Remington Touch Control Beard and Stubble Trimmer

Remember that "guy moment" on "Seinfeld" when George Costanza wanted to combine his two favorite things - sex and food? So he hid a pastrami sandwich next to the bed and tried to sneak bites without his girlfriend noticing? The Remington Touch Control Beard and Stubble Trimmer is a bit like that - it combines two guy things - shaving and gadgets.

This device not only does a great job trimming your beard, moustache, stubble, etc., with its titanium, self-sharpening blades, it has an LED readout and push button controls that let you select from up to 175 trimming lengths - from 0.4mm to 18mm. And if that's not enough, there are three speeds. We recommend the fastest.

The Remington device plugs into the wall and takes about 90 minutes to charge. Then it's good for about 40 minutes of trimming. So, just pick the Hollywood celebrity three-day beard look that you want, and set your trimmer accordingly.
