Features to Consider
When shopping for a great electric razor, foil or rotary, there are some basic elements or features to look for.
Power. This is one of the most important features of an electric razor. You don’t want to spend all day shaving especially if it takes you longer to shave with an electric shaver than a safety razor, then why would you buy one? Try to look for razors with at least 10,000 cycles per minute. As you look at more expensive shavers this number will increase.
If you have a thicker or heavier beard you may have trouble finding a razor powerful enough to get the job done under $100.
Maintenance. This is another important feature. Try to look at how often you might need to replace the head on your shaver. Some might go two years and others may only go one year. OF course this will vary from person to person as well depending on the thickness of your beard and the frequency of use.
Obviously if you have to shave every day with a thick beard you will have to replace your heads faster. If this is the case you should look and see how much the replacements costs. This could add up over time.
Most companies recommend to replace the heads on your shavers every 12 months or so but you may be able to stretch this out to 18 months depending on usage.
Foil vs. Rotary. You may have a preference or you may not. Usually the rotary electric shavers will perform around the contours of your face better than the foil shavers. It also said the foil shavers will get a little closer of a cut.
So, there is some give and take here but again, the preference will depend on the person. If you have sharp jaw lines or a prominent chin, maybe you should opt for a rotary.
Or if you want the closest shave possible maybe you should get a foil.
Either way both types will come with different types of lifting technologies that help raise your hair to give you the closest shave possible. Do your research and you will be able to make an informed decision.
Special Features for Sensitive Skin. Not all razors have specific features aimed to alleviate irritation if you have sensitive skin. If you have sensitive skin you will want to look for these features.
Some have special surfaces that they place on the heads to help reduce friction. Other razors have different speed settings to help eliminate redness or razor bumps.
From the many reviews we have done there are several features that are pretty standard these days or don’t vary much from shaver to shaver. One is the batteries. Sure one might give you 50 minutes of shaving after a full charge and another might only give you 45…so what?
Do you really care about 5 minutes?
LED displays. Pretty much any electric razor will at minimum have a display that will tell you when the battery is low. Which if you think about it, is pretty much all you need. Some of the more expensive shavers will have full displays that might give you a battery percentage, when to clean or even when to replace the head.
Wet/Dry shaving. This is also pretty standard these days. Even the electric razors under $100 are mostly capable of wet/dry shaving.
So this is not really a feature you need to seek out as most of them have it included. However it is nice to know you can hop in the shower or use a shaving cream!
There are a handful of these electric shavers under $100 that do not offer wet & dry shaving so be sure to look at that if you think you want this feature. Even if you don’t think you will use it it makes cleaning easier and you never know, you may change your mind one day!
Trimmer. When you are looking at electric shavers under $100 not all of them come with a mustache trimmer. Some of them are sold as attachments so if this is important to you then definitely make sure the shaver you like comes with this.
OK enough jibber jabber, the moment you have been waiting for!
Panasonic ES-LT41-K Arc3 Wet Dry Electric Razor
This is, on our opinion, one of the best, especially if you like foil razors. Not only does it come with your standard 2 year limited warranty, it also comes with a 30 day money back guarantee. This just goes to show you Panasonic stands behind their product which should make you feel comfortable with your purchase
Read our full review here.
It comes with all your basic standard features but boast a powerful motor with over 13,000 cycles per minute!
The main feature that we like is that each of the 3 nanotech blades have their own suspension. This allows the blades to stay close to your skin even around the contours of your neck, chin and jawline. Panasonic really stepped up their game with this feature.
It also has a pretty nice LED display for being just under $100.
There are over 800 happy customers that give this shaver an average rating of 4.3/5 stars. You can read the reviews on Amazon.
PHILIPS NORELCO ELECTRIC SHAVER 5500 WET & DRY, S5370/86
A close runner up is the Philips Norelco Electric Shaver 5500 WET & DRY, S5370/86. Even though this rotary shaver doesn’t quite pack the same punch it is still well worth the $94 price tag.
If you prefer rotary shavers to foil shavers than this would be a good one for you.
Read our full review here.
The main feature we love is its turbo mode! The turbo mode gives you a 10% boost in power so you can finish your shave even fast. Or this is helpful if you have a heavy beard.
