Philips S5600/41 Series 5000 Aqua Touch Electric Shaver with Smart Click Beard Trimmer

The Philips S5600/41 Series 5000 Aqua Touch is a men’s premium shaver with many great features. This is a rotary style shaver made in a dark blue casing with black anti-slip grip. It has a curved design that makes it easy to hold in the hand. The shaver can be used wet or dry, and is cordless and rechargeable.

Philips S560041 Aqua TouchThis shaver will give the best shave while wet, but you can also bring it on the road with you, and it’ll give you the convenience of a quick dry shave at any time of day.

This shaver is supposed to be safer than the average men’s razor, protecting ten times better than simply using a razor blade, meaning that there will be no nicks or cuts. You’ll find that you get a completely refreshing shave, but it’ll still be gentle, with less discomfort, and no redness or burning afterwards.

The rotary style head consists of three smaller rotating sections. Each of these smaller heads has five directional flexing, meaning that you’ll get an unbeatably close shave. These three heads will hug the contours of your face and neck. You’ll find that you don’t have to re-shave the same area of your face and neck again and again. This means that you won’t have any nicks, grazes, or razor burn after you’re done shaving.

The blades built within the Philips s5600/41 shaver have been designed with a MultiPrecision blade system. This consists of three rounded profile heads that glide over the surface of your face, and protect your skin.

The blades will lift them up, and then they’ll be effectively trimmed off. This shaver is also perfect for shaving even the shortest stubble off the face.

  • Brilliant shaver, I have tried wet shaving, foil & Phillips rotary & prefer by a long way Philips rotary – I have quite coarse hair which grows very quickly & find foil shavers are up to the job & end up using blades as well. This Philips 5000 Aqua Touch is the best I’ve ever used. Although not cheap it does a great job & actually find wet shaving with the likes of Gillette Mach system to be as or more expensive. On a personal basis I find a Braun foil shaver I had a few years ago (a gift) to be the worst solution of all, the foils were very expensive & perhaps because of my coarse hair they did not last well.
