Manscaped is a California-based company dedicated to grooming and hygiene below the belt. They don’t shy from stating their mission loud and clear: To put it in a “nutshell,” Manscaped wants your balls to thank you for using the right products on the boys.
With a range of precision tools for the hard-to-navigate, sensitive groin area and post-trimming products, Manscaped has fast emerged as a one-stop-shop for men focused on the needs of what has, for too long, been a taboo subject.
Manscaped ads are everywhere. The brand clearly has an army of proactive marketers. So, it comes as no surprise that the grooming company is featured in popular media outlets, including ESPN, Forbes, Barstool Sports, and GQ. Manscaped tools, formulations, and accessories have a legion of loyalists on social media, with 430k followers on Instagram and another 120K more on Facebook.
Is all this thanks to quality products, aggressive marketing, or both? Is Manscaped actually good? This Manscaped shave review will give you the answers based on research into the brand, reviews, and customer experiences. A disclaimer first: I’m not really into high-end grooming, but I’m obsessively clean and dig products that promote hygiene. If Manscaped lives up to its claims, I’m all ears, eyes, and balls.
Overview of Manscaped
How do you define a perfect pecker? Now that this Manscaped shave review has your attention, let me present an eye and zip-opener: A team of Swiss researchers asked a bunch of women to rank eight different traits related to the penis in order of the most important to least important.
No, length did not rank first. Neither did girth. The most important was “general cosmetic appearance”, followed by “the state of male pubic hair”. It makes sense because trimming the hedges does make the tree look bigger.
In comes Manscaped with its range of trimmer, ball deodorants, Aloe Vera wipes, cologne, and boxers. Founded in 2017, Manscaped has carved a niche for itself in the downstairs grooming market. Most of its products are made in San Diego, California.
“Our mission is to refine the gentleman,” said Manscaped CEO Paul Tran in an interview with Forbes. The company, he said, does not skimp on active ingredients, design aesthetic, materials or finishes. “Everything we do is purely focused on quality,” he assures. How do customers respond to this? We’ll get to that soon in this Manscaped shave review.
In 2018, Manscaped shot to fame when founders and father-son duo Steve and Josh King walked into the American business reality television series Shark Tank seeking $500,000 for a 7% stake in their company.
The Manscaped founders walked out with $500,000 and a 25% stake for judges Lori Greiner and Mark Cuban. The Manscaped Shark Tank episode was particularly memorable for the Kings’ hilarious pitch. They demonstrated their products on a shrub, sending Twitter into a frenzy.
As you can no doubt tell from their creative and brazen marketing, the grooming brand is inspiring men to be open about manscaping, bringing the topic out of the shadows. Manscaped uses its momentum toward a good cause, having entered into a partnership with the Testicular Cancer Society. This non-profit organization provides help and support to cancer fighters, survivors, and caregivers.
This Manscaped shave review will now provide the brand’s perks, peaks, and pitfalls based on customer experiences and publicly available information on the products.

The biggest gripe among customers looking to buy a Manscaped product is the paucity of a non-sponsored Manscape review, especially for its best-seller, The Manscaped Lawn Mower 2.0. Note: This Manscaped shave review is not sponsored.
We’ll give you an honest review of the brand, including a deep-dive on individual Manscaped products and kits. This Manscaped shave review showcases some of the company’s most popular balls to the wall products, and find out what makes them buzz in a competitive razor market.
Manscaped The Lawn Mower 3.0 Review
Manscaped The Lawn Mower 3.0 is a third-generation electric trimmer featuring technology that’s safe on the skin and specifically designed for below-the-belt grooming and hygiene. To review this sleek piece of machinery, let’s start from the top and work our way to the bottom.
The Lawn Mower 3.0 is a newer version of Manscaped’s original razor: The Lawn Mower. The main advancement in the latest version based on a Manscaped Lawn Mower 2.0 review by the brand, is its super sharp snap-in ceramic blades.
These precision-engineered ceramic and stainless-steel blades are designed to withstand dirt and oil buildup, while also being easy to clean and replace. Each blade comes pre-lubricated to run smoothly and reduce wear and tear.
The Lawnmower 3.0 trimmer comes with an adjustable guide comb for different hair lengths. No matter what length you choose, it’s designed to get an even trim. The diamond-textured non-slip grip, LED light, and compact design helps you navigate all your nooks and crannies, wet or dry.
The Manscaped razor comes with a rechargeable battery that lasts for up to 90 minutes of use. This is clearly not just another vanity product. Need more proof? Here’s what a customer had to say in a Manscaped Reddit review: “Why did it take so long for the world to produce this!?”
Priced at $79.99, this Manscaped Trimmer has an average rating of 4.2/5 stars across more than 6,800 reviews on Amazon. Customers can also sign up for the $70 “Peak Hygiene Plan” to receive a replacement ceramic blade every 3 months for $15.
