Cue the relieved sighs from all bearded males, exasperated girlfriends, and on-the-go travellers - Remington (Remington NZ) has finally introduced a mess-free approach to male grooming. The brand was the first to introduce the electric shaver in 1937, and continues to excel in product innovation with its latest launch.
Whether sporting a hipster beard or corporate stubble, the new Remington VacGroom 2-in-1 Beard Trimmer has been designed to cater to every male groomer. The Red Dot Design awards would agree, with the brand taking home an international award for its form and functionality. The multi-functional trimmer not only helps to shape a beard, but saves time and mess with a built-in vacuum chamber, capturing cut-off hairs during the shave.
Every man at some point will need to trim and clean up his beard as hairs grow at different rates,” says Spectrum Brands product manager Martin Szymiczek. Remington has provided the ideal product solution for this trimming need, and a unique innovative function that allows you to trim minus the post-shave clean up.”
The beard trimmer and shaper features vacuum technology to collect stubble as it works, diminishing the post-shave clean up. It features two vacuum attachment heads, a 32mm trimmer to maintain length and thickness, and a 16mm detail head for shaping and detailing.
[The] vacuum sucks up hairs during beard trimming and stores the cut hairs in a large storage capacity chamber,” reveals Szymiczek. Self-sharpening stainless steel blades are complemented by an adjustable beard comb, incorporating eight pre-set lengths to tackle coarse, unruly hair.
The battery life is long lasting, with rechargeable lithium power that has a 60 minute run time and four hour charge time, providing three times longer battery life compared to NiMH rechargeable batteries. On top of this, a high velocity motor drives the trimming blades and the vacuum fan at optimal speeds for maximum performance and suction, an innovative dual purpose function out of one extreme performance motor,” adds Szymiczek.
The product comes with a convenient storage pouch that is ideal for travel, housing all additional components.
The VacGroom is available now from all leading electrical retailers and comes with a two-year manufacturer's warranty.
