Enjoy a close and comfortable shave -- wet or dry. Click here to see a larger image.

AquaTouch has been created for men who want the closeness of a wet shave without the skin damage, with the optional convenience of a speedy dry shave. Enjoy a close and comfortable shave, with the versatility of being able to choose whether to shave wet or dry with one device. Incorporating Philips innovative Aquatec seal, the unit is completely waterproof so it can be used in the shower with gel or mousse for enhanced skin comfort. Or if you prefer, you can use the shaver dry, with the benefit of being able to wash the head easily using the QuickRinse system. The triple shaving heads gently flex to follow the contours of your face giving a smooth close shave, with no nicks, grazes or "razor burn".

Why choose a Philips Shaver?

Philips offers a complete range of shavers to suit your needs and deliver the perfect shaving experience, every time. The AquaTouch Series is perfect for those looking for a convenient and quick wet and dry electric shave without any skin damage, making your shaving routine simpler, easier and faster by combining the latest technology and innovation with cutting edge design.

Features

ys521
100% waterproof shaver

AquaTouch features an inbuilt seal, Aquatec, which means that the shaver is 100% waterproof and optimised for use with shaving gel or foam for enhanced skin comfort and minimising skin irritation. The benefit of shaving in the shower is that your pores open, allowing a closer shave, and it's gentler on your skin too.

ys521
Triple flexible shaver heads

The triple heads flex gently to follow the contours of your face for a comfortable smooth shave.

ys521
Skin Protection System

Rounded low-friction protection heads adjust to the curves of your face to prevent skin damage.

ys521
Dual voltage

All Philips shavers are dual voltage -- 100-240 V, and come with a UK 2 pin bathroom plug as standard.

ys521
QuickRinse System

AquaTouch uses the QuickRinse system, so it's very easy to keep it clean and hygienic; you simply rinse under the tap or in the shower after use. It also includes a cleaning brush to remove even the smallest dust particles and hairs. Your AquaTouch also comes with corrosion-free heads so it stays looking good for longer. Keep your shaver in optimal shape by rinsing it in hot water after every use.

ys521
ComfortCut Blades

These blades glide gently over the skin to give you a smooth shave with no nicks or cuts.

ys521
Cordless & rechargeable with LED display

A full 8 hour charge gives you 45 minutes of cordless power sufficient for about 15 shaves. The shaver features LED indicator lights, so you can see the status of your battery, as well as a charging indicator light.

4.0 out of 5 stars Go Anywhere at a Great Price 19 Nov 2013
By Dave the Flav' VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Few brands offer a close and comfortable shave, Philips however are one that do. The solid build quality and ergonomic shape means that it's comfortable to hold, balanced, and the well placed and engineered power switch and display means that when you've packed for that all important holiday you can trust you shaver will still be charged when you get to your destination. The `comfort cut' shaving heads and `Skin Glide' surface allow for a close but comfortable shave. The `Wet & Dry' feature allows for the use of foam or not, giving you more choice. And the easy clean flip cap means you can simply rinse the head under the tap when switched on.

Despite it's rather obvious recycled box material and no frills interior, the shaver is securely packaged and comes with power adaptor (to 2 pin shaver plug), a brush for cleaning, plastic head cap and the usual paperwork. I was slightly disappointed not to see a small case or neoprene pouch which some of the others in the Philips range do. I would debate the 8 hour charge and 45mins shaving times with Philips but for most, the battery will hold up just fine. The Lithium Ion battery itself usually guarantees several good years of battery life before you'll notice any sort of degradation. As someone who doesn't shave every day, I did find the Aqua Touch wasn't quite as good for cutting after a few days growth as some others and found myself going over the same spot a few times more than I would expect, but for the price and build quality, it's a shaver you can't argue with and will make any gentleman a happy soul come Christmas day.

By GH
First impressions were good. Nice design, good weight to it and easy to use with shaving gel and cleaning afterwards. But the performance lets it down. I cannot get clean first shave, need to shave twice and even then reaching the edges and nooks to ensure no missing bristles. So it takes twice as long as a wet razor would without a guaranteed close shave at the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars Austerity strikes 12 Oct 2013
By Paul Madge #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This Philips shaver delivers its core functionality effectively but falls below the line in some important areas - it might be a "no frills model" but the cost cutting has gone too far. On the positive side the three "Comfort" cutting heads are sprung and give a reasonably close shave, plus, do not seem to irritate my skin like some other shavers do. Ergonomically, the shape is good making the shaver easy to hold and manoeuvre. Also,the fact that the unit is waterproof means that you can simply rinse it under the tap and let it dry out - this is a genuinely useful feature but common on most shavers now.

On the face of it all sounds positive so far but there are a number of downsides to the Philips AT899/16. Firstly, the charging time is 8 hours to give you 45 minutes of shaving time - most rechargeable appliances now work for as long as they take to charge or even longer - this aspect of performance is not in line with contemporary standards/expectations. In addition, the battery charge remaining isn't clearly indicated - given the length of time charging takes you need to plan for it so a clear indication of an impending depleted battery is essential. Also, there's no built in trimmer for sideburns etc. - in the past few shavers have been made without this feature and its absence takes cost cutting to a new extreme. The same also applies to absence of a case - yes, a flimsy plastic cover is supplied for the cutters but no case, again, this is a new low.

I had a look round at other brands of shaver in this price range and whilst it is hard to know how well they actually shave, most of them do incorporate a trimmer and battery indicator plus significantly shorter charging time. In summary, the shaving performance of this unit is good but it is simply too austere even allowing for its price and market position.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good basic shaver. 4 Nov 2013
By RM/TM TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've tried the Philips Aqua Touch range before and wasn't hugely impressed so I was prepared to be similarly underwhelmed by this. On balance I would have to say it performed better than I expected.

This is at the lower end of the Philips range of wet dry shavers. It's a plain black, plastic bodied and light in the hand with very few design flourishes but the shaving heads look identical to those of it's more expensive siblings. It takes a long time to charge and the recharge time of 8 hours for a 45 minute shave time seems a little on the low side for modern shavers. It doesn't come with any edging tool so achieving straight clean lines at your sideburns isn't easy.

As to its performance as an actual shaver? As a dry shaver it's not great for me, it pulls at the skin and doesn't shave particularly well. Add warm water and shaving foam though and it becomes a different animal, although it takes a good number of passes to achieve a good finish it gets there eventually and with less irritation than I've had with other electric shavers. It feels pretty good in the hand and it's easy to clean, a simple rinse under the tap seems to do the job.

For me it still doesn't do as good a job as a good manual razor but it will certainly live happily in my cupboard for those days when I've forgotten to restock on blades and need a quick shave. It's not perfect but it's pretty decent.
