If you’re as obsessed with taming your hair as some guys are, you can quickly amass a huge collection of trimmers, detailer, shavers and other equipment — many of which don’t work very well even at the job for which they’re intended. If you’re serious about beard grooming and manscaping, however, there’s a body groomer available that can effectively replace every tool you have.
With an attachment for every possible use and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that holds a solid charge, the Philips Norelco Multigroom 7100 can easily take the place of a dozen other pieces of equipment. Even better, its performance is superior to most of those other tools too.
Not convinced that this one inexpensive body and beard grooming tool can replace all your others? Here are some details about why I like it so much.
My Body Groomer Review
Versatility is the first word that comes to mind for this product.
This site is about beard grooming, but those of us who like to maintain a nice beard usually take care of the rest of our body hair too. We sometimes cut our own hair, trim our chests, backs and private areas and, of course, make sure there are no stray hairs in our ears or noses. It’s just good grooming.
The Philips Norelco Multigroom 7100 All-In-One Trimmer With 8 attachments — available from Amazon — handles every hair-related task you perform each week and then some. It has a Bodygroom attachment with body trimming comb, a mini-shaver, a detailer, a nose and ear hair trimmer and, of course, a beard and mustache trimmer. There are eight attachments in all, and there are 18 different length settings for the beard and mustache comb. That should be enough versatility for almost any guy.
Even inexperienced users won’t be able to mess up too badly since there’s a special attachment for just about everything.
Even better is the fact that you can fully charge this body groomer in about an hour and get 60 minutes of use time per charge. That gives you more than enough time to do some serious trimming on every part of your body before the battery runs down.
If you forget to charge up, five minutes of charging gets you five minutes of trimming or more. I’ve found that feature helpful more than once. Lithium ion batteries like the one in this unit don’t have a “memory” like older battery types do, so charging before it’s completely run down or charging only a little won’t damage the battery or reduce the length of time you get out of a charge in the future.
Another nice feature of this Norelco body groomer is that it’s completely waterproof — safe for the shower and for cleaning under running water too. You can’t say that about most of the other body groomers out there.
The maker also promotes this model as being hypoallergenic, helping to reduce bumps. The rounded guards are probably as much the reason for that as anything else. The maker claims the blades are made from chromium steel, and I can certainly tell you they’re sharp. That’s what matters.
Perhaps just as nice is the two-year warranty. That helps prove that this is a seriously good device that will last a while. Most body groomer warranties are measured in days, not years.
If you want to be clean shaven one week, maintain consistent stubble the next and then define clean lines around a goatee or beard the next, this model can accommodate your face while doing double duty on all your other body parts too. What other product have you found that can handle all these tasks as well as longer beards too?
While many beard grooming devices won’t last more than a month or two before they clog up, bog down or break completely, this body groomer comes with a two-year warranty from the factory. That helps ensure that you get your money’s worth — even though it isn’t that expensive to begin with.
And let’s face it: There aren’t many products on the market that give you this many choices.
No matter how you decide to you style your facial hair or groom your body hair in the coming weeks, months and years, the Philips Norelco Multigroom 7100 can handle the job. It’s equipped for every style you’ll want to try — and many you’ll never get around to.
