Hello guys!! we love trying out new beauty and hair care gadgets and tools so we figured we would start a new feature on our blog where we review our own gadgets and tools. First up on the list is the Panasonic Close Curves Wet/Dry Ladies Shaver ES2216 PC.... have a look.

What it comes with:

  • The pop up bikini trimmer allows for a more precise and closer shave.

  • The adjustable trimming attachment helps when shaving longer hairs.

  • Rechargeable: no need to buy replacement batteries, once your done using it just plug in to the charger and allow it to charge.

  • Able to use in or out of the shower and with or without water: whether you're rushing to get ready and you forgot to shave your legs, or taking a long shower, the best thing about this shaver is that it's quick and you can use it at anytime with or without water.

  • Painless: even though the manufacturer describe it as an 'epilator' don't worry, it won't pull or snag at your hairs, it's virtually 'pain free'.

  • No need to change blades: once again the hypoallergenic stainless steel blades in the shaver won't rust, but you should always dry it off once you're done using it.

  • Pivoting and floating head system: as you glide the shaver along the curves of your body it will self adjust, so you can achieve a closer shave

  • Easy to clean: just simply remove and rinse off the head system with water and spray with alcohol to sanitize it and that's it!

  • Does not give you a smooth shave: one word STUBBLE; even with all the technology behind it you're not guaranteed a perfectly smooth shave.

  • Pricey: the unit runs for various prices on the internet (about USD$30 and up), but I purchased mine from Ulta for about USD$40.

  • Bulky & cumbersome; compared to a manual razor, this thing is significantly bigger so you can't just toss it into your purse and you will have to bring along the charger with you as well.

  • If you're travelling to another country which uses a different voltage then you would need to carry some type of adapter in order to charge it.

Would I recommend it and why?

NO. The whole point of using this gadget is to achieve smooth legs and unfortunately I've never been able to achieve that with this electric shaver, I'm left with stubborn stubble everytime and it even causes more ingrown hair bumps compared to using a regular manual razor. I definitely do not recommended it for use on the face either. For the cost I was expecting better results, it's not at the top of my list for must have gadgets; you're better off using a good ole razor blade IMO.

Well hope this helps and I'll talk to you guys again in my next post


  1. I've use Emjoi epilator for 6 month and I must tell you that it was little painful. So bought the Braun SE7280 Silk-Epil Xpressive and I enjoy it very much. It's not painful at all.

  2. Thanks for the tip. I was always reluctant to trying an epilator cause I know they're painful.
