So, you think you’ve finally mastered your grooming, huh? You’ve got a nice hair brush, perhaps a soothing beard grooming kit and maybe some skin-polishing facial scrubs or other outstanding men’s skincare products. But if you’re not keeping your body hair in check with one of the best body groomers, you’ve got a ways to go.
First thing’s first: If you (or your partner) love a hairy bod, all the power to you. But body hair is in many ways just like the hair on your head, and sometimes it could use a little trimming and grooming to keep it in line and keep you looking as put together as you can be, especially when some clothes come off.
So if taking your body grooming to the next level sounds like something you’re interested in, it’s high time you picked up one of the best body groomers.
A body groomer, or body hair trimmer, is basically just a trimmer for body hair. While many electric shavers and trimmers are designed to be used all over your body, just because you could do something, doesn’t mean that you should.
While it’s not exactly unsanitary to use the same trimmer or groomer on your hair, beard and body, do you really want the same trimmer on your face that was only yesterday trimming your nether regions or long leg hair? Maybe, but that’s why we recommend picking up a dedicated body groomer.
We’ve gone ahead and rounded up some of the best body groomers out there to help get you started.
We’ve got a few options meant for head, beard and body because they are solid groomers (though again, we recommend designating a tool just for body grooming), specialty body groomers designed for manscaping and a tool or two for those hard-to-reach hairy spots like those on your back.
So check out some of the best body groomers below and consider how it might feel to be a nicely groomed teen pup instead of a full-on teen wolf.
1. Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7000
Who else but Philips Norelco could make one of the best body groomers out there. The Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7000 is a no-brainer if you’re looking for a dedicated body groomer.
This body groomer features two heads, one with a foil shaver for close shaving and one with an adjustable guard for trimming, which makes transitioning between trimming and shaving as easy as flipping the groomer over. Rounded blades minimize cuts and if you want to take it in the shower to minimize cuts further, go right ahead because the body groomer is shower-safe.
While we wish every groomer would run longer and with less charging time — this body groomer runs for 80 minutes on an hour’s charge — that’s not really necessary in this category and the Philips Norelco is one of the best body groomers in every other way that matters.
2. Meridian Grooming Trimmer
If you’re looking for one of the most versatile body groomers on the market, let us introduce you to the Meridian Grooming Trimmer. Designed specifically with trimming below the belt in mind, the Meridian groomer works just as well on long arm hairs as it does on yours most important, sensitive parts.
The trimmer is fully waterproof, with a 90-minute run time on a full charge, and includes two guide combs so you can get the hair lengths you’re looking for.
To get the full Meridian experience, we recommend going for Meridian’s The Comfort Package. In the package, you get the trimmer and two guide combs, a replacement blade, Meridian’s citrus-scent ball spray and Meridian’s The Brief underwear, which SPY certified as some of the comfiest underwear on the planet.
3. Philips Norelco OneBlade Face + Body Electric Trimmer
Yup, it’s Philips Norelco for the win once again. The Philips Norelco OneBlade Face + Body Electric Trimmer has been one of the most popular groomers on Amazon for a long time, racking up over 25,000 five star reviews. It’s rechargeable, easy to use wet or dry, not too big or bulky, functional in the shower and, most importantly, relatively cheap for a tool that seems to work so fast and so well.
4. Remington PG525 Body Groomer Kit
For a legit-cheap body groomer that can do it all, the Remington PG525 Body Groomer Kit. It’s got a powerful motor and battery as well as sharp steel blades. It is also a bit clunky and might not last through the two-year limited warranty in some cases, but it’s fairly priced and comes with an attachment for every grooming need you might have, including a nose trimmer, foil shaver and vertical body hair trimmer.
5. Panasonic Electric Body Groomer
For an all-around great body groomer with a neat design twist, check out the Panasonic Electric Body Groomer.
Unlike most body groomers that basically resemble trimmers for your beard and hair, the Panasonic body groomer has a V-shaped head that can make trimming harder-to-reach areas easier. The blades also have wide, rounded edges that make accidentally nicking yourself less likely too.
Throw in your expected features and accessories, such as additional trimmer attachments, waterproofness, a rechargeable battery and a generally ergonomic and sturdy body, and you can see what’s so appealing about Panasonic’s body groomer.
6. Manscaped Electric Groin Hair Trimmer, The Lawn Mower
BEST FOR PUBIC AREA
If you’ve never thought about trimming your ball and pubic area, you owe some folks some apologies. Nothing says “I’m ready for playtime” like well-groomed family jewels and that’s exactly the situation the Manscaped Electric Groin Hair Trimmer The Lawn Mower seeks to prepare you for.
It’s cordless, waterproof, rechargeable for a 90-minute runtime and features soft ceramic blades to ensure the only cutting going on is intentional. It’s also pretty ergonomic and easy to maneuver and comes with an adjustable guard so you can go for a dignified forest look or the field-of-small-bushes look.
OK, so those aren’t real looks, but the point is with the Manscaped groin and body groomer, you’ll be able to get your body hair looking however you want it to look.
7. BaKblade 2.0 Plus Back Shaver
BEST BACK SHAVER
Ah, the back, the trickiest part on the body to itch and shave. That’s where a great back shaver like the BaKblade 2.0 Plus Back Shaver can help. The BaKblade is basically a bendy back scratcher except instead of claws to scratch that itch, it’s got razor blades to shave your back.
It features an 18-inch retractable handle and uses two layers of blades so as long as you’re running the shaver in general hair areas, you’ll be able to shave some off.
Unfortunately, the head isn’t flexible, which can make getting every spot a little more difficult, but if you adjust the angle of the handle and shave with your back toward a mirror, we think you’ll manage just fine.
8. Mangroomer Platinum Pro Electric Back Shaver
BEST ELECTRIC BACK SHAVER
A great alternative for taming that wild back hair, the Mangroomer Platinum Pro Electric Back Shaver is basically a traditional electric shaver in the shape of a BaKblade shaver.
Instead of a basic bendable plastic handle, you get a chunkier bendable handle to accommodate the lithium battery and shaving machinery. The handle is also lockable, so you can lock a shave angle in place, and the body groomer comes with three different attachment heads: a foil shaver for short hair and upkeep, a 1.8-inch-wide head for detailing and a 2.7-inch-wide head for hitting larger areas and longer hairs.
