No matter what they say, keeping clean is just as important as keeping fit. In fact, if you’re as active as I am when it comes to physical activities, keeping clean, especially through manscaping and grooming is important.
While the decision is subjective, I always prefer shaving my body on a daily basis to reduce the friction and tugging caused when working out, which often makes any enjoyable activity uncomfortable. Instead of using trimmers meant for the face, I prefer using body trimmers, one of which is MANSPOT’s Premium Body Trimmer, the main agenda of this guide.
Though it’s a fresh face in the industry, this trimmer has everything and more to offer as a companion for fresh trims all over the body, even around the privates. A magnificent housing doesn’t just carry the device, but also carries various perks; all of which I’ll be putting to the test and unveiling using this walkthrough!

A Rich And Fruitful Revelation Of My Experience With Manspot Premium Body Trimmer!
Today’s highlight is MANSPOT’s Premium Body Trimmer, a device that strictly caters to men. Upon first glance, I can’t help but notice the similarity it has to MANSCAPED’s Lawn Mower 3.0, with a curvy handle and a minimal layout. The device also mimics the aura of the Lawn Mower 4.0, especially when you look at its button configuration.
Although it is quite affordable, MANSPOT still prioritizes creating a strong first impression. It does so by coming in a shade of mint green, and a shade of charcoal black.
While subjective, I feel that the black one is what I would side with, mainly due to how premium it looks.
Despite carrying tons of similarities with the top-grade brand, MANSPOT and its body trimmer have the edge with its price tag. While the following segments will unveil more of what I discovered during my time with the device, the table below covers a series of features that you might want to keep in mind throughout the revelation.
Key Features Of Manspot Body Trimmer For Men
Packaging: The norms and additives inside the box
Alongside the device is a set of comb guards; each of which serves a different purpose. The one attached to the device is the 1.5 mm guard, while the next best attachment equates to a 3mm guard. The other two carry out 9mm and 12mm shaves overall, which are typically great if you want to reduce bulk, but not aim for a clean shave.
In addition to the four horsemen known as comb guards, this MANSPOT trimmer offers a charging cable without an adapter, and a cleaning brush. Had it come with an adapter or a wall charger, I feel that MANSPOT would’ve left behind a stronger impression.
Maneuverability and labels of comb guards
Though it does lack essentials involving power adaptors, I must say that the attachments are quite staggering. They may be made of plastic, but adjust perfectly to the shaving head of MANSPOT’s body trimmer.
Each attachment, irrespective of how hefty it may be, secures an incredible grip without falling apart. Even in the shower, the larger attachments seemed to stay put when I was reducing bulk from my inner thigh.
It is the 1.5 mm guard that secures the strongest hold, though, due to carrying a size that fits like a glove with the blade system of the device. The attachment has catered well to me and my sensitive body.
Since the most important part of any trimmer is its blade, it would only be fair if I start assessing MANSPOT’s body trimmer by looking into the blade, which is extraordinary for its value.
While the device doesn’t have engaging software to control the speed settings or provide an extra layer of protection against injuries, MANSPOT’s trimmer contains a ceramic-infused blade with an anti-nick coat towards the base of the blade.
If you’re wondering why body trimmers don’t condone stainless steel anymore, it’s because stainless steel is less lenient when gliding past sensitive areas.
In addition, ceramic blades, unlike the former, not only provide a seamless operation, but also provide a quick session without heating up during prolonged hours.
The blade feels rather soft and painless to manoeuvre through my chest, forearms, and legs. Though it provides excellent results when navigated around my privates, the blade does sting a bit when used in hard-to-reach areas.
In due time, the blade does feel more like a cushion, however, since the edges aren’t sharp, but sturdy.
The device provides a clean shave, in my opinion, but not a close one. It’s still a bang for its buck, though, with an anti-nick coating that saves sensitive skin from getting scratched.
Once used, I love the easygoing clean-up process of the device. What leads the way is the detachable blade, which doesn’t come off completely, but detaches itself with a solid hold.
Since the device is waterproof, all you have to do is give it a thorough rinse once the session is done. To get rid of the stubborn pieces, wipe the blade with a brush.
Performance: Motor & Navigation
I am truly amazed by how well this device holds itself during operation, which is surely led by the motor it contains. The motor moves at a rate of 7000 RPM, covering tracks and pieces of hair like there’s no tomorrow.
The speed really shows when I use the device on an even surface, such as on either side of the pecks. In sensitive areas, I suggest you use MANSPOT’s trimmer carefully, since applying too much force can leave behind signs of redness or itchiness.
Overall, I like how smooth the navigation is. The size of the device is perfect, too, fitting perfectly into my hands. This not only feels comfortable, but also makes for a successful session with top-notch results.
Battery Life and Revival
Just like most successful grooming tools, MANSPOT’s trimmer is enriched with a Li-Ion battery, allowing it to operate for 90 minutes at a time. While all 90 minutes aren’t necessary for a full body session, the fact that MANSPOT ensures longevity and a handsome runtime shows just how much it cares about its audience.
