Philips AquaTouch AT899 Wet and Dry Electric Shaver
With Aquatec Seal and Triple Flex Heads
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 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'.
100 Per cent Waterproof Shaver
AquaTouch features an inbuilt seal, Aquatec, which means that the shaver is 100 per cent 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.
Triple Flexible Shaver Heads
The triple heads flex gently to follow the contours of your face for a comfortable smooth shave.
Skin Protection System
Rounded low-friction protection heads adjust to the curves of your face to prevent skin damage.
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 hair. 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.
These blades glide gently over the skin to give you a smooth shave with no nicks or cuts.
Cordless and Rechargeable with LED Display
A full eight 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.
All Philips shavers are dual voltage -- 100-240 V, and come with a UK 2 pin bathroom plug as standard.

I had to keep the Shaver on charge for a good few hours before using it and I was sceptical that it could ever give me a closer shave than a wet shave could. I was wrong. The 3 heads on the shaver gives you an extremely close shave and I was impressed at just how smooth it was. You can also wet shave with the shaver and I tried this also, but I reverted back to using it dry. It probably took my skin about a week to adapt to the dry electric shaves but it is totally worth it. No more expensive razor heads and shaving foam, just a straight forward recharge and you are good to go for around 5 or 6 shaves, the only slight downside is that you tend to need more shaves per week.
My beard is extremely think so I probably get less shaves than most men do after the battery has been recharged and I would estimate that a guy with less beard thickness would probably get 7 or 8 shaves out of the battery per recharge. But I certainly couldn't go back to wet shaving now. I am totally converted to the electric shaver and this is the highest praise I could possibly give this device.
Putting this trade off in features aside, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the core function of this shaver. In fact, I would go as far as to say that it offers a much smoother shave than some of the more expensive models I've used in the past, although this may be due in part to the fact that this has new blades and I can't fully remember the performance of the others when new!
There is a key flaw in this product however and that is in relation to the charging time. One of the first things which you are warned not to do is to use the shaver while plugged in, however, not everyone has eight hours to wait (charging time) before having a shave. Fair enough, you can charge it overnight, however there also does not appear to be a low battery warning light so one can never be sure when it actually needs a charge. A minor plus side is that a single charge seems to last a reasonably long time and I have found that I can easily get a month's use out of it when used every day (or sometimes every other day).
Philips RQ1195/17 SensoTouch wet and dry electric shaver
If you want the upgrade including the automatic cleaner, this is quite pricey and I don't think it does anything more than you can do manually with a brush. And the cleaning gadget does take up bathroom shelf space.
Philips Senso Touch Wet and Dry Electric Shaver with Jet Clean System
The instructions are minimal and pictorial so I recommend viewing the instructional video above. I was interested to learn that the casing is entirely waterproof and you can shave while showering. I have never been in this much of a hurry but suffice it to say that, to clean or rinse of foam, it is perfectly safe to run it under the tap. The lack of instructions is no real problem since you simply charge and go.
I charged mine for eight hours initially as the instructions stated. However, subsequently I have found it charges much quicker after the initial charge.
It gives a comfortable close shave if you're shaving every day. You do not need to apply much pressure while shaving which makes it good for anyone whose skin is easily irritated. It's not that great for heavy stubble, though.
The RRP seems a little steep which is why I docked it 1 star, but I would recommend this shaver as an everyday basic appliance providing you can get it for a good price.
