Panasonic es8228 s : simply the best shaver you’ve never heard of!

Panasonic ES8228 S Men Linear Vortex Nano Arc Foil Shaving System If you’re on the marketing for a wet/dry shaver, the Panasonic ES8228 S Men’s Linear Vortex Nano Arc Foil Shaving System is a great choice. This is a great cordless shaver, like many of the Panasonic shaver’s, and can really deliver a close, comfortable shave anytime. It’s great for beards of any kind, with a monster 13,000 rpm motor it can chew through even the thickest hair, and comes with a pivoting head for maximum facial coverage. This particular model also comes with a built-in trimmer on the back, that can help you easily and quickly maintain sideburns, mustaches, and your jawline.

The Panasonic es8228 s uses a nano-technology for more precision

The Panasonic ES8228 S shaver is one of the most powerful shavers on the market today, with a massive 13,000 rpm motor. Utilizing state of the art nano-technology, Panasonic has crafted blades made of high quality stainless steel, and can hold an incredibly sharp edge allowing you to sculpt your facial hair with a unparalleled amount of precision. The shaver also features a stainless steel foil surface that is easy to clean up, because you can quickly rinse it off in the sink or in the shower.

13,000 RPM motor

In addition to the new nano-tech blades, and the massive 13,000 rpm motor, the Panasonic ES8228S features the innovative ARC foil featured in previous blades. This isn’t just your standard marketing hype, the combination of features and blades make this shaver truly unique in the marketplace. With these ultra sharp blades rotating at a ridiculous 13,000 strokes/minute, and adjustable pivoting head, this shaver can reach hair growing anywhere and in any direction, and without irritating the skin on your face.

The ES8228S can be used with or without shaving creams, wet or dry

Many readers report that the dry shave alone is good enough that they don’t feel the need to shave with shaving creams or gels. For those who want to feel like they just stepped out of a barber’s chair, they have the option of using using an electric razor shaver cream.

Since this is a wet/dry shaver, you can use this wherever you want, either in the shower or bath, or by the sink. Travellers will be happy to see that a single charge can last for up to 2 weeks of shaving using the included lithium-ion battery.

A review of the Panasonic Close Curves Razor

Panasonic Close Curves Razor for women

Affordable, greener than disposable razors with a smooth shave

Panasonic Close Curves Pivot Action Ladies Shaving System

The Panasonic Close Curves razor is a wet dry shaver. You can bring this electric shaver for women directly in the bathtub with you and is fully immersible. This gives you so much more flexibility compared to dry shavers, giving you a quick and convenient shave with the results you want. This Panasonic shaver for women has a nice curve to go close on more difficult to shave areas, such as the knees, the ankles, the bikini line. The bikini line, which is often hard to shave or trim, especially with disposable razors, can easily be done with the pop-up trimmer. This pop-up trimmer allow you to get those longer or stray hairs as well as those areas along the bikini line. In addition, the three floating heads will allow for the closest most comfortable shave. In other words, no more razor burns, no more cuts, no more gauging the skin, no more rash, the blades are hypoallergenic and totally nickel free.

You can use the Panasonic Close Curves Razor in the bathtub, in the shower, wet, dry, even with your favorite shaving gel or cream. The shaver is rechargeable and comes with a compact space saving charger which is connected directly onto the wall. The charger is placed on top of the charger, with no long cord, and offers you up to 7 shaves in only one charge, allowing you to shave an entire week without having to recharge your razor.

To clean this electric razor, simply pop the top off and rinse the blades under running water, which makes it almost maintenance free.

With the cost of quality razor blades like Gillette skyrocketing, women’s electric shavers are in high demand, and the Panasonic Close Curves Razor is a product that will give you the result you want.

What I like: This shaver is sold at a great price, offers a convenient dry or wet shave, offers a fairly close shave (ok not as shave as razor blades, but pretty close!), creates no razor burns or irritation, is hypoallergenic, saves water and produces less waste.

What I dislike: The switches tend to be a little bit difficult to use when the shaver is wet, making it difficult to handle the razor.

