What to use for manscaping? That's why you're here and luckily for you we're the experts on manscaping. There's probably a few more items required to manscape properly than you might realize. Don't let that worry you though. We're going to break down what you need in this quick and to the point post.
Something to consider while reading this post is what kind of manscaping are you trying to accomplish? Manscaping is about more than the groin area. It’s the face, chest, and anywhere you would shave hair for cosmetic effect. So think if you’re looking to go bare in some or all areas or maybe more of a trimmed look.
Below the Belt Manscaping Tools
I figured I would cover this one first since it’s what most people think of when they hear manscaping. There’s really two main tools needed for below the belt manscaping. The absolute must have tool we recommend is the Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7100. It’s a great tool for more than just below the belt and it’s the go to tool we use for ourselves and highly recommend to others.
The body groomer is great for a trimmed look or trimming the hairs down before using a razor. In either case this body groomer can be used for anywhere below the neck. It’s the body groomer I personally own and recommend.
Secondly you’re going to need a good disposable razor. The one I recommend is the Gillette Body Disposable Razor. You can use your own preferred razor but, that’s the one I like to use. Another good razor is the women’s venus by Gillette. I know it’s technically made for women but, it’s great for shaving your testicles.
These two main items are definitely what to use for manscaping and especially for below the belt. For this shaving area I suggest using a good liquid hand soap in place of shaving creams. The soap provide a thin layer that makes it easier to shave the skin for this difficult trouble spot. You can read our more detailed guide to shaving your balls if you’d like more information.

Manscaping Tools for the Face
There are some really great tools to use for the face in this department. I’m not talking about your general shaving razors or safety razors. I’m referring to some good electric shaving razors, beard scissors, and oils.
If you want to save money over the long haul you’ll invest a little into a good electric shaver. As much as we have to shave these tools are very much worth their price tag.
The Braun Series 7 790cc-4 Electric Foil Shaver is a monster of an electric shaver. It’s definitely the what to use for manscaping your face. It’s got rave reviews by every guy that’s used it and it’ll last you a very long time. I can’t help but think of all the money saved by using an electric shaver!
For those with the bearded lifestyle just make sure to keep your beard well maintained. While opinions are changing a lot of the workforce today still don’t like beards. However with the swaying opinion moving more into our favor we can help by making sure the beards are maintained very well.
Using a great pair of beard scissors and some great beard oil to keep your beard looking great, smelling great, and you looking professional. That’s the key to this bearded lifestyle.
Manscaping Tools for the Body
There are definitely a wealth of options out there to choose from for body tools. You really only need an electric body groomer and a good disposable razor. Both of which we talked about earlier in this post.
With there being so many options I wouldn’t get yourself confused or spend to much money on a body groomer. The Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7100 is really the clear winner in this department for what to use for manscaping.
Some things to Avoid
Now that we’ve covered what you should be using for manscaping. Let me make sure there’s some things you don’t use for manscaping. I’ve seen and heard of some bizarre things so let’s make sure you don’t end up one of those funny stories people tell their friends.
Don’t try to use an electric shaver on your balls. You’re begging for nicks and cuts and it just requires some awkward positions that you won’t want to be seen in. It also won’t even get the job done like you’d like it. Stick to a good razor & hand soap. Also try and do it while in the shower after your skin is warmed up.
Don’t use Nair or similar products on your genitals! A big no no here and it’s even printed on the bottles of the products. Even though it’s stated on the bottle people still try it. Do yourself a favor and save yourself the trouble. It’s definitely a what not to use for manscaping.
