With Father's Day fast approaching, it's all about menfolk every-which-way you look at present, including here on Six Little Hearts. Have you found a suitable gift yet, for the significant man in your life? (All the best with it. It's quite a tough exercise to find something unique and purposeful.)
Thankfully for us, Philips very recently reached out and offered us the opportunity to try out their Series 7000 Vacuum Beard Trimmer. As soon as I told the hipster husband that such a device existed and that he was about to become a product tester, he was understandably over the moon. (Admittedly I was too. No need to stress myself shopping for the big event this year. Ideal!)
In case you've somehow failed to notice, beards are all the rage at the moment. My husband has been proudly sporting his, (complete with a full handlebar moustache), for around two years now. Just prior to compiling this post, he unfortunately shaved the lot clean-off and was remorseful immediately. He's now begun a fresh regrowth, with new 'beard goals' currently underway.
I've little need to tell you that the modern hipster man really appreciates his facial hair. (Mine seems to talk about his a whole lot anyway!) For him, there's been some serious time and effort put into sculpting the perfect hipster look. As a result, there are creams, lotions and potions all over our bathroom and even in our car. Being a woman, I never knew just how much grooming and maintenance was involved for a man, until I actually lived with a significant beard and mo' in the house!
|Dial-up the length of your beard, press the on switch and away with the untidiness.|
Regardless of your man's preferences surrounding his stubble or beard length, just about all women will relate to the mess men can leave behind in the bathroom, post-shave. You no doubt know well, those little bits of stubble and piles of facial fluff which are glued to your basin, cabinet and tiles. Personally, it not only irritates me to see this on our own white sink and tiles at times, but it also makes me feel a little ill! (It definitely has a bit of a creepy, ick factor for me that I can't quite place.)
Stubble strewn around our bathroom doesn't seem to bother my husband at all however, and I've an inkling that this may be a 'common trait' exhibited amongst many shaving males. Have a little think about the habits of yours. If he's tidy in this regard, consider yourself blessed!
All up, the Philips Series 7000 Vacuum Beard Trimmer has been a blessing in this house.
In terms of the trimmer's ability to do its job and provide a quick, accurate and easy shave, my husband is completely sold on it. (It's his new toy if you will.)
The device offers twenty lock-in length settings which are displayed via a bright digital indicator. These are easily dialled-up with a quick twist to the desired setting. It's also comfortable to hold and a good size and weight for its job. It operates quietly too.
I watched quite fascinated, as my husband transformed himself from ungroomed and messy, to neat and tidy in just five short minutes using the Philips Trimmer. By the time I took these images, he was already well-versed with all of this device's capabilities and parts. (Like I said earlier... this hipster is somewhat obsessed. He was using the beard trimmer before I had even laid-eyes on the box.)
Now as for that vacuum component that sets this trimmer apart, I am mighty impressed! Philips claims that up to 90 percent of cut hair will be retained within the device and I am happy to report that this indeed is what happens. At the end of this particular shaving session, there were barely any hairs loitering in the basin. Even my husband noticed. (Something he's failed to do for a good long time now!)
Having all the hair stored neatly within makes cleaning up so simple for him. Just remove the top of the trimmer and empty it into a bin. The trimmer comes with a couple of cleaning brushes and sponges to keep it all in good order. The pack also includes a precision trimmer, two precision combs and the device itself sports quality, full-metal blades.
The Series 7000 Vacuum Beard Trimmer comes with a power cord and charges within an hour. A full charge offers eighty minutes run time, making it fully portable and handy for the car, gym bag, work and so on. Or just plug it in and use it from a power source. It has a three level power indicator to provide plenty of warning of its power status. Plus there's worldwide voltage and a two year warranty.
We love this product! It does a great combined job of trimming and cleaning. If your man is in need of a new trimmer, this one is fantastic. Learn more about the Philips Series 7000 Vacuum Beard Trimmer here. RRP $109.95. Available at department stores and online Australia-wide.
