Poor quality foils make this product worthless!
I am not the type of person to leave a review…. ever – and let alone a negative one. But I feel the need to warn people that purchase of this product is an enormous waste of money. I paid $AU 275 for what I thought would be a fairly high-end shaver which would last for years and justify the price tag. The reality: it’s not even lasted a year. The slide-out ‘precision trimmer’ has the precision of a defunct lawn mower and will leave your sideburns as uneven as an alien’s forehead. The biggest problem however is the foil, which will be in need of...replacement within weeks. I am on my second foil in 10 months and found that (whether shaving wet or dry) within a matter of days they start cutting your skin, and in a matter of weeks, they feel rough and worn. You are not able to return the product since the company's returns policy excludes any issues with the foil (and at a cost of $45, the replacements don’t come cheap). At a time when the EU is attempting to encourage longer product lifespan (to stop us senselessly throwing products away), Braun have spectacularly managed to reverse-engineer their foils into disposable junk in order to better line their pockets. Shame on them for trashing what used to be a badge of quality – “Made in Germany” – and abandoning shavers that were formerly of an impeccable standard (as I know from using their older models).
