Ask any guy about shaving and he will most likely roll his eyes at the thought of having to go through the process of trimming his facial hair.
Unfortunately, we can’t all never shave and grow huge hipster beards, so the majority of us have to shave with a (probably blunt) razor or use a sub-standard electric shaver that either leaves us with cuts, skin irritation or does a poor job of making you look slick and presentable.
But it doesn’t have to be that way though. You see…you’ve most likely not acquired a decent shaver and are now just settling for average, whereas you should totally be investing in a quality electric shaver. And it doesn’t get any better than the new Philips 5000 and 7000 Series shavers.
They are like the luxury supercars of shavers and I’ve got one of each to give away. Sounds good? Then keep reading and if you’re a lady then get involved, because Valentine’s Day is coming up and your man will thank you to no end if you give him either of these.
Check these bad boys out.
Those are the benchmarks in the shaving world my friends. Cutting edge technology.
Not just any shavers. Have a look at what they are capable of.
THE 5000 RANGE:
Developed for the mover and shaker, the Philips AquaTouch Wet & Dry electric shaver protects the skin, while providing a refreshing shave. The AquaTouch shaver’s rounded profile glides across your face, as the MultiPrecision blades and flexible head lift hairs for a fast, close shave without the dreaded nicks and cuts.
With the AquaTouch Wet & Dry seal, you can opt for a quick yet comfortable dry shave or wet shave with gel, foam or even under the shower. The shaver’s intuitive display will at a glance inform you of power and cleaning levels, ensuring there are no surprizes or delays.
Either way, the Li-ion batteries will carry you through about 15 shaves before you will need the 1 hour charge for full power or just 5 minutes for a quick touch-up.
Another addition to the range is the Philips 5000 Series dry electric shaver with Turbo+ mode. This shaver is all about speed and efficiency, with 20% more power speeding through even dense parts of your beard.
The multifunctional machine will cater to your entire grooming routine with a nose and ear trimmer and a click-on skin-friendly moustache and sideburn trimmer. The 5-directional head raises and cuts all hairs and remaining stubble, for a smooth shave in a shorter space of time.
THE 7000 RANGE:
The Philips 7000 Wet & Dry Series shaver takes the edge off shaving.
Designed specifically for sensitive skin, its comfort rings with unique antifiction microbead coating allows the shaver to glide across your face, gently lifting hairs for a close and sensitive shave with the double blade.
Philips specially-designed blade system will help lift even your finest hairs to its ideal cutting point for a closer shave, without the irritation and damage. The powerful battery allows 50 minutes of cordless shaving after just an hour of charging.
Select shavers in the Philips 7000 range also comes with a cleansing brush, developed for gentle treatment on sensitive skin. The brush simply clicks onto the shaver for use together with the cleanser of your choice. The 32,000 active bristles thoroughly and gently clean even the hardest-to-reach areas of your face for smooth and healthy looking skin.
The Philips 5000 and 7000 Series shavers are available at selected Clicks and Dischem stores; the Philips 5000 Series ranges from R1399 to R2899, while the Philips 7000 ranges from R2399 to R2599 for the top-end shaver.
