Braun Electric Razor for Men, Series 5 5050cs Electric Foil Shaver with Precision Beard Trimmer, Body Groomer, Rechargeable, Wet & Dry with EasyClean and Charging Stand

These attachments are easily clipped on and off just like the blade head mentioned above. I only shave every 2 or 3 days (I’m retired and can get away with that). Unfortunately, if I do that this razor does not cut all the beard growth and leaves hairs. You have to go over repeatedly, or in my case, go over with my old Norelco I wanted to replace. If I shave again the next day, I am happy with this Braun, otherwise it is a disappointment. The Li-ion battery will ensure up to 50 minutes worth of cordless use, with the option of a 5-minute quick charge function.

The cleaning cartridge contains a highly flammable liquid so keep it away from sources of ignition. Do not expose to direct sunlight and cigarette smoking nor store it over a radiator. Detach the shaver from the power supply before using it with water.

Braun Series 5

Overall, the build quality and ergonomics are adequate considering the price of the Series s, but the shaver feels underwhelming compared to the old Series 5. My main gripe with this model is related to the shaving head. The shaver is also much lighter at only 174g/0.38 lbs according to my kitchen Philips Norelco Shaver scale. The Braun 5018s and all the new Series 5 razors are suitable for wet & dry use. One of the models in this revamped line is the Braun 5018s (the UK/European version is called 50-B1200s). This particular Series 5 is bound to be the pick of the range thanks to its very reasonable price.

Unless you have super-sensitive hands, you won’t be able to feel a grain of hair when measuring the performance. This is a topic for the latter part of the review. I already told you guys, “Braun has three cutting elements.” Two of these are SensoFoil blades.

I again recommend using the Series s on shorter facial hair to avoid any potential discomfort. I personally have very sensitive and dry skin, especially on the neck, but didn’t have any major issues using the 5018s. Remington Shaver The shave was however more enjoyable and I even managed to finish in a shorter time. To my surprise, it was also good on the chin and under the nose, two areas where I have particularly thick facial hair.
