What can I use my Philips SmartClean System for?

If you are curious about the functionality of your Philips SmartClean System please read further on.

Uses of the Philips SmartClean System

The Philips SmartClean System can be used to charge, clean and lubricate your Philips Shaver. The SmartClean Plus (model number 5.2) also comes with a drying program.

The Philips SmartClean 5.1 system is compatible with all Philips shavers in Series 7000 and Series 5000 (S51xx – S56xx).

The Philips SmartClean 5.2 system is compatible with all Philips shavers in Series 9000.

Where can I find the model number and the serial number of my Philips shaver?

You can find the model and serial number of your Philips shaver on the reverse side of the shaver. The serial number consists of 9 digits.

Can I charge my Philips shaver after every shave?

Yes, you can recharge your shaver after every shave. The battery in your Philips shaver is a lithium-ion battery which allows you to recharge it every day.

Which foam or gel can I use with my Philips shaver?

You can use any type of shaving foam or gel available in the supermarket or drugstore with your wet and dry Philips Shaver. If you have sensitive skin, we advise you to use a shaving foam or gel for sensitive skin.

Does using a foam of gel effect my shaver’s performance?

Wet shaving with foam or gel uses more energy and can thus drain your shaver’s battery much faster. If you use your Philips Shaver for dry shaving only, the battery can last much longer.

Is it better to dry or wet shave with my Philips Shaver?

Both dry and wet shaving have their own advantages. It comes down to your personal choice of shaving. Some points to consider are as follows:

  • Dry shaving can be done almost anywhere, even on the go, and there is hardly any cleaning involved.
  • Wet shaving feels refreshing and is often beneficial for sensitive skin as it reduces friction and irritation caused by a blade.
  • Can I replace the battery of my Philips shaver?
  •  Your Philips Shaver comes with a customized built-in battery. Do not try to replace the battery yourself. If you are having trouble charging your shaver read our article on this issue or contact us for further help.
  • How do I get the best results with my Philips Shaver?
  • To get the best results from your Philips Shaver, follow our tips and tricks outlined below.
  • Allow your skin an adjustment period
  • If you are a new user of the Philips Shaver, keep in mind that your skin needs to adapt to the electric razor. This means that your skin may feel slightly irritated in the beginning. Allow yourself an adjustment period of two to three weeks with your new Philips Shaver.
  • You can also use a gentle moisturizer or aftershave lotion to minimize skin irritation after shaving.
  • Pre-trim your long facial hair
  • Shaving long hair can be uncomfortable and may lead to skin irritation.
  • If you have not shaved for a couple of days and have a heavy beard, it is a good idea to trim your beard before you start shaving. This technique also helps in reducing shaving time.
  • Some Philips Shavers come with a trimming attachment that you can use to trim your beard. Otherwise, use your normal beard trimmer.
  • Be gentle
  • While shaving, it is important to be gentle, especially if you have sensitive skin prone to irritation. Do not press the shaver too hard against your skin. Only apply a gentle pressure which makes your facial hair stand upright and makes it easier for the shaver blades to catch and cut them.
  •  Gentle pressure also reduces friction between the shaver and your skin, resulting in a more comfortable experience.
