Electric shavers: foil or rotary?

Which one works better, foil or rotary? I'm looking to get a decent electric shaver.

Razor fags fuck off, I don't care about how much you prefer a razor.

          Yes. You have never used one before, while I've used dozens of those meme safety razors so shut the fuck up lmao

          Using a razor is fast and easy too you retarded child. Unironically if it takes you longer than 45 second to shave when in a hurry you're a low t queer who doesn't know how to shave.

        I have tried cheap ones and $600 Brauns, though I’ve never tried rotary ones and I can say this is bullshit.
        Maybe if your hair is thin and grows slowly you can run these over your face each day for 5 minutes to be clean shaven but any man worth a damn will have facial hair too rough for these cash grabs

        it's somewhere in-between a wet shave with the grain and one against the grain. The point being you can do almost any time even multiple times a day if needed. With a wet shaving you open the pores more and get more of the hair but you also give the skin more abrasion and potentially open your skin up to irritation and redness if it's not perfectly sterile and the long process of trouble shooting shaving creams, after shave/post shave balm to find the one thing that's causing the redness. Apart from just being more time consuming you have to carefully meter how many times you shave a week to not cause redness.

        Where it makes the most difference appearance wise is for men with more transparent skin or constantly visible beard/moustache shadow. Since they require more frequent shaving but likely can't get the desired effect with shaving with the grain only and probably don't have the skin resilience to close shave every day.

      Shaver shills explain how exactly this works.
      One of the reasons I use a razor is because I can get a baby smooth close shave. I buy 6 blade razors from dollar tree so it's not expensive either.
      What are the benefits to using these products?
      I don't like dry shaving because from my understanding it basically just chews your stubble off like a weed wacker.

          It's just that it's not as clean a cut. Part of shaving is the feeling and texture of my face as a result. Few things compare in feeling to a close shave. That said I'm willing to try new things if there's some benefits I'm unaware of.

        it's kind of shit. Wet shaving requires too much prep and after care to be practical. It's little more than a faggy ritual at this point. Electric chads just shave in the car on the way to work don't even need a mirror or a towel. Have a date tonight and have 5 o'clock just shave again, no problem.

          I've done it both ways I wet shaved until I was in my 30's even going so far as to buy a feather blades, a stropping belt and compound, have a guided sharpening set for sharpening my own straight razors (which I still use for kitchen knifes). But nothing beats the practicality of an electric when you have a life, kids, places to be. Wet shaving is for dandies and hipsters (same thing I know).

    Foil if your hair has a mostly consistent grain, rotary if you have a more chaotic grain. You kind of use them the same way small circular movements moving gradually against the grain.

    I just switch from rotary to foil, if you have an older model (+10 years) it might be a good idea to get a new one that will only need to be charged once a week or so.

        You have to buy a cartridge every 3-9 months depending on how hard your local water is. Even the Remington clone is going to suffer from that.
        Its popular because its a very fast dry shave, but also the kind of dry shave that barely leave skin irritation. Its also a very fast wet shaver, and a amazing wet shaver if you live somewhere with completely soft water.

        this really a new set of blades for my foil is shaver is $60 every other year for almost daily use.

        for phillips "each replacement blade lasts up to 4 months (for best shaving experience. Based on 2 full shaves on face per week.)" so somewhere around 30 shaves for $12. Which would add up to be around $280 for the same timeframe. For that you could have gotten a top of the line electric and replacement blades.

    Its a fast shaver anon, not a closer shaver.
    Its popular because a significant portion of the population have too soft stubble and too hard skin for a closer shave to leave no pimples or ingrown.
    And it has a better wear cycle than the rollers and rotating heads.

    If I want to do body hair, then a cheap 3 blade razor in the shower is the ideal.

    That thing on the right kinda scares me. I feel like it's gonna cut my skin if I used it. I don't even grow a lot of facial hair so I can stick to a razor. But if you grow a full beard and you want it shaved, I guess maybe the electric one could be more of a convenience? I think they're perfect for someone with a disability who has trouble guiding a razor safely across their face. Ultimately I think they are a dumb gimmick for the average man.

    I can't use a razor without getting inflamed skin, so I never bother with a close shave. Had an old Phillips electric shaver, but decided to upgrade recently since even that irritates the area under the chin. Talked to a friend who works as a hairdresser in an expensive salon and uses trimmers and clippers daily. She told me that if I want a good quality beard trimmer, cheap brands like Phillips aren't great since they have shit blades that get dull easily.
    So she recommended to browse stuff that Moser makes, and I eventually got picralated on sale. It's bretty good.
