 Braun Cool Tec Shaver Review

Something a little different – one for the boys! I’ve been sent one of the new Braun Cool Tec Shaver gadgets to give it a road test – and no,  I haven’t developed a sudden bout of extreme facial hair, I have passed this along to my fiance to get a mans perspective. He’s a man of many words… apparently apart from when I get him to describe the shaving experience with this new gadget. But in typical boy fashion, his review is below.

“I’ve always preferred manual shaving over electric shavers after I had a a bad experience with a cheap one when I was younger that basically tore my face apart! As a result I’ve been a bit wary of the electric variety ever since. But Jen convinced me to give this one a go and it’s definitely the best electric shaver I’ve used – and very different to the one I tried years ago. The cooling effect is really refreshing and leaves my skin feeling nice. It’s quick to use and the battery seems to last pretty well so far. I don’t think it will totally replace a manual shave for me – but I’m doing a cycling trek in Vietnam and Cambodia in November and know this will come in very handy then as I know it will last the trip – unlike a manual razor that would go blunt. So for travel and an easy shave this is handy to have – and has changed my view on electric razors from my last go with them.”

Make your Dad’s #FathersDayDreams come true…

Since we’re talking all things boy related… it makes sense to  offer a little heads up in case you didn’t know – it’s Father’s Day this weekend (yep, get that card in the posts asap!) and this post is dedicated to celebrating Dads and giving them a little bit of a nod on how big a deal they are. I know, beauty blogs are often all about the mums, but this week it’s all about the Dads.

Braun have launched a lovely little Fathers Day activity all around #FathersDayDreams – where you are invited to submit your own message about your Dad’s #FathersDayDreams – basically your chance to tell everyone what you love most about the Dad in your life and why he deserves a bit of a treat. All you need to do to enter is send a tweet making sure you use #FathersDayDreams and #Braun (so they can find it) sharing why your Dad is special and what his ultimate Father’s Day Dream prize would be… a little like my message below:

The prize is the chance to make your Dad’s Father’s Day Dreams come true – so if he’s dreaming of a dinner in a michelin star restaurant, or maybe even a trip to the moon (these may or may not both be on my Dad’s lists I suspect…) then share it for the chance to make it come true!
