    Comments about Braun Series 5-590 Shaving System, 1 ea:

    Better than the last Braun, which was louder and trimmer broke in 6 months.

    Blue night light others have mentioned is worse than annoying--it's so bright it casts shadows in the room. Tried covering with black electrical tape; that didn't work. Turns out light is inside, illuminating the blue fluid in cleaning cartridge. Just spray paint the disposable cleaning cartridge black, and the light is almost gone...

      After using nothing but a rotary for 40 years I am shocked that a foil type razor would be as easy to use and give as close a shave.

        This product cost far more than it should and the gimmick cleaner just forces you to keep spending far more than any other shaver for the worst possible cut..

          This product is great for shaving! The built-in trimmer could be better though.

            Best shaver I've ever had. So nice to not have to clean it every day on my own. Just put it in the holder, push the clean button, and it'll be charged and fully cleaned the next time you're ready to use it. Great close shave, quiet, get one now!

            Worst Braun shaver I've ever had

            Comments about Braun Series 5-590 Shaving System, 1 ea:

            I've used Braun shavers since 1982 when I was stationed in Germany. I've had everything from their AA battery operated travel shaver to the 5000 series self cleaning shaver and they all had one thing in common - excellent craftsmanship. This one, however, is an exception to the rule. I will eventually try another Braun shaver but if the performance of this future purchase is as dismal as this one, it will be my last. The battery won't stay charged, it takes several swipes over the beard to cut it close, the shaver chafes my skin and actually has left me with razor burn. It has also pulled the hair on my face causing ingrown hairs and zits. It has to be the absolute worst shaver I have ever purchased in my entire life.

              Whether a quick touch up or after two days, this razor really does the job. It is fast, quiet and very close. I had been touching up in the shower with a blade razor, but with the new Braun 590c that is not necessary. I love the razor and the cleaning system.

                Braun Series 5-590 Shaving System

                – The advanced technology built in to the Braun Series 5-590 Shaving System offers a smooth, close shave without irritating your skin. The shaver captures and cuts stubborn hairs, even in tricky to reach areas. The high-speed cutting action allows it to slice through even the densest hairs with ease. The shaver has been designed to remove hair without pressing down on the skin, minimizing irritation.

                The Braun Series 5-590 Shaving System is a foil shaver, which operates with a sideways movement. The holes in the foil have been cut ergonomically to ensure that they cut the hair as near to the surface of the skin as possible. The ActiveLift system lifts hairs that are lying flat along the skin, ensuring that you get the closest possible shave every time.

                The Braun shaver head can be angled to ensure that you reach those tricky areas, such as under the nose, blow the chin and along the jaw. The integrated precision trimmer can be deployed to trim longer hair, such as a moustache, sideburns or beard.

                You can fully charge the Braun Series 5-590 shaver in one hour, which provides you with fifty minutes of cordless shaving time. However, if you are in a hurry, you can use the five minute quick charge option. This will provide you with enough power for one shave. An LCD charging indicator will let you know how much power is stored within the shaver.

                When you are finished using the Braun Series 5-590 Shaving System, you can clean it by rinsing it under running water. Two or three times a week, you can deep clean, charge and lubricate it by placing it in the Clean & Renew station and pressing the button. The cleaning system uses a lemon-scented, alcohol-based cleanser to eliminate the bacteria and germs that can build up on your shaver. The impurities that can cling to your shaver, such as small particles of stubble and skin cells, are effectively removed. The cleaning solution contains a lubricant that adheres to the blade. Your shaver feels refreshed and renewed, increasing the levels of comfort on your skin the next time you use it. Despite its powerful action, the Clean and Renew station is extremely compact, ensuring that it takes up very little space in your bathroom.

                This shaving system even comes with a soft pouch and protective cap, ensuring that your shaver is protected from damage while you are travelling.
