Braun Cruzer 6 Beard Trimmer Review
The Cruzer 6 is a beard and head trimmer manufactured by Braun. The German company is currently a subsidiary of Proctor and Gamble, but from 1984 to 2005, it was a wholly owned subsidiary of The Gillette Company. Under Proctor and Gamble’s reign, the Kronberg-based consumer products company has become quite renowned for its electronic devices, which include beard trimmers as well. In fact, the most powerful of all trimmers ever produced by the company is the Cruzer 6 beard and hair trimmer. The machine has received 3.7 out of 5 stars and has been made available in the market at a price of $47.24.
The Cruzer 6 has been given a waterproof structure, which is easy to hold, clean, and care for. The body can be immersed in water, which means you can shave while in the shower. It has, therefore, been given a rubberized structure which allows for a firm grip so that the device will not slip out of hand while shaving under wet conditions. Moreover, the waterproof design means that hair trapped inside the device would be easily cleaned. Furthermore, its body is completely sealed, which prevents any dust or water particles from entering the shaver.
The Cruzer 6 weighs 6.2 ounces, measures 2.2 x 6.1 x 8.7 inches, and is available in a grey and blue casing. The company also includes 2 separate beard and head combs in the package along with a travel pouch.
The Braun Cruzer 6 has some outstanding features, one of which includes the dual battery system. This allows the trimmer to run up to 40 minutes after being charged for just an hour. Also, the powerful battery system adjusts well to varying beard conditions and allows users to achieve an even trim.
Another feature is the 6 hair length settings that the beard and hair combs offer. The beard comb provides settings from 1 millimeter to 11 millimeters, while the hair comb offers settings from 10 millimeters to 22 millimeters. With or without the combs attached, the sharp stainless steel trimmer offers a length from 1 to 20 millimeters and allows for perfect styling and beard shaping.
The Cruzer 6 also features the precision trimmer. It is a small trimmer lodged onto the original trimmer’s body, which glides in and out upon the user’s need. It allows the user to reach smaller areas such as under the nose.
Many users have commended the provision of separate detachable combs, which allow them to style their hair according to their preferences. Several users love the dual battery system, which allows them to continue trimming for long periods without charging. Moreover, the trimmer has been claimed to be quite versatile, allowing users to trim beard and hair and even style them. However, some users have complained that the guard breaks down easily, and a few do not appreciate the plastic casing and would have preferred an all-metallic design.
