People have been shaving the hair off their face for hundreds of years. While almost all the razors were of the manual variety in the past, electric shavers are becoming the norm and the best choice. If you are still using a manual razor, you should know some of the pros to going electric. You might be a bit surprised at what they can do for you.
You may have been contemplating about switching from traditional manual wet shaving with a disposable razor to using an electric shaver. Because most men are so familiar with the manual wet shaving routine, switching to electric is like taking a big step into the unknown. There are many reasons for men wanting to make this change. Some of the most common are that some men want to simply save time in the morning or to take the boredom out of the daily shaving ritual. Some men have even decided they want to give an electric shaver a try out of curiosity or recommendation from someone. Whatever the reason may be for you wanting to buy an electric shaver, you are faced with a seemingly limitless selection of shavers to choose from.
Believe it or not but this is a surprisingly common question with very little available information.
Going on holiday should be a relaxing and stress free time. By talking an electric shaver with you it eliminates the morning chore of having to go through the wet shave routine.

With such a huge amount of hair we need to cut over a year, obviously shaving blades will need to be replaced. One of the main advantages of using an electric shaver over shaving manually with a razor blade is that you do not need to replace the blades as often. Disposable razor blades need to be replaced often. The very cheap disposable razor blades do not last as long as the more expensive types such as Gillette Fusion Proglide. Personally, when I shaved with good blades such as Gillette Mac 3 I was replacing them every few weeks, and replacement blades of this type is not cheap!
I have researched and reviewed many men’s electric shavers for this website. I have even personally tested and reviewed electric shavers such as the Philips PowerTouch PT720.
