Compared to traditional razors, electric shavers are quick, require less care, and you don’t need to wet or lather before use. However, electric shavers can also be less thorough than traditional razors. The good news is that Norelco is a long-standing manufacturer of electric shavers, and they offer a plethora of models for all needs. Electric shavers may irritate sensitive skin, so consider the gentleness of the shave, the thoroughness of the shave, the battery power of the shaver, and its ergonomic comfort. Many electric shavers are geared towards men, but there are models that women can use for shaving body hair, too.
