After extensively using the Braun Beard Trimmer 3, I can say it’s a basic and straightforward grooming tool, perfect for beginners like me who are just getting into trimming. The design is simple, with easy one-button operation and a lightweight build that makes handling a breeze. The adjustable trimmer guard is handy, allowing me to achieve different beard lengths from 1mm to 10mm with precision. However, being someone who prefers a longer beard, I found the maximum length limitation of 10mm a bit disappointing. On the bright side, the detachable blade design makes cleaning and oiling a cinch, ensuring hassle-free maintenance. At just $25, the Braun Beard Trimmer 3 offers decent value, but I did notice that the stamped stainless steel blade might not hold up as well over time. Overall, as a beginner, I found this trimmer to be a budget-friendly and reliable option for my basic grooming needs.


Design and Features

The Braun Beard Trimmer 3 showcases a minimalist design with one button operation and single charge indicator light. It’s lightweight and very quiet compared to most trimmers.

The trimmer’s key feature lies in its adjustable guard, offering a limited overall range but a good number of trimming lengths from 1mm to 10mm with half-millimeter increments in between. This adaptability allows users to achieve shorter beard styles with precision. The limit to 10 mm may be too short for those looking to maintain longer beard styles.

The blade did seem to cut well but I was disappointed to see that Braun uses a stamped stainless steel blade. We have generally found that this style of blade does not stay sharp for very long.

  • Adjustable Trimmer Guard: Versatile guard with precision settings from 1mm to 10mm for desired beard length.

Pros Of The Braun 3 Trimmer

The Braun Beard Trimmer 3 comes with several advantages, making it a suitable choice for beginners seeking a simple grooming experience. Its lightweight and quiet design caters to those new to trimming, offering easy handling and discreet operation. The adjustable trimmer guard allows for precision trimming, but it’s worth noting that the maximum length of 10mm might not suit individuals with longer beard preferences. Maintenance is made easy with the detachable blade and included brush, yet the lack of included oil might inconvenience some users. Priced at $25, the trimmer provides decent value for functionality and performance, making it an affordable option for those with basic grooming needs.

Cons Of The Braun 3 Trimmer

The Braun Beard Trimmer 3 has a few limitations that potential buyers should consider. The maximum length of 10mm may not accommodate longer beard styles, which could be a deal-breaker for those with specific grooming preferences. Additionally, the trimmer does not include oil in the box, requiring users to purchase it separately for proper maintenance. While a minor consideration, the design color choice might not resonate with everyone’s personal preferences. Despite these cons, the trimmer still offers a budget-friendly option for beginners or individuals with basic grooming needs.

Who Is This Trimmer For?

The Series 3 is a suitable option as a first trimmer for a young adult that is just getting started trimming. Its low price point and limited cutting range are a good fit for those trimming very short beards and body hair. To see how it stacks

Who is this trimmer NOT for?

If you have owned a few low priced trimmers and are looking for something nicer, this isn’t it. It also won’t work for those with longer beards or those interested in trimming their own hair.


My Experience

I found the Braun Beard Trimmer 3 sports a simple and ergonomic design, perfect for users seeking an uncomplicated grooming tool. Its is also fairly lightweight compared to other trimmers – while this doesn’t “feel” like quality it can make the trimmer easier to handle. The minimalistic approach focuses on essential features, making it an ideal choice for beginners or those with straightforward grooming needs.

I noticed one of the standout features of the Braun Beard Trimmer 3 is its near-silent operation. This is something to consider if you wake up early before your partner. The quiet motor ensures a discreet and relaxing trimming session, whether you’re at home or on the go.

While the Braun Beard Trimmer 3 excels at catering to most grooming needs, it falls short for those desiring longer beard styles. With a maximum length of 10mm, individuals with preferences beyond this range might find the trimmer limiting.

Value for Money

At an affordable price point of $25 online, the Braun Beard Trimmer 3 delivers outstanding value for its functionality and performance. If you need a decent trimmer on a budget, this trimmer provides a cost-effective solution without too many compromises on quality.


In conclusion, the Braun Beard Trimmer 3 is a good option for those seeking a budget-friendly, no-frills grooming tool. The 3 series is the least expensive in the Braun Beard Trimmer line and has many of the same elements in the more expensive 5 and 7 series. The simple one button design, adjustable trimmer guard, and easy maintenance make it an ideal choice for beginners or individuals looking for a straightforward trimming experience. Priced at just $25, this trimmer offers remarkable value, and is one of the better trimmers at this price point.

The trimmer’s limitations include the relatively small cutting range topping out at 10 mm, its small battery which may limit the lifespan of the product to just a few years and the stamped stainless steel blade which also wouldn’t last more than a few years.
