This is my first go-around with a dedicated ball shaver and to be perfectly honest it is a bit weird writing about it. Sure I used all the likely tools in the past to shave my boys, scissors, hair shears, razors, and such to tackle the jungle down there but never thought I would write about it. But oh have times changed. Today, in this Meridian Trimmer Review – Best Male Pubic Trimmer we will be reviewing The Maintenace Package from Meridian.
As I forego my reluctance and my embarrassment I hope to help others decide if this is a worthy purchase by taking it through its course. I guess I will have to just grab my nuts and “sack up” on this one.
In full disclosure, I reached out to Meridian to ask for some products in which to try out and write about them here on my website. They sent me some products to review and I will be giving my honest opinion on how well they work. If you find my review helpful please support it by clicking the links provided in my reviews.

Now, let’s get to it!
All About Meridian Grooming
Meridian is mostly about grooming below the belt, you know the delicate areas. As they sell products that help maintain a clean and hair-free groin area. Basically, shaving your balls. This is their business and their business is built around this, getting rid of hair around the “junk” areas.
They also sell other hygiene products like a nose hair remover, skin products, and four different bundles for grooming.
The Maintenance Package – What Is It?
I was sent the Maintenance Package in which to review but this included the Meridian Trimmer and it can be bought inside a bundle or bought separately. I really appreciate the extra two replacement blades provided in this package, as you can replace the blades as needed. This package is essential for taking care of grooming hair around the groin area. The trimmer can also be used elsewhere on the body that needs hair to be trimmed, love multifunctional tools.
What Is Included?
1 – Meridian Trimmer
2 – Adjustable Guide Combs
2 – Replacement Blades
1 – Cleaning Brush
1 – USB
1 – The Spray
1 – Set of Instructions
The Low Low Down On Performance
First off, I am very happy with the performance of the Meridian Trimmer. Absolutely no nicks or cuts from using this trimmer in the down-under region.
The first time is always the scariest but it can very quickly become “old hat” and a normal essential hygiene routine.
If you have ever had bloody nuts after shaving down there with hair shears or a razor it will not happen with this trimmer. This is due to the ceramic blade, design, and quality of the product. So rest assured, one of the best options to avoid nicking the old beanbag.
The speed of the trimmer seems very adequate and powers through the hair without bogging down in the slightest. You can usually tell by the sound it makes when you run the device if it is going to work properly, and this trimmer doesn’t disappoint. They claim it runs at 6,000 strokes a minute.
Fits in the hand very nicely and is easy to hold and maneuver. They nailed this! It would be hard to improve upon the handle. This can also be used in the shower as it is waterproof. I am personally not a fan of shaving in the shower but I know some men are and this would be excellent for that.
The Spray I found out to be great! Subtle and clean scent profile, not perfumery. Great if you have a problem with odor and sweating down under. I was expecting to hate this but actually loved it. It is nice to be surprised.
How Does It Perform Against Other Groin Trimmers?
I recently put this head to head with Manscaped The Lawn Mower 4.0 and The Meridian Trimmer easily beat The Lawn Mower overall. Check out this head-to-head post here, Manscaped Vs Meridian – Which Is The Better Ball Trimmer?
This is the best groin trimmer I have reviewed to date and I have reviewed a lot of them. The number reason for this is because it does not ever nick you. Plus it is a quality device with a well-thought design that simply just works.
Pros & Cons
- Makes manscaping easy!
- A real confidence booster!!!
- Takes hair pretty darn close to the skin and can’t really fill stubble at all.
- Works fast, a couple of swipes here a tug here, and your done. Way faster than shaving.
- Removing hair around the groin greatly reduces the chance of having a bad odor down under. As hair collects sweat and gives bad bacteria a breeding ground in which to thrive.
- Using a pubic trimmer greatly increases the appearance and attractiveness down there. Your partner will thank you later. After all, it is not the 70s anymore.
- No bloody nuts! Zero nicks and cuts using this! A real plus! Bye-bye using hair shears and the bloody aftermath.
- The (Balls) Spray leaves a real clean scent (almost neutral but not) and feel. Quite surprised by this and thought I would hate it but actually, I like it.
- Perfect size and handle. Fits very comfortably in the hand.
