What is a foil based shaver?
Foil shavers have a straight, rectangular head with the primary cutting elements being a thin layer of metal, holed with a specific mesh pattern, under which the cutters move back and forth. The foil captures the hair with its holes, cutting it close to the skin and offering a close shave. Foil shavers offer a close shaver and are particularly suited to those with sensitive skin. Popular brands include Braun, Panasonic and Remington. Over half of the shavers we sell are foil based, so they remain a very popular choice with shavers to suit all shaving requirements and budgets.
