What to Look For
Electric shavers for women are usually less powerful and effective than razors sold for men. Some women prefer to use men’s razors rather than those for women. However, there are a few women’s razors that offer superior cutting technology. Look for razors with multiple cutting surfaces and wet-dry capabilities. Consumer Search.com recommends the Panasonic Close Curves ES 2206AC for a close and effective shave for women. The Remington R7130 Flex 360, designed as a men’s razor, is equally effective as a women’s razor, according to Consumer Search. Galt Tech.com recommends the Panasonic ES2207P Close Curves rechargeable Wet/Dry Ladies Shaver for a cordless version that is very portable.
The problem with many women’s shavers is that they do not cut as closely as a flat razor blade. This means that it will be necessary to shave nearly every day to keep the hair short. Some versions of women’s razors are not compatible with wet use, which increases the time required to get ready. Some ladies choose to use men’s razors as they are designed for sensitive skin and a close shave. Many of the problems with women’s razors can be avoided by choosing a men’s shaver.
