3 Biggest Tips of Using Electric Shaver
This is the 3rd post of the 5 review of the Aqua Touch. I’ve been tasked to do this with 9 other awesome bloggers.
There are many tools used to shape facial hair. I used the word shape here because, it’s like a bush where you can trim to your perfection. The common tools I use is the normal razor blade, small scissor, small comb and electric shaver. However, for the sake of travelling light, I decided to dump others except the Phillips AT940.
My facial hair style is the goatee. No moustache. Short side burn.
There are 3 tips that I feel is worth sharing.
- #1 – Use a Comb to Help Trim
I love an electric shaver that comes with a trimmer. It’s a nifty tool that is a lot safer than scissors. There was a couple of incidents where I literally cut my flesh out. Since then I used a trimmer.
My way of limiting my trim is using a comb. I comb my beard downwards, making sure it’s uniformed, then comb upwards and trim the excessive ones. This ensures my trim is perfectly balanced. The key here is patience. Start small bit by bit.
- #2 – Up and Downwards Motion
The manual said “for optimal cut, use circular motion”. I beg to differ. Having 3 circular blades, the ideal pattern to cut hair easily is up and downwards motion which cross intersects blades seamlessly. This also minimize shaving mistakes, especially when doing circular motion. I also use mild soap to maneuver my facial terrain.
- #3 – Charge when Almost Empty
Like any other rechargable batteries, lithium ion in mobile phones, cameras and other devices, it is advisable to charge when the battery is almost empty. This prolongs the battery life and current capacity. The Philips AT 940 promises 60 minutes of juice but I’m going to risk it. In the country I’m in now, it’s using different plug than ours and I’m not a big fan of lugging chargers around. Let’s just hope it’s still usable for my month trip here.
But in most cases when I’m outstation, I don’t think I need to carry the charger with me. Sixty minutes is indeed very long!
