Haven’t we all cut ourselves while shaving?
But that’s not something you want to do while trimming pubic hair.
Today, I’ll show you the best trimmers for balls.
They get the job done while protecting your private area from injury.
How to groom pubic hair
The first rule is to have your own trimmer.
Do not share your hair removal product with anyone else.
The American Academy of Dermatology explains that there was a case where one brother infected the other with a sexually transmitted disease because they shared shavers (1).
Then, the second rule is to do it standing up.
Don’t sit or lay down to trim your privates. Standing allows you to see what you’re doing.
Researchers discovered that those who needed medical care for injuries to the private area had been lying down while shaving.
Next, the third rule is to keep it clean.
Wash your balls before you shave them. This applies whether you trim them wet or dry.
Also, clean the trimmer afterward.
Finally, the fourth rule is to moisturize.
Just like you put aftershave on your face, you need fragrance-free lotion to prevent ingrown hairs and itchiness.
Scratching your balls in public just isn’t socially acceptable.
Now, let’s review the best body groomers for men.
Top Trimmers for Balls
Philips Norelco Bodygroom 7100
Guys want to know if they can use OneBlade to shave their balls.
After all, supposedly it’s for any length of hair.
Unfortunately, the official company responses that the OneBlade razor is only made for use on the face. But you could try the Blade Face + Body attachment with skin guard.
Today, though, we’re looking at trimmers, not razors.
That’s why we’ll start with the Philips Norelco Bodygroom 7100. It’s a top of the line body groomer.
To begin with, it’s water-resistant so that you can shave in the shower. That’s a time-saver right there.
Next, it has a pivoting head that moves in three dimensions. This design allows it to follow every contour.
I personally prefer multi-function products like this one. I love how this one is dual-sided so that it trims or shaves. You can use it on any part of your body below the neck, literally.
Then, there are five length settings in case you don’t want to have a close shave. The built-in comb has rounded tips to avoid scratching the skin.
It’s cordless and rechargeable – the battery lasts for nearly an hour of continuous use.
Moreover, the manufacturer offers a 45-day money-back guarantee and a two-year warranty.
Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7000
Let’s take a small step down to the next best body groomer from Philips Norelco.
Although it’s still available for purchase, it’s an older model.
There’s at least one reason why guys prefer it to the newer version.
The battery lasts up to eighty minutes per charge, almost half an hour longer. The LED light will show you when it’s time to recharge.
Otherwise, it has similar features.
One end is a shaver and the other is a trimmer with five adjustable lengths.
You can use it dry or in the shower. The pivoting head makes it effortless to follow every curve.
Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 3500
The 3500 trimmer trades a little bit of convenience for a significant cut in price.
What I mean is that it comes with pop-on attachments instead of a built-in adjustable comb. That’s not a big deal as long as you don’t tend to lose little parts.
On the downside, it can’t handle thick hair as well.
On the bright side, this trimmer comes with an extra-long back attachment. It folds up for storage.
Like the other models above, it’s shower-proof.
The lithium-ion battery lasts up to an hour and recharges within an hour, too.
Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 1100
If you’re on a budget, check out the Series 1100.
It doesn’t have a rechargeable battery – it requires one AA battery instead. But that one battery can last for up to two months of regular use.
In some ways, a removable battery is better because you don’t need to throw away the appliance if the battery fails.
Next, it’s water-resistant to allow you to shave in the shower. There’s a loop on the handle so that you can hang it up.
It features a bi-directional trimmer to cut hair in any direction. The integrated guard means you won’t snip your skin on accident.
The main con is the lack of versatility.
It comes with just one 1/8-inch comb. If that’s not the hair length you want to leave behind, too bad.
But since the company offers a forty-five-day risk-free trial, you can always send it back if you’re unhappy.
Philips Norelco OneBlade Face + Body, Hybrid Electric Trimmer
You were waiting for it, and here it is. It’s the OneBlade with the body groomer attachments.
They call it a hybrid electric trimmer.
It comes with two blades. One is for your face and the other for your body. At least they are different colors so that you don’t mix them up.
There are also four trimming combs for the beard and one for the rest of the body.
Most importantly, there is a skin guard. You need this for trimming your balls.
One charge lets the trimmer run for up to an hour continuously.
Braun 9-In-1 All-In-One Trimmer MGK5080
Now that we’ve seen the best that Norelco has to offer, let’s skip over to Braun.
The advantage here is that this trimmer covers your entire body, from your legs to your nuts to your beard, nose, and ears.
You can even shave your face with it.
Hence the need to clean and disinfect it regularly.
The accessories include a variety of snap-on attachments for different purposes.
Another bonus is that the lithium-ion battery lasts for up to one hundred minutes of use. It takes just over one hour to recharge.
Of course, it’s washable and waterproof.
What’s more, it comes with a free Gillette Fusion5 ProGlide Razor.
The MANGROOMER original behaves like two tools in one.
You can use it to trim hair anywhere.
The lowest trimmer setting gets as close as 1/16-inch. But there are eight length settings total plus the foil shaver.
It comes with an extra replacement foil to extend its lifetime.
The waterproof trimmer has a rubberized grip and two business ends. One has the foil blade and the other an adjustable comb.
