Our Review of the Braun CruZer6 Face Electric Shaver
The Braun Braun CruZer6 Face is classed as an all in one electric shaver. That is because not only is it a good quality shaver, but it also acts as a styler and trimmer. We will explain more of these features later in this review.
Buyers rate this shaver highly at 3.8 out of 5 stars. It is both a wet and dry shaver and it is also very convenient that it is a cordless shaver. It has been designed and made in Germany by the Braun company. We do however have to say, that we normally only recommend products that have at least a 4 star rating. This model falls below that rating.
So we can not recommend this one, and we have included it as it still remains a popular choice for many UK buyers. We think there is simply better value for money shavers on the UK market.

What Buyers Say About the Braun CruZer6 Face
It is of course very important when considering any electric shaver purchase, to read as many reviews as you can. After all, that is why you are reading this one. We also think it is important not just to read our review, but to get some general feedback, from all buyers.
If you are prepared to pay around £55 for an electric shaver, then it is worthwhile taking some time to make sure it is exactly the right one for you.
Below we have summarised what the hundreds of available reviews and what buyers have been saying about this Braun best selling foil shaver. To keep this simple, we have rated by percentage, how many stars actual buyers have awarded this shaver from the Braun brand. We have shown those in the chart below. At the time of doing this there were over 400 reviews to base these figures on.
So at a glance you can now see, that just under half of all buyers rated this shaver as a 5 star product. Around two thirds of buyers rated it 4 stars or higher. Those in all honesty are simply not very good buyer ratings.
It is also worthwhile pointing out, that the number of 1 star reviews is much higher that you should see for a high quality product. Combine the 1 and 2 star reviews and around 1 in 5 buyers were very disappointed with their purchase.
To sum up the overall average, with over 400 buyer reviews available, this Braun shaver has maintained a low average rating of 3.8 out of 5 stars (76% satisfaction)
This shaver retails around £70, but online you can get it for around £55 if you really want it.
It is also worth pointing out that this model has been replaced with a newer model. That one is called the Braun MG5090 Men's Multi Groomer. It also gets poor reviews. It is however around £20 cheaper than the CruZer Face.

Braun CruZer6 Face - All-In-One Electric Shaver Pros and Cons
Like any product there are usually good and bad points. We here at the Shaving Emporium prefer to advise our readers of both sides of the argument, before making any conclusions.
With this all in one shaver, it truly is a mixed bag. Some of the reviews are very good and others are very poor.
We try and apply a common sense approach to reading reviews. Some of them are clearly left by some strange people, but we have always found that if you look carefully enough, you get some really useful information. It is that which we have summarised below.
As I pointed out already, there are too many poor reviews to be ignored. Below we have included what we have read.
- Many buyers said that this worked very well as a trimmer, but were disappointed with it as a shaver
- Good as an all rounder where you can trim your beard etc, and shave those parts smooth that you want to
- It is good that it can be used as a corded or cordless shaver and also good that the voltage automatically changes
- Struggles with the contours of the face
- Can nip and pluck the hair
- Rather noisy and vibrates a lot
- Looks like low quality

We searches YouTube for any videos on this Braun shaver. There were a few available, but we found this one to be the most useful.
Our Recommendation on the Braun CruZer6 Face
We are not going to recommend this electric shaver to you. We always like to see at least a 4 star review or higher. This one is rated at 3.8 out of 5 stars. There are also too many low reviews for our liking.
If this is not the one for you can check out our electric shaver top rated list by clicking here.
You do get quite a lot for your money, but the foil is very basic. That probably explains why it does not work that well for a smooth shave. Buyers do say that it works well as a beard trimmer. It also seems to work well for trimming edges such as sideburns. The shaver therefore seems to be the disappointing element of this all in one shaver.
Here at the Emporium, we just believe there are so many other better shavers than this particular model.
