easy to use

I love the way and ease by which my young brother can use it without hurting himself as he is still a teenager thus mostly used to cut himself while shaving. Now i am thinking of buying one for my hubby as well as i am impressed with the quick n neat look that it gives you

Yes, I recommend this product !

Excellent service and warranty replacement

I was delighted with the level of service I received from Braun, including the hassle free nature of my warranty replacement. I would choose to buy from Braun over their competitors again for the piece of mind that if the product had any issues, Braun would take care of it. Good product, great service. Thanks

Yes, I recommend this product !

The Perfect Shave.

Today I received my free Braun BT5050 beard trimmer to review. First impressions were positive - smartly designed package with an efficiently packaged beard trimmer and accessories inside. I unpacked everything and was pleasantly surprised at how stylish the beard trimmer was. As well as being rather stylish, the actual beard trimmer is very light and fits quite comfortably in the hand. The only thing that I was slightly disappointed with was the cheap feel of the travel bag, but I already have a shaving bag that I use for my shaving products so it doesn't put me off the product. The other accessories are reasonably designed and complement the beard trimmer well. The beard trimmer precision and long beard combs are, like the beard trimmer itself, light and stylish - a very good design. I love how you are able to change the dial on the beard trimmer precision comb to get the perfect beard length - I have used other brands of beard trimmers and they don't have this feature. I did think that this dial wouldn't actually work, but it really does! Now let's get down to how the beard trimmer performed. I purposefully let my beard grow a little longer knowing that I'd be able to try out this new beard trimmer, and I am very pleased with how it handled my long beard. However, I did have to go over a few places multiple times to ensure all hairs were of the same length. I usually take my time when shaving because I like a perfect shave and I had the beard trimmer running for about 25 minutes nonstop - there was hardly any change in battery performance (I had, however, charged it for about 4 hours beforehand). The blades were sharp, ran super smoothly and allowed for a brilliant shave, but after a while the blades did become hot to the touch. Another good feature is that the trimmer is washable! You usually have to pay a lot more money to have a waterproof trimmer. Very impressive. I did give the trimmer a little rinse in warm water and it still works perfectly! It really is easy to clean. My final thoughts are similar to my initial impressions - positive. A very good quality, and reasonably priced beard trimmer that is able to deliver a smooth and precise shave. I will definitely continue to use this trimmer to keep my beard tame. I would highly recommend this beard trimmer to those who want a trimmer that doesn't break the bank and is able to perform like it should. It truly is a product of German engineering.

No trouble with this stubble!

I've only recently jumped on the beard bandwagon, so I was delighted when Braun sent me the BT5050 beard trimmer to try for free. Previously I was using razors to trim the edges and (rather terribly) free handing the tiny clipper attachment on my electric shaver to trim my beard. But now I have finally mastered the neat business beard look. So what did I Love and what do I think could be improved? The Big winner for me was the very clever central bezel to control the clipper grade lengths. This is so simple to use and so much easier than changing the head for each desired length that you often see on competitor's models. This idea, combined with the dual attachments, means you can choose from 0 all the way to 20 meaning the Braun BT5050 can handle just about any job you throw at it from neat stubble to full on Santa! I really liked how quiet the clippers were. Compared to others I've come across this was verging on barber shop levels of quietness that I would expect from far more expensive models. A very impressive feature! One issue I found was that the large head on the charging cable was rather heavy which meant it kept sagging in the shaver socket which prevented it charging. In the end I had to resort to resting the trimmer on a tub right by the socket so that there was no weight on the charger. I think this element could do with a design rethink. Another minor quibble (and I had to think hard) is that it makes quite a lot of mess. Definitely a tool to be used over a sink or a towel. I know there are some other options on the market that offer a collection system for hair and that would be a welcome feature, but as I say, I'm nit-picking. All in all the Braun BT5050 feels great in the hand with a lovely rubberised grip, it's lightweight and portable, has some fantastic design features (notably the bezel for setting length) and is very quiet compared with other examples I've come across. I would definitely recommend this trimmer to anyone looking for a smart compact styling tool. Well done Braun! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Really Versatile

As far as male grooming goes, this is definitely a great product. It is so quick and simple to use (including cleaning - simply rinse under a tap). The 2 guards are easy to clip on and off and change. The packaging states that you have 50 minutes shave time, but in actual fact I think it is slightly less than this (still long enough for any super vain blokes though). Obviously I have to take the manufacturers claim of life long sharpness at face value. The neat little travel bag and current converting charger are also a great little addition to this product. I highly recommend this product, I had hours of fun messing about in the bathroom mirror, I nearly lost a full morning! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Brilliant braun yet again

I received my BT5050 for free from Braun and I must say, I am quite impressed. I have used similar products in the past, but these have been more general 'body groomers', but this targets the bearded man and it delivers. I was suprised at how lightweight the unit was and it gave a very smooth shave - no tugging at all. I definitely think that I would have had more of a benefit from the product had my facial hair had been a bit longer, but it is quite short at present (I'll definitely be recommending this to my brother, who's facial hair is far more impressive!). I hasten to add that I did try using the shaver without the blade guards on areas where my facial hair was very short - I do not recommend this, as doing so can cause nicks, and this is not the intended use for the item.

Does the job but nothing to stand out of the crowd

Thanks to Braun for sending this product for free in exchange for a genuine review. As someone who trims only once a week, I have been able to use this few times now. The design and finish is cool. The adjustment dial starts from 1mm and increases in steps of 0.5mm and goes up to 20mm. The lock on the dial is a nice feature to keep the trim size under control. Water resistant future is good as you don't have to fiddle in removing blades and cleaning it with brush etc. One thing that brings my view down is that you have to charge it for 8 hours for 1 hour use. Come-on, we are in 2016 and should be able to deliver better batteries. I own another device which when charged for 1 hr can run for 10 hours and is on average pricing range. In a nutshell this would deliver the result but doesn't have anything to stand out of the crowd. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Beard Grooming made Easy

i received this beard trimmer free from Braun. This beard trimmer comes with a pouch for keeping the main instrument in together with the other bits and bobs that come with it. It has a rotary dial to trim your sideburns/beard/moustache all to the same length of between 1mm - 10mm. There is also A longer comb that covers up to 20mm. And that's it really - and what more would you need? It allows you to keep control of your designer stubble - if that is your style - but also allows you to tame a longer beard of almost an inch in length. Braun are a German firm who make well designed, well-built items for personal grooming, and they generally have longevity. This is another excellent product, and as I have light hair and a light beard, I need to be careful that I don't end up looking like the rather scruffy Jeremy Corbyn! I'm grateful to this trimmer for helping me achieve that. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
