The Remington F5-5800 Foil Shaver gives you the best of both worlds. It gives you a close, clean shave that a cartridge blade provides, without the risk of nicking your neck.
The flex and pivot technology that’s incorporated into its design allows it to adjust to the contours of your face, giving you a very close shave. According to its manufacturers, this device takes off 97 percent of your facial hair when you shave.
It also has Interceptor Technology incorporated into its design, allowing you to achieve a closer shave with fewer passes. The Interceptor has a small trimmer between each of the foils that works to cut down longer hair for the foils to cut. This unique feature is very effective at taking your beard from long, thick stubble to soft and cleanly shaven. It’s what defines this shaver and that’s why so many people love it.
Another really nice feature of the Remington F5-5800 Foil Shaver that shines is just how easy it is to clean. It all starts with the blades being designed not to trap any hairs, that way you don’t have to waste any time cleaning hairs out of them. Then, there’s the fact this shaver is waterproof, so you can simply place it in the sink under running water when it’s cleaning time.
More than a clean shave
The Remington F5-5800 Foil Shaver provides more than just a clean shave. It comes with a pop-on detail trimmer for taking care of your beard, moustache, and nose hairs.
Wall or battery powered
The Remington F5-5800 Foil Shaver can be used with its cord or cordlessly. This feature comes in handy when you don’t have access to an electrical outlet. It runs up to 60 minutes uninterrupted when the lithium ion battery is fully charged.
If the battery is low, all you need to do is find an electrical outlet, and the Remington F5-5800 Foil Shaver runs fine. It takes two hours to take the battery from very low to full charge.
Another nice feature of this shaver is the LED gauge that lets you know how much charge is left in the batteries at all times.
Designed for International usage
A feature of the Remington F5-5800 Foil Shaver that really sticks out is the fact that it can be used anywhere in the world, regardless of if that particular country uses 120 or 240 volts. That’s a big bonus for anyone who does a lot of international travelling. It eliminates the need to add a power converter to your luggage whenever you travel.
Here’s another cool feature for frequent travelers. This shaver only weighs one pound.
It’s rather obvious, the Remington F5-5800 Foil Shaver is one of the better options out there if you’re in the market for a reliable electric shaver. It has all the key features you need to keep your facial hair nicely groomed, regardless of if you prefer a clean shave or a moustache and sideburns for example.

To get the most out of the Remington F5-5800 Foil Shaver every time you shave, here are some tips you can follow.
- Make sure your skin is clean and dry before you start shaving.
- Apply only moderate pressure when shaving. There’s no need to push down hard, that only leads to an inefficient shave and more strokes.
- Move the shaver across your face slowly when you shave. Never go in circles, use back and forth motions only. The pivot and flex feature that the Remington F5-5800 Foil Shaver has incorporated into its design allows it to bend to the contours of your face. All you need to do is move it back and forth in any direction you choose, and the shaver takes care of the rest on its own. Like most shavers, the F5 sounds different when it’s running over smooth skin as opposed to cutting hairs, so you’ll be able to use that to your advantage as you become more familiar with it for even more efficient shaves.
- Always remember to clean this device properly after each shave. That’s what keeps the blades sharp on this or any other electric shaver.
- You can use this shaver twice a day. Some men have facial hair that grows faster than others, so if you’re one of these men, you should know that the Remington F5-5800 Foil Shaver can be used twice daily without irritating your skin.