- Waterproof and rust-resistant. Can be used in the shower too. Just be sure to use it when charging it to keep it away from any water.
- Depending on what package you purchase or if you just buy the trimmer Meridian sells replacement blades for all their products.
- It is powerful enough that it does not bog down with trimming hair, as it has 6,000 strokes a minute.
- 1-year warranty on any manufacturer defects.
- Trimmer can be used to trim the whole body from head to toe.
- Comes with a full 90-minute charge. This is unusual as often you must first charge for hours and then use.
- Guide combs work great for shorting the length of hair anywhere on your body.
- The Meridian trimmer comes in two colors Onyx and Sage.
- Battery indicator lights. Three lights on the front to let you know how much charge you have left.
- Would be nice if this came with a small case or bag.
How Does The Meridian Compare To Other Ball Trimmers?

Meridian Newest Trimmer
I’ve reviewed and written a full in-depth post about Meridian’s newest trimmer found here, Meridian Trimmer Plus Review – Worth Getting? Find Out. It has more features and still has great performance with the quality you would expect. Worth checking out.
Can Women Use The Meridian?
Yes, Meridian states women can use this to trim hair down in the groin area, arms, legs, or anywhere to get rid of hair. On top of that many women also state this is a great trimmer for trimming groin hair.
Is Trimming Your Ball Hair Good Enough?
This is advertised as a trimmer and not a shaver, so if you want those super smooth dolphin nuts, your gonna have to shave them with a razor. Don’t get me wrong the Meridian trimmer does a great job of getting really close to the skin but for closeness, you’re going to have to shave with some type of razor. It does get hair pretty darn close to the skin and is way better than other methods. Trimming hair is also a lot faster than shaving.
When you trim your ball hair with a trimmer oftentimes it is enough and you can not really tell there is stubble down there either by sight or feel. I just trim using a ball trimmer and it is more than good enough and I have zero need to shave down there.
The Meridian does a great quick job of taking care of removing pubic hair that you could just skip shaving. I find shaving takes too long and is more problematic than trimming. Plus it is way faster and easier.
Where Else Can You Use This Trimmer?
Feel free to use this on other parts of your body, this can be used on the entire body, from head to toe.
If you want to reduce the length of arm or leg hair I highly recommend using the Guide Combs that are provided as they do a very nice job of reducing the length of hair. Unless you want to be hairless. Start with the biggest guide comb and work down to the smaller guide comb to find the perfect length you want.
Should You Clean The Trimmer?
Yes, use the cleaning brush (provided with purchase) after a trimming session to help keep the trimmer working its best after each use. You can also rinse it under the sink to help flush hair particles out of the blade. I also recommend patting the trimmer down with a towel to remove any excess water before storing it.
Is The Spray Good?
Oh yeah, this stuff is great and it is super easy to just spritz a few times and go.
Using The Spray (provided) definitely adds a layer of refinement and was pleasantly surprised I like it. I thought I was going to hate it but how wrong was I? I actually loved it. As it has a very pleasant scent that is very natural and low-key.
How To Use The Meridian Trimmer?
Their trimmer is pretty freaking safe to use is and I have never been nicked by it yet. Yet, there are some techniques and guide combs to throw into the mix as well to help. When first initializing a cut, do not go straight down with the blade at 90 degrees to your cutting surface, this is called a plunge cut. This type of cut can potentially nick you with any trimmer. What you want to do is an approach with the trimmer at more of a 45-degree angle.

The Final Shave
I just stepped over that line from mediocre to greatness after I used this product…in a grooming sense.
It’s that damn good! Really ups your confidence as well.
From using hair shears and scissors to a dedicated modern manscaping trimmer I feel a veil has been passed to another level up in my “grooming game”. I’ve gone forward and no longer ever want to go back to the old ways. It’s fast and painless and I never will go back to the way it was before. A complete game-changer.
Update: Since I initially reviewed The Meridian it’s been over a year and I have yet to review another ball trimmer that works as well as the Meridian trimmer. I have reviewed a bunch of different trimmers on this website since then and the king of ball trimmers is still the Meridian.
Needless to say, I am pleased and very happy with this product. Does a great job! It makes quick work of unwanted hair and I highly recommend getting it. Nice job, Meridian!
