5.0 out of 5 stars Cuts Others Down to Size, 1 Dec. 2012
This review is from: Braun Series 5 5030s-5 Electric Shaver (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've used and reviewed several electric shavers in the past and until this arrived I was using a Philips Aquatouch but this totally cuts any of those down to size. From the moment you remove it from the box you can see that it's well built and comes with a bag for travel - something that this particular shaver excels at with a locking function available to prevent accidently turning it on and wasting the battery while in the case. It has lights to indicate when its charging or needs charging and the whole unit is water resistant for easy cleaning - just run under the tap.

But what about the shave? Hopefully its not just because its new but I can't knock this, massively more effective than the Philips unit I was using before and probably as tight as a razor just without the risk or pain. You can also rotate the head and then lock it into various different positions which while not something that I personally used, something that I see could be useful for some people. After use, you can just unclip the top section and run it under the tap ensuring that its clean and ready to use for next time.

Overall, I can do little to fault this shaver. It's effective, flexible and keeps you informed - it comes highly recommended.
