Back Shaver Reviews
Like most men who have back hair, we have tried every method, from nair, to shaving, to waxing, to having our girlfriends/wives help out, and for us, it’s been a long journey filled with unsuccessful, painful, or embarrassing options.
Today we now have many options for mess-free at home back hair removal in the form of back shavers and electric back shavers. This allows all of us to be able to remove our back hair, and other body hair, safely, cheaply, and without embarrassment or pain.
We decided to put together this website to help others in the same predicament, as we have spent countless hours researching and evaluating all types of back shavers, and other items useful in removing back hair.
Why a Back Shaver?
If you haven’t tried a back shaver, or perhaps you’ve rigged a back shaver with a pole, some duct tape, and a disposable razor like we’ve tried in the past, or you might have even seen a few of the shavers we’ve reviewed on this site, you might already know the answer, but for those that haven’t tried these methods, the answer is convenience. These new back shaver’s make it easy to remove back hair whenever you need to do so, in your own home, or on the road. The next time you have to go to the pool, have a hot date, know you will be shirtless, you can take out the shaver like you would for your face, and quickly remove your back hair. It’s that simple. No need for a gooey smelly mess, or going to the waxing salon for a painful experience, you can just shave in the shower with some models.
Choosing the Best Back Shaver
You have many choices with a back shaver, which is why we try to break it down for you. From electric, to blades, to ones you can add any razor, you will need to understand your options to find the best back shaver for you.
Like your face, back shavers follow a similar path. Electric shavers will need to be plugged in or charged, some will work in the shower while others will not, and of course they will make noise, which is fine for most as we also likely have an electric beard shaver. But the noise is something to be considered for those that might be embarrassed to be shaving their backs.
Blade shavers come in different sizes with different options. Some blade shavers come with their own blades, so you are going to be locked in to buying replacements from them, and hope they don’t go out of business, while others are designed as a longer stick like object with a spot to put any razor, which gives you more flexibility, but it’s possible the razors you have might not fit well. Since these are like the razors you use for your face you can always use them in the shower, and with back hair being much finer than facial hair (for most men) you can also dry shave your back. It’s hard to manually apply shaving cream or soap to your back, so there are applicators for sale as well.
With regards to price, electric back shavers are going to cost more, with some models reaching $100+, while the blade shavers will cost less, usually in the $30-$40 range.
Should you Buy a Back Shaver?
This is one of those questions you will need to answer for yourself, but for us, the cost and inconvenience of alternative methods, like waxing, creams, and having our wives/girlfriends help, made the choice very easy. We also never liked being in public with our shirts off and exposing our unsightly back hair. While many men seem to be fine with it, it just wasn’t for us. Once we found good quality back shavers were starting to become readily available we jumped on it. Unfortunately not all back shavers are built well, and some companies have gone out of business since they launched. Back shavers as a product category are relatively new, they’ve taken off as men, and women, have started to prefer being more hair free, so if you, or a person you know, wants to remove back hair, then back shavers are completely worth it, not only for how inexpensive they are, but for the ease and convenience of being able to remove the hair on ones back in ones own home.
