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, focuses on possible hair free, characterized because the resistance drops. Everyone wants to give his best in the race and win as a medal. 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 represent a daily ritual for a man or a daily annoyance, does decide this is usually the razor, used. As a staunch razor I have the Braun Series 3 350CC tested and here is my review. The shaver is extremely handy and really quiet. The shave is very gently and thoroughly. Skin irritation I have not in the course of the past weeks have suffered. 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, because I often forget to charge the device einzusteckern.

Both agreed the Braun Series 3 350CC absolut. Mit dem Triple Action Free Float System, So a system, in which the razor three independently operating within the shear blades can capture more hair in a head Rasierzug, is much shorter than the shaving of suspects, because it requires significantly less trains to shave. The charging behavior of the Braun Series 3 350CC is further considered to be more than a positive, because in order 45 Shave minutes continuously to, needs of the Braun Series 3 350CC only one hour of charging.

The shaver is about LED's indicate the charging 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, To remove this ideal to be reduced by as stopping hair or sideburns. Only in the chin area, the trimmer of the Braun Series 3 350CC show weaknesses.

The cleaning system seems at first glance a bit bulky and high-priced cartridges. The cleaning in the device automatically, hardly the razor is inserted into the holder and the button is pressed on the top, is the total cleaning without any intervention. The razor head is rinsed, thereby also occasionally runs the razor. Everything is controlled by the cleaning kit. As the stubble can be tapped easily from shaving, I will limit the cleaning operations on the required cycles, so that the consumption of cleaning fluid within limits. Unless the warning light comes on for the cleaning process. 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 together 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
  • Wide range of accessories
  • Integrated land trimmer


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

Conclusion: Due to its ingenious shape and features, the Braun Series 3 350CC points with me personally. This Men's Shaver boasts a simple cleaning, its excellent results as well as the short charging time. Of course, defeated the Braun Series 3 350CC not all 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 know more about 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, mains and battery powered, both cheap and from the mid-price range I have tried throughout my now nine and a half decades of abundant 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, the not lock correctly and at the slightest pressure from slipping back and at first a swath cut into the mat. The unit of Brown, however, is solid and processed with value and the attachments lock firmly 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, no later than the third attempt then is also the last quitter powerless.

But one question I had anticipated permits, why such a device may not simply beard- and clippers hot, but New Denglisch „beard & head cruZer“? Probably sträubts the native speaker when you see this name automatically beard- 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 malfunction, something is broken or ripped horribly by the hair. Not so the Braun Cruzer Beard & Head. The Cruzer was charged relatively fast and functional. A flashing light indicates, whether it is still loaded or whether fully loaded. 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 housing is not made of plastic, but hard rubber, keep the hair by 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 included brush. After repeated use, you should clean the blades with the included light oil, yes that is standard for this equipment and common.

With clips from 1 to 20 mm all possible lengths can be adjusted almost infinitely. The essays are tightly fixed and do not slip. The cutting quality is excellent, the beard you can as 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 essays included, with which you can adjust the various cutting lengths. One essay is meant 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 quite a long time after full charge and most impresses me, that the device really has power, is very thorough and very very quiet remains! Overall a very good technique for processing and, also very good for the shave the beard and a well for short hair. The price / performance ratio will also receive a good and with regular use should after a few months, the cost savings have paid for itself by the hairdresser. The included travel pouch like good. Here, everything can be neatly stowed away 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 playful little color. He score with the very precise trimming and styling beard problematic areas. The hair clipper shortens the hair quickly, the usual problem of the remaining residues in the hair cutting attachments is also no exception in the Brown. This problem can be solved but by the fast and easy cleaning. I have joy in my nines CruZer Brown Bear & Head and would not give it back! Only I would have instead of NiMH- Lithium-ion batteries required. Then the apparatus but would probably become 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.

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

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

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 to Mondays but then again hover, 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, rasierfreie that time still extends over more days, I then fill it up again. Only then will the trimmer set and subsequently shaved with 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 unit fits perfectly on the basis of the moving cutter head on to my skin. Are the hairs somewhat 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 therefore confirm that the manufacturer only.

