Rasierer mit Olympia-Feeling – Braun Series 3 350CC

from 27. July to 12. August, held in London in the Summer Olympics. Ob Sprinter, Cyclists or swimmers: Who at the Olympic Games in London 2012 want to be fast on the road, relies on possible free of hair, characterized because the resistance drops. Everyone wants to give his best in the competition and win a medal possible. The company Braun nimmt das zum Anlass, already a sporty special edition of its „Series 3 350CC“-To launch shaver. This includes not only a suitably athletic packaging, but also a case made of genuine leather.

Shaving can be a daily ritual or a daily nuisance for a man, does decide this is usually the razor, used. As a convinced Nassrasierer I have the Braun Series 3 350CC tested and here is my review. The shaver is extremely handy and really quiet. The shaving is very gently and thoroughly. Skin irritation, I did not have to suffer in the course of the past few weeks. So I'm with the handling and comfort of this shaver ever satisfied. What I particularly important in a razor is, one hand is consistently good shaving and also the battery charging time, I often forget the device for charging einzusteckern.

Both agreed the Braun Series 3 350CC absolut. Mit dem Triple Action Free Float System, So a system, can capture more hairs in a Rasierzug inside of the shaving head in the independently operating the shaver three blades, falls the shaving time is much shorter than suspected, because there are far fewer trains needed to shave. The charging behavior of the Braun Series 3 350CC is further considered to be more than a positive, because in order 45 to shave minutes continuously, needs of the Braun Series 3 350CC only one hour of charging.

The shaver is via LEDs information on the charge status, the next cleaning and even when to change the best shaving system. And if you are on Travel is, where not logically be the cleaning station here has, The shaver can be cleaned under running water. In the Braun Series 3 350CC integrated trimmer also turned out to be positive, remove this is ideal to cut to sideburns or as stopping hair. Only in the chin area, the trimmer of the Braun Series 3 350show CC weaknesses.

The cleaning system seems at first glance a bit bulky and high-priced cartridges. The cleaning takes place automatically in the device, hardly the razor is inserted into the holder and pressed the button on the top, is the total cleaning without any intervention. The shaving head is rinsed, it runs sporadically razor. Everything is controlled by the cleaning kit. Since the stubble can be easily knocked out of shaving, I limit the cleaning operations on the necessary charging cycles, so that keeps the consumption of cleaning fluid in limits. Unless the warning light for the cleaning operation lights. At the front of the shaver has three light diodes, the state of charge in the normal use, a loading control and even the necessity of cleaning the apparatus show. A cleaning process takes approximately along with the drying of the head 4 Hours.


  • Ergonomische Form
  • Integrated Cleaning function
  • Cleaning cartridges are easily changed
  • Shaving head can be easily replaced
  • Carefully matched charging function
  • Great shave
  • Extensive accessories
  • Integrated land trimmer


  • Trimmer is in the chin- weaken and neck
  • Cleaning process may leave remnants of the liquid on the shaving head

Conclusion: Due to its ingenious shape and features, the Braun Series 3 350CC points personally with me. This Shavers both ease of cleaning, its excellent results as well as the short charging time. Of course, the Brown defeated Series 3 350CC not all the weaknesses of the razor-genres, but he comes very close to the optimum. Anyone looking for a good and truly quiet shaver, which is easy to clean inside and when required 5 Minutes can be charged, should be closer to the Braun Series 3 employ. Otherwise, I just noticed, that the Braun Series 3 350CC may have some trouble with a three-day beard in the chin and neck regions. At these points, then you have two to three times are nachrasiert, I felt as though this little negative, since this problem is widespread in the razor-genre far.