It is also easy to clean and comes with a precision trimmer. Two little added bonuses for the price point.
This one didn’t get as high a rating on Amazon but it still has over 300 reviews which is a nice sample size. You can read them for yourself.
Philips Norelco 1150X/46 Shaver 6100
Here is another top Philips candidate. The main reason we didn’t list this one at number two is it doesn’t come with a trimmer like the 5500 model.
Read our full review here.
However, this is still a quality shaver for under $100. The main feature we like on this one is its DualPrecision rotary heads.
This feature uses two different slots that help give you the closest shave. One cuts your normal hairs and the other, smaller hole, lifts the remaining stubble to give you a cut below the skin level.
It also has a better shaving surface with its SkinGlide technology which will help those of you with sensitive skin out there.
The Shaver 6100 boasts a nice 4.2/5 stars on Amazon with over 1,500 reviews! It might take you a while to get through them all but have a look for yourself.
PANASONIC ES8243A ARC4 ELECTRIC RAZOR FOR MEN
This Panasonic Arc4 is slightly less than Arc3 above but it has more than twice the reviews on Amazon and a slightly higher rating at 4.4/5 stars!
Read our full review here!
It has many similar features but as the name implies you get the fourth blade in the foil head. This allows for greater efficiency with each blade giving you 13,000 cuts per minute! This reduces your shave time.
It also has a more advanced digital display that shows you:
- Battery indicator with 5 levels
- Cleaning reminder
- Sonic vibration cleaning mode
- Head replacement reminder
- Usage timer
This is one of Panasonic’s most highly rated electric shavers and with such great ratings it is no wonder it is so popular. Check out reviews yourself!
Panasonic ES-LT33-S Arc3 Electric Razor
Another Arc3? Yes this one is the LT33 which is built with just a little less power than the LT41, however, it is still a a great shaver for less than $100.
Read our full review here.
It has nearly all the features as the LT41 with just two minor differences. The first is that the motor is slightly less powerful with only 13,000 cuts per minute instead of 14,000. You shouldn’t really notice this all that much but if you have a thicker beard or more sensitive skin you may want to opt for the LT41.
The other minor difference is the LED display only has a 5 stage power display while the LT41 has 10 stages. Again not a big deal and this is one of those ‘bells and whistle’ type feature that doesn’t really matter a whole lot. With 5 minutes worth of charging you can get a full shave anyway.
It is almost like Panasonic made the LT41 after this model realizing they can make it better for pretty much the same price as there is only a $1 difference on Amazon.
This razor does have a slightly higher rating but on many less reviews.
Well there you have it these are our top recommendations. We hope you enjoy whichever razor you choose. Just think about which features are important to you and go from there.
We hope you can see why we think these are some good choices to start with. They have almost all of the features that we listed and some of them have even recently take a price decrease with the new year like we mentioned earlier. So be sure to check the current price on Amazon.
Just because these shavers cost less than $100 does not mean they are cheap. With the right care and maintenance, you should see 10 years of use out of them, easy.
This is a great article and definitely a helpful one. I’m currently in need of a shaver, however I’m sick of the low quality ones that never last long. But the ones you have outlined in this post seems like something I would like and enjoy for many months to come.
My favorite is probably the Philips Norelco 1150X/46 Shaver 6100, and because the reviews on Amazon seem to be over 4 stars!
Thank you kind sir,
Hey Brandon, I think it would be safe to say that you would get many years of enjoyment from one of these razors. All of these electric shavers are less then $100 as well so I think you would get your money’s worth of shaving out of them. Good luck with your purchase!
Lawrence Gregory says
I must admit, this is a very helpful post on the best electric shavers and I now know where to go the next time I’m in need of a shaver!
Hi Lawrence, I’m glad you found this post helpful. I’m sure you won’t have a problem finding a great razor, especially for under $100!
Great review here! I’m new to this field since I’ve always used a standard straight razor. I really like the look of the Phillips razor you recommended. That’s a pretty great rating on Amazon too! I would probably need a rotary razor since I have a pretty sharp jaw line. How long do you think it would take to shave completely with one of these razors? I have a pretty normal beard, not too thick. Thanks!
Hi Sam, it should only take a few minutes to get a complete shave. If you went with the Philips 5500 Shaver that has the turbo mode, this would allow you to shave even faster assuming you don’t have issues with irritation. Let me know how it works for you if you decide to get one!
