Every few days I have to get reacquainted with my trusty electric shavers for women. Call it a love/hate relationship if you will. There are times I would much rather have lived in the stone age where it didn’t matter if I had a forest growing under my arms and what looked like barbed wire sticking out all over my legs.
We can actually blame it all on fashion. Believe it or not, there would probably have been no need to be concerned about hairy pits if dresses didn’t start to feature sleeveless styles in the 1910s. That was the time when the shaving razor was not just for the man of the house and if a lady wanted to be seen outside of the house in the latest fashions, a trim of underarm hair was required.
Thanks to popular culture and the start of the revolution built around the publication of fashion magazines, the fact that it was natural to grow body hair got lost somewhere in the 1920s when dress lengths started to drift slowly above the ankles. It was a daring and bold charge into a brave new world. Women were starting to get noticed for things other than being pretty good in the kitchen and bedroom. They were starting to get noticed for being, well, pretty.
By Using Electric Shavers Women Could Bare All
Thanks again to fashion designers, who all must have been men at the time, more and more leg was showing with each new wave of designs. Women only needed to shave to just below their knees until someone (very likely a guy) invented sheerer stockings and dresses turned into skirts and thighs started to feel the magic of electric shavers.
As for shaving those private areas normally hidden within panties, I’d love to blame two or three bikini manufacturers for that stroke of marketing genius, but I can’t.
I’m betting average electric shavers will be worth their weight in gold in those days. Thanks to modern science, electric shavers manufacturer’s have continued to push the popular belief that a shaved girl is a clean girl by designing and promoting some pretty amazing looking electric shavers for women utilizing different angles, multiple blades, lotion strips, pretty colors and cute names to keep it fashionable to keep skin bare and smooth in order to make the transition from office pantsuit to evening party dress just a bit easier.
The Uses for Electric Shavers You hadn’t Thought Of…
The diverse selection of razors and shavers has allowed whole new generations of women tackle various locations for hair removal. In addition to the traditional choices of armpits and legs for daily shaving, some of us trim unwanted facial hair, there are some of us with hair on our tummies, even on our chests.
When it comes to the choice between hand razor and electric shavers, a lot of it comes down to personal taste. When looking at the options in a practical way, electric shavers probably win the contest as they can be used wet or dry, where a safety razor is only effective as a wet shave implement.
Imagine tearing out the hair under your arms to get a sense of a dry shave with a hand safety razor. However, I have always found I can get a much closer shave, which means smoother skin, with the wet shave of a hand razor balancing on one leg in the shower with shampoo dripping in my eyes. Hey, it’s what I do to look my best in that short skirt I like to wear:)
Ladies, if I’ve piqued your interest, fasten your seat belts and get ready for a heck of a ride as we explore the world of the electric shavers and review them for us women!
1). Panasonic Close Curves Wet/Dry Shaver for Intimate Areas
I am so in love with this electric shaver, the
Panasonic Close Curves Wet or Dry Shaver for Ladies! It has four floating, pivoting heads that are designed to give you as close a shave as humanly possible. It has a pop up trimmer and I’ll tell you, since it is 100-percent waterproof there’s no need to fear using it in the shower when you’re running late for that important business meeting or incredibly hot date!
As an electric shaver, it scores high marks for being constructed with nickel-free, hypo-allergenic blades and foils. The added bikini attachment is a nice touch. When Panasonic named this electric shaver ‘close curves’ they had a slick marketing plan in mind and to be honest with you, it worked on me. Anything meant to make the chore of using a shaving razor easy catches my attention instantly.
The best thing about this electric razor for women is that it holds a charge well and takes 12-hours on the charger for 20-minutes shaving time.
The pink colour allows me to put it anywhere in my bathroom as it looks as if it was meant to be there. For those of us girls who are a bit on the geeky side, the two-year parts and labor warranty should keep us happy and make purchasing Panasonic’s ES2216PC electric shaver for women, something for the to do list before summer fashions start coming out of the closet.
