Philips Ladyshave HP6306 Review
The look and the grip:
We have already mentioned that Philips has taken extra care to design this electric shaver for the beautiful women and it starts off with the look. A glimpse at it and you would well understand what I am talking about. With a pink and white color palate it’s definitely the one that will catch your eyes and add to the glamour of your bathroom essentials. The shaver has an anti-slip grip. So it’s perfectly suited for use even in the shower or with soaps without having the fear of it falling down. The ergonomics is tailor made to suit the lady.
The Philips Ladyshave HP6306 electric shaver is easy to use. It has a single power switch at the front to turn it on. Two buttons, one on each side of the shaver, helps in removing the head as well as the entire front cover.
The shaving head of the Philips Ladyshave Electric Shaver HP6306 is specially designed to remove unwanted hairs from the armpit, legs and bikini area. It has a single foil head at the centre coupled with two peripheral trimmers on either side of the head. The trimmers snip of the long thick hairs before they are cut off from the base by the foil head. The foil head has hypo-allergic properties that prevent the irritation and rashes and gives you a smooth skin after the shave. The head is so designed to avoid the nicks and the cuts and a gives you a close shave that can last for a weekend. The only disadvantage is that it takes a little time if your hairs have outgrown as in that case you need to trim them before going for the foil head shave and it doesn’t clean up from the roots like an epilator. But this shaver definitely saves you the embarrassment in case you don’t want to visit the parlor. The kit comes with a protective cover which fits on the head of the shaver and you can just drop it in your hand bag without worrying.
The shaver is 100% waterproof and can be used with equal easy in dry and wet conditions, though a little foam, gel or lotion can reduce the risk of rashes to almost zero. Using the shaver in completely dry conditions has been reviewed to be painful by some but this pain is almost negligible when used wet. The shaver can be used even in a shower. Though I don’t know how many of you would prefer shaving in a shower but there may be some who would love to and that’s exactly why I mentioned that it has been designed to suit the need of almost every lady. It’s not advisable to completely submerge the shaver into water.
Cleaning the shaver:
The shaver has to be cleaned after every use, to give you the perfect shave every time you use it. The shaver doesn’t come with a cleaning dock but can be easily cleaned under tap water. Use of hot water is advisable to remove the foams and gels that stick to the shaving head. The shaving head can be removed easily and a small brush, that is a part of the kit, helps in the cleaning process. Cleaning is rather easy and less time consuming when it comes to the Philips Ladyshave Electric Shaver HP6306.
Philips Ladyshave Electric Shaver HP6306 is cordless and is powered by 2AA batteries. This makes it easy to carry it anywhere you like. The AA batteries are readily available all over the world and are inexpensive. They also save you from being concerned about the international voltage in case of chargeable units and they do not wear out too soon. If you want to minimize the hackle of buying AA batteries every time they are dead, you can also go for rechargeable AA batteries that are also easily available.