Manscaped Weed Whacker Review
Why take the shears to your shrub when you can swiftly weed it out? No, we aren’t talking about the hair down there, but the annoying, scraggly ones in your nose and ears that make you twitch and itch. The Manscaped Weed Whacker is a revolutionary electric ear and nose hair trimmer with technology that’s easy on the sensitive skin in those areas.
Fitted with a 9,000 RPM motor that powers a 360° rotary dual-blade system, The Weed Whacker’s battery holds charge for up to 90 minutes of use. This ear and nose trimmer is waterproof and can be used wet or dry. The tip is capped with a hypoallergenic stainless-steel cone that prevents pulls, nicks, and cuts.
To use The Weed Whacker, slowly insert the comfortable cone tip into your nose or ear and allow it to trim hair for at least 60 seconds to breathe easy again. Besides the battery and the blade, the trimmer comes with a USB charging cable, AC adapter, and cleaning brush. Performance and comfort are clearly built into this product, priced at $39.99.
Manscaped Crop Preserver
Your boys are now newly trimmed, but how do you keep them fresh and exuberant all day? The Manscaped Crop Preserver, a quick-absorbing gel, is formulated specially to prevent chafing and fight odor for up to 24 hours. People who like Manscaped love this product.
Here is a Manscaped ball deodorant review that captures the sentiment of many customers who have used The Crop Preserver: “This product makes me feel proud of my balls…and the main member too,” said a Manscaped review on the company website.
Active ingredients in the Manscaped Crop Preserver include tapioca starch to reduce friction, caprylic capric triglyceride antioxidants and aloe leaf juice that protects and hydrates skin. Manscaped recommends that customers apply and rub a small amount of the moisturizing deodorant into the palm and then apply on and around your sensitive areas. Sigh! This is dreamy. I just trashed my talcum.
Manscaped’s powerful moisturizing ‘fresh ball preserver’ costs $13. You can also save 23% by opting for the Replenish Plan, billed at $10 plus tax every month.
Manscaped Crop Mop Review
An average day can be quite taxing for the male groin. Whether you’re sitting in front of a computer all day, toiling in a smoky kitchen, working out, or hammering away at construction, your balls take a beating. Manscaped Crop Mop ball wipes are an oasis amid this grim and grime.
Infused with Aloe Vera leaf extract and made with a soft woven material, these individually packaged wipes keep your balls clean and refreshed, and your skin smooth and balanced. These anti-bacterial wipes, formulated with vegan ingredients, can be carried in your pocket or wallet, since they’re approximately the size of a credit card.
The Manscaped Crop Mop wipes are great for daily use at work, at the gym, camping, while travelling, and when your next shower seems a long way off. Priced at $13, each pack contains 15 individually wrapped wipes.
You can also save 31% by signing up for the company’s Replenish Plan: Just pay $9 (plus tax) every month and have your monthly supply of crop mop wipes delivered to you. That’s a sweet deal, although there are lots of cheaper hygiene wipe options out there.
Manscaped Cologne Review
The shrub in your nether region is freshly trimmed. Your nostril and ear hairs have been weeded out. You’re good to go. Oh wait, just a finishing touch. A quick spritz of cologne. Manscaped Cologne opens with a light citrus burst, dances around with a gentle whiff of sambac jasmine, before settling into light wood.
This Manscaped essence, which comes in a 50ml spray bottle, smells like the company’s other formulations and lends its wearer a sense of refinement. Priced at $40, the scent is strong enough to make an impression, but subtle enough to add intrigue. Customers can also choose the Replenish Plan and pay $35 every 6 months to restock on cologne.
Manscaped Boxers Review
The last thing I want over my groomed goods are a pair of boxers that feel like a tinderbox or ones riddled with holes that give them partial ventilation. The Manscaped Boxers are designed to accentuate the brand’s line-up for below-the-waist grooming. If you’re going to take care of your cucumber, it’s got to have quality packaging.
The Manscaped Boxers are engineered specifically to reduce chafing, built with microfibers that prevent a swamp crotch. They’re built with a contoured pouch that increases comfort while a 4-way stretch keeps the family jewels from rubbing uncomfortably against each other. A no-roll waistband provides maximum support below the waist.
Manscaped Boxers are made out of 92% polyester and 8% elastane. Whether you’re lounging around the house or running a marathon, these boxers aren’t partial. They’re for every lad. They let the force be with your balls.
Manscaped underwear comes in waist sizes between S (26-29) and XXXL (47-50) (S – 26-29 to XXXL – 47-50). Priced at $20, these boxers may seem a bit steep, but Manscaped loyalists say it’s a small price to pay for the comfort the boxers provide.
Manscaped The Perfect Package 3.0 Review
For all the men and women out there scouting for a gift or those looking for a subtle way to tell your partner it’s time to groom down there, Manscaped has a solution. The Perfect Package 3.0 comes with three key grooming items: The Lawn Mower 3.0, The Crop Preserver, and the breezy Manscaped Boxers. The kit also includes a bottle of the Crop Reviver, a ball toner and refresher spray, a mat to keep your bathroom tidy while grooming, and a luxury toiletry bag.
