Because of my previous experiences it took a lot of heart searching to pay the relatively high price for this model, but I have found it to be well worth the money.
With both a main charger/gel filling station and a smaller charger it will also be invaluable for travelling (filling with gel can also be done manually, thus avoiding the need to carry the main charing unit).
The open head design also makes cleaning very simple but does make the motor sound more noisy - not really noticeable in the shower though.
To get the best results I first wet my face with some hot water. Then I squirt the Nivea balm on one side of my face and shave. Then I rinse the heads under a hot running tap to remove the stubble. I then go through these steps again for the other side of my face and then the neck area.
The Nivea balm is brilliant and really soothes my skin. I have eczema and years ago I used a Braun Shaver. However, Braun use Nickel in the Foil and this causes me to get a nasty rash. Philips use Sandvik Nanoflex Steel in their Shaver heads. This is a much better solution for those with sensitive skin/eczema.
In conclusion if you want a purely dry shave then look at the Philips Arcitec. But if you also want the option of dry or wet shaving then buy the HS8060 or check out the Panasonic Shavers. Boots don't stock Panasonic but Amazon and John Lewis do.
Update January 2008. I like this Shaver so much I have returned the more expensive Philips Arcitec because it never got used. The list price for this Shaver is £150 so the Amazon UK price is a steal.
And considering my coarse, luxuriant facial fungus that has for many years meant wet shaving only twice weekly, this is no mean feat.
That said, the shaver must be used in the same manner as you would a blade -- against the grain, lifting skin to make hairs below stand up etc and with a few circular `Philishave' movements thrown in for good measure.
Additionally, be prepared to use a bit more contact pressure than you might be expecting and to have to go over the same area a few times for true blade closeness.
And despite the HS8060's impressive performance, don't throw away your Bic Cold Fusion Mach 10 Extreme Quantum Turbo just yet, as the sideburn cutter isn't up to much and you'll still need a blade for a nice straight edge and smooth finish.
As for the Nivea lube, it works reasonably well, but has four unfortunate flaws:
Not many shops stock it;
It's quite expensive;
You'll use a lot of it;
And possibly worst of all, it smells like your dad's cheap aftershave and utterly overwhelms any finer fragrance you might care to dab on.*
Not to worry, though, as this shaving system is eminently hackable!
Look for the small seam running around the main body of the Nivea lube cartridge -- it's just a few millimetres from the top.
Take a blunt kitchen knife, insert the blade into the seam, run it around a bit and prise off the top.
Wash out the lube inside, refill it with said favourite shaving product (I recommend the blue and nose-friendly AlphaGel from King Of Shaves) and replace the top.
Trusted lube and familiar fragrance are yours.Read more ›
