In-depth Review of the 8 Best Body Groomers for Men
Knowledge is power and this in-depth reviews of the best body groomers in the market will give you all the information you need to make an informed decision before you make that purchase.
The Body Groom series from Philips is designed for all your shaving needs below the neck. The device works perfectly for this purpose and will consistently give you a quality shave. Right off the box, you will need to charge the body groomer using the supplied charger for a few hours. The device is visually reminiscent of greatly designed common razors and has several settings which one can vary according to the desired length. From the first use, you will realize that this body groomer is gentle but very thorough in removing body hairs.
Even in the most sensitive parts of the male body, you will not experience any problems especially with cuts like is common with other devices. What’s more, even exact edge gradients are possible with this body groomer. If you are looking to style the chest hairs and do not want to eliminate them altogether, this is the groomer for you. One feature that really sets this body groomer apart from the rest is the fact that it is completely waterproof. The groomer can be easily rinsed with water while in the shower. An absolutely great device for all parts below the neck, especially the most vulnerable and sensitive areas of the body.
- It as a dual-sided design lets you trim and shave (below the neck) with just one product.
- This 3-D pivoting shaving head prevents nicks and cuts while capturing long and short hairs in a single stroke.
- This can be built-in body trimming comb with 5 length settings comfortably glides over the skin while trimming even the thickest hair.
- It comes with a water-resistant casing and materials. Use wet (in the shower) or dry.
- Ergonomic design equipped with soft rubber side panels and buttons provides a secure, comfortable grip in both wet and dry conditions.
This device is similar to the Body Groom Pro and while it does not have the dual end, there is the convenient inclusion of a back extender.
It is a middle of the range body groomer within the Philips stable that has a lot of the features of the Bodygroom Pro and also a number of additional features.
When compared with the Bodygroom Pro, the Bodygroom Plus is different in terms of the following:
- The different shape that is as ergonomic as that of the Bodygroom Pro.
- Does not have the ability to use both sides.
- The head does not have the 3D Pivoting feature.
- The number of attachment head is less, with the Bodygroom Plus having two fewer attachments as compared to the Bodygroom Pro’s five.
- People with back hairs will appreciate the fact that the Bodygroom Plus comes with a back-extender, something that the Bodygroom Pro does not have.
In addition to the above features, the Philips Norelco Bodygroom Plus comes with the following features as standard:
- Straight Shaving or trimming without trimmer attachment with 3 different trimmer attachments for any desired hair length (3/5/7 mm).
- Battery operation: 50 minutes of shaving time / 8 hours of charging time.
- Maintenance-free, corrosion-resistant chrome steel knife and anti-allergic foil.
- 100% waterproof – can also be used in the shower.
- LED charging indicator, ergonomic charging station.
Though it can be described as the most economical in the series, the Philips Norelco Bodygroom is still a high-quality device and features the same high-quality workmanship that Philips is known for. It is shaped differently from both the Bodygroom Pro and Bodygroom Plus. However, the shape is comfortable to use and feels good on the hand. The Bodygroom is a one-sided shave that does not have a pivoting head and only three attachments instead of five.
The machine comes with the following features as standard:
- Ability to trim and shave hard to reach body parts comfortably.
- Rounded ends to give maximum comfort on the skin.
- 100% waterproof and can be used in the bathroom.
- Three length settings for different body hair lengths.
- Docking station and storage included as accessories.
- 8hrs charging time for 5 hours of use.
At the discounted price you will, of course, expect some compromises and the battery life is the most glaring one. At least the device comes with a back extender which is a useful tool for people with hairy backs.
Precision designed to easily maintain your individual look and style at home and on the go, the all-in-one Panasonic ER-GB80-S Men’s Cordless/Corded Body & Beard Trimmer and Hair Clipper exceed the highest standards of trimmer and clipper quality. Until recently I used the BaByliss E960E. After a short time the Battery level began to go haywire (ran up and down, no matter how busy), the screw for adjusting the length was constantly loose (at times it was 3mm, other times 2mm) In short: I was dissatisfied.
- You only have 2 attachments for all standard lengths. Very comfortable, because you do not have to constantly look for the correct attachment.
- The battery status indicator works. So you are never in danger of losing juice in the middle of a shave
- The shavers are pleasantly rounded. A tweet and hooks I had not until then.
- Cleaning under running water.
- The trimmer works fine. You will only need a small mirror to see how well this trimmer works on your edges.
- The workmanship and the materials look expensive, there are no unsightly gaps and nothing creaks and cracks.
Combines Fusion5 ProGlide blades and a Braun-engineered trimmer to trim evenly, shave closely, shape and edge. Fits all Gillette Fusion blade refills. Turn the razor blade around to edge and create crisp, defined lines.
- 3-in-1 shaver for trimming, shaving and styling contours.
- Trimming using technology from Braun: Includes 3 combs for different hair lengths.
- Shaving Fusion ProGlide Power: The most advanced blade * Gillette (4 * main blades vs. Fusion).