Xdeem Li says
I always been a fan of Panasonic, been using their shavers for many years now. Thanks for the article, will keep in mind when it’s time for a new shaver.
Yes Xdeem, the Arc3 is one of the better electric shavers for under $100! Considering the price it has a powerful motor and you should get many years of use out of it.
Very well researched! Very clean lines and your site is laid out perfectly. I have been looking for a razor for the hubby so I am bookmarking your page until I get closer to a purchase.
Thanks for your kind words Billie! Any of these would make a great gift for your husband. You might want to check back coming up on Cyber Monday just after Black Friday, you might be able to get an even better deal!
I never knew that there was so much to consider when buying a shaving razor and I certainly never knew you could find so many different types with all these features!
Hey Emma, yes there are many features to look for when buying an electric razor. They are pretty common across different brands/models but the subtle differences can actually make big differences in performance. Plus all of the razors on this is post are under $100 so you are really going to get some great value!
Wow! I didn’t know there were so many different types of shavers and so much to consider. My fiance uses a rechargeable shaver and keeps it in the car for when he didn’t have time to shave before leaving for work. He needs a new one. I may get one of your recomendated ones. Thanks
Hi Sandra, one of these electric shavers would be a great gift for your fiance. Especially since they are all under $100. If he has had his for a while it may be outdated and the technology that is out there today in these razors will surely have a much better performance than his old razor.
Great article, Jeremy. I’m a traditionalist as far as shaving goes (DE and old-fashioned soap / brush). However, your article covers some great tips for what to shop for when going electric (I’ve bought a lot of bunk electric shavers in the past) and this is due to simply not being aware of what to look for, which you’ve presented very well. I appreciate the additional Amazon reviews and links for further details on the best men’s shavers that you’ve recommended. Under $100 and several years (plus) of performance – sounds like an easy decision – cheers!
No worries Mike I also enjoy a thorough shave every once in a while with a safety razor, however, most of the time I am too lazy and quick to reach for my electric shaver. The good thing is you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to get a quality electric shaver. All of these that are under $100 and their performance exceeds that value. I’m glad you enjoyed the article!
Thanks for giving the rundown on what to look for when shopping for razors and what to consider when pricing. My dad’s in need of a new shaver and has been using his current one for a good while.
On average, what cheaper price-range should people consider spending a year as far as razors go? Counting maintenance, bells and whistles. I ask, because the cheaper, regular brands of mens razors seem way too expensive for something so heavily relied upon. I feel like tools should be bought at a price fit for their longevity, if that makes sense.
Companies charging so much for something people need for daily routine, just because said industries know it’s the only route, seems ridiculous to me. Maybe I’m too skeptical. Maybe that’s just business. A nice one-time buy for a long duration, however, seems way cheaper in the long-run than buying overpriced disposable razors every 2 weeks.
Hi Dawn, I think it comes down to personal preference. If you have the time (and money) to shave with safety razors you will definitely get a closer shave than any of these electric razors. That is just because of the way they are built. They have to a layer between the skin and blade to protect the skin so electric shavers will never get as close. Most companies take a loss on the disposable razor itself but like you mentioned make serious money on the replacement cartridges. That is unfortunately their business model. However, with one of these electric shavers, depending on frequency of use and how thick your father’s beard is, you may not have to replace the head for 12-18 months if you keep it clean. The razor itself should last over 10 years if taken care of as well. Hope that helps!
I”m not exactly someone who shaves, as if my picture didn’t make that plainly obvious lol. But I know my fair share of men who do need a new pair of clippers and this seems right up their alley.
Each of them is for a great price too. I’m going to keep this page on stand by and come back when I have enough money. Should make a great Christmas gift.
Do any of these clippers have an age range? Like are they better for younger adult men or could they work for men in their 50’s and beyond that?
I’d like to know ahead of time because most of the people in my family would be at last 50 or older, I don’t know if that makes much of a difference or not though, but I felt that I should check anyway.
None of these electric shavers are age dependent, they should work equally well on any age. They don’t discriminate!
You are right these electric shavers are reasonable priced under $100 and would make great Christmas gifts. With the holiday season right around the corner, be sure to check the price on Amazon frequently from one of the links above to see if any of these go on sale.
