About this deal

So they don’t have rounded tips like the ones on the shaver end of the BG7030, so they will cut the skin if you use them without the comb, which you totally shouldn’t. The closeness is very similar to the Bodygroom 7000 (that has blades + a foil cutter), but the XT5 is not as fast and you’ll need more work to get all the hairs. For example, you can trim the hair on your chest and then use the shaver head to shave your armpits completely. This is pretty much the hallmark of the Norelco Bodygroom 7000 range and in my opinion the key feature that sets it apart from the competition. For use in the shower, and easy cleaning, yoyu can trim and shave in comfort, in the shower or outside, wet or dry.

I can easily finish a shaving/trimming session covering the entire body and still have around 30% battery left. The newer BG7030/49 is superior in pretty much every single aspect, battery life and the improvement of the trimmer and shaving head being among the most important ones. Luckily, the Philips Bodygroom 5000 is extremely forgiving and in my experience one of the very best out there for trimming pubic hair. I honestly don’t know how well it can handle that as it was not supposed to be used in that manner, so I think it would be best to consider a dedicated head trimmer/shaver.Responding to the market trends of men who desire a more preened physique, the brand now boasts a whole range of hair removal tools, from the best body groomers to the best IPL machines. First of all, it glides so much easier over the skin compared to other trimmers like the one on the BG2040. A quick update: I’m still using the bodygroomer in this review as my main body trimmer and so far it still works flawlessly, the battery life is solid and it still uses the original shaving head.

The Bodygroom line from Philips has long been the default choice for anyone looking for a capable and durable body trimmer.Philips recommends replacing this head every year, but in practice, it tends to last a lot more than that. The Norelco Bodygroom 5000 (BG5025/40) is fitted with a rechargeable Li-ion battery that can provide approximately one hour of cordless trimming. Actually, a stand is ok as long as you have the option to also charge the shaver directly, so you won’t have to always carry the stand with you. If you want to be extra thorough, you can put a few drops of liquid soap on the foil, add a bit of water and turn the trimmer on to lather the soap. The rounded teeth of the blades are very smooth and gentle and they catch and cut those long, soft hairs quickly and effectively.

Watching more user videos on this product and about trimming in general are very much needed before I make a purchase or even touch a trimmer!Apart from lubricating, it also dissolves any mineral deposits from the blades, which can be a problem in time, especially if your tap water is hard. The ultimate all-in-one solution, the Series 7000 features an integrated trimmer on one side and a skin-friendly, 4D contour following system on the other, for a comfortable and convenient trim or shave, anywhere below the neck. First off, let's talk about the foil shaver end and its 4D Contour Following System, a feature that’s been engineered so it can flex in four directions. Plug it in for a quick 10-minute charge and you’ll have 10 minutes of grooming time: it's ready when you are.

The 3-D pivoting shaver head closely follows your body's contours for a close shave with less irritation. Precisely, it only comes with two body guards (3 and 5mm) and the exposed blade cannot be used on the body as it doesn’t have rounded tips.If however you want to trim everything at skin level, you can do so without a guard and it will work really well. This is a minor touch, but I do appreciate this type of attention that improves the user experience. The trimmer is fast and quite efficient at capturing and cutting the hairs, even though you will have to go over the flat-lying ones a few times.
