Best electric shaver for sensitive skin

How to pick up the best shaver for sensitive skin

For the one with sensitive skin, shaving could always be a problems, especially for the problem areas.  Their skin would become red and hot, some one would be worse, their face would broken.To avoid this, the most effective way is shaving together with lotions or gels when you take shower. The gel will lubricate your skin and the warm water will bring you better shaving experience. But at first, you need to have an electric shaver which support wet dry shaving.

Braun, Panasonic and Philips Norelco are the top 3 best electric shaver brands in the world. All of them can delivery amazing shaving performance and  high customer ratings. So we would suggest you pick up from them.

Braun and Panasonic are foil shavers, Philips Norelco is rotary shaver.  They work in different way, but delivery the same results. So we don’t suggest you pay too much attention on difference between them.

To pick up the best electric shaver for sensitive skin, some guy will pay a lot of money to buy an electric shaver. Yes the most expensive electric shaver  can promise ultimate shaving experience, but most of your money is wasted on features you don’t really need.

So our goal is to help you make the correct decision, don’t buy the shaver for your sensitive skin before you go through this review.

  • All of the shavers listed support wet&dry shaving, all of them worked perfectly together with lotion or gel.
  • All of the shavers listed are electric shavers. Don’t use traditional razor if you have sensitive skin.
  • Most of them are not the best model in their series. Because another meaning of best is most expensive.
  • Most of them are set up with clean&renew system, this is from hygiene concern, especially for the one with skin disease.
  • We have higher model and medium model to recommend, you can pick up based on your budget.
  • The one with thick beard we recommend you pick up more expensive models to gain higher performance.

 Philips Norelco S9311/84, Shaver 9300

philips norelco series 9000 shaver 9300

Norelco shaver 9300 is our top recommendation. Norelco 9300 is the basic model of Norelco series 9000, who is the most advanced series of Philips norelco. Because Philips norelco is the best rotary shaver brand, so we can claim Norelco 9300 is one of the best electric shavers in the world.

From our full review on Philips norelco series 9000. We can see there are 3 models on Norelco series 9000.

Shaver 9300 is the cheapest, Shaver 9400 is medium, Shaver 9700 is the most expensive.

Shaver 9400 has a extra  beard & stuble trimmer compared with Shaver 9300. About extra $40(price change frequently) for this feature.

Shaver 9700 has a more advanced UI display on battery status, charge status, hygiene status and so on.  About $100(price change frequently) for this feature.

So from price concern, we believe Shaver 9300 is the best electric shaver for your sensitive skin.

For the best of the best shavers, no matter which brand you choose, Philip Norelco, Braun or Panasonic, there are tiny differences on functions. All of them have the expensive functions like wet&dry, auto clean system, lithium-ion battery, contour detect technology, beard density detect technology. They may have their own shaving and clean technology, but not too much differences on results.

So if you want to buy the best of the best electric shavers, your first concern should NOT be the functions or features, but your behaviors, you can trust you first eye feelings.

Then another important factor is the price, Norelco shaver 9300 is the best shaver you can buy within $200.


  • You can never find an electric shaver within $200 better than Norelco shaver 9300
  • Very quiet, won’t bother your family when shave in the morning
  • Delivery very close shave, perform perfect even deal with sensitive skin and problem areas
  • Good design, easy to handle and won’t slip off

  • The shell is not as solid as Braun series 9

Braun Series 9 9093s

Braun series 9 9093s

Braun series 9 is the most advanced series of Braun shaver. And also, the most expensive shavers in the world. Even more expensive than Philips norelco series 9000 and Panasonic arc 5 series (we’ll mention next, which is the best series of Panasonic). And also the electric shaver I like mostly.

There are 3 models on Braun series 9. Braun 9095CC is the highest, Braun 9090CC and Braun 9093S are medium.

Only Braun 9095CC and Braun 9093S support wet&dry shaving.

Only Braun 9095CC and Braun 9090CC have auto clean&charge system.

Because we need a wet&dry shaver here for sensitive skin,  we can only choose between 9095CC and 9093S. The price gap between them are about $60- $80 (price change frequently).

Want to know more features on Braun series 9? You can reference our another Braun series 9 review.

Want to compare between Braun 9093S with Norelco shaver 9300? You can reference my another review on most expensive electric shavers in the world.

