Braun Series 5-565cc Men’s Shaving System

If you like the convenience of having a men’s shaver and a cleaning and charging station, but not the high cost, the Braun Series 5-565cc men’s shaver system is worth having a second look at. The Braun is a foil style men’s shaver with a black easy grip plastic casing. It has finger indentations in it to make it easier to hold.

The on/off switch on the Braun shaver is a blue and black circular button on the front middle of the device.

This men’s Braun shaver is built with ActiveLift technology. Most men have pesky hairs that lay flat against the skin and can resist most brands of electric shavers. But with this special technology, the shaver’s blades will gently lift up these troublesome hairs, and then snip them off effectively, all in one pass. Problem areas will be a thing of the past.

The foil shaver head of the Braun Series 5-565cc is also contour adaptive, so it will shave a man’s face, jawline, and chin region effectively, no matter the angles.

The blades within the foil of the Braun Series 5-565cc shaver feature a triple action cutting system—each set shaves progressively closer to the skin. It will only take one pass to shave effectively. The final Optifoil blades will give you the best and closest shave ever.

The cleaning and charging station takes clean and renew refills. These are made from denatured alcohol, which is perfect for disinfecting the head of the shaver, killing bacteria, and ensuring that you don’t get any facial infections from shaving that can cause redness and irritation.

There are also three different cleaning programs on the unit, so you can choose exactly which one you need, whether you just need more power, or you need to fully clean it.

If you’ve forgotten to charge your shaver up the morning before, the quick five minute charge feature will give you enough power for one morning shave.
