A man in the market for a new electric shaver is going to want to know a few key things: these being 1. How close is it going to shave? 2. Will the shaver be kind to his skin? and 3. How does the shaver compare with other comparable models in terms of price and quality? This article will look at the Braun 790cc Electric Shaver and how it delivers on each of these key factors.

The Braun Series 7 790cc shaver uses pulsonic technology which sends or "pulses" over 10,000 micro-vibrations per minute through the shaver head to gently stimulate the skin. This causes your skin to gently ripple with the resulting effect being that more of your facial hair is captured and shaved with every stroke. It also incorporates a sensitive flexing head, which follows the contours of your face with twice the pivoting angle of other Braun shavers. Hard-to-reach areas are more easily got at using touch sensitive foils that respond to the slightest change in skin surface. The end result of all this whiz-bang technology? - the closest shave possible with an electric shaver.

Facial skin that is red, raw and pimply is frankly a bad look, yet this is exactly the look that a lot of guys sport due to using inferior shaving implements. The Braun 790cc shaver uses the internationally acclaimed Gillette blade technology - a technology so effective and unique that it is patented. The effectiveness of the blade used by the Braun 790cc shaver is proved in its single stroke action that leaves the skin feeling incredibly smooth. You experience no pauses or obstacles during each shaving stroke and this smooth action results in your skin remaining unbroken and rash free.

In conducting my own research, I compared the Braun 790cc with both the Remoington and Phillips Electric shavers.

The Phillips shaver uses a rotary blade as opposed to the foil blade used by the Braun. The common consensus gathered from my research was that men who didn't have to shave regularly preferred to use a rotary blade. The quietness of the Phillips shaver seemed to be one of the standout features that was remarked upon by all its users, however opinion was very mixed when it came to how close a shave you could get from the Phillips shaver.

I was tempted by the Remington shaver as it is no doubt cheaper than the Braun 790cc but it is actually a relatively noisy shaver and it doesn't have a base for cleansing. It has a pop up trimmer with three positions but a lot of user feedback that I came across found this feature to be way too cumbersome.

After taking all into consideration I ended up going with the Braun Series 7 790cc shaver. My skin remains smooth and healthy, and the shaver continues to be a cinch to use and clean.


The search to find the best value-for-money electric shaver was something that I took quite a bit of time over and I'm very happy with my decision to go with the Braun Series 7 790cc shaver. To read my full Braun 790cc review go to