Tips: Avoid putting too much pressure when you shave, do light movements over your skin. For better results, try using a shaving cream.

Overall, the Panasonic Close Curves Razor is a good choice all around and a good tool to have.

Review of the Panasonic Pro Curve Double Blade ES4026NC

Panasonic Pro Curve Double Blade ES4026NC

Value electric shaver with some shortcomings

Panasonic Pro Curve Double Blade ES4026NC

I purchased the Panasonic Pro Curve Double Blade ES4026NC and have been using it for a few weeks now, and now that I’ve made enough use of it, I think I can give it a fair review. I’ve always been a faithful Remington customer, but reviews of the latest products weren’t great and my father-in-law highly recommended me to try a Panasonic electric shaver. Obviously, I will be comparing a lot to my old Braun shavers, which I’ve been accustomed to for over 10 years.



I must say that the first thing that pushed me to try this shaver (other than it’s low cost and my father-in-law) is the wet/dry feature. I really like having the option of choosing between shaving or… well anywhere you can think of.  My Braun shaver did not have that option. And I must say that I realized how much better I prefer to shave in the shaver. The hot water helps the shave to glide more smoothly on my face and neck. I tried shaving dry a few times, but my preference certainly goes to wet shaving. However, it is nice to have the dry option when you need to do a small-touch up only. And clean-up of this best electric shaver is fantastic : remove the cap and clean the blade under running water.


I haven’t try the newest Brauns, but I find that the ES4026NC gives me a shave that is much closer than any other electric shavers I’ve own in the past, almost as close as a razor blade I have to say!


The ES4026NC has an ergonomic design, a gives a very natural feel when you hold it while shaving. One criticism : the anti-slip rubber material does not cover where I hold the shaver, it seems to cover mostly the sides of the  razor, while I hold the razor on the front and back (I just find it easier to control the shaver this way).


This is the area where the Panasonic Pro Curve Double Blade ES4026NC lacks the most.  This model has a nickel cadmium batter which are known to lose their charge if they are not fully depleted of power before being recharged. I also thought this shaver gives me less shaving per charge (half the number of shaves compared to my older Braun). And last, you can’t use a cord for shaving if your battery is dead – the shaver sits directly on the charger without any cord, which can be an annoyance when you are in a hurry. However, if you upgrade to more sophisticated models, they seem to all have a quick 5 minutes charge.


The 90 degree angle pop-up trimmer can be used for trimming beards, sideburns or mustaches. I find the trimmer to be a little bit oddly angled and prefer by far the trimmer on my old Braun.


I think that the Panasonic Pro Curve Double Blade ES4026NC is a great little electric razor, good value and is great if you travel a lot (lightweight and doesn’t take much space in your suitcase). Of course, the shaver has its little imperfections, but, overall and for the price, it does the job and I recommend using it wet with shaving cream.

Review of the Panasonic Pro Curve Triple Blade ES7103K

Review of the Panasonic Pro Curve Triple Blade ES7103K

Panasonic ES7103K Pro-Curve Wet Dry Triple Head Shaver
This is a review of the Panasonic ES7103K Pro-Curve Wet/Dry Triple Head Shaver. In the past, I’ve used the Braun Shavers. I have actually been using Braun electric shavers for almost a decade, but I love Panasonic products (TVs, cameras, DVD players, etc.), so after my last Braun shaver stopped working, I decided to give Panasonic shavers a try.

I purchased my first Panasonic electric shaver from The shaver was shipped quickly and after 4-5 days I received the shaver nicely packaged. I got the shaver for a great deal as it was 25% off on the day of my purchase.


The Panasonic ES7103K Pro-Curve is both a wet and dry shaver, so you can use it dry, or under the shaver or dip in the hot water with or without shaving cream. One particular thing about this shaver (and many other high end Panasonic razors) is that it has what Panasonic calls “the sharpest blades”, which basically means the shaver can cut hairs as low as 30 degrees angle, while most shavers have to be used at a 45 to 90 degrees angle. This is a great feature because on some parts of your face or neck, the hair doesn’t grow straight out, and they are tougher to get because they are at a lower angle. The Panasonic ES7103K also has a pivoting head, to reach those hairs even easier.

