Things You Should Know For Our Electric Shaver Reviews

We’re living in an era where technologies are advancing rapidly, consistently improving everything we use in our daily lives, and an Electric Razor is no different.
So, with technology changing, and more men turning to an Electric Shaver instead of a manual razor, it is essential to find the best electric shaver to suit each indidvidual’s needs.

In this guide, we will give you all the information you need to know about purchasing the best electric shaver after various grading and testing on our part, but first, you should know the following:

What to consider for your best electric shaver UK

The market is stocked with countless options, so finding the right model best equipped for your facial profile takes a bit of research, and it’s generally a matter of mixing and matching the features.

What types of electric shavers are there?

Foil shavers have floating heads designed to glide over facial contours, with cutters that oscillate behind a perforated screen. Usually during tests, foil shavers tend to give a slightly closer shave than their rotary counterparts.

Rotary shavers have three or four floating heads designed to glide over facial contours, with cutters that spin behind a fine grid. Rotary shavers are mostly quieter than foil shavers and tend to be easier to clean.

As a general consent amongst men, foil shavers are less likely to cause razor burn, thus being favoured by those with sensitive skin (although some have found the opposite to be the case – it depends on your hair / beard type, after all).

Which type of electric shaver to pick and why?

Foil shavers are best used moving in a straight, long back-and-forth motion over the face and neck. The foil remains still while the cutter block moves from side to side and cuts the hair as it enters the holes in the foil.

Rotary shavers typically have three round heads with rotating circular cutters that work to conform to the shape of your face. The cutters spin below the heads and cut off the hair while a guard protects the skin from the blade. Rotary shavers generally suit those with regular to tough skin types with a medium to coarse beard density.


Current models offer a wide variety of convenience electric shaver features. Check the shaver’s instruction manual for details.
Even though the best electric shavers nowadays have rota-action blades, the foil technology has evolved to be on par once again since the 2000’s, if not better for sensitive skin on some great models. Check out our top 10 features for both foil and rotary shavers below, and make your choices later!

Battery Chargers
A full battery charge might take anywhere from 1 to 12 hours and should provide at least seven shaves. Some models allow a five-minute emergency charge, good for one shave.

Automatic Shutoff
A charger that shuts off automatically when the battery is fully charged is a convenience. With some, you need to pull the plug as soon as the shaver is fully charged, or overcharging might reduce the battery life.

Low-Battery Warning
A charge indicator or recharge light on some models warns you when the battery is low.

Power Cord
Some models let you shave by plugging in the electrical cord, a useful feature if you neglect to recharge the battery.

Ease of Cleaning
Most shavers come with a small cleaning brush. Some models can be rinsed clean. And some have a self-cleaning system that pumps a sanitizing liquid through the cutters.

Long-Hair Trimmer
Most shavers have this feature for trimming sideburns or other long hair.

Wet and Dry Shaving
Some models let you shave in the shower.

U.S. and International Voltage
You can use some shavers abroad without a converter.


There are multiple brands in this stuff blablabla and so on as i would say isnt’t that the case obviously? lol.
