So you probably belong to the group of men who prefer to stay ‘clean shaven’ in every sense! Be it at the beach or at the pool, or just about anywhere else, excessive body hair is no longer considered macho but just plain unsightly. The times where only women would shave or wax their whole body hair is fading away as more and more men are joining the ranks of being hairless and smooth.
Whether it is something that you want to do or not, we aren’t here to judge, but instead we will give you our results after testing and crowning the best body shaver of 2018.
Shavers that let you do the job easily and with minimum chance of cuts and injury are few and far in between. There have been some bad cuts from some of these products but it is all part of the experience of being a tester and grader. Anyway, since we know that you are waiting for the results, let’s get right into it and show you our list.
Top 5 Best Body Groomers of 2018
Yes, granted, you’ll find many others in the market – but if you want to trust them with your eyes closed (which is a bad idea), then these 5 are the absolute go-to products:
Coming from the Philips line, this one is definitely a solid product. The shaver comes with a back attachment that allows you to shave your back easily. In addition, to minimize irritation, there is a hypoallergenic foil coating over the blades that already come with combs of 3 lengths for different lengths of hair.
This proves to be quite helpful for people especially with sensitive skin. Without the hypoallergenic foil, it is very easy to get a negative reaction from these types of body hair trimmers.
This shaver is electric but also water proof so if you want to shave in the shower that is also a fine choice. One criticism we have is that the motor could have been more powerful than it is, but for men that do not have very thick or saturated hair, it is just more than likely to get the job done well.
- Long handle design.
- Hypoallergenic foil coating.

As you can see, this MANGROOMER body shaver comes with an extended handle for easy back shaving. In addition here are 2 shaving heads that you can interchange according to your needs. They are both shock absorbing so you get a safer shave. In addition, the shaver and especially the neck is so well-designed that it glides over the contours of your body easily.
The long handle locks in place, again increasing the safety quotient. And that’s not all. The real plus about this model is its special quick-charging battery. It recharges very quickly, so even if you are short on time, this feature is a lifesaver.
You really can’t go wrong with this product and if you are one who constantly needs to shave your back, you definitely will appreciate the capabilities of the Mangroomer Ultimate.
- Long handle attachment.
- Rapid charging.
- Shock absorbent shaving heads.

The third product on this list is from the Gillette stable. We do not even need to mention their proficiency in designing all different types of grooming products. Their reputation is pretty well known.
As for as this body hair shaver goes, it is battery operated in which you can use for multiple purposes. Be it for body grooming or for your beard, you can get both done with this.
Whether you use it dry or in the shower, you get the same safe and precise shave. Also, while the head is permanent, this shaver comes with interchangeable combs – 3 in number – for different lengths of hair. In addition it is equipped with Gillette’s patent technology features , BRAUN and Fusion Proglide Power. They allow for a safe and quick shave even for men with sensitive skin.
This is a great first choice for a body groomer and it is from a company that the vast majority of men have come in contact with at least once in their life. Although it doesn’t have a long handle, it’s real strength is shaving pubic hair so if that is what you need, don’t hesitate to grab it.

- Super close shave.

So as you now know, body hair trimming is an essential aspect of male grooming. We hope that our research has prompted you to not only find the right body groomer, but also use it daily.
When you do your homework and get the research done before you go crazy and make a purchase, you are more likely to get the “right one”.
Lastly, keep in mind that these products are meant to groom your body and not your face. That is what separates them from beard trimmers, although both of these types can have attachments that allow you to trim interchangeably.
