Remington WDF 7000 Smooth & Silky

Overview

The Remington WDF 7000 Smooth & Silky is a top of the line lady’s electric shaver from one of the “Big Four” razor manufacturers.

If you’re going to spend the extra on a razor like this you will want to know what it does that a $40 razor doesn’t do and that’s what we take a look at below.

Appearance and Accessories

The Remington WDF 7000 Smooth & Silky is gold and white in color and has a smooth, ergonomically designed, easy-grip handle that leads to a large head supporting the blades. The foil heads are gold colored.

The razor alone weighs 6.3 ounces. With the cleaning system it weights almost 2 pounds.

The unit comes with its cleaning and charging station, Remington Cleaning Solution (8-ounce size bottle) and a razor cleaning brush.

Main Features

  • The heads use dual Remington Titanium blades for a close shave.
  • Employs a set of SmoothCut trimmers for the bikini line, any missed hairs or longer, multiple day growth that needs cutting.
  • The foil screen covering the blades is a hypo-allergenic safe screen design that allows the razor to follow the contours of the user’s body for a quick, close and comfortable shave.
  • Built-in comfort strips over the blades.
  • No need to press hard against the skin.
  • Rechargeable.
  • Can be used wet or dry – in and out of the shower: like many of the higher end shavers these days it can be used with shaving foam or gel to add extra smoothness and lubrication to the shave, avoiding any chance of irritation.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Unusual amongst women’s shavers, it comes with its own cleaning and docking station; whilst this has been a popular feature of the top of the line men’s shavers for a while now, lady’s shavers have not employed this facility until Remington used it here.

Within the base it can be charged up and cleaned, using a cleaning solution and a filter which work together to make the shaver as good as new after each shave and taking about 25 minutes to cycle through.

The base also lubricates the cutting blades as it cleans, which maintains the shaver in a good state conveniently, without any extra work for the user.

On the docking station an LED indicator will let you know when the unit is cleaning, charging or needs some new solution.

For a quick clean, open the unit up, blow the hairs away and run it under the tap, because the whole unit is waterproof.

Price

The Remington WDF 7000 is priced at around $400-450, depending on where you buy it.

Warranty

The Remington WDF 7000 comes with the standard Remington 2-year warranty.

User Reviews

Users of the Remington WDF 7000 Smooth & Silky report a comfortable and worry-free shave because it never nicks or cuts the user, dry or wet shaving. It provides a great shave for legs and underarm areas, by virtually all accounts, even for those with sensitive skin.

The main problem voiced seemed to lie with the two slender rubber strips (the comfort strips) on either side of the foil area over the blade which can be worn away after a while.
