Unless you shave with the cheapest set of disposable razors, you have likely noticed how expensive the replacement cartridges have become. Gillette and Schick dominate the market, and prices have soared over the past decade.While the initial cost of an electric shaver may be higher, over time you can save a significant amount of money.
When the WSJ looked at the total cost of shaving using a manual razor they found the yearly cost using Gillette ProGlide blades could cost between $54 and $163. Think DollarShaveClub is the cheapest? WSJ found that a full year of razors from DollarShaveClub executive series would set you back $108. Even our top pick for the best electric shaver can often be found for less than $170. If you choose our #1 pick you would save more money than shaving manually before the warranty even expired on your new shaver.

Anyone that has shaved with a disposable or multi-blade razor knows that they seem to dull the second you take them out of the packaging. Most people use these razors until they are as dull as a stone due to their ridiculous prices. As the blades on the razors become dull they can cause skin irritation, missed spots, and uneven shave.
With electric shavers, the results remain consistent as the blades remain sharp for years. Many shavers include a cleaning and charging stand to ensure the shaver is always in an optimal condition to get a great shave. If you are struggling with razor bumps or skin irritation, it may be time to try an electric shaver.

Unlike traditional razors that come with simple and straight-edged blades attached to a holder, many electric shavers are a fully featured grooming tool allowing users to personalize their shave. Most shavers come with integrated trimmers that allow you to shape a mustache, goatee or beard for your desired look. Some electric shavers come with a beard comb attachment which helps achieve an overall smooth appearance. Cleaning and charging stands mean that your electric shaver is always sanitized and fully charged. Using a clean shaver reduces the chances of skin irritation and razor bumps.

You may think that manual razors are far more portable than their electric competitors, but have you ever tried shaving away from a sink with a traditional razor? With electric razors, you can be sure that no matter where your are traveling, a fresh shave will always be possible.

With most electric shavers you have the option of wet or dry shaving. A dry shave skips out on the process of applying a shaving gel, cream, or lather and skips right to the shaving part. A few minutes may not seem like much, but one to two minutes per day can add up. If you saved two minutes per day shaving over 50 years, you would have 25 days to spend on much more fulfilling activities.
