Not all men are particularly fastidious over their body hair – I count myself as one of them. That said, many men like to keep their body hair trimmed and clean. Whether it’s trimming your armpits, your chest or, god forbid, your back, a good body trimmer can do wonders for your physique.
While body trimmers are similar to razors, they are not identical. When it comes to keeping down body hair, they are superior in many ways to traditional razors.
As I’m sure you may know, some body trimmers simply aren’t very good, but you won’t necessarily know that simply by looking at them in the store. We understand the dilemma, and our team has done careful research to find some of the best body trimmers on sale today.
No matter what your budget may be, there’s a product on this list that matches it. So sit back, kick up your feet and read on.
Things to Consider
A body trimmer is very similar to a beard trimmer or hair clipper, but they are designed to accommodate the hairs and musculature of different parts of your body. Here are some things to keep in mind while shopping for your next purchase.
One of the most important features of a body hair trimmer is its ability to adjust to different lengths. Everyone has different preferences for how long their body hair should be, and a good body trimmer should reflect that.
2. Power Supply
Some trimmers are corded and plug into a wall. Others are battery-powered. If they have a battery, is it a rechargeable one with a power charging station? How long will it take to charge the trimmer after it dies? If you have a lot of hair to trim and a trimmer takes eight hours to charge, that may not be a good fit.
3. Running Time
If the trimmer is not battery-powered and has a cable, it will be able to run forever. But if it runs on battery power, pay attention to how long it’ll run before needing a recharge. Try to guess how long it’ll take to trim what you need to trim and plan accordingly.
4. Material of the Blade
The material of the blade will have a major impact on how long your trimmer will last. Most blades will be made out of stainless steel or chromium steel. It’s also important that the head of the razor be able to pivot and turn to meet the different shapes of your body, as the textures are quite different than the face.
This isn’t a huge concern, as most body trimmers cost around $50 or so. If you want a nice one, you’ll have to pay more, but think long and hard before you shill out $100 or more. Unless you’re a barber, stylist or just serious about your beard, you won’t need an expensive model.

Picking the best body trimmer isn’t easy, as there are a lot of great trimmers, and some are better suited for some tasks than other. However, we felt that the Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7100 is at least as good as any other trimmer on the market.

10. Philips Norelco Multigroom 3000 MG3750
The Philips Norelco Multigroom 3000 is a very nice budget trimmer that comes with a whopping 13 different attachments, making it both an affordable and diverse all-in-one product. Attachments include stubble comb, mustache and beard trimmers, nose trimmer, detail trimmers, and a full trimmer.
The Multigroom 3100 offers 18 different length settings, allowing you to trim your body hair the way you want it. This trimmer is waterproof so that you can wash it after every use. This cordless trimmer runs for an hour and has a quick-charge feature that allows you to use it after just minutes of charging, perfect for when you’re on the go.
This isn’t the best trimmer for getting under the armpits or trimming chest hair, although it’ll do the job. However, for a trimmer that costs less than 20 bucks, you can’t go wrong here.
- Comes with 13 different attachments
- Runs for an hour
- Have a useful quick-charge features
- Comes with a two-year warranty
- Most of the attachments are focused on beard or hair trimming
9. Gillette Fusion Proglide Styler Men’s Body Groomer
We’ve all seen the commercials for Gillette on TV. This is one of the first Gillette products I’ve used, and I have to say I liked it.
The Gillette Fusion Proglide Styler Men’s Body Groomer is a 3-in-1 dermatologist tested device that is perfect for trimming as well as shaving. This groomer uses the same quality of blades that made Gillette a household name, and it has the advanced blades and edging blades that provide a perfect shave.
The Gillette Fusion Groomer ships with an organizer, battery, three custom-length combs, a ProGlide power cartridge, and a trimmer. You can clean the device with water, and the organizer is super handy, as it makes it easy to store all of your accessories in one place instead of a confused pile behind the mirror.
The trimmer works well, but I would advise using it with shaving cream or gel.
