Admit it the actual act of manscaping is no fun but hey – it’s necessary. Who does not like crisp and itch-free pubes and clean underarms?
For decades, traditional razors whether straight or double-edged had been the preferred choice because they provided a close shave. However, they had their own share of problems. If you have been there, you would know how easy it is to cut yourself with them.
So, we want a clean area but not at the cost of nicks and cuts. Fortunately, with the advancement in technology, we are getting closer to shaving tools that would provide as close a shave as a razor. Moreover, hopefully, we would not need a razor-sharp focus to get out unharmed.
To help you out in this, we have just the right product which would make this process a lot easier and convenient for you. This Lawn Mower 2.0 by Manscaped is the future of male grooming and just the right product for you.
There has been a lot of hype around it but does it justify the reputation or it is thriving on paid promotions, we live in such an era you know. We have put it to extensive tests and would like to share results for you to make your final decision on whether it is worth a buy.

Manscaped Lawn Mower 2.0 Review – Manscaping Made Fun
As its name indicates, it is an upgraded version of “Lawn Mower” which had its share of success. To replace a model with some degree of success is always a difficult task but I would like to say that Manscaped has managed well. Let’s find out what they have to offer in this particular trimmer.
SkinSafe Blades: Mower 2.0 features a specially designed cutting system that has small trimming blades that cut the hair without pulling or tugging. In addition, these blades are sharp enough to cut the hairs in one go, so you don’t have to repeat the strokes.
Powerful Motor: Mower 2.0 features a more powerful motor than its predecessor with a power of 6000 RPM as opposed to 4000 RPM previously. The idea of introducing a powerful motor is to make the process faster and convenient for the users.
Non-Slip Surface: You surely do not want to drop the trimmer while using it on a sensitive area like the groin. Luckily, Manscaped thought it through and used a rubberized grip for steady and safe handling.
Adjustable Comb Guides: Lawn Mower 2.0 comes with two adjustable comb guides that can be used to style the pubes if you are into them.
Water Resistance: Mower 2.0 is 100% waterproof which not only makes it easy to clean but also allows you to use it under a running shower. Those who have sensitive skins would be able to take maximum advantage of it.
USB Type Charging Cable: Charging of the Lawn Mower is as convenient as it gets because of its USB-type charging cable. You can plug it in your cell phone charger or even connect it with your laptop to charge it. Easy Peasy!
The bottom line is Lawn Mower checks all the right boxes when it comes to features but do these features really perform? In our forthcoming section we will examine them in detail but before that here is a quick summary of it.

