The main elements of this shaver are the vibrating blades that are covered with a special mesh.

It is believed that the rotary shavers have a higher quality of shaving, but at the same time they are more irritating for skin. According to my own observations, the quality of shaving, which has a foil electric razor, is not inferior to the rotating saver, but the skin is hurts less.

When You choosing a shaver You have to pay attention to the following characteristics:

  • 1. Number of shaving heads. The more shaving heads – the faster You can shave. In most rotary shavers are placed two or three rotary shaving heads, in foil shavers – from one to three.

  • 2. The mobility of the shaving heads. Mobility shaving heads – is the ability to change their position according to the contours of the face. For optimal shaving shaver must have a floating heads.

  • 3. The possibility of wet shaving. Some electric shavers can be used with shaving cream (wet shaving). If You have very sensitive skin, it is necessary to look for such shaver.

  • 4. Presence of beard trimmer. A beard trimmer is a special retractable attachment which helps to trim sideburns and long hair on beard. The presence of the trimmer is a very desirable factor.

  • 5. Methods of powering. Electric shavers can be powered only from electricity network, only from the batteries or from electricity network and battery both. The optimal choice is the shaver, which can be powered from both – electricity network and battery.

  • 6. Additional functions. Some shavers have a number of additional functions, such as self-cleaning, presence indicators of power and others. These additional features are present mainly in high-end models, and very often the effect of their use is not worth it to pay a higher price for the shaver.
