Does what it advertises well


I've had a body groomer before but this one is so much better. I love the addition of both trimmers and the removable guard. That was one thing I didn't like about my last body groomer.About me... Hate shaving

Double sided options, trims through thick hair easily

price was a bit more than I wanted to spend

Consumer review by:

Pretty Good


This is the ONLY shaver that has NOT made me break out! I'm very impressed with this fact.

Great for body grooming


Great product overall. I just didnt like the trimmer settings...the lowest is too long. But other than that...awesome product.

both a shaver and a trimmer

trimmer length options

Does exactly what it's designed for.


Regular blade and electric razors are awkward and difficult to use elsewhere on your body.The top of the Bodygroom razor has a foil shaving head with trimmers on both sides. The trimmers have rounded edges so they don't catch or skin, scratch, or hurt....

Doesn't nick, scratch, or hurt. Charges in an hour

Cutter assembly needs to be handled very carefully

Solid Shaver


Item was easy to set up out of the box despite having pages of instructions. Shaver charges quickly and each of the edges gives a close shave. The flexing head can be tricky to remove for cleaning, but would be fine once I did it a few times.About...

Short charging time, close shave, doesn't take up much space

Can be tough to clean the flex head, could use a shorter hair guard

This is an ok trimmer. Nothing spectacular about it. Switched back to regular razors after trying this out.

does a good job


This is my second bodygroom, I think the first died since I always kept it on the charger, be careful of that. Also it seems like they upgraded the battery, this one charges in an hour, the last took like 8.About me... Have sensitive skin, Concerned...

Portable, easy to clean and use


I've been using the Norelco products for a while and they get better and better. The annoying part was having to attach the clippers to the groomer every time.Now, the clippers re built in and I don't have to carry them anymore. It's just the groomer...

Versatile use
