Smart and effective.
on 22 August 2010
I wasn't entirely sure what to expect when I received this Braun Series 3 380-3 Shaver, but I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. The packaging and accessories which come with the product are the first things which caught my eye. The shaver comes with a charger, a little stand, a brush to clean the shaver with as well as a rather smart-looking case. All of this means that the shaver is extremely easy to charge, use and transport around. Initially the instructions tell you that a charge of around 4 hours is necessary, however with subsequent charges a 1 hour charge should be sufficient to get you back up to full power and if you are only after a quick shave then a mere 5-minutes charging time should be enough time. This is obviously an extremely attractive feature of the product. On the front are lights indicating the amount of charge (full-low) and this is obviously a handy guide.
The product can be used in the bath/shower. The head of the shaver is removable so as to allow for cleaning, and this will no doubt mean that replacing the head will be a less frequent occurrence than if removing the head were not necessary.
I guess, however, the main thing that would sway someone as to whether or not to buy a shaver would be the way it actually shaved and I have no complaints here either. The shaver provides a smooth and clean shave and is extremely comfortable to use. My skin can be irritated by certain shavers/creams etc. but so far this shaver has caused no problems whatsoever (there is a note saying that it has been designed for sensitive skin!).
So overall I cannot give this product any less than full marks as I simply have nothing to complain about-it looks fantastic, the accessories are fantastic and the way it shaves is well...fantastic!!
