REVIEW | Phillips 9000 Beard Trimmer | Grooming

Philips 9000 Laser Beard Trimmer Review and In Action trim. Do I recommend? Is it a gimmick?

I’ve provided a commentary on what I thought of this beard trimmer and whether the laser precision is worth it.

As one of the more expensive and “glam” beard trimmers on the market and something not easily returned, it’s useful to be as informed as possible whether you’re buying this for yourself or a present for Christmas, a Birthday, Father’s Day or any other gift for men.

Hope it helps.

P.s. By request, this is the Remington I do recommend. The MB320C Barba Beard. It’s well built and straight forward. Very popular and incredible value for money.

UE BOOM shake shake shake the room – the UE Boom Party @ Velorution

Music has always been quite major to me. So when portable speakers became a possibility it was an exciting time. After some recent work with Pinterest, the team at Brands4Life invited us to a collab between Logitech Ultimate Ears and Velorution in London to show off the UE Boom. Their top spec portable wireless speaker…

My Macbook Evolution

When Apple first released their Intel powered Macbooks in 2006 I was lucky enough to have a pretty awesome brother who bought me one for getting into a good uni. They came in White or Black. The black one was £100 more expensive for no reason at all other than the colour and they came…

Introduction to Pinterest – First boards

Not gonna lie – of all the platforms to lose your life to – I lose most of mine on this one. If the other half didn’t do the same we might have had to go to counselling by now but as it turns Pinterest is just a happy third wheel in our relationship. You can…

#BEDM : Gadgets

Gadgets are BIG! Like major. Everyone must have gadgets. Bond has gadgets. Inspector Gadget has a few and I’ve just realised gadget is one of those words that if you say enough times, will stop making sense. I have a lot of these little things from my Apple iPhone and the little Griffin plugin thing…

House of Marley Redemption Song Earphones

I have a hard time with buying earphones. My favourite of all time were the Sennheiser CX300 Precision from 2006. The sound was awesome, they were lightweight, waterproof-ish and cost £27 from Amazon. My mates bought some too. The only issue with them is that they weren’t very durable and only lasted a year or…
