The hairy, Neanderthal, manly man is fast becoming a thing of the past and more and more men are now opting for the trimmed look that shows they take care in their appearance. It’s no surprise, therefore, that there has been a sharp increase in a number of body groomers claiming to be next best thing!

 

With so many male grooming products now available, it can be difficult to know which one to choose, and which one will suit you the best. But fear not, we’re here to help and this article will run you through the top 5 body groomers so you can make an informed decision about the best one for you.

 

Which one to choose!

 

We’ve scoured the internet and used personal experience to deliver what we feel are the five best body groomers out there currently for men on the market. They combine value for money with function and comfort and are all designed to give you that trimmed and well cared for look.

1.Philips Norelco Body Groom Series 7100

The Phillips body grooming series is a great all-rounder in terms of body hair trimming and offers an impressive array of features for your convenience. The body trimmer is suitable for grooming everywhere from your face to your legs and the fact that you can use it in the shower provides an added bonus.

 

You can use one of the trimmer’s 5 different length settings to get the perfect look and its 50-minute cordless battery life means you can take it on the go for weekends away or holidays.

 

2. Mangroomer Ultimate Pro Back Shaver

The Mangroomer is a more specialized product, focusing on achieving and maintaining a smooth back as a hairy back is rarely a good look for anyone, just ask the ladies! 2 interchangeable shaving heads let you get a clean cut every time, depending on the length of your back hair, and its quick charge battery feature is perfect if you need to quickly trim and are in a hurry.

 

Its flex-neck ensures that you don’t miss any bits and the shaver fits perfectly around the contours of your back ensuring a clean and even shave every time you use it.

 

3. Remington PG525 Body Groomer Kit

If you would like a more detailed trim for your face and body hair, the Remington could be a great option with its detail trimmer and 8 different attachments! 70 minutes of cordless battery time makes this option the best in terms of battery life and it’s also the cheaper and 5 options we’ve highlights. A great all rounder!

 

4. Braun Cruzer 6 Body Shaver

This product is unique as it boasts a hair trimmer, as well as a wet body shaver for all over body grooming. It can be used in the shower and has 3 different length settings for if you want an all in one trimmer and shaver, the Braun could be a good choice!

 

5. Panasonic ER-GB40-S

This option is great for hair and beard trimming with 19 different hair lengths for giving yourself an easy summer haircut to trimming your beard and keeping it in tip top condition! The battery lasts up to 50 minutes so is about standard for a body groomer and if you’re looking for more hair trimming than body hair trimming, the different length settings may mean this one could be a good choice.

1.Phillips Norelco Body Groom Series 7100

The Philips Norelco is the newest in their body groom series and offers a series of impressive features! It has a host of good reviews on the internet from everything from Amazon to YouTube.

 

An extra long power cord means it’s convenient to plug in and shave which can be a problem with a lot of groomers. The head pivots 360 degrees and so follows the contours of your body with a fully removable head for cleaning and convenient packaging that isn’t too hard to get into – a rarity these days!

 

The power is also pretty impressive! Check this video review out of the Philips Norelco and hear that roar! The author of the video considers this one of the best body groomers available today and Amazon reviews show consistently high ratings for this product.

 

Reviews comment on how easy the product is to use, and how safe, especially for trimming/shaving down low which can be a tricky terrain to navigate!

 

Things we liked:

  • Safe and reliable trim everywhere
  • Powerful motor for quick shaving
  • 360-degree pivoting head for easy shaving

 

Things we didn’t like:

  • The battery doesn’t seem to last that long and can lose charge over time
  • Charging stand is bulky
  • Power cord can be too long for some people and get annoying

2. Mangroomer Ultimate Pro Back Shaver

 

Back hair can be a problem for men, especially as they get older. It can be a little unsightly when you take your top off by the swimming pool and a little embarrassing, to say the least!

 

The ladies all say…take it off! The Mangroomer Ultimate Pro Back Shaver can be a great way to get rid of all that unsightly back hair.

