The Kinds Of Electric Shavers For Your Daily Grooming Needs

Every man knows that one of the essential tools in his grooming arsenal is his trusty electric shaver. Some men like to sport a cleanly shaved face for their everyday attire while some would trim their beards to have that manly look. No matter what facial hair men have, their trusty electric shaver will always get them covered.

So, which electric shaver is right for you? Then, let us look into the two types of electric shaver available, the rotary and the foil electric shaver.

The Rotary Shaver

Rotary shavers utilize a sharp spinning razor reaching high rpm to cut your facial hair effectively. The rotating head of this electric shaver has three discs in its first appearance in the 1960s and up to today still retains that feature. The benefit of this kind of razor is that it can effectively provide a close shave, being that it can be bent to the contours of your face. Also, the way it is used is to use it in a circular motion around your face for a more efficient shaving.

The Foil Shaver

Foil Shaver is the original design of all shavers (before rotary was introduced) since 1923. It consists of a foil head that contains a set of oscillating blades to cut down the hair. Its operation can be described as a set of tiny scissors cutting your facial hair. The advantage for this razor is that you can effectively get a great close shave around the plats of your face, like in the cheeks or under the chin. The only downside of this is that it is had to use this on the contours of your face.


Choosing the best electric shaver still depends on the features of your face. For men with more flatter face features, go for the foil ones. For those men who have a much rounder face, then rotary is best for you. Thus, this is also the same when shaving the back hair, for it still depends on the features of your back too.
