1/ Gillette Fusion Power Phenom

In a Pimp My Razor contest, this would take the crown. A battery-powered version of the Fusion, it boasts microchip technology for consistent power, a low-battery indicator, automatic shut-off to prevent embarrassing ‘buzzing sound’ incidents at airport security, and a fading lubricator strip to signal when the blade needs replacing.

2/ Braun Series 7 Shaver

If you’re investing in a new electric shaver, it’s worth stumping up for a top-of-the-range model. The Braun Series 7 boasts sonic technology and cross-cutting Gillette blades to lift and chop hairs more effectively; a lockable pivoting head; a pop-out trimmer for tight angles and a self-cleaning station using alcohol cartridges to nuke any bacterial scum lurking on the blades. Pow!

3/ Remington PG400 High Precision 7-in-1 Grooming Kit

There’s no grooming dilemma this kit can’t handle. There are five attachments to tame unruly brow, ear and nasal hair, plus trim and shape sideburns, the nape of the neck, facial hair and tramlines. The blades are coated with ‘nanosilver’, making them sharper for improved cutting performance and reduced skin irritation.

5/ Zeno Mini Zit Zapper

Anti-acne gels tend to be quite hardcore on the face, drying up the skin. And fingertip application can spread germ filth, making the problem worse. Step forward the Zeno Zit Zapper; a hand-held device that helps kill germinating spots with pin-pointed thermal rays to painlessly destroy the bad bacteria under the skin before it erupts (literally).