 

A fast, effective and less painful way of getting rid of back hair in comparison to waxing! (Ouch) comes from this, and various Amazon and google reviews bring up generally good comments in response to the Mangroomer.

 

Comments were made on how easy it was to clean the Mangroomer and maintain the look once you had started shaving your back. The rechargeable batteries were also a hit and great selling point.

 

Things we liked:

  • Easy to clean
  • Fast and effective compared to waxing
  • Easy rechargeable batteries

 

Things we didn’t like:

  • Trimmer found to be useful but foil head can deteriorate quickly
  • Questionable battery life over time
  • Still difficult to reach some areas of the back even with the Mangroomer

 

3. Remington PG525

 

Again, this is a product that ranks highly on Amazon with a lot of 5* ratings commenting on how small, yet powerful the device is. This seems to be a product that does exactly what is says. The packaging is small and compact as is the trimmer itself and the fact that is has a lithium battery means it has no memory. Therefore you can charge it at any point and it won’t run the battery down. The unit has a 60-minute running time and a 4 hour charge time which is a little long compared to other units. It does offer a 5-minute quick charge if you’re in a rush, however.

 

This great video review shows a good overview of the product and its main positives as well as a few flaws. The head comes off easily for quick and hassle free cleaning but a few people have commented on the bulky charging stand and how they have seen better designs.

 

Things we like:

  • Small, compact design
  • Lithium battery for longevity
  • 60-minute running time

 

Things we didn’t like:

  • Bulky charging stand
  • Longer than usual charging time
  • Foil shaving head fails to get a close shave sometimes.

4. Braun Cruzer 6

 

Another Amazon best seller, this product is helpful as an all-round body trimmer and great for `manscaping` those hard to reach or sensitive areas. Some reviews note how the design feels a little odd in the hand and that the attachments are a little short for some people’s tastes.

 

Overall, however, the reviews are positive and great for those who like a close shave with extra-small trimming teeth of just 1mm. The fact it is waterproof and has a powerful motor attached for fast trimming is also a plus point for many people.

 

Things we like:

  • Micro shaver gives a very close cut
  • Waterproof so can shave and trim in the shower
  • Easily packaged and convenient to use

 

Things we don’t like:

  • No in between sizes for people who like a close trim
  • Can feel bulky in the hand
  • Power station is quite large and bulky

 

5. Panasonic ER-GB40-S 19

 

With 19 trim settings, the Panasonic can be a good choice for those who like a precise cut when trimming their hair or body grooming. Reviews generally agree that the product is good value, easy to maintain and the easy to twist adjustment means you can get every angle on your body.

 

The packaging seems pretty hefty for a body groomer but the charging point is ergonomic and you simply have to slot the groomer into the charging point, no cables needed! The Panasonic is also very easy to clean and comes with a tiny brush to get rid of cut hair as well as oil to maintain the razors.

 

Things we like:

  • The charging cradle is easy to use and ergonomic
  • Easy to clean ready for next time
  • Feels good in your hand and able to reach difficult areas

 

Things we don’t like:

  • Hefty packaging
  • Hard to tell when the trimmer is charged
  • Not as many adjustable settings as other models

 

Value for money

 

1. What makes good value for money?

 

There are a number of things to consider when you choose which body groomer is for you in terms of value for money.

 

  • The longevity of the product is very important and how well the product ages play a big role.
  • The initial cost of the product compared to how long it lasts on average is also very important.
  • Does the product do what it says? All these products trim body hair which can have numerous health benefits but some have more adjustments than others
  • How easy is it to charge? Is there a quick charge setting? If you’re in a rush do you have to wait for hours to use it?
  • Look for the charging time, and battery life. Does it take hours to charge, but last less than an hour?
  • Is it safe and comfortable? If you’re looking to trim delicate areas, be sure that the body groomer is comfortable to use in these areas
