Braun Series 5 Wet and Dry Shaver

You may remember in our Father’s Day gift ideas post that we featured the Braun Series 5 Wet and Dry Shaver. Since then Matthew has been putting the product through it’s paces. I know Father’s Day was months ago but we wanted to make sure that the product was thoroughly tried and tested.

All Braun Series 5 shavers are made in Germany and combine advanced technology with world-famous design and high quality standards.

Up until being sent the Series 5 Shaver Matthew has always shaved using a razor and shaving gel. He was a little worried that he wouldn’t get the same feeling that he normally would get from a wet shave. But even he was surprised as to how well the Series 5 shaver compared. He did say that it took a little getting used to as the way that you shave using the Braun is different but once you have used it a few times it doesn’t feel any different at all and that he even preferred a shave using the shaver as there was less messing around. What he likes about this shaver is that he has the choice of either a wet or a dry shave, and that if he chose to have a wet shave he could still use his favourite foam and gel.


The Braun Series 5 Wet and Dry Shaver is designed so that it can be used with or without the power cord which is great if you forget to charge it but a one hour charge provides 45 minutes of cordless use and if you are in a hurry a 5 minute quick charge provides enough power for one shave. The one thing that Matthew noticed is that even in using the shaver for the last few months is that he has only had to charge it fully twice. It really does hold it’s charge well. 

The Series 5 Shaver has a number of unique features. One is FlexMotionTec which gives efficient shaving with less skin pressure, minimizing skin irritation. It also has UltraActiveLift technology. This effectively lifts and cuts problem hairs in fewer strokes meaning you don’t have to go over and over the same spot to get those awkward hairs meaning less skin irritation for you.  The new PowerDrive gives the shaver 20% more power than previous shavers, the high speed cutting even works on thick hair too. As the shaver has CrossHair blades stubborn hairs are easily cut too.

The Series 5 Shavers Main Features:

  • Lift and Cut technology
  • FlexMotionTec technology to maximise skin contact
  • Foil system
  • Pop up trimmer for longer hairs

  • 5 minute quick charge option

The Series 5 Shaver has an RRP £200. It can be bought from all good retailers and was recently on offer in boots for half price. With Christmas on the way you will be able to get the shaver on offer from other retailers too and I think it would make a great gift for one of the important men in your life.
