It can easily reach any area of the men’s back side and catch all hairs.

Skin-Friendly Blades

  • Before use, make sure the battery is fully charged.


Always follow the instructions in the user manual. There are 3 adjustable trimming combs for 3 different lengths.

Don’t move the trimmer quickly, move it gently over the skin, and if you are trimming for the 1st time, you should be more careful.

NOTE: trimming will be easier when your hair is dry.

  • Since there are 3 trimming combs (3mm, 5mm, and 7mm), select and snap the desired trimming comb attachment onto the groomer- the teeth of the comb should point toward you.
  • Now press the ON/OFF button to turn the power ON.
  • To get an optimal trim, move the groomer against the hair growth. Try to move it gently don’t press it too hard.
  • Always be sure the comb is fully connected to your skin.


Remember, this Philips Norelco Bodygroom 3500 is a body groomer only.

So, don’t use it to shave or trim your facial hair. You can use it all over the body.

You may have to feel irritations and discomfort when you shave your sensitive areas for the first time.

It is normal; adjusting to your skin will take some time.

Dry use is much better and faster than wet use. Because before a wet use, you must prepare your skin with shaving gel or foam.

  • Press the ON/OFF button to turn it ON.
  • Before shaving, ensure the foil is in complete contact with your skin.
  • Move the shaver gently over the skin; don’t press it hard otherwise, it can cause skin irritations.

To minimize the risk of electric shock, fire, injury, or any electrical accident to persons:

  • Close supervision is essential when you will apply it to children or invalids.
  • Never charge the groomer beside the skin or bath tab where it can fall into the water.
  • Only use the included AC adapter.

  • It is a body grooming kit, so don’t use it for your facial hairs or your head hairs.
  • Before connecting the adapter to the electrical outlet, check it. Never connect a damaged cord to the electrical outlet.
  • Keep the groomer and its charger away from the heated surface.
  • Before use, always check the trimmer, foil, cutter, and blades. If they are damaged, don’t use it without replacement.


  • Fully waterproof.
  • The hypoallergenic foil is very good for skin, even sensitive skin.
  • Multiple trimming heads for different hair lengths.
  • The extra long back attachment handle helps me reach any body area.
  • Good Battery life.


  • Not for facial hairs. Need to buy a facial shaver separately.


It is a popular body groomer, and most customers provided positive reviews.

Where some users have negative reviews, too, my rating of this shaver is 4 out of 5, and if you are looking for a dedicated body groomer, you can try this.

It’s risk-free, as you can return it to the dealer in case of dissatisfaction within 45 days.

If you are looking for a groomer with facial hair shaving and trimming capability, rather select the Philips Norelco Bodygroom 7000 instead.

But there is no back grooming attachment with the Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7000, whereas you get the long back shaving attachment with the Philips 5000.

The Philips Norelco Multigroom 7000 will also be great for whole-body grooming, including face and head.
