We all know the benefits of shaving with an electric razor. You cannot say that choosing your electric shaver is a difficult task. Despite the many options available, a little research and knowledge is enough to motivate your decision. How often do you shave? Are you one of those people who like to shave while showering? Do you prefer dry shaving? Do you want to carry your electric shaver on the go? What is your skin type, sensitive or more resistant?
You will answer the main questions that will define the best appliance for your type of beard, hair and shaving.
How to choose an electric shaver – By brand
It is a personal taste but you must consider it. There are several brands on the market, some already known, and others not so well known. Price is another factor that will influence the choice of brand. Try to read reviews from sites you trust, chat with other users, see the brand’s history and the guarantee it gives.
Do you prefer a corded machine or by rechargeable battery?
Rechargeable can be more practical for not carrying that cord with the device. You can take it to different places with a single charge, but the battery also has a useful life and later you will need to change them. For those that need an electrical network, you need an outlet nearby to use.
Wet or Dry shaving?
You may have seen the words “Wet” and “Dry” in appliance descriptions. A dry shave is faster and cleaner and ends up being easier when cleaning the device. Many men prefer the agility and practicality. Wet shaving means you can use the machine with gels, creams and foams, which will make you spend more on these products. However, you can also use it to shave in the shower.
Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning is essential for the maintenance of the appliance. Every time you use it, you should clean your device but with the rush of everyday life, this is not always possible. Today there are already self-cleaning electric shavers where you only change the cleaning liquid or cartridge. However, the price can be scary.
Price is a determining factor
Good, cost-effective shavers cost around 200 dollars. There are also excellent shavers in the range of one thousand two thousand dollars. Several factors will determine the price and one of them is the import price and taxes. You know how much you can invest.
Which one is the right brand?
Worldwide there are four brands that are the most reputable when it comes to electric shaving. They are Braun, Philips, Panasonic and Remington. The ultimate rivalry is between Philips and Braun. For the variety of models, the options and the innovations, they are the two best brands of razors.
Philips is the one who have the best rotary shavers. The main alternative to Philips is Remington. Braun also has a great capacity for innovation, with frequent updates. Its direct competition is Panasonic, and Philips.
More important than the brand is the range of the razor. Braun and Philips make it very easy for you because they classify their shavers into series. However, if you need both technology and affordable prices, Braun and Remington is the ultimate winner.
