This would constantly tear up my skin no matter what I did.
- (date not recorded) -- At the time I had a Braun 5414
(date not recorded) -- This was replaced by the Braun 360 complete 8985.
I bought this because it was the only thing which was waterproof.
The shave is notably worse than my Braun 5414 or earlier Braun (I forget the model), but it's damned quiet, easier on my sensitive skin and.. is waterproof so I can lather myself up and use it, or use it in the shower or whatever. Good stuff all around.
To get a better shave, I have to make funny faces and manually stretch my skin around. This shaver would be easier to use like this if it only had one shaving head instead of three.
It claims that my skin needs a few weeks to "get used to" the shaver. I hope that's true, and that eventually my skin won't get so horribly disfigured after shaving. I doubt it though, since my skin has never "gotten used to" the previous shavers that I've used regularly.
The end result: Piece of crap. It reddens my skin at best, and tears it up at worst. Bad bad bad!! Replaced by the Braun 360 complete 8985.
