Gillette Mach 3 Turbo.
my beard is really hard, and after shave t comes back in 2-3 days, so i've re-shave at every 4 days. I was using MACH-3 but its costly so i started using Gillette guard (Rs.5 per blade) Guy, want to know about electric shaver. Can electric shaver is good compare to regular blade?????? Reply guys..........
Haha... to all those spending fortunes over 3 or 5 blades!!
I am using Gillete single blade razor for a month and it's awesome! Since it's single blade, hair doesn't stuck between blades, and it shaves good. New blade in just Rs 5.
Single Blade FTW!!
^^ WTF Apr 2010 and still using ??? You are using a blade for around 1.5 yrs with 2-3 times a week shave ! Might be Apr 2011 but still cant be.Mine machIII lasts 2-2.5 months with 2 times a week shave
I have been using a Philips trimmer to shave my beard. It isn't comfortable by any means, but using the razor-blade somehow makes me feel like a dressed chicken when I'm done. Also, the hair on my neck and chin are like steel and it gets quite hard to use a 2/3 edged razor after the first time.
I finally decided to buy the Philips 3-headed electric shavers. I narrowed in on these 3 models:
- HQ7320 Dry Electric Shaver - Rs. 4269 (from FlipKart India; available in India)
- Aquatouch AT890 Wet & Dry Electric Shaver - Rs. 5600 (approx.; from eBay UK; not available in India)
- Norelco 1150x/40 SensoTouch 2d Wet & Dry Electric Shaver -
Rs. 62085897.60 after using a discount coupon (from eBay USA; not available in India)
I went ahead and ordered the 3rd one because it is slightly more advanced. Its Market Price in the US is 99.99 $(equivalent to Rs. 5200 approximately). Though I end up paying about Rs. 700 more, I felt it was ok since its not available in India and was ok for the shipping cost. I wanted to buy the 1st one(less risky and cheaper), but the other 2 were dual shavers(both wet and dry).
Overall, all 3 have excellent feedback. And the sites selling them claim to be providing a Manufacturer's Warranty of 2 years. One can choose considering the requirement(dry or wet & dry) and the budget, and the willingness to take risks buying a product from an online shopping site from another country.
On the purchase part, the Norelco 1150 that I have ordered will be bought by a 'reseller' located in India from the 'seller' located in the USA. The reseller will receive the product, clear customs and ship it to me. The price is all-inclusive. OCTROI and other local taxes, IF applicable to be borne by the buyer. The reseller has mailed me that he is processing my order with the seller, and the seller may cancel the order or may have run out of stock. So, I'll have to wait until the 12th of this month to know the status of my order.
I hope to receive it before I go on Christmas Vacation!
