Rated 5 out of 5Â by byoung84 nice clean shave
I was really looking forward to receiving this bzz and I was not disappointed. The packaging was bold and clean however the colour of the writing made it difficult to see what was in English. The razor charged well and kept its charge even if I hadn't used it for a few days. It was easy to use with a good grip and glided over my skin easily with no snagging. When I first used it I took off my goatee beard and the results were as if id had a professional cut throat shave. I was very very impressed. I have since then used it to keep my goatee very neat. I have enjoyed using this product and look forward to using it again and again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Rated 5 out of 5Â by link306 The cruZer5 clean shave - works well on fine hair
I have the opinion that shaving should feel comfortable as possible with no irritation to the skin afterwards.
I'm not the hairiest guy around and the hair I do have is fine. But even after 3 days growth (using the standard blade not the trimmer) it didn't pull at hairs which can sometimes be painful. I found it left a clean shave every time I used it. Also, using it everyday didn't leave me with a raised or red shaved area which can often happen when using a razor regularly or when in a hurry.
The trimmer this seems to be the standard with BRAUN shavers and doesn't really feel different, or give a better or a more even cut compared to others. Still, it is no way bad and it does the job when you want to be precise or leave some stubble. If your beard gets too long for the blade the trimmer could be used to shorten it first.
The razor itself fits nicely in your hand and the head pulls off easily when you want to clean it. The shape of it isn't different to older models and the only noticeable visual difference is the + and - buttons as opposed to the green and red boxes of old. Mine lasted 10 shaves before I had to charge the battery and one thing I did like, was that it had a universal BRAUN charger. This meant I could use it with a previous charging stand I have for an older BRAUN razor and not have it lying down. It is a shame it didn't come with a charging stand but different units may have different things included so it may be available, mine just didn't.
Overall, I found that the cruZer5 clean shave was easy to use and left me with a close shave. It is easy and comfortable to use and the battery life is good. I am happy to use this razor everyday. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I have been using the razor for the last 3 weeks to get a better understanding of what it is capable of for daily use. It is great for a standard shave but not too brilliant for a really close shave. The attachment is great for getting rid of a coarse beard and the standard shaving head deals with 1-2 days growth very well but without making your face amazingly smooth.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by rilowther Bearded Gent and the Braun cruZer5
It was great to receive this product. Packaging looks good, clean and sharp. The pack contains all the kit that you would expect to find in an electric shaver, including the European plug - so off to the bits draw to find the adapter.
Not being a regular electric shaver user and a beard wearer I was interested to see what this piece of kit could do. So I started by trying it on my neck, the place I usually shave and the hair was a bit too long for the shaver to deal with so I decided to give the trimmer to a go to try and shorten my neck hair first. It coped well but the precision wasn't as precise as I would have liked due to its size. I then decided to shave to see how the cruzer coped with what was essentially a few days growth. The shave was good, but not quite as close as I hoped. It seems that no matter what angle or direction I moved the shaver at it seemed to leave a few hairs, but there was no irritation from all of my trying! I guess for most guys who share more often than I, this would have produced a nice clean shave.
The advantage of this product is the speed and ease of use in comparison to a regular wet shave. Would be perfect for a weekend away or for having a quick freshen up on the move as its compact but powerful.
Overall Braun have done a great job with this product and I would happily recommend it to my mates if they were looking for an upgrade. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Rated 4 out of 5Â by dazza006 different!
ok so I have to admit I am a bit of a hairy wolf with very coarse facial hair so I was a bit worried that the cruzer would not be able to compete like my other expensive shaver does but when I actually used it I was pleasently suprised! Not only did it manage to actually shave the hairs but it also didn't pull on the hairs unlike other shavers I have tried in the past! There was one down side to it, I felt that it was quite tricky around the jaw line as it wasn't really manuvorable so was hard to reach in some places and I found myself manipulating the skin so it could get the hairs properly. I have a twin brother who is just as hairy as me lol so I told him to try it out also as his facial hair is not quite as coarse as mine. so he took it home. The next day he returned with the shaver and a face like a babies bum! I asked him what his honest opinions were and he said he really liked it and that his other shaver was on the way out so could he pinch this one off me! the cheek of it! I asked him if it pulled at the hairs or he found it hard to reach under the jaw? he said it never pulled at all and the jaw was a piece of cake, so I guess I must have a big chin! he also said he loved the design as it was very stylish. so overall all a great product for twin brothers!!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Gavalar90 Not quite the clean shave
Upon first look, the shaver looks and feels great, however there's no brittish plug, I appreciate that this is common practice with shavers. It doesn't provide the cleanest of shaves in most places it leaves clumps of hair, which it will not shave off even after multiple attempts, I would score this shaver 5/10 as there I'm sure much better value for money shavers which do the job they state.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Gavwatts Not great on coarse beards...
I've been testing the Braun Cruzer Clean Shave for a little while now, it's promises to provide a clean shave even on three day beards. I have quite coarse stubble which tends to grow very quickly and I also have quite sensitive skin which is prone to razor burn so tend to wet shave normally.
I was rather apprehensive about using this dry as I was worried it would cause a lot of spots, however, Im pleased to say that it didn't. It did a great job of providing a very clean shave where it actually managed to cut my beard, much better than wet shaving with a razor. However it left it very patchy in some places and had to be finished off with a wet shave.
I would not recommend this product for coarse or heavy stubble, it works ok on light stubble though. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
