Gear That Makes Mornings Less Miserable

BraunBraun Series 7 Pulsonic Shaver ($190 @ Amazon.com)
Whether your shadow is five ‘o clock, ten o’clock, or three-hundred-forty-seven o’ clock, it doesn’t stand a chance against the Braun Series 7. The lightweight electric razor has a sensitive flexing head that adapts to the contours of your face while stimulating your skin and plowing through hair thanks to more than 10,000 micro-vibrations per minute. The triple-action-cutting system — including patented Power Comb technology that finds and snips hidden hairs without tugging — spells trouble for your stubble, but not your face. It cleans effortlessly when held under running water and, as the world’s first ENERGY STAR-qualified electric razor, it’ll also, ahem, shave money off of your utility bills.
