Disposable Shavers Vs Electric Shavers

The purchase price assortment of disposable shavers can vary from a buck each to even 15 dollars upwards based on how much you're prepared to fork out for. But the question is if the overall price of disposable razors tend to be less costly than the cost of a mid-range electric shavers and what are the key differences. As an electric shaver user myself, I ceased using the electric shaver and switched to manual razors for around 2 weeks to get the best outcomes and also to let my facial hair get accustomed to the feeling of a manual razor.

Disposable razors

Disposable razors are excellent if you are going on a short eliminate because of its small form factor and also the weight. Additionally, most men prefer it since there's literally no maintenance needed for it and you can easily replace it after they are blunt or if they spoil. Disposable razors are proven to present subpar performance particularly for the cheaper versions which includes two blades however, you can always pay more to get a version that will provide you with a closer shave and better coverage. For the cheaper models you're able to get in a pack of 3 or 5 at greater than $1 per shaver or even the higher end models at $5-10 bucks per shaver.

Experience with disposable shavers

$1 shavers

My experience of using disposable shaver for around 2 months really varied on the model, For the more affordable models that cost about $1 per shaver, the experience I got was largely negative, this is especially so in the event that you have a tendency to have a lot more facial hair. I found myself with more shaving foam since it was constantly getting stuck along with a great deal of stray hairs that were not cut. The performance of the blades was also a hit and miss with a few of them being less sharp as I would like it to. I will not mention brands because the majority of the different brands I picked was giving me the same results. The life of these shavers tend to be roughly 2-3 weeks with some of them even showing some rust although I dried them after usage. I figured that these models were really meant for people on vacation or need little to no shaving performed in their face.


My experience with utilizing this price range razors were considerably better. They also perform much better and I can use it without using shaving foam. They also last much longer, a few of the models even lasting more than two months, far past my experimentation duration. Overall the 5-$10 range performed really well but the comfort of working with an electric shaver still trumped the guide sander. The razors within this price range is really for people who are on long holidays or does some shaving on a daily or fortnight basis.

Electric shavers

Although I'm an electrical shaver user, I have to say I liked using the more expensive disposable razors but after coming back into an electrical shaver, I simply did not want to return to a manual razor. Yes, a manual razor still offers you the closest shave you can get but today's electric shavers are also capable of accomplishing exactly the same but provide you with greater comfort and purposes. Employing a Braun 3series 340s-4 Wet & Dry Shaver as a comparison to the guide razors, I discovered the Braun for a excellent performer in terms of comfort. It gave me no problems even shaving close to my chin and neck region that I found little difficulty using the 5-$10 disposable razors. The Braun could also be utilised as a wet shaver which was a bonus especially after showering. However, maintenance was of course much more difficult than a disposable razor. Cleaning the machine took me 5 minutes at times that included eliminating the metal foil, the blades and cleaning the device. However, this maintenance only had to be done every week so that it wasn't that troublesome to do. In general, being a user of a high end electric shaver with self-cleaning capabilities I was pretty satisfied with the Braun 3 Series performance. As for price, the Braun 3 Series just cost me $60 dollars and I can foresee myself with this for probably 1-2 years until I need to replace some parts. In other words, if you are looking for an affordable way to shave, the best electrical shaver is still the best method. Even though it costs significantly more at the start, you save overall in the long term.
