“I have had this shaver for close to 2 months and it has far exceeded my expectations,” says one favorable reviewer. “The ability to shave in the shower with steamy hot water is amazing; after a week or so of getting used to an electric shave again; it has provided shaves equal to or better than blade shaving. The biggest downside of shaving with razors is that the three-blade or five-blade models cause ingrown hairs. When choosing a razor, you might come across mains, battery and rechargeable devices. Most electric shavers are rechargeable these days, making them perfect for use both at home or on the move. While some can be used both cordless or from the mains – allowing you to use them even if you’ve run out of charge – you should probably avoid battery-powered shavers.
This tiny electric shaver might not look like much, but it’s an absolute steal at the price. About the size of a mobile phone, the Philips Travel Shaver packs in a pair of rotary heads equipped with self-sharpening blades that last for up to two years.

A cheaper option is Braun’s amazing new Series 7 70-N7200cc which comes equipped with a flexible head that shaves as close as a razor. For the overall quality of shave at a non-crazy price, I’d personally recommend Braun’s updated flagship Series 9. It gets you smooth even if you haven’t shaved for 3 days and I prefer the feel of foil to rotary.

Well, like the top Philips models, the whole head is spring loaded so it moves around with the contours of the face. On top of that, the three slim foil blades also move independently from side to side.
