Electric Shavers - Advantages and Disadvantages

Philips S5110 / 06 Electric Shaver

Electric shavers are ideal for men with problematic skin and in general for all those who want to save as much time as possible when shaving, but before you start to change your traditional razors for one of these machines, it is advisable that you review with us all advantages and disadvantages of electric shavers.

The latest models are designed to offer a very close shave with minimal effort because get the job done with fewer passes. Also, since they never come into contact with the skin, they are a good option for men with sensitive or acne-prone skin, as well as for mature men, as traditional razors prefer smooth and soft skin.

Electric razors are faster, since they do not require any pre-shave preparations, such as moistening the face with hot water or applying shaving foam. This fact makes it a perfect gadget for those who need a method to groom themselves without wasting a minute from anywhere.

And now the drawbacks. Like any high-tech grooming product, an electric razor requires a not inconsiderable initial investment. We are talking about 60 euros in the case of the simplest model and around 300 if we want to take home the most advanced machine. It is true that there are models with prices below 60 euros, but if we want to invest our money well, they are not advisable. They do not offer the same rush and are more easily spoiled.

Although they come very close, electric razors do not offer the same closeness as classic razors. And they may save us the time of pre-shaving, but we must remember that it is not to take it out of the drawer and that's it, but need regular maintenance. In addition, they only work at full capacity with a sufficient charge, which is why you have to be very attentive to their battery level so that they do not leave us stranded at the most inopportune moment, so it is not recommended for the forgetful.
