One of the biggest complaints that men have who use electric razors is the fact that the shave is never as close as what they received from a blade. While it’s still not quite as close, the Braun 8995 Complete 360 Electric Razor gives you one of the closest shaves you can get using an electric razor. It also solves another complaint, and that is lack of convenience. With its self cleaning storage device, you no longer have to worry about using those little hand brushes other electric razors come with that just plain never get the razor clean enough.
I received my Braun 8995 Complete 360 Electric Razor the other day and I am very happy with it. Opening it from the box, it was nice and shiny, and wrapped in plastic wrap to keep it clean during shipping. The recharging unit was packaged separately and is also the self cleaning unit for your new Braun 8995 Complete 360 Electric Razor. My biggest complaint about the razor itself was that it could not be used as soon as it was purchased, as you need to charge the razor before using it, since it comes with no charge. This process to charge the razor takes about one hour from no charge to a full charge, which is not bad for an electric razor. The razor even has a digital display on it to tell you when you are low on charge and need to recharge your Braun 8995 Complete 360 Electric Razor.
I have been using an electric razor for almost a decade now, and haven’t been able to find one I really liked for the long term. My old electric razor was a Braun 5000 line razor, which is much less expensive than the Braun 8995 Complete 360 Electric Razor. I just wasn’t sure about spending that big money of between $100 and $200 on an electric razor, which had delayed me from purchasing this model earlier. This time though I decided to take the risk and so far I am very glad that I am. With my old Braun electric razor it could take close to 15 minutes of shaving to shave to the point that I wanted. With the new 8995 model I purchased it only took four minutes on my first shave. With 50 minutes of shaving time per charge that will easily last me over a week without recharging.
The Braun 8995 Complete 360 Electric Razor comes with a cleaning cartridge to put in your storage/charging/cleaning unit for your razor. The cleaning solution should last about a month cleaning your razor on a daily basis, but I’ve heard from others that you can stretch this out to two months by cleaning the razor every other day and losing no performance by waiting the extra day. The cleaning is very easy. All you have to do is to push down the “clean switch” and it will clean the razor for you. The display even tells you when you need to clean your razor. Other features of the digital display include telling you how long you have left in your cleaning cycle, and how many shaves you have made with your razor. If you are looking for an upper end electric razor, you can’t go wrong with the Braun 8995 Complete 360 Electric Razor. Just make sure you have time to let it charge for an hour before using it when you buy it.
