If you’re looking for a quality beard trimmer there are certainly far worse products to buy than the Norelco 6 in 1 Grooming Kit. I purchased mine for a mere $13.95 and have found it to be an excellent beard trimmer. With 12 length settings and a strong blade it is a fast and easy way to trim your beard.
Since I decided to sport a beard, but not wanting it to become a shaggy mess finding a good beard trimmer became a requirement. Thus I found myself in the health/beauty section of the local Wal-Mart looking to find myself a good beard trimmer that didn’t cost too much.
I like to look for cheap, quality products. Lo and behold I found myself the Norelco 6 in 1 Grooming Kit. Norelco is a good name when it comes to shaving products, and I was quite pleased with the $13.95 price tag. Thus I purchased the trimmer and all was well.
The set comes with the basic unit, two blades (one smaller one larger), two sizing units each with 6 settings, the power adapter, charging stand comb and brush. One good thing about the Norelco is that the blades don’t require oiling which makes things all the easier for me.
Even the larger of the blades is a little small for my liking, but it is not significantly smaller than your average trimmer blade. The smaller blade of the Norelco 6 in 1 is excellent for doing close cut trimming and shaping of your beard.
Changing between blades is a snap. Just the press of a button, pop it off and put the other blade on. Quick and easy. It is just as easy to change the sizing units. Everything is pretty easy with the Norelco 6 in 1.
The most difficult part of the Norelco system is using the charging stand. The stand itself is just a plastic shell, it is not actually a charging unit in itself. It does provide a place to fix your power adapter so that the main Norelco unit can charge while sitting on the stand, however it is not a very clean fit. Getting it to set in properly is the most difficult part of the system, but by no means a major drawback.
The Norelco trimmer offers a good cut and makes trimming go pretty quickly. I found the blades to provide a much smoother and faster cut than my previous trimmer, a no name that I paid even less for. If you are looking to use the Norelco as a shaver as well be warned the cut is not nearly as clean as you would get with a normal shaver, but it is effective enough for shaping your beard.
All in all the Norelco 6 in 1 Grooming Kit is a good buy. If you are extremely worried about the look of your beard there are even better products on the market, but for the average guy the Norelco 6 in 1 is by all means adequate if not more so. Recommended.
