This review is from: Philips TT2040 Rechargeable All-in-one Bodygroom Pro (Personal Care)
I have tried a number of male grooming products over the past few years, from disposable razors, the original bodygroom, waxing and dipiliatory creams, all with varying degrees of satisfaction.
With razor shaving I found I got horrible shaving rash, waxing was painful and expensive and didn't last as long as I'd hoped and the original bodygroom didn't cut close enough.
This one is completely different though! I decided to invest in the Pro model, to replace waxing to save in the long run and I was getting frustrated with having to go through the regrowth period before it could be removed again.
I have used it for a few days now, and I am extremely impressed with the results. It feels like a very high quality product. The pivoting head for shaving is extremely effective, even for sensitive areas with no fear of nicking or catching. The result post shave is very smooth, and although it grows back in a day or so, you just shave it off again as it is so quick and easy.
The double ended design with the trimmer is also very useful, saves faffing around changing shaving heads and means you don't have to store/lose the various attachments.
The only downside which I can see with the product is the very long charging time, 10 hours does seem a long time for 50 minutes use, although as it is so efficient at shaving you probably could get about 3 days use out of the product to run it down, and then simply charge it over night.
All in all I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to tidy themselves up, or completely remove body hair for whatever reason. The results may only last a short time, but it gives you the flexibility of doing it right before you go out etc. and no waiting around for regrowth like there is with waxing.
