The Real Close Shave
The thick, dense stubble doesn’t stand a chance with the Panasonic men’s electric razor. Have a perfectly clean shave each and every morning without sacrificing your comfort.
To start with, this razor boasts the 16D flexible shaving head that follows the contours of your face to a “T”. This means a very close shave with no loose hairs or problematic spots. If you want to look your absolute best, day to day, the Panasonic is your top choice.
Add the smart sensor that makes shaving more tailored to your unique needs, and there you have it. Why not impress your girlfriend with the smooth skin that’s so pleasant to the touch? You don’t have to be a film start or celebrity to actually look like one; all you need is a quality electric razor.
The Panasonic is not only precise, but also extra powerful. The 5-blade shaving system can perform as many as 70,000 cross-cuts per minute without irritating your skin (unless yours is very sensitive). What’s more, you won’t be searching for a replacement in a few months, as with cheaper and less durable models.
Are there any drawbacks to this razor? It’s pretty heavy, that’s true, and holding it for long will probably be somewhat tiring for your hand. But on the positive side, the unit is rechargeable, so no annoying cords that get in your way while shaving.
Overall, this electric razor by Panasonic is everything you’d want from one; it’s very precise, smart, and durable. Get it for yourself or as a great practical present for a friend or colleague.
Skull Shaver Pitbull Platinum PRO
A Flawless Cut
Shaving doesn’t have to be a chore – and won’t be if you choose the Skull Shaver Pitbull electric razor. Fast, precise, and comfortable, it will make your daily shaving a pleasure again.
Let’s start with the fact that the 4 rotary shaving heads in this device are multidirectional for an even better result. They are also extra fast and ultra-safe, although the claimed 90 seconds for a perfect shave may be stretching things a little bit. But don’t worry, you’ll get your clean cut – and impress everyone with the new, smooth look of your skin. This razor can handle the hard-to-reach areas with no issues – or even let you shave the head if that is what you want.
Made of hypoallergenic, premium quality stainless steel, the razor blades will remain sharp for a long time, so you won’t have to search for a replacement any time soon. Taking care of the blades is also piece of cake, as they are removable and can be easily cleaned out. Note, however, that the rinse stand doesn’t look particularly reliable.
This cordless razor can be charged in a flash and will go on for 90 minutes. The handy LCD display will show you the battery level anytime, so you can power it up in advance. No cords getting in the way, and you can take it on vacation or a business trip in a nice travel case.
Summing up, the Skull Shaver Pitbull electric razor cuts clean and fast, which is ideal for active lifestyle users and frequent travellers. It also makes a great holiday gift to a family member or co-worker.

Philips New Series 3000 (S3333/54)
The Philips S3333/54 is one more shaver that sits at the higher end of the cheaper Philips 3000 series. It’s very good quality (a la Philips), easy to hold, has a good battery life, and provides a very clean shave.
Fitted with 27 self-sharpening blades along with 5D Pivot and Flex heads, it follows each curve for a comfortable shave. Actually, the results are on a par with a wet, razor shave, and you don’t need to go over the same area multiple times. With that, the cutter blades here stay sharp for a long while and need replacement no more than every two years. Also included is a trimmer attachment that comes in useful for getting your sideburns straight.
When it comes to accessories, you get a plastic docking station for storage and a nice drawstring bag for keeping it neat when taking on your travels. However, beware that the shaver battery charger comes with a 2-pin socket rather than a 3-pin UK plug, so make sure your bathroom socket fits it or simply buy an adaptor in advance.
The stand lets you store the shaver upright on your shelf, but if you want to, you can simply plug the cable right into the unit. The quick 5-min charge will give you enough power for one shave, while the full charge requires one hour and lasts for about fifteen shaves. There are 3 bars on the handle that light up to show you the actual charge level, so you won't get an unpleasant surprise with the shaver running out halfway.
Overall, the unit is incredibly light to hold and easy to manoeuvre. Add to that an ultra-quiet operation and you get yourself a decent electric shaver that is nice to use at all levels.

