So many choices are there in the market and a person has to choose the best razor! It seems nearly impossible for a person to choose. Selecting one best razor in terms of shave, precision, clean, affordable and smooth shave is not an easy task. In this modern world, technology is growing very rapidly. The world of razors is no different.. You’ll agree with me that most of the men prefer the use of electric shavers to traditional manual blades. That is because they are easier to use, less harsh on your skin, shaving with them doesn’t take long, and you don’t have to deal with cuts and nicks that leave blood on your face. Another plus for buying an electric shaver is that they usually last many years, and you don’t have to keep buying new shaving sticks all the time. This saves you money. Some top electric razors trending in the market are:-
- Remington F5 5800
- Braun series 9 9092cc
- Philips norelco 9200
- Braun series 7
Electric razors are typically made up of three cutting heads that are flexible, which makes it easier for the blades to come in contact with the contours of your neck. The cutting heads on a rotary razor move independent of each other.
That makes it easier for you to get a close shave of the contours of your neck and face. Although they are not complicated to use, some people need a little practice to become comfortable in learning to create an effective shaving pattern. They tend to be quieter than foil shavers, are better for shaving longer hair and give you the freedom of shaving in any direction.
The Wahl Professional 8061 is a rechargeable shaver that has a dark brown plastic rectangular shaped case with large black power button and wide yellow foil shaving blades. This shaver promises to get super close. Wahl is a brand that many are taking new notice of, after Matt Damon shaved off his beard in The Martian film with a Wahl brand shaver.
It was his way of saying that he was leaving his beard, and Mars, behind, while he returned back home. It’s made with a coated hypoallergenic foil, to decrease discomfort and redness. It promises to not leave red bumps that can often happen after a shaver gets too close to the skin. It can be used with the cord, or charged up to be used without.

The head is one spot where you want a smooth shave, yet you don’t want any lingering discomfort afterwards. According to men,it is likely to keep the shaver cord plugged in, and then disconnect it to shave. This avoids the chance that there won’t be enough power to shave cordlessly.
