Best Electric Razors of 2015
We are now in the modern age where more and more people prefer to use electric shavers instead of using manual razor that can take away some of our valuable time on our daily routines. Just imagine doing these things all over again: wash the face, applying some shaving cream, then carefully shave using not-so-secure blade(s) sharper than a vampire’s fang (hope you’re fully awake) and wash the face again, then apply an after shave. And yet, our sensitive skin feels like it’s flaming up, plus with those irritating cuts that we get when using manual razors. Though, manual razor really gives us the closest shave possible. But now, with the advancement of technologies, electric razors are getting much better and can now offer us closer shaves plus, without taking away much of our valuable time while it prevents skin irritations, nicks & cuts from occurring. Let’s take a look at the best electric shavers and its corresponding electric razor reviews on how they’re doing this year 2013. (We consider our top 3 Shavers not just a product, but a dream-tool for men who shaved.)
Our number 1 choice for that dream-tool for men’s shaving is a high quality foil shaver that cares for the skin is the latest from Braun, the Braun 7-790cc shaver. It is also the least expensive “advanced shaver” among the top 3 makers of the best electric shaver of today which are the Braun, Philips and Panasonic shavers. What I like most about this shaver is that, it’s easy to maneuver and gives closer shave with a tender care for the skin as I could not see users of this shaver that complained on having skin irritation after using this shaver for quite some time. Yes, there are no redness even on sensitive skin areas including the neck and the jaw lines. With this electric shaver, you’ll really feel comfortable holding it even if your hands are wet. This shaver is for dry shaving only and is the best one available on the market. Even though it can’t be used for wet shaving, it is still 100% waterproof which makes it easier to clean under running water while shaving. It even has its own auto cleaning system that cleans, charges and lubricates the shaver so it comes out lemony fresh while you wait doing nothing much. Another great feature I found on this shaver is its 3 personalize mode settings which are the extra sensitive, normal & intensive settings where other advanced shavers failed to have. These settings are used to alter speed of its cutters to match on everymen’s skin type. Also, replacement heads and the cleaning cartridges are easy to find and prices mostly comes with discounts.
A very well known brand Philips, and now offering its latest line of shavers, the SensoTouch 3d. Philips Norelco 1280x shaver is the best rotary shaver of today and Philip shavers are well known in producing high quality rotary shavers with high tech designs. This shaver from Philips can give you the quickest shave you’ll ever have with an electric shaver. It maneuvers really well even on problematic areas like the neck and jaw lines and offers one of the closest shave you can get with an electric razor. This rotary shaver has 3 circular blades moving independently and flexes just right when it glides & adjusts in every curve of the face. So, for those men having difficulties shaving curvy areas of their face (and if the face has likely more curvy shapes compare to other men), then they should try this high quality rotary shaver and say no more worries when shaving those troublesome curvy parts of the face. But take note, there are some reports (just minimal) of some redness mostly coming from first-time users of this shaver, so it is best used for people that don’t have too sensitive type of skin. But the manufacturer addressed that once you get used with this shaver then those redness are likely not to occur again. Which is true in most shavers because we have to wait until our skin adjusts to the new shaving method. Fortunately, it can be used in both wet and dry shaving. So, with the use of a thick ladder shaving cream (where this shaver works best when using a cream) could prevent or minimize redness for men with sensitive type of skin. The Norelco 1280X SensoTouch 3d shaver also comes with its own jet cleaning system that clean, lubricates & charges the shaver making it ready for the next ultimate shaving experience. Btw, it really has a stylish design (really liked it) and is much quite to use since it doesn’t give a “buzzy” kind of sound which foil shavers are doing.
It is the newest shaver on our list of best electric shaver and it’s the latest offering coming again from a well known brand, Panasonic. The ES-LV81-K from Panasonic shaves just a bit quicker & closer compared to our number 1 choice, the Braun Series 7 shaver. Though, it has a bit of trouble when reaching those tight areas since it has a bigger head because of its 5 blade cutting system compared to the Pulsonic technology from Braun series 7 shaver. But, because of its 5 blade cutting system which makes closer shaves attainable and with its bigger head, you can shave quicker which makes perfect sense. There is little to NO skin irritations when using this latest shaver from Panasonic and is also a bit quiet compared to other foil shavers out there. This shaver is expensive but from time to time, you might get lucky to buy it at bigger discount rates (I’ve seen the price went down to $300). Moreover, this foil shaver can be used both on wet and dry shaving. So if you have the money and wants to have the latest & the most advanced foil wet/dry shaver, then this shaver is the perfect dream-shaver to have.
Although, this shaver isn’t the latest from Panasonic (released date: 2008-07-16) but it is the most affordable shaver of the best electric razor on our list and has been tested over the years and the Panasonic ES8243A shaver proved to give close shaves with 0 to minimal skin irritations, leaving its users well satisfied and garnered high ratings from its users. It uses a 4-blade cutting system with 30 degree inner blades that feature NanoTechnology. Nanotechnology is used to polish the sharpest 30-degree blades to attain even better cutting performance in its industry, plus it operates at 13,000 rpm that could cut through thick beards. The Panasonic ES8243A is easy to use, it is lightweight and sits comfortably on hands. Even if it doesn’t come with its own cleaning dock, it is still easy to clean under running water since it is 100% waterproof and can be used for both wet and dry shaving. You want the best bang for your money? You better get this shaver, especially for first time users.
5.) Panasonic ES-LA93-K Arc IV Shaver
Another great shaver from Panasonic, the ES-LA93-K Arc IV Multi Flex Dual Motor with Nanotechnology Electric Shaver. This electric razor can be used both for wet and dry shaving and comes with its own charging system, the Vortex cleaning system that cleans, dries and charges the shaver making it ready for the next use. This razor has a powerful linear motor that runs at 14,000 rpm. Many users of this shaver were happy on how close the shave when using this shaver. The ES-LA93-K is the best alternative if you prefer wet/dry shaving, where Braun Series7 only supports dry shaving, isn’t too expensive unlike the Panasonic ES-LV81-K, and comes with its own cleaning system not like with Panasonic ES8243A. It all comes down to your personal preference and budget wise.
