Razor Vs Electric Shaver: What are the differences between razor and shaver?

There are still a lot of men out there that can’t decide whether to opt for a razor or a shaver, and that’s why we wrote this article, to inform you on the disadvantages and advantages of using both an electric shaver and an old fashioned razor.

Pros of Using Electric Shavers:

Well, the main reason that takes most men to use the electric razor is convenience and comfort because the shaving experience is totally different as most shavers tend to follow and adapt to your maxillofacial structure (your face lines).

You also avoid the “prepping for a shave” part you have to take in order to get a manual shave. Another thing to point out is that skin irritation is also lower with shavers – at least with good quality models – and bleeding is nowhere to be found.

These are also speedy, as they reduce your shaving time by around 70% with high-end models like the Panasonic ESLV61-A and by 50% with the remainder.

Durability is also a winner here – as an example, let’s point out the Braun Series 7 790-cc: a shaver which can last up to seven years!

Cons of Using Electric Shavers:

Closeness is really what comes to mind, as most shavers are unable to deliver the same closeness a manual razor offers. Also, shavers are noisy and that sound can grind your gears.

Money is also a con, as you’ll be spending more on shavers, especially if you want to get high-end shavers, though this cost can be justified on the long run.

Pros of Using Razors:

If the blade is good you get a clean shave – disposable blades even get the maintenance problem solved! Another plus is that manual razor are pretty cheap and replacement is easy, whereas with shavers you have to get it repaired or find new parts.

The learning curve isn’t steep and razors are simple to use – they also have no noise and are great to pack for trips.

Cons of Using Razor Blades:

The bleeding cuts are the number 1 con as they are pretty common. Sensitive skins also get irritated when you shave with a razor. It is a long process when compared to using a shaver and if you haste while maneuvering a manual razor, you’ll have a bad time.

You’ll also have to replace your razors pretty regularly.
