The Secret to a smooth, clean shave (Philips Aquatouch)
Tired of nicks, cuts and rusty blades? It’s time to go electric!
When it comes to truly good grooming, a smooth shave is a must for men, especially for business meetings, religious gatherings, or a special date. But a lot of men have grown wary of razors—it’s a hassle to put on and wash off shaving cream, a burden to replace rusty blades, and literally quite a pain to suffer nicks and cuts.
For a fast, easy and pain-free way to get a killer shave, it’s best to go electric. And with the Philips AquaTouch wet-and-dry shavers, you can get a smooth, clean shave—even while in the shower.
The Philips AquaTouch comes in two models, the AT890 and AT750, which are both designed to give a comfortable dry shave and a refreshing wet shave. The AquaTouch features an inbuilt Aquatec seal which makes the shaver fully waterproof and optimized for use with shaving gel or foam. This means enhanced skin comfort and minimal skin irritation.
The Philips AquaTouch also has rounded low-friction protection caps that adjust automatically to the curves of your face, as well as a Super Lift & Cut feature that lifts hairs away from the skin before cutting them to guarantee a close shave.
The AquaTouch AT890 is a shaver that utilizes DualPrecision shaving heads that have slots to shave the normal hairs, and holes to shave even the shortest stubble. The full width Pop up Trimmer is the perfect accessory of this model to groom your sideburns and moustache. In addition, the AquaTouch AT890 3-minute quick charger provides enough power for one shave.
Both the AquaTouch AT890 and AT750 models can function for more than 40 minutes with cordless power which is equivalent to at least 14 shaves.

Furthermore, the Philips AquaTouch has been shown to deliver a satisfying shave along with less skin damage compared to a regular blade. In a recent study, dermatologists found that 75 percent of the users tested experienced zero nicks or cuts from wet shaving with the AquaTouch after 3 weeks of use. This is compared to users who experienced an average of 13 nicks and cuts after using their own razor blades.
In terms of reliability and convenience, the Philips AquaTouch also delivers, as it has a long-lasting battery as well as self-sharpening blades that do not need replacing for three years. This means long-term affordability, with the AquaTouch being 40 percent cheaper than blade shaving over three years.
So for those looking to take their grooming to the next level—and enjoy less hassles and costs in the process—give the Philips AquaTouch shavers a try.
