Philips are a popular and successful brand for very good reasons.

Philips feel confident with this product that you will only need one blade for all your shaving a grooming needs. The shaver and trimmer makes full use of the company’s patented technology that ensures every single shave is as close as it can be, giving you as many as 200 cuts per second. The rechargeable Li-on battery gives you 90 minutes of runtime for just an hour of charge and the blade lasts for as much as 4 months, when used for 2 full shaves every week.
Babyliss for Men Super Stubble
As the name suggests, the Babyliss for Men Super Stubble is a great choice for the man in your life who likes having a light layer of stubble. However, it can be used for a whole lot more also. Before we go any further with this one, it is one of the more expensive models on the market, but in terms of the performance, close shave and the features it gives you – we are sure you will agree that it offers great value for money. With the length control you are able to choose from the 0.4 mm stubble look. However the motorised control and memory function enables you to keep your beard longer as you desire. You actually get a selection of 24 different settings for length.

You can keep an eye on the status thanks to the LED screen. Additionally it also shows you the current cut length the shaver is set to.
ER-GB40 Wet/Dry Hair and Beard Trimmer with 19 Adjustable Settings – Blue by Panasonic
Along with Babyliss and Philips, Panasonic are another industry leader in the grooming industry. The reason we have highlighted the ER-GB40 Wet/Dry hair and beard trimmer is hinted in the name – it can be used as both a wet or dry razor. With it’s low price tag, this means it is an ideal model if you are looking for a high performing, versatile shaver that can be used in a variety of different ways and is by a brand you can trust, but for a very affordable price.

Our Choice Of The 3 Best Beard Oils On The Market
As you will know if you have read any of the other informative articles or reviews on our site, or elsewhere for that matter, a lot more is involved in growing a beard than just simply growing it. You need to put a lot of time and effort into the process to help keep your beard healthy and looking great. This is why the men in your life need and deserve a beard oil, if they don’t already have one.
Below we have gathered the 3 beard oils that we feel are the best on the market.
Beard Oil by Percy Nobleman – Newly Available Signature Scented Blend. (100ml)
As you are going to be sticking beard oil on your facial hair and skin, it is important that you choose a product that will be kind and not toxic. The men in your life will not be happy if you buy them a product that brings them out in a rash or that does not prevent beard itch and beard dandruff. This oil has been made with the every man in mind and has received many rave reviews for very good reasons – it is a great product.
This is why you should consider Percy Nobleman’s beard oil. It has been made using only the finest quality of organic and naturally sourced ingredients, including enriching and nourishing oils such as Argan, Avocado, Almond and Jojoba. As well as helping to nourish beards, it is also good for the other main purpose anyone should use beard oil – styling and shaping. If you want the guy in your life to look better and feel better, then give special consideration to this beard oil. And don’t worry about the oily content, it has been carefully designed to be easily absorbed into hair and skin, leaving no nasty residue behind.
Da’Dude Da’Beard Oil Conditioner, Softener & Moisturiser for Your Unique & Beautiful Beard or Moustache in a Top Class Gift Box (50 ml)
In the past, many beard oils have not been so kind on the skin and hair. They may well have helped style facial hair well, but consisted of harmful and unpleasant ingredients that caused more problems than they actually solved. Da’Dude know too well about the problems that can arise if a product is not sensitive and thoughtfully made, problems such as beard dandruff and beard itch and that is why they guarantee that their products only include high quality natural ingredients.
Further to looking after beards, facial hair and skin; Da’Dude also know how important it is that a beard oil has a nice scent. Another complaint of many other products in the past is that they have very synthetic and unpleasant scents. Da’Beard Oil is different, as it has a very subtle scent that can easily be used in place of the man in your life’s normal fragrance. Many have even commented that it could be considered a sexy scent. With rave reviews and a low price tag, we are sure it is easy to see why we highlighted this particular oil.
Gentleman’s Face Care Club Beard Oil Review
Obviously the biggest concerns you should have when looking for a great beard oil for that important man in your life or whoever you are purchasing one for, is that it not only helps them to style and shape their beard effectively, but looks after their beard and skin in the process. This is why you should do your level best to stay clear of any that include harmful or just unpleasant, man-made ingredients. Especially when there are affordable beard oils such as the Gentleman’s Face Care Club entry to the market, that consists of only natural ingredients.
As there are two reasons why any man, as we have discussed earlier, should use beard oil – to nourish and keep their beard healthy and to style it; the ingredients are paramount to it being successful on both counts. Oils that do not look after your skin and hair but do a good job of styling your beard, are only good in the short term. It is better to invest in a product that has a short list of ingredients that feature naturally sourced items such as GFCC’s oil which includes Apricot oil, Jojoba oil, Rose Hip oil, Tea See oil and Grapeseed oil.
Our Choice Of The 3 Best Beard Accessories On The Market
So you have ideas for razors and beard oils, what else do you need to get the man in your life to give them the fullest and best grooming experience possible? Accessories, that’s what. Below we have highlighted what we feel are the 3 best beard accessories on the market right now, that we are sure that special person will love.
Groomarang Beard Styling and Shaping Template Comb Tool
It may look like a suped-up set square or something similar, but, the Groomarang beard styling and shaping template comb tool is something you should seriously consider for the bearded men in your life. With a two sized teeth comb, it enables the user to shape and tame their beard, regardless of what length or condition it is in. When using one of the above oils, this comb and the way the teeth are set, can help work the oil into skin and hair better.
When shaving, stray hairs often seem to be left on the skin…that is unless the Groomarang comb is used, which will collect any strays up and off the skin. Groomarang have been clever to ensure that this comb can be used safely and effectively anywhere around the face and neck. So whether they are styling, shaving or trimming, this comb tool will prove to be useful on the neck line, jaw line and anywhere else, regardless of beard and moustache style.
Baxter of California Beard Comb (3.25″)
Don’t let pictures of this attractive and extremely practical little comb decieve you. it may look like just a normal, well made comb; but, it is actually a whole lot smaller and designed solely for grooming and brushing moustaches and beards. Painstakingly handcrafted in Switzerland, it features rounded tips and tapered teeth that will ensure that every use is as comfortable and caring as the last.
For such a small and affordable item, you can really tell holding it, as many customers have commented on Amazon UK, that a lot of time, patience, hard work and skill have gone into making this comb. Get the guy you are buying for something he will treasure and will let him know you like and admire his beard and know how important his grooming process is to him.
Tweezerman ‘His Tweezerman’ Moustache Scissors with Grooming Comb
Time to think outside the box a little, as although our site is all about beard trimmers, we feel this is a nifty little product and very quirky too. Moustaches can be a real pain in the neck…or pain in the top lip to trim and shape. That is why this product, the His Tweezerman Moustache Scissors and grooming comb is so appealing. Small enough to reach those hard to reach places around nostrils and just above the lips, with big enough holes for thicker, fatter manly fingers; this is a great addition to any man’s grooming arsenal.
If they are quite an old school guy for instance, they may like from time to time, doing things manually. There is a certain subtle and quiet comfort to clipping at your facial hair with a precise little pair of scissors and comb. especially on those days when he has all the time in the world to prepare himself for the world.
