Panasonic ES2216PC Review

The ES2216PC is completely waterproof and fully immersible, which means you can take it with you in the shower or even in the bathtub. Designed for wet/dry shaving, this razor gives you plenty of flexibility in where and when you shave. It also makes it easy to clean up. Just run the shaver under water, and you’re ready to go.

With four floating, pivoting heads, the ES2216PC is capable of achieving a close shave – minus the mess and bumps that come along with regular razors. The pivoting heads make it easy to reach those curvy areas, like your knees and underarms.

And if you have extra-sensitive skin, you’ll be happy to hear that this razor’s blades and foils are hypoallergenic. There’s no need to worry about abrasions, rashes or irritation when using this razor.

The pop-up trimmer was a nice added touch, and helped us remove those pesky little hairs we missed the first time around. Panasonic even includes a bikini trimmer attachment, so you can enjoy a smooth, silky bikini line all summer long. The bikini attachment also features three different levels, so you can choose how close of a shave you want.

Unlike other shavers, the ES2216PC is lightweight – just 0.36 pounds. It’s battery-powered, too, so you can take it with you on the go. The only complaint we had was that charging takes a full 12-hours, and you only get about 20 minutes of use before you have to charge again.

If you shave multiple times a week, having to constantly recharge the battery may be a slight inconvenience for you.

The charger is the actual plug itself, so the shaver doesn’t come with a doc or A/C adaptor.

All in all, we were impressed with the ES2216PC. It’s easy to use, it offered a close shave, and the extra attachments made it achieve silky smooth skin.


  • 100% waterproof for use in the shower or for dry shaving
  • Battery-operated for on-the-go use
  • 4 floating pivoting heads move with the contour of your body
  • Blades and foils are hypoallergenic for use with even the most sensitive skin
  • Affordably priced
  • Comes with a bikini attachment and pop-up trimmer


  • May not be the best option for coarse hair

If you have exceptionally coarse hair, the ES2216PC may be the best option for you. This shaver works with most hair types, but people with coarse hair tend to have a hard time using any shaver.

We loved the Panasonic ES2216PC. Shaving was quick and easy, and clean-up was a breeze. While we would have liked to see a longer battery life, recharging is simple enough. We highly recommend the ES2216PC to anyone looking for an affordable, effective wet/dry shaver.