The previous feature seems to be music in the ears of beginners, enabling them to take their time during each shave. It also works wonders for me, especially when I’m gliding through the hard-to-reach areas.
While the device does provide a charging cable to rejuvenate the battery life with, I feel that a charging station would’ve reduced the time taken for the battery to replenish its health to the fullest. Nonetheless, given the way it is built, I’d wait a couple of hours for it any day.
Weight and Feel
When it comes to weight, the device feels heavier than lightweight companions such as the Lawn Mower 3.0 and Meridian’s Ball Trimmer. It also loses out to Manscaped’s Lawn Mower 4.0, but feels much more natural in hand due to its structure.
Not only does the curvy handle adjust perfectly to the size of my palm, but it also provides me with a relatively impressive grip, despite lacking a compartment for smooth navigation, even under difficult circumstances.
I adore the matte black paint job, but do feel that the device draws marks quite easily. Every time I used it with clammy hands, the imprint of my fingerprints was attached to the handle of MANSPOT’s body trimmer.
Additionally, had they used the rubber grip coating around the power button and indicator all over the device, I feel that the MANSPOT body trimmer would’ve provided users with more control when in use.
Ergonomic Design & Button Configuration
As stated earlier, this MANSPOT trimmer reminds me of the Lawn Mower 3.0 and 4.0 due to its blade system and housing. When it comes to looks, however, it seems to adopt more from the successor’s craftsmanship.
With matte-based flooring and a handle that descends around the bottom, this device looks quite premium for how affordable it is. It follows the same mantra as most top-grade body trimmers, making space for only a power button and other necessities such as a battery indicator.
I’m impressed at how much convenience MANSPOT’s trimmer tends to provide, mainly by taking note of the little things. One of the many features that makes it a viable and admirable body trimmer is its battery indicator, which resembles the one engraved in Meridian.
With 3 LED bars, MANSPOT’s trimmer drops hints on the device’s battery life. While the craftsmanship of this instalment could have been much better, the fact that this body trimmer makes space for such a huge game-changer is sufficient for me.
Even prominent body trimmers, such as those involved in the Norelco franchise, failed me multiple times due to lacking a battery indicator or blinking only when the device was out of power. MANSPOT, however, have outdone themselves yet again with this addition.
Wired with IPX7 housing, life beyond land is definitely something that can be obtained with MANSPOT’s body trimmer. In other words, if you’re forte is partaking in wet shaves over dry shaving sessions, you can easily take MANSPOT as your companion.

The way in which it deflects running water is something that moves me. Thanks to the matte-based housing, MANSPOT accumulates a fraction of water, even when used in the shower.
An important element to take note of is the duration, which shouldn’t exceed 30 minutes. It may be eligible for wet trimming, but might deteriorate and eventually need replacement if dunked in water for over the time limit.
Additional Perks: Silent Operation
MANSPOT leaves out tons of benefits within its system and its packaging, such as a travel lock feature, a charging station, blade oil, and so on.
However, one issue that it successfully cancels out is noise, mainly by providing a noiseless motor; an attribute that many don’t pin their focus on.
This perk is quite therapeutic in my eyes, since various devices in the same pool, such as OLOV’s body trimmer, can spike one’s anxiety issues with the sound it makes due to its motor.
Manspot vs. Manscaped (Lawn Mower 4.0 & Lawn Mower 3.0): How Well Does Manspot Cope With Manscaped?
Since MANSPOT is now regarded as one of the best brands to rely on when partaking in body grooming, it would only be fair to compare it to the leader of the league, MANSCAPED.
While a 1v1 is often perceived as the norm, I’d like to tweak things by a tad bit for this review. In other words, to show just how compelling and worthy MANSPOT and their trimmer are, I’ll be running a thorough assessment on how MANSPOT’s trimmer copes with the Lawn Mower 4.0, and why it feels rather similar to 3.0.
To make things more eventful rather than heated, I’ll also be bringing to light the mutual traits MANSPOT’s candidate shares with MANSCAPED.
Blade system and upkeep
MANSCAPED always has the upper hand with SkinSafe technology, a software incorporated in the blades of the Lawn Mower 3.0 and 4.0.
With the help of the software, not only are shaving sessions more efficient and enjoyable, but also injury-free. For sensitive skin, the Lawn Mower 3.0 and 4.0 feel much better, thanks to their anti-nick shaving guard-infused ceramic blade. Through the help of a rinse and cleaning brush, it is also possible to keep the blades as good as new.
On the other end is MANSPOT, leading the way with an anti-nick ceramic blade. Though the device might cater to those working under a tight budget, users might still be prone to incurring injuries when using MANSPOT’s trimmer in poor form.
Cleaning is exciting, though, since the detachable blade hangs from the rear and is waterproof.
Design, weight, and ease of use
When it comes to MANSPOT, the trimmer feels more like a long-lost brother of the Lawn Mower 3.0. The device looks quite similar, with a rubber-coated handle that covers the power button.
If you’re used to dealing with trimmers, MANSPOT’s body trimmer shouldn’t feel any different.
