The Braun Series7 790cc, Philips Norelco SensoTouch 3D and Panasonic ES-LV61-A Arc5 are all consistently praised by reviewers for giving a close shave. All three have some type of feature that lifts flat-lying and ingrown hair for the closest shave possible.
The Braun Series7 790cc is one of the top-rating electric shavers available in recent years. It uses Braun's Active Lift technology, which targets hairs that are ingrown or flat against the skin, to give a close shave. It also has settings that can be personalized for sensitive skin, or for an intensive shave.
The Philips Norelco 1280X SensoTouch 3D is also a highly ranked electric shaver among reviewers. It doesn't tug at the hair or skin, and features shaving heads that move independently of one another, which covers more surface area. There is a dual-blade system on this razor that lifts flat-lying or ingrown hairs to give a complete, close shave. It can be used wet or dry.
The Panasonic ES-LV61-A Arc5 is another electric razor that receives consistently positive reviews. It cycles more per minute than the Braun Series7, which means that it shaves faster. This model also has five blades and an additional foil which uses vibration to lift hair, ensuring a close shave.
