Easy to carry pouch

Cons of the product

It’s not an all-in-one solution for your grooming needs. While it does a great job at beard trimming, it does not function that well for other trimming purposes such as body scaping.

Another minor drawback of this product is that it seems to make the shavings fly all over the place, causing some clean up once the shaving is done.
