Closest electric shave I've had - and it can be used wet too

Summary: This Philips shaver ticks all the boxes: quick to charge, long run times, quiet in operation and most importantly of all gives a really good shave. Used as a traditional electric shaver it performs well; so well that I have to say it's probably the closest electric shave I've had. No tugging or post-shave soreness either. But the ace up its sleeve is that you can shave wet with this shaver.
Summary: Other than not shaving and growing a beard, or visiting a barber, we men have 2 options when dealing with facial hair:- 1. Use a domestic razor blade (normally Gillette or Wilkinson Sword) and shaving foam, oil or gel. 2. Use an electric razor. There is little point in getting into the relative merits and demerits of the two systems because each has its followers who seem not to accept the possibility that the other might be better for them.
Summary: First off you should know that I'm a 'dyed in the wool' wet shaver, for me the job just isn't done unless you have had water and soap on your face. Over the years I've had electric shavers of one kind or another, usually as gifts and I suppose they worked well enough, but they never ever converted me or came anywhere close. The Philips Aquatouch however has made me reconsider.
Summary: This Philips shaver has just replaced a Braun foil shaver in my personal grooming setup. To do that it needed to be good. And it is. Forget the gimmicky pictures of some model using it with a face full of foam. This shaver will stand on its abilities as a dry shaver as that's how the majority of people will want to use it. Shavers like this are a time saver, especially in the mornings when the time we can allow for our appearance may be restricted.
Summary: There are basically three types of shaves - blade, foil and rotary. More often this divides into three camps - Gillette, Braun and Philips. I will admit now that I have used Braun for more years than I can recall, but thought I'd give this 'Wet and Dry' shaver a go - and was pleasantly surprised. Once you get through the bomb-proof packaging, requiring a really good blade of some sort to penetrate the plastic bubble it is sealed in, it is extremely light.

Summary: Excellent Product. Good service by Amazon and the supplier. The shaver is easy to use and meets my expectations. Wet shave is better than the dry shave. We need to understand that when we start using any product we need to learn how to use it in right way. After being not able to get smooth shave for first two time, I went through the videos on youtube and in particular by Phillips on Aquatouch models.
Summary: It's a great product. Saves time and no cuts. It looks great & value for money. Don't believe on false reviews. Even I had a doubt before buying this. But it's 100% reliable. I am totally happy to have bought this. It's not at all time consuming. Shaves perfect and smooth.
Summary: The Philips Aquatouch 890/16 is an ideal product for all of you who are tired of the multiple Gilette upgrades and still find it difficult to get a close shave. Philips Aquatouch guarantees a much better shave than any physical razor and is easy to operate. Use of the shaving gel along with the electrical shaver makes for a smooth shaving experience.
