Philips Norelco Bodygroom BG2030

Updated on January 27, 2009

I’ve been sporting a beard look for a long time.  Part of it has to do with my last razor that broke down when it shouldn’t have, and, much to my surprise, I had forgotten to shave with a blade, letting my beard grow out.  I was beginning to look like Jack Shepherd on Lost when he got back to civilization.     


When I got a chance to try out Philips Norelco Bodygroom BG2030, and I was surprised at the number it did on my face.  I have some before and after pictures to prove it.  I even took the before ones badly, just like all the ads do. 


Then I learned that the BG2030 is actually designed for all areas below the neck.  Oh man, did I feel like an idiot.  A clean-shaved idiot, but hey, I used a tool for something it wasn’t originally intended for.  It’s like using a screwdriver for a hammer.  You may be able to pound a nail or two with it, but if you continue to use it in such a fashion, you’ll bust it up. 


So what is the Philips Norelco Bodygroom BG2030 designed for?  Well, the underarms, chest, legs, back, and some area that I would prefer not to mention.  I suppose that as a reviewer I should really try the BG2030 out everywhere, but I just don’t really want to go that in-depth into research.  Considering what it did on my face, I’m sure it will handle everything else.


However, I can’t deny the results on my face, which is where I needed it.  I found that it charged quickly.  Even though it said it takes about 50 minutes for an eight hour charge, it seemed to take a lot shorter time when that. 


The Bodygroom is designed for both wet and dry shaving, and contains some attachments for a little bit of extra trimming power.  An Extra Sensitive trimming comb is designed for the underarms and that one area that I don’t want to talk about, and the Extra Large trimming comb is for the chest, abs, legs, back, and shoulders. 


The Bodygroom also has some hypoallergenic shaving foils that give a “close and comfortable shave with less irritation, even in the most sensitive skin and areas”.  The chromium stainless steel blades give an ultra-close shave that requires no maintenance. 


In short, the Norelco Bodygroom is a razor designed for those who want to shave…everywhere.  If this is something that is right for you, then you might want to check it out on Amazon for a low price of about $49.99.

      Hi Mark. I am 17 years old and looking to buy my first shaver. I am really interested with this product and then only thing that is turning me down is the fact that its a body groomer. I dont see why it can't be used for shaving the neck and chin etc. Since you've used this before, do you think it would cause any harm when used for facial shaving? Thank you in advance for your reply
