTouch has a function to allow it to toggle between 100 volts AC to 240 volts AC, which made my international trips with it in tow to be just that much easier.
The SensoTouch boats that it is completely accurate and that it will provide total coverage. I would say that is about right. The Dual Precision heads on the SensoTouch have holes to catch the stubble and slots to manage the normal hairs while shaving. By lifting hairs to cut below skin level, the Super Lift and Cut blade system lifts your facial hair, while the SkinGlide low-friction surface slides along your skin easily with its smooth flat surface and rounded edges. In addition, the there is also a trimmer included for accurate mustache and sideburn grooming.
Coming with a two-year warranty and stellar customer service, any problems with the SensoTouch can be easily remedied by customer service. I had a problem with the battery. From the time I took it out of the box and charged it up, it wouldn’t hold a charge as it was supposed to. I got on the phone with customer service and within a few days I had a brand new one that worked perfectly.
