The gold foil provides me a skin comfort and protection during the shave.
Because the foil is made with hypoallergenic technology which reduces the discomfort and razor burn.
The power plug adapter is not for universal use.
You can use it only 120 volts. So, we have to sadly say that, you can use this shaver only in the USA.
