If you’ve had trouble finding the perfect grooming product to keep your private parts looking tidy, you are not alone. Many products on the market simply aren’t designed to be used on your body’s most sensitive areas. Thankfully, there are quite a few pubic hair trimmers that deliver amazing results while keeping irritation to a bare minimum.
Buying Guide for Pubic Hair Trimmers
Why buy a pubic hair trimmer?
There are a number of reasons for you to invest in a pubic hair trimmer. For one, pubic hair trimmers are specially designed for use on your pubic region and genitals, meaning they are much less likely to cause irritation than trimmers designed for other body hair. Additionally, even those who have a multifunctional trimmer may prefer to buy a dedicated one for their pubic hair for obvious sanitary reasons. Lastly, most pubic hair trimmers feature a waterproof design, making them perfect for use in the shower. Just make sure you have a hair catcher over your shower drain to save you from clogging the drain.
What should you look for in a pubic hair trimmer?
- Design: How close will a pubic hair trimmer (and its attachments) allow you to trim your pubic hair? Is it safe to use in the shower? Does it sport a safety-first design that minimizes nicks and irritation? These are all important design considerations to make before you decide which pubic hair trimmer is right for you.
- Power: If your grooming routine ever consists of plowing through thick tufts of coarse hair with your trimmer, a powerful motor is imperative. Even high-quality blades will struggle to cut through thick pubic hair if the motor powering them is sub-par. A powerful motor will also mitigate snags and irritation for a more gentle trim.
- Blade: A powerful motor, however, won’t mean much without a high-quality blade to trim your hair down to size. Ceramic blades are a popular choice for pubic hair trimmers due to their ability to stay cool during long grooming sessions. Stainless steel blades are also another great choice and feature excellent durability as well as rust resistance. Keep in mind, if the trimmer you’re eyeing can have its blades replaced, it’s worthwhile to price replacement blades before you buy.
Is there such a thing as a cut-proof pubic hair trimmer?
Sadly, no pubic hair trimmer or person is perfect, so the possibility of nicking yourself will always exist. This is especially true for those who choose to use a trimmer with a minimalistic guard for a skin-close trim. However, nicks and irritation can be mostly eliminated if you do two things. First, purchase a pubic hair trimmer with a powerful motor, sharp blade, and safety-first design. Secondly, take some time to educate yourself on the how-tos of giving yourself a trim down under. With the right trimmer and correct mindset, your risk of nicking yourself is incredibly low.
MANSCAPED Lawn Mower 3.0
This whisper-quiet trimmer offers plenty of power but is incredibly gentle on sensitive skin.
Pros: If you’re looking for a pubic hair trimmer that can achieve a very close trim in the comfort of a hot shower, the MANSCAPED Lawn Mower 3.0 is for you. This product does the job in fewer passes than other top pubic hair trimmers, thanks to its powerful motor and sharp ceramic blades. Thankfully, it’s also very gentle, in part due to its vibration-dampening design. While you will want to take your time when using this product in order to avoid getting nicked, it’s the best trimmer out there for those who want to trim away any sign of hair from their pubic region.
Cons: Since this trimmer’s adjustable guard only goes from 2 millimeters to 3.5 millimeters, it lacks the versatility of some other public hair trimmers. Also, due to the minimal guard, one can easily nick themselves if haphazardly trimming hair off of loose skin. That being said, nicks and irritation are unlikely to occur if you take your time and follow the product’s instructions.
Bottom Line: Realistically, no men’s grooming product is 100% nick-proof, especially when being used on your most sensitive body regions. That being said, this pubic hair trimmer mitigates the risk of irritation as much as possible thanks to its quality parts while still allowing you to achieve a very close trim. If you’re seeking a discreet, dependable, and effective trimmer, you won’t go wrong with the Lawn Mower 3.0.
Philips Norelco Multigroomer 3000
Featuring an unbeatable price and small assortment of durable attachments, this kit offers great versatility for the price.
Pros: Featuring self-sharpening steel blades and a surprisingly rugged design for its budget-friendly price, this multifunctional trimmer has a lot to offer. It’s powerful enough to plow through thick growths of hair, and its small assortment of attachments offers some flexibility in regards to your ideal length. While this trimmer isn’t waterproof, it’s reasonably easy to clean, thanks to its water-resistant, easy-to-remove attachments. Speaking of attachments, the ear and nose hair trimmer is a great bonus that helps make this kit one of the best values you can find.
