Poor product

I bought this product and have been very disappointed by it's performance. It doesn't seem shave as close as I would expect a good product to do as when I put my polo shirt on it still catches in some of the stubble that is left.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Typical Braun Quality

My second Braun shaver - the first having lasted over 10 years. Much better performance, longer battery life between recharges (> 2weeks), and shaves pretty much as close as a wet shave.Still in early stage of its life (3 months), but very pleased so far.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Fast, Clean Shave

I used to hate shaving. Hated it. So I rarely did it much to my girlfriend's dismay. Now thanks to the Braun Series 3, I can get a fast clean shave in every morning without wasting any time. And I don't have to worry about nicking my face and worrying about bleeding on my work shirts. I don't know who is more happier with this razor - my self or my girlfriend. I think it is safe to say that we both love it. I love that I don't have to worry about having spare batteries on hand, I can just charge it and it be ready to go in the morning. I like that I don't have to worry about shaving cream. I like that I can use it in the shower or out of the shower. Excellent shaver in my opinion.

Good But Not Amazing

Overall, I really wanted to love this razor. The packaging is amazing, and straight out of the box the razor feels substantial and well-built. The little trimming accessory is a great touch and works really well. The razor itself however is good, but not great. It can take several passes for it to remove all of the stubble on your face if you have more than a day or two of growth. If you are an everyday shaver this razor will likely be a great fit for you, but if you are lazy or slack on shaving daily (as I often do) then you may have better success with a different product. I will say though of any razor I have ever used, this provides the closest shave and left my skin feeling soft for a long time. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Works great

This razor works extremely well. I was always a disposable razor guy. After trying the braun, I only use this. Works great in the shower. Leaves my fave feeling clean and smooth [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

nice smooth shave

I received the product for free from to try out. Out of the box the shaver was very durable and clean and grip surface is good in the hand. My shave was painless and it worked just as well as the typical razor. This was a great way to take a shave, I could actually see where I was shaving. The shaving process itself with the foil razor was really fast. When I took the extra time with the razor, it did leave my face feeling smooth and without stubble. I hope to be using this shaver for many happy years! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Braun Series 5 5140s Foil Shaver

THE SHAVER DID VERY WELL ON A TWO DAY BEARD GROWTH, I THOUGHT THAT IT WAS EASY TO USE AND DID A VERY FINE JOB, IT DID NOT GET AS CLOSE AS MY REGULAR MANUAL RAZOR, BUT I ONLY SHAVE EVERY OTHER DAY WHEN USING IT BE CAUSE IT IRRITATES MY FACE, I CAN USE THIS EVERY DAY AND IT IS GREAT ON MY SENSITIVE FACE, I HAVE USED IT NOW FOR A WEEK AND HAVE NOT HAD TO RECHARGE IT, AND WITH THE LOCKOUTOPTION FOR TRAVEL IT WILL NOT NEED CHARGING FOR THIS TRAVEL WEEKEND. IT IS VERY COMFORTABLE TO HANDLE AND FITS MY HAND WELL, IT IS NOT BULKY AND IS LIGHT. THE HEAD SWIVELS BACK AND FORTH TO FIT MY FACE WELL. I GIVE IT A WELL DESERVED THUMBS UP.....I MAY NOT GO BACK TO THE BLADE RAZOR BECAUSE OF LESS IRRITATION FROM THIS ELECTRIC RAZOR, I CAN SHAVE EVERYDAY!

Not All Sruff Gown

I enjoyed the Braun Series 5 the first shave, that was until later in the day when I looked in a mirror at work and saw how patchy it shaved me. I've never had an issue using an electric shaver before in regards to patchiness. So next shave I went more detailed and really focused on shaving all parts of my face looking closely in mirror doing so. It took me about double the time my other shavers would, still leaving a weird patchy neck beard that I had to go in with another shaver to clean up. For my face, it works well, I specifically love the side burn shaper, but in terms of full coverage shaving it was not ideal. Another aspect I really enjoyed was how easy the cleanup was. Simply take off the foil razor portion, exposing the inside, use the little cleaning brush provided and maybe blow a few left over stubbles away and BAM your clean. I feel like the more usage of this, the better I will get at it. But from first shave it was not an easy use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

No, I do not recommend this product.

Thanks for letting us know your thoughts on our Series 5 Shaver and we hate to hear you didn't receive the precise shave we'd hope for. It may be helpful to know that it can take up to three weeks for your skin to adjust to a new shaver. It's best to hold the shaver at a 90 degree angle and stretch the skin to shave against hair growth, changing direction as needed. We suggest using a gentle touch and letting the shaver do the work. If you'd like to share more about your shave, please feel free to give us a call at (800) 272-8611.

Braun Series 5 Review

I think that this Braun Series 5 razor is awesome! It shaves clean, smooth, and very easy. It gives a close shave Everytime you use it. You can use it wet or dry, and it gives a clean, close, smooth shave. I am very glad I had the chance to use this razor. Before this Braun, I was using manual razors, but no more. Thanks [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
