After 12 hours of research evaluating 35 products, we picked Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7100 as our top choice.
Here's an important truth: women prefer well-groomed men. And that doesn't just mean a well-kept beard and a sleek hair style. While the visible stuff (face, beard, and hair) are an important part of the grooming process, the invisible stuff (body and pubic hair) is no less important!
The truth is:
Women share the same opinion about body and pubic hair: trimmed or totally smooth is better than wild and unkempt. If you want to impress her, it's important to keep your body hair under control.
The good news is:
Thankfully, the best body groomers can help you get the job done. You should have no problem finding a body hair trimmer that works for all the important areas—from head to toe and definitely the midsection and "down under".
So where to begin? You're in luck: we've done the research for you! We've poured over thousands of reviews of the best body groomer products to bring you the best ones.
Whether you're a guy with an overgrowth of body hair or just someone who wants to keep their pubes under control, you'll find our list of the best body groomers contains something for you.
Flexible design, includes wide shaver head, comfortable grip, lightweight, bendable up to 135 degrees in any direction, effective shaving, sharp, decent run time, quick-charge battery, and able to power through coarse hair.
Very long and bulky; not designed for facial hair.
If you're a guy with lots of extra back hair, this trimmer is a must-have. Thanks to its unique design, it will make shaving your own back not only possible, but surprisingly easy.
The shaver itself is reliable, with sharp teeth and a powerful motor that can cut through most hair textures. If you have patches of extra-thick hair, you'll find the "power burst" will trim it with ease. With the 2-inch shave head, you can trim large swaths of back hair at once.
But the real kicker is the flexible design. It has an "elbow" joint that allows you to rotate it up to 135 degrees, making it easy for you to reach your entire back without twisting yourself into knots. The rubber handle is easy to grip securely, though the trimmer is a bit long and bulky. (Definitely not travel-friendly!) Though you only get about 70 minutes of battery life per charge, it does a great job overall!
Battery run out mid-shave? The "quick charge" feature charges the trimmer with just enough battery to finish the job, but without having to wait for hours.
In addition to the extra-wide shave head, the trimmer comes with a narrower, bi-directional head to help you get rid of the shorter hairs in smaller, harder-to-trim areas. It's easy to switch between the heads in a matter of seconds.
The elbow joint of the trimmer is easy to adjust, but it will lock securely in place for a more stable, controlled shave. It folds up to store in your bathroom (not small enough for a toiletry kit, sadly), but the handle is easy to maneuver for a more comprehensive shave.
At $50, this is on the pricier side considering it's a single purpose tool. It's slightly too bulky to use for facial hair grooming, but if you've got a lot of back hair that needs regular trimming, it's definitely a handy item to own!
Effective for facial and body hair trimming, delivers close shave, excellent value, highly versatile, 2-year warranty, comfortable, lightweight, compact, fits in any travel shaving kit, and features multiple attachments for shaving and trimming.
Iffy battery life, and the build quality feels a bit cheap.
If you're looking for a trimmer that can handle your facial hair and body hair, you'll love this Remington bodygroomer. With 8 different attachments to work with, it will be a breeze to keep all of your hair under control.
The battery life on this trimmer is iffy at best—just 50 minutes of cordless run time before it needs charging. However, it's easy to charge and runs very well while the lithium battery is full. The blades are made of durable, rust-resistance stainless steel, with a self-sharpening design that will keep them shaving and trimming efficiently for years to come.
It weighs very little, is comfortable to hold, and is compact enough to fit in your toiletry case. It also comes with a travel pouch to make it easy to take on the go. Though it takes a few hours to fully charge, it's a great trimmer to have for a quick touch-up anywhere on your face or body.
The trimmer comes with 8 attachments for the full-sized trimmer: foil shaver, ear and detail trimmer, hair clipper comb, and three beard and stubble combs for adjustable hair length. If you don't want to go fully smooth, but prefer a bit of controlled hair or stubble, you'll love the versatility these attachments offer.
The trimmer delivers a wonderfully close shave, but with very little risk of nicking or cutting your sensitive bits.
At $20, this is the best-priced trimmer on our list. It may not be the most durable (the build quality feels slightly cheap), but it's still one of the best options if you want a versatile, reliable body groomer.
Braun engineering with Gillette shave heads, wet shave system reduces irritation, smaller teeth ensure fewer nicks, adjustable, precise, high quality, multi-purpose, super smooth and close shave, and waterproof.
Shaving blades will require regular replacements and this is not the most effective trimmer.
If you want to eliminate ALL body hair, not just trim, you'll love what the Cruzer 6 can do. The fine teeth of the shaver are highly efficient at dealing with hair in sensitive areas while reducing nicks and cuts. Thanks to the power of the German-engineered motor, the trimmer will cut through just about any texture or thickness of hair.
