If you are wondering what to look for when buying an electric shaver, take a moment and think about where you might want to use it.
Will you travel a lot or only use it in your bath?
How rough is your beard?
How would you shave in a hurry?
For a good measurement, imagine shaving in your most unexpected environment. A shaver that does the job quickly, efficiently and with the greatest comfort for your skin is the objective for many buyers.
There are three types of shavers to look out for: single foil, double foil and the more expensive triple headed shaver. Double foil helps stop hair from lying back onto the skin, clearing hair away with a more thorough cut. For coarse beards, a triple shaver is the best tool for the job. This shaver cuts more in fewer passes for those beards that resist. Get a smoother shave with the tight choice in electric shavers.
- The single foil works great for men with a regular beard. These blades are set side-by-side cutting evenly or the blades may move circular, but they are still giving a beard that even cut.
When you’re looking for that perfect shaver, check the vibrations per minute – 10,000 RPM is best, but most shavers have more. This fast-paced movement reduces pull on the beard, making a shave more comfortable. The floating head moves with the contours of the face. This takes the guesswork out of shaving.
- Travelers need a shaver that functions at multiple voltage levels. While most shavers feature rechargeable batteries, some shavers require the charger base to charge, while others have cords for charging. Some shavers get the job done dry – after all, Jacob Schick was a traveler and developed an electric shaver that shaved dry. Other shavers are capable of a wet shave. Just make certain a shaver is equipped for your favorite style of shaving wet or dry.
If you want to pay for a few added features like LED, light and automatic cleaning system you can get an easier razor to use and keep clean. A pop up trimmer cuts the edges your razor you might find difficulty getting to. Shaving is part of everyday maintenance and the electric razor used can make it a comfortable experience a pain. The proper razor for your face makes the job painless and barely a thought.
Shavers have rechargeable batteries and throw away batteries to let shavers keep a clean face whenever they choose. Charge in 3 to 5 minutes, get a complete shave, and be on your way. Spending a lot of time shaving when you are on the move is irritating. A shaver that lets you get the job done is important.
Try it out a new shaver for a few days to see how it feels on your skin. A shaver that pulls and pinches is a miserable way to shave no matter how much it costs. Expensive does not always mean quality!
