Manscaping (yep, there’s a word for it now) has grown from a trend into the mainstream as piercings and purses for men. Technically, what this means for the cosmetic industry is an entire range of products to be manufactured specifically for guys who want to thin, trim or remove the hair on their chest, legs, back or those very sensitive areas you wouldn’t think of attacking with a regular razor.
If you regularly groom your body or are looking into the possibility, you don’t want just any shaver for the job. This is why here I’ve selected the best body shavers for men. Gonna be straightforward and tell you that I, for the obvious reasons of being a girl, haven’t personally tested any of these, however, I did make the list based on friends’ experiences and online research that included reading helpful reviews for hours and hours.
So, whether you’re a guy with an overgrowth of body hair or just someone who wants to keep their pits and pubes under control, you’ll find this list contains something for you. Now, let’s get on to it!
The Best Body Shavers for Men
ManGroomer Ultimate Pro
A reliable shaver with sharp teeth and a powerful motor. You’ll see that it can cut through most hair textures. If you have patches of extra-thick hair, you’ll find the “power burst” will trim it with ease. With the 2-inch shave head, you can trim large swaths of back hair at once.
One of the real deals of this shaver is its flexible design. It has an “elbow” joint that allows you to rotate it up to 135 degrees, making it easy for you to reach your entire back without twisting yourself into knots. The rubber handle is easy to grip securely, though the trimmer is a bit long and bulky. (Definitely not travel-friendly!) Though you only get about 70 minutes of battery life per charge, it does a great job overall.
Has the battery run out mid-shave? The “quick charge” feature charges the trimmer with just enough battery to finish the job, but without having to wait for hours.
In addition to the extra-wide shave head, the trimmer comes with a narrower, bi-directional head to help you get rid of the shorter hairs in smaller, harder-to-trim areas. It’s easy to switch between the heads in a matter of seconds. The elbow joint of the trimmer is easy to adjust, but it will lock securely in place for a more stable, controlled shave. It folds up to store in your bathroom (not small enough for a toiletry kit, sadly), but the handle is easy to maneuver for a more comprehensive shave.
- Flexible design and a comfortable grip
- Includes wide shaver head
- Able to power through the coarse hair
- Bendable up to 135 degrees in any direction
- Decent run time
- Quick-charge battery
- Very long and bulky
- Not designed for facial hair
Remington PG6025 All-in-1 Grooming Kit
If you’re looking for a trimmer that can handle your facial hair and body hair, you’ll love this Remington body groomer. With 8 different attachments to work with: foil shaver, ear and detail trimmer, hair clipper comb, and three beard and stubble combs for adjustable hair length. If you don’t want to go fully smooth, but prefer a bit of controlled hair or stubble, you’ll love the versatility these attachments offer.
The battery life on this trimmer is about 50 minutes of cordless runtime before it needs charging. However, it’s easy to charge and runs very well while the lithium battery is full. The blades are made of durable, rust-resistance stainless steel, with a self-sharpening design that will keep them shaving and trimming efficiently for years to come.
It weighs very little, is comfortable to hold, and is compact enough to fit in your toiletry case. It also comes with a travel pouch to make it easy to take on the go. Though it takes a few hours to fully charge, it’s a great trimmer to have for a quick touch-up at home or on the road.

Braun Cruzer 6
If you want to eliminate ALL body hair, not just trim, experienced manscapers all over the world recommend this bad boy. Its fine teeth are highly efficient at dealing with hair in sensitive areas while reducing nicks and cuts. Thanks to the power of the German-engineered motor, the trimmer will cut through just about any texture or thickness of hair.
The trimmer is designed for a wet/dry shave, meaning it’s fully waterproof and can be used in the shower. It delivers a beautifully close shave, though the trimming settings aren’t as efficient. The Gillette shave heads are very high quality, but you will need to replace them regularly. You’ll find it’s an amazing trimmer to help reduce irritation and get rid of your body hair like a boss.
