I love my textured hair, but when paired with sensitive skin, things can get a bit tricky. Specifically, when talking about textured facial hair, there are few things scarier than trying a new grooming product that can potentially lead to razor bumps and irritated skin.
Nonetheless, I took the chance and gave the King C. Gillette Style Master Cordless Stubble Trimmer a try with my skin-soothing products on deck. Well, I was pleasantly surprised to find that, days after trimming my facial hair in what was seemingly the smoothest grooming experience I’ve had to date, my sensitive skin remained cool, calm and collected.
This affordable all-new grooming tool has so many features that make it a must-buy. So many men with textured hair — especially Black men — shy away from trimmers with foil shaver heads because they tend to cause irritation and cut too close to the skin.
The King C. Gillette Style Master Trimmer comes with three interchangeable combs, making it perfect for all hair types. Best of all, it actually pivots and follows the natural slopes of your face, so you won’t have to tug and potentially cause any irritation to your skin.
This also created a more precise and smooth grooming experience, trimming my hair faster and more closely.
Another feature that I’m sure many other men will love is the Style Master’s waterproof body. It’s actually fully waterproof, making it perfect for use in the shower and at the sink. When the blade gets covered in hair as you’re trimming, simply rinse it all off underwater and get back to work.
The device is also extremely lightweight while maintaining a reasonable amount of heft for you to comfortably trim your face without risking the device flying out of your hands.
You’ll get 45 minutes of trimming per charge, and for those who love to save money — which is just about everyone — you won’t have to buy new blades after each use. The King C. Gillette Style Master trimmer’s blades stay sharp for up to six months.
After using the grooming device myself, I firmly believe that it’s one of the few trimmers out there that’s truly for all hair and skin types.