I’m expeciting a lot of great deals for Cyber Monday!
I have had Philips electric shavers in the past and personally I do not like the 3 shaving heads. For me when one broke It was cheaper to get a whole new electric shaver then replace a single head. I really like the foil Panasonic shavers for that reason. Thanks for your recommendations, how have these shavers been tested against each other?
I’m curious to know why you found it more expensive to replace the whole shaver vs. replacing the heads? Normal wear and tear requires you to replace them every 12-18 months anyway based on usage. Some of the replacement heads are only around $20?
If you look at the reviews on Amazon for several of these razors, many of the customers own multiple razors and often offer a side by side comparison. You can even find some users who use one shaver on one side of his face and another on the opposite to get a true side by side comparison.
I really wish I read your article a year ago when I bought my husband a shaver. I will keep your blog in mind if I need to purchase him one in the future. I didn’t know there are so many features to look for. Very informative article. Easy to read and excellent picture quality.
Thanks Kay, I wish you would have read this blog too! Even though these razors are less than $100 they will still last a long time so I doubt you will need to replace your husbands shaver unless he breaks it or something like that.
My father in law has been complaining a lot recently about how his shaver isn’t working very well. I don’t blame him, because he has been using that shaver for about three years I think. It was a japanese brand which is supposed to be good, but you know, everything has a lifespan. I will recommend your shavers to him to see what he saids. He mentioned recently that his shaver takes him ten to fifteen extra minutes to shave which is such a waste of time. Thank you for the recommendations.
Hey there, has your father in law every replaced the head on his electric shaver? They are usually only good for about 12-18 months before you need to replace them. If not, this could be why his shaver is not working like it did in the beginning. At three years it should still work fine. Another thing to check would be the battery.
However, let me know which electric shaver he decides on and how it works for him!
Good thing I stumbled upon this article today. Due to increased workload I barely had time to shave like I used to. In the past I would shave at least 3 times a week to keep myself look smart, but now I only had time to shave on Sunday! So I’m thinking of getting an electric razor which can save me time from the conventional shaving.
Based on your recommendation I think I’ll give the Philip Norelco a try, as it is rotary based and It has the turbo mode feature. Not sure how much faster but I’ll try my luck. =)
Hey Gary, if you are short on time then an electric shaver is definitely the way to go. If you go with the Phillips model make sure you get the trimmer as well. Since you are only shaving once a week you would probably need to shave down with the trimmer first to get a more efficient shave with the actual rotary head on the electric shaver.
If you do decide to get taht one please let me know how it works for you!
I am glad I found this website!
I like the majority of the people in the world have to live on a tight budget and finding a razor that does not cost an arm and a leg is hard to find.
One that works good anyway!
I really like the PANASONIC ARC 4 and think that it is one that I will be trying out.
I’m curious though, Does it have a money back guarantee or some kind of warranty?
Just want to know before I get a head of myself and buy something that I will be stuck with if I don’t like it.
Hey Jason, a lot of people are in the same boat, they just want to find a quality electric shaver that won’t kill their bank account. The Arc4 is a great choice, I’m sure you will be happy but in case you’re not Panasonic does have a 30 day return policy.
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an authorization and you will need to send them back everything that was in the box along with your purchase receipt .
They also have a limited 2 year warranty.
Hope that helps!
I have an old Braun 7 series razor and it’s been a really reliable shaver for many years now. I’ve replaced the screen and blades a few times, but the motor is getting worn out now and not holding a charge like it used to, so I’m looking to replace it with a new one.
I like lists like this one here that lay out the details and the pros and cons of a selection of men’s shavers. It gives me more information to make an informed decision on which one is best for me. Thanks. Great prices too.
You must have had it for many many years if it is starting to fail! I wonder if it could be the battery?
Anyway, if you want to see even more comparisons of electric shavers for men, feel free to check out my top 10 list of the best electric shavers . Some of them are a little more than $100 but these are some of the best shavers we have found.
Thank you thats going to make choosing my hubbies xmas present a lot easier
Anytime Bridget, I hope your husband enjoys whatever electric shaver you decide to go with!
Thanks for your recommendations! I personally have always gone for phillips and rotary and I don’t think I could manage without the trimmer part.
