User Reviews

Customers who have used the Bodygroom Pro have given it pretty stellar reviews around 80-90% of the time.

They generally rave about its ease of use and the lack of associated rashes in the “tender” areas when using this device, as well as its multi-functionality with the two ends of the groomer providing different cutting and trimming features.

Battery life seems to cause no issues and works as advertised.

Some people commented that the unit was a little unwieldy but that may be the price paid for its functionality, with the 2 shaving mechanisms in one.

Overall most people find it sturdy but a few people have commented that a couple of the parts, like the blade guard, seem a little flimsy.

This won’t be for every man, that’s for sure, but those who are looking for a high performance, good value, all-over body shaver, will not go far wrong with this device.
