With a lot more men sporting beards and mustaches, keeping them neat and well-trimmed means finding the right tools to do the job, so many turn to the Internet to find beard trimmer reviews. Any man will tell you that if you want to do a good job, you need the right tools before you start. Like anything else, you need to know what you’re looking for in order to get the best information without having to wade through a lot of marginally related results.
When you run an Internet search for beard trimmer reviews, you’re going to mostly find sites that sell one or more particular brands. These sites all have the tendency to tout the wonders of their product, but fall short of the mark when you’re trying to decide on which one is best for the job you want to do. Rather than looking all the features of every model, try to narrow your search down by focusing on the things that are important to getting the job done. Like any other purchase you make, large or small, if the tool isn’t right for the job, or you have to give up features you need in order to get something else, it’s not a good investment, even if the price is good.
Start out with a list of a few key requirements that you’re looking for and thin the field out based on your requirements. Obviously, price is going to be a key factor. You don’t want to spend $100 on a product when a $25 one will work just as well. Next, look at what components are found in the product. The blades should be stainless steel which will last longer than some of the other materials, such as trimmers that use a foil screen to do the trimming. Next, how precise are the blades and do they work well with varied beard or mustache lengths? Size and fit of the trimmer are also important. It should be light weight and fit comfortable in either hand. Beard trimmers that are big, bulky or have too many features or too many settings are really annoying when all you want is a quick touchup.
When I was looking at beard trimmer reviews, I was surprised to see that many of the return results were for electric shavers with so called beard and mustache trimmer attachments. The problem with such models is that they lack the precision necessary to maintain a well groomed beard. These products tend to over cut or under cut, which throws the whole appearance off track. Trying to trim a nice beard with a razor that has a beard trimmer attachment is like trying to drive a nail in using a sledgehammer!
Finally, there are the choices of wired or wireless, wet or dry? Many trimmers feature both battery operation as well as plugged in (wired), but battery life may be limited to a few minutes use before recharging is required. If you plan to use it on the road, long battery life is an important feature. Many trimmers are also constructed so that you can use them in the shower or rinse them under the faucet, which makes cleaning the trimmer easier.
