Electric razors today look more like Jetson props than mid-century machines. With so many options settings, and styles it can seem a daunting task just to choose one. I have tested the top brands to see which electric razors gives you the best buzz for your bucks. Choosing just the right electric shaver for you or as a gift for someone can be difficult. With the huge range of makes, models and price points to choose from it can quickly become an overwhelming task. So, I have tried and tested the following products.

Firstly, when it comes to rotary electric shavers, Remington is the ultimate by far. This Remington HyperFlex razor gives you a close, confident shave every time. With precision Plus heads smoothly and comfortably cut long hairs and stubble. The HyperFlex technology also allows the entire head to adjust to any angle and also lets you shave dry or in the shower with gel or foam. Plus, the name couldn't be more accurate for this new rotary shaver. Although I've only had this rotary shaver for two weeks I didn't need to recharge the razor at all, it's so quiet that I thought I hadn't given it the initial 24 hour charge time. Rotary shavers worked really well for me due to the circular motion across the face and extremely pleased and highly recommend it.

CruZer Shavers & Trimmers

The CruZer6 beard&head is a powerful tool for styling your beard and head exactly the way you want.

The CruZer6 also includes a small precision trimmer especially designed for beard styling in hard-to-reach areas. It allows effortless moulding of shapes and contours to add the finishing touches to your look.

Delicates & Body Hair Trimmer by Remington

Manscaping is the modern term for when a man removes unwanted body hairs through shaving or trimming. The new BHT250 Delicates & Body Hair Trimmer by Remington is perfect for all the tricky situations and complex areas, this groomer will do tremendous job. I just make it a point to be a little careful in the areas where the skin is loose or uneven. That said, application of cold water helps tighten the flabby skin. Though this groomer can be used wet or dry.

This is an all-in-one grooming solution, with a dual-end design and super lightweight to mention. I love the design of this hair trimmer -it's smooth and sleek and very easy to maneuver.

For any guy who has tried to shave his back with just a regular razor, you know how difficult that can be, not to mention the awkward stretching of your arm muscles (which you'll still feel a day later). The new BHT250 Delicates & Body Hair Trimmer by Remington makes this a non-issue and ladies, this would make the best present too.

Braun Series 3 3040s Wet and Dry Electric Shaver

My current must have, is the new Braun Series 3 3040s Wet and Dry Electric Shaver rechargeable electric shaver is for the man who settles for nothing less than the best. It's 100% waterproof, provides the closest possible shave and will even clean and lubricate itself in the charging station after every use.

This is an ideal shaver for anyone who suffers from sensitive skin or is making the change from a manual razor to an electric. I have sensitive skin and would highly recommend this to anyone similar.

It's also rechargeable so it's great for use on the move. Some can be used both cordless or from the mains - giving you an extra option if you've run out of charge.

Remington Virtually Indestructible Hair Clipper HC5880

Remington's most powerful clippers with Japanese stainless steel blades deliver a professional finish. This to me is one of my ultimate hair clippers and most powerful one I have ever used. Designed to last a lifetime, this compact Remington clipper delivers two times the cutting performance. The reason I'm suggesting this one, apart from the fact that it comes with so many accessories is a combination of a strong motor, the fact that you don't need to lubricate it, and how easy it is to use, because of the low vibration this particular motor puts out.

Let me know what your thoughts are and if you've used any of the following above.
