I was gifted the MANSCAPED Lawn Mower 3.0 groomer by my wife, who asked me to write an honest review of this product for a blog she was involved with.
This isn’t the kind of writing I normally do, so first let me explain why I agreed to this. The Lawn Mower 3.0 is a groin groomer, and I happen to be a gentleman who keeps his hedges well-trimmed year-round. Sometimes, trimmed isn’t enough and this guy requires things downstairs to be baby-seal smooth. Groin groomers weren’t something I was familiar with, as most of my previous grooming was done with nothing more than some basic WAHL clippers and a disposable razor. I’ve mastered that art at this point, but am always reminded of an incident eleven years ago during a cross-country road trip with my brother.
Preparing to hit the town one night in Memphis, TN, I was shearing my sheep in the hotel shower using the above method (let’s be honest, I didn’t want to wake up the next morning and see some lovely Southern belle I had met the night before on the local morning news claiming she had seen Sasquatch, and in Tennessee of all places). I had wrapped it up with the clippers, and had moved on the the straight-razor stropping; i.e., the "finishing touches". Well, one quick slip of the BIC and I had nicked my Nesmonds bad enough that I was, um, genuinely concerned for my well-being. I remember thinking at that moment that there had to be a better way, or maybe I should have just been more careful, but mostly, there had to be a better way. Then my wife and her blog and this Lawn Mower groomer came along, and I took it into my hand and dared it to do better.
I was already digging this thing after just opening the box. Simplicity! A groomer, a brush, a single attachment, an adapter and charging wire, and a charging dock. One button on the groomer with the universal “Power” symbol on it. One single streamlined light to let you know it’s charging (or charged).
The Lawn Mower felt great in my hand. It was just the right size, and had a surface that provided a very secure grip, which was a huge plus because you can use this thing in the shower too. I began my “haircut” utilizing the attachment on the trimmer. There was no pulling, no yanking of hair; only smooth movement up and down my skin with no threat of cutting or damaging my skin. The groomer felt comfortable, and safe. I would imagine the hair length achieved with the attachment on would be plenty short enough for most, but not me. I wanted to push this thing, to really see what it could do. I hesitated for a moment and removed the attachment, grimacing a little as I surveyed the elephantine skin of my lower, lower region, swallowing my anxiety and diving face first into the inevitable heads or tails of what was about to happen, or not happen, next. I lowered the trimmer, bare blades exposed, and thought of Memphis.
There was no pain! No cutting, no nicking, no bleeding, no pinching, just trimming. I was also extremely careful to keep the head of the trimmer angled properly, but was able to get to many difficult-to-reach spots and make them hairless. Without the attachment, the trimmer will get almost as close to your skin as a straight razor would. Like, really close. I decided to test the Lawn Mower in the shower and got it really, really wet, and as advertised, it works fine. I almost forgot to mention that it's got a "flashlight" on it! This was a total surprise to me, because I didn't really read the box before I opened it. The light is in the perfect location (near the blades) and greatly assists in illuminating those little pain-in-the-ass shorties that you were sure you got yesterday, especially in poorly-lit settings like my shower. I still prefer to do my grooming sin agua, but for those who don’t, this might be your jam.
Anyway, as I write this review, I am happy, healthy, and hairless. I’m pretty stoked to have the Lawn Mower 3.0 in my shaving bag now, and I plan on using it regularly. Indeed, this old dog learned a new trick. But don’t tell my clippers that. I haven’t yet.
