Guide Review - Norelco Bodygroom Shaver Exclusively for Men

Personally, I love the Norelco Bodygroom. It did an excellent job everywhere I tried it. In the past, I used a combination of my conventional trimmers/clippers (like the one I use to clip my beard) to trim down chest, underarm, and groin hair and then I went back with a wet razor. I have had some bad accidents with this system as careful as I am. The Bodygroom has the ability to provide a pretty close shave in the underarm, groin and other sensitive areas and it does the job without the cuts, razor burn and irritation. It’s easy to clean and easy to handle so now I can’t imagine going back to my old ways. Another About.com Guide said that it "was not only extremely quick and comfortable, but it took half the time of my usual shave."

One complaint by many of the guys who have blogged about the Bodygroom is that the foil/removable head falls off rather easily. But it’s not the case for everyone and I will say that is the only serious complaint. Most of the reviews I have read have been positive. People like that it can be used wet (in the shower) or dry, although it apparently works better dry. And if you have thick hair, it takes a few more passes, but it gets the job done.

Skip the BG2020 and get the BG 2040., Member JimInTampa

I had the BG2020 for about 2 years. I thought it was junk. Then the BG2040 came out and it was a far better groomer. The 2040 was better engineered, better built and is a much more user friendly device. The groomer end does a great job of getting a close buzz while the trimmer end can handle the lighter trimming stuff. If you're very hairy and need serious trimming like I do on the chest, the 2040 falls a bit short. I still use a regular trimmer for mowing there. But the 2040 handles the everything else very well. And thank god they put on a well made, adjustable length guide on the 2040 and got rid of the snap on guides. Overall, its a vastly improved system now.
