When it comes to picking out grooming devices, chances are that the dad in your life hasn’t treated himself to a new electric shaver for a long, long time. The truth is that razors and their electric counterparts have come a long way over the last decade. But you know him best, and if all he wants is a portable shaver that’ll give him his closest shave yet, that’s where Braun comes in.
Knowing where to begin with a beard trimmer is half the battle, but when you’re buying a gift (even if it is for yourself), you want something that’s as versatile and usable as possible. The bottom line: You can’t go wrong with the brand’s latest Series 9 Pro Electric Shaver, or what Braun likes to call its “best shaver, period.”
The company’s not joking either. It’s a premium beard shaver that’s built to last for the long haul (seven years, in fact). Tested against other leading premium tier products, the Braun Series 9 Pro is the world’s most efficient electric shaver, now better with a flexible new ProHead that can cut one, three, or seven-day beards even in tricky areas.
Braun’s Series 9 Pro cuts out the need to take your time in the morning, and it can now cut smoother and quicker than its previous models — no more worrying about catching your facial hair by accident in the process. In short, you get a fast and smooth shave, no matter how close you go.
And, maybe best of all, you can use it in the shower thanks to its waterproof design and on the go with the included charging case. In other words, its included PowerCase acts like a portable charger for the shaver . That means no more trying to find an outlet to plug it in, or having to charge it constantly when traveling — this shaver can give you a close yet gentle shave for six weeks before needing a recharge. Now, if you’re comparing that to other buzzers, that’s a hell of a lot of grooming for one portable piece of gear.
The Braun shaver also comes with accessories like a cleaning cartridge and brush to help you maintain your new gear, along with a wall charger.
Though the Braun electric shaver would normally cost Dad around $350 for that close-shave feeling, the brand’s newest promotion gets him $50 off — saving him (or the gift-giver) some cash to put towards a couple new LPs for his collection.
To get the $50 discount in time for Father’s Day, you’ll want to act fast — get it while supplies last. You can shop the new Series 9 Pro online now, and check out the brand’s other grooming gear at Braun.com.
