BRAUN SERIES 9: THE ULTIMATE SHAVE

Sean Loughran

Christmas is quickly creeping up on us this year, and with only 86 days until my favourite holiday I thought it necessary begin to sharing some of the items that you should be adding to your wish list. This post is dedicated to an item that has just arrived on my desk, and as I prep my skin for my next adventure, I thought it fitting to share this with you today.

I shave approximately 2-3 times per week, and have had the same shaving regime for the past few years. I've experimented with various manual razors in the past and found that the Gillette Fusion range works best on my skin. I've also tried out a few electric razors but never found one that gave me as close a shave as I like.

It can be tiring shaving with a manual razor at times, especially when I'm in a rush, so having a backup for a quicker shave is something I long for. It wasn't until recently that I heard about the Braun Series 9 electric razor, a breakthrough product with SyncroSonic Technology, which apparently provides the world's most efficient and comfortable shave.

As I mentioned before, I love a very close and completely smooth shave. This razor offers the closest possible shave by using OptiFoil shaving foils to manoeuvre nimbly to cut hair as close to the skin as possible over every contour. The Braun Series 9 also provides a faster shave than ever before, by generating 10,000 sonic micro vibrations which delivers 40,000 cross-cutting actions every minute. 

Available from Boots, Amazon & other major electronic retailers, see a list of stockists here

This razor has a fully flexible shaving head, that navigates facial contours with ease. The four cutting elements in the shaving head work in complete harmony and synergy together to capture every type of hair. The two new centre blades - the Direct & Cut Trimmer and the HyperLift & Cut Trimmer lift, direct, trim and cut tricky facial hair.

Included in the box is the razor itself, cleaning oil and brush, charging station, and an instruction manual. 

When it comes to using an electric razor, the charging can be a bit of a nightmare. The Braun Series 9 has a new Li-ion rechargeable battery, which has ten percent more power than its predecessor and lasts for up to 50 minutes at one time. A handy charging meter keeps you informed of the current charge so you'll never end up with a dead battery mid-shave, can you imagine? 

I love how compact and lightweight this razor is, I've packed it into my luggage for my trip to Toronto this morning. It shaves (saves*) me packing my manual razors and shaving foams. When turned on, it's not obnoxiously loud like other electric razors I've used. With this little device I can get away with shaving anywhere in the world, at anytime. 

Getting to know my new toy!

This is one for all you busy guys out there who can't devote enough time to shaving in the morning. I'll still continue to use the Gillette Fusion manual razors but this Braun Series 9 is my new travel companion and will be joining me on all future trips. 

Speaking of trips, that's me packed up and ready now for my next adventure. Toronto, I'm coming for you!
