Choosing one from thousands of options is a real challenge. We are talking about electric razors. Is selection with the best models on the market It will help you if you have decided to switch from manual razors to electric razors or need to replace your old razor with a new one.
Discover the best rated shavers classified by ranges: Going from affordable and travel razors to exclusive next-generation models, to excellent mid-range razors.
If what you need is a small, cordless shaver that you can take anywhere without problems, there are models that fulfill their function very well and that, in addition, are quite affordable. Consider the elegant Braun M-90 MobileShave. It is small, battery operated and can be washed under running water. Another well-rated travel shaver, especially when it comes to the close, is the Philips PQ203 / 17. It is a rotary shaver with battery operation and self-sharpening blades.
Since they have little power, offer their best results in beards of a few days. Also, it is especially important to keep the blades free of any debris that may interfere with the cutting process. Use the included brush after each shave to get the most out of it with each new use and reduce the number of strokes.
La Philips OneBlade QP2520 / 30 it is a great option for the tightest budgets. Is about a machine that has very good ratings despite its low price. It integrates a 3-in-1 system (trims, lines and shaves), can be used wet and dry and has a long battery life.
If you are looking for an impeccable rush, keep in mind that this one needs more passes than other models. And repeatedly shaving the same spot can cause irritation, especially in sensitive areas, like the neck. The positive side is that the Philips OneBlade QP2520 / 30 is kinder to sensitive skin by putting less pressure on the skin.
La Philips S1510 / 04 offers a better hurry. The Braun economic model is a shaver to consider within this price group if you do not mind that it can only be used dry.
Heating is not something exclusive to inexpensive razors, but to all of them, as well as anything motorized in general. But naturally they are the ones that tend to get hotter and faster. Shave sensitive areas, such as the neck, first to avoid contact of the shaver with such sensitive areas when it is hot.
In the mid-range and upper-middle range we find perhaps the best shavers in value for money. The Panasonic ES-LT2N-S803, which integrates a shaving sensor, is one of them. Also noteworthy is the Philips OneBlade Pro QP6520 / 30, the most advanced multifunction shaver from Philips. Both have attractive designs and can be worn wet.
These models are classified within laminated shavers. Use them as if they were an ordinary razor. That is, performing vertical strokes while tightening the skin with your free hand to lift the hairs. For their part, rotary shavers must be accompanied by circular movements. In any case, it is advisable to always use the razor at the correct angle, passing it against the direction of hair growth.
If you want a mid-range rotary shaver, consider the Philips Series 5000 S5110 / 06. This shaver tends to be faster (although the risk of irritation is also higher) and can be cleaned under running water. On the other hand, it cannot be used in the wet. An interesting option if your skin is not too sensitive.
And we come to the latest generation razors. The Braun Series 9 9290cc es the most efficient model of the German firm Braun. The obsession of manufacturers is to reduce the number of passes with each new model, and this time Braun claims to have achieved incredible efficiency thanks to its five cutting elements, two specialized trimmers, flexible head and 10.000 microvibrations. And all without neglecting the well-being of the skin, which is the most important thing. In addition, it is an intuitive machine (it adjusts its power automatically based on the density of the beard) and it comes with a practical cleaning station.
When it comes to high-end shavers, we must also highlight the Panasonic ES-LV95, a shaver with the latest technology, including a modern LCD screen. As well as the Braun Series 7 7840s, slightly slower than its older Series 9 sister, but practically the same height in everything else.
These razors can be used wet (foam, gel or with the face completely wet). A very important function if you have sensitive skin. To do this, simply apply the gel or foam and wait 3-4 minutes for hair and skin to soften before starting. Although dry shaving is faster and tends to be quicker, keep in mind that it is also more aggressive with the skin of the face and neck.
