Buying an electric razor is a strange kind of treat and there is something self indulgent about the purchase of a razor that is both exciting and unexplainable.

The electric razor is really mainly a product for men, so the guide will focus on these models, with part 3 dedicated to the woman’s electric razor range.
History of the electric razor
Electric razors were invented between the two world wars and were first patented in the 1920s in America. The first brand to develop the razor was Remington, who are still a major manufacturer to this day although they are now more famous for hair products and straighteners than razors. They still remain one of the best selling brands on the market today though, along with Braun, Phillips and Panasonic who will all be discussed in what follows here.
Wet and dry skin electric razors
The early electric razors were for use on dry skin only and some to this day are still best used on dry skin. However, there are now models for use on both wet and dry skin, making it simply to shave in the bath, shower or on the move. Since the mid-1960s battery powered electric razors have been on the market meaning you don’t have to have cords and cables in your bathroom and that you can shave easily when travelling or not at home. Nowadays, one of these modern electric battery powered razors is a key part of any man’s wash bag.
