Braun CoolTec Shaver Review โ€“ Perfect for Sensitive Skin!

Braun CoolTec Electric Shaver
Last updated: 1/3/2017

Getting tired of breakouts, itchiness and burning? You really need to try Braun CoolTec shaver because of its built-in aluminum cooling bar. Just using this shaver will alone reduce your facial temperature up to 20 percent reducing skin irritation.


Shavers use energy and when energy is being emitted the heat will be felt on your skin having this cooling feature turned on you will not have to feel this natural effect on your skin. You can easily zone out into the Arctic chilling with some polar bears drinking on some coca cola. Everyone can dream. This shaver will work great on course hair providing a nice smooth finish without leaving tiny hair follicles.

The one thing I feel compelled to mention is that if you're going to use the cooling feature (most people will buy this shaver for this feature) you will need to know that the feature eats away at the battery life. The charge will last a long time when not in cooling mode, but the cooling element drains the battery. It feels so amazing that having to charge the shaver on a more frequent basis overrides this flaw (many consumers have reported that the battery still holds a great charge in cooling mode so it is one of those YMMV scenarios).

You will notice that you may have to go over the same spot a couple times but with the cooling technology you will not experience the after burn that usually surfaces from repeat shave overs. Don't be like the many men that grow out their beards in retaliation for the skin irritation their faces receive when trying for a close shave. You will get the shave you want without the irritation you don't want. Give it a try you have nothing to lose except your facial hair and more to gain--smooth shave with a coolness factor.

Commonly Asked Questions About Braun's CoolTec Electric Shaver

Q - Can you charge the shaver directly into the wall from shaver?

A - No. You will have to use the charging stand the shaver has. It will not shave directly from shaver to wall.

Q - What is included with purchase of the Braun CoolTec shaver?

A - Charging stand, tiny brush to clean hair debris, manual and last but not least the cool shaver

Q - What is the best way to shave with this shaver? New to the cooling bar.

A - First, make sure have your face before you wash it (even while in the shower), next you will want to shave your face while holding the shaver in a 90 degree angle toward your skin. Pull your skin taut (stretched) and make sure to shave against the grain and not with it for the best results.

The Verdict

First let me start off by saying this shaver is the gift for dudes with sensitive skin, however, having to go over the same spot in order to get a smooth, close shave is time consuming that folks don't have the time for when getting ready for work (the snooze button gentlemen), but if you're fine with adding a mere couple minutes to your morning routine in order to enjoy the amazing cooling bar feature then you will not be disappointed.

The other thing was the battery life issue when using the cooling mode, some consumers didn't have an issue with this but you can't ignore the consumers that did. The Braun CoolTec shaver will be great to use during the hot summer months and will raise some neck hairs in the winter time when cold meets winter cold--nice!

I like having the option to plug shaver directly into the wall to charge without the charging stand but I guess this is for liabilities when using the shaver in the shower (would someone really do that? You bet!), that's just my hypothesis without in-depth research so please don't quote me on that. ๐Ÿ™‚ Be sure to read more electric shaver reviews before you make your final purchase.
