Philips Shaver


Attractive, Comfortable to hold, rash free. Cuts down on the expensive wet blades. My last Philips shaver lasted for 15 years! and I have high hopes with this one aswell. Comfortable shave, heads seem to rotate slower than my previous shaver but...

Close Shave but not quite as close as Gillette M3 wet shave, not far off though. Not sure where the 55 mins shave time comes from, but it lasts about a week anyway. Would have been a nice touch to have a little pouch for the brush in the zipped cover....

I like this shaver, not the quickest and it needs a fair few passes to get a close shave but highly recommended. A little expensive but you pay for what you get and this saver exudes long term quality.
