I have very sensitive skin and can not use a manual razor. My last electric razor gave me a decent shave, but I would get bumps. I bought this braun because of its sleek look. It is bigger than my last shaver, but it works so much better. I can get a close shave, without the bumps and irritation.
I like that the shaver has a self cleaning feature. I also like the scent of the cleaner, it's lemony. The downside is that I have to buy replacement cartridges for the self cleaning, but I can get a 2 pack at Target for about $11. I have to replace the cleaner about once a month. Another thing I don't like is that when it cleans, it is very noisy.
I also like that the shaver has 3 positions. If I want the head to pivot, I use position 1, I can lock it in place on position 2, and the sideburn trimmer is position 3, which I also use for the back of my neck.
