Product Shot 1 The Pros:Very good quality product and extremely accurate! Works without batteries. I was pleasantly surprised. This is a great little gadget.

The Cons:Company places reviews on it's own product. On this site 4 comments from people who joined this site to review this product and it just so happens there are also 4 "pros" as well as 4 "thumbs up" for each of the 4 "pros"...well until i gave each one a "thumbs down" for trying to trick all of us into buying it.

Mack: #groom_mate_platinum_xl_nose_ear_hair_trimmer I have to agree with 'TRFE' but, only partly. The reviews are clearly sales pitch rants - not actual reviews by folks that have purchased the item. Who really makes statements like 'I can trim nose hair on-the-go' and 'a must have men's grooming product'? Seriously, who keeps a nose hair trimmer in their pocket? If a man needs to carry this in his pocket when he goes out then I would suspect he has bigger problems than nose hair.
As for the product, I haven't purchased it but, I am considering it or a similar item. Nov 22, 12

trfe: #groom_mate_platinum_xl_nose_ear_hair_trimmer Could be a SCAM! The reviewers on this site all joined just to place reviews for this product. Click on their names and look at their history! The first review from Johnbellm seems legit right? Look at his profile, his "about me" is the product website!

This product could be fine, but the number of fishy reviews and people associated with the company putting in positive comments and ratings on this site and Amazon are making me very apprehensive about the product.

I might stay away...unless i can find some legit information without the company groom mate trying to pull the wool over my eyes like i'm some dumb schmuck. Feb 23, 09

henryjkennedy: #groom_mate_platinum_xl_nose_ear_hair_trimmer I was pleasantly surprised to see one of my favorite grooming products on this website. I have owned the Platinum XL nose hair trimmer for about 6 months now and it is a great grooming tool. Very easy to use and I have yet to pull any nose hair like the many other models that I once owned used to do. This is a must have for any guy that is concerned about keeping nose hair under control. The other thing that I really like about it is that it is so compact that I can keep it in my pocket and trim nose hairs "on-the-go". Sep 10, 07

James Bramwell: #groom_mate_platinum_xl_nose_ear_hair_trimmer Never thought I'd write one of these reviews but here goes. I've bought several less than impressive battery-operated nose hair trimmers. Guess where they were made?! It's a big country with an oppressive government and lots and lots of poor, under fed people who work for slave wages to bring us lots of cheap products. Not to head off on some philisophical rant but I suppose you get exactly what you pay for in life. Then I bought a Platinum XL (by Groom Mate - whoever that is). I've got another name for this little trimmer. The Dream Machine. This thing actually works. It's nice and small and no confusing electrical parts and whirling blades. What I'd call simplicity at it's finest. Actually...quite an amazing little device. (Wish I'd invented it.) Stick it in your nose and rotate the bottom handle at any speed you like. Then, take it out of your nose and you won't believe it. Them little metal cutters are full of guess what! - your nose hair - and lots of it! And I really like the fact that it works without batteries. My only beef is the $20 price tag. But you know, I'll have this thing for a long time so I guess it was worth parting with some cash to finally have a quality trimmer. And with any luck, I'll pass it along to my next of kin. Sep 5, 07

CuriousGeorge: #groom_mate_platinum_xl_nose_ear_hair_trimmer I purchased one of these nose hair trimmers a couple of months ago and it is probably the best $20 I have ever spent. This trimmer is easy to use and gently removes nose hair with no more pulling or tugging like the old battery-operated models I used to own. Also, the rotary cutting blades never come in contact with the skin in your nostril.
I highly recommend it... Aug 31, 07
