- Review Lab
This wet-dry shaver has been made in a modern style that will be easy to grip, and it has had many trimmer options attached so that you can keep your beard in good shape and shave around it.
- Happy Body Formula
The razor boasts 4 floating razor which gives efficient and smooth trimming. Enhanced with 3D rotary head, it provides great skin contour for smooth skin without bumps and injuries. The pop-up trimmer allows simple sideburns and beard shaping to your desired design.
- All Top Ratings
The SweetLF IPX7 is a wet or dry shaver, so you can use it with shaving cream. It also has a pop-up trimmer for detail work. The charging is unique: it’s charged with a USB cord. It doesn’t come with a plug, but you can use your cell phone or device plug. It charges fast: a one hour charge provides two hours of shaving time and if it’s out of juice, a quick five minute charge will give you enough power for one shave.

As it’s a fully waterproof shaver, you just need to rinse it under running water once you’re done shaving and leave it out to air dry for a few hours. It does come with a cleaning brush, in case some debris get caught in the shaving head

The SweetLF 3D is provided with automatic grinding technology and self-sharpening blades which will guarantee to minimize cuts or damage on the skin. This technology will also prevent the shaver from pulling on your hair. The self-sharpening blades of the Sweetlf 3D give it a long-lasting life.
- Shaver Guru
Each of the three pivoting heads of this shaver moves independently, making this an excellent device for handling the face’s natural shapes. When it comes to cleaning, this device is IPX7 rated as waterproof so that you’ll easily be able to submerge it and wash away accumulated hair.
- TenBestProduct
The included USB cable enables the use of this device anywhere and anytime. Ideal for frequent travellers and active men.

It has one-hour USB fast charging with 120 minutes of shaving and LED display that shows the battery percentage and status. It offers a close and smooth shave with four-direction floating head, it automatically adapts to the contours of your neck, face or jaw, to offer a close and comfortable shave.
- Top Best Brands
The shaver is totally waterproof and can be cleaned easily via a one-touch pop-up button that opens the top of the shaver. We recommend using this shaver in the shower for best results.
- Hair World Mag
USB quick charging support, LED display, smooth and clean shave results, one touch open, pop up trimmer, wet and dry technology and mute high-speed motor are some of its best features.
- The Keen Hunter
What experts didn't like
The pop trimmer is good for detailing sideburns but is not designed for beard trimming. The device is waterproof and can be rinsed under water, but it does not come with any self-cleaning capabilities.
- Review Lab
The shaver might not give you enough trimming options. This is one of the smaller shavers on the market
- Happy Body Formula
Must use USB to charge (which is good for traveling).
- Heavy

It comes with a USB cable, but it doesn’t feature a charger plug or an adapter. This means you’ll have to use your smartphone charger (or your laptop or any other USB charger). I know that they’re trying to cut down on the costs, but this seems like an unproductive idea.

This won’t grant you a super-close shave without the trimmer. The blades will definitely lose sharpness with use.
- TenBestProduct
Extending the trimmer takes some effort.

However, these heads are a little rough on your skin. Closer shaves run a risk of skin soreness or redness, although shaving cream can assist with this issue.

An Overview On Electric Razors

Getting a nice, clean shave is important, whether you’re heading to work for the day, preparing for a date night or attending a formal function. Even if you don’t go for the totally clean-shaven look all the time, it’s still important to keep your facial hair nice and tidy. Whether you’re trying out a goatee, a mustache or one of the numerous styles of beards, you’re going to need a razor to make it happen.

Depending on your preferences (and your morning routine), you might be considering making the switch from traditional razors to an electric razor — and getting the right one really matters. If you’re tired of lathering up, rinsing your razor every few strokes and accidentally knicking yourself periodically, an electric razor might be an appealing shaving technology for you to try out.

