Electric Shaver Vs Razor Review- Which one is the Best

A lot of people are still confused about Electric shavers Vs Razor.

They still struggle to make up their mind between the two as the best option for everyday use. If you are one of them, this article may help you to better understand the choices.

 You’ll read both the advantages and disadvantages of using an electric razor and a manual razor.

Advantage of using Electric Shavers

  •     One major advantage of using electric razor is the comfort and convenience. You will get a much more comfortable shave out of an electric shaver compared to razor blade. They come with a very flexible head to easily follow the contours of your face.
  •     You don’t have to go through all the hassles of preparing for your shave as you do with manual blade shaving. Dry shaving with an electric shaver is a preferred choice for many for this reason. You’ll get a comfortable and efficient dry shave anytime.
  •     Compared to razor blade, a good quality electric shaver causes little or no skin irritation. Moreover, no bleeding is needed to get a close shave, unlike blades.
  •     You get speed with electric shavers. If you spend 10 minutes shaving with manual blade, you can expect to finish the same task in less than 3 minutes with powerful electric razor like Panasonic ESLV61-A.
  •     Electric shavers are durable. Shavers like Braun Series 7 799-cc are designed to last at least 7 years. Personally, I’ll never stick with a shaver that long but I like to keep options open and have choices when I sha0ve.

Disadvantage of Electric Shavers

  •     Though some shavers are very efficient, the majority of electric razors simply can’t give us the desired closeness of the manual blade.
  •     Most of the electric shavers out there are noisy and not an ideal option if you want a quiet shaving experience.
  •     You’ll need to spend a lot more money to buy quality electric shavers. High-end electric shavers are expensive, but their longevity might justify the costs in the long run. Any kind of damage not covered within the warranty is again a risk.
  •     Normally,your skin and beard need some time to adjust to a new electric shaver, many users do not understand this, and make premature, unwarranted negative assessments.

Advantage of using manual Razors


  •     You get a clean and close shave every time you use a good blade.
  •     There are no hassles to use razor blades in terms of maintenance and up keep. With disposal blades you use it once and throw away.
  •     Single Razor blades are cheap and you don’t have to worry about spending too much to get a clean,close shave.
  •     You can easily find razor blades at any department store or drug store. You don’t have to go through the hassles of finding replacement parts like you do with electric razors.
  •     Most men are more familiar with a razor blade and adapt easily. There is not much of a learning curve when compared to electric shavers.
  •     It won’t create noise like electric shavers which can be annoying at times. They are completely silent.
  •     It’s handier as a package when you travel. You can tuck in anywhere without much worry.

Disadvantages of Manual Razors


  •     Razor blades will cut your face and neck without warning. You can expect a cut when you least want it.
  •     You are more prone to skin irritation and razor burns. People with sensitive skin can really hurt themselves with razors.
  •     It takes time to prepare for a nice razor shave. Shaving is a slow process with razors. Hurrying is not recommended with razor blades.
  •     It can get messy,not just time consuming preparing for your shaving with razors.
  •     Though easily available you still need to replace the blades much more often than electric shavers. With some razors you’ll have to replace it after every single use.
