A Guide to the Best Electric Razors

A Guide to the Best Electric Razors


Why Consider an Electric Razor or Shaver? 

Electric razors are a great option for those who have busier lifestyles but still want a luxurious grooming routine and a more convenient experience than cartridge razors. While cartridge razor blades or double edge safety razor blades help you enjoy a more traditional shave, electric razors have become more popular over the years due to their ease of use and the less aggressive shave they offer. With innovative technology helping deliver a close shave and precision trimming, electric razors also offer the benefit of allowing you to multitask efficiently without needing a whole range of different products to hand. 

Before you make your final purchase, it’s useful to consider when and where you’ll use your shaver. Most of The English Shaving Company’s range of electric razors can be used wet or dry, fitting your personal routine no matter how specific it is. When you’re choosing a new electric razor or shaver, you'll need to consider your skin sensitivity, your shaving experience and your personal routine to determine which electric razor is best for you. With that in mind, we’ve pulled together the best electric razors and shavers currently available, reviewed by our experts and supported by our customers. Keep reading to find the perfect shaving tools for you.

Best Electric Razor for Sensitive Skin 

Braun Series 3 Proskin 3040s 

Many users switch to electric razors because of the smoother, less aggressive shave they offer. Rather than more traditional double edge safety razors, electric shavers use two blades to cut the hair closely and smoothly. Braun’s triple-bladed Proskin takes this technology even further, making it one of the best electric razors for sensitive skin.

The Braun Series 3 Proskin’s three blades contour seamlessly to the skin, making them one of the best razors for older men and beginner shavers alike. These three-pressure blades adapt to your skin, effectively cutting both longer and shorter hairs without causing any irritation or razor bumps. Similarly, the Braun’s ergonomic rubber grip means it can be easily manoeuvred.
