4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not for Very Sensitive Skin, 30 May 2014
This review is from: Braun Series 3 340s-4 Rechargeable Wet and Dry Foil Electric Shaver (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As a Vine Voice, I have tested many different razers/shavers, over the past 3 years. Some have been OK and some have been excellent. This is the first Braun shaver I have obtained via the Vine programme. As a young man, I used Phillishave models, ranging from the cheap two head models, right up to the magnificent 3 head, pivoting head design, which in the late 1980's cost over £100. When the Phillishave broke and could not be fixed, I bought a very expensive Braun shaver, (due to the slick advertising of the time) which was taken back to Argos within a few days, as it was pathetic. Since then I started wet shaving and have tended to stick with this type of shave ever since. I have sensitive skin and electric shavers tend to burn my face and I cannot get them to cut close enough, without causing irritation. So this wet and dry shaver caught my eye, when it came up on the Vine list..

This product shaves very well. It cuts 3 day hair growth, without having to resort to the trimmer. The actual cut speed can vary depending upon how much battery power is still left. It has easy to detach foil units for cleaning but you have to be careful that the cutters don’t spring off when removing foils. . The shaver itself does not look spectacular, but it appears to be made from good quality materials. The Braun designers have made sure that is comfortable to hold and has a good grip even when being used in the shower. Trimmer works fairly well on long hair. The final part of this review has to focus on the major downside for me, a gent with sensitive skin. I have tried using this shaver in the shower and it still irritates my skin if I tried to use it to get a smooth shave and or if it is used too much. I do not want to have red sore skin and so I would not swap my razer for this shaver.

Overall this is a good product, but it is not suitable for my sensitive skin.
