The Lawn Mower 2.0 is the Below-the-Belt Trimmer for All Your Manscaping Needs

Guys, please stop using your head-hair trimmers for your nethers. Not only is it unsanitary, but it’s also totally not necessary — there are gadgets that have been invented solely for trimming downstairs. One of the newest (and, in our opinion best) electric trimmers for your twig and berries recently dropped its second iteration, Manscaped’s The Lawn Mower 2.0.

Manscaped The Lawn Mower 2.0 Electric Trimmer

Unlike that Wahl hair trimmer meant to give you a fade, The Lawn Mower 2.0 was designed to be used on the most sensitive parts of your body and features a “skinsafe” anti-nick feature that prevents nicks and cuts to your groin. It also has features to help eliminate any tugging, pulling, or tearing that can often occur with other electric trimmers. Beyond that, the trimmer can be used wet or dry (hello shower shave), has a snap-in blade system which makes changing blades a breeze, has two detachable guide combs with four length settings, and a non-slip, ergonomic handle to keep the trimmer steady even when you aren’t.

Further Reading

Manscaped sent us a sample of The Lawn Mower 2.0 for our own testing purposes and we can confidently say that we experienced no adverse effects when using the trimmer. There were indeed no nicks, cuts, tugging or pulling. Just a clean trim in a relatively quick amount of time. It sure as hell beats getting down there with a pair of shears or (wince) an actual razor. Clean-up is also a breeze with The Lawn Mower 2.0 Since it’s waterproof, a quick rinse and a shake is really all you need to do to make it ready for your next trim, but if you’re dedicated, you can go in for a deeper clean with a small brush.

Finally, the trimmer is cordless, making it super easy to get into those nooks and crannies that you might not otherwise be able to reach due to a cord entanglement.

The Lawn Mower isn’t the only product we loved from Manscaped. They also sent us their range of grooming products and, after testing, we can’t get enough of the brand’s Crop Cleanser Body Wash.

Not only does this body wash moisturize and cleanse, but it also balances your skin’s PH, and is literally the best smelling men’s body wash we have ever encountered. It smells as if a manly forest made love to a seaside orchard and produced a baby in the form of the Crop Cleanser. Seriously, even if you don’t care about manscaping or trimming, you still have to wash. So why not wash with the best?

Does beard growth oil work? What you should know
Man putting beard oil on his beard.

Growing the perfect beard is a lifelong quest for some, and though there are plenty of tips to help you grow a beard, sometimes you can benefit from a little outside intervention. You might have seen adverts for beard growth oil and wondered if that would help you grow a thicker and more lustrous beard, along with various other oils for softening or brushes and other tools to help maintain your skin.

There's a lot of options when it comes to the world of facial hair grooming, because for your beard to look full and well groomed, you need to not only trim it to the right shape but also make sure that both the hair and the skin of your face are well looked after and in good condition. You might also just need to be patient, as it can take some time for facial hair to grow in to the length that you want. The basic advice for growing in a beard that looks great are to give it time and make sure you're taking care of your health -- like getting enough sleep, eating a health diet, and taking exercise. But we all know we're supposed to do those things anyway, and there are some products that can help give your beard a nudge along the way.

How often should you change your razor blades?

It's a hassle and an annoyance, but when it comes to your daily shaving ritual something that you absolutely don't want to skip is changing out your razor blade. Trying to shave with a dull razor is bad for your skin and can cause razor bumps, plus creating a higher likelihood of problems like infections, and it will do a poor job of removing hair, resulting in a patchy shave. If you're not up for trying out a straight razor, then you'll need to get into the habit of regularly swapping out the replaceable blades on your razor or using fresh disposable razors instead. Knowing when to swap out your old blades for new ones will help keep your skin happy and your face looking its best, so our guide can help you work out how often you need to change your razor blades.

How often you should change your razor blades
According to the American Academy of Dermatologists, you should change your razor blades or throw away disposable razors after every five to seven shaves. High-quality razor blades should last five to seven shaves if you take care of them properly and keep them clean. However, cheaper disposable razors may wear out sooner.
Signs it’s time to change your razor blades include skin irritation after shaving, a less close shave, patchy areas or spots missed, skin that still feels rough after, dullness of the blades, feeling hairs are getting pulled instead of cut, and excessive friction of the blades across your skin that it feels like you have to drag it over your skin.
Moreover, a razor that has an accumulation of gunk that can’t be rinsed away should be immediately discarded, as this causes nicks and infections by dragging unevenly across your skin and introducing harbored bacteria into your pores.
