Grooming – an industry that’s constantly witnessing improvements and innovations. Grooming products are a must for any man of the modern world. In order to keep a pleasant appearance, you must purchase a wide array of products that are meant to improve your look and, let’s face it, that doesn’t bother most of us. Grooming can be fun and it will most certainly improve your self esteem and even comfort levels. As previously stated, there are a lot of grooming products that men use on different parts of their bodies. As we progress in age, hair starts popping up all over the place.
Nose hairs are particularly annoying, as they attract more dust and have a big negative impact on your appearance and confidence. It’s important that you use proper tools to get rid of them, to avoid injuries or dryness, which can really mess with your comfort. Using sharp, small scissors or clippers can really damage your tissue, resulting in bleeding and even infections. Luckily for us, nose hair trimmers have been designed in such manner that you won’t be cutting too deep, avoiding stupid grooming-related injuries while achieving optimal results.
Throughout this product round up, we’re going to take a closer look at the best nose hair clippers on the market. We’ll briefly explain each product’s features and offer our biased opinion regarding their value and utility.
Our Top Picks For Best Nose Hair Trimmers
1. Panasonic ER-GN30-K
A classic take on the nose hair cutter design, the Panasonic ER-GN30-K is featured on our list due to its inexpensive price tag and the utility it brings with its design. Powered by a AA battery, this clipper isn’t environmentally-friendly, as it’s non-rechargeable, but on the plus side, you can use it anywhere without bringing a charger and get up to 90 minutes of trimming on just one charge (around 30-40 uses). Actually, this is a hair detail trimmer, so you can use it in your nose, on your ears, beard, eyebrows and mustache to get a more refined look. It has dual-edge curved, hypoallergenic blades, that allow you to reach every corner, nook and cranny, so that you get a full grooming experience. The blades are also made using stainless steel, so getting them wet won’t be an issue. The rotating blades will draw in wetness, so that hairs won’t stick to the tissue, allowing you to cut each and every one of them in a manner of seconds. Because of its design, the blades won’t go skin-deep when trimming, so that you will have plenty length left for natural nose filtering. It’s watertight, so you can use it on the go, in the bathroom sink and even while in the shower, which is very convenient. It comes with a protective nose trimmer cap, to keep it neat and clean when it’s not being used, and a brush, to clean it (ideally) after every use.
If you decide to go with the Panasonic ER-GN30-K Nose Ear & Hair Trimmer, make sure that, while cleaning different parts of your face, you don’t apply too much pressure, as the blades are spring-controlled and, if the spring gets damaged, it won’t operate at full capacity.

2. ToiletTree Products Professional
While manufacturers such as Gillette and Panasonic are well-known in the industry, the next product we’re going to discuss is a ToiletTree waterproof hair trimmer. This doesn’t mean that it doesn’t measure up to the quality of other brand products on the market, quite the opposite. First off, we need to mention that this comes with a lifetime replacement guarantee and from a company with great customer support services. At a first glance, the steel-covered body gives it a nice, polished, premium feel. The blade system, placed on the top, is complemented by a white LED light that allows you to detect and remove any unwanted, lingering hairs. The blades are built in such a way that it cuts hairs both vertically and horizontally, and it’s got a curved shape, so you’ll be reaching every corner due to their easy nose hair removal design. It still uses AA batteries, which is either a plus or a minus, depending on how you look at it. The stainless steel blade system is easy to clean – just rinse it with water and you’re good to go. In addition to using it on your nose and ears, it’s perfect for any kind of adjustments, so feel free to shape your beard and eyebrows. Another great thing about the stainless steel and plastic combination is that you can use it both in dry and wet environments, making it a great nose shaver.
As previously stated, the lifetime replacement guarantee will cover any faulty products and the customer care service is, reportedly, very, very responsive. Very affordable and designed using quality materials, the ToiletTree Products Professional Water Resistant Heavy Duty Steel Nose Trimmer is sure to make any man happy.

