Buying guide

Do you need help deciding which shaver you should pick? With our buying guide, you can learn more about what to look for when buying a shaver.

1

Type of shavers

There are two main types of electric shavers: Foil and rotary.

  • Foil shavers have a thin, perforated foil that covers the cutting blades, providing a close and precise shave. They work well for people with sensitive skin.
  • Rotary shavers have circular cutting heads that flex and adapt to the contours of your face. They are suitable for those with coarse or longer facial hair.</li<
2

Wet or dry shaving

Some electric shavers are designed for dry shaving, while others can be used with shaving cream or gel. Wet shaving can be gentler on the skin and may provide a closer shave.

3

Corded or cordless

  • Cordless shavers offer more flexibility and convenience. Look for models with a long battery life if you want to use it while traveling.
  • Corded shavers can provide consistent power but require an outlet.
4

Battery

Check the shaver’s battery life and how long it takes to charge. A quick charge feature can be handy when you’re in a hurry.

5

Maintenance and cleaning

Some shavers come with cleaning stations that make maintenance easier. Others can be rinsed underwater for cleaning. Consider the cleaning process when choosing a shaver.

6

Price

Electric shavers are available in all price ranges. The cheapest shaver in our comparison is the Braun Series 3 3000BT, which has a price of just £12, whereas the most expensive has a price of £479.

A cheap electric shaver typically differs from a more expensive one in terms of:

  • Build quality
  • Blade quality
  • Strength of the motor
  • Functionality (they are usually not suitable for wet shaving)
  • Battery in low quality, or only for corded use.

This chart shows how the price is distributed among the shavers represented in our comparison:

Other considerations

Panasonic ES-LV9Q
An electric shaver with a cleaning station (Panasonic ES-LV9Q)
  • Cleaning station: Cleaning stations are a convenient accessory that comes with some electric shavers. When you’re finished shaving, you place your electric shaver in the cleaning station, and the station takes care of the rest. The station typically contains a cleaning solution, usually an alcohol-based solution designed to clean and disinfect the shaver’s cutting elements. You can find the best electric shavers with a cleaning station here.
  • Pop-up trimmer: A pop-up trimmer is a small, built-in trimming device found on many electric shavers. The primary purpose of a pop-up trimmer is to trim facial hair, such as sideburns, mustaches, beards, etc.
