    Comments about Philips Norelco SensoTouch 3D with GyroFlex Electric Shaver 1290X/40, 1 ea:

    I replaced a Norelco Arcitec and an older Norelco model with this 1290X. The Arcitec had been pretty disappointing after years of shaving with the more conventionally styled Norelcos. But I thought I would try a higher end newer model before going back to the older styles. The 1290X I bought takes all the positive features of the Arcitec and multiplies them by 100%! It is heavier but steadier, infinitely quieter, and it shaves as well as any Norelco I have ever had in 40+ years of using Norelcos. The trimmer is larger and much more effective as well. Charging times are very short and battery life is excellent. I really, really like this razor!

      Okay - Electric razor so do not expect that baby bottom smooth shave. However, comes close. This shaver has the newer blades with an inner as well as outer ring. Runs super quiet! Even the trimmer is quiet. Fits in the hand like a glove. Works well dry and with shaving cream. You can go light (to lift beard) and it does not just fling it everywhere. No irritation after use.

      Very much like the fact that you can just open it up and run under the tap to clean. And the clean light will come on after even the most minimal shave. For heavy duty cleaning it's easy to get the blades out.

      You cannot use this with a cord so watch the handy charge display. And, when you bump it the thumb switch LED flashes for about 2 seconds. Normally not an issue but I had this in a shared drawer and when opened the thing always seemed to be on. Took a bit to figure out it was motion sensitive.

        I can't believe I spent so many years scraping my face with a blade or a 'buzz saw' electric razor. This was a great replacement shaver for a four year old corded electric. I've found that I'm shaving more often (quick clean-ups in the evening) not because it's not a close shave but because it's so fast, smooth and effortless. I haven't tried it in the shower yet... but being able to clean it quickly under running water is great. The trimmer extension is good, quiet, pull free and close also. One thing I'm amazed about is how long the charge lasts. A hour of shave time is a lot given the efficiency of this machine. It holds the charge for weeks and doesn't seem to lose speed. It fully recharges in an hour.

        Philips Norelco SensoTouch 3D with GyroFlex Electric Shaver 1290X/40

         – When it comes to electric shavers, one of the most trusted brands for years has been Philips Norelco. Built with precision blades to give you the closest possible shave, along with innovative technology to protect your skin, the Philips Norelco SensoTouch 3D with GyroFlex Electric Shaver 1290X/40 lives up to the brand’s reputation and proves to be just the versatile, functional tool you need to comfortably target unwanted facial hair.

        Get the Close Shave You Want



        While the convenience of an electric shaver is great, your number one goal when choosing any razor is getting rid of unwanted hair effectively. The Norelco SensoTouch 3D uses its unique GryoFlex 3D system to maneuver its three shaving heads all around the contours of your face. The independent parts can tilt inward, flex outward, and pivot as needed so that the head of the product can easily keep in close contact with your skin. The shaver is equipped with UltraTrack shaving heads, which are specifically designed to help you target both longer hairs and short stubble in order to leave your face completely clean-shaven. These heads combine with patented Super Lift&Cut blades from Philips, which allow the shaver to cut hairs below the surface of your skin, keeping it smoother for longer.

        Innovative Comfort and Convenience



        The Norelco SensoTouch 3D relies on the SkinGlide shaving surface to reduce friction between the product's head and your face. For added comfort, the product is also sealed with AquaTec technology, giving you the option of a wet shave with your favorite shaving cream or gel to further prevent irritation. The product can be used anywhere--including the bath or shower--and is extremely portable if you want to shave on the go. Equipped with a touchscreen display, the shaver will let you know how much shaving time remains until it needs to be recharged. A 60-minute charge will last for about 60 minutes of shaving time (or up to 20 consecutive days).
