Panasonic ER-GN30-K Vortex Review

Stop ignoring the hair coming coming out of your nose and other parts of your face. 

Besides looking disgusting, it also implies that you are not a hygienic person. 

You can get rid of this unwanted hair with the Panasonic ER-GN30-K Vortex. This is a nose and facial hair trimmer.

Panasonic is into the business of manufacturing large scale appliances but now, they are also providing miniature appliances that address grooming issues.

The Vortex is Panasonic’s answer to facial hair problems, especially hairs inside the nose and ear. It is Panasonic’s own nose hair trimmer. It took the Health and Personal Care section of Amazon by storm and now it is ranked #1 in Amazon’s Trimmers and Clippers’ category. 

This product has a 4.5 out of 5 stars rating on Amazon with more than 2,300 reviews from satisfied customers (as at the time of writing). Let’s take a more detailed look at this awesome product by Panasonic.

Design And Durability

This nose hair trimmer has a solid design. It has an ergonomic style that gives you a comfortable grip and an efficient operation. The whole product is made with minimal colors; this gives it a simple and elegant look. There are no useless additions, instead, Panasonic focuses on making a product that would deliver on its promise. 

The Vortex is very easy to set up and only requires an AA battery. The procedure is not complicated  at all; it gives you the time to trim and clean your hair. It is very lightweight, portable, easy to use and clean. 

It is designed to fit in small pouches. It has a dimension of  5.2 x 1.4 x 1.3 inches  and weighs 1.1 ounces (with a shipping weight of 4.8 ounces). It is a good travel companion; it is very light compared to other trimmers out there. It is made in Japan and designed for use in the shower.

The plastic build may make you feel uneasy and you might feel the product would easily break. Of course, it wouldn’t break if you handle it with care. The Vortex is fragile because of the plastic chassis, but it would last you for as long as you don’t forget to maintain it. Durability boils down to how you take care of the product.

Power And Performance

This hair trimmer is a powerful accessory that can be added to a man’s grooming arsenal. The Vortex easily gets the job done. It cuts fast and with minimal errors. Just don’t forget to use an alkaline battery because you wouldn’t want the product to stop working while it is in your nose. Right? A weak battery would give the trimmer a slow rotating motion that may not be enough to pull and cut nasal hairs. 

Even after several uses, the Vortex still delivers optimum performance. Panasonic says the trimmer blade is made to last three years of regular trimming and cutting. This means your only real worry, with this product, is getting a battery that would be used. Most of the time, a good battery would be the key to a superb cleaning performance. An underpowered unit would definitely give you a headache when it fails to do the job.

The price to performance ratio is very good with this one. For less than $15, you can get the Panasonic ER-GN30-K Vortex Trimmer and you may not need another trimmer for a while.

The Blade
The secret to the Vortex’s ability to cut flawlessly is the blade. The dual-edge blade cuts hairs from the top and from the sides. This blade design is the one that you need when cutting facial hairs. 

It is a curved, hypo-allergenic stainless steel blade that gives you ample amount of hair left for the natural filter that you need. There is also a rounded cap on top, the blade is located below the cap. This design helps in preventing skin contact and gives you the assurance that the trimmer is safe to use.

Washing and cleaning the blade is easy because of the holes on the top and on the sides. You just need to run it under an open tap and let the excess hairs flow away with the water.

The Vortex kit comes with the trimmer, protective cap, cleaning brush and user manual. The only add-on that you might want to invest in is a carrying case for better protection.

* It is easy to use. With the touch of a button, you can clean your nose and facial hairs
* It is compact and extremely portable
* The product is very convenient to use and safe, so you wouldn’t suffer from any pulling, or nicks and cuts
* It is made of plastic, but can last a long time
* The blades are built to last several years
* Maintenance is very easy. You wouldn’t need any special brushes or oil, which makes it a very low maintenance device 

* Some people consider the trimmer to be of poor quality but Redletter, a satisfied Amazon customer talked about having this product for two years (with the blade still as sharp as when he bought it)
* The battery will only last for up to 90 minutes before it would need replaced, but that really depends on how much you need to use it
* Also, replacement parts are hard to get, if you’re able to get them at all


Overall this is a trimmer that gets the job done.  It’s not a fancy product and doesn’t require a lot of attention.  It’s an inexpensive little trimmer that will get you by.  

The Panasonic nose and facial hair trimmer’s goal is to provide an easy, safe and cheap way to trim and cut nasal and facial hairs. It definitely meets its goal and even exceeds peoples’ expectations, though some might not be happy with the trimmer.

Several people are already enjoying the convenience of this product and if you want a trimmer that is affordable, safe and of premium quality, the Panasonic ER-GN30-K Vortex is a good buy for you.  It is a great addition to your beauty and cleaning arsenal.
