Best Men's Electric Shaver?

Options
Hi, I'm going shopping in the next few days for an electric shaver for my partner and am totally confused as to which one is good.

My budget at the moment is up to £40

Are there any in Argos or Boots that men use that are good at getting a close shave without cutting and pulling and that are a decent shaver please? He hasn't had or used an electric shaver before so I don't want to get anything that will pull his hairs out or be uncomfortable or not do the job.

I was looking at this one but I don't know:

Thanks :)

    I bought my hubby a £300 electric shaver a year ago and he has gone back to his usual manual razor as he said that every electric shaver he has used has never shaved as close as a manual and he doesnt like anything other than a really close shave.

    Just make sure that your partner really does want to change from manual shaving.

    Sorry, cant help with a decent one within your budget but good luck.

    That is a good choice -- excellent star rating from nearly 1100 reviews. I've had two Phillips shavers like that and both lasted about a decade.

    Wise words from Sarah1972 but really the only way to know if they suit you is to try one.

    Thank you both for your comments. In his new job he has to shave every other day and has been finding razor shaving too much, so he said about an electric one. So will give the Argos one a go, thank you.

    Thanks for it :)
    I was also looking for it for my brother. I will be giving this to him on his coming birthday.

    May i suggest this one https://www.argos.co.uk/product/9203499 as the heads move independently and you can feel them working and moving on you face.
    ( i have the 7000 series)
    For the extra £10 it is well worth it plus you get the trimmer.