I personally feel that MANSPOT’s device feels extremely easy to use, despite being heavier than the other two involved in this affair.
Using it is a breeze, however, since the matte-based handle feels rather comfortable to navigate.
The Lawn Mower 3.0 might not have all the technologically advanced features as its successor, but is perhaps the best device to use if you prioritize usability only. Weighing in at only 4 ounces, this device is one of the lightest body trimmers I’ve ever used.
The way it feels is kind of indescribable, but equates to a feather if you ask me; soft, light, and easy to hold. The device stays resilient in the shower as well, thanks to the rubber grip it runs heavy on.
While the device carries a leaner build with a plastic-infused structure, the Lawn Mower 4.0 is perhaps the best device to put your money in, if your budget has no rope. The device is easy to work around, providing seamless operation with its delicate nature.
The Lawn Mower 4.0 feels significantly thinner than MANSPOT’s trimmer. To have the upper hand, it not only offers a better blade system, but it also offers extras with the help of the flashlight and travel lock.
Battery life and charging system
While MANSPOT offers the same Li-Ion battery as the Lawn Mower 3.0 and 4.0, providing a runtime of 90 minutes, the device feels more like a liability due to the way in which it recovers. The box only comes with a cable, lacking an adaptor for restoring the battery life in a short span of time.
The Lawn Mower 3.0 feels like an upgrade at that moment, providing a charger and a cable for rejuvenating an equally compelling Li-Ion battery. Alongside it is a charging station, which, while presentable, falls short of meeting the standards of prominent trimmers.
Taking the crown yet again is the Lawn Mower 4.0, with more equipment for its Li-Ion battery.
Alongside providing a charging cable and adapter, the Lawn Mower 4.0 walks the extra mile with a wireless charging station, which restores battery health in just an hour. This may not top the travel lock feature, but is equally compelling in my eyes when travelling overseas.
Wet and Dry Trimmer
In addition to having common ground when it comes to endurance, MANSPOT reunites with MANSCAPED once again when wet shaving is in the mix.
With waterproof housing that is IPX7 certified, this trimmer is as equally compelling as the Lawn Mower 3.0 and 4.0, offering a survival time of 30 minutes underwater.
Therefore, if you’re hoping to partake in wet shaving on a daily basis, be sure to save some of your finances with MANSPOT’s body trimmer!
Attachments and extras
When it comes to attachments, I personally am fond of the comb guards belonging to MANSPOT, which fit perfectly with the shaving head of the device. To secure a stable hold, MANSPOT’s trimmer contains two openings underneath the blade, which is later occupied by the selected attachment.
The Lawn Mower 3.0 has a slight edge over the former, making up for the comb guards it lacks with a charging station and adapter. The charging station, while deprived of quality, reduces the estimated time for the device to reach a full battery life, which is something I’d always vouch for.
The Lawn Mower 4.0 once again remains at the top of the table, providing effective comb attachments in addition to a charging adaptor and cable. To complement the travel lock feature is the brand new charging dock, which honestly works wonders on flights with its cordless operation.
Recap: Pros and Cons of Manspot Trimmer
With the help of all that’s been covered, I hope you’re able to take note of all the positives MANSPOT offers, that too at the rate it charges.
Though revising the guide might be mandatory if you’d like a thorough recap on my experience and how it holds up against MANSCAPED, here’s a series of pros and cons regarding MANSPOT’s body trimmer that will work wonders if you’re low on time.

My Final Takeaway
Although I did have to work past a fair share of doubts when investing in MANSPOT’s body trimmer, I was met with joy and relief once I put the device to the test. What really made me hesitant in the first place was all that it offered for its price. However, things changed as soon as I unboxed the packaging.
I love how well the attachments wrap themselves around the blade of the device, providing tons of security when put to use.
The blade themselves deserve their own flowers, conditioned with an anti-nick guard that prevents damaged and sensitive skin from injuries and scratches. It feels quite soft and comfortable on my eczema-prone skin, generating smooth operation due to its powerful motor.
Don’t worry about sound, as the device maintains minimal volume, even when used for prolonged periods. Don’t know whether your battery’s about to give-in? Have a glimpse at the battery status indicator, where the LED at the bottom represents a low charge, while the upper half implies a full battery life.
The device not only feels extremely light, but it’s also a perfect fit in my palm, ensuring a great shaving session. If you struggle with time management, make full use of its waterproof housing, which has accompanied me in the shower multiple times before a night out. Do set a time limit, though, as the device can only absorb water for 30 minutes at most.
Overall, I’m delighted with the time I spent with MANSPOT’s body trimmer. For it’s budget, I believe that it offers not just the essentials for body grooming, but also the necessities for excellent results.
It may lack the additives of a travel lock feature, and a charging station that preserves its lifespan for quite some time like the Lawn Mower 4.0.
However, taking into account how much it costs, it’s definitely a MUST-HAVE in my book. Therefore, if you’d like to obtain more for less when taking care of your skin and body, be sure to give MANSPOT’s body trimmer the chance it deserves.
