Braun 590

On opening the quite large box, I was surprised and impressed at the quantity and quality of all the kit in there....

The shaver itself is reassuringly shrink wrapped and comes in a sturdy zip case. Apart from power button, there is an impressive row of LEDs rather like my power drill, to indicate battery life. There is also a "sensitive" button to adjust the comfort setting i.e. the amount of head swivel action (full swing, middle and fixed. Being a bit old school, I prefer it "fixed" but go to "middle" sometimes for neck/chin shaving. This is quite a good innovation and with the Gilette Blade Technology contributes to good results.

Also in the box is the cleaning station and a 170ml "clean and renew" refill. This is inserted easily in the bottom of the station and is easy to use. Insert the shaver head first, press the button and leave. The cleaning and drying cycle takes 4 hours and each refill should last for 30 cycles so it's up to you if you want to use it after every shave You can also clean under the tap, which could be useful when on your travels. The instructions recommend replacing the refill after every 8 weeks, used daily or not. The cleaning refills are £8.45 a pair on here so you'd need about 4 sets per year if you adhere to the manufacturers guidelines which we always do don't we chaps ? You will also need a shelf near to your shaver point as the 2-pinned power cord is not the longest. The footprint is approx 13cm x 11cm. There is also a cleaning brush included.

In use, the shaver is very good, handles well, not too noisy and gives good results, particularly in the troublesome neck area. The cleaning system works well and you really feel like you're using a new shaver after a full cycle.

Verified Purchase
I have used Braun shavers for longer than I care to remember, and this model is by far the best. It gives a closer shave than previous models and benefits from what we are told is "Gillette" blade technology. For this reason alone I would highly recommend this shaver.

The cleaning system is excellent and functions well. Check the prices for the cleaning fluid units and perhaps do not select a UK supplier, where the prices are some 20% higher than in mainland Europe.

My one gripe is with the construction of the foil head. After less than one month's use, the central black protective strip which covers the rather vicious teeth between the two stainless-steel foil shaver heads, came adrift and could not be put back in place. This cover when missing makes the shaver unuseable, perhaps even very dangerous. The cost of a new unit (albeit with a new blade unit included) is some 22 Euros from Amazon.de. My complaint to Amazon.co.uk has not met with a reply, but I expect they do not have a template for this kind of complaint!

I will now address the issue to Braun and await a more favourable reply.

Conclusion: buy this model, but look for a better price than Amazon's in the UK. It gives a first class shaving experience. Worth he trouble of looking for a competitive price.

I had been looking at a newer shaver for a while since my Phillishave coolskin hit the big 5 years and it was with some nervousness that I purchased this razor. Going in blind with seemingly no reviews on the internet I closed my eyes and hit buy. Well two weeks on I can say it's an excellent shaver. It cuts close and quickly with no irritation, even on my own skin which is quite dry. The best thing for me is the cleaning system which not only looks great but leaves the shaver spotless and with a zesty lemon smell. This saves a lot of time as I had to manual clean my Phillisave constantly and I was never able to get it clean enough for my satisfaction. This is a top razor and well worth the money, having all the features of the 7 series (which is currently £190!) minus the pulsating head which if some reviews are to be believed isn't worth too much!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My normal shave is a Gillette M3 Power wet shaver, but every now and then I try an electric to see if they have improved enough to be a replacement for it. The Braun is probably the best I've found - I don't think it will replace my wet shaver completely, but I will certainly be keeping it on hand for quick shaves when I don't have time to wet shave.

Ergonomically, the Braun is superb, as you would expect. It has a nice rubber grip, the weight is enough to suggest a quality product, but not so much that it feels ungainly, and it feels very good in the hand. Build quality is excellent, both for the shaver and the supplied accessories (case, charger, cleaning brush, cleaning station), and it all feels built to last.

In use, the Braun feels very good against the skin. I've tried rotary electric shavers, but these feel as if they are ripping the hairs out rather than cutting them cleanly, and they irritate as a result. The Braun, by contrast, causes no irritation, and it glides smoothly over the skin. The shave feels close initially - not quite as close as a blade, but not far off, and in some areas (such as under the chin) you can get closer with this than with a blade. The problem I have found is that stubble seems to reappear a lot faster with this than with a blade, suggesting that it isn't cutting as close as you might like - but then, it is no problem to run the shaver back over your face for a quick touch-up later on in the day.

The Braun is easy to clean - it's waterproof so can just be rinsed under the tap if you don't have time to use the dedicated cleaning station (or don't want to pay for refills for it...). It charges in around an hour, and a charge is claimed to be sufficient for 45 minutes shaving. The battery is lithium ion, so memory effect should not be a problem.

Overall, it's the best electric shaver I've tried - still not as good as a blade, but what it lacks in closeness, it makes up for in convenience.
