Thank you Beauty Review for giving me this awesome shaver to try. It's an impressive package. The shaver has an excellent design and superb construction. It's comfortable to hold and all the controls are easy to access. The carry case (included) is stylish and makes it easy to throw into an overnight bag or even your work/gym bag.
I have a lot of facial hair and it grows quickly so I'm always having to shave. I usually use disposable razors, which is always a time consuming operation to get the hot water running, lather up and shave, and in a busy morning it would usually be relegated to 'next day' status.
It took me a while to get used to the Braun shaver, you definitely have to read the instructions, but well worth it. It's highly effective, and while it takes longer than my usual disposable razor, it's easier to use, and you can shave anywhere (well, as long as you're mindful of the hair mess).
What surprised me the most is how gentle the shaver is and how smooth your skin is afterwards. I did spend a bit of time wondering how this is achieved, but in the end chose to reap the benefits rather than ponder the method.
It's a serious investment, but having said that the disposable razors I usually use cost a small fortune, so in the long run this would be a better bang for your stubble buck.
I now find that I like to have my shaver in my workbag so it's easy to do a quick shave at home or at work if I'm pressed for time. And that smooth, smooth skin at the end is simply a great result.
