No matter your facial hair style, every man needs a good trimmer. The Axis is designed for men who maintain shorter facial hair styles ranging from stubble to a tight beard with guards ranging from 3mm up to 6mm. The narrow blade is ideal for reaching tighter areas and cutting straight lines while the .5mm cutting length produces a very tight stubble look. Never let your trimming get cut short by a low battery. The Axis has an integrated battery status display encircling the single button and 90 minutes of cutting time per charge. The Ceramic blade is 4 times harder than stainless steel, creates less friction and is extremely quiet. The Axis trimmer is gimmick free – you will not find any unnecessary features. One button, one function. If you are ready for a higher quality trimmer with a smooth and quite blade and amazing batter life, check out the Brio Axis.

The Brio SmartClean can freshen and cleanse your mouth in ways that put a manual toothbrush to shame. Using an optimal 31,000 brush oscillations per minute, your teeth will have never felt better or shined brighter. The Micro-Bubbles created by these sonic vibrations use the fluid in your mouth, not just the bristles, to clean your teeth and gums more effectively than manual brushing. The two-minute timer and 30-second zone reminders ensure your entire mouth is cleaned. Let Brio’s precision electronic system do the work. Don’t risk overly aggressive brushing – a common problem with manual toothbrushes that can weaken your teeth. The SmartClean’s optimized bristles offer the perfect balance: they are strong enough to clean and whiten your teeth, and yet gentle on your gums. Brush Smarter with the Brio SmartClean.