For every hair the right length – Braun CruZer Beard & Head

One was taken straight to the point, the Braun CruZer Beard & Head to what. Bart- and clippers, separately and combined, network dependent and battery powered, both cheap and from the mid-price range I've tried plenty during my now nearly two and a half decades of beard growth. I was really very satisfied so far with not only ones. Others have a sufficient sphere, cut but unclean or have an essay, of not properly engaged and sliding back at the slightest pressure and first mills a swath into the mat. The unit of Brown, however, is well made and with value and the essays lock securely into the selected cutting length, can, however, by a slight lateral pressure of the thumb and forefinger and adjust easily replace. The shave the beard is perfectly, the head hair it can particularly happen when very fine hair, that one or the other before the approaching blade cover goes and straightens again until, when the danger is over. But the second, later than the third attempt is then also the last quitter powerless.

But one question I had anticipated permits, why such a device may not simply Bart- and clippers hot, but New Denglisch „beard & head cruZer“? Probably the native speaker at the sight of this designation automatically sträubts Bart- and head hair, which then facilitates the subsequent procedure at least.

So far I have in my ca. 5 Years 3 x new cheap hair trimmer bought. After a short time they were always Defect, something is broken or ripped horribly by the hair. Not so the Braun Cruzer Beard & Head. The Cruzer was charged relatively quickly and functional. A flashing light indicates, whether it is still loaded or was if fully charged. I immediately started to shave and had to find, that the device works very precisely and is also surprisingly quiet! Other equipment such as lawn mowers sound partially, not as the Braun Cruzer. Since the case is not made of plastic, but hard rubber, Remember the hair initially sticking something on the device. This is a bit strange, but you can easily wash off after use. Similarly, you can open the blade up, both to wash under tap water, and of course to clean with the brush supplied. After repeated use, you should clean the blades with the supplied light oil, that is, these devices yes standard and usual.

With clips from 1 to 20 mm all possible lengths are adjusted almost infinitely. The essays are fixed tightly and not slip. The cutting quality is excellent, beard you can so quickly and thoroughly, to trim right under your nose, stand without the hair remained. The trimmer is also providing clean work on sideburns and agencies, requiring a Feintunig, and embarks without contortions- and extend. For each device, two articles are supplied, with which you can adjust various cutting lengths. One article is meant to be used for the beard, the other for the hair on the head. The supplied power cord is very long stretchy cord, What is also quite beneficial. but beware friends: When washing the blade should take the device from the power better. The unit as a whole is good and comfortable to hold. The battery capacity I have not checked with the stopwatch, however, corresponds approximately to the manufacturer's instructions. CruZer, Charger, Essays and Other accessories fit a little tight, but completely in the included travel bag.

The battery lasts after a full charge really very long and impressed me most, that the device has really Power, is very thorough, and will remain very very quiet! Overall a very good for processing and Technology, also a very good for shaving the beard and a good for short hair. The price / performance ratio will also receive a good and regular use, the cost should be amortized by saved haircuts after a few months. The included travel bag also like good. Here, everything can be stowed away neatly and is on Travel always on hand and wrapped up quickly.

the Braun Cruzer Beard & Head is a very convincing, handier and quieter trimmer with trimmer function. The workmanship is high quality. The styling is very withdrawn and color bit playful. He scores especially by the very precise trimming and styling problematic Bart games. The hair trimmer cuts the hair quickly, wherein the usual problem of the remaining hair remains in the cutting essays also forms in which Brown no exception. This problem can be solved but by the fast and easy cleaning. I have joy in my nines CruZer Brown Bear & Head and would give him not again! Only I would have instead of NiMH- desired lithium-ion batteries. Then, the apparatus would be probably become considerably more expensive. Beard styling can actually be fun, if the result is in accordance with. With this trimmer can not do a lot wrong. Real Beard shaper – Not for Kids.

  • Hair Clippers + Essays for different hair lengths

As a beast is a gentleman – Braun Series 5 550CC

Razor sharp – I mean, dass eine Rasur mit dem Braun Series 5 Model 550cc as thoroughly fails as with the razor. Actually, I have so far preferred the wet shave and also often times wearing a three-day beard and if the whiskers are slightly longer, would naturally so an electric shaver not bad. Depending on the length of your beard I just want to at home a choice between wet- have and dry shaving. Shaving is not one of my hobbies, compared with a beard, it is but then the lesser evil. Jeden Morgen setzen manner alles daran, carefully and time consuming to remove the stubble on his face, and now want to write about my experience times.

