Master your shave with Philips

Wow, I cannot believe Christmas is just around the corner, it doesn’t seem that long ago I was unwrapping presents around the tree last year.

I don’t know if you’re the same as me, but every year I always struggle thinking of that perfect gift my loved ones can buy me for Christmas.

This year I think I’ve found the perfect present for any clean shaven Star Wars fans out there.   Philips have recently partnered with Star Wars to create five special edition shavers to celebrate the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi (pretty cool right).


Throughout the years, I have always changed my appearance by either growing stubble or then going back to clean shaven. In my late teens/early twenties, I started to grow stubble as every time I went out to a club I had to have my ID to hand (due to my young appearance), growing stubble made me look a lot older. Now I’m in my late twenties, I’m looking for that young look again and Philips have helped me achieve this by using their new Dark Side shaver.


Last week Philips sent me the stylish SW9700 to try out. Everything about the special edition shaver was so cool, even down to the premium boxed packaging. It really did make me smile unboxing as it took me back to the first time I watched a Star Wars film and instantly became a “Jedi” fan. The Dark Side is featured in the shaver with a dramatic red to black gradient with a hexagonal patterning and First Order logo power button. I’m going to admit, when I first got the shaver I did pretend I was fighting The Resistance with its lightsaber battery indicator ha-ha.

The Philips dark side shaver has exceptional comfort and closeness throughout my shave thanks to its V-Track PRO blades providing unbeatable closeness even on three day stubble. It was easy to use and has 8-directional flex heads making life easier when it catches 20% more hairs with every pass.


It left my skin feeling healthy and smooth and also came with a precision trimmer, which helps with tidying up those hard to reach areas.  The handy First Order embossed travel case and gift box makes this the perfect gift for someone this Christmas.

As my Dad is also a Star Wars fan, this has sorted out his Christmas present for this year (may the force be with us ha-ha).You can pick up this special edition Philips Dark Side shaver set for any Star Wars fans in your life, from John Lewis or Amazon for £329.99 which makes this the perfect Christmas gift.

Let me know which one you choose. Click here to feel the power of the force! 

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is in cinemas on 14th December
