Great Choice

I normally would not use an electric shaver because it causes my face to break out after a couple of shaves. I used this product because it stated that it was for sensitive skin and I was glad that I tried it. It gave a very good shave and that I have not had any problems with razer bumps at all. I would recommend it for anyone looking a good shaver that saves time and is really for sensitive skin. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Yes, I recommend this product !

The best razor I have ever had!

Hands down the Braun 5 series wet / dry razor is the best electric razor I have ever used. It features a cordless design and uses a li-ion battery pack that charges fast and lasts for weeks. It is waterproof so cleaning is a breeze. You can dry shave or use your favorite foam or shave gel. The end result is a shave that is as close as any blade razor without the irritation or cuts. The series 5 also has a slide activated trimmer to make short work of anything you can grow. After using this razor for a week I would not use anything else on my face. I highly recommend you try the series 5 before you buy anything else, your face is worth it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Designed to make a difference!

I've always loved Braun, I currently own a Series 7. With that being said, I believe the Series 5 performs just as well! I have a thick beard and the Braun chews right through it, I usually have to make a few passes and my skin is as smooth as shaving against the grain with a traditional razor. I was always a hairy guy and tried multiple eletric razors, I would always recommend Braun, there's nothing quite like it. It does not rip, tug, or make shaving miserable. It's a fun, quick experience. I'm my opinion, for the super close shave, I use this razor with shaving cream, it makes it glide across your face and seems to make the process even quicker, and cleaning a breeze (being waterproof), just rinse and toss in the drawer till tomorrow.

DisAppointed

i think that Braun Series 3-3040 needs alot of improvement. i didnt get a close shave, even after going over it several times i still had stubble. i didnt try to wet yet due to the fact alot of reviews say it cuts you if u do it wet. i'll try it but im scared right now to do so. i believe that it left you with a clean shave that this razor would be great. its easy to clean. easy to charge. holds a charge really good. isnt to heavy or anything. i gave it 1 star because it just doesnt shave like it should.

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.]

Not bad at all.

I received this product free from Braun to review. The Braun Series 3-3040 is a good shaver, for a quick shave or touch up. This did not harm my face at all; there were no reactions to this razor. I found that no matter how hard I tried there were certain spots that it just left hair behind. The shaver does not provide a close consistent shave. I guess it just isn't too good for thick hair. Charging it is easy because I just plug the charger to the bottom of the shaver and it's ready to use a little before an hour. And its water proof you can use it in the shower not plugged in of course. The razor is light and contoured; it’s a good complement for my morning shave routine.

Nice Razor!

Disclaimer: I received this product for free from Braun to try out.This razor is extremely convenient and I enjoyed using it. I currently use a galette fusion razor, which I am thoroughly pleased with, but this was a nice addition to my shaving routine. I think that this product is well worth the price and is very good quality, however, I just wish that it made a little bit of a closer shave. I still felt like I had a lot of stubble after using this. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Solid Foil Shaver, If a Bit Large

Before receiving the Braun Series 3-3040 I was using a Panasonic ES-SA40, which in its own right was a solid shaver. The main pros that the Braun shaver have going for it are most notably the power and 3-foil head. This thing will cut through pretty much any hair it can find, and will do so cleanly, leaving a nearly razor-smooth shave. On the downside, though, the Braun shaver's head is about an inch thick, making it a little bulky for trimming any narrow areas, and essentially reduces it to a single-foil shaver. Overall, the Braun Series 3-3040 is a great shaver, and though the power and multi-foil design more than make up for the bulk, it's still a bit on the pricey side.

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.
