Remington XR1470 HyperFlex

The Cleanest Results Guaranteed

Unrivaled closeness, superb comfort, and amazing power! These are the words that best describe the Remington XR1470 electric shaver. This razor from the new Hyper Series combines advanced technologies and the highest quality to deliver your best shaving experience possible.

First things first, the HyperFlex razor has an innovative design allowing you to shave at any angle for precise closeness and ultra-smooth finish. The unit is fitted with three fully-floating rotary heads that adjust to all contours of your face. They flex and tilt independently as you go and don't leave areas with unshaved stubble. Thanks to their ActiveContour design, they always stay in close contact with the skin even on the neck and chin areas. The HyperFlex heads are supposedly good for as long as 12-18 months of regular use.

Slots and holes in the heads enable you to shave both long hairs and short stubble effectively. Yet, if you need to go through extremely thick hair, you can activate Turbo Mode that increases the motor speed a bit and guarantees the smoothest results for your face.

Another thing that really sold us on this shaver is the convenience of the trimmer. The unit has a built-in flip-out trimmer that makes the grooming of sideburns and other facial hair a quick and effortless job.

Review of Remington XR1470 HyperFlex Wet & Dry SElectric haver

Ultra Flexible

The thing you'll particularly like about this electric razor is the WETech technology and what it offers. It makes the shaver 100% waterproof and 100% versatile, giving you the freedom to shave in your shower using different foams and gels. The special handle design makes it easy to use the shaver in the shower - it's not too slippery when wet. After shaving, you can quickly rinse the unit under running water and leave it right in the shower. You don't have to worry about harmful bacteria since the shaver has the anti-microbial additive that inhibits bacterial growth.

If you choose dry shaving, you can simply put the shaver on the nice charge stand afterwards. Plus, the stand not only keeps the unit upright but also protects it during travel and storage. And if you worry that the battery might die during transit, you can activate a travel lock which will prevent the shaver from turning on in your suitcase. One more nice feature for travelers is dual voltage support. The razor can work overseas granted that you have an adapter.

All things considered, we would highly recommend the Remington XR1470 HyperFlex razor for professional barbers and those who need an ultra-flexible device for the cleanest shave possible. It always leaves a nice smooth shave with no razor burn, no matter your type of skin. It flexes to accommodate even not-so-supple skin for a nice close shave, which makes it excellent for any elderly man.

Remington XR1400

Ergonomic Design

The Remington XR1400 Verso is probably one of the most ergonomic buzzers we have ever seen. It's very compact and has a unique curved design that fits comfortably in your hand. Being 100% waterproof and suitable for wet shaving, the unit has reliable rubberized grips at both sides and back so that you could have a total control when shaving with foam or gel. This palm-sized cutter is quite simple to move around your face and it really catches every stray hair. Thus, you can go over a spot once instead of several times, which cuts down on the irritation drastically.

The Verso mini shaver also doesn't catch and snag skin. It uses two unique technologies - the HyperFlex neck and PrecisionPlus heads precisely contour your face to ensure a close, smooth shave. As a result, it handles longer hairs and shorter stubble equally well, though you might need a little practice and some time to get exactly what you want.

The Verso works beautifully right after unpacking. The unit arrives charged, so you can cut your hair right away without using the cord. The Lithium battery ensures 45 minutes of runtime after a full charge. Still, if needed, the shaver can also work while plugged in.

Review of Remington XR1400 Verso Wet & Dry Men's Shaver & Trimmer Grooming Kit

Complete Grooming Solution

The Remington XR1400 Verso is not just a super-ergonomic shaver, it's a total grooming kit in the palm of your hands. The shaver comes with three attachments for the ultimate in versatility. All the clip-ons are sturdy and easy to install. They easily fit onto the universal base and stay in place during use:

Precision trimmer. The independent trimmer has a 10-length adjustable comb for finishing touches on your beard, mustache, sideburns, and more.

