Rotary Vs. Foil Shavers, Which Should You Choose?
As a proven time and effort saver, electric shaving gives you more convenience with the help of advanced technology. They often say “a great quick shave is better than a perfect one.”
Whether shaving in the shower or tackling your body hairs or even just fading your beard neckline, there will always be an electric shaver that will do the job for you.
Foil shavers use oscillating blades in a straight head, also known as cutters, underneath is a foil used to cut hair. The foil is the thin layer of metal, holed to form a mesh type of pattern that covers the cutters.
The foil captures the hair by using its holes, cutting it close to the skin resulting in a close shave
While rotary shavers usually have three (3) circular heads that have an internal spinning cutter that cuts the stubble being captured by the outer stationary guard.
They are specifically designed to follow the contours of your face, as you move the shave using a circular motion, the hairs fall into the annular grooves and are cut using a tiny scissor-like blade.
The circular motion makes it much easier to maneuver around hard to reach areas like the neck and chin.
If you’re using a foil shaver, you should go to the most sensitive areas first, before the shaver heats up and causes irritation to your skin. Always shave against the grain and in straight lines. Do not attempt a circular motion on a foil shaver only with a rotary shaver.
There you have our top recommendations for a close shave. Which one is right for you of course will depend on your budget and your individual wants and needs.
In the end though, these are all solid razors and should get the job done.
