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.

The best electric shaver that I have ever had hands down!

Upon receiving the Braun® Series 3-3040 for free in the mail to review I immediately tore open the package to charge it and get to shaving! While waiting patiently for the shaver to charge two things caught my attention while reading the package. The first was the fact that it is able to be used dry, wet or wet with actual shaving cream, and the second being the trimmer that is attached to it. The anticipation of the functionality of this shaver was more than I could handle, and boy did it deliver. The attached trimmer, unlike the trimmers on other electric shavers that I have used in the past, works like a dream! I always have mostly a full beard and use a secondary beard trimmer in conjunction with a shaver, with the Braun® Series 3-3040 I am no longer in need of two tools. The other great thing about the Braun® Series 3-3040 is the fact that it can be used wet or dry. This is an amazing fete in itself. Using this shaver dry doesn't get 100% of the stubble, but, if you get the remaining stubble wet the Braun® Series 3-3040 rids the neck of the rest of what is left behind. Lastly the contouring foils are much better than the standard stationary foils on other shavers. There is virtually no razor burn due to the mobility of the parts. All around this razor comes with my highest of recommendations of any and all razors that I have ever used. I will happily continue to use the Braun® Series 3-3040 weekly and I will continue to sing its praises. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Amazing Shaver

Braun has really done an excellent job with this shaver and I'm pleased to be able to test it out. I have tried it many times now, both dry and with shaving cream. This shaver does great either way! My preference is with shaving cream but as I stated, either way works well. I feel that it is important to note that this is not a safety razor or strait razor. Therefore it shouldn't be compared to them. However, as electric shavers go, this is a very solid product that gets a shave faster and closer than other electric shavers I've tried. I love the easy cleanup and water proof features as well. Thanks for an amazing product Braun! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Braun® Series 3

I was both impressed and unimpressed with this razor.First of all: the razor works while wet!!! That is a total positive. This type of razor tends to burn more so needs the ability to work wet. I have not have a closer shave in my life. Not only was the stubble again, but it felt like it had never existed.Secondly: The nature of this type of razor is to offer a really close shave, because of this there is a lot of razor burn and ingrown hairs that happen. Two days after using this razor I broke out with a terrible burning in my neck. Maybe I'm not shaving correctly, but it was painful for a couple days.All in all, I recommend this razor. For the little time in between the smooth face and the in grown hairs, I looked and felt very sharp. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great Shave, but a Little Noisy

I was so excited to receive my new Braun Series 3-3040 shaver in the mail!In the BoxThe box contains several pieces, including the shaver itself, a power cord, a cleaning brush, and a protective cap. The first time I picked up the shaver, I could tell that it was well-built. The handle has a rubberized portion, which results in a confident grip, whether you are shaving dry or wet.OperationThis is my first foil electric shaver, so I'm more accustomed to using a rotary-type shaver. That being said, I was a little worried that the "straight" blades would not result in as close of a shave around my chin or other curvy areas. The first thing I noticed when turning the saver on was the noise. It sounded more like an electric buzzer than an electric shaver. It's even noisier when using the trimmer portion. Honestly, the noise was a little intimidating.The Actual ShaveDespite the noise and my initial apprehension about whether the straight blades would be able to provide a close shave on the curvy parts of my face, I was pleasantly surprised after using the razor for the first time. The shaver provided as close of a shave as a manual razor, and the triple action free-float system had no problem gliding across the curvy parts of my face.Clean-upClean-up was easy! Since the shaver is designed for both wet and dry use, I was able to simply rinse the entire unit in the sink. It was a little difficult to clean the hairs out of the shaver using the cleaning brush, but after about a minute of scrubbing, the shaver was good as new!Overall I was happy with this product. The only real concern I had was that it was a little noisy to use. This wasn't really a problem, but it could be a little irritating when shaving near the ears.

First Braun Experience

I was very excited to be apart of this campaign. I use a foil razor every morning to keep around my normal scruff clean. The Braun Series 3 arrived and was really nice. The design is sleek and the weight of it made it feel sturdy and in charge. The first two - three times I used it, I had to wash my face after. It left a dark dirty mark in all the areas I shaved. Maybe it was the original grease on the blades? But after that it seemed to be ok. It does a good job of shaving hair, my only con is that it's a little too big for my liking. If you're not shaving your entire facial hair it's hard to clean up just around edges cause the foil part it large. I haven't attempted this in the shower. Thought of an electric razor against my face in water scares me a little so I prolly will never use it wet. All in all I like the quality and would recommend for full face shaving. And maybe cleaning it first before you begin first time usage. :-) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The best electric razor I've used but...

Before I got this product, I wanted to make sure I knew what I was getting. I wanted to make sure that I got a good close shave since most of the electric ones I've used always left me very prickly. That was my main focus that I wanted. I really wasn't disappointed. It gives a really nice close shave but there's still just something I can't get used to electric razors. It has although been the best one that I have tried. It doesn't pull any hairs, It has two heads which is nice. One for the overall shaving experience and then a thin one for details and getting those sideburns just right. Overall I did like it. Will I continue to use it? I wouldn't say I would use it a lot. probably just for a quick shave but I still prefer my handled manual razors. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Highly satisfied with the shavers appearance and performance

Braun Series 3 3040 Wet and Dry Shaver is an excellent shaver and I highly recommend it to others. I don't tend to grow my facial out very long and this shaver is a very quick fix. Shaving was getting kind of tedious, but since I got the Braun Series 3 3040 Wet and Dry Shaver free from Bruan it's way easier.A few things I like about this shaver is that it doesn't pull on my facial hair like some other razors. It shouldn't hurt to shave, and with this it doesn't. Also, it's very fast. My time is valuable and I don't want to spend a lot of time everyday just to have a clean shaven face.In regards to the product itself, it's a perfect size and fits comfortably in my hand. It has a very vibrant blue grip and looks pretty sleek. The razors look as if they are high quality, although I am unsure what the actual specifics of them are. Overall, it's a clean and solid looking device. It has a pretty simplistic design and I appreciate that. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Lacks Quality

The product works to get started, but differently not finish a shave. It leaves spots, pulls hair, and is kind of rough. I was not impressed, nor would I recommend the product. Sad since I was excited once I found out I was chosen to test the product. Overall, a bad taste in my mouth with the brand. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
