I’m covering a topic that isn’t something I have ever done before, or one that I have seen many other fashion bloggers speak about – shaving. For us ladies, shaving is a huge part of our lives as we always strive to have silky smooth legs and skin, which for me, wasn’t something that came easily. Until now.
I got sent this Philips Satin Shave Prestige Electric Shaver by the brand and have been trialing it for a few weeks now, getting to know how it works and what I like about it. This is my very first time actually using an electric shaver as I have always stuck to the razors in the past, but I can safely say that I will not be going back to one of those anytime soon!
I’ve recorded a YouTube video review sharing everything there is to know about this Philips Satin Shave Prestige Shaver and also showing you demos of it being used on my skin, so you can see exactly how it works. That video is just below, so make sure you watch it for a more in depth review. But, lets get to the information on the shaver first and what it’s actually like.
So what’s included? Obviously you get that beautiful box, in a purple/pink shade which is extremely feminine and pretty, but what comes with the shaver? It has the waterproof bag/pouch that you can carry everything in for travel purposes. The actual shaver itself (which is shown above with the skin stretcher cap already attached to it, but it does come separately). A bikini head trimmer for the bikini line, of course a charger, and a purple holder.
As you can see, everything is very girly in a white and lilac tone, which is something I prefer actually. I used to find that men’s shavers would work better, but they are masculine and large, so this one is perfect, all while being a lot more delicate for female skin. I think Philips did a fantastic job with designing it. I actually can’t be without it now and have to use it multiple times a week.
The Satin Shave Prestige Electric Shaver works both on wet and dry skin, so you can use it in the shower or wherever else you want to, making it extremely versatile. Plus, as it’s comfortable and completely gentle/soft on the skin, you can use it every day if you wanted to (not that you have to) so it’s ideal for eliminating the shaving burn/rash that we can get from razors quite regularly.
This shaver uses Philips most advanced shaving technology for a really close, silky smooth shave. It features flexing curved blades underneath protective foil guards, which follow your contours to make sure it doesn’t miss any hairs and cuts them as close to the root as possible. The multiflex head actually moves with you so it ensures that contact with the skin is kept as all times, making it super easy to chop those hairs off whenever or wherever you want. It even has comfort cushions either side of the shaving head for a smoother feel, all while protecting your skin. It’s so nice not getting burning or irritated skin, it’s like a miracle!
The handle actually fits effortlessly in your hand, making it easy to just glide it up and down over your legs for an easy shave. One thing I do recommend doing (and you can see in the video) is to pull your skin taught when you shave, as this cuts even closer again and never misses any hairs. That’s something that I have learned to do over the last few weeks of using it, since I have stretchy skin.
When it comes to charging, I found that it took an hour to an hour and a half to charge, but if you are desperate, it can also do a quick charge in 5 minutes which is suitable for one shave. Isn’t that amazing? You literally have everything you need to shave without issues, for a very long time, all for £70. I am literally obsessed with this shaver now and I can’t wait to use it all the time. I actually get excited to as I love that little crackling noise it makes as it cuts over the hairs!

This shaver was sent to me by Philips, but the opinions expressed are all my own.
