The Braun Series 7 790cc FINALLY Got Rid of my Razor Burn
Razor burn is a serious issue I’ve experienced my entire life. I have very thick hair for a Caucasian male and my African-American friends often face similar issues as me and it’s nice to know I’m not alone.
I was recently given this shaver for free as a gift from a friend of mine (Kevin) because I’m always looking for the next best thing in the shaving world. When I first tried it, it was too easy and reminded me of cheap shavers that feel great the first time and then don’t work well after that.
I was so utterly wrong.
I have never seen an electric shaver that has been consistent since day one. It is expected with general wear and tear that an electric shaver will stop working well after years of use.
I called Kevin and asked how long his had lasted because I was thinking there’s no way this thing is going to last for years and years. He told me he had an older model that was discontinued and it was still running great.
I asked him how long he had it and this is when I almost dropped the phone.
13 years… He has been using the same shaver for 13 years and it’s working just as well as when he got it! The durability of the Braun Series 7 790cc is unlike anything I’ve ever seen.
I decided to do some research and learned that it is not uncommon for them to last 10+ years. I have never seen a statistic like this when it comes to electric shavers. Ever. I used to use Braun when I was a kid but decided against it mainly because back in the day, other companies had the more advanced technology.
That is definitely no longer the case. I am very impressed and overall thankful that Kevin got me this. I now have five electric razors and the three I’ve written about are my personal favorite.
The Panasonic wet dry shaver is great for when I’m running late and in the car, the Phillips Norelco SensoTouch is good for getting in those tough spaces on my neck and upper lip, and the Braun Series 7 790cc is perfect for a quick but blissful shave over my entire face right after I get out of the shower.
As I previously mentioned though, this shaver definitely has one step up on its competitors based on the durability. High quality electric shavers can be quite expensive so it’s a pain to replace them.
I’m not planning on needing to replace this one anytime soon which makes me very happy.
My son is about turn 16 and has started shaving with razors and I might get him a Braun Series 7 790cc because it would be perfect for him.
I believe this is the last piece of the perfect set of electric shavers that I have accumulated over the years. After hearing about the durability, of this shaver, I did some research on Braun and their shavers and was pleasantly surprised with the results I found.
It seems like they are one of the only companies who are making consistent, high quality shavers. As previously said, I don’t know any other kind of shavers that have or even have the capability of lasting over 10 years.
The Braun Series 7 790cc also shaves so close to my skin but isn’t uncomfortable at all. My wife commented on how my face felt so smooth and I laughed and told her “a smooth face for a smooth guy”. I love this shaver.
