Philips Click & Style 2-in-1, Shave & Stubble YS527/17
One tool, any look
If you have never used an electric shaver before, Philips Click & Style is the ideal tool to get started. Click & Style has two interchangeable heads, one shaves you smooth, the other trims your beard to create perfect three-day stubble. Click & Style has been designed to be a first shaver, ideal for young men from 16-25, as it’s easy to use, and gives you the opportunity to experiment with your look.
The two separate attachments, the shaver and trimmer head click on and off: just choose the one you want and get going. For extra skin protection, the Click & Style can be used wet with gel or foam, and is cordless for convenience.

Three tips for the perfect stubble
1. Use this attachment for your beard
2. Trim against the direction of hair growth
3. Trim without the comb for short stubble and clean edges
Smart Click System
The Smart Click system means that it’s simple and quick to change attachments and your look, even while in the shower, simply click on/ off whatever attachment you need.
Create any look you want
The Click and Style comes with two different attachments, to create any look you want. Just click the attachment you need onto the handle to turn it into a shaver or stubble trimmer. Click it off again when you've finished.
These blades glide gently over the skin to give you a smooth shave with no nicks or cuts.
For optimal hygiene, the shaving head of Click & Style is detachable, so you can wash it under the tap or in the shower after use.
Quick 1-hour charge
The shaver’s battery lasts for up to 40 minutes after a one-hour charge. A quick five minute charge gives you several minutes of running time for quick touch-ups. The razor also has a battery indicator to let you know, at a glance, when the battery is low, charging, or full.
Maintenance-free with included storage pouch
The kit is easy to clean and care for. All the attachments are fully washable under the tap and no maintenance or lubrication is required. A handy storage pouch is also supplied.
Battery status indicator
Battery light shows when battery is low, charging or full.
Why should you go electric?
Going electric means choosing to have the control and precision needed for stubble or a smooth shave. And Philips offers the full line up of electric tools that give more power to you.
How do I shave with an electric shaver?
First time users: Your skin needs to adapt to the electric shaver. In about two to three weeks your skin will adjust and you should be able to shave quickly with minimal to no skin irritation
- To minimise skin irritation: Thoroughly clean skin, shave with cream or gel, shave problem areas first, shave with the grain, and keep your shaver clean
- To avoid hair pulling: Trim the long hair first and ensure your shaver is fully charged before shaving
- To shave difficult areas: Stretch your skin, trim downwards, and apply gentle pressure
Can I shave with shaving cream? If so, how?
- Clean skin using hot water and soap
- Apply shaving gel or foam
- Begin shaving in a circular motion
- Run shaver under hot water to clean shaving cream from the shaving head
- Repeat steps three and four until foam is nearly gone or all areas of facial hair have been shaved
- Open shaving head and run hot water over it to remove hair and gel or foam
What if I want to shave dry?
- Clean skin using hot water and soap. Use a towel to dry skin
- IMPORTANT: Wait 15 minutes for your skin to completely dry
- Begin shaving in a circular motion over hair growth areas
- Open shaving head and run hot water over it to remove hair
How often do I need to replace the shaver head?
For best maximum performance and closeness:
- Shaving head: Replace every two years with RQ32
1 x YS527/17 handle
1 x cleaning brush
1 x protective cap
1 x power adapter
1 x user manual
2 year guarantee

In use it's easy to transform this unit from stubble trimmer to shaver and vice versa - the two heads just click on and off. The stubble trimmer has an adjustable cut control which although simple works well. The shaver attachment features two of the familiar Philips circular cutters with a collection compartment for the cut hairs. The handle is well shaped and easy to grip with an on/off switch and LED battery/charge indicator. The whole device can be rinsed under the tap as the handle and two heads are waterproof. The device won't work when connected to a shaver socket but you get around an hours operation from a full charge and you can top up the charge in an emergency by plugging it in for 5 minutes - the LED indicator does warn when the charge is getting low.
One gripe is that although a protective cover for the shaving heads is supplied contrary to the claims in the product particulars on this page no travel case is supplied. Not a deal breaker and you can improvise but a bit annoying.
The quality of shave is okay - in my opinion on a par with a good travel shaver. Remember there are only two radial cutters, so coverage is more limited and it requires more effort to shave your face, however, it is capable of a good shave albeit it takes a bit longer. The stubble trimmer works well too and the adjustable cutters will, with a bit of trial and error, give you the look you want.
In summary, this is a quality device from Philips which isn't quite as good at shaving as a full size three cutter shaver but passable and with a good stubble trimmer.
I had grown my beard out slightly, so that the trimmer would actually have something to cut. However, despite trying all of the different lengths, hardly ANY hair was actually removed. I tried going over the same part of my face at least 5/6 times, but still, nothing. It appears that this trimmer doesn't seem to work on all types of hair - maybe I'm just unlucky.
The actually shaving head seems to work fairly well, but overall, I wouldn't really recommend spending close to seventy-squid on a trimmer that might not actually work on your beard. Sorry.
FYI - my 50yo dad also tried the trimmer on his heavier, longer beard and again found pretty much the same thing, so he too reverted to a trimmer-only. Quite what the trimmer side of this 2-in-1 is aiming for, is a puzzle.
The heads are interchangeable bit of tugging required as they clip to the motor body. The razor feels good and though it feels like its quite cheep its very effective for a double rotary head shaver and is also very quiet when in use.
The clipper attachment has a simple slide which set the length you would like you stubble or in my case side burns at. Again quite quiet when in use.
Marks off for having one of those horrible continental two pin plug rather than a UK three pin plug, adapters can be brought from Amazon but that's beside the point. If I live in the UK I want a UK plug. I would expect the US Plug on a US sourced product.
Overall a nice product though it feels quiet cheep its very functional and light ideal for holidays etc.
To cut a long story short, the beard trimmer attaches, quite badly I think, on the unit and feels very flimsy. It almost makes you wonder if Philips designed this as a cheap travel shaver (which it would be fine as!) and then decided to change the brief.
I had no problems with battery life, and the fact it's waterproof like my 3 head unit is a bonus. All in all though, I'll stick with what I've got, I think.
It's a good device, but falls short of me being able to recommend it. It would make a good gift for a teenager, but they would eventually want/need to upgrade.
With the design needs of being a 2 in 1 razer, it does not work for my sensitive skin, but should be OK for normal non skin types. Whilst I won't be giving up my wet shaver for this product, it is quite clever, reasonably well made and if you want a stubble attachment 2 in 1 shaver, is quite a good buy.