Any questions? Any Comments? Love to hear them!

Wow! amazing I have not seen this in a long time. I am in love with it for this one reason, “If you have ever had bloody nuts after shaving down there with hair shears or razor it will not happen with this trimmer”. Meridian Trimmer am coming for you.
You made me laugh Nyambura! It is a really good trimmer!!!
I have been looking for a trimmer below the belt for my husband and I found your review very helpful. Think it is a good idea to buy the maintenance kit along with the trimmer at the same time. I am going to bookmark and share with my husband for him to decide if like me to purchase for him. Thanks again for a great review that is to understand.
Okay, it is a great kit and worth a look.
Wow, the presentation on your site is really amazing, there are so many images and visuals I can tell you’ve put a lot of time into it. One question though can my women use it to shave down there too? My girlfriend was looking for a trimmer for similar purposes as what the Meridian does.
Thanks for the compliment and the comment and question.
Yes, women can use the Meridian Trimmer also to trim hair. They might have an even easier time than us “boys”.
I was looking for a promo code, and I am glad you have one. I have read a few posts about Meridian Trimmer. It was easy to make up my mind to buy one. A trimmer can save us a lot of time. However, previous posts I read didn’t seem to have the promo code you included here. Can trimmer be for hands and arms? Or a shaver would be better?
The Meridian is a great trimmer all around. I would recommend using a trimmer for trimming hair on the arms and hands. (Yes, the Meridian would work awesomely!) You can use a guide comb either to take the hair down to a certain level and still have hair on your arms that looks natural, as most men do have hair on their arms and hands. Or you can take the hair down with no guide comb attached which will leave stubble.
It all depends on what you are going for. Just to trim the hair or to shave it completely off. If you want it completely off using the Meridian and then a razor would probably be the best and quickest method. Hope this answers your question Abel. Let me know.
I have been using all kinds of trimmers and shavers for decades, but I can’t say that I ever found the perfect one.
Actually, I use depilatory cream for my balls and trimmers for the rest of my body. Like most men, I’m over-protective with them and always found the idea of a shaver around them quite scary.
Even now that I found your review on this product, I can’t say that I’m fully convinced, but I think I’m going to give it a try.
I’ll come back later with some feedback after using it.
It is always scary the first time but you will quickly get over this once you have done it a few times. I understand your reluctance, as most men do too, but it is completely safe as long as you follow the manufacturer’s instructions and take it slow. You mentioned that the Meridian was a shaver it is actually a trimmer. These are two different kinds of tools.
Using depilatory cream is very popular as well and if you like using it then keep using it. Everybody has different reasons why they like something and I can’t argue with that.
Please do come back and let me know how it went. I would love to hear what your opinion is after using the Meridian.
Damn my husband needs one of these lol. OMG he has had a few close calls with razors, let’s not even go there! I am ever so pleased your first round was ‘Nick’ free! 😉 I am also sure you are doing too!
There are so many pro’s to using this shaver vs standard brands. Such good timing with Father’s Day coming up too. I really appreciate the discount code as well. Thank you so much for all transparency on this rather sensitive topic lol as I certainly wouldn’t have known what to look for without your help.
Hope you have a great day!
Yes, it is one of the best trimmers for having the most nick protection. As I have yet nicked myself with the Meridian Trimmer. Plus it does a great job at trimming hair. Makes a great gift for the right person in your life.
Meridian makes quality and reliable products for grooming and it is good to see that the trimmer has been proved to be the best one for grooming your delicate areas. You certainly do not want nicks or cuts, so great to read your experience with using the trimmer, resulted in a perfect finish.
I like the fact that the Meridian trimmer can also be used by women, which is far better than using a razor for grooming your groin hairs.
You mention the spray that was part of the package, but what is the purpose of the spray? Do you use it before shaving to soften the skin and hair, or do you use it afterwards like an after-shave? Is it made with natural or organic ingredients that is suitable for very sensitive skin?
Thank you for sharing this helpful review. .
Meridian does a good job with their products for sure.
The purpose of The Spray is for wearing throughout the day for odor protection and anti-chafing as well. This is for just an all-day comfort for that area. Hope this helps.