The lithium-ion battery is claimed to last five times longer than a NiCad. The package includes a charging cradle and a two-year warranty.
PLATINUM PRO by MANGROOMER
If you compare the PLATINUM PRO to the original black MANGROOMER, it’s hard to see what the difference is besides the color.
This trimmer is also a two-in-one shaver the covers every inch of your body. The shock-absorbing flexible neck makes it easy to follow contours.
One end has a foil blade and the other an adjustable-length comb. On that side, the closest you can cut is 1/16-inch.
It’s suitable for shaving wet or dry.
The manufacturer includes a travel case, charging cradle, and extra replacement foil.
Panasonic Electric Body Groomer & Trimmer for Men ER-GK60-S
One of the top men’s body groomers is made by Panasonic.
You’ll never mistake it for a beard trimmer as it has a unique design.
The V-shaped head gets into every crevice easily. You can slip on one of the attachments to trim either ¼ or 1/8-inch lengths.
Otherwise, the bare trimmer cuts as close as 0.004-inch from the skin but never the skin itself.
I have to say that Panasonic has covered all the bases. They even make it so that the blades don’t yank hairs.
Use it wet or dry. It has hypoallergenic blades that won’t be damaged by your favorite shave gel.
Remington PG6250 WetTech Body Groomer
Remington’s ball trimmer works wet or dry and with gel or foam. It’s a good budget option if you don’t need a foil shaver.
It lasts up to seventy minutes per charge. The LED reveals when it’s time to refill the battery.
The non-slip rubber grip makes it effortless to control, too.
There are five comb attachments for just about any length of hair.
Furthermore, you’re protected by a sixty-day money-back guarantee.
Remington BHT300 All Access Men’s Bodygroomer
Remington also makes a trimmer that resembles a fat razor.
It has a flexible head and a rubberized handle. You can use it wet or dry.
The package includes three bi-directional trimming combs to give you a little flexibility in how long you leave the hair.
It comes with a thirty-day money-back guarantee and a two-year warranty.
Wahl Groom Pro Total Body Grooming Kit
Wahl makes products for professional barbers. It’s no surprise that their body grooming kit has Pro features.
First, the trimmer has a Powerdrive motor for long life and the ability to handle thick hair.
Second, the precision-ground high-carbon steel blades are self-sharpening. (And kind of intimidating.)
As you can imagine, this is a tool made to last.
But how is it for trimming your balls?
Well, it’s advertised as a total body groomer. It has a taper lever and attachments to customize cutting lengths.
It’s battery-operated, but not waterproof.
In my opinion, it may not be the best choice for trimming pubic hair. But it’s a champ for anywhere else.
Sminiker Professional 5 in 1 Man’s Grooming Kit
Those watching their wallets might like this trimmer. It comes with a lot of extras.
The extras include a manicure kit with scissors, clippers, tweezers, and more.
You can use the trimmer for your hair as it has four attachments for different lengths.
It’s battery-powered and can work continuously for up to an hour.
The micro-shaver head lets you edge your beard or groom your armpits and other body parts.
There’s also a nose trimmer.
Although the shaver isn’t waterproof, you can remove the cutting head and rinse it.
Honestly, there are better ball trimmers out there that won’t break the bank.
Cleancut T-Shape Personal Shaver For Men
You don’t have to have batteries or electricity if you use the Cleancut Personal Shaver.
It’s a Japanese product that comes with a one-year parts and labor guarantee.
The slotted foil cuts close without nicking or pulling hairs.
Oddly, though, it works best with baby powder. The powder acts as a lubricant.
Women don’t like to cut themselves, either. Therefore, let’s branch out into some alternatives like the best pubic hair trimmers for ladies.
The BikiniGenie can handle thick hair, and it can shave, too. It comes with click-on comb attachments.
This is one of the cheapest trimmers you can get.
Use it wet or dry.
It runs on AA batteries and comes with a storage pouch.
Panasonic Bikini Shaper and Trimmer ES246AC
You’d be forgiven for mistaking this trimmer as a tool for guys. The only giveaway is the white plastic body.
It has a waterproof head and comes with a cleaning brush for straightforward maintenance.
It runs up to forty-five minutes on a charge.
There are five position settings. Plus, the trimmer’s hypoallergenic blade design avoids razor bumps and irritation.
Philips Bikiniperfect Advanced HP6378
You used to be able to get the Bikiniperfect in blue, but now I’ve only seen it in pink.
If you can get over the color choice, this is a pubic hair trimmer worth considering. For the money, it’s got a lot of flexibility.
There’s a foil shaving head, a micro-trimmer, a precision trimming head, and a precision home that goes on the trimming head.
If you’re feeling brave, try the epilator head. It pulls hair out by the roots. But the upside is that it takes longer for the hair to grow back.
The trimmer is waterproof and rechargeable. It works continuously for up to an hour.
The package includes a white travel pouch, an exfoliating glove, and an eyebrow comb.
It’s a sensitive place, so it’s worth it to get the best trimmer for pubic hair.
Consider whether you want to trim wet or dry. Then, decide if you want different lengths and a foil shaver.
