The Moisturizing Shaving System is an electric shaver with an integrated NIVEA for Men conditioner dispensing system.

The formula is enriched with vitamins and chamomile to condition the skin and support a healthy look. The individually moving shaving heads automatically track the curves of the face and help to protect against skin irritation. The shaving heads have unique glide rings to help the shaver move smoothly over the face.
