New Blades for Your Braun Shaver: Updated in June 2024


Braun shaver head Replacement is important to Braun shavers. Braun has been a leading name in electric shaving for more than 50 years, and their products are known for their quality and reliability. Braun sells replacement blades that can be used with most Braun foil or rotary shavers. A Braun blade will provide an excellent shave every time, making it worth the investment over cheaper brands of replacement blades.

How to choose the right blade for your Braun shaver?

Braun blades are designed to fit Braun shavers. The head of a Braun foil razor will require a Braun Optimized Foil Cutter, while the head of a Braun rotary model requires a Braun Series Cutting Head Compatible with All Moisture Bars or OptiFoil Cutter.

Braun blades are not interchangeable between Braun models.

The Braun Series is the only foil replacement head that can be used with all Braun shavers, while the Braun Optifoil Replacement Head is compatible with some rotary models of Braun shavers. If your Braun model isn’t listed on either of these products, check for a compatibility chart or contact customer service to see if your specific model will work before purchasing new blades.

How do I change my old blade?

Replacing a worn-out blade in any type of razor takes just minutes and requires no tools whatsoever – simply pop off the top cap by placing thumbs on both sides near the middle of each side panel under where it attaches to the shaving handle. Lift slightly until you hear a click, this is the sound of a locking tab letting go.

Braun shaver models with Aqua Tec technology have an extra step here – make sure the blue button on each side panel clicks into place before pulling down. Do not force it or you may damage your Braun razor head.

Once both sides are free, pop out the center core by placing your thumbs under where it attaches to the handle and pushing up slightly until it pops off easily.

This entire process should take less than 30 seconds if done carefully without forcing anything open too much lest you risk breaking something that might be difficult to replace or costly to repair as well as voiding any warranty associated with the use of non-Braun parts such as these replacement heads found online for some Braun shavers which include the Braun series shavers.

Finally, don’t forget about after-shave care

After finishing up a shave, apply an alcohol-free toner that will soothe any irritation caused by shaving providing you with a clean and healthy feeling.

On top of that, Braun recommends applying an after-shave moisturizer to keep your skin soft and smooth for the day ahead!

Be sure not to use regular alcohol-based toners or lotions which will dry out your face instead.

5 tips for shaving with a new blade

Shaving with a new blade is always tricky, Braun recommends that you try these five tips to get the best shave possible:

  • Try a new blade every week.
  • Lather up with plenty of shaving gel for extra protection and lubrication – Braun adds it will provide skin with ample moisture during your shave.
  • Use short strokes in an upward motion while staying as close to the face as possible. This is more effective than long or circular motions which can irritate sensitive areas such as under your neck and chin.
  • Rinse often between passes and always use cold water on a fresh shaver head post-shave. It helps soothe any irritation from shaving allowing less ingrown hair over time!

-Finally, don’t forget about after-shave care After-shave is important for soothing any irritation, protecting the skin, and making it easier to achieve a closer shave. Braun series shavers use alcohol-free after-shaves so you won’t have to worry about your face feeling dried out or tight after shaving!
