The Philips OneBlade vs. Black Skin—Is It the Best Electric Shaver for Black Men?
There’s a pretty universal truth when it comes to Black men and grooming—we can’t shave our faces with just anything.
I mean, I learned to shave like most dudes—my Dad got me disposable razors in my early preteen years, showing me how to carefully drag the blade across my skin, pulling taut now and then to make sure I got everything in even the trickiest of spots.
But you know what happens when you cut tight curls with a cheap razor and let it grow back?
The Philips OneBlade vs. Razor Bumps—Just How Well Will it Fare?
The curse of Black men everywhere; it often feels like you can’t shave your face without avoiding razor bumps. I know gents who hit the barbershop weekly for a lineup and a shave, but not everyone has the luxury of time or the dollars to do that 52 times a year. In my case, I got a barber-grade Andis T-Outliner that’s been a dream to work with… but as a wired unit, what’re you supposed to do when an outlet isn’t handy?
If you ask Philips, they’ll give you an answer that just might be the cordless version of the best electric shaver for Black men—the Philips OneBlade!
