Panasonic Wet and Dry Technology

Wet and dry technology offers the flexibility to shave wet or dry with the convenience of an electric shaver. The ES-RF31 is the perfect upgrade from your current three-blade shaver or an alternative to the traditional razor, such as cartridge razors. As with all Panasonic men’s shavers, the RF-series are 100 percent waterproof and can be used in the shower too. When you've finished shaving, simply rinse the shaver clean under water and you’re done.

Arc-Shaped Foils

Your face is not flat and for that reason, Panasonic has created a curved foil designed to fit uniformly against your skin, so close shaving can be achieved comfortably even in hard-to-reach areas. Panasonic has created a thin honeycomb-shaped foil for a close and gentle shave, especially under the chin and throat. The sleek design and fit to the contours of your face help to prevent tugging and razor burn.



Sharpest Nano-Edged Blades

Optimum 30-degree inner blades have been sharpened using nanoparticle technology to achieve an extremely fine blade tip edge to reduce cutting resistance by half for the cleanest cut.

The RF-series incorporates a very fast motor at 10,000 rpm (revolutions per minute) for a faster shave to save your more time on your every day shave. It is designed to maintain shaving power and performance when shaving tough stubble for a faster smoother shave.

The new slide-up precision trimmer is ideal for sideburns and trimming back stubble as well as any missed areas.


Pre Shave Care Recommendations

Dry Shaving

The BLOCMEN pre shave powder stick is designed to help reduce any shaving burn from your electric shaver when shaving dry. It contains aloe vera which is known for its soothing properties and cools skin to prevent any irritation

Wet Shaving

Preparing for your shave with a foam or gel helps to hydrate and soften the hair and makes it easier to cut, whilst ensuring a comfortable and outstanding shave. Gilette’s Mach3 sensitive shaving gel offers protection against razor burn and irritation.


Already an Owner of a Panasonic ES-RF31?

Do you already own a Panasonic ES-RF31 but it’s no longer performing how it used to be? The foil and cutter will typically last around two years before starting to lose their efficiency. If you’ve been using your shaver for over two years and have never changed your foil and cutters before then it’s likely they’ve grown blunt and are no longer working at their optimum performance. See the range of replacements for the ES-RF31 and take a look at why it’s so important to change your foils (and save on buying an entirely new electric shaver!)