The device can sits well in the hand and the slide switch is easy to operate with your thumb. The stage 1 is the position with free-swinging shaving head; I use the chin and neck; in step 2 is the shaving head 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 you can find the switch for 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 rinse the whole razor forward underwater and thus save a bath in the cleaning solution.

The shaver is black and has an ergonomic shape, so that a comfortable and good grip is ensured. A blue light indicates the charging status of the shaver. Beautiful look, looks very elegant and modern. Personally, I find the unit a perfect finish. It is in very good shape and weight in the hand.

The new razor Braun 550cc Series 5 was manufactured by Braun GmbH and has a foil with OptiFoil, what facial hair cuts even in difficult areas of the face such as the chin or neck and hair of different growth directions better recorded and closer to the skin. Are 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 conjunction with its flexible Prà ¤ PRECISION shaving head for the r ensures a smooth result. Dasa "3-way cutting system, which recorded double foil with an integrated cutter Longer beard and shaved stubble progressively green ndlicher. The first foil shaves short hair, the integrated cutter kà ¼ rzt Longer Hair, then the second of the foil also be shaved green Spoken.  "And the cleaning- and care system, das Clean & Renew system from Braun is a Alleskà men ¶: It cleans, cultivates, and dries the shaver là ¤ dt automatically selected. A Reinigungsflà ¼ permeability alcohol-based provides for hygienic cleanliness and r contained Oils maintain the shaving parts. Thus, for the razor itself hlt daily on how to re-. 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 is automatically at the touch. He feels like new, every day and the child's! For this purpose you put the razor just „headfirst“ in the cleaning system, and press the Start button – that's it. The next time I shave every time actually feel to use a new razor. In my case holds approximately a cleaning cartridge. 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. It can not topple sideways. That you have to still make yourself.

A successful Shaver, I can only recommend. A class-shaver, which provides really thoroughly and carefully the finer hairs on the neck and removed for 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 by dry shaving as much time aufwende, as in the wet shave, is it the same thorough. Overall I am very satisfied. The cleaning cartridges are not very expensive and you have to clean it as often as not, because that also helps rinse 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, one battery charge is sufficient for approximately. 50 Shaving minutes. In my experience it comes down approximately, of course, depends, thoroughly as you approach each shave. The charging time for a complete charging takes 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“ Men? – 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 is nothing really new in the matter wrest, so the shave is hardly a new experience.

Gillette Fusion GamerFor several days now, I use the resulting products, so I still feel capable of actually, 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 shaving gel 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

There was a Gillette Fusion Gamer razor with five blades and battery-powered 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, tolpatischen my hands to keep it 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, there is is great for the vibration function inside the battery – 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 can not really achieve a better result than two, because in the meantime I have the price of about 40 Franken spared, for the five klingigen Phenom and so resorted to the proven sensor from the same company back. Since the blades are even afterexpensive, but still only about half the price of this test razor. Whoever therefore wants 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, in order to assess this. Fits scho.

Gillette Forscher?Now comes the moment, there was little Draven classified but a little badly overstretched, Tuebchen which should be applied when… Because Gillette with divine vision, the tubes designed practically, 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, das Tübchendesign möglichst in etwas für Men praktisches, in the morning to choose Dämmerfrühschlaf-to-the-eyes-out-a-boo style slots, otherwise the Tuebchen set fairly quickly to 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 about the needs of male skin. Finally, we have been working for more than 100 Years with this topic. Today shave almost daily 600 Millions of men with our products – this trust we are proud.“ That also, was motzt da Kleen Draven rum? 600 Million can not be wrong – or use the rather for ages launched by Gillette razors and shaving gels, as the newly thrown on the market Sälbchen? – I ask too much…

The cleansing gel before shaving to remove dirt and excess sebum, so that nothing can interfere with a close shave. Therefore, no soap, and thus does not contain the skin dry. The cleansing gel does not fit me personally really. I do not like, if one has the feeling after rinsing, 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 – gently the sebum and dead skin cells, offers another fresh skin, leaving a really pleasant feeling of thorough cleaning.

