I have never been a fan of hand held battery shavers as I always felt that they left me feeling unshaven.I thought no razor could ever touch a "proper" wet shave.That was until now when I was sent the Braun Series 5.When I used it I was shocked but this was in a good way! The shave left me feeling completly clean and shaven.Not only did the series 5 equal a wet shave but it felt even better .I asked my partner what she thought of the results and she asked if I had a brand new razor as she said my face felt much smoother than when I had used my old one.One of the many great features about the series 5 is that you can use it in the shower as it is waterproof upto 5m.It also fully recharges in 1 hour and if you wanted to it will then give you upto 45 minutes cordless shaving.I was also very impressed with the clean and charge station as it saved me having to clean my shaver.After it has been cleaned in the station the shaver really does feeling like you are using it for the first time.Well done Braun for you have created the ultimate shaving experience and I shall be recomending it to all friends and family who shave.
I often wonder why when i buy a mens shaving product does it not seem long before a 'newer version' comes out. I ask myself - Have i made a wise decision? Did I 'really do my homework and buy the best I could? Well here it is the newer more user friendly Series 5 5070!Compared to my previous series 5 I initially notice a different sound from the motor, not as loud or whirly as my previous one but a more smoother sound which if you can relate to it doesn't sound to harsh. But will it work I ask myself. Quick answer yes it does. Initially it feels much lighter on the skin and not having to push on as much to obtain a smoother shave. Those hairs on my neck that seem to grow the other way to the rest - not a problem it does those too. Something I found so annoying with my previous series 5. Having to hold it at different angles to get a cut on those hairs was such a pain.Thankfully Braun have got round that problem and all the same direction and I get the shave i want. The shave i desire to look professional in my appearance.They have kept the cleaning system which I really did like although the base is a little smaller which is just perfect for the shelf I have in the bathroom for my shaver. The previous series 5 overhung the shelf a little, so i was always worried it would just get knocked off. So piece of mind there.The whole clean and charge system front display is a different it seems more led lights and a somewhat simpler one touch and it charges and cleans.In all Braun has always been a brand to trust for quality and now those little personal niggles I have with the old series 5 have now been ironed out.Would I recommend - well yes and My can look forward top a caribbean journey with me next month.Well done braun.
This has been my first campaign and I was looking forward to trying this out. Once offered the campaign I spent a long time reading up about this product and was excited to receive this. When the product arrived it didn't disappoint and even now a few weeks later I am still as happy as ever with the shaver.The shaver arrived with a cleaning station so once I use the shaver I pop it in the cleaning station where it cleans the shaver itself and also charges it at the same time making this a great product with minimum effort to look after which is always a bonus.The shaver itself is easy to use and a nice size to hold it comfortably, I have used this several times since receiving the product and I feel this is as good to use as a bladed razor. It's a clean cut and my face feels smooth after use.The pivoting head is the highlight of this razor. The head on the razor moves to ensure it reaches all parts of your face and chin making this simple and quick to use. You can also lock the head into one position if you feel this is more comfortable for you, I like this as you have the best of both worlds.Another positive for this razor is a light comes on to let you know whether it needs a light clean or a heavy clean so you can put it in the cleaning unit when it's required. The light cleaning does come on after every use so I always clean it each day.The only downfall I have found so far with this product is it came with a soft cloth travel case where previously my cheaper 3 Series Braun shaver came with a better protected and more sturdy travel case which means you have to more careful packing this when going away.Overall I think this is a perfect product and great shave, I have already spoken to a few people about this telling them how good it is and in future it is definitely a product I would buy again. Great results and a lot quicker than my previous razor.
