Electric Razors for Men
Mens electric razors are a great hair removal option for guys who prefer not to shave with an exposed blade. Other significant benefits include the ability to shave quickly and dry (meaning without water or shaving cream), which are both huge time savers and much less messy than wet shaving (which is done with water and shaving cream). There are two main types of electric razors for men: the rotary razor and the foil razor. The difference between the two is blade type. Foil shavers feature floating heads that glide smoothly over your face, with oscillating cutters that sit behind a perforated screen. Rotary shavers also have floating heads - usually three or four - to help negotiate the contours of your face; additionally, these razors feature spinning cutters that are situated behind a fine grid.
What Is The Best Electric Razor For Men?
Finding the best electric razor for you depends on your needs. Electric razors with a foil blade are best for guys who shave every day - they handle short hair well and the foil grid keeps the blades away from your skin, which can help cut down on shaving-related irritation. For men who often switch between bearded and clean-shaven looks, rotary shavers are the better option since they can handle long, thick facial hair. There is a third option for guys who are not looking for a close shave, but rather just a quick and easy way to keep their facial hair short and neat. If that's what you're after, look for a beard trimmer, which is specifically designed to handle coarse, longer facial hair. Trimmers also have the added benefit of different length settings, so you can customize the exact dimensions of your facial hair with ease.
CVS carries a wide variety of mens electric shavers, but we know that selecting the best option for you can be challenging. That's why we've put together this helpful guide of features to look for!
• Wet/dry shaving. While the main benefit of mens electric razors is the ability to shave dry, some guys may still prefer to shave in the shower or with shaving cream or gel. This is especially useful for men with acne or skin that is easily irritated. However, do be cautious and read labels carefully, as not all wet/dry shavers allow you to use shaving cream. If the option to shave wet as well as dry is important to you, look for an electric razor that offers both. The Philips Norelco 5110 Wet and Dry Shaver may be a good model for you to try.
• Power source. Do you travel frequently? A battery-powered electric razor may be the right choice for you. However, if you plan to shave frequently, a rechargeable model may be a better option, since a charge will usually last longer while still giving you ease of movement. Some models feature a cord, but try to look for one that is removable so that it doesn’t get in the way while you shave.
• Ergonomics. You want to make sure the electric razor is comfortable for you to hold in your hand, and that you can get a good grip. You don’t want it to slip while in the middle of shaving! You should also make sure the size and heft of the device works well for you; it should be comfortable to maneuver around all the angles of your face.
• Cleaning. Different electric shavers can be either easier or harder to clean. Generally, foil shavers are easier to clean than rotary shavers, but each model is different. Some shavers even come with a self-cleaning function. No matter which you choose, be sure that the cleaning requirements are feasible for you. It’s important to clean your electric shaver after each use to maintain the hygiene of your device.
No matter which product you choose, remember that the best electric shaver is the one that gives you a quick, comfortable, and convenient shave that looks and feels great!
Women’s Electric Razors
Electric razors are not just for men - women can benefit from using them, too! Most electric razors for women are foil shavers. This type offers the closest shave since it is better at picking up and cutting short, fine hairs than rotary blade razors. While electric razors can be used dry (meaning without water or shaving cream), many women prefer to shave in the shower - if you want to use your electric razor in there, be sure to buy a model that is approved for "wet" use. It's also a good idea to check the packaging for specifics - some women's electric razors can get only splashed with water, while others are approved for submersion. Be sure to choose the type that best fits your needs; for example, if you like to shave in the bath, you should consider a fully submersible electric shaver in case you accidentally drop it.
What Are The Best Electric Shavers For Women?
When choosing the best women's electric razor for you, you'll want to consider the job you want your electric shaver to do. Some are approved for multiple areas, while others are only designed to shave your underarms, legs, or bikini line. Women's electric razors should only be used on the parts of the body that they are designed for. Not only is heeding the manufacturer's directions the safe and smart choice, but it can also help avoid uncomfortable skin irritation that may result from unsanctioned use. There are many women's electric shavers to choose from, but remember that the best electric shaver is the one that consistently delivers a close, comfortable shave while fitting into your lifestyle and budget!
How Much Are Electric Shavers
Electric shavers for men and women can vary in cost based on a variety of factors, including the brand and how many functions the product can perform.
