Male grooming can be a demanding task – particularly when it’s very early in the morning and there is a day of meetings ahead. Who really has the time to deal with all sorts of creams, razors and combs when there’s an extra five minutes in bed to be had? Thank goodness for electric shavers that can improve accuracy and shave the time off, (sorry), your daily bathroom labours.
So, What The Deal Yo with… electric shavers?
Electric shavers are all the same, aren’t they? Well, no they’re not. The models listed below are some of the best at ridding any face of unwanted fuzz. We’ll all be as smooth as the baby’s proverbial in no time…
Panasonic ES-ST25 3-Blade Electric Shaver
The Panasonic ES-ST25 model has a high-speed linear motor, which can power through just about any beard with less irritation. It’s convenient, usable both wet and dry, and its round-shaped outer foils allow the shaver to navigate the full contours of the face. For fans of technology, the ES-ST25 has a sensor that can distinguish between different beard densities, and a three-blade cutting system that gets closer than ever before.
Braun Series 3 3040 Men’s Electric Foil Shaver
Faster than any previous Braun shavers, the Series 3 3040 promises a close shave, improved comfort and micro-comb technology that will style as it goes. Three independently floating blades are designed to adapt to the contours of the user’s face, and one single charge can keep it going for a whole week – not bad if it’s being used regularly. This shaver can be used on wet and dry faces, depending on how much time a bloke has to get in shape.
Philips Beard Trimmer 9000
Not a shaver, but a trimmer… Sssh. The Philips Beard Trimmer 9000 sounds like something from a sci-fi film – and it’s pretty nifty. Ideal for those that want a trim rather than a full shave, this piece of kit is the only men’s shaver to boast a laser guide that guarantees straight lines. It will turn the bushiest of menfolk into a well-groomed pussycat in no time. A bright LED screen displays each trim-length, from 0.4mm to 7mm, and the dual-sided trimmer’s blades are waterproof, which is always handy.
Philips Series 7000 Electric Shaver
Yet another space-age gadget from the chaps at Philips, the Series 7000 is specifically designed for sensitive skin. Its microbead coating is designed to reduce friction. This shaver has flexing heads that move in five different directions, making sure that even the hardest-to-reach places are tackled, while its SmartClick Precision attachment allows for side burn and moustache trims without the need for a full shave.
Braun CruZer6 Face All-in-One Electric Shaver
It looks cool, its name is edgy, and the Braun CruZer6 is a great bit of kit. Designed as an all-in-one men’s groomer, the shaver will shave, style and trim – whether a face is wet or dry. An extra-wide shaver head and SmartFoil gives a smoother shave, and there are two twistable styling trimmers for a variety of looks. Oh, and as if that wasn’t enough, this gadget boasts a three-day beard comb so that even stubble looks in order.
Men: We’re not renowned for spending hours pouring over grooming products, but when it comes to men’s shavers, we’re all ears. Nobody wants to risk the dreaded shaving rash or deep, unsightly cuts, after all. Oh, and aren’t we all worth it anyway? We’re totally entitled to have the best.
