I show a $20 coupon available as well. Good deal. Bought a lower model about 2 years ago and replaced the head with the RQ12+ that this comes with. It was about the same price total back then. The RQ12+ head gave me a closer shave and caused less irritation for me than the lower Norelco models I've tried.

Please don't look down upon me for asking this but how exactly do you shave with this kind of wet/dry shaver? I use the Nivea shaving gel that foams really nicely and massage it deeply into my face for a few minutes. Then I go about rinsing the end of the shaver in hot water before shaving my face. In the manual it says to shave with the grain of the hair which I do. My face from the ears to my chin looks amazing, however, when I get to my neck area, it shaves pretty nicely sometimes but misses patches of a bunch of hairs. So I go in and slowly pass over the same spot multiple times just to get the stubborn 2 or 4 hairs left. After that, I take a shower with medium to high heat so it steams up the place a bit, then dry off, put on some moisturizing after shave lotion from Nivea, and go about my day. About 2 hours after the shower and after shave was applied, my neck looks like an absolute scarred mess of red bumps and irritation. Any help or ideas on this? I used to use a double edge safety razor or whatever they are called and it just cut my neck to pieces every time I shaved. I used the merkur long handle with the astra blades if that helps. Have also tried derby and feather and wilkinson's (?) to no avail so that is why I purchased a wet/dry electric shaver.

I don't own this particular shaver (I will soon - thanks OP!), but I have an older Norelco that I use dry with baby powder. I used to have the redness issues before I tried powder. I also usually crank the A/C down and use a small personal fan blowing on my face to keep things cool. My skin has probably built up some more tolerance to the repeated abuse, but I remember the overnight difference powder made. It can still be a tad uncomfortable, but way better than using a blade every day.

I originally used FaceSaver (https://www.walgreens.com/store/c...99-product) but I switched to baby powder once when I couldn't find FaceSaver and it worked about as well, though it's quite a bit messier.

Thanks! I will give this powder a try, this is definitely the first time I have ever heard of using powder on the face before. I only ever used goop from the can and the pre shave oil for thicker hairs. I noticed that when I used the pre shave oil instead of the sensitive skin can goop, I always get these little white bumps/heads on my neck that look kinda like pimples or zits in a way. I switched to the goop and it seems to have improved but now it's just really red with only 4 or so little white heads on my neck. Hopefully using this powder will really help me out, I am down to try anything that will get rid of the irritation and embarrassing white heads on my neck.

i have a very dry skin as well and therefore i use this shaver after shower and with shaving cream, use it with circular motions clockwise (as mentioned in the manual) it gives pretty clean shave and rinse your face with ice cold water (i dont use after shave lotion) as it extracts water from the skin causing further dehydration to the face.

I use the 7000 model and have similar issues with the neck it won't get the hair on the neck also doesn't give me a very close shave I still have a little stubble. I just use regular shaving cream and rinse it out while using it. It's decent but not great.

Try Afta pre-electric shave gel to soften the skin and hairs. Then after shaving wash face with warm water and then apply Gillette after shave or Williams electric after-shave.

Wow, you take your shaving pretty seriously. There's no point for me to take mine that seriously because I develop my 5 o'clock shadow at 9 am.

Is it worth about 45 bucks more for the cleaning stand? That has a $40 coupon which brings it down to about $145
