Your ultimate guide to find the best Norelco shavers

Philips Norelco shavers are some of the best, least expensive, decent, close shavers on the market. There are quite a lot of different models, but one noticeable thing is that they are all rotary shavers, and shave in a circular motion. While rotary shavers tend to get a closer cut, this could cause irritation if you are just beginning to use them (after a while though your skin would adjust to the rotation of the blades and the irritation would end).

For people with sensitive skin, it is advisable to begin with the wet Norelco shaving models as the application of shaving cream before usage of the shavers will not only soften the beard, but also lift up flat-lying hairs so they are easily cut, thereby avoiding much friction with the skin.  This article features some of the best Philips Norelco shavers which are well worth the money and have received very high ratings from users the world over.
