Review by Shavers UK Expert Luke Gisby
Easy, close, comfortable & stylish. This is how I would describe this great value Philishave package. Philips Philishaves are the classic electric shaver and this one sticks with the traditional values, but also uses the latest technology to create a great shave.
I always like the ease of use of a Philips. You just 'plug and play' in terms of you turn the shaver on and move all over the face in any direction. With foil shavers you have to be a little more 'linear' in the shaving motions. With the Philips you can shave in any direction including a circular motion which is very effective at picking up the hairs which grow in any direction.
With the head unit on this HQ8270 it pivots back and forth which when linked with the reflex frame means the cutting heads can adjust superbly well to the contours of your face.
The cutting heads are top of the range and use the latest technology to provide a close comfortable shave. This may sound like a manufacturers promotion, but I personally feel it does exactly that - provides a close comfortable shave.
The cleaning system is a welcome improvement. The old cleaning system wasn't all that effective and when compared to Braun which have the best cleaning systems it struggled. However this new system is a vast improvement and cleans and lubricates the head unit very well.
If you are looking for a shaver which has top of the range performance and specification at a great value price then this is the shaver for you.
