Good: With 5 intensity settings, this shaver can be used by people of any skin type. It also features a very flexible head and a trimming blade for curly hair.
Not so good: This is not the most expensive shaver on our list, but still costs more than many people will be willing to shell out.
Bottom Line: The pulse technology Braun incorporated into this model produces a very clean shave. The “turbo” and “sensitivity” modes come in very handy as well.
Good: Specialized shave heads help lift hairs away from your face, which people with curly and thick hair will find very useful. It also boasts a travel lock and a unique trimmer attachment with 5 length settings.
Not so good: Not as supple as some others, so it might not follow facial curves very well.
Bottom Line: Great if you want to trim longer hair too, especially if you have an agile hand and don’t need a very responsive shaver.
Good: Four foils and a trimmer blade make for an incredibly close cut whether on either wet or dry skin. A unique smart sensor adjusts the speed according to the thickness of your hair.
Not so good: It costs a little more than other foil trimmers, especially when you add in the optional charger.
Bottom Line: The four foils and smart sensors make this shaver worth its slightly elevated price. It’s an uncommon but comfortable and very effective design.
Good: At a very affordable price, this foil shaver features a 4-way pivoting shave head, an easy-grip rubber coating, and a pop-up precision trimmer.
Not so good: It takes a disappointing 120 minutes to charge fully and does not come with a travel case or safety lock.
Bottom Line: This Remington offers a nice combination of qualities at a low price, without any major shortcomings.
Good: Includes many handy capabilities such as an advanced charge/clean/drying station, smart click attachments, a hard travel case, travel lock, and multiple intensity settings.
Not so good: The price of this shaver is above average, though it can only hold a lackluster 50-minute charge.
Bottom Line: If you’re willing to pay more for superior quality and plan to charge your shaver fairly often, this may be the one for you, especially if you have coarse hair and sensitive skin.
Good: Achieves an impressively close shave thanks to 4 foils, a trimmer blade, and sonic pulse technology. Also includes a cleaning- and charging base along with other special features.
Not so good: Doesn’t hold a charge for very long and lacks a travel lock.
Bottom Line: A solid option for anyone who wants a close, clean shave and plans to use it mainly at home.
Good: This shaver holds a conveniently long 90-minute charge and combines a flexible shave head with the best grip of all those we’ve reviewed. Its special foils enable it to handle hair that grows in divergent directions.
Not so good: It doesn’t have a travel lock and its soft travel case offers little protection against any bumps and bruises it experiences when packed in luggage.
Bottom Line: If you’re okay with the charging cord and don’t need a travel shaver, you’ll find this to be an excellent shaving system at a nice price.
Good: With pressure sensors, a special micro-comb trimming blade, and several other advanced features, this shaver can also be ordered with an optional charging station.
Not so good: This Braun has the shortest battery life of all those on our list and doesn’t come with a travel case – two factors that make it a questionable choice for travelers.
Bottom Line: It’s a good option for men with sensitive skin who have a hard time maintaining even pressure while shaving, assuming that they don’t need to travel often.
Good: A 4-way pivoting head, safety travel lock, soft travel case, comfortable grip, and optional charging base are among this shaver’s best qualities.
Not so good: A little on the large side, and doesn’t feature the best precision trimmer.
Bottom Line: Despite its bulk and mediocre trimmer, this remains a very competitive option for anyone who wants a solidly-built shaver.
Good: Its “super lift and cut” dual-blade system combines the best features of rotary and foil shavers in one convenient package.
Not so good: It lacks many of the accessories included with others, such as a charging and cleaning station.
Bottom Line: A very good choice if you want a close shave at a low price and don’t mind sacrificing a charging and cleaning station to get it.
Good: This shaver features a charging and cleaning station, slide-up trimmer, hard-shell travel case, and a special trimming blade perfect for curly hair, all at a reasonable price.
Not so good: Though the head flexes back and forth, it does not angle sideways.
Bottom Line: Despite one small shortcoming, this is a pretty good shaver overall which works well with curly hair.
