Combined, the three heads provide 45 hair lifters and 45 rotating blades to shave underneath the skin, whether it’s wet or dry. They adjust to an individual’s facial contours for a smooth, effortless shave. –Fred Brack

Replacement Interval and Skin Care
Norelco tells you to replace the heads every 12 months, however, that can be excessive in some situations. If you use your Advantage shaver in a dry mode (without lubricant), then replacing the heads yearly is about accurate. However, what Norelco doesn’t tell you (and the reason why most people buy an Advantage) is that if you use this shaver when your face is warm, wet, and with a lubricant (i.e. shaving in the shower) then you can easily go 2 years without replacing the cutters.
The reason for this is because dry shaving with an electric razor is extremely hard on any blade (not just these ones). By warming and wetting your face and whiskers with water and a lubricant (there are many to choose from), you can decrease blade wear by about 60%! It’s also more gentle on your face and can prevent/decrease razor burn.
Skin Care Tip:
If you’re concerned about healthy skin, skin cancer, and/or want to keep your skin looking young as you get older, it’s best to apply an after shave lotion on your entire face with SPF shortly after the shave, while your pores are still open. You also need to apply it every day, not just on days that you shave. Pay the extra and get an after shave lotion with SPF and NOT a big bottle of generic sun block; you just might end up smelling like coconuts. The lotion can be a little pricey when you see the size of the bottle you get for your money, but just remember what your buying it for. And lastly, and this is VERY important, make sure that it blocks both UVA and UVB; not all of them do.

Works like new
By Gerald R. Henry
I have had my Nelreco razor for 5 years now and was forced to replace the blades after one of the combs was damaged during a trip to Hawaii. I ordered the OEM replacement blades and combs from Amazon and was at my door two days later (standard shipping). Received it fast and now my razor wooks good as new. I only had to go to work for two days with a short beard. Nelreco recommends you replace the blades once a year and now that I have the new set, I must agree as I could see the immediate difference. Replace once a year…

Just Like New!!
The HQ167 Cool Skin Replacement Blades makes my older Norelco Razor think it’s brand new. The shave I’m getting now, reminds me of when I first got the razor. The Nivea cartridges and new blades make shaving a smooth pleasure.
