Cheap, but see threads on here about the similar HS8460 and HS8020 HS8040 & HS8060 models as they are nothing like earlier type Philps shavers - you will either love or hate them, I hate them! :-(

Amazon & similar user reviews on same ranges worth looking at, and not just the "nicey-nice" Argos ones!

Anyone else got any reviews on this? Thinking about getting on for OHs xmas :)

Looks like a good deal. I don't understand why you'll need shaving conditioner when using an electric shaver.
#4
I have one of the older models of these and really like it, shaving in the shower with an electric shaver is great as I am rubbish with a blade shaver. Saves time in the morning.

The conditioner always used to be called moisturiser but clearly that was too girly for Philips.

To make more money for the companies concerned :roll:

They have to try and come up with new b/s ways - to do what you can do just as well with your old shaver, just to keep the market moving.

Same price on Amazon. Not a bad deal anyway. Voted Hot.

The really odd thing with this is you HAVE to shave in the shower as it doesn't collect the shaved hair !

So if you don't use it in the shower it would make a right mess.

Similar one at ASDA was 40... dont remember the model no though

Really! I was deciding weather to get this or another model last xmas and decided to go with the other because this one mentioned something about moisturiser when using a electric shaver and it didn't make sense to me. I never knew this one doesn't even collect the shaved hair either!
#10
amazon had this price for ages, good shaver mind.
banned#11
I always trim because i have sensitive skin and when i shave i get irritation and rashes, not due to ingrown hair but its when the hair pierces the skin.

Anyway, i used a foil shaver recently and i had the same problem with my skin. s this going to cause the same problem?

Reason i dont want to carry on trimming with a normal trimmer is because its not close enough, but the methods i have tried so far make my face sore and numb for 3 days and a few more just to recover. Any ideas people? Rep awaiting.

I brought a model up from this last week (with a stand and auto-refill of the cream)

I've been a wet shaver for the last 20 years, last time I tried an electric it felt like I had stuck my face in a cheese grater (that was a bloody uncomfortable night-shift!)

I must say I've been really impressed with the shaver, the cream really does help a lot to soothe the skin. A bit sensitive around the neck for the first couple of goes but now it's really easy wet or dry to shave in the morning and get a close shave.

It can be messy but wash it regulalry under the tap and it's ok. You don't have to use it in the shower

This is slightly better than the amazon deal as argos has 3% quidco at the mom and the £5 voucher if you can buy something else to go over the £50

I just found the model you seem to be talking about. £30 more than this one (now £78.31), but also heavily reduced at Argos. Seem to be a few advantages, so might give it a go. 1.5 hours to charge rather than 8 for this one, 40 mins instead of 30 mins shaving time, plus pop out trimmer that this one doesn't seem to have. On balance probably worth the extra £30 for me:

I've had Coolskin shavers for years, last one was the HQ6707 - i decided to replace it with one of the newer range (hs8020 i think) and its utter garbage. Unfortunately i've got a years supply of the moisturising lotion that you use in these to get through so i'm going to have to keep it. Battery charge time is ridiculously long, i get one shave out of it before it needs charging again, its not a very close shave, it irritates my face something silly (and i've electric shaved all my life) & it makes a right mess everywhere because theres nowhere to collect the shavings.
Replacement heads for these are almost as expensive as buying the whole thing again as well.
#17
These are garbage, don't see the point of them. Why bother having to wet your face for a shave with these? Just have a normal shave in half the time. Looks cool on the bathroom shelf though as thats where mine has been since boxing day last year!!

This is not progression or an improvement on wet shaving at all and a detriment to electric shaving.

Always on sale too.

Couldn't have put it better myself.

Used Philips shavers for DECADES, (and had Remington and Braun foil ones too) but they seem to have completely lost the plot with these :-(
I notice no-one is saying anything about the similar "Arcitec" ranges - they seem to be exactly the same, but even more expensive, and form the top of the Philishave range now - poor souls buying these have paid even more for the privilege!

Unfortunately shaving is a very personal thing and no two people are the same! Some will prefer wet shaving with a blade while others prefer electric either wet or dry. Also while one user may get on well with one brand or style of electric shaver (linear or rotary blades) another may not!

Given that batteries will fade in performance and cutting blades will need replacement then it makes sense not to spend too much on the shaver as it will need money spending on it no mater whose you choose and although it may not be 'green' to throw it away and buy another that is sometimes the best approach!

Given a set of blades/foil for most shavers is around £30 then you may as well get a complete new shaver if it can be has for £40 to £50 as you get new batteries and a years (or 2 in some cases) warranty.

I have found, for me, wet shaving with foam (or gel) using an electric shaver to be a good choice. I like the Philips Coolskin wet shavers but also recommend the Panasonic Linear drive shavers, but they cost more. I would like to try the Braun 340 as it is on offer for £40 but doubt it will be better or worse than the Philips. As my current Philips Coolskin is now nearly 2 years old and due for a head change, maybe I will give the Braun a go over replacing the Philips?

NO shaver with current technology will ever come even near to shaving as well as even the cheapest discount store disposable razor. End of argument!

Maybe there will be some future invention, but up to now they are all variations on a spinning or reciprocating blade chopping off what pokes trough a slot or hole in the head or foil. A razor blade is at an advantage straight away:The blade is sharper, as it is disposable and it has no guard to distance the skin from the blade, even before the invention of multiple blades to drag the hair out and chop it even shorter.

The benefit of electric shavers is convenience and perhaps even cost now that razors and blades can be so expensive, plus the cost of gels or foams; but performance is always behind a wet razor shave, whatever the adverts imply!

This is now £97 at Argos.

Argos have currently got the Philips HS8460 on offer for £48.94 so you are better off buying the complete shaver set, due to the fact that these are now discontinued and replacement heads are getting scarcer and currently the cheapest HS85 head available is on amazon at £49.98 + £2.55 P&P.
