Anyone have any ideas? Under $50 dollars if possible.


Nearly ANY razor will work if you use it regularly, but during our recent "lockdown" I grew a beard for about 3 months.

When I got to hating it enough, I decided to shave it off.

My nearly-every-day razor is one of the 3 rotary head jobs and would do NOTHING towards getting rid of inch long hairs.

I bought THIS from Amazon. It is the one that is seen on TV for $29.95.

It is WONDERFUL!!! It takes off the growth down to about a 1-2 days length where my 3-head makes short work of it.

It USB charges fast and I have used it 3-4 times and have not recharged it yet.

Let it grow while you are gone and use THIS to take it off when you get back. I HIGHLY recommend it.

Amazon.com also has a bunch of Electric Razors in the $25 range.

I looked at those just a few days ago. Yep, if a person wants to just take it down to short stubble (5:00 shadow) those Micro Touch Solos look like the way to go.

If you want to shave every day and keep the face smooth, the one I've had and been using for about a dozen years is the Panasonic ES4815P-S twin foil shaver. It runs on 2 AA cells (I recommend a pair of L91 "Energizer Advanced Lithium" because they store well, maintain good voltage, and rarely leak). About $37 on Amazon.
Panasonic It isn't as good as my Braun with series 5 cutter/foil (on a series 8 shaver, lol) and will tend to miss a few hairs around the back of my jaw, but then I don't think any such travel shaver will be as good as a regular one.

I have always used the rotary type vs the back and forth models. I think they are easier on ones delicate skin.

Sometimes I work out of my camper and have to be clean shaven and presentable. Many years ago I bought a battery operated Braun that runs on 2 AA batteries and it's still going strong. They no longer make that model but it's similar to this Braun..

I picked up one of those little blue Brauns for $10 in the clearance section at Walgreens several years ago. I've had a few "regular" Brauns over the past 30 years or so (currently a Series 7 or 8--got it at Costco last year) and the little blue one is the best shaving one of all.

I haven't shaved with a blade in 50 years at least. My recommendation would be anything Braun. Pick your model. They are all good and just the features are different. I have a $35.00 blue one that I keep in my briefcase just in case and a full featured model for every day use that is ten years old and keeps on going.

Speaking of Braun, I'm assuming y'all all know that you can refill the cartridges yourself, instead of buying a new one every month.
