Our Top Men’s Electric Shavers

Panasonic ES-RF31 Wet & Dry Premium 4-Blade Men's Electric Shaver

The Panasonic ES-RF31 Premium 4-Blade electric shaver is the world’s first to use 3D pattern processing to create a honeycomb-shaped foil as thin as 41 microns. Sounds great… but what does that mean for you?

Panasonic ES-LV65 Arc5 Wet & Dry 5-Blade Men's Electric Shaver

The Panasonic ES-LV65 Arc5 is a top of the range electric shaver and is one of our best-sellers at Packed with high-performance technology, you'll achieve the most comfortable, closest and smoothest of shaves every time. A firm favourite that is reviewed highly by our customers, its face-hugging head and Nanotech blades are a sure-fire way to get an impossibly close shave with an electric shaver.

Panasonic ES-LV97 Wet & Dry 5-Blade Men's Electric Shaver

The super-sleek body of the Panasonic ES-LV97 matches its top-notch technology with 4 foil heads, multiple axis pivoting head, Lithium Ion battery and a whopping 14,000 RPM motor speed. Just about as close a shave as a cartridge razor but with considerably less (if any!) skin irritation, we’re a big fan of this Panasonic model and its predecessor, the Arc5.

Braun 7865CC eries 7 Wet & Dry Men's Electric Shaver

The SyncroSonic™ technology of the Braun Series 7 has 10,000 micro-vibrations, which helps to capture more hair in every stroke. Its 5 shaving modes (from sensitive to turbo) personalise your shaving experience based on your skin type and preferences, making for a more comfortable shave with its 2 foil cutting heads. Its protective SkinGuard and intelligent AutoSense technology have a sensor that reads the density of your beard and adapts the power of the shaver accordingly. It’s a great model for those with, especially sensitive skin.

Braun 9390CC Series 9 Men's Electric Shaver

The Braun Series 9 claims to be the world’s most efficient electric shaver.

This foil shaver provides you with both a close and gentle shave without compromise. The electric razor glides over skin and is suitable for wet or dry shaving. You can now shave cordlessly for longer (60 min) with 20% more battery than the previous models. Recommended by GQ magazine, the 5 shaving elements capture more hair in one stroke for a flawless shave (even cutting flat-lying hair too).

If you’re not sure if it’s time for a new shaver yet, it might just be that your current electric shaver isn’t performing as well as it used to. That doesn’t mean it’s time to throw in the towel. Have you changed your foil or rotary heads as of late, or at all?

Generally speaking, foil and rotary heads last between 12-18months. If you’re not sure what heads you need, check out our replacement part finder.