However, can I ask your opinion on something. When the ‘lift and cut’ facility first came out I was very excited – they were promising a cut as close as you would get with a razor! However practically I now wonder whether it was just a gimmick – does it really work? What’s your feeling about it?
While the lift and cut technology may have enabled the electric razor to cut closer before it will never be as close as a safety razor. Because they have to use the foil to protect your skin there is always going to be that thickness (however thick the foil is) that it can’t cut.
However, it can get really close but it won’t compare to going against the grain with a blade. If you don’t have a thick or fast growing beard though an electric shaver is a great option.
Thanks for your comment!
I was looking at your shavers. I stopped using an electric razor because of my sensitive skin. After reading your site I found something I could to try.
I’m not ready to spend a lot of money on something that may not work for me. Do you have other price range?
Lenard, using an electric razor, as I mentioned in this post can actually help those with sensitive skin. Most of the time irritation is cause when facial hair is cut too short, below the skin with a safety razors. When this happens the hair can curl and grow back into the skin causing razor bumps.
Because electric razors cannot cut hair this short, they tend to cause less irritation.
Unfortunately, if you have sensitive skin, I wouldn’t recommend going for a cheap razor. The electric razors will perform better and more efficiently at the higher priced models which would hopefully reduce the amount of time you spend shaving and therefore reduce irritation.
I hope that helps!
There are so many shavers to pick from. I have had difficulty finding the right facial hair removal. I usually use disposable shavers. But I have also tried other products like cream hair removal and wax. Non of these products really work for me. So maybe I should try using an electrical shaver.
Hey Ely, Creams are not going to work as well as a blade, electric or not. How often are you buying disposable razors? If you are only using them for a week like you could potentially save money by switching to electric shaver.
They last for up 10 years and sometimes even more. Plus you only have to replace the head ever 12-18 months depending on your usage.
Anyway, if you decide to give electric shaving a try you won’t go wrong with any of these, especially for the price!
Derek Marshall says
Excellent article and most definately I site I am going to reffer to as I seek out an electric shaver.
I Personally, am unfortunately Barney Rubble personified when it comes to tough fast grown facial hair. From your information I can’t quite find which one is best suited for me. I looking for something that gives a good quality deep cut and is easy and quick to use.
Which one do you reccommend?
Unfortunately, if your hair grows that fast and is thicker you will probably have to jump out of the $100 range. I think something like the Braun 7 series might be better for you. It has a powerful motor that should help you get through your shave faster.
Of course, by design electric shavers will never get as close as a safety razor but if you are looking for the convenience vs. wet shaving than these electric shavers would be just fine.
I hope that helps!
Marlinda Davis says
This info was very helpful. My hubby was actually just saying how he wanted to get another electric shaver.
I was thinking about getting it for him as a gift for his birthday but have no idea about them, lol. Your explanations are really easy to understand too.
Thanks for stopping by Marlinda, these electric shavers would make great gifts!
Please let me know which one you decide on for your husband and how he likes it!
Back in the day when I commuted to work, I would shave in the car. We do crazy things when we have a job. I still use an electric shaver for convenience and every year they get better and better.
The challenge for me has been to know which razor would be the best choice. Your article saves me a lot of headache and prices are right in line with Santa’s budget.
I’m glad you found this post about electric shavers under $100 helpful! You are right, they would make great Christmas gifts.
The good thing about these razors is that with a full charge you should get 45-50 min of shaving time so you would only have to worry about charging them at the beginning of the week. This would defiitely save you time if you still shave while you commute to work.
Really great and thorough review of these razors. I never knew there was so many nuances to a man’s shaver before now. You’ve presented a lot of information in a clear and concise article that will help not only men, but women who may be buying razors for a man during the holiday season. And I love the pop-up detailing a chance to win a razor–great idea and makes me glad I took the time to read the article.
Hey Anthony, glad you enjoyed the article. Your are right these electric razors would make great gifts during the holiday season because of the quality you get at this price point. If you didn’t already sign up for our newsletter we are always reviewing new products and offering shaving tips to help men get rid of unwanted facial hair around the world!
I think it’s time I start to invest in an electric shaver as I’ve never had one before and don’t really know what I should look for in an electric shaver.
