Electric Foil Shaver
A foil razor uses an oscillating blade, which basically means that it vibrates as it shaves. They have a foil which has very small holes that allow facial hair to go through. Cutters underneath the foil then remove the hair as they oscillate or move back and forth. Some shavers come with double or triple layer foil levels to maximize shaving efficiency. The thinner the foil means the closer the shave you will receive. Many people are in the opinion that foil shavers give the closet shaves. Foil razors are best for those who shave everyday.

Electric Rotary Shaver
A rotary razor uses rotating cutting heads, usually 3 or 4, to provide the cutting surfaces. The design of a rotary shaver makes it easier to shave difficult areas such as the neck and chin.
Rotary shavers are best for people with thicker hair and who do not shave every day.
