Some men can’t shave without their straight razors. Others swear by their five-bladed monstrosities. Me? I like to get shaving over with as fast as possible, which is why I rely on electric shavers that help me clean up my face in a jiffy. Sure, you get the occasional razor burn due to heat build-up, but it’s rare enough, especially if you keep up with a regular schedule. If razor burns have kept you from crossing over to my side of the shaving divide, this Braun CT2S-W CoolTec Shaver might be the tool to get you over.
An electric shaver with Braun’s CoolTec “active cooling technology,” it’s designed to automatically cool the skin as it shaves over the area. That way, any redness, burning, or itching that starts up will immediately be calmed down, minimizing instances of irritation for people with sensitive skin.
The Braun CT2S-W Cool Tec Shaver doesn’t just cool the skin by preventing heat build-in the head, it also comes with an integrated aluminum bar that’s designed to soothe the skin as it passes over. Aside from the novel feature, it’s also quite the powerful shaver, with a three-stage cutting system that has individual elements moving independently to cover every facial contour, including a middle trimmer that provides arguably the closest shave you can get from an electric razor. Other features include special blades that can capture hair growing in different directions, waterproofing up to 5-meter depths (so you can shave while drowning in the pool), and a convenient five-minute quick charge that’s good for one shave.
Available now, the Braun CT2S-W Cool Tec Shaver is priced at $623.
