Sensotouch shavers can be used with any shaving gel or cream. It will not harm the shaver. Philips makes no recommendation as to which type is best. Just use whatever favorite brand that you have

Do you need wet skin before you shave it?

You don't have to be wet before you shave your legs, but you do need some kind of barrier, such as shaving cream before you put the razor on your skin.

However, having a bath or shower up to ten minutes before you shave your legs will soften your skin and relax the hair follicle. If you use a mild exfoliator on your skin before you shave it can also help to get rid of dead skin cells.

Shaving with an electrical shaver is considered to bet wet or dry shaving?

Most electric shavers are dry, meaning that you don't need any gel or a shaving cream in order to shave although there are some unique wet electric shavers' models on the market.

How should I use a shaving cream?

You should apply your cream or gel by massaging it in a thin, even layer. If you are using glycerin-based shave soap, apply an even layer using a badger bristle shave brush. The idea is to use enough cream to lubricate your skin and soften your beard while helping the razor glide smoothly with minimal irritation; too much cream or gel will cause your razor to skip and clog.

I bought my husband a new senso touch razor i would like to know how they rate with other shavers also are they hard to clean

Hi cuke693,

I work for Philips Consumer Lifestyle and received a Senso Touch 1180X/40 for free as part of a Home Test. I have never been a fan of electric razors because of incredibly sensitive skin and fast growing facial hair. I do however, use the Senso Touch 1180X/40 in between shaves with a manual razor, and I am very happy with it. It doesn't irritate my skin, the shave is very close, and use/care is easy and ideal. I also like the fact I can use it safely and comfortably in the shower, too.

Depending on the model you have, you can find great resources at Just enter the specific model number to access the product specific page which includes FAQ's, manuals, videos, chat, etc. (

As for cleaning, these are the instructions for the 1180X/40 (again, for model specific information, visit the above website):

Regular cleaning is important to maintain an optimal shaving result.

1. Turn the shaver on.
2. Rinse the shaving unit under a hot tap.
3. Pull the top part of the shaving unit from the bottom part.
4. Rinse the bottom and top part under a hot tap for 30 seconds.
5. Reassemble the shaving unit and carefully shake off excess water. Let the shaving unit dry completely.

Can I use my RQ1250 Philips Electric Shaver with shave cream?

Hi there! I checked the manufacturer and they said that any shave cream is fine, or foam, as long as you are wet shaving..... The rep told me to also make sure that the shaver is cleaned with very warm to hot water.... Thanks for the question! Guy
