I have had problems with shaving for years. my Skin is very sensitive and I get razor burn every single day. I can't use manual blades as the strip wears out after 1 use, and after using my Philishave 8894 and getting razor burn again, i thought sod it, and i went out and spend the money on this model. Fantasic,!! no shaver burn and the clean and charge centre is excellent! If you are considering getting this baby, go for it, you wont be disappointed!