Reading your post and reading some of the reviews of different brands of electric shavers and what you should look for when looking to buy one has helped tremendously especially when it comes to buying electric razors for around $100 or less.
An electric shaver is definitely worth the investment. If you are using disposable cartridges and replacing them every week, you could end up spending $20 a month for those. So one of these razors would be paid for in 5 months or less.
I’m glad you enjoyed the post, if you end up making a purchase please let me know how it turns out!
Hi there Jeremy, I was just about to get something for my boyfriend this Christmas and did thought about shavers. He doesn’t groom very often and can be quite forgetful sometimes.
I like your recommendation, but I am also thinking of something more fun like the Dollar Shave Club subscription. Do you have any experience with that company? They seems pretty affordable too.
Good point, dollar shave clubs are affordable at first glance. However, remember it is a recurring subscription. So depending on the level of service you purchase you will have to continually pay that fee as long as you want to keep the disposable cartridges coming.
Say you opted for the $10/month option. Well after two years you have spent $240.
If you purchase a $100 electric razor and replaced the head once in those two years for around $25 then you can see you saved almost $100. Generally you have to replace the head every 12-18 months depending on use. Your boyfriend may even be able to stretch that to 24 months since he doesn’t shave very often.
Plus, the electric shavers can last for over 10 years with proper care so the savings can really add up over time.
I hope that helps!
Good post. I used to use an electric shaver but the affordable ones never offered enough of a close shave and those that did were so expensive. So I’m glad that there are good options for under a $100. The wet/dry feature is something i am most interested in.
Electric shavers can give you a close shave and with today’s technology they are the closest they have ever been. However, because of the nature of the design, they will never get as close as a blade.
So there is a little bit of a trade off for convenience but it is well worth the investment.
Great reviews, I know which one to get for my husband next time. Very clear review and so many men’s shavers style and brand out there, this article help me out on which one to pick.
Thanks for sharing the information. The Philips brand sounds great and under $100 is perfect
Yes Philips has been around for many years and offers quality products. They especially excel at rotary electric shavers which would be good for your husband if he has a strong jaw line. Rotary shavers tend to work better than foil shavers around the contours of your face.
Please let me know how the shaver works for your husband!
Chris Towers says
I remember when these electric razors were so expensive… they would literally break the bank.
Personally I prefer to wet shave. I think it is something I got from the military, but there are times when I am busy and have a tight schedule and i could use one of these.
I can see from your information here the Philips S5370/86 also has a wet shave option. This is the first time I have seen this function on an electric shaver.
The prices are very good now compared to what they used to be, so I will be coming back for more information.
Electric razors have really come a long way in terms of price and technology. A few of these shavers will give you the option to wet shave and almost all of these will as well.
Let me know which one you go with and how it works out for you!
After wrecking my face this morning before going to work without realising it (blood on the collar, not good. Lucky the shirt is dark…) reading this article has come at a good time for me. I have thick facial hair but am clean shaven. I noticed in the article that you mentioned they wouldn’t be ideal for men with thick beards so am I right in presuming you mean it’s ok for those of us with thick facial hair who are clean shaven and shave on a daily basis?
Hey Byron, if you have thicker hair you may need to spend a little more on an electric shaver. I wrote another post that might have some more powerful shavers that would help give you a closer, more efficient shave so you don’t spend too much time in the morning.
I like your article on affordable electric shavers. I really like the Panasonic ES-LT41-K Arc3 Wet Dry Electric Razor, I am going to read your full review after I finish this comment. It is nice to know that there are still great products out there that don’t break the bank. I also love money back guarantees. 13,000 cycles a minute sounds amazing, It should cut very nice.
Thanks for stopping by Kenny, the Arc3 is a great choice and is very popular on Amazon. You are right at 13,000 CPM this electric razor will give you an effective and efficient shave so you can get on with your morning.
Great Article and something that I’m sure many men will appreciate. I didn’t believe that foil vs rotary was a big thing but its a great write up about it. Iv been wanting to purchase something different for a while and this page really gives me a better understanding about what i actually want.
Thanks for the read
Hey Lee, yes you will have some men who swear by a foil electric shaver and another who can’t stand them. Finding out what needs you have is a great way to start when deciding on what kind of electric shaver you want to buy.
I’m glad you enjoyed the post!