Electric razors plug into a wall socket or a charger, using electricity to vibrate or spin the blades inside the razor. The hairs on your face stick up through a thin piece of metal with holes in it and are then cut by the blades, giving you a close shave. This piece of metal, called the foil, is what touches the skin, rather than the blades touching it directly as they do with a traditional razor. This design makes electric razors very safe — you won’t have to worry about cutting yourself while shaving as you do with a traditional razor. Electric shavers may also eliminate the need to use aftershave, as your skin won’t be as irritated as it gets after you use a traditional razor.

Many people prefer electric razors to traditional razors because they don’t require the use of shaving cream or the hassle that goes along with it (though some electric razors are waterproof and can be used in the shower). Though the blades will eventually need to be replaced, likely after a year or so, they tend to last much longer than traditional razors do.

Though electric razors make some noise while they’re being operated, they aren’t typically loud enough to wake up someone sleeping nearby while you shave. These convenient devices are also easy to pack up and take with you while traveling for business or vacation.

Electric razors cost anywhere between $75 and $300, so they’re not cheap. But when you consider how many razors and bottles of shaving cream you buy in a year, plus the convenience factor, you may determine that the price is worth it.

DYWM Fun Fact

Curious how the electric shaver came to be such a popular bathroom staple? It was invented by Jacob Shick, who obtained a patent for the new device in May 1930. As the story goes, he was inspired to invent the electric razor after suffering from an injury that made it difficult for him to shave. Though the device did not immediately catch on with consumers at the time, it’s now a widely accepted and popular method of shaving.

The Electric Razor Buying Guide

  • One important factor to consider before purchasing an electric shaver is its charge life. Unlike a traditional razor, you’ll need to plan ahead and charge your razor if you have definitive plans to shave soon — this is especially important for events where you absolutely need to shave beforehand, such as a wedding or a job interview. Though it varies from razor to razor, most can operate between 30 minutes and several hours after being fully charged. The Panasonic Arc 5, for example, has a 10-stage LCD battery indicator that lets you know how much battery you have left at any given time.
  • Some electric shavers come with an array of helpful accessories, such as a cleaning kit, a carrying case and a sideburn trimmer. The Panasonic Arc5 comes with a pop-up trimmer for your mustache and sideburns, while the Philips Norelco 8900 comes with a 5-length beard styler with rounded tips and a comb.
  • Regular maintenance of your electric razor is critical for a long, functioning lifespan. You’ll want to use oil or grease to lubricate the electric shaver’s blades periodically, following the recommendations in the device’s instruction manual. If your razor features an element that collects hairs, be sure to clean and empty that component regularly to prevent issues. Some shavers, including the Braun Series 7, will come with their own cleaning kit — when you’re done using the Braun Series 7, simply pop it into the clean and charge station, which automatically recharges and lubricates the shaver. You don’t have to lift a finger.
  • Your purchasing decision will likely come down to whether you want a basic model to toss in your gym bag, or a higher-quality razor with lots of bells and whistles. The Braun Series 9, for example, uses a special technology to read and adapt to your facial hair.
  • You may also want to consider the ergonomics of the electric razor’s handle, since grip comfortability plays a large role in your shaving experience. The Philips Norelco 8900, for instance, uses a special technology that allows each shaving head to move independently from the others. This means that each head can move in eight directions to more closely match the contours of your face and neck, which means you’re more likely to get a perfect shave.
  • If your electric razor doesn’t seem to be functioning properly or getting as close of a shave as you’re used to, considering recharging it, cleaning it and oiling it.
  • Some electric shavers, such as the Philips Norelco 8900, come with a warranty. The Philips Norelco 8900 warranty is good for two years and applies only to shavers purchased and used in the United States and Canada, as long as they were used as intended. The Braun Series 9, Braun Series 7 and the Panasonic Arc5 also come with two-year warranties.
  • If you’ve never used an electric shaver before, you’ll want to be sure to pull your skin taut and hold the razor at a right angle to your face as you move it along. Depending upong the razor and the area you’re shaving, you may need to go over the same place more than once to cut all of the hairs. Keep in mind that the electric shaver may take some getting used to, both for you as the user and for your skin.
