GIVEAWAY: A Treat in Time for Father's Day - Remington Vacuum & Groom Beard Trimmer

Earlier last week, Remington were on the hunt for "bearded fellas" to trial and test the Remington Vacuum & Groom Beard Trimmer*.  Liam swears by his Remington shaver, so I thought I'd put his name forward to give this a go!  It arrived super quickly, and he has been using it for his past few shaves.  I have absolutely no idea about male electricals, so I thought I'd just pass you straight over to him as a mini guest post from Liam!  If you can manage to stay tuned until the end, there's a little treat so that you can be super organised for Father's Day, or just earn yourself some girlfriend points!


Having already owned a Remington Beard Trimmer, I expected this one to be just as good and I was not disappointed.  It is however rather large; the size doesn't have any impact on the weight though, which is good because the light weight means it's good for travel.  It also comes with a handy storage bag.


When Carly told me how it had a built in vacuum, I imagined it to be really loud and have a large bag attached - it is neither loud, nor attached to a bag.  The vacuum is a small compartment built in just below the shaving head.  I wouldn't say that it's 100% effective at sucking up all the loose hairs, but it does about 88-90% which is good for cleaning up afterwards, as I usually shave in front of the mirror over the sink in my bathroom and hair gets evvverryywherrre.  When shaving, the adjustable trimmer glides quite nicely and smoothly over my face and creates no pull on my beard at all, and the vacuum produces a breeze on my skin which was a nice added bonus. 


Like a lot of guys, I don't like to have a clean shave as I end up looking like ten year old boy.  The adjustable guide on the trimmer is a decent size for quickly shaving, but it doesn't quite get to the same length as my old one which was a bit annoying, as I had to go probably 1mm shorter than usual.  The foil attachment is quite narrow and I imagine it would take a while to shave your full face, so I don't think this is the trimmer for a clean face kinda guy.  This shaver has loads of attachments which are useful if you like to style your beard or have quite a thick, full beard.  I don't really use any special attachments when I shave, but I did especially for this review.  I had a play with the narrow styler which was good, but I felt a bit unsteady with this.  I also used the foil for under my chin and neck which provided a nice close shave.  The colour is also nice!


All in all, I would say this is a pretty good beard trimmer and does its job well.  I would definitely recommend this to anyone who doesn't have a clean shave.

GIVEAWAY

As promised, there is a little giveaway!  So if you are wanting to treat your man, or get super prepared for Father's Day, this giveaway is perfect for you!  To make this fair and square, I will be randomly selecting a winner from all eligible entries using Rafflecopter.  Coming from a girls perspective, this beard trimmer is an absolute God send.  It has come just in time for Liam and I moving in together, because if there is one thing that I can't stand, it's when Liam shaves and doesn't clean up every single hair after he's done!  I hate beard hair!


The prize will be a brand new, unused and opened Remington Vacuum & Beard Trimmer which has been provided by Remington.

This is a UK only giveaway, and the giveaway will end on Monday 9th June, so that I can get this posted out to you in time for Father's Day if you are wanting a gift for then.  There are two mandatory entries for this giveaway, which are:
  1. Be a follower of this blog via Bloglovin'
  2. Be a follower of CEE JAY ELL via Twitter - make sure you leave your Twitter handle so I can easily contact the winner!
Good luck!
