Philips Series 5000 11-in-1 Review: For Beard, Head, Body, and Nose

Let’s face it – looks matter.

We may be loath to admit it, but a person will form an immediate, oftentimes subconscious opinion of you based on your appearance.

Rather than bemoan this societally reinforced superficiality, let’s accept it, and celebrate that the New* Philips Series 5000 MG5730/33 11-In-1 Men’s Grooming Kit contains everything you need to keep the hair on your face and the hair on your head looking its best – all at a fantastic price.

Philips Series 5000 11-In-1 Men’s Grooming Kit Overview

Waterproof for Safety and Convenience

Water and electricity don’t mix. The last thing you want is to worry about splashing water on an electrical appliance and damaging it, or yourself.

Fortunately, the groomer included in the Philips Series 5000 kit is waterproof. That means you can safely use it around running water, and easily clean the groomer by holding it under the tap. I find this much more convenient than fiddling with a cleaning brush.

Makes it Easy to Maintain a Perfect Beard

In case you hadn’t noticed, beards are back in fashion. Don’t get me wrong – a smooth, clean-shaven face feels wonderful – but some men prefer the rugged look of a beard.

However, if you’re going to let your facial hair grow, don’t commit the faux pas of looking like you’ve been trapped in the backcountry for two months without access to a sink and a razor. Beards may be “in”, but they come with a caveat: they need to be well-maintained.

The Series 5000 11-In-1 Men’s Grooming Kit includes a full-sized, 18 length-setting beard and moustache comb that lets you keep your facial hair anywhere between 1 and 18mm long.

For extra precision, use the included detachable stubble comb – its length settings range from 1 to 12mm, allowing for very short stubble all the way up to a three-day beard.

It’s all in the Details

The included 20mm precision trimmer, detail foil shaver and detail trimmer let you take your style from merely “sharp” to “polished and refined”.

From thin lines to well-defined edges, you can give your beard a sharper neckline, taper your sideburns, remove the scruff from the back of your neck, give yourself a pencil-thin goatee and tidy up unruly eyebrows. Even unsightly nose hairs are no match for the included nose hair trimmer.

A Perfect Haircut, Every Time

The included hair clipping comb has 18 different length settings, adjustable by increments of 1 mm, and lets you cut your hair as short 1/32″ and as long as 31mm – perfect for a buzz cut, an undercut, or an all-round, medium-close cropped style.

Powerful and Rechargeable

Some men are blessed (or cursed, depending on how you look at things) with thick, tough hair.

The Philips Series 5000 Multigroom Pro features a one-touch turbo function that increases motor speed and power, letting you cut even the toughest hair with ease – and the rechargeable battery means up to 80 minutes of use on a one-hour charge.

As with other Philips grooming tools, the battery can also be quick-charged in five minutes – perfect if you’ve forgotten to plug the groomer in. That being said, it’s easy to check the battery status: a green light indicates a full charge; an orange indicator light lets you know that ten minutes of usage time remain, and a blinking light shows that the battery is charging.

Shelf-Sharpening and Easy On the Skin

The groomer’s steel blades gently brush against each other, self-sharpening whenever the device is in use.

Not only does this prolong the life of the blades, it keeps the groomer performing at its best – the blades remain sharp, cutting hair without tugging, and the rounded blade tips and combs prevent skin irritation better than the pointed tips and sharp combs found on some inferior grooming tools.

Travels Well – Look Sharp Wherever You Go

The included storage box keeps all the attachments easily accessible when you’re at home. When it’s time to leave town, place everything into the travel pouch, protecting your multigroomer while you’re on the road. You can rest assured that, as with all Philips products, the Series 5000 11-In-1 Men’s Grooming kit is built to withstand the rigors of daily use – and the universal voltage compatibility means you can use it anywhere your travels take you.

The Philips Series 5000 11 in 1 Shaving Kit would make an ideal Christmas, Birthday, or Father’s Day gift for any man.