The shaver comes with a travel bag and a charger unit (not a standing one unfortunately!).

What the shaver looks like

One cool thing about the shaver is that it has a nice LED screen that indicated what the power reserve since the electric shaver is rechargeable. At the back of the shaver is the little pop-up trimmer bar. The shaver has a swivelling head and three blades with two foil cutters to shave your fine hair and a third one to trim longer hair. The shaver is very easy to clean. The Panasonic ES7103K has a motor that runs at 10,000 RPM (Braun runs at 7,000-8,000 RPM).

After my first shave, I have to say that the Panasonic ES7103K shaves fantastically well, and did an amazing job on my neck, which always has the hardest spots to cut. Some of the nice things are the both the foils and the head swivel and seem to follow very well the contours of the face. My first impressions are totally positive and I really like my new shaver.

So overall, a great shaver that really impresses, at a very affordable cost.

Panasonic Close Curves Wet Dry Ladies Shaver – Reviews by

Reviewer: Natalie from Boston, Ma (04/04/2010)
5 stars A very pretty electric shaver really easy to use
I rate the Panasonic Close Curves electric razors a rating of 5.0 out of 5. I felt that this electric shaver had everything I needed : a good shave and a good trimmer.
Best thing about it: The awesome color that will keep any men from using it…
Least liked: None
The Panasonic Close Curves Wet Dry Ladies Shaver is very durable and so pretty! I’ve never purchased an electric razor before (manually shaved), but because I started traveling extensively for work, I didn’t feel comfortable shaving in the tub of the hotel. This is the first electric shaver that I’ve owned, and I am more than pleased with it. I can bring it with me when I travel and allows me to do quick retouch in the morning. The pivoting head is awesome and overall, this razor provide me with a great shave and save me lots of shaving time.

Reviewer: Lily from Nashville, Tn (12/05/2010)
3 stars Shaver provide good look, without the smooth touch
I give this electric shaver an overall review of 3.0 out of 5. This women’s electric shaver has a decent quality and performance and a great durability.
Best thing about it: The electric razors hold the charge very well and is affordable
Least liked: Only okay finish (not the smooth touch I was expecting)
Overall, I liked the shaver because it is convenient. Being wet and dry, I can use it in the shower, in the tub, without the worry of getting a shock. I find that it provides a quick shave. I like to use it on the legs and under the arms, however, not great on the bikini area. It comes with a pop-trimmer, which is a nice feature, but I felt that the shaver lacked the smooth touch I was looking for.

Reviewer: Mandy from Toronto, On (04/06/2010)
5 stars Affordability with good results
Best thing about it: Affordable
Least liked: none
Being a Remington customer for so many years, I was hesitant to try this Panasonic women’s electric shaver. But after reading the Panasonic Close Curves Wet Dry Ladies Shaver  reviews on, I decided to give this baby a try after my last Remington was more than disappointing. I have only used this electric shaver for a few days, but, so far, I am very satisfied with the results. Not scratch, no irritation, I even recommended the product to my sister.

Reviewer: Suze from Seattle, Wa (01/04/2010)
4 stars Good alternatives to the disposable razors
Best thing about it: Colors, trimmer, bikini attachment
Least liked: Shave not as close as blades…
I have been switching between blades and electric razors for the last decade and I have to say that it is the first time that I am really impressed with an electric shaver. I always found the other shavers to scrape my legs and underarms (ouch!), but the Panasonic Wed/Dry shaver gives a super close shave on the legs, underarm and bikini and I have not suffered from any razor burn ever since. I still shave with a regular razor, and use this electric shaver for quick touch-ups.  Plus, the cost of blades for the Venus and Gillette shavers being so high, I find that it is starting to cost me a lot to shave with regular blades, so this is a fabulous affordable alternative.

One star deduction for a shave that is not as smooth as manual shaving, but everything else exceeded my expectation. Would purchase again!
