Guys, let’s face it – the time has come to exit the stone age and enter an era when man actually gives a damn about his appearance. Some call it metro-sexual and that’s fine. They can label it if that makes them feel better. But deep down, guys care about how we look whether we admit it (to you or ourselves) or not.
Bodygrooming for men has been a bit of a pink elephant topic in the past. That is, until now. More and more men are choosing to ‘manscape’ their bodies than ever before and more and more companies are responding with products to make that process easier and more comfortable.
Man-Made Reviews recently had an opportunity to review the Philips Norelco Bodygroom product. Here are our thoughts.
Philips Norelco’s latest male grooming tool has all of the features any man would expect in a groomer, but they also specially designed it for us guys to use. There are two primary timmer heads – one that’s a standard clipper style trimmer with an adjustable length guard built in. I love trimmers with adjustable lengths rather than removable attachments. Changing attachments for different lengths is such a pain! The trimmer head also can be completely removed for easy cleaning of the head and blade once you’re done.
The other end of the device has a unique design that I’ve never seen on any other male grooming trimmer. There’s a pretty standard electric shave head but also a double-bladed clipper to pre-trim any longer hairs before they even make it to the shave head. This means you won’t have to pre-trim any longer hair if you want to save down close to the skin. One pass with the shaving end and you’re done!
Bodygroom – What We Liked
I think it’s about time someone started focusing more on personal care products for men. The assumption that men don’t care about personal appearance is out the window now and it’s time products caught up with modern-day man’s need to look great. The Bodygroom was clearly designed for men and not some product for women that was simply re-branded. Not only is the device sleek, ergonomic and easy to use, but it’s also easy to clean and charges in a hurry (about an hour) as well.
Bodygroom – What We Thought Could Be Improved
The one and only complaint that we had is that the clipper end of the trimmer is a bit small. If you’re a bigger guy and you’ve got some realestate to trim, it may take you a while with the trimmer on the Bodygroom as it’s not nearly as wide as a standard clipper. Thankfully, the built-in battery provides around 50 minutes of use (in our tests, we used ours for over an hour on a single charge), so covering larger areas shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
Bodygroom Price & Value
Priced at around $69 USD, the Bodygroom can easily be added to most guy’s trimming and shaving repitores. The time the device will save you because you won’t have to change trimmers, trimmer head guards or mess around with a corded device are something to consider as well. There may be cheaper shaving devices out there for men, but in our experience you get what you pay for.
