While electric shavers have managed to secure a massive piece of the pie in the UK, most men still prefer to do it manually for a closer, more consistent shave. So, how do you even begin settling such a debate?
And don’t even get me started on to wet or not to wet. It’s for this exact reason that Braun created something for the well-groomed man to enjoy the best of both worlds. Today, we’ll be looking at the Braun Waterflex WF2s Electric Foil Shaver and if it truly lives up to the high Braun standards.

Braun Waterflex WF2s Review
What Are You Buying?
Like I always say, before you even touch the product, you have to know your brands first. Introducing one of the original electric shaver manufacturers, Braun is already widely known all over the UK for their high-quality personal grooming products. Even with all their innovation, you have to hand it to the company for maintaining fair prices. Now, down to today’s piece of business.
The Waterflex Electric Shaver is Braun’s pride and joy that utilises a foil head as opposed to the usual rotary mechanism. For our more sensitive skinned bros and guys who like to look sharper than Will Smith, then you know just how effective a foil shave can be. To be honest, it’s my favourite shaving system!
The WF2s foil shaver incorporates a triple action cutting system with dual optiblades that comfortably handle both long and short hair. And speaking of flexibility, Braun knows that there are different type of men. Some like to shave while showering while others prefer to do it later or on the go. That’s why they designed the WF2s to be used for both wet and dry shaves.
But what really grabbed my eye was the adaptive swivel head that turns 33 degrees for greater flexibility when shaving. This allows the Waterflex shaver to contour easily on problem areas such as the chin and neck. There’s also a slide-up precision trimmer that allows you to get that sleek, accurate and precise style and finish that you like. But compared to other foil shavers, just how user-friendly is this thing?
How Easy Is It to Use?
Anyone who knows about Braun knows that even though their products may look futuristic, they couldn’t be any simpler to use. The Braun Waterflex WF2s Electric Foil Shaver lets you shave with water, foam, or even gel.
And just in case you’re worried about mixing electricity and water, the Braun Waterflex foil shaver is waterproof up to a depth of only 5 metres. So while you can comfortably shave in the shower, no underwater escapades if you were looking forward to it.
Similarly, the blades handle really well; especially when wet! Personally, I didn’t experience any tugging, redness, nicks, or discomfort while shaving, but it might have something to do with my weak beard. Someone with stronger, wiry hair might feel a pinch or two here and there when using the shaver dry. Combined with the rubberized grip zone and ergonomic handle, manoeuvring the Waterflex is literally a breeze.
As for the charge, I’d say it’s relatively fair. The Braun Waterflex WF2s Electric Shaver packs a 3.6-volt lithium ion battery that provides 1 hour 45 minutes of cordless shaving. However, a quick 5-minute charge is good for at least one or two shaves for when you’re in a hurry. Braun topped off the charging function with a 2 stage LED display that shows you when it’s time to recharge.
What Accessories Are Included?
Once you’ve made your order, you can expect the following items in the box:
- Braun Waterflex WF2s Men’s Electric Foil Shaver
- Cleaning brush
- Protective cap
What Do We Think About It?
- Maintains Braun’s high-quality standards
- Incredibly versatile functionality
- Fully waterproof exterior
- Ideal for sensitive skin
- Like most razors, a dry shave might irritate sensitive skin but still less than other shaving systems do in my experience
Anything Else You Should Know?
While this is not entirely a demerit, I felt obligated to mention it even if for security purposes alone. Now, it’s not advisable to use the WF2s Waterflex shaver in the shower while it’s charging. That’s because while the unit itself is waterproof, the charger and charging port are not. So make sure the shaver is well charged before hitting the shower.
Practical, multi-purpose, versatile, user-friendly and affordable, the Braun Waterflex WF2s Men’s Electric Foil Shaver is the ideal choice for well-groomed men on a budget. Sure, it might not be inexpensive, but quality and style often come at a price. So save on value, save on time and most importantly, save your face with Braun’s top choice for a smooth, gentle and close shave.
