From the Manufacturer
Philips understands that while men want to look presentable, they want to spend as little time getting ready in the bathroom when they could be getting on with the rest of their day. With this in mind, Philips has created PowerTouch, its quick, convenient and skin-friendly shave for a fast way through the morning's shaving routine.
Philips Introduces the PowerTouch
A Fast Way Through your Morning Routine
The PowerTouch series is for a convenient dry electric shave to make your shaving routine simpler, easier and faster. PowerTouch combines reliability and efficiency with functionality and design. The entire range allows for quick and easy cleaning under a running tap, while corded-cordless versatility and long-lasting Lithium power, means that the men can enjoy the mobility of a cordless shave with longer battery life.
The Philips PowerTouch PT720 shaver is equipped with dual-blade system to give you a close shave. The advantage of having a two-blade system is that you enjoy a comfortable and soothing shave. The Philips PT720 Super Lift and Cut system is designed to give you the closer yet secure shave, the first blade lifts the hair and the second blade cuts for a comfortable close shave.
Philips PowerTouch shavers range gives performance. The ultra-thin heads have slots in the blades to catch longer hair and holes in the blades to shave short stubble. The double-action Super Lift and Cut action means that the first the blade lifts the hair and the second the blade shaves it off, so we get close to the root of the hair. It means the shaver is able to cut the long hair and then the short stubble even on the neck.
Advised Shaving Method
Rotary shavers require a rotating movement to get a close shave, contrary to a blade, where a rotating movement is dangerous and a linear movement is the standard. When shaving the neck, look down to catch all hair, which again, is quite dangerous with a blade.
The Philips PT720 electric shaver comes with a washable shaver head, meaning it is very easy to keep it clean and hygienic, as you can simply rinse its shaver head under the tap. It also includes a cleaning brush to remove even the smallest dust particles and hair. Your Philips PowerTouch shaver comes with corrosion free heads to give it a brand-new look even after many uses. Keep your shaver in optimal shape by rinsing it under hot water after every use.
Replacement Shaving Head
Philips offers a range of replacement shaver head for its PowerTouch shaver range. All Philips shavers come with one shaver head that can be replaced after every two years for optimal shaving results. To get the most out of your shaver, you should clean its shaving head after every three months.
Philips PT720 - A Rechargeable Electric Shaver
Philips PT720 is a rechargeable shaver so you can enjoy the comfort of cordless operation with a multi-purpose display; battery low indicator, battery full indicator and charging indicator. Charge your shaver for eight hours to get approximately 40 minutes of cordless shaving time. You won't need to recharge your shaver for nine days, on average.

So you get a classic cordless dry Philishave quality shave for a budget price, and the battery lasts a decent 40 minutes - so why pay more? Well the Li-ion battery recharge time is 8 hours, not just 1 hour with the more expensive sibling PT860, and worse still there's no flip-out beard trimmer as with the PT860. The latter is a problem for me, I use the flip-out trimmers a lot for sideburns and the odd long hair. The 8h recharge is less of a problem about the house as you can simply plug the recharge cable in and use the razor off the mains [or you can recharge for '3 minutes' and get enough to finish your cordless shave]. There's no charge cradle required.Read more ›
This new shaver looks really nice and feels good when using it on my face (glides effortlessly)...however I am finding it gives me a burning sensation once I've finished shaving which my old philishave never used to do. Perhaps my skin just needs to get used to it because already after my 5th shave the burning sensation has reduced.
It gives a very good shave, but only very slightly better than my philishave so I don't think it was worth upgrading in my case. It's cheap though so I can't complain!
If you are looking for a first time shaver then this is the one for you - it's brilliant, but if you already have a philishave shaver that still works and you only want a new one because you think it will give you a much better shave then I recommend waiting until your shaver actually does break!
=========REVIEW UPDATE BELOW==========
It's been a few weeks since I bought it and I can report that the burning sensation has stopped. I guess my skin has adapted to it.
=========REVIEW UPDATE TWO============
When I said originally that it only gave a slightly better shave than my old philishave it was because this powertouch still left a few very small hairs every time under my chin. I've since learnt that if you very slowly move the shaver over that area it will actually get those hairs. Now I can say this is the best shave I've ever had, my skin is extremely smooth now. Upped my review to 5 stars. :)
Some have worried about time to recharge - not a real problem in everyday use. There is no sign of it running down during four or five shaves without connecting to the charger.
Easy to wash the head under the tap.
Connecting to the charger is really easy - just remember its the smooth side of the plug on top. And there's a flashing green light until fully charged.
Although this model does not have a trimmer, it cleans hair from the sides and back of the neck with ease.
There's something quaint about using a rotary shaver - it seems to work in all directions and crinkles the skin as it lifts lifts the hairs.
The rotary shaver seems to have been a later invention than the Remingtons and Brauns which I have been using hitherto. I remember trying a single headed version just after the war (WWII that is) and it was not much use, but this triple header is quite a different story.
Yes - this is a rave review and I send my congratulations to Philips and the late Prof. Alexandre Horowitz, born to 'parents of East European Jewish origin, the inventor..
For an interesting insight into the niceties of shaving, do have look at the Wikipedia page 'Shaving in Judaism' and the fashion in which Horowitz succeeded in working round the prohibition of shaving, at least to the satisfaction of some of the clan. The single headed Philishave was still being made at Eindhoven even during the German occupation!
I hope this will be my last ever shaver - its a real beauty, with an elegantly designed transmission system that give the three heads remarkable flexibility - they seem to loat over th skin.
If you need any more persuading - just look at the price!