The Manscaped Crop Reviver, with its infusion of Aloe Vera and Witch Hazel extracts, keeps your buds cool, calm, and protected after a good shave. The Shed, Manscaped’s premium leather toiletry bag, features a secure zippered closure, a waterproof interior lining, and a convenient grab-and-go handle.
The Magic Mat makes you laugh while grooming. Yeah, you had that right. These disposable shaving mats carry entertainment news you can read while standing over it to give your balls a shave. Personally, the last thing I would want to do with a razor in my hand and my balls in the vicinity is to be distracted. But for those who are braver, it could definitely make the bathroom routine much more interesting. These disposable mats also save toilet rolls and time that’s usually spent unclogging the train.
The Manscaped Boxers and The Shed toiletry bag come free with this package, priced at $99. I’d say The Perfect Package 3.0 is the ideal gift to pamper balls.
Manscaped Reviews: What Do Customers Think?
Manscaped received global acclaim after the Shark Tank Manscaped episode. Customers who’ve used Manscaped products have, however, given it mixed reviews, with the scales mostly tilted in favor of the brand.
As part of my research for this Manscaped shave review, I looked up customer feedback beyond the brand’s website. On Sitejabber, Manscaped has a consumer rating of 3.88/5 stars from 107 reviews indicating that most customers are generally satisfied with their purchase. Of the 104 reviews on TrustPilot, 82% have rated Manscaped as Excellent. Most Manscaped Amazon reviews have praised the brand for its sleek, non-slip design, attractive packaging, and innovative line-up.
So, what are the company’s shortcomings? When the Manscaped Lawn Mower 2.0 was released, quite a few customers complained of nicks and yanked hairs. “Beware,” said a Manscaped 2.0 Reddit review. “The razor continues to draw blood with this product,” added another Manscaped Lawn Mower 2.0 review. Manscaped soon rolled out The Lawn Mower 3.0, engineered to reduce cuts. This proved an instant hit, although a handful still complained of hair yanks.
Other common issues with Manscaped concern shipping times, which tend to take longer than expected for some customers.
Is Manscaped Worth It?
For starters, it’s great that Manscaped encourages conversations on below-the-belt hygiene and supports an empowered culture surrounding men’s self-care and health through the Testicular Cancer Society. If you are into grooming, Manscaped could be the thing for you. Their pricing may be a little steep, yet the quality and range of Manscaped’s products make it a win, especially as a gift.
This Manscaped shave review also gives the brand brownies points for its functionality. I would, however, suggest exercising some caution and research before purchasing Manscaped products. Compare their specificities with those of similar products offered by bigger brands in the industry. Based on the customer reports I found, many buyers are happy with their products, and you probably will be too.
I also commend Manscaped for its dedication to innovation. In three years since its launch, the brand already rolled out three different versions of its trimmer. It’s nice to know they’re listening to customers and that they care for our balls.
Manscaped clearly has an aggressive marketing strategy. By the end of this Manscaped shave review, I had Manscaped ads popping out of my phone, laptop and television screens. So much for discretion. The challenge is to look beyond these spiels and fish out real experiences.

Where to Buy Manscaped
Manscaped products are available on the brand’s official website Manscaped.com and on Amazon. They are also available in various retail stores in the US, including Walmart.
This Manscaped shave review addresses the most common questions asked by new and existing customers:
Can you use the Manscaped on your face?
Manscaped says No. The reason the company gives is expected of any brand that exclusively focuses on under-the-belt grooming: The gross factor. While Manscaped admits its trimmer effectively mows hair on the face, head, and body, it advises against doing this for hygiene purposes. The company also offers Manscaped The Plow 2.0, a Manscaped razor, for the face instead.
How often should you shave your balls?
The short and quick answer is that, for most men, trimming or shaving their pubic region once every 2 weeks seems to be the sweet spot. A lot of men also report trimming the hedges before a date, which this Manscaped shave review thinks is a great idea.
What is Manscaped’s Shipping Policy?
Manscaped offers free shipping to the US, U.K, Australia, and Canada. Typically shipping takes about 4-9 business days, but the brand has reported delays owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Customers receive an email containing tracking information once their order ships. Tracking can also be accessed by logging into the site to access replenishments, current, and past orders.
What is Manscaped’s Return Policy?
All Manscaped products carry a 30-day return policy. If you are not satisfied with your product, you can return it for a full refund within 30 days of purchase, provided it is unused, undamaged, and in its original packaging. Refunds are returned to the original form of payment.
To initiate a return, contact the Manscaped customer support team by email. In the email include your name, phone number, order ID, product you wish to return, proof of purchase and a brief summary of your reason for return. Once Manscaped accepts this request, you’ll receive a Return Material Authorization (RMA) tracking number.
Note that The Lawnmower 2.0 and The Lawnmower 3.0 come with a 1-year warranty for any manufacturer defects.
