When it comes to shaving, I don’t compromise. Everything has to be perfect for me. I want the best wet dry electric shaver razors (because I prefer to shave wet), top of the line shavers and cleaning equipment at the start of the day.
The wet / dry and waterproof electric shaver sounds like it’s the same razor. There are subtle things that are different between the two types of razors. Both will make your morning routine faster. They have great features like cleaning stations and featured accessories included.
I am sure most of my readers want the same. But you hardly have time to browse numerous brands in search of the perfect product. You’ll find yourself in a bind that distinguishes between “waterproof” and “wet” razors. Yes, no matter how similar they sound, the two types are NOT the same.
In this little guide (pun), I’ll tell you about my options for the ideal machine. I will document my experience in brief reviews to help you choose for yourselves.
You’ll find a detailed buying guide and tips on using razors at the end. Without further ado, let’s embark on this journey together!
