How to Find the Best Shaver For You


When we talk about finding the best shaver, the focus is really about finding the best shaver "for you." There are, course, high-end shavers ranging $ 200 – $ 300, or more. However, these shavers do not need to hold the title of "one-shaver-suits-all."

Some beards are thick, some are rough, some prickly, some are thin and some are blotchy. Along with the type of hair, you should also take into consideration the type of skin, for example, is it dry, oily, sensitive, irritated, or just plain normal. Then there are all the additional features to consider, such as battery life, quiet performance, durability, speed, trimmer options, closeness of shave, ease of cleaning, grip comfort, adjustability, price, and the list goes on. The fact of the matter is that there are many different shavers to suit individual needs.

How to Shop for a Shaver

Before shopping for a shaver, you should make a list of the top three features you are most interested in having in shaver, for example, 1) close shave, 2) durability 3) easy to use. Once the top three choices have been made, then add to the list by prioritizing the most important to the least important features, but always staying focused on the top three.