3. Philips Norelco Nose Trimmer 3000
Philips is a well-known name in the grooming industry (among other industries), so it’s no surprise that they’ve made our list. The Norelco Nose trimmer 3000 is a great choice for someone who’s looking for a bit more bang for their buck, as it comes with different heads and accessories that will bring more quality to your grooming routine. For starters, it’s similar to the previously featured products, as it still uses a AA battery for power (Lithium for maximum power). This waterproof hair trimmer comes with two interchangeable heads, one for nose trimming and the other is equipped with eyebrow guards, which will make it easy for you to achieve equal results for both of your eyebrows in the least amount of time. The second one is actually a skin precision trimmer, so you can use it as the others, to adjust the shape of your beard, mustache and eyebrows. Moving back to the nose shaver element of the Philips Norelco Nose Trimmer 3000, the blades are designed in such a way that they won’t be pulling hairs, avoiding annoying leaky eyes and pinching sensations. Because the body is watertight, you can easily clean it under the sink or in the shower, right after using it. Philips included a battery in their package – finally, someone who’s actually being considerate.
That being said, don’t pick this over other products if you’re not going to use the different accessories, as the full plastic build and inferior really drop the value, as it’s in the same price range as our previous features.

4. Hecare Star 3 In 1
Let’s take a look at a more exciting product. The people at Hecare have managed to manufacture a very well-built nose and facial hair trimmer that also comes at a reasonable price. Although the price tag is a bit higher than what we’ve seen so far, you can tell this little guy is different just by looking at it. First off, it comes with a support for the trimmer and its two heads, which will fit nicely on your bathroom shelf. The bundle also includes two additional interchangeable heads, one for shaving eyebrows and the other for shaving and adjusting your beard. The Hecare hair detail trimmer has a stainless steel body, giving it a nice, premium look and extra durability. The AA battery that powers it will give it enough power to trim your nose hairs without pulling and pinching. The trimmer also has an LED light that will assist you in tracking down rogue hairs. All of the heads are washable and usable under the shower on in the dry with no issues at all. In addition to the great design, we think that the added utility and higher quality build makes this trimmer stand out so far, as the value it brings is, undoubtedly, much higher.
If you aren’t sold yet, the manufacturers offer a one-year warranty, which should banish any doubts regarding the quality of the Hecare Nose trimmer.

5. Braun Ear and Nose Hair Trimmer
Braun is a company that manufactures only men’s grooming products, so their the quality of their products is backed by their experience in the industry. The Braun Ear and Nose Hair Trimmer is meant for men that know exactly what they want – simple and effective trimmer without any additional accessories. Another non rechargeable nose hair trimmer, the Braun trimmer is also powered by AA batteries, and the manufacturers have been kind enough to include a Duracell AA battery in the package which will give you up to 120 minutes of uninterrupted trimming. The sturdy plastic will make it hard for you to damage it. The only thing that’s missing is a brush, which is kind of annoying, as a brush is ideal for cleaning tiny hairs that constantly get stuck in the blades. Other than that, it falls into the standard nasal hair trimmers category – stainless steel blades, designed to be curved to reach every part of your nose, watertight build so that you can use it in the shower and a very compact design that makes it easy to fit in your suitcase or backpack in case you plan on travelling.
While this device will remove nose hair with no problem, the fact that it’s in a similar price ranged with our previously-featured nose hair trimmers make it a bit unappealing, since it lacks extra features.

6. Creation Springs Electra
Sometimes, while searching for the right product, we stumble on a device that has it all (well, almost). This is the case with the Creation Springs Electra-Trim nose and ear hair trimmer. Creation Springs manufacture various bathroom products, such as tweezers, tooth brushers, and trimmers, so they know a thing or two about design and features. Moving on to the actual trimmer, this little guy packs quite a bit of value and it’s currently the cheapest product on the list. The multipurpose head, which comes with curved, stainless steel blades, allows users to easily manipulate the nose hair cutter and reach even the toughest angles. If you think that, by chance, you didn’t cut all of the longer hairs in your nasal cavity, then you’ll be glad to know that the Creation Springs trimmer comes with a powerful LED light, making it easy to hit every spot. Additionally, to make things even easier, the Electra-trim nose and ear hair trimmer has a three-vent vacuuming system, which will remove any cut hairs that are obstructing your vision. The multipurpose head is also useful for adjusting facial hair, although there are better trimmers for that. Powered by a double A battery, you’ll have plenty of power to work with for months to come. The full design that includes a multi purpose head, LED light and vacuuming system makes for an easy nose hair removal experience at a very low price – very impressive.

