This is a guest post from our esteemed nail art guru. He’s also apparently a male grooming appliance connoisseur. Here are his musings on the Remington Barber’s Best (aka. the Virtually Indestructible) Beard Trimmer.
I’m normally the kind of person who wonders why anyone would spend extra money when they can get something cheaper that does the same job. But I was given one of these Barber’s Best Beard Trimmers from Remington ($79.95) to review, so I took it for a spin.
The Barber’s Best Beard Trimmer is called the Virtually Indestructible Beard Trimmer overseas. They must have changed the name for Australia because Australians would see it as a challenge.
The trimmer uses a lithium battery, which gives you ample power and good runtime (120 h) from a 4 h charge. The power of this trimmer is fucking good. My last few trimmers I’ve tried made me feel like I was trying to fell a forest with a handsaw, going back and forth over the same spot, but with the Remington trimmer I’ve got a bulldozer, and the forest is gone in no time.
The runtime is also a step up from some other trimmers, which seem to last for about 15 minutes, especially after a couple of years’ usage. Also, it can be used while it’s charging, which is important in case your battery runs out and you’re left with just a Hitler moustache. Unless that’s what you’re after?
