Excerpt: The Philips AT 890 aqua shaver is an electric shaver made by the electrical Giant Philips, one of if not the leading company in shavers. It is designed to be used for both wet and dry shaves and can be used with or without shaving cream. Look - As there is no above logo, the shaver looks like a standard Philips shaver with a blue and silver streak along the side with three shaving heads that bend to the face shape for a closer shave.
Philips Aquatouch AT890 wet and dry rechargeable electic shaver
22 September 2012
Summary: Always been a wet shaver, but decided to go electric instead and discovered that I could have an electric razer that could give me a wet shave while I showered!Results are good because my stubble is wet and softer than a dry electric shave. I recharge the battery once a month even though it still has charge, and the recharge only takes 1 hour. Brilliant!
Summary: Having brought a number of Philips Shavers I wanted to purchase a new one to replace a 10 year old shaver that sadly had come to the end of it's life. I am so impressed with the AT890/17 AquaTouch. It is a a wet and dry shaver - works great in both ways. Perhaps the best shave I have ever had. Great battery charge - really pleased.
Summary: Got this shaver as a gift for my grandsons 18th birthday He- like a lot of the young guys today is always a problem to buy for. He did moan that he did not have a adapter plug? Can not win can you.got him one. so all is well.Seemed to like it??. personally This is a big improment to my Philips shaver I have had for a mumber of years which is still going strong.
Summary: Have been a Phillishave fan man and boy (50 years),but a year ago I was seduced by the the promise 0f 60 min's shaving per charge from Remmington. The 60 min's shaving was quite accurate but the build quality was poor,the plastic housing for the spring clip on the shaver head just fell apart.
Summary: I bought this form Amazon for £61.50 (It seems to have gone up in price since then). For years I avoided rotary-head shavers because logic would seem to dictate that a foil shaver must give a closer shave. A couple of years ago, I needed a new shaver and bought a Philips SensoTouch (it being the only wet and dry model that they had in the shop).
Summary: As a lifelong wet shaver, and previous electric razor user, I was a bit dubious about some of the claims made for this razor. However, facial irritation caused me to rethink my approach to shaving and I am really delighted that I did so. Admittedly, I have always used the Philips Aquatouch AT890 in wet-shave mode but it gives as good a shave as a traditional blade razor and will give several days shaving without the need to recharge it.
