As a man, it’s important to have a good understanding of what brand to keep a lookout for when shopping around for a new grooming product. While there are lots of high-end and quality companies to buy from, few stand out as much as Philips. As a result, finding the best Philips trimmer for men’s bodies is essentially like finding the Holy Grail of men’s grooming products.
Philips has been in the business of helping men look clean and stylish for a number of years, and as such, there have been a heap of awesome products kicked out from the brand over a number of years.
This is great for having lots of different shavers and trimmer to choose from, but what if you’re looking for the best of the best?
After looking through Philips’ entire selection of trimmers, we’ve picked out the 5 best items from the company that we feel most guys would be happy with. The trimmers have been chosen based on how much they have to offer for their respective price range, and with that out of the way, here’s what we found.
The first contender for the best Philips trimmer for
For starters, Philips designed the OneBlade to be able to use with essentially any length of hair imaginable. The OneBlade doesn’t cut hair quite as close to the skin as some of the other trimmers on this list, but this allows it to be noticeably more comfortable and easier on your skin than the OneBlade’s competitors.
The dual-sided nature of the blade on the OneBlade provides for a premium edging experience, and you should be able to get around four months of use out of it before needing to replace it for a new one. Add this with the fact that the OneBlade can be easily used both in and out of the shower, and you’ve got a really strong product that won’t break the bank.
4. Philips Norelco S9311/84
The Norelco S9311/84 is easily the most expensive trimmer from Philips on this list, but the higher price that you pay for this particular product will grant you with one of the absolute best shavers that money can currently buy. Period.
Just what makes the S9311 so incredible? For one thing, the heads present on this trimmer are able to move in eight different directions. This mobility means that the S9311 is capable of cutting up to 20% more hair than competing options, and the shaving system that Philips is using here also creates for a cut the is 30% closer.
The three different speed settings are designed to give you the best cut possible depending on how smooth or powerful of a trim you’re looking to get, and the lithium ion battery is rated to offer around 50 minutes of continuous use after only needing to be plugged in for 1 hour for a full charge to one hundred percent.
Along with the shaver itself, the S9311 also comes with Philips’ SmartClean System. By docking the S9311 into the SmartClean holder, you’re able to clean and lubricate the trimmer to make it look like new with just the press of one button. Necessary? No. Nice to have? Oh yeah.
3. Philips Norelco Shaver 4500
Philips’ Norelco Shaver 4500 might not have all the bells and whistles of the S9311, but what it lacks in fancy features it makes up for in raw, real-world performance. Philips has included its iconic DualPrecision blades with the 4500, and these feature unique holes and slots that create for a very smooth and comfortable cut whether you’re working with short or long hair (or something in between).
A pop-up trimmer helps to get extra precision when styling your mustache and sideburns, and the ability to take the Shaver 4500 in the shower with you without any worries is a really nice touch as well.
The Shaver 4500 may not go above and beyond the call of duty, but if you’re simply looking for a really reliable trimmer that won’t ever let you down, this is definitely for you.
2. Philips Norelco Electric Shaver 2100
Looking to keep things a bit more affordable? Check out the Philips Norelco Electric Shaver 2100. the 2100 is one of Philips’ best-selling electric trimmers to date, and this makes a lot of sense when you consider how much the company was able to pack into the 2100 while also keeping the price incredibly low.
You'll find Philips’ Flex Heads on the 2100, and these can move in four directions when put to use. This added movement means that the 2100 can follow the natural curves and contours of your face and neck without too much trouble at all, and the closeness of your cut is only made better with the 2100’s Close-Cut Blade System.
Similar to the Shaver 4500,
1. Philips Norelco 1150X/40 Shaver 6100
To finish up this list, let’s check out the Philips Norelco 1150X/40 Shaver 6100. One of the highlight features for this trimmer is its Gyroflex 2D contouring system, and as you might be able to guess, this helps the 6100 to more easily follow the natural contours present on your face, neck, etc. This system works incredibly well in our testing, and it does a fantastic job at reducing the amount of irritation and cuts you may come into contact with when working with other products.
Another big win for the Shaver 6100 is its DualPrecision heads that make working with all lengths of hair — even the shortest of stubble — extremely comfortable and efficient.
Where the 6100 truly differentiates itself is the ability to offer a super smooth cut whether you’re working with wet or dry hair. Other Philips trimmers do a good job at this, but the Shaver 6100 truly excels a lot better than many of the other trimmers found on this list.
