The Philips Norelco team sent me their new SensoTouch 3D 1250x electric razor to try out. After using it for the past couple of weeks, I’ve concluded that the Philips Norelco 1250 SensoTouch 3D Electric Shaver is the best electric razor I’ve ever used. I doubt I will ever use my other razors again. The product literature states that the razor features a three-dimensional GyroFlex component that helps the shaver to follow the contours of the face. The promo material also mentions the UltraTrack shaving heads pivot around, tilt inward, and flex outward to adjust to the curves of the face and neck. But when it comes down to it, the SensoTouch 3D is a great razor because it shaves close and is very quiet, fast, and smooth (I didn’t even have to use shaving cream or gel). I don’t usually buy a razor because of how it looks, but the SensoTouch 3D looks very sleek and elegant. I think I’m going to name it after a salty tourist, Angelina.

The Philips Norelco 1250 SensoTouch 3D Electric Shaver would make an excellent gift for the man in your life. However, with a list price of $200 ($171 at Amazon) it’s not cheap. This is the type of razor you get if you want to splurge a little. In my opinion, it’s worth the price — and you don’t even have to sign a two-year contract or get a data plan.