After doing a serious search in the web, I found your site and really convince me to buy , the Panasonic ES-LT41-K Arc3 Wet Dry Electric Razor, I think is the kind of razor I’ m looking, I will let you know how it goes, this would be my gift for Holidays to me HoHoHo
Thanks for your support
The Arc3 is definitely one of the more popular electric shavers under $100. I think you will love this gift to yourself. I look forward to hearing your review after you have used it for a few days!
I never really thought about the power of an electric razor. I thought they were same. Now I know better.
I also prefer the rotary shavers over the foil. For me I think they just do a better job.
Right now I am anticipating getting the Philips Norelco 1150X/46 Shaver 6100 that you have in your review.
That is awesome Chris, you won’t be disappointed with the shaver 6100, especially since you like rotary heads over foil shavers.
If you do decide to purchase one of these electric shavers under $100, I would love to hear how it works for you!
My husband has the Philips one with two circular heads but I think it is time to “upgrade” to a better version since it has been in use for quite some time now and I am looking for a gift to give him for Christmas anyway.
The three circular heads from Philipps looks good and affordable. I might get the S5370/86 from Philips again.
Thanks for the list!
If he likes the brand you should stick with Philips. I’m sure if you upgrade to the S5370/86 with three heads it will be a nice improvement. Just make sure you get the trimmer attachment!
I have been looking for an electric shaver for my husband – wanted to make a present for him as his old shaver is really old. But I don’t have a lot of understanding in this topic 🙂 So your article is very helpful as it also indicates what to pay attention to when looking for a shaver. However, I will not need this info anymore as your article also helped me to make my decision. Thanks again!
I’m glad you found enough information to decide which electric shaver you want to purchase for your husband. Please let us know which one you go with and how he likes it. I know it will be a perfect gift!
Hi Jeremy, it is a good post on best electric shavers below $100. You have provided all information in an article which is easy to understand and access rather than searching for the best shaver online shopping websites.
I am going to share this with my husband and he must going to like it.
Hey thanks for sharing with your husband I really hope he enjoys it! If you decide to make a purchase please let me know which electric razor you go with and how he likes it!
This is a really information piece on electric shavers and I really appreciate all the information you provided. I used to use electric shavers all the time, but haven’t for the last 10 years. For me, they just didn’t give me a close enough shave. But after reading your post it seems like there have been a lot of advancements made in the technology so it’s probably worth another shot.
You are right, they don’t get as close as a blade, because of their design there has to be a layer of protection between your skin and the blades or I’m sure there would be plenty of law suits.
However, they do get fairly close, this one in particular, we have tested and found this to be true.
Great information, I have always had a difficult time with shaving, they either leave to many razor bumps and irritation or don’t get a close enough shave that just leaves my skin feeling ridged and rough.
You have mentioned some great products that I am interested in giving a try. Particularly, the PANASONIC ES8243A ARC4 ELECTRIC RAZOR FOR MEN.
Thanks, All the best.
Thanks for stopping by, the Arc4 is definitely a great electric shaver. Electric shavers in general tend to cause less irritation becuase they do not cut as close to the skin as a blade. I actually wrote about some tips for shaving if you have sensitive skin here.
My wife saw what I was doing and asked and then said don’t tell me. I’ve asked for one for x-mass. I very much enjoyed your post and found it very enlightening I like your graphics and descriptions. I haven’t used an electric for a little over 25 years but after 9 surgeries in the last year my face is a little tender. So again thanks for the information.
Hey Chappy, man nine surgeries in one year I can only imagine! I had one on my ACL this year and that was enough surgery for me.
If you have your face is senstiive you may want to check out one of these razors.
Interesting list of shavers. Although I don’t use them yet, haha but I will definitely consider one of them next time when I need it because I do not want something too expensive and cheap at the same time. I’ll definitely bookmark your page and be looking forward to your other post!
Sounds like you found the right place! I hope you find the perfect electric shaver for you!
Very informative article. I now know about the differences beteeen the foil and the rotary razors. I actually never took the time to learn about their differences. I personally own a foil razor but like you say in your article, if I go a few days without shaving, I would be shaving all day with my electric razor. I really like your breakdown and reviews. I will definitely take another look at your website when its time to replace my foil razor. Thanks.
You’re welcome Denis thanks for stopping by!
