Shaving is one of those things in life that you love to hate — especially since it involves a contraption with sharp edges that could leave you with a cut or two after.
It’s taken a while, but razors have evolved into something that can fit the needs of whoever is using it, regardless of what they’re looking for in their shave.
There are razors that can shave dry, razors that can be thrown away after one use and razors combined with gel to ease the experience.
The technology built in razors has evolved, too. Taking them from throw-away junk to smart technological necessities. One of these technological advanced razors is the Braun Series 9, made for wet or dry shaving.
A top-seller at Walmart, this razor comes with a steeper price tag than one might expect for a shaver, but all of the built-in elements make this a long-lasting, everyday necessity.
“Most incredible electric I have ever owned,” wrote a customer. “So happy I spent the extra money and got the best.”
An auto-sensing motor shaves more hair in one stroke than any other shaver on the market, according to the product description. In one motion, 10,000 micro vibrations occur simultaneously to capture the most hair possible. Not to mention, it’s designed to last for seven years.
Braun is known for its high-end razors, and die-hards say this series is their favorite.
“I was finally able to shave all of those hard to shave places with relative ease,” a happy shopper wrote. “I have owned the Braun Series 5, Series 7 and now the series 9. I can now actually say that I’m finally amazed. Stupendously Awesome product. Superior in every way… I would Highly recommend.”
The Braun Series 9 has five distinct shaving elements, including skin guard protection, for the precision and comfort any person would want. If that’s not enough, there’s two specialized trimmers included to help with hard-to-reach areas.
A direction-flexible head adapts to any skin type or curve of the face safely.
The customizable razor can be used for those who like to shave dry, with water or with gel, and an alcohol-based clean and charge station removes any of that unwanted stubble that’s usually difficult to remove between the blades.
The station automatically lubricates and charges the shaver, too, so every use feels brand new.
Another shopper titled his review, “I look forward to shaving now.” He said, “I was afraid to spend the money on this only to find that it works as poorly as other electric razors. I let my hair grow kind of long to test it so my hair would be laying down and hard to cut. It shaved every single hair, and I know this sounds crazy, but maybe even more closely than my blade. I had to work and go over a couple of spots on my neck 3 or 4 times, but those are really tough spots. The last time I used it, I shaved in about 90 seconds. This shaver is definitely worth the money.”
And, those who have the razor claim that it’s the real deal, an investment worth every penny. “I have been using electric razors for 50 years, so I have tried several brands and many models,” one shopper wrote. “I only used the top rotary electric razor for the past 20 years. But I saw this Braun series 9 9090cc razor a couple of months ago, read several reviews, looked at Braun’s website, etc., and decided I would buy one sometime. When Walmart reduced the price, I decided the time was now! I have used it for two weeks, and it is the best razor I have ever used! Great close shave.”
