    Great Shaver with a comfortable design

    2013-11-09

    Not having a coarse beard, I've often veered away from electric shavers as most that I have used haven't given a clean and comfortable shave. However, having used the AquaTouch I can safely say I'm massively impressed and won't be returning to ordinary razors any time soon. The waterproof design means I can use it in the shower if I'm in a rush, and the blades still provide a close and comfortable shave. Shaving every few days on a thin beard I was worried would be uncomfortable, but even without the use of foams or oils I get a smooth shave with no reddening or discomfort. Will definitely be recommending it to others.


    Nice piece if kit

    2013-11-09

    I have only used this for a short while but I am vey happy with its performance so far. Very solid build quality and well designed.


    Excellent product let down by design fault

    2013-11-09

    Gives an excellent shave but only time will tell how long and consistently it is able to maintain that standard. Let down by absence of beard/sideburn trimmer, a serious fault in the design discovered when I got the product home.


    the features of this product are very poor

    2013-12-12

    it does not give close shave and it hurts also the instructions are very poor


    Great if you like electric shavers

    2013-12-10

    I tried this product both dry and wet. The design is great. Comfortable in your hand, very easy to clean, especially as its waterproof. However, i was expecting an electric shaver to be much quicker than my normal razor and i found this not to be the case. This was the first time i used one, so it may be simply down to my lack of technique, but i needed to go over my face many times to finish the job.


    The produst is extremely easy to sue.

    2013-11-09

    Having not used an electronic shaver before I have been converted. The simplistically of the product is refreshing - no fancy bits here and there just a good quality shaver doing its job.


    Big improvement on dry shave models

    2013-11-09

    I've been using a dry shave model of Philips for a few years and noticed a real difference when switched to Aquatouch. I use it for wet shave with proper shaving cream, and it shaves cleaner and is gentler to sensitive skin.


    Extremely easy to keep clean

    2013-11-09

    For the budget end of the market this truly is remarkable . The battery life is great, you can grab it after a week and its still fully charged. That's handy when the wife constantly unplugs my razor for her straighteners. The wet and dry function is also just as impressive I can step straight out the shower and trim. And the cut is close and smooth, even the odd lay flat hair is picked up and cut.


    A really good quality shaver for everyday use

    2013-11-09

    This shaver gives a really good close shave, is easy to use, and all of the parts feel well made and sturdy which hopefully means I won't need to buy another one for a while. The best feature for me though is the ability to rinse the shaver under the tap / shower when you're done. It means you can use it as a dry shaver or a wet shaver depending on how much time you have available. The battery life seems good and I'd certainly recommend it to a friend.


    Great shave Wet or Dry

    2013-11-29

    Not having a coarse beard, I tend not to electric shave. Most electric shavers i have used in the past haven't given a clean comfortable satisfying shave... until now! After using the Aquatouch I am very impressed. So much so I now choose this over my usual method of razor blade. I can use this shaver in the shower and I can use it on a longer stubble without any discomfort even without gel or foam. This shaver is easy to clean, just pop the head open and rinse under the tap. Job done! I would definitely recommend this shaver.


    Easy to use with great battery life.

    2013-11-09

    Great shaver, easy and comfortable use, it makes light work of a very mundane task. Its performance as a wet shaver is not quite as good as a dry shaver but that suits my personal preference anyway. Great design which gets most hairs in the awkward spots easily. The battery life is particularly impressive, I charged it fully when first got it and have not had to charge it again since I have had it. By far the best electric shaver I have used, It looks smart and does not make any mess.


    Easy to use and gentle on your skin

    2013-12-06

    My overall review is good, I was not suprised since the product have not changed that much since my first shaver from mid nineties. The design is better, the shaver is waterproof and blades are more gentle towards your skin. And why change a good product? No, the product it self doesn't need to be amended but the overall experience can through packaging. To summarise, imagine if the iPhone would be packaged in a box 10 times its actual size with bad paper and a lot of unnecessary information.


    Good value razor

    2013-12-06

    Having used electric razors for many years I was surprised how well this 'budget' razor performed. I have also tested the top of the range and actually thought the this razor gave a better shave. I have always had a slight dislike of the Philips three head configuration shavers as I feel that too much pressure is needed for a close shave resulting in a slightly uncomfortable, scratchy experience. It doesn't have the 'floating head' of the more expensive shavers, but using it as a wet shave razor all that went away and it was an easy and comfortable shave. It is missing the very useful hair trimmer accessory of the other other models which is a shame.


    Easy to use, but no first time clean shave.

    2013-11-09

    First impressions were good. Nice design, good weight to it and easy to use with shaving gel and cleaning afterwards. But the performance lets it down. Cannot get clean first shave, need to shave twice and even then reaching the edges and nooks to ensure no missing bristles. So it takes twice as long as a wet razor would without a guaranteed close shave at the end.


    Average

    2013-11-09

    I normally use a standard razor blade, and after using this new electrical shaver twice, i will be continuing to use my standard razor as i feel its quicker and i get a closer shave.


    very comfortable shave

    2013-11-09

    It does wet and dry shaves and so far has given me a nice clean shave used along with foam and not cut me once. The compartment opens up easily at the push of a button. It is quite solid and fairly heavy for an electric shaver, but its weight makes it feel solid more than bulky or heavy - if you know what I mean. Like most Philishaves, the battery seems to last quite a while before it needs to be charged again, which incidentally takes less time to charge fully than you may think. The only bad comment would be the 8 hours charge.


    Great and easy to use shaver

    2013-11-09

    The shaver has a handy use however the design could be improved to make it more slick like the Senso Touch. The machine itself works fine but don´t get all stron hairs. For the daily use this shaver is perfect.


    Good results with this product

    2013-12-06

    I am liking this shaver, have tried it dry and wet and I do prefer a wet shave with it. Seems less harsh on skin. Either way though it performs well and gets closer than conventional wet shave with manual razor.


    not worth the money

    2013-12-06

    very over priced takes over 8 hours to charge for 45 minutes use have to go over sme area at least 5 times to get average results theres better and much cheaper products uot there would NOT recommend this shaver attall.


    Quiet operation and comfortable shave

    2013-12-15

    Compared to my old AA cells operated Philips Shaver, this one is more quiet and rather comfortable. It follows the contour of my face , chin and side burn too. The most impressed thing is made in the Netherlands, not China! Well done to Philips, with such a highly acclaimed manufacturing facility in the Europe.


    Very close and quiet shave!

    2013-12-31

    Very close and quiet shave, excellent value too! No need for water at all really.


    Great shaver

    2014-01-27
