Since I shop Amazon for a living, I always have one eye on the shopping giant’s best deals. It can be tricky finding the best deals and discounts but I tracked down this incredible saving on a brilliant piece of grooming kit that every Dad / brother / boyfriend / husband needs. 

Amazon’s Choice shaver is massively reduced right now, and you can buy the the Philips Shaver Series 5000 Wet and Dry Electric Shaver with money off.

Trust me, that’s a good deal. I, a seasoned Amazon shopper, should know. And it’s something that falls into the category of “all men need one” so it’s a winner in the category of great birthday presents for the man in your life.

What exactly are you getting for your money and what do verified Amazon reviewers think of the product? Let’s take a closer look...

What are Amazon shoppers saying about the shaver?

The shaver is an Amazon Choice product, which means it has been singled out by the retailer as being highly-rated, well priced and available to ship immediately. It has a decent 63% five-star rating and has over 2,400 positive reviews - and counting.

Verified shoppers give the shaver top marks for being comfortable to use, easy to clean and having a long-lasting battery.  “Use mine daily and charge maybe every 2 weeks,” says one reviewer - and this seems to be the general consensus.

“I’ve got to say this is the best overall shaver I've had in aeons,” says another happy shopper. “Great 50/50 combination of wet and dry shaving. Feels smooth when shaving and is great value for money.”

Another reviewer dubbed it: “The best shaver I have owned in years.” High Praise indeed! They explained: “ I purchased a Rimington, then after that a Panasonic. Neither of them compares to the Philips. Shaving takes half the time, in the mornings. Charges quickly and easy to use.”

Reviews on whether it’s easy to hold, with some shoppers saying it was a bit awkward, others saying it was fine once they got used to it. The main issue was that some shoppers kept knocking the on/off switch while shaving at first, until they got used to where it was.

Some customers were disgruntled that it doesn’t come with a plastic cap to cover the blades, while others didn’t see this as a problem.

This reviewer had a top tip to share with potential buyers: “I registered it with Philips and got an extended warranty for 36 months for free!”
