Philips Star Wars Shaver SW6700/14

ELECTRIC SHAVER

$219, available till Dec 31

Use the Force when you shave each morning, with the Philips Star Wars Shaver SW6700/14. It is designed to look like the Resistance pilot Poe Dameron's X-wing fighter in the Star Wars movie, with its scratched metal finishing and red stripes. A red X-wing symbol lights up when you switch on the shaver.

The shaver features Philips' V-Track Precision Pro technology, which uses 72 self-sharpening V-shaped blades and cuts at 151,000 times per minute without pulling or tugging. This allows the shaver to have a closer shave to the skin without irritations or burns.
