Philips Series 7000 BG7025/13 Body Groomer Overview
Cuts Hair, Not Skin
The human body, with its long limbs and many nooks, crannies and crevices – on and in all of which hair can grow – does not lend itself well to being shaved. Scraping away at body hair with an ordinary razor is a recipe for nicks, cuts and irritation.
Luckily, the Philips Series 7000 Body Groomer features the 4D Contour Following System: a cleverly engineered shaver head that flexes in four directions.
This permits a closer shave with fewer passes and less pressure, minimizing irritation and maximizing results.
Furthermore, the shaver head’s rounded tips glide over, rather than dig into, skin, while a hypoallergenic, micro-perforated foil ensures that only hair makes contact with the razor-sharp, bi-directional trimming blades.
Click-to-Length: One Tool, Five Settings
Being clean-shaven from neck-to-toe isn’t for everyone. Some guys prefer a bit of stubble.
The Philips Series 7000 Body Groomer’s dual-sided design places the aforementioned foil shaver on one end, and a trimmer on the other.
What makes the trimmer stand out is the integrated comb, which adjusts to five length settings – perfect for maintaining your desired look – and, unlike removable combs, is impossible to misplace.
The clipper trimmer end gives you the power to trim down very long, dense chest hair, or pubic hairs, before using the foil shaver end to shave close and style edges.
It’s the clipper on one end and the shaver on the other that gives this body groomer it’s outstanding versatility, and separates it from the competition.
The absent-minded among us will surely enjoy this feature!
Fast-Charging and Above-Average Battery Life
We’re big fans of cordless body groomers – there’s no electrical lead to tangle, and no mains outlet necessary (except, of course, to recharge the battery).
When reviewing the Philips Series 7000 Body Groomer, we found an an above-average runtime of up to 80 minutes, thanks to a high-capacity, lithium-ion battery.
We found this plenty for quick trims throughout the week, and more than adequate for a whole body grooming session.
We were also impressed by how fast the Series 7000 charges, going from empty to full in 60 minutes.
That’s a better than 1:1 charge to runtime ratio. A light on the groomer’s handle indicates its power and battery charge status.
Wet or Dry Operation for Comfort, Convenience and Easy Cleaning
The Philips Series 7000 Body Groomer is one hundred percent showerproof.
That means it can safely withstand use in the shower, with or without shaving cream or gel – and be easily rinsed clean under running water.
Shaving in the shower is a great time saver, and comfortable, too. We found that the Series 7000 works just as well wet as dry on short to medium-length hair, though cuts long body hair a bit better when dry.
Philips Series 7000: Stylish, Comfortable, and Incredibly Efficient
Like all well-designed cordless body groomers, the Philips Series 7000 features an ergonomically shaped handle that flares at the ends and tapers near the middle.
The narrow middle portion and wider ends provide good balance, whether shaving or trimming.
There’s a textured rubber insert, with a diamond-knurling pattern, on the face of the handle and the power button, which reduces slippage and fumbling.
Ready to Hit The Road
Included with the Philips Series 7000 Body Groomer is a simple but effective drawstring travel pouch.
Though lacking in zippers and extra compartments, such features aren’t really necessary – the lack of loose attachments means everything is self-contained.
And the power adapter’s universal compatibility means the Series 7000 can be charged and used anywhere in the world, without a voltage converter.
Finally, the low-maintenance cutting elements never need oiling, making upkeep as simple as keeping the battery charged and the groomer clean.
Philips Series 7000 Body Groomer Pros and Cons
Let’s recap what makes the Series 7000 great, and explore how it could be even better.
Follows your body’s unique contours. The quad-directional, flexing shaver head moves in four directions, allowing more hair to be cleanly cut with less pressure.
Trim down or completely shave off with clipper and double trimmer foil shaver.
Philips powerful motor, built quality, cutting power, and performance provides the you with the ultimate tool for removing hair from the neck down.
Skin-friendly design. The shaver head features smooth, rounded tips and a hypoallergenic foil to protect your skin from the bi-directional blades while maximizing cutting closeness.
A clean shave or stylish stubble. The Philips Series 7000 Body Groomer’s foil shaver cuts hair down to skin level, while the trimmer, with its convenient, integrated comb, trims hair to one of five lengths.
Easy to hold. The ergonomic handle and rubberized sections are comfortable and provide great control.
Excellent battery life. With 60-minute charging and an 80-minute runtime, the Series 7000 Body Groomer is ready to go when you are.
No USB charging. The Philips Series 7000 Body Groomer is not USB-rechargeable – the power adapter requires a mains outlet.
Unfortunately, many electronic devices outside the realm of smartphones, laptops and computing accessories lack this feature. Manufacturers have been slow to catch onto the trend.
Can take a bit of getting used too. Some users report minor skin cuts, and repeated passes to remove all hairs, but we usually find this happens from poor technique. It’s best to trim down long hairs first with the clipper end, then carefully shave with the groomer end for best results.
However, such occurrences are no more common than with other mass-produced shaving devices, and most users report high satisfaction with the Series 7000.
The majority of reviews award this Philips Series 7000 with a top 5 star rating, and an “Amazon’s Choice”, which reflects it’s excellent performance.
We didn’t crown this best body groomer of 2019 for nothing.
Series 7000… The Bottom Line
For a hair (no pun intended) more than the cost of the successful and popular Philips’ mid-range 5000 groomer, and an upgrade the the tt2039/13 model, the new Philips Series 7000 BG7025/13 Body Groomer provides outstanding body shaving and trimming performance.
There are no gimmicky bells and whistles, no superfluous attachments, because everything you need is built-in to this quality, reliable, high performance 2-in-1 shaver and body hair trimmer that will provide perfect manscaping, in or out the shower.
