Father’s Day (June 21) is less than a week away. In doing our regular sniffing around for the best gifts for Dad, we noticed that one of our favorite electric razors from Braun — which would definitely fall into the category of good for dads — is currently on sale at Amazon. While the company predicts it may arrive a bit after the big day (as early as June 23, according to Amazon), the electric razor, which has been cited as a shaving essential by barbers, photographer Jean Pigozzi, and our own editors, boasts a lot of features that Dad may be happy to wait for. Those include blades that clean themselves, five intensity settings, and Braun’s so-called ActiveLift technology, which lifts up flat-lying facial hair to ensure a neat, consistent shave (and minimal razor bumps or burn). In addition to the ActiveLift technology, “the higher quality of Braun’s blades makes them less prone to irritating sensitive skin,” according to celebrity barber Vince Garcia. While not exactly cheap, the sale price makes the Series 7 electric razor more affordable than it would normally be — and, as barber Craig Whitely points out, you’re getting “the same powerful, amazing motor” that you would get in Braun’s far more expensive Series 9 shaver.
