When you’re looking for the best beard trimmer for yourself, you can’t take a hasty decision. That’s why you need to read reviews. But how do you find unbiased reviews written by normal people? For all you know you might be reading sponsored reviews that praise a particular cheap trimmer so much. And you’re sold to that.
In this article we will go through the common steps in getting the reviews of the best beard trimmers out there.
- Amazon reviews, or some Amazon reviews at least
Amazon still serves the purpose of one of the biggest ecommerce portals out there. Whatever it sells, is purchased by tons of people. A lot of them actually want to help other buyers make better decisions. Always read the negative reviews. If there’s just one isolated case of some problem, then you don’t need to worry about it. But if more than one review talks about the same problem, then it’s something to be concerned about.
Some Amazon reviews are sponsored. But most are not. It still helps to read them and know more about the products.
- The top list comparison
This is a better mechanism to find out the best product out of a selection. What you do is you run searches for lists. Like “top 5 beard trimmers” or the “best clippers for beards”, etc. and you open all reliable results.
After that, you compare the different tables. Those which are in the higher end of the list in multiple sources can be trusted more than those that only appear once or twice out of 10 such pages, even if they’re #1. Those might be sponsored.
- Friends and family
Finally, friends and family can help give you better reviews than the internet. Always ask those you know personally about what trimmers they use and why. This will give you a good idea about what products can you use, as they will also know your preferences. But this limits the number of products available for your comparison. So it’s a good idea to mix all the three steps.