Scrubbing brush. The brush features charcoal-infused bristles for deep cleansing. It easily scrubs away dirt, sweat, and oil, as well as exfoliates your skin, leaving it clean and smooth.

Triple head rotary shaver. As we have mentioned before, the high-performance rotary shaver has a pivoting neck and flexing heads for an ultra-close shave.

So, if you are serious about experimenting with your personal style and want to get a good all-in-one kit for body shaving, grooming, and cleansing, the Verso is the tool you really need.

Remington F5-5800

Excellent for Beginners

The F5-5800 is one of the most popular electric shavers on the market right now for a good reason. It has many promising features and provides the fantastic value for money at less than $40. Right after unpacking, you'll know that you've received a high-quality product. The razor machine has a robust black handle with a stylish silver trim and easy-to-use buttons. Even people new to electric shavers will easily figure out how it works.

The buzzer boasts many advanced features that make shaving faster and more comfortable. To begin with, it uses the Pivot & Flex Foil technology which allows the head to adjust precisely to your very contours and maintain a close contact with your skin during the whole grooming procedure, even when you go around your chin, jawline, and neck. Therefore, you may be sure that you won't suffer from irritation and bumps caused by excessive friction and snagging. Yet, the major selling point of this shaver is the Intercept Shaving Technology. The unit has two foils instead of one that work independently from each other. And as your facial hair passes in between these foils, the unit first trims it and then shaves. All this makes the shaving process much more efficient and faster. So, even if you have 3 days' growth, the shaver will be able to remove all of the hair with fewer passes.

This model also has a pop-up detail trimmer that can help you sculpt and shape your beard, mustache, or sideburns. The trimmer is neatly hidden on the side of the handle. So, you won’t have to waste your time on changing heads to groom different parts of your face.

Review of Remington F5-5800 Foil with Interceptor Shaving Technology

Easy To Maintain

Another highlight of this razor is its dual power source feature. To put it simply, you can use it corded or cordlessly for your preference. If used unplugged, it runs for a total of 60 minutes after a full charge, which equals approximately three weeks of operation. And you can always be aware of the charge level owing to the LED battery gauge.

After use, this battery-operated razor is very easy to clean. Although the razor is suitable for dry shaving only, its blades are made from surgical-grade steel, meaning they aren't subjected to rust. So, you can safely run the shaver head under a tap. The hairs come out quickly with no additional cleaning required.

All in all, if you need an effective and easy to use foil shaver, the Remington F5-5800 is a sensible option. It provides a close shave using as few strokes as possible. So, this razor is especially good for new users.

Review of the Remington Interceptor F5 Shaver

What customers say about this product

Key Specs

This is a flex foil shaver, and for me it shaves significantly closer than the rotary shaver I'd been using over these three years.

Size & Weight

The small size of the shaver makes it very to carry around.

Features

Quiet and well-designed ergonomically.

Control

The LED light display showing remaining battery power is very slow to creep down. I really likes this feature.
 

Remington R4000 Series (PR1340)

Double Track

The R4000 Series electric rotary shaver is another affordable model from the Remington range. This model is pretty basic yet it still has all the notable features Remington razors are praised for. Three PrecisionPlus rotary heads can easily shave both long scruff and short stubble, while their Active Contour design with extended pivot and linked cutters can help them stay in close contact with your skin on such tricky areas as the jawline, neck, and chin. And thanks to the PowerFlex 360° advanced technology, the shaver heads are able to adjust to the various angles and curves of your face without pulling out the hair follicles. But the best part about the shaver is that it has Twin Track blades on each rotary head. They ensure maximum skin contact in one-pass. The blades spin nicely and quickly, which lets the shaver go faster with less irritation.

As for extras, this portable shaver is fitted with a standard pop-up trimmer allowing you to safely trim around the tight corners of your face. Other than that, it has no frills. The package includes just a power cord that can give the shaver a full 4-hour charge. Depending on how long you usually shave in the morning, the charge will last for up to two weeks. A handy LED indicator will show you the remaining charge and "Low battery" alert. Take note though, the unit can't be used corded.