Benefits of the Panasonic Close Curves Razor for Intimate Areas:
- Pink n sexy, this Panasonic “Close Curves” Ladies Razor is 100% waterproof for a wet or dry shaving experience you’ll never forget…in the shower or bathtub
- 4-Floating pivoting head feels amazing as it delivers a close shave with less skin irritation
- The Pop-up Trimmer removes those unsightly stray and longer hairs in a “whisker”
- Blades and foils are nickel-free and hypo-Allergenic
- For a bit of pubic landscaping, there is a bikini attachment included
2). Smooth & Silky Remington Rechargeable Women’s Electric Shavers
When I hear the word Remington the last thing I think about is an electric razor. When I hear that name I typically think of manly things like rifles and guns, but Remington does a pretty good job in the electric razor for women department.
In fact, the Remington WDF-7000 electric razor is one of the multi-purpose, “super” electric shavers in my eyes. Here’s my proof: it’s as good when used dry as it is when wet, so shaving armpits while shampooing hair in the shower is possible. The shaving razor does a lot more than mow through stubble, as it has a built-in cleaning cycle that self cleans it after each use.
There’s also lights on the razor that indicate when it’s time to charge, whether or not it needs a run through the cleaning cycle or, if by chance you need to add more of the magical cleaning solution to it.
The thing I like the best about the Remington WDF-7000 is that it has gold foils that touch the skin during the shaving process. While I’ve never disliked the feel of gold on my silky smooth skin, the gold foils do a great job of preventing skin irritation. Because it has a great design, you can hold it and get to all those areas you want to shave that may take some extra balance and insurance when using just a hand razor. I do like this electric shaver for women very much. Once you try it, you will too.
Benefits of the Remington Electric Shaver:
- A girls gotta love an electric shaver that cleans itself hygienically: Cleaning solution and filter work together to clean shaver after every use
- Automatically charges in the base
- Blades are lubricated as it cleans so the shaver runs like new each time
- Indicator lights tell you when the system is cleaning, charging, or needs new solution
- Wet or Dry to use in or out of the shower
3). Remington Women’s Smooth and Silky Foil Shaver
Ifelectric shavers for women could ever be called yummy, this is it. Remington says it was ‘titanium technology’ that assisted with the design of this tool. I’m more inclined to think that Mrs. Remington got involved and suggested the boys in research and development ask a woman for some input. What resulted was an incredible blend of practical and sensible. This electric shaver has the trademarked Body Contour SafeScreen which I will tell you hug my curves tighter than any spandex I’ve ever slipped into.
If you are in need of a quick, incredibly close and unbelievably comfortable shave, the WDF4840 delivers. This electric shaver for women is not only rechargeable, but it has a (also trademarked) SmoothCut system that allows for a close shave in either direction.
I also love that I can start shaving in the shower and if the phone rings, as normally is the case when I’m in the shower, I can hop out, wrap myself in a towel and spend the next twenty minutes chatting while shaving my legs.
There’s nothing I hate more than having to go over an area more than once because I’m in a hurry and I’m depending on my trusty little electric razor for women to save the day (or night). Aside from being a bit louder than other electric shavers I’ve come in contact with, the contour design which also makes it easy to hold when in use, more than makes up for that.
Benefits of the RemingtonWDF4840:
- 82% of customers, me included, have shared 4 star plus positive reviews on Amazon
- Titanium Technology plus being Americas No 1 brand made me fall in love with this funky little women’s electric razor
- Body Contour SafescreensTM hugs your every curvy part for a smooth and close, comfortable results
- SmoothCutTM trimmers let you to shave unruly hair in both directions
- Looking to shave on the run in and out of the shower like me? This one gives you that option
4). Panasonic Arc3 Electric Shaver Wet/Dry w/ Nanotech Blades
It had to happen. Panasonic created men’s electric shavers that are so high-tech, that even a girl like me has to get my hands on it to give it a whirl. While it is not specifically an electric razor for women, it’s pretty awesome regardless of whose skin it touches.
The key feature Panasonic ES8103S Arc3 Electric Shaver is the beautifully polished, mini arced Nanotech blades that puts smoothness into a different category.
