panasonic milanoIt isn’t always easy finding the right beard trimmer for you, especially if you are on a budget, but if you’re looking to spend up to $50 then fortunately you can get quite a few features, and on top of this a good build quality, which means that your product will last longer and provide much better value for your money. There is no point in buying a cheap trimmer if you have to replace it constantly. Luckily, you’re in the right place for beard trimmer reviews and info, so without further ado, here are the best quality trimmers you can pick up for under 50 bucks.

Philips Norelco QT4050

Although this is not the only Norelco you can pick up for $50, it is the only one with a vacuum. Vacuum beard trimmers are a huge development that we have seen in recent years. It is designed to make your cleanup easier, as the vacuum catches hairs as they fall having been trimmed. On top of this the Norelco QT4050 has loads of length settings to allow you to experiment, and offering the ultimate versatility and styling options. The blades don’t require any maintenance and are ‘self sharpening’ which is one less thing to worry about.

What else do we like about the Norelco? Besides its build quality, it has a clever wheel which is in place to make your life easier when choosing the length, it locks in place so you don’t have to worry about it switching during your shave. A ‘contour follow’ system makes this great for sensitive skin and an easy shave. A 4 star rating on Amazon given by paying customers speaks volumes, and proves that this truly is a top option on the cheap.

Panasonic ER-GB40-S

A second option for you, this time made by another electronics powerhouse (no pun intended), the Panasonic ER-GB40-S makes the list even though its retail price exceeds $50. You can get it for under this price point as it has been out for a while and the price has dropped. At time of writing this almost has 1/3rd of its retail price taken off. Can’t argue with that.

We like the fact that this is a wet/dry trimmer, not only can it be washed but it can be used in the shower, so you can save on time and also, and perhaps more importantly, mess! Like the Norelco mentioned above, this has a lot of length settings, 19 to be precise, so a length for everyone. This is a cordless trimmer with hypo allergenic blades to avoid any discomfort, and is an excellent model for beginners and expert trimmers alike! 50 minute cordless battery life from a 15 hour charge is sufficient for most of our needs. This also has a detail attachment so you can shave styles such as goatees with no major problems.

Other Models

There are manufacturers who make a load of trimmers at this end of the market, Wahl being one that stick out for great budget options, some of which are even cheaper than $20. Wahl trimmers do have some good options, and come with a lot of attachments, in many cases coming more as beard trimmer kits. The TRYM range of trimmers is another good option, of which there is a full review on the site.
