The Conair Gel & lather heating system provides a hot, Barber shave experience in the comfort of your home. Hot lather not only gives you one of the smoothest, most comfortable shaves you’ve ever had, but also one of the best. Hot lather softens whiskers so that there's less irritation, less tugging and less pulling- giving you a smooth, close comfortable shave! This device instantly heats gel or lather and will instantly heat a can of gel or lather for a smooth, comfortable “Barber shop” shave. The variable temperature control allows you to control the temperature, preserves the consistency of gel and features a ready indicator light. Great for Ladies shaves, too! 120V plug-in operation.