The pivoting head is adjustable to give you the right angle for wherever you plan on using this shaving razor. It comes complete with a water-infused solution that washes out stubble and debris which helps keep the blades sharp and there’s a lubrication system that baffles me and excites me at the same time.
Aside from that, here’s a bit of trivia for you about this tool that is not really an electric shaver for women: The linear motor contained in the Panasonic ES8109S runs at the fastest speed in the electric shaver industry at a staggering 13-thousand RPM. Just imagine how effective and powerful, that could do if it was inside an electric razor for women…. Maybe that’s why many women buy one of these as a gift for their man – so they can get to use it too!
Benefits of the Panasonic Arc3 Electric Shaver:
- How about gold star product with a whopping 3200 reviews, with 82% declaring this is the top quality Rolls Royce of electric shavers. 2163 reviewers gave the Panasonic a 5 star rating.
- Super sharp nanotech blades with an arced foil give me the smoothest sexist shave to put me in that mood…
- Awesome adjustable and pivoting head caresses my curves for the ultimate shaving experience
- Power anyone? A 13,000 RPM motor gives you a stream of power for the smoothest shave

- Pop-up trimmer for detailed grooming to keep you looking your best if you happen to be in the mood…
- Turbo cleaning accelerates shaver to 17,000 RPM to shake of hair residue that might stick to your blade
5). Remington Women’s Travel Foil Electric Shavers
Okay, I have to confess. When I’m not living out of a suitcase somewhere at a seminar or conference that my company sent me to because it’s part of my job, I like to use my travel electric shavers for women at home. My choice are the Remington Women’s Travel Foil Electric Shavers which feature dual trimmers that can make quick work of an armpit trim, or, as I prefer using it for touching up my bikini line.
Since it’s actually intended as a travel electric shaver, it operates on batteries (a pair of AA) and they will last quite some time. I like to load it with new batteries before a road trip and I don’t replace them until it’s time for another out of town event
As an electric razor for women it is strong enough to put up with daily use as well. I also have to say I’m quite fond of the smaller size of this travel shaver as it’s easy to pack and carry and believe me, when the boss sends me to some of these places, anything I can do to make the trip a bit more enjoyable, I’ll do it.
That means packing the little black dress and some heels in case a party breaks out after a day stuck in an office. With my Remington WSF4810DC I’m seconds away from smooth and silky which makes this much more than just an electric razor for women to me. It is my road trip lifesaver.
Benefits of the Remington Travel Shaver:
- I love a sharp set of dual trimmers for a quick and smooth shave, especially to get rid of any stray bikini line hairs or missed hairs
- This is my little “go to” razor when I travel…and at a great low price
- The angled head for a faster shave
- Battery operated
6). Conair Satiny Smooth Rechargeable Electric Shavers For Women
I’ll be honest with you. I did not see it coming. The Conair Satiny Smooth electric shavers for women have two completely independent floating cutters and foils and one can pop up to be used to trim the bikini line. I just about passed out the first time I used mine for that. Okay, it spooked me when it ‘accidentally’ popped up. It scared me at first then when I regained my senses I realized it was an awesome design feature.
Since both of the trimmers are full size, they can give a girl the closest shave possible wherever she wants to use it. The Satiny Smooth electric shaver for women is also designed for use in wet or dry environments. I’m forever running close to late so I’m using any of my women’s shavers in the shower. Or at least that’s where I usually start shaving my legs.The folks at Conair also designed this razor to be easy to clean and to add an extra bonus, they included a cleaning brush as part of the packaging with this product.
There’s a charging stand and light that indicates that it is in the charging cycle. The charging stand is built pretty solid and sturdy and comes with a rubber base so it won’t slide or tip over with a sudden nudge.
Aside from the nifty pop up bikini line trimmer option, I like the close shave that I can get from the Satiny Smooth electric shavers for women. The name pretty much tells you what to expect really.
Benefits of the Conair Satiny Smooth:
- 2 Independent floating cutters and foils for the closest possible shave in your intimate areas
- Works for both wet or dry skin areas
- 2 Full size trimmers: one pops up for neat and smooth bikini trimming
- Rechargeable and includes a charging stand with charge indicator light
