    electric shaver

    I've shaved with a razor for a long time, but I'm thinking about switching to an electric shaver. What kind should I get?

    Amazon.com: Braun Series 7- 790cc Pulsonic Shaver System, Silver: Health & Personal Care

    Just upgraded to this from a much lower (older) Braun shaver. AWESOME!!!

    It's a foil covered rather than the 3 rotary heads type. My face can't handle the rotary head type.

    Re: electric shaver

    Stay with the blade. I hate shaving with an electric. Plus, i usually only have to shave about two times a week so i don't mind the extra effort required.

    Re: electric shaver

    I use a Braun Pulsonic. It's the best electric razor I've found but still not as good as a blade. I have a heavy beard and use the electric almost every day. It does seem to take a longer time to shave with the Pulsonic than other electrics I've used --- but it gets closer.

    I don't know what kind you should get, but I got a
    Panasonic ES8243A Men's 4-Blade (Arc 4) Wet/Dry Rechargeable Electric Shaver with Nanotech Blades
    http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-ES82...anotech+Blades

    from Amazon.com. Switched from a razor about a year ago and I love the electric. I wouldn't go back to a razor now. The electric gets a very close shave, is faster than using a razor, and is a lot less messy.

    Self control is right. I love this site and look at it daily. I thoroughly enjoy most of the banter.

    Re: electric shaver

    I use a Braun. Not sure of the model number however. I'm happy with it, but really haven't used anything else to compare either.

    What's the difference? Don't they basically operate the same way?


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    They actually operate in different ways:

    For me the rotary type was very uncomfortable. My brothers use rotary without an issue. Different for each person so the OP may get a better shave with rotary. I just commented on what I own.

    Re: electric shaver

    Love my Panasonic. Harder to find but worth it. Be sure to grab the style with the triple blades. The blade in the middle is good for the longer hairs that tend to be missed by the finer blades. You should give a rotary a test though. My dad lives by them but I find they tend to yank the hairs in my neck out rather than cut them. I don't hear him swearing at his so he must not have that problem.

    Re: electric shaver

    This thread makes my neckbeard and face hurt. I tried electric once and never again. If you want a different (and infinitely better) shaving experience go for the safety razor and shave brush.

    I only use a Bowie knife. No cream, no water. Just steel against my skin.

    Re: electric shaver

    1st I use BOTH an Electric and a Blade Razor. I use a Norelco model 8251, its the best and closest shave I have ever gotten with an electric shaver.

    I shave 1st with the Electric Shaver and then I lather up and shave with a blade razor, I usually use a gillette mach 3, I like the mach3 and the sensor a lot better than those 4 & 5 blade razors.


    Close and Comfortable just the way I like it.

    Go Cyclones..