The trimmer is designed for a wet/dry shave, meaning it's fully waterproof and can be used in the shower. It delivers a beautifully close shave, though the trimming settings aren't as efficient. The Gillette shave heads are very high quality, but you will need to replace them regularly. You'll find it's an amazing trimmer to help reduce irritation and get rid of your body hair like a boss!
The trimmer comes with three adjustable combs, though there isn't as much versatility as you might like. The Gillette five-blade shaver head will slice through coarse and thick hairs with ease. The multiple attachments (shaver, trimmer, combs, etc.) are easy to change out, making for a quick shave.
Though it's designed for both trimming and shaving, it truly shines as a razor. The battery life isn't stellar, and the lack of swivel head means it's tough to trim in nooks and crannies. However, thanks to the powerful motor, you can shave off all your body hair with ease!
At $80, this is one of the priciest body trimmers on our list. It delivers an amazing quality shave but only a decent quality trim—a great option mainly for guys who want total hairlessness.
Wet/dry use, lightweight, multiple attachments offer excellent versatility, decent battery life, quick charging time, feels solid and reliable, and handles your face and body efficiently.
Higher risk of nicks and cuts.
If you want a trimmer that can slice through thick, coarse pubic hair, you'll want to give this one a try. Thanks to its powerful motor and sharp teeth, it will deal with pretty much any hair texture with ease. Be warned: the teeth are spaced far apart, so there is a higher risk of nicking or cutting sensitive skin. However, with a bit of practice, you'll find it's one of the best shavers for an efficient trim.
The shaver comes with a hypoallergenic foil head that is flexible and easy to maneuver into the hard-to-reach spots. It feels solid in your hand, runs well, and has a decent battery life. Best of all, it takes just 1 hour to charge the shaver to full!
The wet/dry design means this shaver can be used in the shower, as it's fully waterproof. For more versatility, you can choose from the 18 settings on the beard comb and hairclipper comb or the 10 settings on the body comb. With a full-size and a detailed trimmer, you have total control if you want to shape, trim, or totally remove your pubic hair.
The shaver is wonderfully easy to clean, with a head that you can quickly pop off to rinse out. Whether you shave dry or with gel, lotion, or cream, this is the trimmer to use for dealing with thicker, coarse pubic hair.
At $50, this is slightly on the pricier side. However, given its efficiency at dealing with facial, body, and pubic hair, it's a versatile shaver that gets the job done.
Compact, beautifully portable, Braun-engineered technology, Gilette razor blades, durable, waterproof, effective for all body hair, and affordable.
Not the most effective trimmer and not rechargeable.
If you're looking for durability and high performance, few trimmers can compete with Braun's German engineering. Braun designed and built the trimmer head, while Gillette (arguably the best for razor heads) designed the shaving head. Together, the two manufacturers deliver excellent performance in this compact trimmer.
The size and design of the trimmer/shaver combo makes it a good option for those who travel. It's a fairly compact option, one that will fit into any bag or toiletry kit. However, be warned: it uses a AA battery rather than a built-in battery pack. This means you'll have to replace the batteries yourself, or use third-party rechargeable. Thankfully, you get excellent battery life from each AA battery you use.
The groomer is great for trimming body hair, but it suffers with thicker facial (and some very coarse pubic) hair. You'll find it's excellent for a smooth, close shave, however. Thanks to the powerful Braun trimmer and highly effective Gillette razor heads, you'll end up with ZERO hair on your body with very little effort.
The shaver is water-resistant and can be used in the shower as well as for dry shaving. The slim design is ergonomic and comfortable to hold, and the shaver includes Gillette's most advanced razor blades for a highly close shave. It's fully dermatologist-tested and approved, ideal for men with sensitive skin.
The trimmer comes with three combs to give you more control over body hair length, as well as a precision edging blade to help you clean up your facial hair. It's great for both body and facial hair provided you want to keep things short or hairless. It's not as wide as other razors and trimmers, so it will require a bit more time for your manscaping.
At just under $23, this is a very well-priced body trimmer and razor combo. The combined engineering of Braun and Gilette ensures you get a reliable, highly versatile body groomer that's built to last for years to come.
Top-rated performance, great for sensitive/delicate areas, maneuverable, powerful, comfortable grip, precise, beautifully close shave, wet and dry shave, highly versatile, contouring heads get into every nook and cranny, auto-clean function, and combination shaver and trimmer.
Not the easiest to clean manually and charging can be difficult.
If you're looking for the best body groomer on the market, the Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7100 can't be beat! It's a high-performance, powerful, and versatile trimmer that delivers a wonderfully close shave. Thanks to the shaving head on one end and the trimmer on the other, you'll be able to deal with all your body hair using one handy tool.