I shave only, if I have to work or we go to a celebration or night out. Otherwise, the weekend is time rasierfreie. Consequently, he has to do on Monday morning much. Although I have Monday but then again go over it, but the result is still very good. My skin is smooth and no hair is more to it. If I'm on vacation, then it may be, that rasierfreie time still extends over more days, I then fill it up again. Only then the trimmer is set and then shaved even with the shaving head.

I am with the performance of the Braun Series 5 Shaver relatively satisfied. In light beard approach he is super: With one swing, all hair removed, I feel no pull or „pluck“. The device adapts due to the movable shaving head perfectly to my skin. Are the whiskers but a little longer, I have several times to the shaving head on one point- reciprocate. In my opinion, the razor comes here unfortunately quickly reached its limits. With a full battery I shave about 35 to 40 times 6-7 Minutes and can only confirm what the manufacturer.

The unit fits comfortably in the hand and the slide switch can be easily operated with the thumb. The stage 1 is the position with free-swinging shaving head; I use for chin and neck; in step 2 the shaving head is not quite as agile and is best suited for the cheeks; for the area between the upper lip and nose I set the stage 3 a, wherein the shaving head is rigidly. On the back of the device is the slide switch on the trimmer, you need that on the sideburns or other bearded trouble.

Another reason, of the Braun Series 5 Shaver says, is its washability. After using the foil or you can. remove the part with the 3-fold-shear system and clean it in water. You can also forward the entire razor Rinse under water and thereby save a bath in the cleaning solution.

The shaver is black and has an ergonomic shape, so that a pleasant and good grip is guaranteed. A blue light provides information on the state of charge of the shaver. Attractive appearance, looks very elegant and modern. I personally find processed device perfectly. It is in very good shape and weight in the hand.

The new razor Braun 550cc Series 5 was produced by the company Braun GmbH and has a shaving foil with OptiFoil, which whiskers better detected even in difficult areas of the face such as the chin or neck and hair of different growth directions, and closer to the skin cuts. For two zones provide with different sized openings. Ein patentiertes Active Lift System, the integrated cutter directed by micro oscillating movement includes tight hair in problem areas like the neck and under the chin. In connection with his flexible precision shaving head that provides a smooth finish. The?? 3-Stage Cutting System, which recorded double foil with integrated cutter longer whiskers and beard shaved gradually thorough. The first foil shaves short hair, the integral cutter shortens longer hairs, which are then also shaved thoroughly by the second foil. ?? And Cleaning- and care system, das Clean & Renew System Braun is an all-rounder: It cleans, cultivates, dried and automatically loads the razor at your fingertips. Purification alcohol-based liquid ensures hygienic cleanliness and oils contained maintain the shaving parts. Thus, the shaver feels every day like new. Rotating handle and sealed.

Although I was skeptical at first, the purification of this shaver is an absolute hit. The Clean&Renew System cleans, cultivates, dries and charges the shaver to automatically pushing a button on. He feels like new, every day and the child's! For this purpose you put the razor just „headfirst“ in the cleaning system, and presses the start button – that's it. The next time I shave every actually feel to use a new razor. With me holding a cleaning cartridge ca. 6-8 Week. I use the cleaning-system but not after every shave, because the cartridges are not cheap.

Smart Foil means, that there are special shaving foils, Remove the beard, which grow in different directions. This gives a clean result. Power Comb is the active integrated cutter. It lies midway between the two shaving foils. Grow facial hair very closely, they are erected and thus cut.

