Foil vs. Rotary Shaver... Which one is best for you? While both offer an unparalleled smooth and clean shave, they use different technologies, so your type of hair and morning routine might mean you are using the wrong shaver. We'll give you a quick run down of how they work, and which would be the perfect match for you.
With a thin layer of metal that covers the blades, foil shavers are designed to make shaving more gentle for guys who have sensitive skin. The foils capture shorter hairs whilst the intercept trimmers comb and trim longer, low lying hairs, offering a closer shave compared to rotary. A foil shaver also can be more practical in delivering a more precise finish when defining straight edges, such as trimming around sideburns. Those who would benefit from a foil shaver are guys who:
- Shave every day
- Have fine hair
- Have straight hair growth
- Are looking for more precision
- Have sensitive skin