7. Bestope Nose & Ear Hair Trimmer
It’s becoming clear to all of us that there isn’t much difference between different hair trimmers, so what is it that makes some of them better than others? Well, build quality. This is where the Chinese manufacturer BESTOPE comes in with their take on the classic nose hair trimmer. This particular trimmer has a very sturdy, thick plastic body, with a powdered finish, making it very easy to grip and less likely to drop.

The body is waterproof, so you can use it in a number of ways and it makes it very easy to clean – just rinse under a running tap and use the brush included to remove any remaining hairs from the blades. The body is also very slim so it’s easy to fit in any man’s grooming kit. Although it’s great for using in your nose and on your ears, avoid using it to retouche your beard and eyebrows, as it doesn’t come with accessories for that.

8. Suprent Nose & Ear Hair Trimmer
If you’ve had bad experiences with previously-owned nose hair trimmers, the SUPRENT Nose & Ear Hair Trimmer is probably one of the best nose hair clippers for you. The reason we’ve said that is the fact that it is equipped with a very powerful motor. The 6500 RPM mute motor compliments the blades and offers one of the best trimming experiences on the market. The noise won’t hit 50 DB, which is very impressive and will provide a very discreet hair removal, in case you’re on the go. While the body is made out of fairly-basic plastic, it still provides a lot of toughness for a device this small. Stainless steel blades are standard, so this trimmer comes equipped with the same quality blades we’ve seen so far. The LED light will allow you to adjust your movements so that you won’t be cutting too deep, as the light becomes more intense if you put more pressure on the tissue. This particular device comes with a travel bag – a very nice touch. Why not save some money if you’re the type that moves around a lot?
Use it in the shower or in the office bathroom, it’s waterproof and easy to clean – you won’t be leaving any mess behind.

9. Panasonic ER430K
Panasonic have brought their A-game when crafting this product. The ER430K ear and nose trimmer is a more premium option, for guys that don’t pull any stops when it comes to grooming. Reasonably priced and feature-packed, this featured product is one the best nose hair clippers the market has to offer. What’s most surprising is that this product falls under the same price range as what we’ve featured so far, but it offers a bit more bang for your buck. The blades – they’re arced, made out of stainless-steel, hypoallergenic and sharp, making it easy to remove nose hair comfortably and safely, avoiding nosebleeds and wet eyes. It’s wet/dry, so the shower is an ideal place for carrying out grooming activities using this bad boy. Well, that’s not true, because this is actually designed to vacuum all of your trimmed hairs, keeping it neat, clean and simple. The hairs are then stored into a “chamber”, which you can easily remove and empty. Powered by AA batteries, or rather battery (ideally Polaroid), the motor gets enough juice for a very smooth and safe experience.
For spot-on grooming, Panasonic has included a cleaning brush and a travel bag, so you’re ready to trim on the road. Honestly – great product, great value – one of the best nasal hair trimmers out there.

10. Sportsman 3 In 1
Okay, we’re about to wrap our round up, but we need to feature one last product. By now, we assume you’re tired of AA-battery powered trimmers, so you’ll probably be pleasantly surprised to find out that this is a rechargeable nose hair trimmer. The battery can be charged in three hours and a single charge lasts for months. If you have strong feelings regarding the environment, this would be the most friendly pick on the list. That being said, the Sportsman 3 in 1 isn’t even waterproof. That’s disappointing, to say the least. The only waterproof part is the head, which you can remove and clean, to prevent bacteria from growing. The 360 rotary cutting system is pretty standard, but it works damn fine with the 6500 RPM motor. Additionally, you’ll be getting two interchangeable heads, great for trimming and adjusting your beard, eyebrows, mustache and so on.
Honestly, this is a little weird, because, compared to the other devices, this one has a rechargeable battery, but it isn’t waterproof, so I guess it kind of evens out.

