Philips SensoTouch shavers

GyroFlex 3D

The GyroFlex 3D contour-following system adjusts easily to the curves of your face, minimising pressure and irritation. Philips SensoTouch RQ1250 has been engineered to conquer every curve, hugging the skin without rubbing, but cutting the hairs close, whatever direction they are growing.

SkinGlide for extra-close cut

Soft touch, smooth shave

The Philips SensoTouch shaver gives a soft touch for a smooth shave. The GyroFlex 3D system adjusts easily to the curves of your face and shaves even the shortest stubble with its flexi-moving 3D heads. It seamlessly follows every contour of your face and shaves every hair in just a few strokes with its UltraTrack heads.

SkinGlide

The low-friction SkinGlide shaving surface slides smoothly along your skin for an extra-close cut.

Patented Super Lift&Cut Action

The dual-blade system lifts hairs to cut comfortably below skin level. The patented super lift and cut system in this shaver offers superior closeness and contour-following. The first blade lifts the hair from the skin and the second blade cuts for a comfortable, close shave. The GyroFlex 3D shaving heads automatically adjust to every curve of your face and neck for flexible, smoother shaving. The close-fit swing mechanism allows the head section to tilt forward and back, allowing hair to be gripped firmly at the roots.

Aquatec
Wet and dry shaving
Aquatec

The wet and dry Aquatec seal gives you the choice between a comfortable dry shave and a refreshing wet shave using a shaving gel or foam for extra skin comfort.

UltraTrack
UltraTrack's three specialised tracks
UltraTrack - three specialised tracks

The specially designed UltraTrack heads catch every hair with just a few strokes. The combination of three specialised tracks gives a close shave that keeps skin irritation to a minimum.

  1. Slots for normal hair
  2. Channels for long or flat-laying hair
  3. Holes for the shortest stubble

The triple-track shaving heads have more blades than traditional single track heads to shave more hairs, more efficiently, at every stroke. So you don't have to go over and over the same area to get a really close shave.

The replacement head for this shaver is RQ12

Precision trimmer

There is a skin-friendly, precision trimmer embedded in the shaver for perfect moustache and sideburns trimming. Open the trimmer by pushing the slide downwards. The trimmer can be activated while the shaver is running.

Design

The ergonomic design of the shaver is centred around the slim handle, which ensures close control and extra precision. The easy-grip handle has an ergonomic grip with anti-slip coating so it sits perfectly in the hand while shaving.

    I've owned a number of foil shavers in the past and never got on too well with them. The more expensive ones are okay if you have very short stubble, but if you miss a day's shave then two days length can be tricky to deal with. As such until today I have mainly stuck to wet shaving with a Gillette Fusion or (when time allows) a straight razor.

    After receiving some gift vouchers I decided to give an electric shaver another go. After remembering my father having a very early model Philishave which worked flawlessly for many, many years I decided to give a rotary shaver a tried and ended up splashing out on the RQ1250. It's about twice as much as I'd planned on spending, but I was feeling reckless (and I'm very glad I was!). The shaving mechanism is identical to the top of the range RQ1290, but doesn't come with the automatic cleaning gadget. Frankly, as the razor is so quick and easy to clean anyway, I believe the additional cleaner is utterly pointless.

    The quality and comfort of the shave is by far the best I've had with an electric shaver. Whilst not quite as close as I can achieve with my Fusion or straight razor there is so little in it that it hardly matters. It's certainly closer than I've achieved with a lot of cheaper razors. It also coped remarkably well with 3 days worth of stubble - no foil razor I've tried has ever managed this without having to resort to using he trimmer first to trim things back a bit!

    The build quality is exceptional. Whilst this might be a high price to pay for something you'll only use for a few minutes per day I fully expect to still be using this shaver in ten years' time.

    When you've spent over 120 quid on a shaver, you really want it to be good. You persevere, try different ways of using it, blame yourself for your failure and suffer poor results in order to justify your state of denial. Then one day you wake up and realise that this shaver just isn't doing the job anything like as well as any of the last six shavers you owned.

    So it is with this Philips. It takes twice as long and gets half as good results as my old Philishave - and that wasn't the best shaver I've owned. The blades are so far from the outer perimeter of the shaving head that it impossible to reach hairs growing close to the nose. Long hairs (more than 1.5mm) don't get cut and each area of the face requires attacking from every possible angle to do the job.

    No, after 4 months of desperate effort there is only one conclusion - it's an expensive lemon. So, I guess it's off to counselling for me.

    Okay, so I read a lot of the reviews on here before before I splashed out. (I went and bought it half price at a well known high street chemist though...).

    I have owned the Phillishave 8882 Sensotec for 8 years now and never really got on with it. I've got very sensitive skin under my chin and neck and was always suffering from skin rash and a burning sensation after using it even on hyper-sensitive setting.

    I generally don't shave Friday - Sunday so would have a wet shave on Sunday nights with Gillette very expensive and then used the electric for the rest of the week. Sometimes I'd have to revert to Wet mid-week when my face just couldn't take it any more and the Shaver got shelved for a year or so at one point when It was misery to have to do my collar up and wear a tie.

    So this new year I decided to treat myself. I was hoping that shaver tech had moved on somewhat in recent years and I was torn between this and the Braun Series 5 foil shaver as a new alternative. However, my beard is thick, grows fast and in several different directions, so the rotary is more suited to me and I was a little bit scared of the foil! With a bold claim for the best shave I'll ever have and a money back guarantee I went for it.

    So how is it?

    Brilliant. from day one I had no soreness, no rash, no problems at all. I used my regular post shave balm still but never even thought twice about my face all day. All week even.

    It's a nice close shave, not as close as a wet shave with a new Fusion, but not a million miles off. It's so much better than my old Phillishave too... no stray hairs left anywhere, the heads really do pick up all the hard to get ones round the neck and jaw area.

    This is my fourth electric water proof shaver, 1 Panasonic and 3 Philips, which I use for shaving in the shower.

    I have used my Philips RQ1250 SensoTouch GyroFlex 3D for 6 month now, and here you have my conclussion so far:

    Pros:
    - Nice build quality
    - Very flexible head, follows the face very well
    - BEST Pro: No matter how hard i press against the skin, I don't get skin rash at all

    Cons:
    - Poor shaving performance: It takes forever to get a close shave compared to all my previous shavers ...but then of course you can shave forever without gettng skin rash. Also this is the first shaver where i actually have to lift up my nose to get close enough. The shaver has a distance of more than 8 mm from the edge to the cutter blade!!
    - Bigger than expected. Bigger and heavier than my two previous Philips shavers
    - The "precision trimmer" is getting really heavy to push out, it does not cut very well(but as good as any build in trimmer i have tried) and the space where the trimmer extracts from fills hold water, cannot be cleaned and might be a good place for bacteria