- Nifty container keeps everything organized
- Comes with three different combs
- Uses AA battery instead of rechargeable battery
- Replacement attachments not available in stores
8. Yunai Professional 8 in 1 Electric Blade Men’s Trimmer
This stylish eight-in-one trimmer from Yunai has got a lot going for it. It’s versatile and has plenty of attachments good enough to keep your body hairs trimmed. However, It works on 100 to 240 volts with a frequency of around 50 to 60 Hz – these are European Union standards, and the trimmer has to be converted to U.S. measurements with a converter plug. It has a lithium-ion battery that recharges in 2 hours.
The Yunai Professional is designed to meet almost all your needs. You can trim your beard and mustache, clip drooping hairs from your nose and ears and keep your body hairs trimmed to a manageable level. The attachments include a hair clipper comb, shaver trimmer, precision trimmer, nose trimmer, and full-size trimmer.
- Attractive, stylish design
- Comes with eight different accessories
- Converter plug needed to work with outlets in the United States
7. Philips Norelco BG2034/42 3100 Bodygroomer
Chest hair looks tough and manly. No one likes back hair. The Philips Norelco Bodygroomer was especially designed to make it easier to shave your back. I don’t have hair on my back, so I wasn’t able to test it personally, but it has a much longer head so I can understand how it would help facilitate that.
The BG2034/42 is a hypoallergenic device that is safe for cleaning legs, shoulders, back, abs, chest, and underarms. It comes with three different combs so you can tailor fit your body hair to different lengths. The specially designed shaving head helps to avoid painful cuts while helping to provide a more even cut between shorter and longer hairs.
In addition to being hypoallergenic, the Bodygroomer is also waterproof, so you can use it in the shower and wash all your hairs down the drain. Much to my dismay, however, it takes a full 8 hours to completely recharge the battery, and its operating time is just 50 minutes. However, there is a light that shows the battery status, with a green color indicating a full battery while an orange light blinks when the battery is about to end.
This is a good body groomer, but I just wish it didn’t take so long to charge, or that it had an option to be corded to avoid such long charging times.
- Extra long design makes it easier to trim back hairs
- Comes with three different combs
- Helpful battery light indicators
- It takes a full 8 hours to charge
6. Wahl 9854-600 Lithium Ion All In One Trimmer
As far as the trimmer goes, it comes with a wide assortment of attachments that allow you to touch up and trim just about any part of your body, making it a true all-in-one trimmer. These precision attachments include trimmer blades used for facial hairs, the Precision detailer for trimming brows, hair removers for the nose and ears, dual shaver for the body as well as the face and head and a clipper blade. A smart LED and an automatic charge off are added bonuses that make this a very nice trimmer for a reasonable price. It also has quite a bit of torque, which is useful for removing longer, curly hairs.
The Wahl 9854-600 is a pretty effective trimmer that has enough torque to get even tough trims done quickly, although you’re going to want to do a full charge if you plan on doing the extensive trimming. Quick charges take just five minutes, and a full charge is ready in an hour. The trimmer can run for up to three hours on a full charge. All in all, a very nice trimmer that comes with a ton of useful attachments.
- Comes with eight different accessories
- Offers more torque for superior trim
- Five-minute quick charge
- Trimming beard without attachments can pull hard and hurt
5. Remington PG6170
Every time I hear the name Remington, I think of Pierce Brosnan’s popular role as the television detective Remington Steel, and I can’t see Pierce Brosnan without thinking of James Bond. As a result, I watched GoldenEye after I used this beard trimmer.
There is no connection between Alex Trevelyan and this body trimmer save one: they’re both awesome. (I think Trevelyan is the of the greatest Bond villains of all time.) First off, the PG6170 can run on battery power for up to three hours, which is a lot longer than most of them. Second, the steel blades have been coated with titanium, making them almost invulnerable to damage. A five-minute quick charge gives just enough time for a quick shave if you’re in a hurry, and the trimmer comes with nine different attachments, making it well suited for some tasks.
