Gentlemen, listen up! If you’re looking for the best beard trimmer for the money, you’re in the right place. Before we jump to the reviews, take a look at what you need to know before buying new gear for that handsome face.
Wet Use: It’s not essential to have a trimmer that can be used on wet skin, but it sure is convenient. For those of you not in the know, this means you can use your beard trimmer in the shower, tub, and any other wet and wild situations. In all seriousness, wet use can help reduce skin irritation and makes life simple.
Dry Use: If you like to keep things simple and old-school, trimming your beard dry is the way to go. It’s preferred by many since it allows to see the results of what that trim will look like more quickly. The choice is yours, of course, so pick the beard trimmer that gives you the desired use and results.
Cordless: You know the trade-off, right? Cordless trimmers are flexible and convenient to use but need to be charged, or you need to pop in a new battery. Corded beard trimmers never run out of battery (because there is none) but that cable can get in the way. Again, this is a matter of personal preference but worth considering.
Attachments: Although you can do without any sort of accessories, it’s nice to have the option to trim and style your facial hair. Personally, we like if the beard trimmer has some attachments as it makes it easier to use and offers nice long-term value. We’ll make sure to point out below if trimmer attachments are part of the deal.
Waterproof: Just because a trimmer/shaver can be used on wet skin, it doesn’t mean it’s waterproof. If a trimmer is labeled as waterproof by the manufacturer, feel free to take it into the shower. As a rule, corded trimmers will tend NOT to be waterproof, let alone immersible. Always double check when buying to be safe here. Being waterproof is not a must have, btw.
Size: Ready for a lazy pun? Ok, size does matter in this case. Surprisingly, smaller is better. That’s because it makes your beard trimmer easier to handle and store. If you’re always off to a new adventure, a smaller product will also store easier in your bags. You can see the size of each trimmer right below in the reviews.
All right, let’s cut to the chase and start trimming! Here are our top 10 recommendations for the best beard trimmer to buy. If you’re in a hurry, check out the premium top pick and affordable budget pick. Let’s do this!