Remington R5000 Style Series R5
Style Your Stubble
There is much to be said for the Remington R5000 Style Series R5 Wet & Dry Electric Razor, and almost all of it is good. Anyone looking for a highly flexible electric shaver that not only lets you shave your face completely, but even just to style your stubble in order to maintain a neat but "rugged" look will find this particular model to be noteworthy.
First off, this rotary electric shaver gives you what you typically expect from such a device. The floating double blades, flexible swivel head, and antimicrobial protection system make shaving not only effective and fast but also safe and comfortable for your skin. That means you can get a thorough shave without having to worry about "razor" burn or any kind of skin irritation.
What makes this particular model unique, though, is the fact that it comes with a few additional accessories. One of the more notable ones is a 3-day stubble styler that lets you keep that close-cropped rugged look without looking like a slob. Also included is a pop-up detail trimmer that helps you trim those hard-to-reach areas, letting you completely style your look to your preference without the need of additional accessories.
The shaver is fully rechargeable, and even includes a quick charge mode for a single shave should you run out of battery power. You can also take it with you if you travel overseas, thanks to its automatic voltage selection. In all, this electric shaver from Remington gives you exactly what you need, with little to complain about.

A Great Alternative to More Expensive Models
Although cheaper than the other models we reviewed here, the SweetLF electric shaver doesn't trail behind its more expensive peers. With three rotating floats and a powerful motor, it's definitely one of the best electric shavers in its class. The SweetLF SWS7105 is a rotary type of electric shaver. It has three 360 floating heads which adapt to the contours of neck, jaw, and face for a close and comfortable shaving experience. Also, it has a pop-up trimmer for accurate trimming of sideburns and facial hair and a blue-lit LED display showing the battery charge.
One of the benefits of this shaver over some other models is that it has a USB port, meaning it can be charged through any USB charger, even that of your mobile phone. This adds up to its convenience of use and portability. Another advantage of the SweetLF SWS7105 is that it's waterproof, which allows you to clean it under tap water and use it in the shower for a more comfortable shaving experience. To clean the unit, the head of the shaver pops up so you can access the inside of it and brush off leftover hair.
All in all, while we wouldn't go that far calling this shaver the best electric razor, it's certainly not a bad choice in its price range, especially if you're somewhat budget-strapped and need an inexpensive thing. The SweetLF SWS7105 has all the necessary features, is comfortable to grip and use, and universal-voltage. You can use it wet and dry and take with you on your trips without worries.

What Is a Rotary Electric Shaver?
A lot of men have long given their preference to electric shavers. These devices are much more comfortable and reliable than a conventional razor. Using an electric shaver, there is no risk of getting cuts.
Rotary electric shavers with floating shaving elements provide a more thorough shaving, since you can easily shave even the hard-to-reach places. Owing to the floating heads, a rotary shaver provides quick and quality shaving in just one movement. Thus, if you do not want to sacrifice the quality of shaving, your choice is a rotary razor.
Looking for a shaver, you should choose the way of shaving: dry or wet. Now, the versatile models with the function of wet/dry shaving are in great demand. The wet feature means you can wash the razor under running water, and also you can safely shave while taking a shower. Models, designed for wet shaving, are easier to clean and can be stored in a bathroom in spite of high humidity.
In recent years, choosing a really good shaver has become quite a challenge. Every year, more and more new models are “thrown” on the market. It is important that you can differ some real innovations from a simple marketing ploy. In our review, we will try to help you with the choice. We have considered both inexpensive electric razors and those of premium class. There are both razors for adult men with stiff bristles, and models that can be given to a teenager as a first razor.
If you have a beard or a moustache, a beard trimmer is a tool you need. Meanwhile, nose and ear trimmers will help you to get rid of unwanted hairs in hard-to-reach areas, allowing you to finish your perfect look.
