Panasonic Close Curves ES2207P

Who said electric razors are just for men? Having the best razor is a bare essential for every woman.  No one likes those pesky missed spots or a dreadful razor burn, which is why epilators like this one are a necessity. It can be used in the bath or even on dry skin, no matter when you need it. The razor has 3 independently floating heads that work together to follow the contours of your underarms and legs so you can get a comfortable shave at close proximity.  The pop-up trimmer is also great to catch those stray hairs. If you have sensitive skin and are susceptible to getting rashes, the hypo-allergenic blades and foils are ideal for preventing any reaction.  You won’t have to worry about the charger taking up any storage place in your bathroom since the shaver has a compact space charger.