Review of Remington R4000 Series (PR1340) Electric Rotary Shaver

Ultra Protection

The Remington R4000 electric razor can be used for wet shaving as well, so if you like to use some gels, lotions, or foams, this is a good shaver for you. And if you're worried about bacteria buildup, you can have total peace of mind. The thing is that the blades of this razor are infused with a special anti-microbial additive that inhibits the growth of bacteria to always deliver you a clean and hygienic shave. This useful feature makes the shaver also very easy to clean - simply rinse it under tap water and shake out.

Summing up everything said above, the Remington R4000 razor is a very effective, hygienic, and budget-friendly option. It's great for those who want to get a decent shave but don't want to spend too much money on an electric razor.

Remington PF7500

Uber Comfortable

The manufacturer has done its best to deliver you the most comfortable shaving experience possible and created the Remington PF7500 F5 razor. It has an ergonomic shape and is highly rubberized, thus, it's easy to grip and feels good in hands without any concern about dropping it.

The screen covering the blades pivots and flexes, allowing you to shave closely in such curvy areas as along your jawline or around your chin. And the rectangular head of the razor lets you get extremely close to your beard or mustache without worrying about shaving off something you didn't intend to. Thanks to the interceptor technology and multi-stage cutting system, the shaver first pre-trims longer hairs and then flexing foils shave them. For making clean lines, it also has a pop-up detail trimmer.

Though the razor is designed for dry shaving only, it has a detachable head that can be rinsed directly under running water. Afterwards, you can attach the head to the unit even without shaking it off - the razor comes with a stand/dryer allowing the water to drip out of it after cleaning the blades. Everything for your comfort!

Review of Remington PF7500 Comfort Pro Foil Electric Shaver

Better! Quieter!

Compared to other shavers from Remington F range, this one is more powerful, longer lasting, and quieter. First off, the F5 razor is equipped with a high-torque motor that effectively removes 'millions of tiny hairs all over your face with no burns, rough spots, stubble, or other problems. It cuts cleanly and quickly. The next improvement over other models is the more capacious Lithium power battery that charges in just 2 hours. After a full charge, it provides consistent performance for up to 60 minutes of cordless use. If you happen to forget to juice up your shaver in a timely manner, you can take advantage of a 5-minute quick charge that delivers enough power for one shave. But if you are in a total rush and don't have even those 5 minutes, you can always plug it in and enjoy the convenience of corded shaving.

Another thing you'll appreciate is the Quiet-Drive that vibrates less and is 20% quieter than previous Remington F-series shavers. It's so quiet that the person next to you might not even notice any noise as you are shaving. So, if a quiet and long operation is the thing you cherish, this precise shaver should be a perfect option for you.

What Is a Remington Electric Razor?

Remington is a famous personal care company which manufactures and distributes shavers, epilators, trimmers, and other haircare products for men and women all over the world. With over 80 years of successful experience, the brand creates tools that can help you elevate your personal style and find your signature look. Everything about their products screams high quality and innovation. So, if you are a technology nut always looking for the newest and most advanced products, you're in the right place. Our selection of the best Remington electric razors include the most sophisticated models for various needs and budgets. Here, you'll find both rotary and foil shavers that are outfitted with the latest technologies and have ultra-sharp blades to guarantee the smoothest results possible. And if you're serious about your total grooming routine, you may also be interested in getting an eyebrow trimmer, ear/nose trimmer, or professional beard trimmer.

What Features to Compare

Type

Knowing your facial hair peculiarities is essential for understanding which type of Remington razor will work best for you. The company offers both high-quality foil shavers and rotary shavers. Foil Remington electric shavers use sharp blades that move from side to side and are covered by a thin foil that pulls the hair inside. This type of razor gives a closer shave yet their design makes it tricky for users to follow every curve of the face. Foil shavers work best on large areas and are good for sensitive skin.

