Electric razor or razor blades?

During all this time we have talked to you about what is the best time to shaveOn what is the perfect shave for your skin type or about some tips for a perfect shave.

Today we want to launch a question into the air, Would you rather shave with an electric razor or razor blades? Surely if you ask each person has a different opinion based on their experience, so Today I am going to be a little more objective and I am going to make a comparison of both methods, because each one has its advantages and disadvantages.

The knife

Our and advantages more obvious is that they are easy to use, fast and above all, you have no problem with draining the battery, since you don't have to put it to charge. When you pass the blade, it removes dead cells from our skin, and they are also smaller than electric razors, which allows for example that when you go on a trip, you do not have to go loaded or looking for space to store it. When you shave with a normal razor, the closeness of the shave is perfect and the finish too.

Among its drawbacks we find that many times we cause annoying cuts on the skin, irritations, problems in the curved areas of the face And, sometimes our beard hair stays inside, and if we are looking for a slightly better blade, the latest models that are going on sale are somewhat expensive and their blades wear out quickly.

The electric razor

We have many types on the market and their use is becoming more and more common. We can find them with heads with rotating blades, or with vibrating blades. This second option is easier to use and the finish is better if you are going to use it every day so that the skin gets used to it and you have a better hair shake.

Among its advantages we find that it's a pretty quick way to shave, especially for those lazy days where we barely have time to shave. As it is a dry shave we can use it anywhere, it is no longer necessary to have to plug them in since many of the new models have batteries that last a long time.

Among its drawbacks we find that they do not get in a great hurry, especially if we have very long beard hair, and that in difficult-to-shave areas such as the contour of the mouth or nose, the machine does not behave too well.

At first they are an investment, but it is worth spending money on this type of machine if it is going to be your daily shaving instrument later.

As you see, each has its advantages and disadvantagesNow you only have to decide which of them you decide on.

The contest has ended, the winner has been Kike Lozano from Madrid.
