1. Which foam or gel can I use with my Philips shaver?
You can use any type of shaving foam or gel available in the supermarket or drugstore with your wet
and dry Philips Shaver. If you have sensitive skin, we advise you to use a shaving foam or gel for
sensitive skin.
Does using a foam of gel effect my shaver's performance?
Wet shaving with foam or gel uses more energy and can thus drain your shaver's battery much
faster. If you use your Philips Shaver for dry shaving only, the battery can last much longer.
Is it better to dry or wet shave with my Philips Shaver?
Both dry and wet shaving have their own advantages. It comes down to your personal choice of
shaving. Some points to consider are as follows:
1. Dry shaving can be done almost anywhere, even on the go, and there is hardly any cleaning
involved.
2. Wet shaving feels refreshing and is often beneficial for sensitive skin as it reduces friction and
irritation caused by a blade.
For more shaving tips, download the Philips Grooming App, available on both App Store and Google
Play.
2. What do the symbols on my Philips shaver mean?
If you would like to find out what the symbols and indicator lights on your Philips Shaver mean, read
our explanation in this article.
Charging lights
The battery symbol on you Philips Shaver lights up to indicate the charging status of your shaver.
When the battery is about to run out, the indicator blinks orange. While charging, this light can be
white, green or blue, depending on your shaver model.
