Philips NT3160/10 Nose Hair, Ear Hair and Eyebrow Trimmer Series 3000

Philips NT3160 nose hair trimmerThis trimmer from Philips is a fantastic option for a reasonable price. Suitable for use on your nose, ears and eyebrows – if you don’t mind using the same trimmer for all three – it’s well built and cuts hairs cleanly, avoiding pulling hairs and causing needless discomfort.

The cutting section is angled to make it easy to get into the right places and it has protected cutting slots to prevent it snagging on your skin. It also comes with two eyebrow combs so you don’t have to worry about slipping and taking the whole brow off in one go.

It’s waterproof so you can use it in the shower and not worry about where you put it in the bathroom, and the soft grip handle makes it easier to keep hold of when wet.

Panasonic Vacuum Wet/Dry Ear and Nose Hair Trimmer ER430K

Panasonic Vacuum wet-dry nose hair trimmerIf you want something a bit more sophisticated, this trimmer from Panasonic includes a vacuum to capture all the hairs as you trim them. This aims to prevent them from falling out at inopportune times or causing a mess as you use it. This does do a good job, although whether or not it’s something you need will be up to you.

The two cutting blades are set at 60 degrees to help prevent pulling and provide a clean cut, with an extra edge on the top of the blade as well to trim as many hairs as possible. The hypoallergenic blades are housed within a standard rotary head so you don’t have to worry about catching your skin.

It’s a bit bulkier than other trimmers – thanks to the vacuum mechanism – making the design look a bit clunky, but it’s still easy to hold in one hand and how stylish does a nose hair trimmer have to look anyway?
