We Pirillos are a hairy bunch. I’ve had to shave ever since I was a young teen. I hate straight razors, and being a Geek… I need gadgets! I’ve tried nearly every brand and razor out there, and am happy with the line of Braun electric razors.
For years, Braun has served me well. They give me the success, comfort and speed that I want out of an electric razor. I’m Italian, and I have a LOT of facial hair. Not only is it thick, it’s also curly. That makes it much harder to get a good, close shave. The hairs curl inwards, back towards my face. I’m also prone to ingrown hairs.
Any time Braun comes out with a new razor, I have to buy it and try it. So, of course, I had to try this new Pulsonic. Right out of the box, I can tell the difference in weight with older models. It’s contoured differently, and definitely lighter. Turning it on, it definitely is louder and vibrates differently. I guess it would have to vibrate differently though, since it boasts a different type of blade rotation called Sonic Pulsing.
Doing a small test run with it, it’s not half bad. I’ll have to give it more time, and get it adjusted best for my face. It appears to get my face nice and smooth in most places, but did leave a few rough patches. The way I measure a good electric razor is by how many times I have to go over my face with it to get it completely clean and smooth.
An excellent little Geeky feature to this razor is the LCD readout. It tells you how much charge is left on the battery, and also what the hygeine level is. That way, you know when the razor is due for a cleaning. Every Braun razor comes with a little cleaning case that you pop it in, and let it do its work.
Before I sign off, I have to link back to an old video of the time Ponzi convinced me to try Waxing my face. Why any sane human being would do this more than once is beyond me. Trust me… don’t even try it once.
