If you’re not into waxing, then shaving and trimming is the next best thing. Proper grooming can go a long way so make sure you’re getting the best body trimmer with this professionally-curated list of electric trimmers.
If looks defined how a product works, then the TRYM II would be the clear winner in this compilation of body trimmers as you’d think that this product will work as good as waxing the unwanted hair. I can’t blame you, the slender, sleek, and clean looks of the TRYM II make it look so professional and understated that at first glance you won’t notice that it’s a hair trimmer. With the TRYM II, you’d proudly stand this up on its dock in the bathroom without the need to hide it under a drawer; it looks so elegant that it could become a centerpiece or a great complement to your bathroom.

The device can be used in a variety of ways such as hair trimming, body hair trimming, as well as mustache and beard trimming. With a durable construction and high-quality blades, you can use the trimmer daily for your grooming needs without fear of it breaking down on you after a couple of uses.

Gillette Fusion ProGlide Styler 3-in-1
From the understated and professional looks of the TRYM II, the Gillette Fusion ProGlide 3-in-1 is the quite the opposite compared to the TRYM II. Presented in a robust stainless steel body studded with rubber grips all around, the Gillette Fusion can stand out in your in your bathroom.
Unlike the TRYM II, the Gillette Fusion does not come with a dock, and it comes water sealed so you can use it while you take a bath while our hands are wet from the shower. The Fusion Proglide includes three different combs for various purposes such as trimming or close shaving. The sturdy yet light housing is designed to be compact and easily maneuverable so you can work with precision as you reach those hard to reach spots.
As Gillette has cleverly named the Fusion ProglideStyler, the Fusion comes from the trimmer’s ability to use its moving blade for trimming and grooming purposes as well as use a variant of Gillette’s 4-bladed razor called the Gillette Fusion Proglide Power. This way, you can use the trimmer to trim hair as well as get a close shave from using razors with the added benefit of an electronic shaver’s convenience.
Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7100
The Philips Bodygroom 7100 is one of those big boy trimmers that look like they can last a lifetime on your bathroom. Designed with a sleek housing that gently curves to accommodate your natural grip as you trim, the Bodygroom 7100 has various tricks up it sleeve to justify its heft in its price tag.
The shaver features a highly-articulate shaving head that can follow the contours of your face especially on your neck where some hairs can prove to be quite tricky to remove. The trimmer features blades that are engineered to prevent scratching the skin which is a typical problem that men face when working with shavers or even razors. The head also features a fine mesh guard that prevents the cutting surface from causing injury and ensure safe operation. The unit is constructed with sturdy and waterproof materials and is properly sealed to be used even in wet conditions such as while showering.
At the bottom of the unit is another motorized trimmer that’s purposely made for trimming purposes in which it has a built-in comb to raise the cutting surface and follow the contours of your face. The trimming end can be adapted with five different combs for different levels of trimming.
The Remington PG525 can fulfill the roles of multiple hair grooming tools with just a simple swap of the adapter. Powered by a lithium-ion battery, it has the power and battery life to be used over and over before needing to be recharged. The PG525 is packaged with a set of 8 attachments to cater to almost every hair grooming task. These grooming tasks include hair trimming, foil shaving, nose hair trimming, ear hair trimming, adding details to your facial hair, getting rid of vertical body hair, as well as your usual beard, stubble, and mustache trimmer.
The blades and heads are designed with convenience in mind that it has a self-sharpening feature, so you get the optimal edge sharpness with every stroke of the trimmer. The package includes the set of 8 interchangeable attachments, an all in one charging stand that could also accommodate the multiple attachments.
The shortcomings of this product are that it is only meant to be used in dry environments and the unit is not water sealed in any way. It makes it unable to be used while in the shower; it may be a small con, but if you’re in a rush and want to multitask, you can’t do it with the PG525. For maintenance, you can remove the attachments and are safe to be rinsed off with running water, and charge time takes 24 hours especially for the first time use.
The Panasonic ER224S is a versatile little cordless shaver. It’s simple, sturdy, and waterproof plus it can do multiple jobs without the need for interchangeable attachments, so you don’t have to fumble around when looking for which attachment to use for a certain task. If adjustability is what you’re looking for, then I can say that the 14 functions of this little all in one body trimmer are always ready at a mere twist of a knob. 14 different roles without having to change the head? What kind of sorcery is this? The answer is simple; the twist knob adjusts the clearance between the blades and the comb which allow it to be used as a beard comb trimmer or as a stubble cleaner in an instant. If you’re looking for a close shave, simply pop out the comb to expose the close detail shaver so you can have sharper looking sideburns and mustaches on the fly.