Cons: Budget-friendly trimmers tend to have some shortcomings, and this model is no different. For one thing, this trimmer is not waterproof, so those who do most of their grooming in the shower will have to look elsewhere. Additionally, this trimmer’s battery life is fairly mediocre, so don’t expect to get much more than an hour of use after fully charging the device.
Bottom Line: At this product’s price point, most people don’t expect much in terms of performance. In this regard, the Multigroomer 3000 exceeds expectations both in terms of multifunctionality and long-term dependability. That being said, this is not the most powerful trimmer on the market, so it would be wise to be slow and cautious while using this product until you have learned its limitations.
Philips Norelco Multigroomer 7000
This versatile kit includes attachments that give you a great deal of control when trimming your pubic hair.
Pros: The Philips Norelco Multigroomer 7000 sports the same reliable performance as the budget-friendly Multigroomer 3000 but ups the ante considerably thanks to an upgraded battery and wide array of nifty attachments. While you won’t want to use this without an attachment guard, the guards it comes with offer plenty of options in terms of length. After trimming, you can also use the foil shaver and detail attachment to add a touch of style that most trimmers are incapable of.
Cons: Those seeking a dedicated pubic hair trimmer as opposed to a multifunctional grooming kit will probably be turned away by this kit’s numerous attachments, as handy as most of them are. This is especially true since the storage bag this kit arrives with doesn’t offer much in the way of organization, making the entire ensemble a lot to keep track of for those who easily lose things.
Bottom Line: Like the Multigroomer 3000, it’s hard to imagine someone faulting this kit in terms of the value it provides for its price tag. While some may have reservations about using this trimmer on different parts of their body, it’s fairly simple to separate and clean the different attachments so that sanitation is not an issue.
Panasonic Body Hair Trimmer
This gentle trimmer's unique design makes it easy to position around your body's natural contours.
Pros: Featuring a unique design that is easy to handle with added precision, the Panasonic Body Hair Trimmer allows you to trim hair on your body safely and effectively. This is one of the most gentle pubic hair trimmers on the market, and its safety-first design eliminates much of the anxiety that goes with grooming your privates, all while achieving a close trim. This model also scores points for being able to be used in the shower, making it a great pick for those who put a premium on gentleness and precision.
Cons: While this trimmer’s fantastic design and protective guards leave nothing to be desired, its battery is another story. Compared to other products, this trimmer takes a long time to charge but only provides around 40 minutes of run time on a full battery. Thus, those who invest in this trimmer will want to charge it up after every other use to prevent it from dying when they need it the most.
Bottom Line: Despite its sub-par battery, this is definitely a trimmer that a lot of people will love due to its gentle, safety-first design. While you will want to be mindful of what you’re doing when trimming down under, this trimmer makes it much easier to achieve great results while in a hurry without risking a painful nick or snag.
Meridian - The Trimmer
This shower-friendly trimmer stands out for its excellent battery life and vibration-dampening design.
Pros: Featuring a waterproof design and long-lasting battery that can be used over and over again without needing to constantly recharge, The Trimmer is tailor-made to be used on your most sensitive areas. Its flexible and sharp ceramic blade provides a close trim and leaves minimal irritation when used in a controlled manner. This trimmer also scores points for its vibration- and sound-dampening design, making it a stellar choice for those seeking a long-lasting pubic hair trimmer.
Cons: While this product earns an average score in terms of its price, it’s worth noting that its replacement blades are pretty expensive, even when compared to those of other top trimmers. Also, some reviewers noted how hair gets caught in this trimmer fairly easily, so you’ll want to clean it out regularly for optimal results.
Bottom Line: Thanks to its elegant design and long-lasting battery, The Trimmer serves as a worthy competitor to MANSCAPED’s popular “Lawn Mower” line of trimmers. In truth, the two products are fairly similar, but The Trimmer stands out for those who would like more length options as well as superior battery life.
Keeping your pubic hair neat and tidy can be a harrowing experience if you fail to do your research when shopping for a trimmer. While the above products are all great options, no single device will work for everybody. Thus, closely consider your own grooming routine and preferences in order to find the perfect pubic hair trimmer for your needs.
