Braun Beard Trimmer BT3040

I was a little sceptical before getting the Braun Beard Trimmer BT3040 as I have tried other electric razors in the past but could never find one I was content with. I was pleasantly surprised with this one as it was better than I expected. I wanted something that could be used as a wet or dry shaver and something that could 'tidy' my beard, not just leave a tight stubble. With the Braun Beard Trimmer BT3040 I found just that. Relatively quiet, easy to clean, good battery life and above all the multiple length options meant I could style how I wanted. Best one I have tried yet. I would definitely recommend.

Cutting Edge Stuff!

What can I say!? There's a lot of areas to cover, so I might just CUT to the chase! The trim review, is that the Braun BT3040 beard trimmer is no more, nor no less than any other trimmer!? I mean, two serrated blades that slide across each other... not much physics involved (so technology cant really improve on what has been around for decades). The design refines itself, and it becomes sleeker, becomes more powerful, becomes more convenient. Like the new design of the combs (to catch a lot of the hair). These catch most of the trimmings, cause lets be honest, some of us guys... like to get 'down' with our trimmers, which isn't always over the sink! "What a load of balls" I hear you say!They are "amazingly simple" yes. Let you "achieve designer stubble, maintain a full beard" Yes. However, what's the point in "39 precision length settings" when the bare setting doesn't get very close to the skin. I have had several trimmers in the last few years, and they get closer on the trimmed areas, not necessarily a fresh shaved look... But 5 o'clock shadow passable look! The only close shave I had was with surviving the RRP of this product (when you can achieve better results with a quarter of the outlay). So "Ultimate control" is a bit of a strong claim I can't recognise. Though, as I said, physics can only do so much here. Whilst we men continue on our adventure into touting our facial furniture with pride, asserting that we don't choose to have a beard, we just previously chose not to (for the sake of what society deemed to be respectable, responsible and required for so many years).The 'Clean and fresh' look, just got Dirty!

Absolutely in love with the new Braun beard trimmer

I am completely in love with the new Braun beard trimmer. As soon as I opened the box and got my hands on the trimmer, I knew this was the one for me. It felt slick, stylish and easy to use. However, it isn't just all about looks, it is highly functional with 39 ways of trimming to my desired style. I don't need to consider another trimmer after this one, because I always get the style I want.It's developed to perfection and I feel great confidence walking out to work or going out with friends over the weekend because I look great and feel great, thanks to Braun.

Power, precision and portability

The portable Braun Beard Trimmer is great little piece of kit. The battery keeps its charge for an unbelieveable length of time - I've only charged it once and I've used it almost every day to trim my beard (4mm) and a couple of times to cut my whole head (2mm). Being portable means it's lightweight and compact enough to take in hand luggage on a plane and I don't have to worry about the bulky charger. The trimmer is extremely powerful and you'd never guess it battery powered. It cuts through my thick hair easily without any snagging. I love that you can set the trimmer to 0.5mm presets - it gives you a lot of control when styling your beard. Overall I highly recommend the Braun Beard Trimmer and would give this a solid ten out of ten. I can't fault it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Expert Precision from a world famous brand

Who doesn't like growing a hipster beard now and then, so you don't feel out of place in trendy East London. However, with conventional shavers, they can be inflexible, slow and doesn't shave to your ideal style. Thankfully, I managed to try the brilliant Braun beard trimmer recently. I was so excited when I got the package. It has an amazing 39 precision length settings! I get to have full control of the style I want. It is so easy to use and absolutely the only shaver I will be using from now on, because I get precisely the style I want. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

2 weeks and still love

I have been using the Braun BT3040 for 2 weeks now and still love using it. It's a pleasure to use easy to clean with great results every time. My own experience with beard shaves has been a challenge with pulling and painfull red skin, and I'm still amazing with the pain free results I get with this Braun. Highly recommended.

Braun Beard Trimmer BT3040

I recently got the Braun Beard Trimmer BT3040. Firstly, I must say the shape and grip of the trimmer is far better and far more durable than my previous trimmer (different brand) - so the signs were good from the outset! Secondly, the attachments themselves were a welcome addition as they allow for not only beard but also head shaving!The bonus of having a Gillette razor included offers the chance for variations to your cut.As someone who loves a fine cut when shaving, this is by far one of the best products I've used - best of all it leaves no irritation or red marks!A fantastic trimmer that has a surprising long battery life. Highly recommend! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Final review of Braun BT3040

Been using it for the past month now and will be carrying on using it long after this review period has passed. Pleased to find that the precision and smoothness of the trimmer hasn't dropped off after multiple use. The wide range of lengths through the two different combs provided has enabled me to have some fun with my beard styles, don't think the girlfriend has enjoyed them as much as me. The trimmer is very accurate, smooth, precise and lightweight which makes it easy to trim those difficult places. It's easy to clean and easy to use so will 100% be recommended It to friends and family. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Brauntastic

Having a short kept beard was a difficult task before i tried out this little beuaty. I like the fact that it is compact and that it still packs a punch with plenty of power to get through the toughest of growth when needed. I used to spend what seemed like ours trying to shape my beard but with this it was so much easier. It has plenty of different lengths which you can try. I always find the longer my beard is the itchier it gets and with this you work out the right length for you. I think it is an excellent product which I use 2 weekly to keep my beard in trim. My only critisism if any is that it would be nice to have a narrower cutter to shape the moustache. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
