What's the difference between an electric razor and a disposable one?

ANSWER

Electric razors are convenient. But many models don't shave as closely as disposable razors. If you want to go with an electric razor, select one that will contour to your skin. Some razors are specifically designed for teenage girls. Even though you are using an electric razor, it can still irritate the skin. Take the time to find one that's right for you.

A disposable razor or safety razor can have several blades stacked one on top of the other. It can provide you with a very close shave.