The 3-way cutting system includes two shaving foils on each edge of the cutter head and an integrated cutter in the middle. The shaving head is flexible and shaved chin Sun- and neck perfectly. But he can not be tilted sideways. That you have to still make yourself.

A successful Shaver, I can only recommend. A class-shaver, which ensures really thoroughly and carefully the finer hairs on the neck removed and a smooth skin. I am completely satisfied with this shaver, not only because of the thoroughness, with which he shaved, but also because of the ease of use. Many say yes, a wet shave is much more thorough – I do not agree necessarily. For if I in dry shaving aufwende as much time, as in the wet shave, is it as thoroughly. Overall I am very satisfied. The cleaning cartridges are not very expensive and you have to clean it as often as not, since rinsing also helps very well. I like it, when the razor is clean. Since the shaving makes equal more fun. If we use him, it can be in the cleaning- and charging plug. The only disadvantage is, that they state on the cabinet is dusty, and be wiped from time to time.

It is also advantageous, that the batteries last a long time and you have complete freedom of movement while shaving. According to the manufacturer extends a battery charge for about. 50 Shaving minutes. In my experience, that comes out about, depends, of course, how thoroughly you approach each shave. The charging takes time for a complete charging 1 Hour. If you ever forget charging, there are also the so-called 5-minute quick charge, at least sufficient again for a couple of shaves.

Nothing for „real“ manner? – Gillette Fusion Gamer und Gillette Skin Care

Now I can for the third time here in the crypt in a small test „offizieller Braun Tester“ publish. Dieses Mal habe ich ein Paket mit einem Gillette Get Fusion and Gillette Gamer Skin Care, According to the manufacturer, which is in perfect harmony with the Gillette wet shaving and shaving gels. But besides Vewirrung, something Geschrubbe and balm for me in the matter not wrest really new, so the shave is hardly a new experience.

Gillette Fusion GamerFor several days now, I use the resulting products, so I feel it actually enabled me, here to carve this review in the crypt. Said the whole package consists of:

  • 1 Tube Cleaning Gel Gillette
  • 1 Tube Gillette Peeling
  • 1 Can shave for sensitive skin

for use before shaving and after

  • 1 Tube Gillette Aftershave Balsam mit Aloe Vera
  • 1 Tube moisturizer
  • 1 Tube Aftershave Gel
  • 1 Tube Aftershave Balsam

In addition there was a razor Gillette Fusion Gamer with five blades and battery-operated vibrator, where I actually no difference to the already tested by me Gillette Fusion Phenom Power found, except that he is white. As stated at the time, I wonder always more, what to look for in a vibrator Shaver? The part I had then set aside, there with me simply any vibration shaving more of a hindrance, is conducive. It's enough for me every morning with barely open eyes, my tolpatischen hands to keep in check with such actions :)

So I turned off the Vibi and yet also must note here, that the thing, respectively of the handle is a little too clunky to me – Logical, since the battery is indeed the great Vibra function inside – and so I have returned to the Gillette Fusion Phenom resorted, the shaved anyway even without Gezittere – that will come of itself soon enough – immaculately. – Where I have to admit, that five blades not really achieve a better result than two, because in the meantime I have the price of more than 40 Franken spared, for five klingigen Phenom and so to the proven sensor from the same manufacturer back. Since the blades are even afterexpensive, but still only about half of the price of this test shaver. Who would like to read more on my test the razor, I refer to my posting „Get rid of the beard – Gillette Fusion Phenom„. The Gillette shaving gel I've always pleasant and I actually use anyway. What will be new in this version, I can not really say – but since I'm probably just too little competent, To assess this. Fits scho.