The body of the trimmer is fully sealed which means you can even use it in the bathtub and not worry about it falling on the water as it’s designed to be fully immersed in water for easy rinsing of the blades. The trimmer is equipped with Panasonic’s set of super sharp high-performance stainless steel blades that are designed to last long and withstand even the toughest of hair.
Mangroomer Ultimate Pro Body Groomer and Trimmer
If you’re a person that has experienced growing thick hair and notice that most of your shavers give up when tackling your tough hair, then the Mangroomer Ultimate Pro Body Groomer and Trimmer is for you. This 2-in-1 has an added function to give it the ability to cut through tough hair with ease. It is thanks to their patented power burst function which ramps up the power for extra cutting performance when faced with thick hair; this makes it perfect for ancient beards that need grooming.
The 2-in-1 design incorporates handy features such as a groomer and a trimmer in one device; all you need to do is flip the unit over, and you’re ready to continue. The head of the shaver is attached to an articulating neck that makes it possible to achieve close shaves by conforming to the shape of your body. Also, like the Panasonic ER224S, it has an all in one head that can be easily adjusted for on the fly switching of grooming tasks. So there’s no need to look for the right attachment for the right job, you’ve got all you need in your hand. However, it only has seven settings compared to the 14 on the Panasonic; which is a disappointing considering the Panasonic costs less than the Mangroomer.
Perched right on the 80 dollar price range, the Panasonic ER-GB80-S has to prove to the world that it can justify the cost with its high-tech features such as having a built-in mode adjustment knob that resembles a camera’s zoom ring and futuristic-looking transparent grooming combs. Panasonic proudly advertises the product as their award-winning electric trimmer but is the ER-GB80-S worth the high price for just a shaver?
That’s the big question right there; it’s just a shaver, but at the same time it’s not. Well, not your ordinary shaver at least. I mean, how often do you encounter a high-tech shaver that costs 80 dollars right? Taking a closer look at the Panasonic ER-GB80-S, you can spot numerous features adapted from the Panasonic ER224S such as the all in one adjustable grooming modes. This dial along with the three easily interchangeable grooming attachments allow the ER-GB80-S to have a total of 39 grooming modes that only some can dream of having!
The housing is ergonomically designed which allows for precision whenever your trimming beards, tidying up mustaches or adding details to your sideburns; the Panasonic ER-GB80-S does it all. If you’re the type to make use of 39 grooming modes, then this product is for you, if you think that this might be overkill, then it’s perfectly understandable.
Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 1100
As the biggest design departure from all of the products highlighted on this body trimmer roundup, the Philips Bodygroom 1100 is compact, lightweight, simple, and easy to use without all the unnecessary gimmicks its more expensive counterparts offer; this is a no-nonsense body trimmer period.
The price of the Bodygroom 1100 is reasonable considering how simple the unit is; it even looks like a regular razor that gained fat at the thighs. Looks aside, the Bodygroom 1100 is what it is plus more. It features a skin protector that avoids the blades from reaching your skin, so you won’t be getting accidental cuts from pressing too hard on your skin. The head is designed with versatility and ease of use in mind; it features a blade that works both ways, so you don’t have to worry about putting the head in the right orientation of the blades to work. Despite how tiny it is, the included 3mm comb can confidently work through longer hair with ease making it the most compact body groomer at a size slightly larger than a powered toothbrush.
The Bodygroom 1100’s package includes the trimmer, an additional comb attachment for longer trimming modes, a free AA sized battery, and an elastic waterproof shower cord for hanging the trimmer while not in use.
Body Trimmers focus on versatility and ease of use because it is often used by men who are in a rush because the reason they bought a powered shaver or hair trimmer in the first place is to breeze through the daily task of properly shaving and maintaining their facial and body hair. Seeing as a traditional razor will take a significant amount of time to do the same job, the next step would be to purchase a powered hair trimmer.
Since its primary task is to add convenience when grooming, always look for the product that offers the most versatility at a reasonable price. If you’re willing to spend more money for an expensive unit, make sure that it can last a long time, and withstand a ton of abuse, so you don’t have to keep buying the same expensive stuff over and over again.
