Panasonic ES-GY50-K body and beard shaver July 2010
Why take two shavers into the shower?
The ES-GY50-K is the latest piece of male grooming kit to emerge from Panasonic. This two-in-one body shaver and beard trimmer promises wet and dry shaving and an extendable handle to reach far-flung body zones.Our researcher delivers his verdict on Panasonic's one-stop barber shop in this First Look review.
Panasonic has rolled out a sleek new body hair shaver and trimmer just in time for the summer that promises any adopters out there a safe, natural and smoother finish thanks to a bendable handle and stainless steel foil shaver.
With a pop-up trimmer system billed by Panasonic as perfect for precision shaving and cutting long hairs, the Panasonic Body Shaver and Trimmer trims to 3mm, 6mm or 9mm using the provided attachments.
This men’s morning power tool is designed to work as a beard trimmer too, with nine different trim lengths ranging from 2mm to 14mm.
Using the Panasonic Body Shaver
100% waterproof and for use in or out of the shower, the Body Trimmer and Shaver certainly cut close for that all-important smooth finish and can’t really be faulted for a lack of features.
It comes complete with a wealth of body hair refining add-ons including removable heads for different hair lengths, a cleaning brush, charging stand, plug and extendable handle.
However, watch out for the beard trimmer’s steely jaws - our tester experienced one or two sharp nips while aiming for a close shave.
Flexible grooming and shaving
The addition of the flexible handle is perfect for getting rid of unwanted hair on the hard-to-reach curves of your underarm.
Given the price (£49.99), the Body Shaver and Trimmer is ideal and far from pricey for any discernable men out there in search of a multi-functional grooming gadget.
It’s easy to clean and provides 30 minutes of battery life once fully charged.
Pros: Waterproof, affordable, flexible handle
Cons: Beard trimmer likes to bite!
