    best electric razor?? opinions and discussion

    So long story short.... I recently have noticed that my face has become more sensitive to my razor when I shave and I get pretty bad irritation and razor burn with the red bumps, you know, the whole deal. I've tried different shaving cream and razors but no real improvement. I was wondering what electric razors you guys (and girls.... maybe ) are using and what is the best for sensitive skin like that? I have looked around but don't wanna dump $50-100 on an electric razor only to find that I'm not satisfied with it.

    Discuss....whats the best out there??

    What shaving cream/gel are you using? Also, what razors have you tried? This can make a HUGE difference in how your face reacts to shaving. Do you shave in the shower?

    I have very sensitive skin, so I have researched and found good products to use.

    How long since you've replaced your foil & cutting block?

    I've had great long life reliability out of cheap Norelco electric shavers. Make sure that you get one with at least 3 heads. Anything less and it will take all day to finish. You do have to replace the blades a few times a year, though. And you must clean them out every 1-2 weeks.

    I've had so many electric shavers, its kinda ridiculous. I have a pretty coarse, thick beard and I was always very hesitant to drop $200 on one, but after listening to me complain everytime I shaved, my wife finally bought me a Braun Series 7 with the "clean and renew" system (~$200). I will never, ever, EVER, buy any other razor again. I honestly think the cleaning system really does a lot to keep the blades and foil in good shape. The cutter blocks are readily available and easily replaced (~$40 for a block and foil) and the cleaning solution lasts me about 3 weeks before it needs to be replaced. A box of 3 cartridges is about $10.

    Hands down, worth every friggin' penny.

    I have extremely sensitive skin and don't grow much facial hair... I typically use andis, wahl, oster cordless beard/mustache trimmers.. Also I use baby powder instead of shaving cream
    Even though I am in my 40's I only have to shave three/four times a week

    Ummm, it kinda doesn't look like you fully shave to me. I was thinking that you just "clip and trim" only.

    I have a very coarse beard. I became very dissatisfied with the multiblade deals no matter the shaving cream or gel I used. The problem was that my coarse whiskers get stuck between the blades (the more blades the worse it got) and those stuck whiskers cause hella irritation. I could never manage to wash them all out. I went completely electric when I got cancer because of a ridiculously high bleeding risk and I got a Norelco with a self cleaning base station. It's nice but doesn't get ANYWHERE near as close as a manual blade.

    I am starting to research straight razors. My local barber does straight razor shaves and I've taken to having that done with my haircut. The quality of shave is mich better but from what I am reading about good straight razors, there should be little irritation. Turns out my barber uses one with replaceable blades so who knows how dull the blade gets before he puts in a new one.

    Still, the shave quality is very good so I have a bit more research to do. First is to find a barber who does it with a quality, sharp razor like what I would buy, and a good shave soap. My barber uses foam dispensed from a warmer which feels nice but I have to try something more like I'd do at home.

    I'd keep the electric for quick touch up work on days I didn't feel like pulling out the full kit, though.

    Ya know to this day, I can't say that I've ever seen a "real" mtn biker with a beard like that. If you parted it evenly before rides, I would think that it would just blow along side of your neck and not get in your face as you were riding?

    I must be lucky. I bought a really cheap one (about $50) about 3 years ago and have been using it several times a week. Still has the original blades too.

    I have a Panasonic Mark IV ($120). Works better than any other electric razor I've ever tried, but it takes MUCH longer than using a Gillette Mach 3 in the shower.

    The best thing I did was to get a good mirror for the shower, and a nice badger hair brush to apply the shaving soap. Takes me about 1.5 minutes to shave completely, and much smoother than any electric razor. Good soap/shaving cream is key.

    Anybody here use shave oil to prep their face before ever applying shaving cream? Makes all the difference, softens your skin so it contours and stretchs with the blade(s) rather than being tough and slicing when the blade tugs on a hair. I use a Vitamin E body oil I found at the natural market, it's got some almond oil and other natural oils mixed in but others have made DIY shaving oils with olive oil, castor oil, almond oil, aloe extracts, etc.

    I wont go into using a badger brush and making your own lather from good shaving soap since you dont generally use shaving cream with an electric razor. I get much less irritation using a badger brush to apply shaving cream and then using a multiblade razor over using an electric on dry skin.

