Braun Cruz 5 Rechageable Foil Shaver,
This review is from: Braun Cruzer 5 Rechargeable Foil Electric Shaver (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
There is still a lot of disagreement about whether foil or rotating heads make the best shaver. A consumer magazine came out firmly in favour of the latter, but I disagree. It simply depends on the individual. For me, foil shavers give a better result, and Braun make the best ones. This shaver is simple and gives an effective shave. Somehow I get cuts even using electric shavers and this was no exception. But it is a good basic shaver, the charge is still holding after 10 days use, and it actually feels well made. It's also ergonomically well designed, feeling 'right' in the hand.
The charging cord is short, and I find it disappointing that no carry case is provided. This is mean of Braun. I wouldn't pay full price for this shaver, but it does give a more than acceptable quality shave, and, being Braun, I would expect it to last.
Change the foil every 18 months though. From past experience, they suddenly snap.
