After testing a lot of products, we have selected the 8 best electric shavers for sensitive skin for 2018 which are mentioned below. In our experiments, we have found these products most consistent in performance and true value for the money.
Braun Electric Shaver, Series 3 ProSkin 3040s
The ProSkin 3040s is part of the wet & dry razors from the Series 3 and sits somewhere in the middle of the pack considering its price and features. The shaver comes with the usual three blade setup, with two outer foils for cutting hairs close to the skin and one middle trimmer that deals with longer stubble.
Around this trimmer there is a… microcomb that should feed hairs more effectively to the cutters. The three cutting elements can move independently and are integrated into a single cassette, so they can’t be bought and replaced separately.
The materials used are black plastic with both matte and glossy treatments; the razor feels very solid and durable and in my subjective opinion it looks even better than its predecessor. The power button is rubberized and it takes quite a lot of force to press. Since the 3040s doesn’t feature a travel lock, I guess this is a good thing as there is no way you could turn it on by mistake.
Philips Norelco Shaver 4500 (Model AT830/46)
Philips is a brand that has been known to produce amazing shavers. The Norelco brand is among the most popular electric shavers of today. We will be reviewing the Norelco 4500 (Model AT830/46) model. This model is a cordless and rechargeable shaver that can be used in both wet and dry conditions. It also includes the DualPrecision shaving head.
This DualPrecision shaving head… can trim long hair and even short stubbles easily. Another unique element of this shaver is that it has a rotary style head and not a foil one. The heads have slots as well as holes to snip off hair quickly whether long or short. The design of this shaver is grey and black matte finish with a plastic casing.
The Norelco Shaver is built with a flex, pivot and flute system. This design allows for proper shaving on all the contours of your face. The head of the shaver has the ability to maintain close contact with the skin on your face all the while remaining gentle. This system grabs more hair in just one sweep so you don’t need to worry about going back and forth numerous times over your face and neck.
Braun Series 9290CC Men’s Electric Foil Shaver
The Braun Series 9290CC is perfect to buy on a Black Friday shaver sale, as it’s a premium cordless shaver that includes a clean and charge station. This foil-style shaver has a shiny and sleek look to it. It has a blue LED readout panel that tells you just how much charge is left. It’s cordless, rechargeable, and works wet or dry.
This shaver works with the Braun patented… SyncroSonic technology to make your shave much closer, smoother, and more comfortable than other shavers on the market today. The foil of this shaver has five different cutting elements that work together to remove more hair in one pass, and with minimal irritation. The clean and charge station is a black colour and works with a 5-action process. It speeds up the cleaning and maintenance of your shaver.
Part of this new generation, the Braun Series 9 9290cc comes in a new silver color treatment and includes an automatic Clean & Charge station. Moreover, this particular model is shaping up to be one of the best selling Series 9 shavers due to its lower price compared to other similar Series 9 variations.
Wahl Professional 5-Star Series Rechargeable Shaver
This shaver is designed for cordless and corded operation. It doesn’t appear to be waterproof, but its other features allowed it to make the list. At around 5 inches tall, it’s the smallest electric razor here. Nevertheless, it packs high-performance in a lightweight device. This rechargeable razor boasts a rather powerful motor that’s built with curly and coarse hair in mind.
Without applying too much pressure,… it claims to provide a super-close, bump-free shaving experience. To aid in protecting more sensitive skin types, the razor is coated with hypoallergenic foil. It features sharp twin blades that, once they have been thoroughly used, should be replaced according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. Also, although it lacks a separate trimmer, the size alone can make it ideal for touching up edges by itself.
Its compact size makes it the ideal razor for traveling. This is one of the best electric shavers for black men for the beginner shaver. This powerful shaver offers an appealing aesthetic in addition to top-notch precision. It comes with a rechargeable battery that can keep the rotary motor running at full speed for up to 60 minutes per charge. With hypoallergenic gold foil, even the most sensitive skin will be free of razor bumps, ingrown hairs, or skin irritation.
Braun Electric Razor for Men/Electric Shaver, Series 3 310s
Male grooming trends come and go, but the need for a fast, close shave holds steady. And the Braun series 3 310s electric razor is an ideal entry level shaver, great for a fast close shave and travel.
After some minor initial discomfort,… you’ll be able to comfortably achieve a smooth shave in just a few passes. Braun series 3 electric shavers use SensoFoil, which reduces the friction between the blade and your skin – maximizing cutting efficiency while minimizing discomfort.
The deliberate irregular pattern on the foil delivers super cutting efficiency in every stroke. This, combined with super sharp, yet easily retractable blades, provides a close shave, without causing nasty cuts.
Philips Norelco Electric Shaver 1100, S1150/81
Finally, there’s no need to blow up your budget if you want to invest in a quality electric shaver. The Shaver 1100 from Philips comes with a reasonable price point, yet packed with outstanding features to give you a close, clean, and smooth shave. The close cut blade system comes with self-sharpening blades that make it possible to attain a close and precise shave each time.
There are also flex heads automatically… adjusting their movement in 4 directions as necessary, which follow the contour of your face, jaw line, and neck for great results all the time. To facilitate a fast cleanup, just pop opens the shave heads and rinse this part right under the tap. Then, snap this component back in, so it’s ready to use the next time.
The only limitation of this shaver is its corded design. If you want an electric shaver that you can bring and use anywhere you are, you may find this product too limiting since it relies on a power outlet. Otherwise, it works just as expected, and the shave you get is good enough as what you can normally get from an electric shaver.
Panasonic ES-LA63-S Arc4 Men’s Electric Razor
As the Arc 4 name suggests, the Panasonic ES-LA63-S features a shaving unit comprised of 4 slightly arched cutting elements. While it has one less blade compared to the range-topping Arc 5 models, 4 blades are still easily enough and even overkill in some cases.
It’s the same setup you’ll… find on the other Arc 4 models, even though the replacement blades & foils combos can be different. As usual, there are only two removable inner blades (corresponding to the outer foils), while the other two are integrated into the foil assembly (the finishing foil and the slit foil).
For this razor Panasonic used their trademark 30 degree nanoblades made out of high quality, hypoallergenic stainless steel. The aggressive 30 degrees bevel ensures an efficient and clean cutting action.
Braun Series 5 5090/5190cc Men’s Electric Foil Shaver
The Series 5 shavers are equipped with a unique combination of power and precision for uncompromising performance without sacrificing on skin comfort. While the new FlexMotionTec delivers significantly more skin contact in problem areas for efficient shaving with less skin pressure, the new PowerDrive of this electric razor supplies 20% more motor power than before, for high speed cutting even on dense hair.
For better cleaning and longer lasting… shaver sharpness vs. water cleaning, Braun provides you with the convenience of the world’s only 4-action alcohol-based Clean & Charge Station for Series 5 razors: it cleans, charges, lubricates, and selects the cleaning program at the touch of a button—so your electric shaver feels like new every day.