Manscaped Lawn Mower 2.0 Review - Does It Deserve Its Reputation
Okay, so, it all looks good on paper, all these features sound good but do these all translate into a stellar performance? The criteria to judge the performance of a trimmer is how fast and how comfortably it cleans the bush.
For a trimmer to pass, it needs to cut the hair short without pulling or tugging them and should not take too much time as well. In order to assess the performance of Lawn Mower 2.0, I used it for almost two months, and below are the results I came to.
Construction and Design
Lawn Mower 2.0 undoubtedly has an attractive and elegant-looking design but from the angle I see it, there are some shortcomings. The overall length of the trimmer is too long which makes it a bit harder to move around.
Furthermore, the portion that is supposedly made to grip the trimmer is way down which makes the job even difficult. If you are used to trimmers or shavers with sleeker designs, it would take some time to get used to it.
It is not all bad though, the problem presents itself only to the people with slightly smaller hands like me. Albeit the trimmer is a bit wider, but it does not carry too much weight which makes the job easier. Perhaps, the problems I encountered were because of my small hands and my habit of using sleeker trimmers and shavers. The point is, despite all my problems I was able to manage it and it was not that hard in the end.
The thing that impressed me a lot about this trimmer was its ability to withstand abuse. During my struggle to hold it properly I dropped it like zillion times but surprisingly nothing happened to it. Perhaps, it is because of its polycarbonate housing which is a sturdy material and can absorb the impact.
The bottom line is for some people it would take time to get a proper hold on to this trimmer but most people would be able to grip it just fine. In addition, the trimmer will withstand a good degree of abuse whether it is intentional or accidental.
The problem I encountered with its wider design was compensated with performance and when I say compensated, I mean compensated well. At first, I tried it without using any guide comb and it surprised me with the results. It was as if I had used a shaver instead of a trimmer, the hairs were all gone and the skin was all glowing. Perhaps, it is because the teeth are tightened together that cut the hair close to the skin.
Furthermore, I didn’t experience a thing almost as if I had shaved using foam or gel. There was no pulling or tugging and as a whole, it was a pretty comfortable experience. Perhaps, this is why some people are calling it a hybrid that can trim but shave as well.
Another thing that left me impressed was its speed and power which ran through the bush like a sharp electric saw. There was hardly any area where I had to go more than once. In addition, the motor didn’t produce any irritating noise like most of the trimmers.
To sum it up, the Manscaped Lawn Mower 2.0 did a pretty fine job at trimming the hair close to the skin. The skin wasn’t damaged and it also didn’t take too long to get the job done.
Comfort and Convenience
The whole point of using a trimmer for manscaping is to remain unharmed from the wrath of blades. Luckily, Lawn Mower 2.0 is a trimmer that can provide you with such experience. For most people, it would get the job done without them needing to wet or soak their hairs. In case it doesn’t, you can always use it on wet hairs which would ensure better comfort.
The irritation after the process is practically non-existent, it surely was in my case. However, if you still have problems you can use guide combs to minimize the discomfort. It would not be as close to them, but it would be comfortable.
The water resistance of the trimmer makes it convenient to clean and remove debris from it. In case you use it in the shower most of the cleaning would be done automatically. If not, you can just put it under a running tap and let it do the cleaning.
Battery Life and Charging
Manscaped has not specified the type of battery they have used but it looks like a Li-ion battery. On a full charge, the battery provides a runtime of about 55 minutes, a little less than what the company claims. However, the good thing is till the 55th minute the power does not go down and the performance remains intact.
The use of a USB charging cable is an innovative idea but the absence of adapters is kind of a bummer. However, almost everybody has a USB power outlet these days so it would not be an issue.
The more practical problem is the time it takes to get fully charged which is almost about 5 hours. It means you would have to plug it in a night before you want to clean your bush. It can be an inconvenience but for the performance it provides, you would tolerate it.
The blades of this trimmer need replacement after every three months which is a decent time. You can subscribe to the company’s service that will deliver you the blades every three months. The issue of the blades is sorted but unfortunately, it is not the same as its other parts.
The company hasn’t specified the type of battery it uses which makes it harder to find a replacement. In case your battery runs out of health you would have to take it to your nearest store and ask the help of some professional to replace it. However, you would not need it anytime soon and by the time you will, it would have lived its value. Thus, no issues there as well.

Manscaped Lawn Mower 2.0 Vs 3.0 - What Are The Differences?
Lawn Mower 3.0 being the latest version has a decent number of advantages over 2.0. For starters, the motor in 3.0 is more powerful at 7000rpm than 6000rpm of Lawn Mower 2.0. In addition, the shortcoming in the design that was in the 2.0 has been overcome by making the holding area nearer to the head.
Lawn Mower 3.0 has higher runtime as well which is 90 minutes compared to 60 minutes of 2.0. Furthermore, it comes with a docking station which is a decent addition and makes it both more attractive and convenient than its predecessor.
However, all these additional features come at a higher price which is understandable. Therefore, if you have spare money then it would be sane to go with 3.0 instead of Lawn Mower 2.0.

Manscaped Lawn Mower 2.0 Vs Brio Beardscape - Which One Is Better?
Brio Beardscape is a multi-purpose trimmer while the LLawn Mower was designed specifically for manscaping. Being versatile, Beardscape comes with eight-size guards so you can use it for various grooming needs. In addition, the runtime of the Beardscape is also much higher at four hours than one hour of the Lawn Mower 2.0.
If we talk about the performance of both trimmers on pubes Lawn Mower is a better option as it has teeth and blades specifically designed for it. Beardscape would also get the job done but not as cleanly and neatly as Lawn Mower 2.0.
