I ordered a new shaver head for my phillips philishave which arrived quicker than I expected, fitted like a glove and best of all was actually cheaper than I would have got it from Philips. ShaverSpares come highly recommended and I will have no hesitation using them again
I actually placed two orders for a work colleague who isn't at all computer savvy and therefore doesn't have an email address to make on-line orders. Despite this they managed to navigate your website with ease to find the item they wanted, matching it it their shaver model, with me completing the order for them all within 5 minutes. Both orders took the same amount of time to arrive (2 working days) Strangely the first was packaged in a jiffy bag which unfortunately my dog managed to swipe from the postman (hence the second order) which was sent in a much sturdier box (although not at my request) Every part of the process was perfect, with the exception of the first being sent in just a jiffy bag. I understand it was the fault of my dog; however the replacement foils for a razor are pretty weak by the nature of their design so I think to post them in a box every time would make sense. All in all I would definitely use Shaver-Spares again myself and would without hesitation, recommend them to a friend.
What can cause a foil to fail??
Taking Care Of Your Razor. Electric razors are easy and fast to use, but, like any appliance, they do need some maintenance in order to keep them working properly.
* Clean the cutting blade and foil screen regularly. Most electric shavers need to have their cutters and foils brushed out after every second or third shave. Use the small brush that comes with the shaver, and never brush the foil itself. Open the shaver in accordance to the manufacturer’s instructions and brush and blow the internal cutters. Some models offer a separate cleaning solution that may be used.
* Keep the foil and cutter lubricated. Most electric shavers can be lubricated using a spray lubricant or Oil offered by the manufacturer. Using a pre-shave face solution can also help lubricate the foil and cutter (pre-Shave solution is available from Boots the chemist).
* Change the blades when needed. Foils and cutters generally need to be changed once a year. More often if the user fails to clean and lubricate them properly. Change the foil and cutter at the same time for best results and to avoid injury.
* Always replace the dust cap to protect the foil when not in use, any minor tap or knock on the foil can cause an indent that will become a small hole once the cutter has had time to wear it down.
