In the world of electric shavers you have two main choices to make between the two main types of electric shaver.You can choose between a foil type shaver made by the likes of Braun or you can opt for a rotary shaver made by philips.My personal preference is for the rotary type shaver,having used both types in the past i find the philips range to offer the best balance of performance and durability over the foil type system.


The Philips Senso touch offers a rotary shaver that uses the latest technology to give an easy to use product that offers a close and comfortable shave combined with ease of use and cleaning.The product is durable in use and performs very well at giving a close and troublefree shave time and time again.
The main feature is the three rotary heads that use a patented lift and cut technology along with three specialised tracks on each head to catch both long and awkward hairs and shorter stubble to ensure a very close shave in quick time.The heads are able to flex to the contours of the face keeping them in close contact to help improve shaving performance,giving greater efficency and comfort.
The product is also a sealed wet and dry shaving system allowing the use of water and/or cream and gels to minimise skin irritation and also allows th unit to be cleaned just by holding under a tap of running water.
The Senseo is a rechargeable shaver that has a quick charge option allowing you to charge the unit in 60 mins allowing for up to 15 days worth of shaving.The product has a very modern design and is comfortable to hold and operate.Also fitted with a prescision trimmer you have everything you need to give a fast,comfortable and close shaving experience.


I found the Product gave a very comfortable and quick shave when used and having already been used to using a rotary shaver i didn't have to wait a few weeks for my hairs to adjust to a new shaving system i was very happy with the shaving performance.I found that even the more awkward areas of my face and neck got a close shave after only a few strokes and i experienced relatively no irritation even round the neck area which i find is the most sensitive part of my face.I always tend to opt for a dry shave as i find this quicker and i am happy with the closeness of shave i get.

Cleaning of the product takes less than 30 secs and is very effortless with me just running some hot water over the rotary heads and leaving the unit to dry ready for my next shave.I get just over two weeks of shving from a full charge with me shaving everyday and there is a low charge LED indicator to remind me when the unit is running low and will need charging,The product fits nicely in the hand and i have no problems making sure i cover even the most awkward areas of my face to get a complete shave.The trimmer performs well on my sideburns and i am sure would be easy to trim a beard(if i ever have one) and can be also used on the back of the neck area (with the help of a mirror).

The product comes with a charging base that you place the unit in for charging.You plug the supplied charging lead into the base and not direct into the shaver,this can be a pain if you run out of charge as you can't use the product when charging you have to wait for it to get some power into it.


I found the performance and overall operation of the product to be excellent.Cleaning was fast and easy and the unit holds a charge for at least two weeks of daily use,it is a pain that you cannot operate from the mains but that isn't a major problem.My shave is close and comfortable and i feel this is one of the best performing electric shaving systems available at the moment and gets a thumbs up from me.


The product should be available in the price range of £120-£130 and is widely available from most major retailers both on the highstreet and online.Considering the price of high performance blades for wet shavers the product will pay for itself after a year giving excellent long-term value for money.I have found from past experience that the rotary heads can easily last at least two years without the need to replace.

    I use another Phillips model, and I find them to be a good brand to use.
