No bumps, no ingrown hairs, no cuts or discomfort at all!

It doesn't give the smoothest shave either--not like a razor blade.

Multiple passes over thick coarse hair and stubble everywhere.

When I first used this I tried to shave like I do with a normal razor and was disappointed with the results. Then I went through the instructions and gave it another shot - completely different results. I may have better results than some [my hair isn't extravagantly thick] but following the instructions REALLY makes a difference here. Check UK's amazon - the reviews there are raving. This is a nice shaver - no irritation, no razorburn [HURRAH!] - and as long as you follow the instructions - gives a good shave. May not be as close as with a regular razor [I've heard some people say the hair can come back faster, though I haven't had much of a problem with it] but it's certainly more painless. Plus, it's usable in the shower [not plugged in, mind you] which makes it MUCH easier to use - no messy gel or cream to clean up.

EDIT: I should add that, many years later, I no longer use this. It works well for what it is, but if you're used to using a razor and have a system down, this product will probably not improve your experience. HOWEVER, if you have very sensitive skin, this is probably a very good alternative to a razor - at the time I wrote this, my razor routine was not getting along with my skin, and this was a good way to get the same shave I'd get from my razor (without the irritation).

I was hesitant with the price, but desperation due to underarm shaving rashes and cuts helped sway me to purchase this shaver. I am so incredibly, amazingly pleased with the results I get from using this on my underarms. I should shave every day, but with a wet razor cannot. The rashes and irritation I get are horrible. This shaver frees me of discomfort altogether and allows me to quickly shave my underarms every day. They leave no stubble and look as though they were freshly shaved with a wet razor. An attachment is provided for longer hair, which can be used on arms and the bikini area. The trimmer helps to shape the bikini area too. The results were fabulous as well. No bumps, no ingrown hairs, no cuts or discomfort at all! Braun really took into account the needs of delicate, sensitive skin! The unit is washable for super easy cleaning, which I love. No oil is required to lube up the metal parts - a thin film of Vaseline is just fine. It has a rechargeable battery with a power cord, and comes with a draw string travel case. The only downside is that it does a poor job on my legs. It is good for a quick touch up - but does not provide the silky smooth look I get with a wet razor. However, for the amazing job it does in other areas - the price tag is well worth it. 5 stars all around!

After 10 years my old razor quit working.This is now the 2nd new electric razor I purchased. Why can't these companies make a good shaver anymore? Get rid of the gimmicks and just make a good electric shaver!

The Braun is much better than the remington I just ret'd but.....

Pros: Great battery charge

An ok shave but not as close as I want

Great for underarms

Cons: You must use their attachment or you will get razor burn, found out

the burned way. Read their instruction booklet.

Does not give a once over shave, takes a few times and I now need to

pay more attention or hairs are missed. So aggravating!

I bought this as a gift for my wife (she asked for it) and have been very disappointed. She doesn't have coarse hair but still has to make pass after pass to get a presentable--but not smooth--feel. I gave it a shot on my face and worked just as poorly. An electric is supposed to be convenient not double or triple the time you spend shaving. The upsides to this one are that it can be cord-powered or cordless and is easy to clean. But who cares?

I have the Braun 8585 razor and like it so much, I decided to get this one for my wife. She really likes it. No irritation in the bikini area or on her legs. She hasn't tried her underarms yet. It's easy to clean which she really likes too.

It isn't the closest shave, but the battery lasts forever and it works well enough - and no nicks!

I'm glad to see someone else had problems. I recv'd this as a gift and am very disappointed. Multiple passes over thick coarse hair and stubble everywhere. I thought maybe it needed a better charge so I recharged it. That didn't help. So then I went and bought some nice shaving gel (don't ask me why I thought that would make a difference but I really wanted this to work). Still no good. Don't waste your money.

I got the best shave I've ever had with an electric razor using this model. I like that I can use it with or without a cord. I wouldn't exactly call it "ultra smooth and silky" like in the product description, but for an electric I was definitely impressed.
