An investment buy, this product should result in a close and comfortable shave and to achieve this it is essential that you buy the right tool for the job.

The very first electric shaver was invented by American inventor and entrepreneur Jacob Schick in 1923.

Mens rotary electric shavers and foil headed electric shavers are produced by manufacturers such as Remington, Braun and Philips. Many also have trimmer attachments to kemp sideburns and customise your own beard style.
Foil or rotary?
When choosing an electric shaver it is important to look for a model that is tough enough to contend with your particular facial hair growth.
Foil headed electric shavers contain oscillating blades which move back and forth, covered by a thin layer of metal foil. More rectangular in shape,they are designed to be used in up and down and left to right motions.
This product is often favoured by men with sensitive skin as its lighter motions can reduce skin irritation.
Rotary electric shavers have multi directional heads (usually at least three), with cutters spinning below the heads while a guard protects the skin from the blade. They can make light work of coarse stubble growth as its circular motions are designed to manoeuvre around all contours of the face.
Free to roam
One of the biggest advantages of mens electric shavers is the ability to dry shave, meaning you can shave anywhere, anytime. Mens cordless electric shavers are best suited to those gents with a busy lifestyle who choose to groom while on the move. As well as dry use, some cordless electric shavers can be used with gel or shaving foam. If you also like the option of shaving in the shower there are lots of electric wet and dry shavers which offer dual convenience.
The days of messy wet shaving are truly over. If you are looking for a fuss free option which is clever enough to clean itself many mens electric shavers now come with their own cleaning systems. These shavers have enhanced technology such as cleaning stations where after use you simply dock the shaver in the station and it will self clean.
