Unique Cutting System
When you compare the NT9110 by Philips Norelco to other trimmers that are in the same price range, you’ll see that it actually has a pretty unique system for cutting the hairs. It’s the Philips Norelco patented tube shave technology that makes the difference, and it does a good job cutting with pulling and absolutely nicks or cuts to your skin. The head is also nicely angled for better access to hard to reach areas, which is a nice touch that not all nose trimmers have.
All Purpose Grooming Accessories
Another feature that you should consider when it comes to the Philips Norelco NT9110 is the addition of features such as the two eyebrow combs that come with it. These are not standard in more basic nose trimmers, making this a great choice for an all-over the face groomer. The plastic end cap that keeps it from collecting dust when not in use is a good touch, and you’ll like that they included a brush for cleaning.
Waterproof Use and Cleaning
The fact that this unit is waterproof is a good touch, so you can use it in the shower if you want to. The waterproof capability also means that cleaning is easy. This unit can even be deep cleaned without taking it apart – which sets it above some of the others in its class. All you have to do is let it soak in a bowel of soapy water and then rinse for a deep clean.
While some nose trimmers can pull and pinch, and even cut your skin, this NT9110 uses the Philips Norelco tube cutting system that really guards against painful trimming. The blade is completely guarded and works by sending the hairs through a small slit to be cut.
Easy to Hold Design
The Philips Norelco NT9110 nose hair trimmer has been designed for comfortable use. There is a soft grip on the body where you hold it. The twist on and off control is very easy to use and the angled head actually makes getting hard to reach hairs quite a bit easier.
Can Take More Passes
The advantage of the tube cutting design is that it will never hurt you. The disadvantage is that if you don’t hit the hair at the right angle, it won’t cut it. This could mean you have to do more passes over the same area. If pain-free trimming is important to you, this is a small price to pay in a nose trimmer.
May Not Cut Course Eyebrows
While this works great as a nose and ear trimmer regardless of the texture of the hair, it struggles with eyebrows that are coarse and wiry. If you’re just looking for a good nose trimmer that may occasionally cut your eyebrows as well, this Philips Norelco trimmer is still a good option.
If you definitely need heavy duty eyebrow care and you don’t want to have to make extra passes when doing your nose, you may have to look elsewhere. If your biggest concern is painless trimming and easy waterproof care, this Philips Norelco NT9110 Nose and Ear Trimmer is a great option for you.
