    I got this nose hair trimmer for only $9.99. It works very well! It does not hurt at all. In fact you barely feel anything. It works very quickly, and eliminates hairs down to the skin on contact. It works off of one AA battery which should last years. It comes apart quickly for cleaning, and is only 3 parts. And it's waterproof! I just rinse it under a faucet. It captures most of the hair, so the little shavings don't go up your nose for the most part. You can also run it along your ear for the little fuzz. If you hold up a tight comb to your eyebrows, you can also use this against the comb to trim those. The only drawback, which might just be my unit, is that when you open the battery compartment there is a disburbingly powerful fish smell! I assume (and hope) it's an oil they use to keep it smooth. You only smell it when it's open. It's very cheap and easy to use and clean. Highly recommended.

    This is the first time I've used a trimmer and I love it. Wasn't sure what to expect, whether it would hurt or if I would be sneezing all day. None of that happened. The trimmer is: - very easy to set up - requires a AA battery (not included) - washable - operates at an acceptable noise level (low humming sound) - gets rid of hair with no pull or tuck feeling I used this for my nose and ears and it worked great. The rounded cap on top has a blade on the inside, the blade is placed slightly lower than the tip of the cap. This helps avoid any skin tucks, making it completely safe to use. There is a small opening in the top cap that can be exposed by rotating the head of the trimmer. The opening here is what makes the trimmer washable, it lets water in to wash the blade and also drains it out.

    I had an old Panasonic trimmer with the same kind of cutting head I loved.After a long time ,10 years maybe,the motor went up.So I decided on giving this model a try.It works well ,just need to clean it out as soon as you hear a different noise from the motor.This is no different than saying you need to clean a vacuum clearer in order to work better.As for a battery instead of rechargeable ,the battery option is much better because I have a rechargeable Panasonic hair trimmer and need to charge it all the time.This cleaner cuts nicely and gets the job done ,worth buying as a single use item.

    Great Battery Operated Trimmer

    I purchased this trimmer as my other one has worn out from age and the battery, That one was a rechargeable unit that was over 10 years old. This new trimmer is powered by a single AA battery which is not rechargeable but operates fairly well. The main difference is the power of the newer model is less because of lower voltage. I like the easy cleaning method of this Panasonic trimmer allowing you to rinse out and air dry by just twisting the top off. It's waterproof and a lot quieter and still will cut fine/coarse hair without a problem. This is a nice item for travel since no power cords or adapters are required.

    Good, But It Will Break

    These little gadgets are the best trimmers on the market, but consider yours disposable. It might last three months or over a year, but the motor or electrical connections will fail, usually evidenced by the motor slowing, and slowing as if the battery was failing, but it won't be the batteriy. When they work, they're great, effective and easy to clean. They have a warranty, but I've never tried to return one. I've had four-the longest lasting was almost a year and a half, the shortest three months. So, great performance while it works, but a throwaway.

    No hair pulling so far... but the battery usage?

    I purchased this for my husband after looking at reviews on here. His first experience using it was dry; he had no hair pulling from the trimmer. It does say it's a wet or dry trimmer so hopefully using it wet won't make a difference. He did say it seemed to use quite a bit of battery life to operate but it hasn't been very long since he started using it. We think part of that may have been the cheapo batteries we used to test it out. Time will tell, but so far so good! One last thing: it stands up on its own, which I think I read from a different review it would but I still didn't expect it to... so yay for that. :)

    While I usually prefer trimmers with multiple heads for different uses instead of having multiple trimmers, since we already had one large and two small standard grooming trimmers it didn't make sense to buy a multi-function one this time. I chose this one in-store because it happened to be on sale and offered the ability to rinse the head without taking it apart - a feature I've never had before. The motor is extremely quiet, trims well without pulling and is easy to clean (it comes with a brush as well). Would definitely buy again.

    I originally purchased another major brand of trimmer that had the long narrow trimmer piece as I had heard the trimmers like on this Panasonic pulled. While the other one is nice for eyebrows and didn't pull at all, it really didn't do a good job of getting all the ear hair. So after doing a lot of research online, I figured I'd try this Panasonic trimmer. Boy am I glad I did. It does a great job taking care of ear hair without any pulling!! Its easy to clean and easy to operate. I highly recommend this. The low price is just a bonus!

