Father's Day Gift Ideas with Braun & Gillette

Father's Day is creeping up on us once again and for me, it is an occasion that I struggle with when it comes to buying gifts. I usually tend to go for a grooming product as I don't think you can go wrong there. Gillette and Braun have some great products at different prices so you are sure to find something that will suit your budget.

Gillette's latest razor - the Fusion ProShield - will leave skin feeling soft and protected thanks to added lubrication before and after the blades.

 Both of the above razors work in similar ways. The ProShield lubrication before and after the blades form a protective layer to shield from irritation. The FlexBall technology means that it makes maximum contact over contours and gets virtually every hair. The only difference between the two is that the Chill version has a "Chill feature" during shaving thanks for Cooling Technology. 

You are able to buy additional replacement blades for both of these razors so you don't need to fork out for a brand new razor after every usage.

Braun also have a great new selection of Styling Range products which are designed to help every man achieve his own unique look all over his body. With products for trimming and shaping on smooth skin to stubble and bushy beards, Braun combine world class design with in-depth grooming expertise for precision styling from head to toe.
Braun Series 3 - £99.99 
This razor is suitable for both wet and dry use. It has a triple action cutting system that shaves closer in 3 stages. The floating head adapts to your facial contours and shaves both short and long hairs with every stroke.
 It is fully washable under water and holds a 1 hour charge for 45 minutes cordless time. It also has a 5 minute quick charge option.

Braun Beard Trimmer - £39.99 
The Braun Beard Trimmer makes it easy to achieve an exact trim length and precise contours for a perfectly groomed beard. It comes with a lifetime lasting sharp blades and 25 length settings thanks to the ergonomically designed dial so you have complete control over texture and style.
The Precision Comb cuts hair to between 1mm and 10mm in 0.5mm steps, whilst the Long Beard Comb trims hairs between 10mm and 0mm in 2mm steps. It comes with a slide out Detail Trimmer that works even with the comb on for effective styling of beard lines.
The Trimmer can be used corded or cordless and 1 hour of charging time gives for 50 minutes of cordless usage. Similarly to the Series 3, it is also fully washable in running water.

Braun Body Grooming Kit - £129.99 
The Braun Body Grooming Kit provides the ultimate flexibility to manscape all areas: epilating removes body hair for from the root for four weeks of results. The Efficiency Cap removes hair from larger areas whilst the Sensitive Cap provides precise epilation on smaller, harder-to-reach parts of your body.
40 tweezers with Close-Grip Technology remove hair as short as 0.5mm so there's no awkward regrowth period. The built-in Smartlight reveals even the shortest hairs to ensure that you don't miss any plus it works in the shower so it can fit into your routine easily.
Braun Multi Groomer - £69.99
With the Braun Multi Groomer you can shave, style and trim just about any beard style imaginable. The unique 3-in-1 system allows you do it all using just one product. The groomer has three attachments. The extra wide shaver head is equipped with a flexible SmartFoil for a smooth and clean shave in a few strokes. The twistable trimmer has a wide side for efficient trimming and a narrow side for styling beard lines. The Click & Lock comb trims facial hair to four exact lenghs (1.2mm, 2.8mm, 4.4mm, 6mm) and it also can be washed under running water.
Braun Hair Clipper - £39.99
This clipper has ultra-sharp secured blades for high performance which are lifetime lasting. With two smart trimming attachments and 17 precise length settings, it can be used to customise a large variety of styles. The Memory SafetyLock remembers the last setting used, even when the attachment has been removed which is great if you stick to the same length all the time. It can be used both corded and cordless and is fully washable under running water.
Braun Body Groomer - £39.99
The Body Groomer is one that my boyfriend Chris has the chance to use himself. It can be used to shave, trim and maintain your whole body, even down under as the groomer sensitive comb ensures your delicate areas are under safe trimmers. The 2-in-1 functionality means that it can trim and clean-shave in one movement, for a grooming routine that is fast and hassle-free.

Inside the box you get:
  • Groomer with Gillette Fusion cartridge
  • Long comb
  • Medium comb
  • Sensitive comb
  • Charging stand
  • Shower hanger
  • Cleaning brush
  • Soft pouch
  • Extra Gillette Fusion cartridge 
 The first thing we noticed when opening the Groomer out was the the charger isn't a standard UK one. We have a few adapters at home as Chris has owned quite a few Braun products and we were aware of this but it's something that you may want to remember to pick up if you are buying for your dad who might not have an adapter.

Chris really liked the simplicity of this groomer. As it can do anything, it cut his grooming time by almost half. Previously he was grooming then taking a shower, whereas now he can do it all whilst in the shower. The groomer can be used for facial, chest, back, armpit hair as well as in delicate areas as I mentioned previously. A few of these places (like back and armpit) were areas that Chris wouldn't regularly groom so it wasn't used for this. Chris said that he found it easy to use and it would glide over his skin easily. Changing lengths was easy, all you have to do is press a button in and slide to your desired one. The combs work well and he was able to use them to get his precise length. The sensitive one was the one he was most wary of as that isn't somewhere that you want to cut but it did as it said and he was pleased with the results. We found that he had no irritation or itchiness which is a massive plus.
Braun Precision Trimmer - £14.99

The Braun Precision Trimmer is another that Chris had the opportunity to try. It has two trimming combs to provide flexible, precise trimming and create precise styles down the very last millimetre. The 5mm comb ensures a consistant, tidy trim and the 8mm comb ensures that facial hair remains perfectly groomed.

Inside the box was:
  • Trimmer
  • Stand
  • AAA battery
  • 8mm comb
  • 6mm comb
  • Protective cap
 Chris tends to keep a full beard so he mostly used the long comb. The size makes it easy to trim his beard line without worrying about overtrimming, cutting the stress and hassle. Using this trimmer took a shorter amount of time than usual which makes Chris give it a huge thumbs up. We always have a stash of batteries at home anyway so the fact that it's battery-powered is handy.
Each of the items in the Braun Styling Range can be purchased from Tesco, Amazon or Argos.