So from price concern, I would recommend Braun 9093S, through I love Braun 9095CC also.  But I have to rank Braun 9093S after Philips Norelco shaver 9300, it’s more expensive, and lack of auto clean.


  • Braun series 9 is the most advanced model of Braun shaver.
  • Have the best quality, every Braun shaver can last as long as 7 years.
  • Perform best at handle details, like flat-lying hairs, sensitive skin and problems areas around neck and chin.
  • Support wet & dry, Which is a big plus compared with Braun 9090CC.

  • Price is higher than Norelco 9300
  • Don’g have auto clean&charge system.

Panasonic Arc5 ES-LV81-K

Panasonic arc 5 Es-LV81-K


Panasonic Arc 5 is the only 5 blades foil shaver in the world, even better than Braun series 9 we mentioned before, at least from speed side, without doubt , Panasonic Arc 5 is the fastest electric shavers.

Panasonic Arc 5 have 4 models. ES-LV95-S is the best of them, also the most expensive.  The model we recommend ES-LV81-K is the second best. And there are another two basic models ES-LV65-S and ES-LV61-K.

LV 95 and LV 65 share the same appearance and internal design, but LV 65 doesn’t have auto clean system, which we should would be helpful for your healthy. But you need to pay about extra $80(price change frequently) for this enhancement.

Besides LV 95, Panasonic LV 81 do have auto clean&charge system as well. And the price is more reasonable, that’s why this model is in our recommend list.

Panasonic LV 61 is the cheapest model of Arc 5 series.  You can get it less than $200. Sounds good? If just for shaving, enjoy the fast shaving experience, we would surely recommend it for money concern. But our top is to get the best shaver for sensitive skin, I don’t think it’s the best choice.

We already have full review on Panasonic arc 5 shavers. You can reference Panasonic ES-LV95-S review and  Panasonic ES-LV81-K review to know more details.


  • Panasonic Arc 5 is the fastest electric shaver in the world.
  • Panasonic Arc 5 is the most advanced model of Panasonic shavers.
  • Panasonic Arc 5 ES-LV81-K is has auto clean and charge system, with a acceptable price.
  • Of course, support wet&dry, actually all models of Panasonic Arc 5 shavers support wet& dry shaving, even the cheapest model, which is good news for sensitive skin guys.

  • Some one complain the shaver head is a little big, but this is just personal behavior
  • Price is higher than Norelco 9300

Braun CoolTec Men’s Solo Shaver

Braun CoolTec shaver, cooling technology minimize skin irritation

If you think the shavers we listed before is out your budget, then you can consider Braun cooltec.

This is not a very powerful shaver, the shaving performance is between Braun series 3 and Braun series 5. So if you have thick beard but sensitive skin, we don’t recommend you.

Braun cooltec is designed bring you cool feeling when shaving, when you click the button with ice icon when shaving, you won’t feel any hot but instead with cool experience. And Braun cooltec is the only shaver  with this design so far.

For most people, they don’t need this feature, they would prefer invest money on more amazing features like auto clean system. Braun cooltec doesn’t have auto clean technology.

Most of Braun’s shavers don’t support wet&dry shaving,  even the very expensive model like Braun 9090CC we mentioned before. But Braun cooltec is exception. This shaver is designed for sensitive skin people, so feel free to use it together with lotions and gels.

You can reference Braun cooltec review to know more details.


  • World’s only shaver with cooling shaving technology.
  • Price is very cheap, one of the best shaver for sensitive skin within $100.
  • Support wet& dry, good to go with lotion and gel.

  • Performance is not as good as other more advanced models.

Philips Norelco Shaver 7300

Norelco  7300 for sensitive skin

From my side, this is the “weakening” edition of Norelco 9300, the have the similar appearance, similar functions but different color. The price gap is not too much as well.

The shaving performance of this model is the same level as Braun series 7 and Panasonic Arc 4.

Generally speaking, Panasonic is the fastest, Braun has the best quality, Phlips norelco has the best shaving experience, it’s more quiet and comfortable. Especially on sensitive skin and problem areas.

Same as other models in our list, Norelco 7300 support wet&dry shaving.

Same as Norelco 9300, Norelco 7300 has smart clean system as well. Which is good from hygiene concern.


  • Norelco official site claim is as #1 best shaver for sensitive skin
  • Cheap than Norelco 9300 with similar functions
  • Beautiful design on appearance and color
  • Support wet dry shaving, has smart clean system
  • Reasonable price
