Consumers who are considering buying the Philips Norelco BG2028/42 Bodygroom 3100 should be aware that this groomer is designed more for trimming body hair than for giving you a close bare skin shave.
While some users do get a fairly close shave using this groomer, they often achieve it by shaving against the grain of the hair, and going over the same area more than once.
