Braun Series 3 300s Foil Shaver

So I've been meaning to get hold of a Braun foil shaver for quite some time now and FINALLY the time has come. With a missing patch on my box beard I realised I needed to shave in order for my hair to regrow thicker and fuller to reach it's potential, however far to afraid to use use a razor against my face incase I were to cut myself, I've just been using the foil shaving attachment on my beard trimming kit. Even then my face is quite sensitive as I would develop shaving spots. Thanks to the SensoFoil on the new Braun series 3 I've managed to achieve a clean shave without any razor burn or shaving spots at all! Being an owner of a couple Braun products already (Braun Oral B professional 1000 electric toothbrush & Braun Cruzer 6 Body groomer) I knew wouldn't​ be disappointed due to Brauns solid German build quality. Being only £29.99 the shaver has a stealth black aesthetic with that quality weighty feeling in your hands without feeling like a chore to hold during the shaving process, the handset also has a great ergonomic feel with dimples perfectly positioned for resting your fingers and palm on and a soft touch rubber gripping on the front so the shaver doesn't slip out your hand. The Smart plug charger has a neat little feature automatically converting the voltage from 100-240volts so you don't have to worry about any conversion plugs when it comes to charging abroad. With a shaving period of 20 minutes on a full charge of 4 hours, I managed to get 4 shaves out of the shaver with consistent power, however even when you've completely run out of juice and you need that emergency shave before you leave the house a quick 5 minute charge is sufficient for a shave, which is pretty brilliant for someone like me who's always in a hurry. With the ability to shave wet&dry it's ideal for those quick early morning dry shaves by the sink or even them relaxed shaves lathered up in shaving gel in the shower getting the precision you need every time. The shaving head itself has 3 points of contact each adjusting to every contour of your face with every stroke making sure there's no area on your face left untouched. When your done there's a handy protective cap to prevent any damages to the shaving head. Having a cradle or a charging dock to hold it upright in the bathroom would've been the cherry on top but then again for a great value of £29.99 you can't really knock it! I honestly can't say I have anything negative to say about the Braun series 3 300s and I would definitely recommend it to those with sensitive skin who are after a quality shave from a foil shaver that's​ built to last.

Braun's brilliant series 3 shaver.

You have just got to appreciate the brilliant work Braun goes into creating their shavers. It's hardly a surprise they are the world's No.1 foil shaver brand. Their new series 3 shave has a clever 3 pressure-sensitive shaving system which improves the efficiency of the shaving process. And also ensures maximum skin comfort. It uses SensoFoil, which protects your skin from the ultra-sharp blades. The batteries don't run out easily due to the long-life NiMH batteries which are rechargeable and you get provided with 2. It is built in a durable fashion, cordless and even waterproof for up to 5 metres. Perfect for those clumsy gentleman who might drop their shaver into the sink. You can rinse the shaver easily under warm water. You won't use any other brand after using this Braun shaver.

Amazing bit of kit

I've been using the Braun 3 300s electric razor for almost a month now and I love it! I get a nice close shave everyday, and if I'm running late, it's waterproof, so I can shower and shave together. It is also of a good build quality, this has been tested, as my middle name is butterfingers! It features the same pressure sensitive elements as featured on the more expensive Braun models, and does just as good a job. It also comes boxed with a protective cap and a "smart plug" to fit bathroom sockets (self adjusting for 100-240v), handy for holidays! It comes with 2 rechargeable long-life NiMH batteries, so you can go for ages without having to recharge. A really great product, especially for the price tag!

Brilliant Close Shave

This is genuinely a great shaver. For years I was a wet, manual shave kind of guy but found I was replacing the blade every week to keep the shave close and clean. So for this reason I decided to get an electric. To date I've had 3. The first was cheap and therefore terrible. It basically pulled the hairs out and missed a quarter of them. The next was good, powerful but the battery lasted 2 shaver at most. Then i got the Series 3. When I first picked it up, I thought it felt a bit light and may not be powerful enough to provide a proper shave. However I charged it up and gave it a go and it was fantastic. It was so quick and gave such a clean and smooth shave I was very impressed My previous shavers I've had to go over bits time and time again to ensure all the hairs were gone but with this it took 1 slow movement to ensure it was done. Even the tricky to get top lip was easy as the design of the shaver made it easy with no pain at all. The best part is the cleaning. Just run it under a tap and that's it. No needing to brush it clean. The battery has lasted hours so far on one charge so very happy. Overall I would fully recommend this shaver, it's ideal and a great price.

Almost too good to be true!

Firstly, let me prefix everything I have to say on the shaver with the fact that I rarely shave, as such the test I gave it was probably the "worst case" you could really throw at it, a closest-setting trimmed beard. Certainly more than a few days growth, which I expect is more the "norm". The packaging was nice and stylish, everything was presented well and arrived safely. The device itself was very minimalist in its design; a simple on/off button and a power/charging indicator light. It felt nice and light in my hand, perfect for taking on trips without weighing you down, yet enough weight to feel solidly built. The shave it gave was incredible, especially when you consider the cost of the device, it performed at least as well as a shaver that cost 10x the amount! The shave was very close, very rapid and completely without irritating my skin. Cleaning it was a breeze thanks to it being a simple washable shaver, a quick run under the tap and it was spotless. Though I did note that if needed the blades could be separated and cleaned a bit more thoroughly. All in all, for the price it really can't be faulted, sure you can pay 10x more and get self cleaning shavers, etc. but for a great portable and performing shaver, look no further!