    Prep the skin, apply the oil when your skin is warm, right after you've gotten out of the shower. Rinse your face with cold water when you're done shaving - closes up your warm and open pores to keep microscopic debris and bacteria out of your skin. Use a high quality aftershave cream free from alcohols and other harsh chemicals - look for one that uses natural oils to moisturize over synthetic chemicals (I like Burts Bees aftershave)

    I'm in need of an electric shaver but I'm not sure what to get. I've always been razor and shaving cream type of guy. My facial hair is really thick and my face is pretty sensitive. I used a crappy electric razor a while ago and it ripped up my face. I found this website last night Best Men's Electric Shaver / Razor - Best Electric Shaver for Men 2013 and I'm considering the Braun Series 5 and I'm wondering if you guys have any feedback for me with that. it's more money than I want to spend but if it's quality then that's what I want. Any feedbacks or suggestions would be great.

    I have the previous Series 5 and I can say that it was the best money I've ever spent on personal care products. Its going on 5 years now, and all I have had to do is replaced the cutter block and foil on an annual basis, which at the end of the day, is cheaper than buying 12 months worth of blades/cream. I am replacing it now, but only because they have redesigned the razor and no longer make the top-notch cutter block. I will happily buy another Braun. I too have a thick beard with sensitive skin.

    Tip for razors - Shave straight after a shower, or in the shower. Makes a LOT of difference, lots less irritation.

    Also, ditch the cartridge razor or electric razor to really get rid of the irritation. Use good product, shave prep, high quality shaving cream not from an aerosol can, use good aftershave. No irritation at all after you get the hang of shaving with a straight razor or single blade/double edge safety razor.

    Alum block for days when you're feeling irritated. Thayer's witch hazel as aftershave every time and a good moisturizer afterwards. Clean smooth shave.

    Why do you think you need an electric razor? Tend to shave away from sinks? Unless I traveled for work I dont think I would ever even consider a cartridge razor or electric razor setup again in my life.

    After making the initial investment in a nice safety razor, I spend around $30 a year on blades, shave soap, aftershave, and balm. And it'll be about like this for the rest of my life unless I lose or break my razor or brush.

    Best value for money electric razor on the market

    In my opinion Philips Sensotouch 3d is the best electric razor for men. It leaves the lest skin irritation after shaving, it's quiet and you can choose between wet or dry shaving. There are other options as well, but I think the razor from Philips is shows the best value for money.

    The phillips norelco is a great shaver, its the one with the two sided beard trimmer on one end and the barrel shaver on the other.
    The best thing about this model is its great for the pubic areas, but it can cut you pretty bad.
    But i dont even use the shaver, i use the beard trimmer to do everything.
    Dont ever let the truth get in the way of a funny story....

    I've been thinking about trying them out.
    I've seen the commercial but I'm stocked up on Mach 3 blades off ebay. They average out to 60 cents a blade, and like King headsets, there's Chinese knockoffs to beware of. Look for a lot number.

    I can't do electric shavers. They're just too harsh. I fly the Mach 3 in the shower using the neighbor lady's home made soap full of different oils. To extend the blade life I hit the razor with a blast of computer cleaner to blow out any water that can cause pitting. I've heard about using olive oil instead but don't really want a bottle of that in the bathroom. Any explanation would sound like a lie.

    I've heard the blades are really cheap, harsh on the skin, and dont last so long. Also that the handles are cheap, lightweight, and break easily.

    There's really no excuse for having any irritation shaving. If you're having irritation you're either doing something wrong or you're using the wrong hardware. Razor bumps/burn (and ingrown hairs for some) are just the symptom of a bigger problem.

    Pic on the left is a hair cut with a razorblade, hair on the right ripped out with an electric razor. Food for thought.

    Great electric shaver

    Was in your shoes one day m8. Got tired of using any traditional razor because of all the razor burns it would give me. Finally decided to switch to a shaver so I got the Philips Norelco PT730 and never went back. It is great and you should have no problems with it.

