6 Best Reviewed Electric Razors on Amazon to Keep You Looking Sharp

Don't get (razor) burned by a bad purchase.

As Flannery O’Connor once said in a short story, a good razor is hard to find. If you hate hand razors with a passion and enjoy the simplicity of dry, electric shavers, you might have noticed the market is flooded with hundreds of shavers, all purporting to be the BEST, the most POWERFUL, the most COMFORTABLE.

Of course, they can’t all be, so we went hunting for the actual best. The ones that will not actively ruin your life every time you try to smarten up a little. Here are the six electric razors people swear by.

6. Braun Proskin Series 3 Electric Razor

The Proskin is 100 percent waterproof, so you can take this guy in the shower for an even smoother, closer, more productive shave while you get ready in the morning. [Amazon, $49.97]

5. Panasonic Arc 4

An upscale model that means serious business. Look at this thing! Looks like something that would terrorize Neo in The Matrix. The Arc 4 promises “nanoblades” that can deliver up to 14,000 cuts per minute. Utterly terrifying language, but an impressive feat for a razor. [Amazon, $139.99]

4. Remington PG605 Beard Trimmer

Remington is known for its high-quality, affordable beard trimmers. If you’re not looking for anything fancy, this utilitarian trimmer will give you a neat, dry, comfortable shave without any fuss. [Amazon, $19.99]

3. Philips Norelco Multigroom 5000

No, the Multigroom isn’t a Mormon wedding format, it’s Philips answer to the mid-range beard trimmer. It comes with 18 different attachments to give you just about any kind of shave you could possibly desire. [Amazon, $29.95]

2. Philips Norelco Oneblade Trimmer and Shaver

A lot of people swear by the Oneblade and its utter ease of use, with reviews pouring in about how well it compares to shavers five times its price (or even more!) [Amazon, $34.95]

1. Gillette Fusion ProGlide Men’s Razor Styler 3-In-1

There’s a reason Gillette have been top of the men’s grooming foodchain for decades on end: their stuff works, and it works well. The ProGlide is engineered with Braun razors, and works as a body trimmer as well as for your face (just, dear God, please remember to wash between uses. For your own sake.) [Amazon, $19.99]

Joe Penhall has been keeping busy. In between researching and writing Mindhunter Season 2, he also had time to pen King of Thieves, a new movie out next week about a group of elderly British burglars. But we couldn’t resist asking about his hit Netflix show, and, in an interview, Penhall tells Inverse approximately when we can expect Mindhunter Season 2 to arrive along with his plans for Season 3 and beyond. (Listen to the interview in the video above, if you can stand the sound of my rapid note-taking throughout.)

You’re driving alone down a dirt road, and you’re falling asleep at the wheel. Suddenly, a burst of light streaks across the sky — there’s a floating, flat shape in the air right in front of your truck, and though it soared quickly into view, it seems to have stopped completely. A beam of light shoots out from underneath the craft, and a little man with huge eyes, an enormous head, and a tiny body appears in the middle of the road. He doesn’t want to hurt you; he just wants to stick a probe in your nasal cavity.

Ah, young love. The first time you fall for someone, it can be dangerously easy to overlook the warning signs. For the first few months, your boyfriend might seem like the funniest, most creative, most insightful, and handsomest guy you’ve ever met. It won’t matter that he roots for the Mets or says vague stuff like that he’s “not from around here.” After some time together, though, you’ll start to spot your boyfriend’s little quirks. Maybe he picks his nose while watching TV, or maybe his skin heals faster than it should. The truth is, a lot of teenage boys are dirtbags in disguise. Some of them, however, are hiding something much stranger. Some are aliens.

Could you ever date an incel? You know, the men on the internet who claim to be involuntarily celibate? I never considered that some women might answer ‘yes’ to that question, but that was before I saw #DateAnIncel, a self-proclaimed online matchmaking service says its purpose is to connect members of the “minority group” with “true love.”
