How the Philips Norelco 1190x/46 Shaver 6800 Won Me Over
Shaving has never been an activity that I anticipate. After years of keeping a smooth face for the military, the hairs have gotten thicker, and thus more difficult to maintain. I’ve been using the same standard razors for my stubble, but they would either drag my schedule from tedious gliding or miss spots if I wanted to be quick.
Although I was never a fan of bulky electronic shavers, I was recommended by one of my fellow armed forces members to try out the Philips Norelco 1190x/46 Shaver 6800

because they had been using it for the past few months.
I was hesitant at first because I have used shavers before, which led to them breaking or losing quality after a couple weeks. The only reason I was willing to conform to their recommendation was due to their promise, a bet if you will, that the shaver would never break on me.
Fast forward to today, several months after buying the shaver, I have seen no depreciation in the quality; I’m continuously blown away by the swift movements and precision of the shaver.
Waking up in the morning has also become less of a downer for me because shaving is quick and unlikely to leave burns and cuts on my face.
In addition, if I’m running late, the Philips Norelco 1190x/

46 Shaver 6800 also works wonders while wet, so if shaving in the shower is ideal then you’ve found the perfect product.
Other features that I especially think puts the Philips’ shaver over the competitors is the bonus five-length trimmer attachment so I can maintain the hair on my body. If you are a man who needs to shape the sides of his hair, the cordless machine can clean it with one of the many trimmer sizes.
To break down the shaver’s technology which doesn’t pertain to the smooth and robust gliding, the Philips Norelco 1190x/46 Shaver 6800 has a lot of power. The battery is made with lithium-ion technology, guarantees fast charges and extensive life.
In my experience, after an hour of charging I can receive the same amount of time off the cord.
In the situation where you have a rugged beard or like to take your time, Philips has you covered with well over enough time to shave. Another neat feature is the foldable charging stand, which saves space on my cluttered bathroom table.
Serving nearly five years in the armed forces means that I’ve done plenty of shaving. It has also meant accumulating copious amounts of razors that I’ve had to throw out after the durability depleted. I can confirm by myself, or with the help of my friends, that the Philips Norelco 1190x/46 Shaver 6800 has lasted. As well as combining between our group, we have saved hundreds on shaving equipment.
When I first bought the shaver it was retailed at two hundred, but has dropped substantially to make room for the new shavers. Here is my tip for everyone reading: do not over spend on a utility that’s new when the old works just as well, if not better.
The Philips Norelco 1190x/46 Shaver 6800is well above the standards of many shavers, and may as well last years.
Truthfully, a part of me wishes the shaver wouldn’t last because I had a bit of money on the line when betting with my friends in the military. However, over the past few months I’ve neutralized the loss with unreliable razor money and profited.
I don’t think I can ever go back to standard razor blades and heads. If I am ever to transition to a new product, it will definitely be a model crafted by Philips.
