Phones and tablets are not the only devices that are getting smarter, faster, and more advanced these days. According to a new study, a Men’s Grooming Consumer Report conducted by The NPD Group, Inc., a leading market research company, over 9 in 10 men (ages 18+) are using some sort of grooming product today. With new products on the market, it can easily get overwhelming on which products to buy, and which are the best. Similar to buying a new phone, car, or TV, you have to do your research. My best bet…Amazon user reviews. With thousands of reviews on every product, the reviews can be your guide to choosing the proper “manscaper” or trimmer. Check out my top 5 tech man-grooming products from face, hair, beard, teeth, and body to make sure you are looking silky smooth. Enjoy!

Although the new iStubble trimmer from Conair may sound like an Apple product, this techno trimmer is built just like a product coming from Cupertino. The GMT900 iStubble Trimmer features an electronic motorized length control system which is so cool. You can digitally dial in the length setting via the LCD and watch the head move into position like a Droid from Star Wars. With 15 settings, ergonomic design, and dual battery system, the iStubble for me is the world best trimmer. iStubble $40
