Nose/Ear/Eyebrows trimmer: Great multifunctional trimmer for an excellent price. Using it for many years now. Buy it on Amazon
Dyson V10 Absolute: I have the Dyson V8 cordless vacuum cleaner. It’s a wonderful product and I use it almost every day. If I would buy it again, I would probably the V10, because the battery lasts longer and doesn’t need to be replaced every few years (see comparison on YouTube). Buy it on Amazon
