The Master Chief Collection: all your Halo in one place.
Choosing between an electric shaver and razor blade usually comes down to personal preference and skin type. For most men, using an electric shaver offers a close shave without skin irritation. On the other hand, others may find using razor blades results in less irritation and redness. This may be because you need to use shaving cream with a razor, as it acts as a lubricant between the blade and your skin.
With razors, you’ll have to change the blades at least once a month, and more often if you shave every day. You would also need to purchase shaving cream or gel to help you get that smooth shave. Electric shavers usually last an average of 2-3 years and the blades about 12-18 months. No shaving cream is needed when you use an electric shaver.
Philips, Panasonic, Samsonite and Wahl produce electric shavers that cover a range of price points to suit every budget. And even though it may seem like a razor is more inexpensive than an electric shaver, the cost over time to frequently replace your razor blades and shaving cream would definitely add up.
Electric shavers make it quick and easy to get an immaculately smooth face. From long hair to five o’ clock shadows, these shavers can take care of your facial hair whether you prefer a dry shave (without shaving cream or water) or a shave in the shower. These shavers are also safer as you’re less likely to nick yourself, which makes them great for men with sensitive skin.
Foil shavers have fine, angled blades that move side-to-side beneath a very thin metal screen called a foil. The blades work by pulling hair through the foil and cutting them off like scissors, providing you with an extremely close shave. These shavers are great for shorter facial hair and sensitive skin as they cause less irritation.
Foil shavers can come with up to three blades, and the more blades you have, the closer your shave will be:
A rotary shaver features circular blades that are typically arranged in a triangular pattern and spin under a slotted head. Ideal for longer hair, these rotary heads contour to your face so you get a smoother shave even around tricky areas like your chin and above your upper lip. Most rotary shavers also operate with very minimal or no noise.
If your skin turns bright red or burns after shaving, then you may be in dire need of a wet/dry shaver. This kind of shaver can handle the moisture from a wet shave so you can use shaving cream or water to lessen the friction on your face. These shavers also execute a pretty darn good dry shave as well.
Electric shavers give you a clean shave much more quickly than a razor blade can. However, you will need to make sure that your shaver is charged enough to shave all your beard hair; otherwise, you could be forced to show up to work or a date with small hairy patches all over your face. There are a few different ways to power up your electric shaver and keep you looking good all day long:
Gone are the days when shaving could only be done using a very sharp, sweat-inducing razor blade. Whether you go with a Philips electric shaver or a Samsonite, today’s electric shavers not only look friendlier, but offer tons of great features that will help give you the best shave of your life – every single day.
A pop up trimmer is great for maintaining that perfectly groomed look without shaving off your facial hair completely. Use it to style your moustache, beard or side burns. Trimmers are also available as their own device and the thinner models can also be used for nose and eyebrow hair.
A pivoting head helps you glide easily over tricky areas, like around your chin, to ensure you never miss a spot.
The size of your shaver can also make shaving easier. A small electric shaver head will fit in small spaces like the spot above your lip while a larger head will shave off more facial hair with each pass.
If you have sensitive skin, opt for a shaver with moisturizer already built-in. Every stroke will deposit some smoothing moisturizer on to your face, reducing redness and irritation.
An electric shaver with an ergonomic handle will help reduce the fatigue you might normally feel when using your shaver for a long period of time. Aim for a shaver that fits comfortably in your hand and has a slip-proof grip for extra security.
Waterproof shavers can be fully submersed in water, so you can shave in the shower without worrying about damaging your device.
Cleaning your electric shaver after every use is important in order to prevent bacteria that can cause an infection if you nick or cut yourself. Here are a few ways you can keep your shaver looking just as good as your face:
The right electric shaver will give you the perfect shave so you not only look great, but feel great too. Whether you’re a foil electric shaver kind of guy, a rotary shaver fan or you really love a good shower shave, find your shaving match at Best Buy, where we offer electric shavers from top brands like Panasonic, Philips, Samsonite, and Wahl.
