Question: I am a woman. Can I use a men’s electric shaver to shave my legs?

Answer: Most men’s electric shavers can be used by women to shave their legs and pubic areas. I had the Braun series 7 790 and my girlfriend was able to use it to shave her legs, armpit and private part without any skin burns or razor bumps. She always had smooth skin afterwards. Of course the manufacturers want more money so they have specialty shavers for women but if your husband has an electric shaver, use it for a couple of weeks and see how it goes. Some electric shavers require a breaking in period so you need a couple of weeks before deciding if a shaver is right for you or not.

So to answer your question, yes you can use a men’s electric shaver to shave your legs.



Question: I have very sensitive skin and had been using a sub $70 Norelco shaver for a while now. I always get skin irritation from shaving with that shaver. I am thinking of getting a new shaver to replace this one. Can you recommend any good electric shavers for really sensitive skin?

Answer: Thank you for this question. Many people are in the same boat as you and choose to go for a cheap electric shaver. From my experience, cheap electric shavers just won’t give you the best shaving experience. It is not uncommon to experience hair pulling and skin pulling when using these cheap shavers, resulting in skin irritation. The problem becomes very pronounced in those with sensitive skin.

Luckily manufacturers have worked really hard to make shaving very comfortable when you use modern shavers. As far as recommendations go, there are a few shavers we can recommend for those with really sensitive skin.

Braun Series 7-790 cc: Mild skin irritation in the beginning but zero skin irritation after using it for about a week.
Braun Series 9: This is an excellent shaver for those with really sensitive skin. Zero skin irritation thanks to it’s comfort features.
Panasonic Arc 5: This is also another excellent shaver for those with really sensitive skin. It comes with comfort rollers, which reduces the chances of skin irritation to zero.

Other really good electric shavers for those with sensitive skin are:
Panasonic Arc 3
Philips Norelco 9300
Philips Norelco 5700
