Week 3 of using this Philips Aquatouch AT1890 electric shaver, and I would say I'm might pleased with it. This shall be a short post on my experience using this electric shaver versus my previous blade shaver. Now I'm a strong advocate for blade type of shavers, hence my apprehension when handed this device due to the fear of added maintenance and poor shaving results.

In case you haven't read my first post on this new gadget of mine, do check it out here. (Philips Aquatouch AT890: Shaver For The Modern Men? ). Being a strong believer in the close shave provided by my previous trusty blade shaver from Gillette, when handed the Philips Aquatouch AT890 electric shaver, I scoffed at its abilities to provide a close shave. Hey, check out my previous blade below, and tell me if you're like me who trusts in the blade.
|My old shaver, the Gillette Mach 3 Turbo|
If compared other blade shavers, the Gillette Mach 3 Turbo does an awesome job handling my manly curves around my face (do ignore the fats surrounding it though). I trust enough in it to always provide me a close shave no matter day or night when I needed it most, hence it stayed with me for many great years, until the Philips Aquatouch AT890.
|I will miss you, my trusty blade|
So what changed my mind, and why did I choose the new electric shaver over my trusty blade? Well, listen on then. For starters, even though my Gillette Mach 3 Turbo blades managed to give me a very close shave, but the nicks and cuts were getting too frequent for comfort. Blame it on my pimples around my chin area, but each time I use it, the blades were rather painful and more often than not gave small cuts no matter how careful I am.

Then comes the Philips Aquatouch AT890 electric shaver. It does everything my Gillette could do, minus the nicks and cuts. I have even tried using force to push the shaver on my chin while shaving, and all it does is flex its 3 blades to fit the contours, giving a really close shave.
Heck, now I could even shave the hardest spot below my chin easily, without any fear of coming out bleeding. You must see it to believe, I would probably be doing a video for my next post, but for now, I'm pretty impressed with the capabilities of this gadget.
