A Look at the Philips Norelco BodyGroom Pro
For men who shave below the neck, body grooming can be quite an ordeal. Using a traditional razor can end in nicks or cuts as well as razor burn. The Philips Norelco BodyGroom Pro (BG2040) is specifically designed to meet the below the neck grooming needs of men.
Philips Norelco has a reputation centered on customer care and quality. A lot of thought definitely went into the design of the BodyGroom Pro. It is durable yet certain features such as the soft rubber side panels or rounded blades make it safe and that’s a big deal when it comes to grooming.
Philips Norelco BodyGroom Pro Features
One of the first things you’ll notice about the BodyGroom Pro is its ergonomic design and rounded blades. The 3D head actually pivots front to back and side to side allowing for a close shave minus the nicks. At the bottom of the Pro, you’ll notice a trimmer.
The trimmer also features rounded blades and combs to eliminate scratching. The trimmer is adjustable from 1/8 of an inch to 11/25 of an inch. The trimmer is great for maintaining sideburns or beard.
The BodyGroom Pro is 100% waterproof giving you the flexibility of a wet or dry shave and also makes for easy cleaning. Another important feature is the hypoallergenic blades which reduce irritation.
The Pro has self sharpening blades eliminating the need for lubricating or maintenance, other than cleaning of course. It is recommended the foil be changed every 6 to 12 months however. This is kind of a drawback in my opinion as most shaver foils only need replacing every 12 to 18 months.
The Pro comes with a charging station and a full charge can be reached in 1 hour. 1 hour of charge allows for 50 minutes of use which unless you are hairy as a gorilla should be more than enough time for a proper grooming.
Another feature that is pretty much standard on most shaver or groomers is an LED battery indicator. The LED indicator shows the charging status letting you know if the battery is low, charging, or fully charged.
Here’s a promotional video I found featuring the Pro, pretty cool and who doesn’t love Kelly Brook? Check it out.
What’s in the Box?
You of course get the BodyGroom Pro, a very cool looking charging stand which folds up for storing and a cleaning brush. I should also mention Philips Norelco offers a 45 day money back guarantee as well as a two year warranty.
I think 45 days is more than enough time to decide whether or not you like a product. You simply try it out and if you don’t like it send it back and get your money back, it’s as simple as that.
My Thoughts on the BodyGroom Pro
I think the BodyGroom Pro would be a great addition to any guys shaving cabinet. It’s definitely a quality product and priced right. I really like the fact that it is waterproof. I also like that it is maintenance free.
Some of the things I don’t really like about the Pro is its not functional for a nose or ear hair trimmer. I would have really liked to have seen an attachment that does this, but you can pick up a nose and ear hair trimmer for right around $20 so it really not that big of a deal.
The only other issue I have with the Philips Norelco BodyGroom Pro is that you only get 50 minutes of function on a full charge. It only takes an hour to achieve a full charge and other models take 8 hours and only offer 50 minutes, but still, I’m the kind of guy that always forgets to charge things and then I have to wait around to use them.
Here’s a video (commercial) I found that gives you a little closer look at the pro. The guy using it isn’t very hairy so you can’t see how it works on longer hair, but it gives an overview, check it out.
What Other Guys are saying about the Philips Norelco BodyGroom Pro
The BodyGroom Pro has received quite a bit of reviews from customers with an overall satisfaction rating of 4.0 stars out of 5. Here are some of the comments made from guys who have purchased the Pro:
Shaves even longer chest and back hair without pulling or irritating the skin.” and “I recommend this to anyone out there looking for a groomer for ALL parts of the body.” This one is my personal favorite, “I’m a believer! This thing really works- yes, even on that.
That last one is a little humorous. I know we all have grooming preferences as far as what parts of the body are groomed…not going into detail, but it’s important for guys who do choose to groom those sensitive areas to have a groomer that is safe yet will get the job done. The Pro seems to be a great choice that covers those areas, no pun intended.