    I bought the ER-GN30 after my previous Panasonic bit the dust after many years of great service. The ER-GN30 does a good job as for trimming nose hairs (only thing I use it for). It doesn't trim quite as close as the old model Panasonic I had did, but as stated it does do a good job. Personally I prefer the round head trimmer over the flat / straight style as some of them will pull the hair pretty hard before cutting it. I have heard that even some of the round head ones will do the same, but I can say neither one of the Panasonics I have had do.

    This trimmer replaced a previous Panasonic nose/ear trimmer that I accidentally dropped on tile floor, trimmer end first unfortunately. Purchased this unit because my previous Panasonic trimmer lasted for over 10 years and was still working well, had I not dropped it. These trimmers are well designed and work a long time on the battery. This unit is even water proof in the cutting area and can be easily 'flushed-out'. I have owned this trimmer now for a couple of months and it works great, does the job, and is easy to use.

    This trimmer works great. In the past, I always used an all-in-one trimmer solution with various attachments that you could change out--one of the units that has the trimmer of different lengths for your beard, mustache, etc. I was always unhappy with the nose/ear trimmer attachment, but assumed it was just how they worked. I recently found this item and based on all the 5-star reviews, I figured I'd give it a shot. Well, the reviews are correct; this does exactly what it should and does it well, with no painful pulling.

    This trimmer does what it promises to do fairly well. It is well-designed and as far as I have experienced, it works equally well for wet or dry trimming, but it doesn't trim very close and it has left several partially severed hairs clinging to their roots. This is most likely user error, but I do take time and care to be as precise as possible so who knows. On a more positive note, the hypoallergenic blades and smooth protector make this a very comfortable trimmer to use.

    I bought this when it was a Deal of the Day item. It was a replacement for a 30 year old Wahl nose hair trimmer. It's a little bit bigger than the Wahl trimmer but is well designed to fit your hand. It does a great job in trimming nose, ear and eyebrow hair. One AA battery lasts a really long time. Easy clean blades under running water.

    I wasn't actually looking for this exact item. But, it was on sale for $9.00, so I couldn't pass it up. It works exactly as advertised. I had an important meeting with work, and people have joked about the afro in my nostrils. And I had noticed the hair in and on my ears. So I decided to take some action. I went to Best Buys to try and find some kind of trimmer. It worked great in my nose. Someone else handled the hair in my ear.

    Best Nose Hair Trimmer

    My old nose hair trimmer died and I purchased this one to replace it. This is by far the best one I have ever owned and I would purchase it again. It quickly and easily trims the hair straight down to the skin with no pain or stubble and it is very easy to clean. My old trimmer had a rechargeable battery that had always lost its charge when I went to use it once every 2 months or so. This Panasonic trimmer takes regular batteries which is very convenient.

    At our age hair grows out of every place you never expected, except on top of your head! This trimmer does a neat, painless job of removing nasal, ear and eyebrow hair. Cuts quite close and no pulling. Cleaning is a cinch. Twist the top, place the end in hot water while it is running and it pumps water and hair pieces out of the blade area. Removal the top cap, tissue dry the pieces, reassemble. Ready for the next grooming!

    I purchased this on a whim because it was on special. I have needed one for a while but really this isn't something we think about. I mean, honestly I don't spend that much time looking at my nose! So when it popped up I decided to grab it. I was a little apprehensive at first I mean come on this thing is supposed to cut the hair out of my nose I didn't want it up there. It was surprisingly pleasant and no pain was involved. It tickled a wee bit.

    Product quality isn't great. I've bought two of these already after the first one died after a year. Second one died after a year and now, I'm a decision point to buy another one or go with something that will last longer than a year. I don't use water to clean it so that shouldn't be an issue with why it dies. When it was brand new, it worked great.

    This trimmer does it's job properly. Compared to the Wahl trimmer I used before, this one is more powerful and cleans easier. The inexpensive Wahl trimmer brushes corroded mildly to the point where I had to apply 5 volts to the battery terminals (it used one AA alkaline battery) to spin the motor; then it would work on the battery for a little while. In the couple of months I have use the Panasonic trimmer it has worked flawlessly.

    I was so pleased to find this. I have tried these new trimmers that don't do anything....oh yeah, they don't pull, cause they don't cut at all. I had a Panasonic for at least 10 years that finally died. I tried Wahl, it falls apart, Norelco , that doesn't cut at all , and one other. This basic design actually works.......I thought they had discontinued this old style, hands down better than these new designs.
