You might be wondering how you are going to choose the best electric shaver – unfortunately, the ‘best electric razor‘ is a very subjective term, and like a lot of other things in life you may find it difficult to find the best razor for yourself, simply because you don’t really know exactly what you are looking for right now.
Which is why many individuals will take advantage of the 30 day refund period when they buy an electric shaver. It is not as if they are cheating the system or anything, but it is very hard to know whether or not a shaver is going to be right for you until you have you tried it on your face for at least a few weeks or so.
You can read all the electric shaver reviews you want, but at the end of the day, a three or four week trial with your shaver of choice is the best way to go. If at the end of the trial period the shaver is not working for you, you can return it for a full refund and try something else.
Although returning a shaver is frustrating and an inconvenience, at least you won’t have lost out on the deal and you can safely cross that particular model off your list!
How do I Find the Best Electric Shaver?
Most guys are aligned with a particular brand or model, such as the Norelco line of electric shavers which have been incorporated into the Philips series of shavers.
That doesn’t mean you can just pick any Norelco shaver and have it work for you straight away, but you may as well start your search with one of the leading brands as this is where many other people, in a similar position to you, have had success in the past.
If you don’t like the look of Norelco’s rotary shavers and would prefer a foil cutting head, then Panasonic is not a bad place to start. They have an excellent range of foil shavers in the mid to high price range that are easy to use and comfortable to hold. Their many hundreds, if not thousands, of positive reviews speak for themselves.
The other two main shaver manufacturers are Braun and Remington….
Hidden costs and inconveniences
Generally speaking an electric shaver has very little in the way of on-going costs, but it is still wise to make yourself aware of any extra costs that you might encounter further down the track.
At some stage in the future you will have to replace foils and blades as they become blunt, but for most shavers this is not a big deal and is fairly inexpensive. Some manufacturers though make it very difficult to locate these parts through any other avenue but their own sales channels, and they will often charge top dollar for them. Others though make it much easier…
If you are much of a traveler, it is also worth checking to see if the shaver can be used overseas. Many of the higher end shavers have worldwide voltage adaptability, but a lot don’t, rendering the shaver next to useless on a trip once the battery runs flat.
