Looking well groomed doesn’t always require several hours in front of the mirror. Instead, set aside a small amount of time each week with a face or body gadget to address excess hair. And we get it – shopping for a good-quality tool can be tricky, which is why we’ve rounded up the newest and coolest gadgets on the market right now, so you can fix yourself up and look sharp in a matter of minutes.
Trimming hair all over
You’ll need: Remington Rapid Cut Hair Clipper
Here’s why: The revolutionary curved blade design allows for a much closer and even shave in less strokes, while the ergonomic design makes it easy to hold at whichever angle you please. It also comes with nine different sized combs, making it totally functional for your head and body. Bonus: The waterproof design means you can take it in the shower with you, meaning less clean-up time in the bathroom.
Portability, whether it’s your gym or overnight bag
Here’s why: This nifty razor features five super-thin blades to catch all facial hair in one swipe, and a trimmer on the other side for detailing. There’s also the option to use it with battery power, which activates the ‘micro-pulsing’ technology to reduce friction and increase the razor glide.
Getting to the hard-to-reach spots
You’ll need: VS for Men Easy Trim
Here’s why: It’s an area that’s often overlooked, but most men need some sort of hair maintenance when it comes to the nose, ears and brows. This handheld device can address all of the above, all thanks to the removable heads – pick the angled version to remove nose and ear hair, the comb guide to define the brow area, or the goatee trimmer to clean up around the neck and sideburns.
A seriously smooth shave
You’ll need: Braun CoolTec Shaver
Here’s why: Braun’s latest shaver features a special aluminum bar that instantly cools skin upon contact, and a unique three-stage cutting system that catches hair growing in different directions. It’s also incredibly hygienic, as the alcohol-based Clean & Charge Station will power it up and de-germ it at once, in just an hour.
Combatting razor bumps
You’ll need: Clinique Post-Shave Healer
Here’s why: This fragrance-free formula is great for those with sensitive skin, and can eliminate bumps, ingrown hairs and shaving rash after shaving. You’ll love the minty-cool feeling too – it’s a great way to wake up in the morning.