Because for most of you nose hair trimming is probably a new thing that you have to put up with, we’ve decided to provide a small buying guide and some instructions about how you should proceed. While you might think it’s all intuitive, try to go through it as we’ll be revealing some neat tips and tricks.
For starters, let’s focus on what you should know before making an informed purchase. The fact that there are so many similar products on the market is very confusing, so quality will be the main factor that separates them.
Blade System – When shopping for a nose hair trimmer, make sure you pick something that’s got a good blade system – usually, manufacturers will mention “double-edged” on the packaging. Double-edged blades are really great for trimming hairs without pulling, so in order to avoid pain and discomfort, go for one of those.
LED’s – Secondly, LED lights are very useful in avoiding harming yourself. While you put more pressure on your tissue, the LED light will intensify, so you’ll know when you’re overdoing it and might damage your skin. That’s also useful for noticing hairs that you’ve overlooked.
Vacuum System – An integrated vacuuming system can also be very useful at cleaning your nostrils, so that you don’t get any of the discomfort associated with left-over hairs. Additionally, the vacuuming system will also help you keep a clean and tidy bathroom, which you’ll appreciate.
Batteries – Either go for rechargeable or batteries – this one’s up to you. Batteries have the advantage of being widely-available, so you won’t be having any issues if you run out of power while you’re on a trip. USB charging requires an active USB port, and you might not have that on-hand when going for a light trip.
Accessories – Additional accessories are also nice. If you’re going to travel a lot, some companies bundle a traveling case to fit the trimmer and its accessories. If you don’t really enjoy going to beauty salons and plan or growing a beard, getting a trimmer that comes with additional interchangeable heads will be very useful. After you use your scissors or trimmer to cut down excess hair, you can use a detailed hair trimmer accessory to give a nice shape to your beard, shave your sideburns and trim down your bushy brows. Nose trimmers are also great for shaving ear hairs.
Waterproof – Lastly, waterproof. Arguably the most important feature to have in a nose hair trimmer. Try to focus on models that allow you to trim in the shower, as it’s cleaner and won’t have to lift a finger. In addition to that, you know that all of the parts are tightly fit, so the body of the trimmer is a bit tougher. The blades can be easily-cleaned under a running tap, so bacteria won’t accumulate in the tip, which could’ve lead to an infection.
Price – Price isn’t really an issue, as most of them are surprisingly tight when it comes to that. Just make sure you pick one that has all or most of the above-mentioned features in order to have the best grooming experience.
How To Remove Hair From Nose
While you might be inclined to use a tool that you already have lying around the house, we recommend that you avoid cutting or plucking your nose hair. You see, nose hairs act as natural filters. If you cut too much of it or pluck it all away, your nostrils will get drier, as dust and other micro-particles can find their way in, causing breakage of the skin and other issues.
To remove the hair from your nose, just turn on the trimmer and carefully move it around. Don’t put too much pressure. The blades are specially designed not to cut too much of your hair, so you’ll still have the natural filter that’s protecting your tissue. If you have an LED on your trimmer, this will further help you with trimming your hair.
The trimmed hairs will naturally fall out of your nose, because of the rotary motion of the device, so that isn’t really a problem. Additionally, vacuums will gather and store everything that falls off.
How To Clean Nose A Hair Trimmer
Cleaning a nose hair trimmer is very easy. What you have to do is remove the detachable head. If yours came equipped with a cleaning brush, this is the time to use it. Just take the brush and stroke along the blades, and get all of the hairs out. After that, place the brush aside and turn on the water.
Place the nose hair trimming head under the running water. First, place it in a perpendicular position, so that the water hits the blades. After you rinse it a bit, you can let the water fall directly in the center of the blade system, to get out any remaining hairs and to make sure that bacteria won’t accumulate. Dry the lid before putting the cap back on, to avoid bad smells and mold.
Grooming is important and it adds health benefits, not just aesthetic ones. That being said, make sure you use proper trimmers to shorten your nose hairs, as you can really damage the tissue and it’s a literal nightmare to live with a dry nose. Make sure you follow our general guidelines for shopping and using nose hair trimmers and you’re going to be fine. All of the products featured in our review section have been well-received by users and offer the perfect amount of value and utility.
