I price compared with a few places to ensure that you are getting a quality deal. The same shaver is
- $129.99 @ BestBuy.ca
- $129.99 @ Sears.ca
- $129.96 @ Walmart.ca
- $121.12 @ Amazon.ca
As you can quickly observe, Future Shop Canada has the best deal while only Amazon Canada even deviates from the original price. Even so, Future Shop still beats Amazon's price by over $30.
The Philips is a dry shaver, with no shaving cream needed (or allowed - I assume). However, you can wash the shaver to take out leftover hair that sticks around. The shaver claims to give you a close shave by contouring to your face and neck (etc). However, I have never really found these shavers to be as good as a wet razor myself. My husband uses one exactly like this and when it doesn't look like a blind man has tried to shave an ape (granted my husband’s vision isn't that great), it still doesn't provide a remarkably even trim in my books. Granted, his is an older model so they may have improved things since then.
The shaver has a pop-up trimmer for styling your manly hair. This is a great idea and should be used for tidying up beards and making them look more presentable instead of letting the scruff just spread.
You will receive one hour of cordless shaving from this unit, and it only requires one hour charging. There are indicator lights to let you know when your battery is low, full, and when you have done a quick charge. Quick charge is one of the features that I like about this shaver. If you have forgotten to charge your razor, you can pop it on the charger while you shower and three minutes of charging will give you enough juice for one shave. Given our busy schedules and hectic mornings, I can see this feature coming in very handy for many men.
This shaver comes with a charging stand, soft pouch, cleaning brush, and a protection cap that is great for travel. There is no need to keep your blades exposed when your shaver rides in your dopp kit.
The Philips shaver will ship for free as it costs over the $25 minimum for free shipping at Future Shop Canada.
