Summary of My Review on Braun Series 7 790cc
Men with sensitive skin and black men share a common dread for razors or blades. Due to friction, irritation, in-grown hair, nicks and burns that are frequently caused by manual razors, both dark-skinned men and men with sensitive skin are likely to experience disfiguring bumps and ugly scars on their faces, which may ultimately affect their facial appearance and self-esteem.
Unlike manual razors, blades of foil electric shavers do not really touch the skin because they are covered by the thin foils on the shaving heads. With minimal skin contact, those electric shavers deliver treasured closeness, smoothness and coverage without inflicting cosmetic and emotional damage.
And talking about the best electric shavers for black men and men with sensitive skin, Braun Series 7-790cc Pulsonic Electric Shaver comes first, hands down. Manufactured by Braun, a leading company with a solid history of delivering the best quality and hygienic products to consumers, the Braun 790cc is a feature-rich and efficient shaver that delivers quick, close, irritation-free and bumps-free shaves over and over again.
Did you know, that this Braun 790cc model shaver is the official NFL electric shaver and the world’s No.1 foil shaver brand.

How To Use Braun Series 7- 790cc Pulsonic Shaver
- Clean your face thoroughly to remove excess oil and dirt from the hair. After washing, dry your face with a towel. If you opt for a wet shaving mode, apply a shaving gel/cream on your face and rub gently so that both the hair and skin are soft.
- Turn it on and hold it into shaving position. Begin by making gentle back and forth movements and then increase the pressure as the skin gets used to the shaver. Use your free hand to stretch the skin so that the shaver can catch all flat hair pressed closely to the skin.
- When you want a very close shave, you should move it against the grain, ensuring that it is held gently enough to allow the shaving head to follow facial contours and adjust to hard-to-reach areas.
- Use cold water to rinse your face so that pores can close and freshly exfoliated skin can recover. Then dry your face with a clean towel.
How To Clean Braun Series 7- 790cc Pulsonic Shaver
- The shaver can be cleaned either automatically or manually.
- When doing manual cleaning, turn it ON and hold its head under hot running water. After a few seconds, remove it from running water and allow it to run for some seconds before turning it off. Then press the release button located near the shaving head so you can remove the cutter cassette and the foil. Allow the shaver’s components to air dry on a clean area.
- For self-cleaning, you will need to plug the shaver’s “Clean and Renew Station” and then to slide the cartridge gently into the space located at the bottom of the station. Then insert the shaving head into the top portion of the cleaning station, align them properly and press “Start Cleaning” button. Auto-cleaning will last 30-45 minutes.
This shaver has really impressed me with its excellent reviews to the point that I have done a FAQ / Q&A about it.
