Braun Series 5 5090cc – Bang For The Buck

The new braun series 5 5090cc is not just another pretty electric shaver. It has enough testosterone under the hood to master any beard—even yours. Under sleek lines and brushed metal accents, this electric shaver is equipped with a unique combination of power and precision for uncompromising performance without sacrificing skin comfort. New FlexMotionTec delivers 3X more adaptability vs. previous Braun Series 5 to provide significantly more skin contact in problem areas, for efficient shaving with less skin pressure.

In order to get the best shave possible with the 5090 model you must make sure to shave your face before you get it wet. Once your face becomes moist from soaps and water it can hinder the natural flow of the shaver reducing its smooth glide effect that results in a close shave. If you shave with your face damp you will still get a terrific shave but the chances of a smoother shave increases greatly if done dry.

The Braun Series 5 5090cc is highly functional and delivers terrific results. While there are some negative sides of it, overall, it is an impressive product. If you are looking for an advanced, powerful and easy-to-use electric shaver, the Braun Series 5 5090cc is the one to choose.

This shaver has a curved design with dotted rubber that gives a comfortable and firm grip while shaving. It measures 6.2” x 6.2” x 10” and is extremely light in weight. It has 5 different power indicators that allow you to easily keep an eye on the power level and ensure an uninterrupted and smooth shaving. There’s an LED light to display the battery status and it informs you when to charge the shaver before running out of power.


  • The new powerdrive delivers 20 percent extra power for high-speed cutting even for the toughest beards
  • Neck and side burns are the two most difficult areas for an electric shaver to reach. But, no matter how difficult an area is, the patented Active Lift technology used in this Braun electric shaver will do an exceptional job regarding this.
  • At the heart of the matter is the Flex Motion technology that refers to the three cutting elements that each has their own suspension mechanism that allows it to follow the contours of your face.
  • One of the most popular features of the Braun Series 5 5090cc is the Clean & Charge Station. Once you use your quality shaver you have the benefit of the only four-action, an alcohol-based accessory that hygienically cleans, while it charges and lubricates. This Braun exclusive also automatically chooses the cleaning program.


This shaver works great on the dense beards and for men who want the bald head look. The skin irritation will not be an issue so if sensitive skin is a problem you will not have to worry.

Comfort is one of the most important factors that contemplate a men to choose an electric shaver. However, for me, apart from the comfort, the features in a shaver also play an important role. And the Braun Series 5 5090cc has impressed me in both the departments.

Overall the 5090cc got a lot of positive reviews with some men proclaiming that this is the best electric shaver that they’ve used.I wouldn’t go that far because each man’s needs are different. So let’s breakdown what works with this razor and what does not. This razor has a similar shaving head as the series 7 and is around $50 cheaper so it is a better deal in my opinion.