Gillette Forscher?Now comes the moment, there was little draven classify but a little overwhelmed arg, which Tuebchen when to apply… For Gillette has with divine foresight the tubes practically identical designed, Although slightly different size, but looks like graphically virtually identical and therefore hardly be distinguished from each other at first sight. damage, there has been in the marketing department of Gillette not a monument and I rate but strongly encouraged, if you have already launched such products, the Tübchendesign possible for something in manner praktisches, to choose the morning Dämmerfrühschlaf-to-the-eye slits-out-peep Design, otherwise the Tuebchen put quickly on dust. For no man is doing to look up every morning this time, what it says where, an. I do not at least. Probably but I simply did not correspond to the average man of the researchers at Gillette, which for decades Knowledge have collected and say of himself „We know the needs of male skin. Finally, we have been more than 100 Years with this topic. Today shave every day almost 600 Millions of men with our products – this trust we are proud.“ That also, was motzt da Kleen Draven rum? 600 Millions can not be wrong – or use the rather for ages launched by Gillette razors and shaving gels, as the newly thrown onto the market Sälbchen? – I ask too much…

The cleansing gel before shaving to remove dirt and excess sebum, so that nothing can affect a close shave. Therefore, no soap, and thus does not contain the skin dry. The cleansing does not fit me personally really. I do not like, if after washing the feeling, ne thick layer of foam insulation on the cheeks to have. The peeling away with its microbeads – it feels on the skin like a fine sandpaper to – gently the sebum and dead skin cells, thus ensures a fresh complexion and really left a very pleasant feeling of thorough cleaning.

To after shaving I must warn, I basically no creams, Ointments and the like may, the left feel, does not collect in the skin and to occupy a slippery, creamy „Protective layer“ form. Bruuäääh * shake * For this reason, only left the Gillette Series After Shave Gel a reasonably satisfactory impression, in all other creams I did not like this very said feeling a cream. But I guess I just did not correspond to the average man of the researchers at Gillette, which have accumulated over decades of knowledge…

Gillette Skin CareAccording to the producer to the Gillette Series Moisturizer with aloe vera reduce the feeling of tension after shaving and quickly move in and not to fat. Yes fat and tuts, what else other a moisturizer? The Gillette Series Moisturiser with SPF 15 protects against UV rays and the consequent aging of the skin. Again, I'm just saying: Moisturizer! The Gillette Series After Shave Balm to soothe the skin after shaving, quickly move in and intensive moisture Donate. Especially the latter did not fit me here. The last product is the Gillette Series After Shave Gel. This gel is quickly absorbed by the skin and lubricates (Finally) definitely not for. It cools and soothes the skin, thus ensuring a I entered the feeling of freshness.

Conclusion: Vibration does nothing, The razor itself is actually just visually interesting, there just too expensive to maintain. The shaving gel fits scho, as always, and the whole collection tubes – Cleaning products are from Fr. 6.50 and toiletries from Fr. 7.60 available – is rather what for „modern“ Man, who has the bathroom anyway already crammed with cream pot, week of Brown bodycruZer Whole body shaved Front (My test this way Here) and every morning for an hour in the bathroom is, wegzuretuschieren all the corners and edges. From my perspective, this is nothing for real men, say real men, but the scent is very refreshing and I probably did not correspond simply to the average man of the researchers at Gillette, which have accumulated over decades of knowledge… :)

Men are hairy – Braun bodycruZer

the Advertising tried us men always to provide more, that a beautiful male body will be shaved, so that man really well received by the fair sex. For me it was never really comprehensible, since this is an attempt, more or less talented marketing strategists from my perspective, to open up new sales channels and arouse desires unknown to date. Entha kinds Männerkörper – a trend?!

Somehow I inevitably come folded up toilets glasses to mind, and the drama, which some women organize around this issue, while we could manner dieses Gezeter auch veranstalten und darauf beharren, that the glasses must always be folded up. But what does not do anything to the peace Love. Obviously now just a full body shave.


The older man is, be for many the hair on the head less and less, it begin in the most unlikely places on the body hair to sprout. Unfairly men have to fight for the achievement of the current ideal of beauty with two obstacles over Women: With more and much longer body hair in addition difficult to reach regions. So if you decide to be a man for the body grooming, might as well book a yoga class, because without bone-breaking generic contortions, is not a completely satisfactory result possible. Or how will man otherwise reach hair on the back with the unit and get rid? Luckily, I'm not on his back nor as hairy as Cousin Itt from the Addams Family.

