Suitable for use in the shower, the cruZer 6 also features a twistable, two sided trimmer

Face it, shaving is a nightmare regardless of how much facial hair you have. Sometimes, just thinking about shaving can give men the shivers.

The thing about shaving is that you can’t rush perfection, and the perfect shave requires patience, accuracy and time.

No matter whatever look you are going for, or even if you are trimming the hair down, one slip up and you can risk losing the design you want your beard to be.

So to help ease the shaving dilemma, DESIblitz brings a list of best 10 best shavers that will make your life that much simpler.

1. Philips Shaver 9000

Product 1Philips’ electric shaver kit packs in a range of equipment to give you the closest possible shave.

V Track blades flex in up to eight directions, while AquaTec technology makes this shaver good for both wet or dry shaving.

Throw in SuperLift grooves to catch low lying hairs and an additional SmartClick trimmer for maintaining beards and moustaches, making it suitable for all faces.

When you’re done, the included SmartClean dock cleans, lubricates and charges your Series 9000 so it’s always ready for the next shave.

It’s a bit pricy but worth a buy, since it offers a variety of shaves.

2. Braun cruZer 6 Face

Product 2For those who want a reliable, versatile shaver, Braun’s cruZer 6 Face offers good functionality and a clean result at a sensible price.
