5 Best Electric Razors For Women When A Disposable Razor Won't Do


It's such a great feeling to run your fingers across your freshly-shaven, smooth legs and arms, but sometimes when you're using a disposable razor, you won't get as close of a shave as you'd hope for or worse, if you're in a rush, you'll accidentally cut yourself. For those times when a disposable razor just won't do, I've found the best electric razors for women. Believe me, this is an investment you'll be happy you made for summer and well, forever.

Before I start to list my favorites, let's answer the obvious question. If you're totally Team Disposable Razors, you might be wondering what's the point in getting a good electric razor? Aren't they the same thing, but one is just battery-powered? There are many subtle differences when it comes to choosing disposable or electric, but what it really boils down to is preference.

Both have the potential to give you a smooth shave, it just depends on if you're more of a fast-paced type of gal or the type to enjoy taking your time to shave meticulously. However, if you're Team Disposable Razors, you might want to take note of the fact that electric razors don't cause as many ingrown hairs as disposable razors do. Also, you don't necessarily need gel, shaving cream, lotion or wetness to use it.

Sounds pretty tempting to do a test run of what it feels like to be on Team Electric Razors, right? If you're curious, here are five great electric razors to check out.
