So what’s the best electric shaver for men? With so many different brands and styles out there, it’s sometimes a bit of a headache trying to decide which one is right for you. We’ve separated the list into two separate blade-type categories foil and rotary. The best blade-type for you depends on the length of your hair, its thickness and sensitivity of your skin. Here are some of our picks for the best electric razors on the market today.

While this shaver is more expensive than some others listed here, its high tech functions may make it worth the investment. It’s “Aquatech” lubrication features advertise that the razor can be used without shaving cream. You may want to be cautious about this, but it is definitely something to consider.
