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 ideal shaving experience, every time. The AquaTouch Series is ideal 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

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.

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 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.

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.

Tips to get the best out of your AquaTouch Shaver

  • Apply gentle pressure. Pressing too hard can lead to skin sensitivity and irritation
  • If you're prone to skin irritation, use shaving foam designed for sensitive skin
  • Always move the shaver in a circular motion
  • Use the shaver after a shower when the hairs will be softer.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Like most men I find shaving a complete chore. For most of my adult life I have always wet shaved and only used an old electric shaver and handful amount of times. I was never overly impressed with the feel and finish of an electric shaver, but after using this Philips shaver I was almost instantly converted.

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.

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.

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.

This was bought for me as a gift during the mad amazon sale week when me and my girlfriend appeared to have lost out minds and bought a lot of gifts for each other. I have used this shaver three times now..twice wet and once dry and I have to say it shaves and feels a LOT more comfortable on the wet shave. This is and was my first time ever using an electric shaver for wet shaving and I was a little sceptical but I am now sold!!! I decided, for the purpose of research and testing, to see how it would perform as a dry shaver and I found it a little too "harsh" on the skin. I am a Philips man and I had to complete the shave using my trusty James Bond special edition Philishave. I will keep it for wet shaves and alternate between wet and dry shaves as my mood suits me. If you are unsure of this shaver as a wet shaver dont hold back!!! Go ahead and buy it...you wont be disappointed..it shaves clean and leaves the skin smooth and irritation free!
