The Philips Ladyshave is by quite a distance, the best selling electric shaver for women in the UK. This shaver has been around for a very long time, and continues to sell very well.
Buyers rate this shaver highly at 4.2 out of 5 stars. It is both a wet and dry shaver and it is also cordless. That means that this shaver can be used for dry shaving.

Philips Ladyshave Electric Shaver Pros and Cons
Like any shaver there are usually good and bad points. We here at the Shaving Emporium prefer to advise our readers of both sides of the argument, before making any conclusions.
This is a small battery style shaver. It has a pretty small head covered by a foil which is what offers the protection to the skin. That is important for shaving under the arms, or around the bikini line.
We try and apply a common sense approach to reading reviews. Some of them are clearly left by some strange people, but we have always found that if you look carefully enough, you get some really useful information. It is that which we have summarised below.
As I pointed out already, there are 7% of poor reviews, but we have included both the good and the bad points, according to real life buyers.
- It is quick and easy to use and great if you are in a hurry
- The price is affordable and the quality is good
- It is well made, works effectively and very reliable
- Buyers said that it is very useful to have if travelling or going on holidays
- Also good for quick touch ups
- Mums tend to buy these for daughters
- Some buyers said it stopped working after a few months
- Some buyers were disappointed by the closeness of the shave
In summary the poor reviews said that this shaver did not give a close enough shave, or stopped working after a few months. Those that gave it a high rating said that the shaver was great for quick trims, useful when travelling and did a good enough job.

The small foil head on this shaver offers a lot of protection and prevents any nipping or tugging of the skin.
The shaver will not give you as good a shave as a waxing or any of the normal hair removing processes. This one is designed to be used when you need to do something quickly, or when you are travelling or on holidays.
Many women from the UK have bought this one for its convenience. It does a good enough job and can be used as a wet or dry shaver. The only maintenance it requires is to replace the AA batteries when required. The head will also need to be cleaned after use.
