Panasonic ER-GN30 Review Nose & Facial Hair
This is the Shaving Emporium review of the best selling nose trimmer which is the Panasonic ER-GN 30 model. This one costs a little over £12, depending on where you make your purchase. This is simply a nice little piece of kit for any man who likes to be able to do some good facial grooming. This gadget will look after:
- Nose Hair
- Ear Hair
Here is a no fluff short video from the manufacturer Panasonic.
As you can see from the video above, this facial trimmer does what it says on the tin. As they say the effectiveness of this one is in the detail, so let’s have a closer look at that. Many of the guys here in the Emporium have this one as their first choice, so it was easy to gather up some quick and honest opinions.
Reviews of the ER-GN30 Facial Trimmer
The overall view from our own chaps was that this one is effective and does a really good job. Quite a few of them had used other nose trimmers before and then made the move across to this particular model. When you are using a product like this, then there is one thing that you must absolutely avoid. That is of course any tendency for hair pulling.
If you have ever used a low quality trimmer, where the blades suddenly rip a hair from your nostril, then you will know exactly what I mean. That is a painful experience and one that you will want to avoid at all costs. Two features will prevent that from happening:
- Sharp precise blades
This Panasonic model has those so you will be able to trim without pain, and that always works for me.
Buyer’s Reviews at Amazon
When you check out or do any research, then the one thing you should always do is have a look at what other real life buyers are saying. A great place to find these is at Amazon where about 1 in 100 people will take the time to leave an honest review. When we checked this model out, there were over 800 reviews, and that has earned this product a place on the best sellers list.
Having lots of reviews is a good thing because you know that the product is selling a lot. However these buyers also give a score out of 5 to rate the product. We have found that any product with an average 4 star rating or higher is a really good product. The ER-GN30 gets an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars, which is top notch.
The actual product is light in weight as it is 150 grams and is a black colour. For those who like their sizes, this one measures 16.5 x 11 x 5 cm. That’s about 5″ long and is an easy item to pack for travelling around.
One of its main selling points is that you simply have to give this a quick wash under the tap after each use and that will keep it in tip top shape. Normally I just rinse it quickly under the tap, but it can be immersed in water if you want to give it a stronger clean.
It uses rotary blades for cutting and compared to any other nose and ear trimmer that I have used, this one is particularly quiet. This one is also certainly a heck of a lot safer than trying to trim your nose hair with a pair of scissors.
Here is what a couple of reviewers over at Amazon said about this Panasonic model:
The long and the short of it!

As I enter middle age I want to protect those around me from exposure to the inevitable growth of unsightly ear and nose hair, therefore, I bought this Panasonic trimmer. I am delighted with the design and quality of this product especially in light of the price. Functionally it is very effective and its’ ergonomics make it very easy to use plus it runs for ages off the single AA battery which although, it was supplied, when I received my trimmer, recent comments suggest that is no longer the case. It trims hairs very easily and can be rinsed clean under the tap. It also comes complete with a conical cover for the blade and a small cleaning brush. In summary, well designed, effective and excellent value for money. Recommended.
Now that one did make me smile, but I do understand exactly what he is saying. I attend a lot of business meetings and I have sat around the table with a lot of older men. Having to look at mini forests protruding from their nose and ears, or set of eyebrows that could thatch a cottage, is not the most pleasant of views. I have often been tempted to leave the odd brochure of a nose trimmer at each of those places around the table. Just thing for £12 and about a minute a day we could all be spared.

Better than Expected

I was using Remington trimmer but was not happy at all. This product has exceeds my expectations for the following reasons.
1. Good build quality.
2. Value for money
3. Very effective. The rotation of blade is fast and it is quick in getting the job done.
4. Will strongly recommend.
This product runs off 1 “AA” battery. It used to be included however postal regulations in the UK have changed and those rules no longer allow batteries to be included. Yes I agree another stupid rule, but you will have to get a battery. Most people will probably have a pack of these around the house so hopefully not too much of a problem.
We have a number of people here who use and really like this product. It is a compact device that is easy to look after. Most importantly it trims and cuts really well and will help keep your facial hair under complete control. Therefore we have no problem recommending this one at all.