The trimmer is waterproof and backed by a two-year warranty. It also has nine different length settings, offering you a decent array of customization. This wasn’t my favorite body trimmer, but it was in my top three. I guess it has something else in common with GoldenEye after all.
- Comes with nine different accessories
- Battery can run for three hours straight
- Can quick charge in just five minutes
- Plastic casing could be stronger
4. Philips Norelco BG2040/34 Bodygroom 7100
The Philips Norelco Bodygroom is an excellent trimmer designed to provide close, clean trims for all parts of the body. It has a very modern, efficient design.
The head of the Bodygroom 7100 pivots in three different directions, provides you with a safe shave that closely follows the varying contours of your body. There are five built-in comb lengths that allow for some personal optimization.
The 7100 has a two-year warranty. It uses a rechargeable battery, and a charging station is included. This is probably one of the finer body trimmers I used, as the flexible head makes it easier to trim hard-to-reach and sensitive places such as the armpits. A very good model.
- Designed to meet all your grooming needs
- Has several attachments and adjustment lengths
- Has to charge for 24 hours before its first use

3. MANGROOMER Ultimate Pro Back Shaver
Like the Bodygroom 3100, the Mangroomer Ultimate Pro Back Shaver is designed to make shaving your back – arguably the hardest area to reach by yourself – easily accessible. It succeeds in this very well, surpassing the Philips Norelco Bodygroom quite easily.
The design of this trimmer is sleek, and the on/off button is in plain sight in the body, which also has a charging light that lets you know when the trimmer is powered up and ready. The extra long handle is made so that you can reach any area of your back, and it has a special power burst mode that allows you to get through especially thick patches of hair.
The Mangroomer comes with two different detachable heads. One is designed to take down longer hairs, while the other is suited for shorter ones. The long handle latches into place for stability while shaving and the head are designed to follow the contours of your back for a closer, safer shave.
This isn’t the best trimmer for all-around use. It’s larger and a bit bulkier than some other models. But if you need a great back trimmer, I can think of no finer one to use.
- Extra-long handle allows you to shave your entire back
- Two heads to work with different lengths of hair
- Charging lights let you know when trimmer is ready
- Bulky design is less effective for general body grooming
2. Wahl 9818 Lithium Ion Stainless Steel All-in-one Groomer
The Wahl 9818 Lithium Ion Stainless Steel All-in-one Groomer is manufactured in the USA with a heavy-duty body and detachable stainless. There is a staggering amount of attachments included, so many I’ve lost count (it’s somewhere between 18 and 20). It also comes with a handy pouch for storing everything, oil for the blade and a charging station.
Attachments include trimmers for the brows, nose, and ears, a detail trimmer for beards, several detail shavers for outlining and shaving, and eight T-blades for haircuts and trims. It takes an hour to charge but can run for up to four hours, making it a very effective body trimmer and an unbeatable value.
- A massive number of accessories
- Runs for up to four hours on a single charge
- Made in the USA
- Comes with a five-year warranty
1. Philips Norelco Multigroom 7100 w/ eight attachments
I liked this trimmer a lot. I’ve used it before as a beard trimmer, so I wanted to see how well it worked on the rest of the body. It has an impressive 18 built-in adjustment settings and comes with eight separate attachments for performing a variety of detailed work and also enabling you to trim longer beards, as well as unruly back hair. The attachments include a full-size metal guard trimmer, a body trimming comb, hair clipping comb, beard comb, stubble comb, and nose trimmer.
All in all, this is a very versatile trimmer that can take care of a lot more than just beards. It can run for one hour, which is enough time for most men to trim everything they need to. However, I ended up feeling like this is better suited to trimming beards than body hair. It does a good job, but for the price, I feel like there are better options for you.
- Has 18 different length settings
- Comes with eight different attachments
- Includes 2-year warranty
- Not as effective at trimming body hair as a proper trimmer
Whether you use a body trimmer on a regular basis or just for important events, there are a ton of excellent options here to suit any man’s lifestyle. Whether you prefer Philips Norelco, Wahl or Gillette, the variety of choices here is impressive. I hope I have provided enough options for you make a smart buying decision.
