Even though my grooming routine is extensive, I’m a minimalist at heart. I like nothing more than an easy-to-use, no-fuss-no-muss product that can cut down my grooming time. The outlier, however, was always my shaving routine. I was still stuck on the pre-shave, shaving cream, razor, aftershave hamster wheel and couldn’t seem to get off. What changed was my razor bumps. No matter what I did, and no matter what product I tried, I could not seem to get rid of them. That is, until I tried an electric razor.
It takes about two weeks for your skin to get used to using an electric razor, but once I passed through that window, I was amazed that my razor bumps decreased significantly and never really came back. Experts might say that’s because electric razors do not cut as close as a traditional razor / shave cream combo, but in practice I did not notice any difference between the closeness of my shave. In fact, I found that without shaving cream, I could see spots I missed and manage the details of my shave much better. A few years later, I have not looked back.
There are many reasons a guy might switch to an electric razor. Like me, it could be the razor bump issue. Also like me, it could be to save time. Electric razors are also easy to travel with (no extra products!), Intuitive to use (especially newer versions that incorporate sensing technology and even AI), and less expensive in the long run. Many can be used in or out of the shower, with or without shaving cream, and even on other parts of your body like your head or below the neck. Plus, and this is a big plus, a single electric razor can replace your entire shaving routine and declutter your bathroom shelf — who does not like that extra space?
No matter what your reason for using an electric razor, the biggest thing is finding the right one for you. The good news is that no matter what your budget, skin or hair type, or grooming acumen, there is an electric razor out there for you. This list of the 14 top electric razors for men is the best place to start. Is less more? When it comes to shaving, I’d have to agree.
