All you need to know about trimmers

Beards and moustaches are back in vogue in the realm of men’s fashion. There are a myriad beard styles like Bandholz, Razors edge, Short and Tapered, Faded, Thin, Bold and Thick and many more, which have become a rage for some time now. In a scenario like this, among all the grooming tools available for a man, a trimmer can be his best friend. A trimmer has a small high velocity motor and adjustable blades. The to and fro movement of the blades catches and cuts the hair. It comes with a head and attachments. The various comb attachments can be used for a detailed styling. The good news is that superior quality trimmers like the Philips Norelco are easily available in the market.
The top four primary benefits of using a trimmer are discussed below:
  1. Gives you your signature style: You can shape and detail your beard and moustache the way you like with a trimmer. A shaver can only give you a clean shave, but you can use a trimmer to shape your hair. You can save your time and money by not going to expensive salons, and still bringing out the creativity in you by making your signature styles.
  2. Acts skin-friendly: Unlike the razor which puts pressure on the skin, resulting in nicks and cuts, a trimmer glides smoothly. It is not only soft on the skin, but it also ensures that it doesn’t darken the skin. There is no way the blades can cut into your skin as its movement is flexible and the speed can be controlled. There are no chances of rashes, allergies and the problems of ingrown hair as well.
  3. Serves many purposes: A trimmer is not just for the beard and moustache. Thanks to the different adjustable heads, it can be used to trim the hair up the nose, ears, armpits, chest and the hair down the nether regions as well.
  4. Practical: Since it is portable and light weight, it is handy, especially while travelling. You can just shove it in your bag and go on. It is also time saving since all it needs is a few glides for a smooth look. Trimmers are available as both corded and battery-operated versions. They are easy to maintain and you do not need a shaving base to trim your hair. When compared to shavers which are pricier and whose expensive blades need to be changed regularly, trimmers are easy to maintain. The best thing is that the trimmer blades are self-sharpening.
There are also few hassles with a trimmer.
  • You can only trim your beard after it has grown to a certain length.
  • It cannot give you a very clean shave. Even if you attempt a clean shave with it, it takes a lot of time.
  • It cannot exfoliate the dead cells.
Even with these minor loopholes, a trimmer can be one of the best grooming options for the modern man.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
