Gifting Inspiration: Philips Beard Trimmer 7000 Review

Everyone often complains that men are so hard to buy for. Even us men don’t know what we want! We guess this could part-explain why the famous LYNX toiletry sets are so popular at christmas. After using the Philips Beard Trimmer 7000 for some time now, it’s a product we truly recommend as a gift for yourself or someone else.

Where do you start when it comes to looking for a gift for the men in your life? Or a gift that you would like to receive yourself this Christmas? Our advice would be to take inspiration from something that you use everyday and holds genuinely value, something you will make the most of.

Electrical beard trimmers are something that us guys use regularly, 2-3 times a week dependant on the style you’re going for.

Beard trimmers make for a great gift as you know it is something they will use regularly. Beard trimmers like the Philips Beard Trimmer 7000 hold a medium to high price tag, making them a ideal present to gift someone. A perfect gift for a guy you’re close to: dad, brother, husband or partner for example.

We were recently introduced to Philip’s new innovative beard trimmer, the Philips Beard Trimmer 7000. Also known as the trimmer with a built in vacuum.

There is no looking back once you’ve tried the Philips Beard Trimmer 7000. We can’t recommend it enough for a gift for yourself or someone else this Christmas.

Philips Beard Trimmer 7000 Review


The most annoying thing when it comes to beard trimming/shaving has got to be the mess the trimmed hairs make on the bathroom sink. Who can be bothered to scrub the sink every time you trim your beard?

The Philips Beard Trimmer 7000 completely solves the ‘messy hair’ issue due to it’s integrated vacuum which captures up to 90% of cut hair.

Not only does it capture the hairs but it also means that you aren’t restricted to shaving over the sink either. Ideal if you only have 1 bathroom or don’t have suitable lighting or a mirror for shaving.

The Philips Beard Trimmer 7000 has up to 20 different shaving lengths. Easily changeable due to the rotating, zoom wheel. Simply twist the dial/wheel to the desired length, these range from 0.5mm to 10mm, increasing in 0.5 mm intervals to give you precision for a perfect trim.

So, Hows The Cut?

The Philips Beard Trimmer 7000 offers a really close shave due to the design of the shaving guide.

The Trimmer has a lift and trim system which raise the hairs and guides the hairs in to the double-sharpened stainless steel blades. Guaranteed to result in an even shave, every time.

We like to make the most of this feature by shaving off the hairs on the neck completely at a length of 0.5mm. The shave is so close you could pass it off as being clean shaven. We then opt for a 3mm to 3.5mm shave on the face to leave your stubble at optimum length.

Maintaining The Philips Beard Trimmer 7000

Like anything that vacuums, the device will need to be emptied from time to time. Less often than you think, though.

ThePhilips Beard Trimmer 7000 is really easy to empty, you simply life the top off and tip the hairs into the bin. The product also comes with a brush, so really easy to tidy and clean the beard trimmer.

You can pick up the Philips Beard Trimmer Series 7000 from amazon for around £50-£75, dependant on if the product is on promotion or not.
