Bombay Shaving Company (BSC) has been a popular brand in the grooming segment with products across men’s and women’s grooming categories. This beard trimmer and hair clipper is marketed as a two-in-one solution in hair and beard grooming.
Though BSC categorises this product as a trimmer and hair clipper, the design is clearly that of a hair clipper, more than a beard trimmer. Though the wide hair clipping head is detachable, the package does not include a narrow head required for beard and moustache trimming and shaping. The clipper comes with four comb attachments—3mm, 6mm, 9mm and 12mm, but these are a little difficult to attach and detach, making us doubt the longevity of these attachments. While most companies provide a bottle of lubricating oil with their trimmers, this package contains only an empty bottle.
The clipper is charged with the help of a charging base with a USB input. The device does not have a locking mechanism, making it not suitable as a travel trimmer. BSC claims 1.5 hours of battery life and charging time of two hours for the 600mAh battery. Unfortunately, there is no display or battery indicator. Going by features, this product is not certainly made for personal use and would better suit salons where the primary function is hair clipping. However, the USB power input and comparatively slow charging may not be something that would interest salons. The device is made in China and the head carries an IPX6 water resistance rating.
