We’ll put it bluntly: You need to do something about
your face. Specifically, the brambly, wiry chin-shrub growing out of your jaw. It might have been okay during those weird, in-between times that life presents us with, like, say, college, or the entirety of the first wave of COVID lockdowns in 2020. You know, back when you could briefly forget about things like hygiene and wearing hard pants. But the world is back to smooth sailing, and even if you are in college, you need to look like you belong in a world where three meals a day is the norm, and you don’t even know what it’s like to get less than eight hours of sleep per night.
For the record, we’re not against beards. In fact, we are very pro-beard. But with a great beard comes great responsibility (maintenance, shaping, cleaning) and if you’re not ready to shoulder the weight of the beard life, it’s time to shave it off. But let’s get real: shaving sucks. It takes time, accoutrements, and the risk of blood. If that doesn’t sound like fun to you, but you’re itching to get rid of your neck beard (please), allow us to introduce you to the world of electric shavers.
Electric shavers get the job done without the need for stuff like shaving cream and bandaids. Most can be used on dry skin and deliver a close shave in a fraction of the time (perfect for even the laziest among us). And an electric shaver is a godsend if you struggle with ingrown hairs—they cut close, but not so close that hairs easily get caught in skin. These days, electric shavers can even do more than just shave your face—some can go literally anywhere you have hair. So, what are you waiting for? Cop one of these picks and tell that unruly beard its days are numbered. We’ve gathered 15 of the best electric shavers that have the precision, comfort, grip, and blades you’ll want to put your best face forward. Literally.
