Key Features and Benefits

Here is a rundown of all the selling points and features of the Remington PF7200 F2:

  • Flex Foil Technology  Remington PF7200 F2 flex technology

This foil shaver adapts and follows the contours of your efficiently because of its full flex and pivot technology. This feature is very handy if you have an angular face.

It allows the shaver to smoothly glide and shave over your chin, neck, and jawline without fear of skin irritation.

Also,  the dual foil cutters and intercept trimmer capture and trim both short and long hair strands for a clean, and even finish.

  • Surgical Stainless Steel Blades

These thin blades are wrapped underneath durable foil sheets, keeping them sharp and preventing them from becoming too dull easily.

This type of blades makes shaving much safer and in my opinion, plays a huge role in giving a close, clean, and quick shave.

  • Washable Heads

The washable heads make cleaning super easy and simple. You can even just run the head under running water, and it’s ready to go!

I also included more detailed instructions on how I’d like to perform a thorough cleaning here.

  • Pop-up Detail Trimmer

I personally love to use this trimmer for outlining my facial hair. You can also use this for evening out your sideburns.

  • Ergonomic design

It is designed ergonomically with a ribbed or textured handle, making every use extremely comfortable.

Even though I expected the textured portion to be rubber but instead gets the same hard plastic material, it still prevents the shaver from slipping from my hands and adds to the overall stylish and appealing look.

  • Sensitive solution

I also have sensitive skin, especially on the neck and chin. So, this feature that helps provide easy and quick shaving even without any shaving cream or lather is a very welcome bonus.

It saves so much time and saves your skin from cuts, burns, or irritation from a normal razor blade.

  • Lightweight and compact Remington PF7200 charger

This shaver only measures 1.4” high by 2.4” wide by 5.3” long, weighing only approximately 4.87 ounces or 0.3 pounds. It is easy to carry around during travels.

However, the charger that comes with it operates only at 60 Hz on 120 Volts AC. So, you might need an adapter or converter if you’re traveling to a different country.

  • Battery life

This shaver is rechargeable and cordless, so the batteries determine how long you can use it in between charges. The description indicates a maximum of 40 minutes of usage.

However, I found that if I use it for around 2 to 3 minutes every day, a single charge can last for a month! This gets two thumbs up from me because it charges for 16 hours, which is a lot of time.

It also has an LED charging indicator that tells you when it’s already fully charged.

  • Warranty

Finally, the Remington PF7200 F2 foil shaver comes with a 60-day money back guarantee and a 2-year limited warranty.

Foil Shaver VS. Rotary ShaverFoil Shaver VS. Rotary Shaver

If you know anything about electric shavers, you’ll know that there are two most common types: rotary shavers and foil shavers like the Remington PF7200 F2.

But what’s the difference between the two? Here’s a quick side-by-side comparison:

12345678910
Electric foil shavers have a thin foil layer that covers the blades, hence the name. Rotary shavers use round, spinning blades underneath discs.
Because of the layer of foil, electric foil shavers limit the contact between the blades and the skin, making them more gentle on your face and neck than a rotary shaver.
The blades of foil shavers move linearly from side to side or back and forth, while rotary shaver blades move in a clockwise manner
Foil shavers either have three or four blades on a single rectangular head while rotary shavers have three or four rotating heads.
Foil shavers offer a cleaner, smoother, and closer shave, while rotary shavers are less precise.
Following the contours of the face and neck is more of a challenge for foil shavers, especially for models without a pivoting head.
Foil shavers give the best results when used in an up-and-down motion while rotary shavers are best used with circular motions that follow that of the blades.
Foil shavers generally tend to produce more noise than rotary shavers.
Rotary shavers are better suited for the occasional shaving of thick hair that grows towards different directions while foil shavers give better results for men with fine, straight hair who prefer to shave daily.
Pivoting heads are more common in rotary shavers.

How To Clean your Foil Shaver

The Remington PF7200 F2 is easy to take apart and clean. To disassemble it, simply press the two spring-loaded buttons on each side. This allows the hair pocket to pop out.

  • Then, push the two tabs in the housing to remove the hair pocket screens.
  • Next, using a small toothbrush, do a quick 90° twist to remove the cutter blades. Brush off any debris and rinse with running water.
  • With practice, this process will be much easier, and you can probably disassemble the shaver in under ten seconds.

Additional Pro Tipsshaving with foil shaver

  1. Remove the hair pocket and cutters when using the pop-up detail trimmer. This way, you can avoid unnecessarily wearing the cutters and screens. This also saves battery charge.
  2. Choose an alcohol-based pre-shave lotion with Vitamin E and Aloe vera for a soothing effect.
  3. For sensitive skin, a fragrance-free aftershave will be much gentler on the skin.
  4. If you want the closest shaves, use a fully charged shaver.
  5. The blades of Remington PF7200 are durable and long-lasting. However, for your own safety and comfort, replace dull blades immediately. The frequency of replacement depends on how often you use the shaver.
  6. It may also help to buy parts recommended by or from the same manufacturer like the Remington PF7200 F2 foil replacement.
  7. Do not put too much pressure on the shaver in an attempt to get closer shaves. Try adjusting the direction and angle of your strokes instead to avoid irritation.
