ÂAn electric razor is a razor powered by an electric motor. It is said that they are not quite as thorough as a classic wet razor. But they are more gentle on the skin. Especially with impure skin, the use of an electric shaver is recommended. While wet shaving necessarily requires care products (preshave and aftershave), shaving with an electric shaver can usually do without it. With many devices even an electric wet shaving is possible, as our wet shaver test shows. Thanks to built-in batteries is also not always a power outlet necessary.
