I've used several Philips razors over the years (including the much cheaper Aquatouch, my favourite), but thought I would get something meatier in order to try to reduce the time it takes me to shave.

This razor comes in a very large box, containing the razor itself and a cleaning/charging stand. The idea of the stand is that the razor cleans itself whilst it charges, using special Philips cleaning solution. Whilst you can't argue that the razor is cleaned using this method, you do really have to wonder at how this is any easier than simply rinsing the razor under a tap, which takes a few seconds. In addition, you don't have to buy the Philips cleaning solution to rinse the razor with plain water!

Charging, however, is good, with a full charge obtained in about an hour, which gives (I've found) about an hour's shaving time. So pretty good there.

My main problem, however, is with the quality of the shave. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, or maybe I'm just not capable of contorting my wrists and face in the correct way, but the distance between the rotary heads means that I generally miss bits when shaving - and sometimes quite large strips at that! I've given the razor a fair go over the past few weeks, but have concluded that it takes more time to shave than my old Aquatouch - to which I am returning.

I've given this three stars as I wouldn't say it's a bad, bad razor; but there again it's not a very good one either. It does shave, and perhaps with a bit more patience (ie months of practice rather than weeks), I could work out how to use it without having to go over some parts of my chin again and again.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This shaver is exactly the same as Philips RQ1195/17 SensoTouch Wet and Dry Electric Shaver with the exception that the more expensive model also comes with a jet wash. Therefore, the review below may look somewhat familiar, however I have tailored it to include my experience of the jet wash.

The specifications for the shaver claim that it charges in an hour, and indeed it's not far away from this, being just over 65 minutes to charge my device. However, it does claim that it offers up to 50 minutes charging time however, in my experience, it is much better than this. I have had the shaver for approximately 50 days now and have only charged it once. That is with me using it once every 2 or 3 days, and the charge indicator states that it is still on 4 out of 5 bars.

One thing that some people may find irritating is that the beard trimmer doesn't come built into the shaver, as has normally been the case with previous models (arguably, a full beard trimmer has never been included, more of a cut down version). Instead, it is a separate attachment and the shaving head must be removed before this can be fitted. Personally, this doesn't bother me too much as at present, as I have no real need for this attachment and I guess that the reason for doing so was to ensure that the shaver was entirely waterproof.

The shaver also feels comfortable in the hand and this makes it easy to hold and use and I would consider the results of this shaver to be excellent, using it both wet or dry, as there is virtually no feeling of stubble afterwards. I imagine this will decline slightly as the blades lose their sharpness, however, this will remain to be seen.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've always been a user of Philips shavers and usually go for the Nivea range due to burn and irritation when shaving. I've had my last shaver for almost 8 years and it's starting to show it's age so I thought I'd upgrade.

Firstly it's worth saying that the shaver comes in a big impressive box full of lots of bits and pieces, it would look great if you were planning on giving this as a gift for someone at Christmas. Once unpacked the first thing I needed to do was to charge the shaver, this was easy enough but the instruction manual that comes with the shaver isn't the best. It's a very small booklet made up of lots of diagrams with strange symbols telling you what to do, there are no written words and can be difficult to understand what you're meant to do at times. That's the only downside to this shaver, the instruction manual. But once I'd mastered it I was up and running.

Once charged I gave it a go and it gave a surprisingly close shave, something I noticed coming from an 8 year old shaver. And there was also no irritation which was a good thing as I was a bit dubious about going for a shaver that wasn't a Nivea one. All facial hair is caught within the head unit so there isn't any mess and it can easily be washed under the tap if needed. When it comes to cleaning the shaver properly though you do have the Jet Clean System which I have mixed feelings about. You get a bottle of the cleaning solution included in the box which goes into a small tray which detaches from the base unit. It's not clear looking at the instruction manual how much you're supposed to put in, so I have filled it and that seemed to be about right. All you need to do then is plug the unit in, insert your shaver and press the power button on the front.
