Those plugs are the standard used in Switzerland and there is another version with a third offset centre prong which is for ground or earth.

Most of the adapters I see on sale in EU accept them.

I looked up "Babyliss Men" on Google and it looks like it's a French based company that sells cosmetic products (predominately shaving products but there's other products as well).

By the looks of it, this type of plugs looks larger. Since it's a French company, I would assume that it's a Type E plug, which the hot and neutral prongs look slightly larger than the Type B which is another European plug. Type E looks exactly the same as a Type F but if this was a French product, Type E would be the case. Therefore, you can get either Type F or Type E adapters.

Also, I can't see exactly what the power rating on that adapter but it looks like it says its voltage compatibility is from 100v to 240v. France uses 230v for their mains.

Look on Wikipedia about mains and plug type.