The trimmer comes with three adjustable combs, though there isn’t as much versatility as you might like. The multiple attachments (shaver, trimmer, combs, etc.) are easy to change out, making for a quick shave.
- A great brand: Braun engineering with Gillette shave heads,
- Wet shave system
- Reduces irritation
- Smaller teeth ensure fewer nicks super smooth and close shave and precision

Philips Norelco Multigroom Pro Trimmer Series 7500
If you want a trimmer that can slice through thick, coarse pubic hair, you’ll want to give this one a try. Thanks to its powerful motor and sharp teeth, it will deal with pretty much any hair texture with ease. Be warned: the teeth are spaced far apart, so there is a higher risk of nicking or cutting the sensitive skin. However, with a bit of practice, you’ll find it’s one of the best shavers for an efficient trim.
The shaver comes with a hypoallergenic foil head that is flexible and easy to maneuver into the hard-to-reach spots. It feels solid in your hand, runs well, and has a decent battery life. Best of all, it takes just 1 hour to charge the shaver to full!
The wet/dry design means this shaver can be used in the shower, as it’s fully waterproof. For more versatility, you can choose from the 18 settings on the beard comb and hair clipper comb or the 10 settings on the body comb. With a full-size and a detailed trimmer, you have total control if you want to shape, trim, or totally remove your pubic hair.
The shaver is wonderfully easy to clean, with a head that you can quickly pop off to rinse out. Whether you shave dry or with gel, lotion, or cream, this is the trimmer to use for dealing with thicker, coarse pubic hair.
- Wet/dry use
- Multiple attachments offer excellent versatility, decent battery life and quick charging time
- Feels solid and reliable
- Higher risk of nicks and cuts due to the far-spaced teeth
Gillette Fusion ProGlide Styler
If you’re looking for durability and high performance, few trimmers can compete with Braun’s engineering. Braun designed and built the trimmer head, while Gillette (arguably the best for razor heads) designed the shaving head. Together, the two manufacturers deliver excellent performance in this compact trimmer.
The size and design of the trimmer/shaver combo make it a good option for those who travel. It’s a fairly compact option, one that will fit into any bag or toiletry kit. However, be warned: it uses an AA battery rather than a built-in battery pack. This means you’ll have to replace the batteries yourself or use third-party rechargeable.
The shaver is water-resistant and can be used in the shower as well as for dry shaving. The slim design is ergonomic and comfortable to hold, and the shaver includes Gillette’s most advanced razor blades for a highly close shave. It’s fully dermatologist-tested and approved, ideal for men with sensitive skin.
- Compact and portable
- Uses Gilette razor blades
- Durable and waterproof
- Affordable and an excellent value for your money
- Not rechargeable
Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7100
This is a high-performance, powerful, and versatile trimmer that delivers a wonderfully close shave. Thanks to the shaving head on one end and the trimmer on the other, you’ll be able to deal with all your body hair using one handy tool.
The trimmer is water-resistant, designed to use for both wet and dry shaving. You can use it with shower gel, shaving foam, or just warm water, and the trimmer can be used in the shower or on dry skin. The ergonomic design makes it comfortable to grip and use. The soft rubber panels and buttons will prevent it from slipping out of soapy hands. For those with sensitive skin, the shave head comes with hypoallergenic materials.
The 7100 delivers 120 minutes of consistent use. Though the charging dock can be a bit tough to use, once you get the hang of it you’ll find it’s highly efficient—replenishing the battery in an hour. Cleaning the shaving head is easy.
One of the main selling points of this shaver is the 8-direction contouring heads. The fact that it can flex and bend in so many directions makes it perfect for shaving and trimming in all those nooks and crannies. The V-track precision blades of the shave head give you a beautifully close shave. The dual-ended trimmer has a way to trim/cut hair and shave it completely off. The trimmer head can be adjusted to any of the five settings, offering total control over body hair length.
Whether you want to go totally smooth or just tidy up your body hair, you’ll find this is easily the best trimmer overall.
