Shaving FAQ

What‘s the difference between foil and rotary shavers?

Rotary shavers are designed to work with cyclical movements while Braun foil shavers are designed to work with efficient sideways movements on the skin giving perfect control and precision. The foils protect the skin from irritation and are specifically designed to deliver the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun.

Do you have any recommendation on how to shave with an electric foil shaver?

Braun recommends you shave before you take a shower. After a few days without shaving, for example during the weekend, you should trim your stubble before you shave. Stretch the skin and shave against the direction of beard growth. Hold the shaver at a right angle (90°) to your skin. Keep the pressure even to achieve the the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun.

How often do I need to change the shaver head?

Braun recommends replacing all cutter parts every 18 months. A replacement part indicator on the LED display ensures you know when it’s time to change the cutter parts in order for your shaver to always stay at 100% performance.

Here are some tips to get the most out of each foil:

  • Use light pressure when shaving
  • Hold the shaver at a 90 degree angle
  • Regularly clean and oil the foil

Please do not use a damaged foil, as it can lead to injuries on the skin.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
A no-nonsense, value shaver, which gives a superb close shave. I've used several Braun models over the years, and this ticks all the boxes, while avoiding the unnecessary extra bells and whistles its higher-end counterparts seem to have in overabundance. The product is really pared down - there's not even a travel case or sleeve - but what you do get is a very high quality shaver.

The head has a good spring to it, and glides across the contours of my face easily. My skin is quite sensitive, but the shaver is gentle enough on it despite giving a really close cut. It charges quickly (about an hour), and provides almost the same time in shaving (at least enough for a fair few days between charges).

Judging it on the quality of the shave, it's at least as good as Braun's higher-end models, not to mention less complicated and more compact. A great shaver for travelling (or simply saving space in the bathroom at home!).

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have used many different types/makes of shaver and have quite a sensitive skin but I am delighted with the results I've achieved with this Braun 340s shaver. It has all of the core features that you need on a shaver and none of the superfluous ones found on the some of the "top of the range" shavers. In the box you get the shaver, charger/mains adaptor (this has the UK bathroom legal two pin type plug rather than square pin 13 Amp plug); cleaning brush; blade cover (this is easy to miss as it is wrapped in the protective sheeting) and instructions.

The Braun Series 3 340s-4 shaver provides around 45 minutes shaving time which for me is about a week to 10 days worth from a single charge. The charging time is about an hour, although, Braun recommend the first charge (or if you haven't used the shaver for a few months) is around four hours. The batteries are Lithium Ion which tend not to suffer from a memory effect and hold their charge longer. There's an green LED charging indicator which blinks during charging and becomes steady when charged. A low charge (red) LED is provided and when it illuminates you should have sufficient power remaining to finish your shave. An LED will also remind you when the cutter cassette replacement is necessary. The on/off switch is decisive and there's a handy long hair trimmer for sideburns, moustache or a beard - it simply slides into position.

The shaving performance is very good resulting in a smooth, clean shave without irritation to the skin. The shaving head is formed of three elements - two foils and a cutter. The triple blades are nicely sprung and follow the contour of your face which may explain the ultra-smooth shave. The long hair trimmer which clicks into place is also effective at cutting stray hairs and sideburns etc.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is the Braun Series 3 Model 340s - 4 rechargable "Wet and Dry" shaver.

I have been using Braun shavers (mostly 7 Series) for over 25+ years and so can claim to know how best to use them especially in terms of shaving method. I was pleased to have the opportunity to test a Braun model from the lower end to see whether it is really necessary to pay a fortune (by buying one of the top end models) to get a really satisfying shave especially as they all tend to make the same claims in terms of the quality of the shave..

First impressions were good, a smart and attractive blue and black handset and a similar foil arrangement to that previously used. No fancy extras, no expensive cleaning system, no charging stand, no travel case - just a charging cord, a plastic foil guard, a cleaning brush and a small oil container. ...all that is needed on a basic model. It went on initial charge whilst I read all the claims made about performance and I started to wonder why I had paid such a lot for several Series 7 shavers.

When it was fully charged I left it to try the next morning. I shave daily so the length of my beard is never long enough to cause a razor to struggle. So when it came to the first shave I was a little disappointed with the performance. The shave was patchy and to get an "acceptable" shave took repeated passes and the time taken was in excess of 12 mins. Each day since then I have used the shaver and by today that makes 35 shaves. Regrettably performance has not really improved in fact I have even had to finish off with the 7 Series shaver. One thing I noticed early on was the distinct note change of the motor when it started the shave. I took it away from my face and the note of the motor rose.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've been happy with a Philips rotary the past three years. The Philips shaver caresses and gently soothes as it removes, almost unobtrusively and without any histrionics, the stubble that's grown on my face overnight. It's so quiet that it's close to shaving by stealth.

This German Braun model however attacks the face with all the ferocity of a biting tackle by Bastian Schweinsteiger. It's a real man's shaver and you're never in doubt that it's in operation as it noisily - and effectively - kicks and bullies the whiskers off your face.

It's a great looking instrument with a soft grip surface that runs almost the entire length of both flanks and a lovely metallic blue section that offsets the black body nicely. It also has a nice beard trimmer that is engaged at the back - and, for me, this is a bonus feature that my Philips lacks.

And, it looks super stylish when it's recharging in the attractive stand that accompanies it.

Overall it delivers a good, close shave in a minimum amount of time - and you can't really ask much more of a shaver than that. A lot of this is down to the triple action free float system (their words) that er, allows the shaver to float freely over your face with its triple action.

Negative points? I can think of two: first of all, it's not the cheapest model around; and secondly there's what I believe to be a slight design fault insofar as the top is too shallow and can come off when you exert too much pressure on the underside of your chin - and slip.

This machine has now become my new main shaver. No, that it isn't a typo; it's not become my new mains shaver, which is to say a shaver that operates directly from the mains, because of course it's a rechargeable. No, it's become my new PRINCIPAL shaver and has relegated my Philips to the role of trusty back-up; a reliable supersub if you like.
