The shaver does exactly what it's supposed to do and does it well. Good build quality, attractive design, nice to hold and perfect shave.

Purchased this Braun shaver after reading the advice provided on the website. I have previously had a Philips rotating head shaver which has never provided the closeness of shave I wanted, and irritated my neck. The advice on the website suggested changing to a foil shaver. What great advice! The Braun gives a close and non-irritating shave - exactly what I like. The unit has a really nice feel in the hand to boot. Top drawer!!

Nice shaver

Thou I like this product it will for me never replace a wet shave, but stops me cutting my face with an open blade!! Definitely be getting oil for my skin before the shave, I've tried wet and dry shave but prefer a dry shave. Definitely worth the money and would recommend it.
