Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 4 November 2013
I've tried the Philips Aqua Touch range before and wasn't hugely impressed so I was prepared to be similarly underwhelmed by this. On balance I would have to say it performed better than I expected.

This is at the lower end of the Philips range of wet dry shavers. It's a plain black, plastic bodied and light in the hand with very few design flourishes but the shaving heads look identical to those of it's more expensive siblings. It takes a long time to charge and the recharge time of 8 hours for a 45 minute shave time seems a little on the low side for modern shavers. It doesn't come with any edging tool so achieving straight clean lines at your sideburns isn't easy.

As to its performance as an actual shaver? As a dry shaver it's not great for me, it pulls at the skin and doesn't shave particularly well. Add warm water and shaving foam though and it becomes a different animal, although it takes a good number of passes to achieve a good finish it gets there eventually and with less irritation than I've had with other electric shavers. It feels pretty good in the hand and it's easy to clean, a simple rinse under the tap seems to do the job.

For me it still doesn't do as good a job as a good manual razor but it will certainly live happily in my cupboard for those days when I've forgotten to restock on blades and need a quick shave. It's not perfect but it's pretty decent.
