Frequently Asked Questions Should I wet or dry shave with my Philips shaver? Ultimately it's personal preference, but check out our short video, or read the points below, for a quick guide to the two methods. Some points to consider when choosing wet or dry shaving: Dry shaving can be done almost anywhere, even on the go, and there is hardly any cleaning involved. Wet shaving can be refreshing and often beneficial to those with very sensitive skin as you won't get the same friction and irritation as you would expect from a razor blade.