To after shaving I must warn, I basically put any cream, Ointments and the like may, The left feeling, 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, For 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 manufacturer to reduce the Gillette Series Moisturiser with Aloe Vera the feeling of tightness after shaving and move quickly 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. 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 suit 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 and offers another company is fresh feeling.

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 – but is rather for the „modern“ Man, has cluttered the bathroom anyway with cream pot, week of Braun bodycruZer Body grooming indulges (my way to test 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, ie 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 tries to make us men always to provide more, that a beautiful male body wants to be shaved, so that man really well received by the fair sex. For me it was never really understand, since this is an attempt, more or less talented marketing strategists from my perspective, to open up new sales channels and awaken hitherto unknown desires. Hairless male bodies – a trend?!

Somehow I inevitably come folded up toilets glasses to mind, and the drama, which some women organize around this issue, dabei könnten wir Men dieses Gezeter auch veranstalten und darauf beharren, that the glasses must always be folded up. But what does not do anything to the peace dear. Apparently now even a full body shave.


The older man is, be for many the hair on the head less and less, to begin in the most unlikely places on the body hair to sprout. Unfairly, the men have to fight them in achieving the current beauty ideal with two obstacles more than Women: With more and much longer body hair in addition, hard to reach areas. So anyone who chooses a man for body grooming, might as well book a yoga class, because without bone-breaking generic contortions, is not a completely satisfactory result possible. Or how does man reach otherwise hair on the back of the device and get rid of? Luckily I'm not on the back nor so much as hairy Cousin Itt from the Addams Family.

Now I can already the second time a unit test of Brown, which allows me, remove annoying body hair. This time it is a combination of Gillette Fusion Phenom (thus are not different types of blades required) elekrischem and 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 and trim and shave last but not least is in the third stage only man shaving. Thus, a depilation rather quickly and areas with longer hair can be smooth in one step. Different trim attachments (sensitive, medium and long) clip different hair lengths and allow for a smooth shave in sensitive areas of the body. The unit is waterproof and can be used directly when showering or bathing. Operation is extremely simple and convenient.

According to the instructions of the Braun bodycruZer is not to remove beard- suitable and scalp hair. The device is powered by a rechargeable battery, which can be charged easily in the included charger. Result after shaving: Ok for my terms, but for me, the device itself is not too often are used, I said as the whole point is not really one before and neither float nor poisoners ambitious cyclists and I'm also for this test is not completely hairless. This is perhaps for this reason, I could already listen to some completely depilated area comparisons with Bratwurst…

The device is available for CHF 95.00 available in 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, such 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 could be in the recruit school and then received to celebrate the week by holding a small gift, including the Gillette Sensor shaving gel and wow, device that was like the discovery of fire and wheel together, compared to my BiC scraper. Striking difference! So I used to date the Gillette Mach 3, I was with this shaver until now extremely satisfied. 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 and the telomere is resiliently mounted razor shave a real treat! 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 every bump, Curvature, Chin etc and caught absolutely every Häarchen.

Series Gel Sensitive Skin

Less joy I had on the single blade on the back of the razor, should be cut with the easy and precise style sideburns, beard contours can. Clear, for detailed work is the five-blade shaving surface get too big, But with this single blade can be achieved no clear and precise results in the contours, and so I still have my old Mach 3 fall back. Damage!

Also, the handle has been optimized and is designed, that turn the shaver can be simply. With the improved rubber profile of the razor is very secure in the 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 at every shave a little more from blue to white fade 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 like a baby after that Po. Good product and a brilliant result! If only the contours better – perhaps with 2 Kingen – were dissolved…

The Gillette Fusion Phenom is commercially available at the following prices:

Gillette Fusion Phenom with two blades CHF 19.90
Gillette Fusion Power Phenom with a blade CHF 25.40
