Philips Norelco Arcitec Shavers and Accessories There are several shavers available in the Philips Norelco Arcitec lineup. I will be discussion the Arcitec 1090 and the 1050 along with some available accessories and replacement heads. Other models have been either phased out or completely uneconomical to purchase. For example, the 1060x is currently available, but is being sold for $999, not exactly a great buy and definitely not worth that price. For that reason, I have chosen two of the … [Read more...]
Rotary Electric Shaver Reviews and Ratings
There's always been a big debate whether rotary or foil shavers are better. Honestly, it's more a personal preference than anything. If you're a rotary shaver kind of guy be sure to scroll down to check out my rotary shaver reviews.
Why a Rotary Shaver?
If you've never used a rotary shaver before, the main difference between rotary and foil is pretty simple. A rotary shaver generally has two or three spinning heads. A foil shaver has a single head with a foil as a protector for your skin. The foil has tiny holes which allow hair to get caught and cut by the spinning blades beneath.
That's the basic difference. On a personal note, I prefer rotary shavers when I haven't shaved in a while and my facial hair is quite long. Though when I just have a few days growth I tend to use a foil shaver. I feel that foil shavers give a closer cut but rotary are better at cutting longer hair. Again, this is a personal preference but I know a lot of guys tend to agree.
Which Rotary Shaver do you Recommend?
That's not a simple question to answer. Unfortunately, every guy has a different situation whether thats the length of hair, thickness, skin type, as well as budget. But if you're asking, one of the best in my opinion is the Philips Norelco 1290X.
This is a great shaver but is a bit pricey. For guys on a budget you may want to consider the Philips Norelco Click and Style. This is at the other end of the spectrum as far as price. But don't let the low price fool you, it was voted the best shaver in 2013 by numerous prestigious grooming and lifestyle blogs.
Bottom line is, I've compiled a great deal of research available at your disposal. Browse below to check out all the rotary shavers I've reviewed. If you can't find one that is just right feel free to contact me and I'll help you find the best rotary shaver at the best possible price.