- Contours style with the precise contours Blade: Designed for sharp, defined lines.
- Contents: 1 Trimmer, 1 ProGlide Power Blade, 3 combs, 1 battery and 1 Organizer, waterproof.
I have added myself this shaver because of the great reviews and the price. The Gillette blades as usual cut perfectly and accurately without tugging on the skin. The beard trimmer also performs very thoroughly and evenly (though one must often go over the same spot, but for the price that is perfectly adequate). Plastic components of various lengths keep the shaver very stable
Unfortunately, the plastic is so soft that after a few weeks there is evidence of tearing which lead to devaluation of the device in the eyes of many customers. Despite this defect, the device is still useable as the crack is very small to make a difference in functionality
The second issue concerns the battery. The body groomer does a good job but only as long as the battery has charged, which unfortunately does not last longer than three uses. So for good performance, it is advisable to change the battery every two months. If you want a full charge at each shave, you might be forced to replace the battery every month.
In conclusion, it is a good device that delivers good results if you can live with the plastic composition and battery. The trimmer would be perfect were it a size larger which means it would be usable with main and would have higher quality combs with more flexible length settings.
This product is really first class. In short – it works perfectly and you can easily shave everywhere you have to shave. By adjusting the angle and curvature (concave or convex, depending on where you firmly screwed the razor) is determined for each of the optimal position of the shaver. I was very pleasantly surprised by the very excellent (material) quality of the product. It looks and feels very stable and of high quality and is definitely not made of cheap plastic. As a result of using high-quality plastic exclusively, the product consists only of screws, which I think will make this product last a long time.
- Shaver with three blades.
- Extension bracket with screwed shaver holder.
- Extra shaver holder for a smaller shaver.
- Rubber bushing for holding the shaver in place.
- Plastic deformable brush with a foam head.
The wide range of angles that the Mangroomer Ultimate Pro can achieve makes it ideal for the back as it easily follows the contours without a problem. No matter what the length of the bush on your back, the Mangroomer Ultimate Pro will easily tackle it thanks to the patented Power Burst button The machine comes with two types of shaving heads depending on the size and region to be shaved. For the longer hairs, the Mangroomer Ultimate Pro has a 1.8-inch shaving blade that is able to deal with wider areas fast. If you want to keep the hair short or shave it completely, there is the additional foil body groomer bi-directional head.
Whether you have a long or short back, the handle can easily be extended or reduced and then locked in the preferred length. You are also able to set the angle of the shaver using the Easy Push Lock Button. As can be seen with the other reviews, battery charging duration, and charge life can be an issue with many shavers. The Mangroomer Ultimate Pro comes with a fast-charging charger unit with a clear level indicator to let you know when best to charge. If you have always found it a real burden to move around with a bushy back, the Mangroomer Ultimate Pro Back Shaver is a Godsend. The sheer simplicity with which you will achieve a clean-shaven look will knock you off your feet. Many people have struggled with back hair for a long time and have resorted to the unbearable waxing procedures, this is the best solution as it is fast and efficient.
Many small details show that the developers of the Mangroomer Ultimate Pro Back Shaver have really upped their game and have been thinking of the best features. For example, the inclusion of the screws and of course the screw head which is provided with a grid, which means the clamping set cannot shift or change under pressure. Thus, it is not necessary to tighten the screws too tightly. The ergonomic handle is another example of very good quality. Even the foaming brush is well done and can be reshaped by means of boiling water and be adapted to really reach to any location of the body.
This device is perfect for shaving of pubic areas. It’s designed to access those hard to reach and sensitive regions of the body in order to get the best shave possible. These include the underarms and groin areas of the body.
It can be very difficult using a normal groomer to cut the hairs around the pubic areas because of the large head size of the devices. Moreover, the delicate nature of the skin and organs make it necessary to have a tool that can manoeuver the folds and creases easily without causing any damage.
It is especially useful for the minor touch-ups in situations where you require a quick shave before you go on that trip. As always, shaving these areas of the body requires the use of the right pre and aftershave products to prevent discomfort and infections.
This trimmer is ideal for trimming ear hairs, nose hairs, eyebrows and for shaving of the pubic hairs. While the trimmer has its limitations when it comes to body grooming, it does have some utility for a specific number of functions.
- Multi-Purpose Trimmer, Detachable rotary and vertical head for the most versatile pen trimmer.
- Eyebrow Trimming, Eyebrow guide comb fits over the vertical head.
- It as a Premium Feel with a High-quality anodized aluminum casing.
- It is suitable for both Wet/Dry Use and specially designed for use in and out of the shower.
It should be a prominent part of every man’s grooming arsenal as it does a good job of trimming the nose, ears and neck hairs as well as pubic hairs. The Wahl Micro Groomsman is also useful as a pre-shaving tool to get rid of the longer hairs before going for the full shave.
It is a good device that delivers good results if you can live with the plastic composition and battery. The trimmer would be perfect were it a size larger which means it would be usable with main and would have higher quality combs with more flexible length settings.
