Not sure which tool to choose? We test a range of machines to find the gadgets that will keep you looking perfectly groomed
Monday 14 July 2014
Shaving is a personal thing. Do you prefer the slice of a wet shave or the buzz of electric? Electric won’t cut you – though it may not get quite as close. If you decide you want the convenience of electric shaving you then have to choose between rotary blades with circular cutters and foil shavers with straight blades.
We've tried and tested a range on the market, from Panasonic's good-value ES-RW30 Wet and Dry up to Braun's fast-working Series 7 790cc-4, there should be a model for all budgets. Here's our pick of the shavers.

For the full-service effect, the Braun Series 7 is pricey but worth it. For the best value though, the Panasonic ES-RW30 is very hard to beat. And like the Philips, it’s a wet-and-dry model which adds versatility. For rotary fans, Philips is still the brand to go for, with models at every price point.
