In this guide I’m going to share my favorite shavers that I think are really worth buying with the current 2023 Cyber Monday discounts.
Some of these shavers already offered great value and you can now get them for even less money.
But there are also a few high-end models that while fantastic performers, their premium price tag prevented me from recommending them on a regular basis.
Fortunately, the Black Friday & Cyber Monday deals are live and you can now buy a flagship shaver for the price of a less advanced model.
So let’s cut right to the chase and check out some of the best discounted shavers.

The Best Cyber Monday electric shaver deals
1. Panasonic Arc 5 ES-LV65-S
This shaver from the older, second-generation Arc 5 was already a fantastic shaver for the money.
But you can now get it for an absolute bargain of a price.
So when should you buy this Panasonic over the Series 9/Series 9 Pro from Braun for example?
When you want the closest possible shave and you usually shave more often (daily up to every three days at most).
But also when you don’t want to pay a premium for a premium shaver. And this Panasonic really is one.
That said, the Braun Series 9 and Series 9 Pro can handle longer stubble with ease.
Panasonic shavers on the other hand work best on short facial hair as the long, flat-lying ones are more difficult for the foils to catch.
Depending on your needs, budget and shaving habits, you should pick the one that makes the most sense in your case.
The Arc 5 is a beast of a shaver and even shaves a bit closer than the Series 9 Pro.
On the other hand, it isn’t as good at capturing difficult, flat-lying hairs, so you would need to shave more often to make up for that shortcoming.
The Panasonic ES-LV65-S costs significantly less even with the Cyber Monday discount applied to the Series 9 Pro, so if you are on a tighter budget but still want a top-performing shaver, the Arc 5 ES-LV65-S is the one to get.
It’s one of the closest shaving electric razors regardless of price point.
The ES-LV65-S does not come with a cleaning station, but it’s dead easy to clean manually. Trust me, you really don’t need it for this shaver.
2. Panasonic Arc 5 ES-ALV6HR
Here’s another Panasonic Arc 5 model you should absolutely be checking out.
It’s a newer iteration of the ES-LV65-S above, essentially meaning that it comes with a more modern design.
But as far as shaving performance is concerned, it’s absolutely identical.
It even uses the same inner blades and foil head.
The ES-ALV6HR comes in a striking and unique candy apple red colorway.
I think it looks absolutely stunning, but if you want the same shaver in a more conservative color there’s also available in black (ES-LV67-K) and blue (ES-LV67-A).
The naming scheme isn’t the most consistent, but the ES-LV67-K, ES-LV67-A, and ESALV6HR are absolutely the same minus the color.
So why should you buy the ES-ALV6HR/ES-LV67-K over the ES-LV65-S?
Well, some users just like the way it looks. But in my opinion you should also buy it if it costs less or if you can’t get the ES-LV65-S anymore.
It’s a perfectly viable alternative or plan B.

3. Braun Series 9 Pro 9465cc
You can also check out the Braun Series 9 Pro 9460cc which is identical, only that it comes in Black instead of Noble metal grey.
The Pro version of the already excellent Series 9 is arguably the best shaver Braun has to offer.
While it’s not the latest Series 9 iteration anymore — the 2023 Braun Series 9 PRO+ being now the newest — the Pro is absolutely identical to the PRO+ performance-wise.
With a redesigned shaving head and a bit more power than the standard S9, the Pro is a highly capable and versatile foil shaver capable of shaving very close and with great comfort.
It works great on short and longer facial hair (up to 5 to 7 days of beard growth), it’s really smooth and gentle to the skin and overall a safe buy for most users.
However, since it usually costs more than the standard Series 9 which is already a great performer, the Series 9 Pro isn’t always my first pick.
But with the Cyber Monday discount, it costs significantly less than the retail price of the standard Series 9, making it a best-buy.
It comes with an excellent automatic cleaning station that also lubricates and dries the shaving head.
4. Braun Series 9 9370cc
You should not by any means overlook the standard Series 9 especially if you can get one for less money than the S9 Pro above.
The 9370cc is part of the latest revision of the non-Pro Series 9 and it’s one of the most comfortable and enjoyable electric shavers out there.
In fact, I’d say it’s even smoother than the Pro and a better choice for users with very sensitive skin.
The 92s cassette of the Series 9 is a bit more forgiving but equally capable in my experience at catching longer, flat-lying hairs.
The S9 Pro above does feel ever so slightly more powerful and torquey, but the differences are overall minor.
The Series 9 9370cc comes with the same excellent cleaning station and you can shave wet or dry.
It’s fast, shaves close, works great on short and long stubble (up to 5 days of growth) and is also an excellent choice for men with irritation-prone skin.

