How To Shave With An Electric Razor
◗ Use this razor for its intended household use
as described in this manual.
◗ Shaving with a clean, dry face gives the best
results.
C 1
Put It To The Test & Shaving Tips
◗ 21 Day Trial and Conversion Process. It is a fact that your skin and beard need time to adjust to a new shaving system.
◗Use your new razor exclusively for 3 weeks to
fully enjoy the closeness of a Philips Norelco
shave.
◗ At first you may not get as close a shave as you expect, or your face may even become slightly irritated. This is normal since your beard and
skin will need time to adjust. Invest 3 weeks and
you’ll soon experience the full joy of your new
razor.
◗Stick with it! If you alternate shaving methods
during the adjustment period, it may make it
more difficult to adapt to the Philips Norelco
shaving system.
◗If you are still not convinced after 21 days,
Philips Norelco will refund you the full
purchase price as long as the request is
received within 45 days of purchase.
15
Turn razor ON by pressing the on/off
button once. The blue light ring around
the button will light to indicate razor is on.
Shave against the direction of beard growth
using both straight and circular movements.
◗ When you turn the razor on or off, all lights
will light up and then the remaining battery
capacity will be shown for a few seconds.
2
Stretch your skin with your free hand so
blades can lift and cut whiskers. Gently
press razor to skin so the floating heads
can follow the contours of your face. DO
NOT press too hard. Too much pressure
can pinch the skin into the combs.
