The BALLS Grooming Trimmer: Stop Beating Around the Bush

Today I'm going to wax lyrical about BALLS, a trimmer made for grooming the most sensitive of areas. Gone are the days where I'd nick my flat mate’s razor to shave my balls, (I mean why use your own, right?). But that was 20 years ago. For the past ten years I've been using another electric razor for all over body shaving. (Yes, face, arse, balls, chest, the lot!)

But let’s not beat around the bush. I have just unboxed the starter kit and given my balls a once over with the BALLS Trimmer. Straight out of the box this was fully charged. I pressed the go button and away I went. Like a real man I dispensed with the instructions and only once I unfurled the packaging completely, did I discover a charge lead, safety blades and a mini brush thingy.

In all honesty, the blades are surplus to my requirements. That could be largely down to the finally designed and patent pending SackSafe Technology which features anti-nick blades with micro trimming teeth, to prevent nicks and snags. Although, I was being very delicate, as one should. So, if you're in a hurry or need to be a bit more slapdash, the safety blades are recommended.

The trimmer sits in my palm without compromise. There is a little weight to it which I like, too. This is not a flimsy device nor is it cumbersome. After use I gave the blade a once over with the mini brush and rehoused it back in its casing. The branding is decent. Hardly discreet with BALLS written boldly across the top of the box, but then this is a fun product. Not novelty, but fun. The website has a knowing tongue-in-cheek sensibility also.

With taglines such as 'The Tesla of Ball Trimming', and on its sustainability mandate, '...we plant a tree for every trimmer sold. So, when you trim your bush, we save another,' you know the team meetings are a lot of fun. Other accessories and bundles are on offer. Namely the Cleanse & Recharge body wash that lathers up great, smells vibrant with its invigorating menthol and eucalyptus, energising ginseng, and deodorising witch hazel. I was also sent the Cleanse & Deodorise lotion which I applied after I shaved, and my balls felt invigorated. If they could speak, they'd scream freeeeedom ala Mel Gibson in Braveheart. If they could sing, they'd bang out Feelin' Alright by Joe Cocker on Karaoke. And so on. A worthy investment.
