Philips AquaTouch AT890 review

  (Rating Hidden)

You can use the Philips AquaTouch AT890 electric shaver dry, or with foam for a wet shave – great news if you value the flexibility of being able to choose between the convenience of dry and the closeness of wet. But does this electric shaver work...

Brill shaver

Good Shave, Poor Build

Best shave I've ever had but after a little over three years, the power button stopped working and now it's as dead as a dodo. I'll try a Braun next time.

Very poor durability

I've owned this shaver for 28 months now, a fact I only know because the blades are now blunt and I was curious to know how long they lasted.Philips recommend new blades after 24 months, so I guess that is just about right.The shaver is easy to use,...

Filed power switch

I have had this product for about 20 months and have been delighted with it. However the power switch has now failed. I took it back to my supplier (Peter Jones) who exchanged for a new an upgraded shaver.
