Best Electric Shaver for Men Review

We have looked at all the manufacturers to find you the best electric shaver for sale in the UK market today. When it comes to shaving it can be a real pain to go through the routine day in day out. Wet shaving gives the closest shave, of that there is no doubt but some of the latest electric models are starting to come close and they are much quicker and more convenient 

Investing  in a good shaver can cut down on time and help recreate that wet shave finish. It can improve the health of your shin and leave it soft and smooth. Most of the good shavers have several features that you should always look for.

Always go for a shaver from a well known maker. These will be of a good quality and will have been tried and tested. If you damage it or need any replacement parts then these will be readily available. Some of the foils can easily be damaged to this is important. Also if you have a major failure then the warranty will be easily activated.

I also prefer the wet and dry models but at least go for something that's fully washable as they tend to collect dirt and dead skin if you cant give them a proper clean. Also corded models are pretty much a thing of the past so always check the charge time and battery life figures

You probably never give your shaver a second thought and think they are all the same. This couldn't be further from the truth. On average we found that the latest models will shave in half the time of some of the cheaper models and the difference in cut can be massive. It can be an expensive purchase so its important to get the right model

Recommended by my hairdresser and so glad I purchased it. Dries very thick hair quickly and doesn't cut out the way my old drier did when used for an extended time. Worth the money.

Good quality product for amazing price. Dries hair super fast, its very lightweight and so handy to use. A very powerful hairdryer of 2200W. it has 3 settings. 1 is cool and 2nd setting is hot/warm and the third is a bit too hot which works great for thick hair. Cord is nice and long and doesn't seem to get twisted while using.

Typical Buyer Comment

This replaces a Philips rotary headed shaver which expired after 6 years of irregular use. The Panasonic shaver is of excellent construction and shaves my unwanted facial hair well. It also has a trimmer on the back, but this is only about 23mm in width, a lot narrower than my old Philips
