As long as I’ve known my hubby, he’s always sported a mustache. According to him, he started growing one at the early age of 11 and hasn’t shaved there since. I often wonder what he would look like without it. hehee!

He does, however give it a trim on a regular basis so it doesn’t get out of hand — thank goodness! haha.

The problem he’s always run into though is nicking his lip with a manual razor (due to the angle). And typical electric face shavers are just too big to get in and around the ‘stache. So, often times (after a trim) he walks around with a little ‘boo boo’ on his upper lip. Sorry honey, I had to tell. hahaa!

MY main issues with his ‘old school’ shaving is the little hairs that linger in and around the bathroom sink, plus the expense of buying those high priced disposable razors or razor blades. Ugh!

Well, no more… thanks to Philips Norelco, hubby has been getting a closer, more manicured mustache and his lips are much safer too. Oh, and those little, annoying hairs have gone ‘bye-bye’. No more clogging our drains. Woohoo!

The Philips Norelco Vacuum Stubble & Beard Trimmer Pro has been a true lifesaver for not only our drains but our bank account and hubby’s poor lip. See, not only is this awesome trimmer great at giving your man a close, protected shave, but it vacuums those loose hairs (as he shaves) so your bathroom counters and sinks stay sparkling clean after he’s done.

Psst… and hubby doesn’t leave the bathroom with tiny pieces of toilet tissue stuck to his face. LOL

Here’s how it works!

Integrated vacuum system

The trimmer pro contains an integrated vacuum system that’s activated once you turn the unit on. It also offers 18 secured length settings– from 1mm. to 18mm. using a zoom lock wheel on the reverse side. A bright multifunctional display shows exactly what length you’ve chosen to prevent accidentally cutting too short.

Adjustable comb

If your guy likes maintaining a beard, he’ll appreciate the detachable, adjustable comb that gently guides the trimmer blades to follow the curves of his face. If he likes sporting a five o’clock shadow, the convenient stubble setting allows for a trim clear down to 1/2 millimeter in length. I prefer a smooth face myself (on my hubby, that is). No facial hair for me…. yet. ha!

Turbo power button

The trimmer pro also offers an easy-to-use turbo power button for those bushes dense beards. With the simple press of a button, the trimmer is boosted in cutting and fan speed so it cuts through thicker hairs more quickly.

This baby is also designed for corded and cordless action, giving your man more freedom to style his facial hair wherever he is. And if he travels, the trimmer pro includes a safety lock to prevent accidental turn-on while in transit. Nothing like opening your luggage to find holey clothing due to a “runaway shaver”. haha!

And lastly, one great feature that I know you’ll love is the powerful lithium-ion battery. I don’t know how many times I’ve went to use my own shaver, only to find that it’s dead. Hmm, so much for getting out the door quickly. Ok, I admit it, I’ve walked out on many occasions with caterpillar legs — all thanks to my crappy ole cordless razor. Hubby’s new trimmer is looking mighty enticing. I wonder if it works on legs. haha!

This one lasts up to 50 minutes when used without the detachable cord on a one-hour charge. That’s pretty awesome!

All in all hubby has really enjoyed using the Vacuum Stubble & Beard Trimmer Pro. Although he doesn’t wear a beard that requires a lot of maintenance, he really likes the ease of use with the trimmer. It’s lightweight, can be used with or without the cord, it sucks up cut hair and it’s not nicking his poor lip. I would say that’s a huge plus! This trimmer is extremely affordable as well.
