I can't believe it, but my son will be 13 in two weeks and we are planning on getting him an electric razor. He has developed quite a moustache and desperately needs to shave! :scared1: We promised him that he could begin on his 13 birthday.

I'm nervous about him using a regular razor...we really don't want to go through the drama of a cut lip. Does anyone have any electric razor recommendations? We're not looking to spend a lot of money, but we don't want a cheap one that may not do the job well.

Thanks! :goodvibes

I don't really have any recommendations, but I do know that using an electric razor gets some getting used to because it pulls the hair to get a closer shave (I could be wrong but that's what I've been told by the men I know that use one). I had to comment though because my son had the cut lip trauma when we were at Disney this past October. He has refused to shave since :lmao:

DH has a Norelco. It is the rotary kind. The standard model is about 40 dollars at Amazon. That is what he started with when he was young.

Thanks for the lead. I hadn't thought of looking on Amazon. I remember seeing them at Bed, Bath and Beyond over the holidays and thinking that they were expensive. I don't remember the brand (also they might have been re-chargeable) but they were around $150 or maybe more.

That sort of thing is usually more expensive at a "non-traditional" retailer such as BB&B.

If you're shopping for a Norelco, Amazon.com, Target, and Walmart are good places to start.

My DS prefers to shave with a regular 4 blade razor. He had an expensive Braun electric razor, but said it irritated his skin. He has very sensitive skin though.

DH has one similar to this, and likes it very well. http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-ES8103S-Pro-Curve-Rechargeable-Shaving/dp/B001DNE3KQ/ref=zg_bs_3778611_14

I recommend buying at Amazon, and read the reviews.
