This Philips Norelco QS6160 trimmer is a pretty well rounded unit. It features dual ends to give you personalized grooming for your facial hair. The foil shaving edge will let you easily shave, while the trimming edge to let you get the length you want.
A great feature on this unit is that it’s maintenance free. It’s also water resistant and super easy to clean, not to mention the 2 year warranty. If something were to happen, you’re not stuck with it.
The Written Review
This QS6160 model has a nice option of a reversible trimmer, having a larger trimmer on end, and a medium trimmer on the other side. You’ll be able to get the lines you want, where you want them. It comes with 2 comb guards, with the option of 12 lengths to choose from on the unit itself.
At the other end of the handle, you have the foil shaver that it said to be pretty good for finer/ less dense facial hair. Some men with a very thick, noticeable 5 o’clock shadow said they had a few issues getting a good shave. It’s important to know the capabilities of a shaver in relation to the type of hair you have on your face so that you don’t end up with something under powered. If you have a bit thicker hair, just make sure you have a manual razor nearby just in case. Don’t let this send you away though! It’s still a great machine with high power.
This unit is pretty highly spoken of, currently having a 4.1/5 star rating on Amazon. This is an above average rating for trimmers of this style (dual ended), and definitely says something about it.
The battery life is also above average, giving you 50 minutes of cordless use after a short 1 hour charge. You can also have the convenience of using it while it’s plugged in if you don’t have a chance to charge it up before needing it. This makes it a great option to bring traveling.

We’d certainly recommend this trimmer to guys who have a fuller beard and require less shaving (not much more than a neck clean up), and anyone with finer facial hair as opposed to a dense, dark 5 o’clock shadow needing to be maintained daily.
