Hallo Malan
The HIV virus is very sensitive to light, drying out, and chemicals like the chlorine in water. Unless you see physical signs of blood on the razor it is unlikely that you would contract HIV from an electrical razor. However, a razor is like a toothbrush - you should try your best not to share with anyone. If you are very worried about contracting HIV have yourself tested, even if it is just to give you peace of mind.