5. Panasonic Arc 6 ES-LS8A-K
The 6-blade Arc 6 is an almost outrageous shaver from Panasonic and arguably the most advanced foil shaver you can buy in 2023.
Basically an Arc 5 on steroids, but more refined and more comfortable, the Arc 6 is a fantastic performer.
But usually, all this comes with a matching price tag, the Arc 6 being a high-end product.
Normally, I would simply recommend getting an Arc 5 instead as that one is almost as good but costs a lot less.
Well, you can now get the Panasonic Arc 6 ES-LS8A-K for a more reasonable price. It’s still the most expensive shaver on this list though.
The Arc 6 shaves incredibly close (just like the Arc 5), but it does so while being really comfortable and forgiving.
I think no other shaver manages to do that so well. I find the standard Braun S9 still slightly more comfortable and better at catching longer stubble, but it doesn’t shave quite as close as the Arc 6.
So if you have the budget for it and want one of the closest shaving razors but also one that is perfectly smooth and gentle, this is it.

6. Braun Series 8 8457cc
I’ve always considered the Braun Series 8 a more budget-friendly Series 9.
All the main traits of the range-topping Series 9 are showcased by the Series 8 as well: very comfortable and close shaves and good performance even on longer stubble (3 to 4 days).
With its 3-blade shaving head instead of 4, it’s even easier to use, it feels nimbler and it’s a great option for both a beginner and a seasoned user.
The 8457cc is the Series 8 model to buy in my opinion.
It comes with the same cleaning station as the Series 9, so it has 3 cleaning modes and an active drying system.
And you can now buy it for even less money than before, so it’s a worthy alternative to the Series 9 if you want to save some money.
The replacement shaving head is also more reasonably priced, so the cost of ownership will be lower as well.

7. Philips Norelco S9000 Prestige SP9840/90
This is hands down Philips Norelco’s best current shaver. Yes, it’s better than the new Series 9000 9500/9800 as well.
While usually on the pricey side, you can now get a great deal on the Prestige.
Rotary shavers work great on longer, flat-lying hairs, definitely better than most foil shavers.
So if you have lots of flat-lying hairs and shave less often, this razor should be on your shortlist.
Also, if you already use a rotary and are looking for an upgrade, this one is it.
The SP9840/90 model in the 2023 Prestige line also comes with a Quick Clean Pod for easy cleaning and an extra set of replacement heads.
It’s an excellent deal for a Prestige variation that usually costs a premium.

8. Braun Series 3 ProSkin 3040s
This is arguably the best bang for your buck when it comes to electric shavers.
The Series 3 ProSkin from Braun is a very affordable, but still capable and versatile shaver that will get the job done without needing to spend big.
It’s a very comfortable foil shaver that’ll make a great first shaver for a beginner or a teenager.
But even an experienced user will enjoy it provided the expectations are reasonable.
It’s affordable to buy and to own since the replacement shaving head costs less than what you would pay for a Panasonic Arc 3 head, for example.
The Series 3 ProSkin 3040s has been one of the top-selling electric razors of the past years for good reason.
9. Philips Norelco Series 3000 Shaver 3800
And finally, we have what I think it’s the best mid-range rotary razor from Philips.
Yes, better than the Series 5000 or 7000. And you can now get it for even less!
If the Prestige above is outside your budget, definitely consider this one from the new Series 3000.
It shaves remarkably well for a rotary in this price range and it’s a really enjoyable and smooth razor.
The performance on longer facial hair is quite good, definitely better than any foil shaver that costs the same.
You’ll usually have to shell out for a Braun Series 9 in order to get a foil razor that can capture longer hairs with ease.
And while the Shaver 3800 doesn’t shave quite as close as the Prestige — after all, it costs only a fraction of the price — it’ll be good enough for most users.
Just like the Braun Series 3, the costs of ownership are really low with the Norelco Shaver 3800 as the replacement cutters are durable and reasonably priced.

10. Remington F8-5800
It’s generally pretty difficult for another shaver brand to challenge the big three.
However, Remington, one of the pioneers of the industry back in the day, offers a shaver that is a worthy alternative to a Braun, Panasonic or Philips.
Their F5-5800 is a best-selling shaver that’s been around for a long time.
What makes it so appealing is the very affordable price and the surprising closeness.
This shaver manages to shave as close as a much more expensive Panasonic Arc 3.
Moreover, it works both cordless and corded.
Granted, it doesn’t look or feel as premium as a Panasonic, but again given its price, it’s very respectable.
And you can now get it for even less with current sale prices, making it the most affordable option on this list.

11. Braun Series 7 360 Flex 7085cc
The new Braun Series 7 360 Flex family was launched three years ago to replace the now discontinued and iconic Series 7.
And while the new shavers didn’t quite match my expectations, they’re still very decent performers.
I would place them somewhere between the Series 3 ProSkin and the Series 8 performance-wise.
So if the price is let’s say quite a bit less than what you would pay for a Series 8, that’s a good deal and a good shaver for the money.
And the Series 7 7085cc checks that box with the current discount.
It’s a powerful shaver and works well on beards of short to medium lengths (I’d say 3 days of growth at most, maybe more if your beard grows back slower).
The 7085cc is a good choice for a beginner as well and will also make a great gift to someone.
It comes with an automatic cleaning & charging station and loads of accessories, including two trimmer heads and various attachments for trimming and maintaining a beard.
