I read a number of reviews on different websites before deciding to purchase the Panasonic Close Curves. I must say that it lives up to status as rated by the majority of others. I do think it works better on dry skin and it's fabulous for touch ups. My hair is thick and dark and grows super fast, so I often need to do a quick touch up in the evening. You do need to use some sort of shave lubricant in the shower, but I use hair conditioner even with my disposable razor and that worked great with the electric shaver too! Best of all, no cuts or razor burn with a dry shave!
I switched to the Remington R5130 from the Remington R950 because the cutter portion on my R950 was no longer doing a good job. In comparison the R5130 is horrible. It's slow to cut, doesn't do a close shave and always seems to be out of juice.\n\nI have had the R5130 for about a year and within two months I chose to go back to the R950 and use the R5130 solely for my sideburns. Do yourself a favor and get the R950 or 960.
