Product Description

Product Description

Stay Sharp, Stay the Best

You already know that Formula 1 teams change tyres regularly to win the race by a split second. Did you also know that replacing your shaving head regularly guarantees top shaving performance, as well as the best results?

Like the top equipment used by world class sportsmen, we only use the best materials available. Philips shaving heads are made of the highest quality steel because they are in regular contact with your skin. However, also the best materials wear down because of regular use. Even if an immediate drop in performance is not noticeable, your shaving head will gradually become less sharp and precise.

Replace Your Shaving Head Every 12 to 24 Months

That is why we recommend that you replace your shaving head every 12 to 24 months. The ideal replacement frequency depends on your shaving frequency and the thickness of your facial hair. So replace your shaving head in time and stay on top of your game! Stay sharp, stay the best!

Dual blade system lifts hair to cut comfortably and close.

No problem with the product but just a note of caution before your spend £30 on them. I have had a Phillishave shaver for many years and had never replaced the cutting heads despite the manufacturer recommendation to do so every two years. However I decided it was time to do so and took the environmental approach to replace the shaving heads rather than buy a new shaver. Mistake ! The shaver has packed up within six months and I was able to buy a similar new one for less than £40 ! OK, I can still use the new shaving heads as they are compatible so will get value for money eventually but in hindsight . . . if your razor is old then consider just buying a new one. Immediate benefit is that the rechargeable battery seems to last weeks whereas the one on the old unit needed re-charging every week.

On fitting the new heads to my shaver I experienced the sort of shave I had been missing lately. The heads ran more quietly and left me with a smooth face and neck. The impossible-to-remove hairs that grew on my neck (and were white and therefore less visible)were removed and I was extremely pleased. The cost had been much less than that of a new shaver. I have used Philips for many years and am pleased that by purchasing new heads this will continue.
The supplier sent me a single head at the price of three, but when the mistake was discovered every effort was made to correct the mistake. Full marks to Euroelectricals.

While they may seem expensive for all they are, (3 small blades in a tiny packet) they have breathed a new lease of life into my razor! The shaving experience is now much better and doesn't result in the hairs being tugged out, rather than cut off. Philips suggest they are replaced every 2 years; I can now see why!

Didn't realise how bad my cutters where till I ordered these. (ok I've had my shaver for about 4+ years). It was becoming a real chore shaving...wouldn't cut properly without taking an age going over & over an area of my chin etc.. & then used a wet shaver to finish off what was missed....

banged these in after ordering, light & day difference! close cut again along with how much quicker it is!

The price seems a bit overpriced for what you get but given the price of wet shave blades & how often you'd have to change them, I can live with it. I would however, depending on how old/what model your shaver is, compare the price of new shavers complete with these cutters first as there does'nt seem to be much price difference with some.

This item does its job adequately but costs a very large fraction of the original price I paid for my Philips rotary razor.

this is avery good product except the price seems to go up and down a lotleaving it very expensive at times. I think agood price for this product would be around 15 to 18 pounds then it would be more viable to change regular as surely it cannot take so mutch to make this item. Also i am told to watch out as it is not very well described with some people geting only one blade instead of 3 for their triple head shaver. PWM robin
