Summary: The 550cc holiday pack is a good deal. Love the shaver and the waterproof portable shaver that comes with is cool. The extra cleaning cartridges are nice to have, but 90% isopropyl alcohol and some essence oil is a suitable refill and much much cheaper. Overall, a great shaver and the gift pack is a great deal!
Summary: I recently got a corporate job where I had to start shaving everyday. Razors irritate my skin so I decided to take a chance and buy the Braun 5 series. It was a little pricey but it doesn't irritate my skin at all! It doesn't get as close as a razor but it does a good job. The fact that it doesn't leave me with nicks or ugly razor bump is enough for me.
Summary: It works quite well & I'm happy with it so far. It was definitely an even better value with the travel shaver & additional cleaning solution cartridges thrown in (at the same price). I have had a Braun electric razor for quite a few years now & feel that they make the best product on the market (at least, the more expensive models, made in Germany vs. the cheaper ones made elsewhere). It will give you about as close a shave as possible to a regular razor.
