Best electric shavers and trimmers for men for 2019; Clean shaven or stubble, whatever your facial hair preference, a good electric shaver is a must-have for the modern man. Take a look at our round up of the best shavers you can buy for a razor sharp look.

Byline: Mica Anthony

Electric shavers can be much more time efficient and effective than using a classic razor.

Not only do modern electric shavers bring comfort and convenience, but as they're often moulded and designed to move around the contours of the face they can be a great alternative to traditional shaving techniques.

In contrast with wet razor shave techniques the skin has to be prepped beforehand, and a much more cautious approach must be taken to avoid nicks, cuts and razor burn.

What's more, a good quality electric shaver can cause little to no skin irritation and you can be finished within three minutes, compared to a ten-minute manual shave.

If you're currently using a manual razor and are thinking about making the switch, don't let the cost put you off either.

Although considerably more expensive than the everyday disposable razors, electric shavers are a lot more robust and will last you a long time, so they're definitely worth the investment.

Take a look at our top pick of the best electric shavers you can buy and see which one takes your fancy...