The trimmer is water-resistant, designed to use for both wet and dry shaving. You can use it with shower gel, shaving foam, or just warm water, and the trimmer can be used in the shower or on dry skin. The ergonomic design makes it comfortable to grip and use. The soft rubber panels and buttons will prevent it from slipping out of soapy hands. For those with sensitive skin, the shave head comes with hypoallergenic materials.
The 7100 delivers 120 minutes of consistent use. Though the charging dock can be a bit tough to use, once you get the hang of it you'll find it's highly efficient—replenishing the battery in an hour. Cleaning the shaving head is easy, but the trimmer head can be a bit challenging to deal with.
One of the main selling points of this shaver is the 8-direction contouring heads. The fact that it can flex and bend in so many directions makes it perfect for shaving and trimming in all those nooks and crannies. The V-track precision blades of the shave head give you a beautifully close shave, and the AquaTec technology makes it compatible with both wet and dry shaving.
The dual-ended trimmer has a way to trim/cut hair and shave it completely off. The trimmer head can be adjusted to any of the five settings, offering total control over body hair length. Whether you want to go totally smooth or just tidy up your body hair, you'll find this is easily the best trimmer overall.
At $60, this is a VERY well-priced trimmer. It delivers the performance you need for total body shaving, reliability, durability, and user-friendly functions at a beautiful price tag.
Maintaining one’s appearance and style can mean different things to different people. For some, it can be as simple as combing one’s hair every morning. For others, it can be as complex as scheduling an appointment with their trainers or healthcare providers. But I think every guy can agree that to some extent, a huge part of maintaining their appearance means taking care of unruly and unwanted facial and/or body hair.
Bushy beards, messy man-buns, and body hair here and there are still very much the trend today. You might think that that look is easy to maintain (since you just have to let the hair grow), but is it really that easy?
Men’s grooming (also called manscaping by some) is something that involves patience, time, money, and quality equipment. It’s something that helps build lasting, positive impressions from strangers and friends alike. It’s also something that, when not done right, can be damaging and even potentially dangerous.
If you’re new to the term grooming, it simply means a guy taking care of his bodily and facial hair. It includes hair removal, shaving, styling, and trimming of any unwanted or excess hairs. And some people now invest in shaving and grooming sets, sugaring, and waxing. Granted, some guys go to their trusted barbers and professionals to get the job done, but frankly, that costs more money than buying your own grooming set.
We’re getting ahead of ourselves here. The great question, really, is this: is it really necessary to do this and get your own grooming set? Well, it really depends on the amount of body and facial hair you can handle at any given time. Some guys do just great with a lot of body hair, while some might participate in physical activities, like swimming or wrestling, that require them to be more aerodynamic than the next person. Some guys can handle bushy beards while some can’t stand hairy forearms. It’s all a matter of personal preference.
Still, some others choose to trim and maintain their body hair to prevent body odor. As we know, bacteria accumulates in wet or damp conditions. Hair can trap sweat and this damp environment can be a breeding ground for bacteria that cause body odor. That’s also a reason why some guys choose to trim their hair.
No matter what you decide on, there are a lot of services and products out there that can help you make a great impression. Now, if you decided on getting your own grooming set, we’ve got you covered. Keep reading so you’ll know how to choose the best body groomer for all your needs.
There are several things you have to keep in mind when choosing your new grooming set. Below are the main things you have to look for in a great grooming set.
Congratulations! Now you bought your own grooming set. How should you go about it? Well, the internet is a vast place, and you can get a lot of tutorials online. But if it were up to us, we’d like to share some tips on how to get started with your first attempt at grooming.
Yes, you can. But that doesn’t mean you should. Using razors will irritate and make your skin dry. Best go with grooming/trimming sets with attachments specifically designed to go along the natural contours of your body. Plus, using a tiny handheld razor is a pain to use on your entire body, and buying several packs every week can be more expensive in the long run.
Body groomers are designed to deal with mostly flat areas of your body, like your back and your chest. While the attachments might be designed to do detail work on curved areas of the body, do you really want to shave your face with the same thing that shaved your foot?
There’s a lot of debate on this, and science tends to lean toward the “no”. But since you’re dealing with grooming here, you’re trying to eliminate unwanted hairs regardless of their thickness and speed at growing back.
Yes, you should. But you should try consulting the care instructions provided with the set first before you do your own cleaning and maintenance of your grooming set. Nice question.
Another great question. Again, it really depends on which set you got, but ultimately, you’d want to replace the heads or some attachments at least every 6-12 months, depending on the frequency and level of use. On a side note, you should also check if replacement heads and attachments are available online or in shops near you.
Body grooming is an art and a science, but it doesn’t have to be incomprehensible. There are a lot of great products and sets out there in the market, and we recommend that you decide on what’s best for you. As always, good luck!