Now I can already a unit test of Brown second time, which allows me, remove annoying body hair. This time it is a combination of Gillette Fusion Phenom (thus no different blade types are needed) and elekrischem precision trimmer and means „Braun bodycruZer“.


The bodycruZer is adjustable in three steps: For a man can only trim (Cutting Hair). In the second stage, it is possible to combine trim and shave, and last but not least in the third step can only man shaving. Thus, depilation is quite speedy and skin with longer hair can be smoothed over in one step. Multiple trimming attachments (sensitive, medium and long) lop different hair lengths and make a smooth shave in sensitive areas of the body to. The device is waterproof and can therefore be used directly when showering or bathing. The operation is extremely simple and practical.

According to the manual is Brown bodycruZer not to remove Bart- suitable and scalp hair. The device is powered by a battery, which can be easily charged in the supplied charging station. Result after shaving: ok To my mind, but for me the device itself is not too often be used, I said as the whole point is not really one before and neither float nor poisoners am ambitious cyclist and I am not quite depilated for this test. This is perhaps for this reason, I already could listen for a certain completely depilated area comparisons with Kalbsbratwurst…

The device is for CHF 95.00 available in the stores.

Get rid of the beard – Gillette Fusion Phenom

Glatt geshaved, I can imagine the first time on my blog a little test products. I was able to test Gillette Fusion Phenom, Gillette Fusion Phenom Power and Series Sensitive Skin shaving gel and have to say, clean result. But what the Computer the printer – where supplies, as print cartridges are outrageously expensive – is at the Gillette razor blade.

For background music of my first little test overview „offizieller Braun Tester“ I recommend the following Music play :)

The doctors-3 day beard
Phenom und Phenom Power

earlier, bus so knapp 20 I have always asked where the difference, should be between a disposable razor and Gillette razors and so carved one with the yellow Bic razors to Flaum Beard from his face. The time went by, and soon had one was allowed into the recruit school and then received in celebration of the week staying a little present, including the Gillette Sensor shaving gel and wow, that device was like the discovery of fire and the wheel together, compared to my BiC scraper. Striking difference! So I used to date the Gillette Mach 3, I was so far very satisfied with this shaver. Now I get the Gillette Fusion Phenom and behold, how could you shave ever so optimize! The pure shave is really the hammer and even the Gillette Fusion Phenom Power – A razor that vibrates gently and somehow reminded me anything, as a razor, thus initially used reluctantly by me – was an extremely pleasant experience.

With the five-blade shaving surface on the front, the five blades are finished with a uniformly thin coating telomere and the razor is resiliently mounted shaving a real pleasure! The pressure is reduced when shaving and the result is a very gentle and comfortable shave. It adapts to the contours of the face and glides smoothly over any imperfections, curvature, Chin etc and caught absolutely every Häarchen.

Series Gel Sensitive Skin

I had less joy of each blade on the back of the razor, to the intersect easy and precise sideburns or leave style beard contours. clear, is for the fine work the five-blade shaving surface fall too big, but with this single blade can be no clean and precise result in the contours achieve and yet I have on my old Mach 3 fall back. damage!

Also, the handle has been optimized and is designed, that the shaver can simply call. With the improved rubber profile of the shaver is particularly secure in hand - even when shaving against the grain. The shaver is also the Indicator Lubrastrip, a moisture band with vitamin E, Aloe Vera and natural oils, equipped, which fades a little more with every shave from blue to white, and thus provides a clear indication, to be changed when the razor must. Together with the Series Sensitive Skin Shaving Gel gives a perfect shave, smooth and clean, and the face feels after like a baby Po. Good product and a brilliant result! If only the contours better – perhaps with 2 Kingen – would be solved…
