Wahl 5546-200 2-in-1 Deluxe Lighted Trimmer Review

wahl 5546-200 trimmer

The Wahl 5546-200 2-in-1 Deluxe Lighted Trimmer is one of the inexpensive electric hair trimmers for facial hair in the market. This electric trimmer is referred to as a hygienic hair trimmer as it has two changeable heads—one for the nose and the other for other facial hair such as ear hair and eyebrows. It can be used dry or wet and is built with a mini-spotlight designed to guide users with their hair trimming. It promises a fast hair trimming experience sans the pain just like Wahl 5640 caused by pulling the hair. It comes with one AA battery, protective cap and has a three-year warranty.

Hygienic Feature

The Wahl 5546-200 2-in-1 Deluxe Lighted Trimmer boasts of being one of the most hygienic nasal hair trimmers in the market given its removable two cutting heads. One head is to be used for the nasal hair and the other head for other facial hair like eyebrows and ear hair, among others.

The design of the cutting heads differ as well since the head for the trimming of the nasal hair has a rotary blade designed exactly for the contour of the nose. The other trimming head has a reciprocating blade to trim unwanted hair in other parts of the face. These two heads are easy to remove and return when needed.

Mini-spotlight

One unique feature of the Wahl 5546-200 2-in-1 Deluxe Lighted Trimmer is its mini spotlight. The mini spotlights are located in each cutting head to help guide users see the area that they are trimming.

This feature, however, many users claim is of no help at all.

“The light doesn’t illuminate anything, so I found that part pretty useless.”- Amazon user comment

“But don’t count on the microscopic sized “integrated mini-spotlight” for any airport landing strip quality lighting when it’s buried inside of your nose or ear.”- Amazon user comment

“Product is as advertised. Works well for me. Light does nothing to help, but still a good product.”- Amazon user comment

User Friendly

The Wahl 5546-200 2-in-1 Deluxe Lighted Trimmer has a simple design and can be used easily to trim hair. Weighing 1.6 ounces and 8 inches tall, the product is easy to grip for users. Changing of the heads is trouble-free, too as the heads are easily attachable and detachable. Both cutting heads can be used wet or dry.

Cleaning of the product is hassle- free as well since users only need to place the trimmer under running water to clean the trimmer. Plus, this electric trimmer also comes with an eyebrow guide giving users evenly trimmed eyebrows.

What the Users are saying

The Wahl 5546-200 Ear, Nose and Brow 2-in-1 Deluxe Lighted Trimmer has received 4 out 5 stars among users from Amazon. The majority of these users are very happy with their purchase of the electric trimmer claiming that it gets the job done without pulling the hair.

“Like the title says. It’s simple, effective, and seems fairly robust. Nothing spectacular, but it does what it needs to,”- Amazon customer review comments.

“This nose/ear/brow hair shaver is great. It does exactly as expected and the price is fantastic compared to the in store prices. The light is a great added feature. It does not use up batteries very quickly. It is a very quiet shaver and it is the quality of a WHAL. I take it on vacation it is a great size to put in my suit case.”- Amazon customer review comments

“Used the rotary head to trim my nasal hair, and the Wahl did a very good job. I was surprised at how well and effortlessly it removed the hair. There was no pulling hair period. Next I used the detail head with the brow guard attached to it. Happy to say my eyebrows now look like they should. The guard stayed on and never moved.”- Amazon customer review comments

There are, however, a small number of users who question the durability of the product as their units broke down after several uses and the effectiveness claiming that it does not trim effectively.

“My boyfriend got about 6 months of light use with the Wahl trimmer – he maybe used it a dozen times – before it died. The trimmer was never dropped or mistreated, but the metal bit in the top kept falling out. The plastic piece holding the top part together finally broke after many times of putting the metal trimmer back in.” – Amazon customer review comments

“I do not find it very useful. It does not trim hair very well and I expected more out of it. Why is there a flashlight? The flashlight is useless.” – Amazon customer review comments
