When most women think of grooming they think of having their hair done, manicures, pedicures, plucking the eyebrows, shaving their legs; things like that. But there are also a large percentage of women who include the public area in their regular grooming routine and if you’re one of them, you know how important it is to avoid nicks, cuts and other types of abrasions in such a sensitive area. Many ladies enjoy the look and feel of going bare but many others are simply looking to keep things neat and tidy and for them, the trimming device they select is key in achieving a safe, hygienic result.
The Importance of Using the Right Shaving Instrument
The most common side effects of hair removal in the pubic region are irritation and itching. In many cases, this comes as a result of using dull razors or inappropriate electric shavers. The fact is it’s never a great idea to trim your pubic region using a disposable razor and standard electric razors don’t work either because they’re designed for the wider, flatter surfaces of the face. Epilators are a popular option but due to the way they pull hair from the body they’re not for everyone. Your safest bet is almost always a top-of-the-line bikini trimmer and below we review 5 that we think are the best on the market.
Schick Quattro Trimstyle Razor and Bikini Trimmer:
The Quattro is a great 2-in-1 instrument that lets you trim your target area before engaging the 4 blade razor for a silky smooth shave. Great for traveling, lightweight and comfortable, the Quattro uses a single AAA battery and can be deployed in or out of the shower. The design of the Quattro is elegant and sleek and the pivoting head allows for a perfect finish in even the hardest to reach areas.
There may be other combo trimmer/razors out there that are as good but none that are a better value.
Panasonic ES2216PC Wet/Dry:
Panasonic has a well-deserved reputation for producing high-quality electronic products and their ES2216PC wet/dry shaver is no exception. 2216 is a 2-in-1 shaver/trimmer that features a pivoting head, long-lasting hypoallergenic nickel cutting blades and a convenient, easy to use a pop-up trimmer. The unit is completely immiscible and can be used in the shower or bath or dry with no drop-off in comfort and finish.
The ES2216PC is extremely comfortable to hold, easy to use and yields excellent results.
Philips HP6378 Bikini Trimmer:
The HP6378 is another uber-convenient wet/dry unit that will generate a crisp, smooth bikini line in no time flat. The ultra-sleek design makes it the best looking of the trimmers reviewed here and one of the most versatile since adjusting it to different angles is no hassle regardless of the size of your hands. Like the Panasonic, this is a rechargeable, a feature that has its pros and cons but will never interfere with its effectiveness.
The HP6378 really shines as a trimmer with the precision comb attachment that allows you to trim to 5 different lengths.
Braun FG1100 Bikini Styler:
The Braun FG1100 is another pint-sized bikini trimmer that is convenient and effective at trimming and removing unwanted hair from the bikini area. The FB1100 comes with a pair of cutting heads and 2 combs for close, detailed trimming. The FB1100 is completely portable, powered by a single AAA battery and provides true detailing ability in the most sensitive areas. You’ll achieve a silky smooth finish with no muss or fuss.
The kind of no-nonsense results you expect from Braun at a no-nonsense price.
Conair Satiny Smooth Ladies’ Wet/Dry Rechargeable:
The Conair Satiny Smooth lives up to its name by providing safe, effective, silky smooth results quickly and easily. Bring it into the shower with you or use it dry and achieve the same flawless finish with little effort. The Satiny Smooth is fully rechargeable which is both good and not so good since you have to bring more stuff along when you travel. But you can’t argue with the results, which are spectacular.
The Satiny Smooth is a large piece of equipment, relatively speaking. Much more so than the Braun FG1100. If that’s not an issue for you then you’ll really enjoy this unit.
Leave cuts and irritation behind by using one of these amazing bikini line shavers and restore ease and effectiveness to the grooming of your most sensitive areas.