Rotary shavers typically have three rotating blades that quickly spin to cut the facial hair. The three spinning blades flex and adjust to each curve on your jawline, neck, and other hard-to-shave areas. However, you will sacrifice the very close shave feel that foil razors bring. Remington Rotary razors are sensible for coarse and thick hair. Plus, they give you more flexibility to shave hard to reach areas.

Wet/Dry Shave

Besides type concerns, you should also consider how you're going to use your Remington electric razor. Most electric razors offer you two basic options - Wet shave and Dry shave. While wet models can also work as dry shavers, dry razors should never be used with gels or foams in the shower. So, if you have very sensitive skin that is prone to razor burns, bumps and irritation, the 2-in-1 Wet/Dry shavers will work better for you. Shaving gels, foams, and lotions will help you avoid discomfort and prevent irritation. However, if you have normal skin and prefer to shave in front of your mirror above the sink, you can opt for a dry shaver. It's more affordable, which will obviously please budget-conscious customers.

Battery

The battery life is also worth taking into account. Typically, Remington electric shavers are fitted with long-lasting Lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries and can work up to 60 minutes cordlessly after a full charge. However, the run time varies as well as the time required for a full charge. If you're the kind of person who is a bit forgetful, look for a quick-charge feature or models that can work both corded or cordlessly. An LED battery indicator with "Low battery" alert would be a nice addition anyway.

Extras

The last but not the least feature to pay attention to is the extra frills you get with your Remington electric razor. Actually, most cordless models come with a pop-up trimmer for grooming your sideburns, beard, or mustache. Also, you can find complete grooming tools that are supplied with interchangeable heads, full-size beard trimmers, combs, and scrubbing brushes. If you're a frequent traveler, give a closer look to models with travel cases/pouches and dual-voltage compatibility.

Did you know?

The First Electric Razor

Although shaving using a Gillette safety razor with replaceable blades gained popularity in the early 1900s, electric models were deemed an advancement when they appeared in the 1930s. It was Colonel Jacob Schick, an American manufacturer, who obtained the patent for the first electric razor in 1930. He created an electric razor with a shaving head powered by a grapefruit-sized external motor. The Remington Rand Corporation has developed their own, more advanced electric shaver in 1937. However, both early versions of electric shavers were designed to be used on dry skin only.

Battery-powered razors first appeared in the mid-1960s. They used nickel-cadmium batteries sealed inside the case.

No Electrocution!

Even if you shave in a shower, you don’t need to worry about electrocution. Remington electric razors are ultimately safe as long as they are used without a power cord. Special care is only required when the item is charging (connected to an electric power outlet).

Men’s Game

While women spend money mostly on toiletries and beauty products rather than costly razors, men shell out hefty sums of money on grooming tools including razors. During the last year, the men's grooming industry valued more than $6 billion. The shaving lotions and gels generated retail sales of approximately $790 million. And it’s predicted that interest in male shaving products will continue to rise.

Younger People Buy Shaving Products Less

It’s estimated that 90% of adult males shave once a day. But the number of young men (from 18 to 24) who don’t use any shaving products at all varies from 13% to 15%. However, once men hit their mid-20s, get married, and get settled into their career, they usually begin shaving and grooming on a regular basis. By the way, not all women find smooth cheeks attractive. Only 45% of ladies prefer the clean-shaven look, while 55% give their preference to bearded men.

High Time for a Beard!

The fun statistics show that most men decide to grow a beard during cold seasons. Probably, they believe that this kind of personal face-warmer can protect them in the wintertime. Still, it’s better to start growing a beard when it's hot outside. Unbelievable, but in summer, facial hair grows up to 60% faster compared to winter.

How Many?

On average, there are about 30,000 hair follicles on the face of a man. The greatest concentration is on the chin and upper lip area. Women also have a staggering number of hairs to struggle with. An average woman has approximately 17,000 hair follicles on her legs, 600 under her arms and 78,000 hair follicles between her legs and armpits. That’s why your wife or girlfriend spends so much time in the shower.
