Best Vacuum Beard Trimmer Reviews

Beard trimmers have a big downside, and a problem that has plagued men since the inception of these awesome little devices, which is that they can make a pretty massive mess. There’s nothing more annoying than trying to clean up little hairs from the bathroom or other areas of the house, and it can be difficult to get rid of. In their quest to be the best, the manufacturers of Beard Trimmers have done their bit to try and minimize this issue, some are waterproof in order to allow you to shave in the shower to avoid mess, and some, the ones we are going to talk about in this post, are vacuum beard trimmers, sucking up the hairs before they fall and cause havoc.

Philips Norelco QT4070 Vacuum Beard, Stubble and Mustache Trimmer

As the name suggests, this Phillips Norelco vacuum beard trimmer does it all, which is great for the hairiest among us. The Norelco brand is one of the biggest and best in the world of beard trimmers and the best (in my opinion) of the Phillips range. It isn’t overly expensive, and offers many great features including a massive 18 length settings, including a tiny .05 setting for those of us who prefer shorter stubble styles and going all the way up to fuller beard styles. Its vacuum feature has been met with huge acclaim and almost every review mentions how well it works.

Other Norelco models also offer this vacuum technology, and this is slap bang in the middle of their range in terms of price, costs though go all the way up to three figures.

Panasonic ER430K

On to the more budget end of the market now and a super little beard trimmer that comes in at under 20 bucks. Panasonic make all kinds of electrical goods and their beard trimmers though not the elite end of the market, they offer exceptional value for money. This trimmer has hypo allergenic blades, a washable head for even more ease in the cleanup and a well working vacuum system.

Wahl Trim N Vac

Wahl are another name synonymous with Beard Trimmers and the Trim N Vac is their answer to the Norelcos. This is a good quality trimmer as you would expect but it isn’t the best, and reviews on Amazon will show you that most people don’t rate it as highly as its competitor. Nevertheless it does offer cordless operation, stainless steel blades and 11 different trimming settings.

Other Vacuum Beard Trimmers

Not every manufacturer has opted for this technology just yet, but I’m sure they will, a clever way of taking away the nuisance of the whole process that is sure to be embraced in a lot of other hair products in the coming years. You certainly won’t regret getting your hands on one of these trimmers.

Braun Cruzer 6 Review

Braun are one of the most famous and successful manufacturer of some of the best beard trimmers on the market, and their Cruzer 6 is a hugely popular model which continues to evolve with every generation. This is not simply a beard trimmer, it is an all round shaver and styler too and allows you the most control possible when it comes to your facial hair. An all in one shaver that promise so much, but does it deliver? We explore in our Braun Cruzer 6 Review:

Adjustable Comb for Different Lengths

The Braun Cruzer 6 offers four different lengths, which isn’t an extreme amount, some trimmers offer dozens! However, for most of our purposes, one of the four lengths will be adequate, and the Cruzer more than makes up for this with a load of other amazing features, plus the lengths are all controlled within the shaver so no need to fiddle around with changing parts or combs.

Fully Submersible

This is a really cool feature that I think more and more shavers and trimmers will begin to take on, the Braun is completely submersible so it doesn’t matter if it gets wet, this is amazing for two reasons, firstly, so that you can take it in the shower and do your trimming there, meaning no annoying cleanup operation afterwards! It also means that you can wash your trimmer and not have to worry about anything going wrong, or electrocution!

Twistable Trimmer

Possibly one of the best features I’ve ever seen on a beard trimmer is the inventive twisting mechanism on the Braun Cruzer 6. What is the purpose of this? Well, it allows you to reach the tougher areas and contours of your face with real ease, plus it means you can have much more control over styling for those more adventurous facial hair styles!


As you would expect from a trimmer that you can take in the shower, this is a fully cordless model and lives in its own little stand that charges it before use. Cords are becoming a thing of the past for many beard trimmers and this model definitely keeps up with that trend.


This is an excellent beard trimmer, which is a part of the Braun Cruzer 6 series of shavers. Inventive designs and features are what make this a good choice for those of us looking for a bit more of a luxury trimmer. It won’t break the bank too much and is worth spending a little bit more on due to its build quality and futuristic design. This model comes with my absolute top recommendation and is a purchase that won’t be regretted.

Remington mb4110 Review

Remington are one of the key players in the world of grooming and especially the world of beard trimmers. Today, we’re looking at the MB41110 model, one of the more stubble orientated trimmers on the market today, perfect for that one or two day stubble look or even for longer beards. This modern, stylish and affordable beard trimmer looks the part, but does it stand up to the test? We explore all in our Remington mb4110 review.

Titanium Coated Blades

Some of the best blades available are on offer in this remington model, their titanium coated, chromium infused blades, which are self sharpening, offer the best quality which means no tugging and never having to worry about the blades losing their edge and not being able to stand up to the job.

USB Charging

This is a feature that many beard trimmers are beginning to adopt, and is a really cool way to make sure you can still properly charge your trimmer even when on the go, it is adaptable to the mains which is the way the majority of people will charge but this is still a cool feature which reminds me of the super-compatible iPhone charging system.

Length Settings

For those looking for precision in their trimming this is a great beard trimmer. Offering lengths from 0.4 mm for the almost not there stubble shave that loads of people will be looking for, all the way up  to 5.5 mm for a slightly longer shave that constitutes a fuller beard. Perhaps not the best trimmer then if you’re looking for a longer beard but still having control over it, however for stubble and shorter beards it is perfect.

What’s In The Box?

As Brad Pitt once said before glancing at his wife’s severed head…”what’s in the box?”. What exactly are you going to get if you purchase the mb4110 beard trimmer?

This trimmer is reliable, good quality and on the affordable side of the market, so you’ll definitely get your moneys worth, plus it comes with a remington manufacturer guarantee.