    I have an old Norelco 3 head electric shaver. Circa 1990? I've replaced the nickel cadmium batteries in it 3 times now. Solder them in and out. Still holds a good charge, needs a charge every 4 or 5 weeks, and I clean the blades and foil 1x a week. I don't have a heavy growth, but with the water shortage, I've stopped shaving in the shower, waste of water. Prefer a double blade safety razor for closeness of shaves, but the electric is going to have to be good enough with the drought we've been having.

    I can't believe all the sissywimps here. Use a straight razor like a man.

I was wondering what electric razors you guys (and girls.... maybe ) are using and what is the best for sensitive skin like that? I have looked around but don't wanna dump $50-100 on an electric razor only to find that I'm not satisfied with it.

    Discuss....whats the best out there??
    I'm guessing you found a solution but I prefer braun over philips, they just shave thicker hair better and faster.

    I'm using gilettes now, 3 blades and its MUCH better than any shaver ever. And i also have a real shaving knife that i use about once a year (and cut myself), and its even better but takes 10x the time (for me at least).

    It was one of my chief priorities. It wasn't easy finding them but I have what I believe to be a decent set.

    Me too. I've been using them for decades. I even opened one up and replaced the NiCads in it. They last a very long time.

    Never thought of doing that. I had a rechargeable one and the batteries were shot, I would forget to plug it in after a weekend trip and the batteries would die after shaving half my face on Monday morning!...and it wouldn't even work plugged in! I bought one of the cheap corded only Norelcos and it works fine.

    And it only cost about $3.00 for the two AA NiCads. They're attached with welded solder tabs. You have to be careful removing them from the batteries. Then you can solder in the new ones.

    I've been using the same Braun for several years now. The rechargeable batteries still hold a charge for several days.

    I have a norelco. Just switched for 3 months. I still have not gotten close shave yet. They say 45 days, hmmm.

    It's not really wet and dry, I can't even shave without cream or it would rip my face. How long does it take for the transition?

    electric razors suck ass imo. Go with at least a gilette multiblade or real razor knife. It takes like twice as long for the beard to grow out compared to electric ones. It just goes deeeper.

    My wife bought me a Panasonic (arc5 I think is the model) that was $$$ but worth it for me. My beard grows fast so regardless if I get a super close shave or not I have a 5 o'clock shadow later that day. Didn't take me more than a couple of shaves to get used to it and the shave is pretty damn close to when I use a regular razor. It can be used as a wet shaver with cream and the shave is really close but I prefer to use it dry before I shower and it doesn't irritate my skin like a regular razor. I personally won't go back to a regular razor.

    my experience is this: I started outy with a cheapo electric. lasted for a bout 2 years, back when i was 13-14 or so.

    the upgraded to my fathers used brauns, top of the line units 200$. was happy at the time with them. then both batteried died in 1999-2000 or so while I was ingreece for the summer. Had to get an alternative. got a mach 3.

    The mach 3 was much much much faster and closer shave. Then the mach 3 turbo and all that sh1t came out, and it lasted about half as long, in my testing.

    5 blades?? wouldn't bother..

    All the actual shaving takes place on the first blade anyway so why add 2 more unused blades?

    Armed with that knowledge I got me a dovo inox all stainless razor and its even more close than the mach 3 but it takes like 5x the time to shave. But its cool and its ultra deep shave. Long lasting shave.

    Then later I thought I step up the game a bit and got myself an iwasaki kamisori. this is the very ultimate in attainable sharpness and therefor closeness ever built on planet earth according to knowledge to date. Its handmade in japan.

    You need stones and strops for real razors. But you can at least add a whole 24h until you can feel the beard again after a straight razor shave compared to even the best electric a kamisori extends that a few h more. time is money.

    I briefly used blades and switched to an electric. I've been using the top of the line Braun's for several years now, and it works fine enough I guess. I can't shave 2 days in a row though, or I get bad razor burn. And with blades, I was never able to get as close a shave as I do with the electric. Plus i had major problems with ingrown hairs. I think in large part because I shaved against the direction of hair growth, but going with the growth was a terrible shave . . . all in all, I absolutely hate shaving. So much that I've had a beard for at least 2 years now.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    Somewhere I read that you need to use it for 3!!! months before you get the right to claim your money back. As for me, I usedd some Philips products in my life before, so I belive this company. looking to this one Philips-Norelco-7310
