As anyone who's tried growing a beard will know, great facial hair takes a lot of work and determination. It’s essential to groom the thing into shape with the right beard shampoo, beard oil and, most importantly of all, a trimmer that will deliver an even shave. I take the new Remington Vacuum Beard & Stubble Groomer for a test drive to see if it’s up to the job!
CHOOSE YOUR WEAPON
If your hair is less dense and you prefer to wear stubble a couple of millimetres from the skin, you’ll want to have a trusty beard trimmer for the task such as the Vacuum Beard & Stubble Groomer by Remington. Not only does the powerful integrated vacuum capture unwanted hair to ensure there’s less mess to clear up afterwards, it also reduces the likelihood of stubble getting trapped in the trimmer – ensuring a smoother shave experience for you. Adjustable in length—offering 2mm to 18mm options—and a naked trimmer guard can snip the hair to a barely-noticeable half-millimetre above the skin. If your whiskers grow fast and full (you lucky bastard!), you can also opt for a bedtime “shave” with a naked trimmer, or with the guard head on its lowest setting. If you don’t expect to trim every day, or if you only need to trim every few days, this device will be helpful in many more ways than an electric shaver.
ALWAYS UP TO THE TASK
Cordless beard trimmers are very much the standard right now, which is great for manoeuvrability… until the thing runs out of charge mid-shave. Luckily the Vacuum Beard & Stubble Groomer by Remington charges in just two-hours thanks to its lithium power. The trimmer will run cordless for 60 minutes, meaning its ideal for busy men on-the-go. Also designed for corded use, a handy travel pouch keeps it safe, whether you’re jet-setting across the world, or getting ready at the gym.
FEED THE BEARD
Even small beards need nourishment. In fact, since those bristles are too short to bend (thus arming you with sandpaper skin), they need to be softened and hydrated more than ever. That’s why beard oils and moisturisers are imperative. Oils absorb quickly into the hair and skin, delivering nutrients and hydration so that the skin stays strong and the hair stays nimble. Moisturisers hydrate the outermost layers of the skin, but are also effective at hydrating and softening whiskers from the root. We recommend using Jack Black Beard Oil. This non-greasy oil softens dry, brittle hair and the skin beneath so you can experience a healthy-looking, nourished beard with added shine and increased control.
