Cleaning, Renew & Maintenance

Daily cleaning and maintenance is the right way to make sure that your shaver gives consistent shaving results each time. For proper cleaning, use the cleaning and charging station that is added to the shaver package. You can also clean it manually using running water. A cartridge is required for the cleaning station to work and it will easily last for 2-3 months upon 3-4 times shaving per week. However, the cleaning station ensures much faster cleaning.

User Friendliness

Braun has worked effortlessly to make sure that this shaver stands out as one of the best electric shavers on the market. Braun carefully crafted each piece of the elements of the razor. It is very simple to use and clean. Even though you are an amateur or a first timer, you will be an expert after using it for a couple of time. On the other hand, the cleaning station is another simple kit to operate. Just press a press to start the cleaning process. Once you put your shaver inside the cleaning station, it will take less than five minutes to complete cleaning. Moreover, You will find a faster cleaning option on it which allows it to clean in less than 30 seconds.

Shaving Performance

When it comes to the job of a razor, the only thing hits the mind is shaving.  Honestly speaking, I was skeptical when I first came across the razor package. I was not very sure if this would be able to give me the kind of close shave I had been used to with. However, right from the beginning, this shaver proved me wrong and I found it satisfactory. Speaking about the performance, this shaver is consistent in giving a close and clean shave. Expect a buttery smooth shaving experience from this shaver.
