I love shaving my bikini line, said no one ever. And that’s how the product testing began. So, in order to find the best bikini trimmer, we had a few emotional meltdowns and eventually got to work. All that matters is the end goal, we kept telling ourselves, between the nicks and the razor burns.
And we have to admit, it was worth it. We discovered some pretty amazing trimmers that we now wonder how we ever lived without. And the timing couldn’t be more perfect because summer has just sprung.
So, what were we looking for in the ultimate bikini trimmer? The obvious of course, such as, smooth and silky skin and a close shave. We also looked at other aspects though. Such as, ease of use, how quickly the hair grew back, portability and variability for customization.
And we didn’t just review women’s trimmers, we also reviewed our counterparts. Men’s razors tend to be more durable and allow for a closer shave. So, don’t be surprised if we included a couple in our list.
Best Bikini Trimmer
Best Bikini Trimmer
Panasonic Progressions Bikini Shaper & Trimmer
This Panasonic Bikini Trimmer will give you a super close shave without compromising the skin. Specifically because it comes with a hypoallergenic bikini razor blade that will protect the sensitive bikini areas.
It is designed with an angled trimmer head to help cut and remove unwanted hair in hard to reach places. And the angle conforms to your body in the not so hard to reach areas. Again, making this trimmer desirable for sensitive areas. And for added comfort, it has an adjustable 5-position guide to protect areas from direct contact while having the ability to choose variable hair lengths.
The sharp, stainless-steel trimmer blade will work for every hair type, from coarse to fine. And the round tips help avoid unsightly and often painful razor bumps.
The Panasonic Progressions Bikini Shaper & Trimmer is portable and convenient. It’s less than an inch-and-a-half wide and weighs only mere ounces. It is also battery-powered (although you must buy those separately) which will provide up to 45 minutes of continuous trimming.
So, how did this rate with the women at FHL? Although we couldn’t unanimously decide on a favorite, this one got the most votes for best bikini trimmer. We did all agree, however, that this trimmer is extremely easy to use, it’s comfortable and it gives a close shave without disrupting the skin. And the easy, 5-position-guide was perhaps our favorite feature for the promotion of individuality.
Last but not least, the price is right. 🙂
Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7100
This is one of the men’s shavers that made the cut. The Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7100 is made for a man but works amazing on women. Especially if you are a woman with courser hair or maintain your privates irregularly and need something heavy duty.
The dual side will allow you to shave without the hassle of switching attachments in the middle of this critical job. And the Philips Norelco is a wet or dry device so it gives you the freedom to use it in the shower or on dry land.
It has a built-in trimming comb on one side with 5 adjustable length settings, while the reverse side will allow for an ultra close shave. The 3-D pivoting head will glide along the contours to get those hard to reach areas and allow for an even closer shave.
And the 3-D pivoting head along with the rounded blades and hypoallergenic materials will give you less irritation. So this is definitely suitable for those with sensitivities or for those that are prone to razor bumps.
The Norelco is cordless and rechargeable, so you don’t have to worry about replacement batteries. The battery will provide up to 50 minutes of cordless use after a 1 hour charge, simply place it on the stand and an hour later you’re ready to go.
The blades will self-sharpen, however, you will want to replace the shaving heads every 12 months or so, depending on use. And because these blades self-sharpen, there is no need for additional maintenance or lubrication.
So, how did this pass our test? This has to be the most comfortable shaver to hold. It has contoured rubber sides that allow for a secure grip and prevents slippage. The Norelco gives an extremely close shave, and like we mentioned previously, it’s perfect for those of us with thicker hair.
We did notice a couple of pulls when using this razor dry. However, when we softened our skin with water, it allowed for a much smoother and pull-free shave.
Overall, we loved the smoothness and the softness this trimmer left us with. And this is definitely the best bikini trimmer for those that need something heavy-duty.
Styles II Mini Lady Shaver
This is perhaps the best bikini trimmer for those with sensitive skin and those who can’t seem to find a trimmer that doesn’t nick and pull.
The Styles II Mini Lady Shaver is made of nickel-free, hypoallergenic stainless steel blades and foil to help prevent irrigation and unsightly razor bumps.
The head of the razor offers a 3-n-1 experience with a foil head and two trimmers on either side. The foil head is rounded to glide across your curves easily and effortlessly.
This trimmer charges via USB port and is extremely compact. And it has an easy flip-top to protect the blades when not in use and a mesh pouch for travel. To use this bikini trimmer, you just push a button and you’re all set to go. No attachments, no battery replacement, just charge and you will receive up to 30 minutes of shave time.
So, how well did the Styles II Mini Lady Shaver pass our test? Like we mentioned before, this is the best bikini trimmer for those with sensitive skin. However, it gets huge marks from us for allowing a surprisingly close shave while being extremely gentle. And for being so small, it has an enormous amount of power.
But, it doesn’t allow for much creativity down there and wouldn’t be desirable for someone who wants to trim up their hair to a particular length. However, this would be perfect for someone who likes a clean shave or someone who just wants to trim up their bikini line. It also works well for armpits, legs and so on.
The other aspect you may want to consider is this trimmer takes roughly 8-10 hours to charge for just 30 minutes of use. And because we can’t always be 100% on top things, you don’t want to be without any power in a dire situation. Something to think about.
Philips Bikini Trimmer
The Philips Bikini Trimmer is a good option for those with fine hair and for those who would consider themselves low-maintenance down there.
The blade will precisely trim the hair down to 0.5 mm in length and the 2 click-on combs will enable you to cut the hair in different lengths.
The rounded teeth on the blade will give protection and prevent razor burns while the ergonomic design of the device allows for easy maneuvering.
This bikini trimmer is capable of being used in wet or dry situations and is battery-operated via AA batteries.
Our final take with this bikini trimmer is it isn’t ideal for hairy situations. So, if you’re dealing with a forest, you may want to check out some of the other options. However, if you have very little hair to deal with in the first place, this is a great choice.
The Philips Bikini Trimmer is easy to use, highly portable and has a great design that feels natural and will reach just about anywhere. And it gives a great shave with no cuts or nicks reported from anyone at FHL.
Betevo Bikini Trimmer
This bikini trimmer is a wet or dry bikini trimming machine that will give you more flexibility in and out of the shower.
It comes with a stainless steel, hypoallergenic blade which will allow you to achieve a close shave, while the the interchangeable heads will give you some flexibility while shaving. The first attachment, the bikini head, is narrow and will cut long hair and is to be used for more intricate detailing while the shaver head is perfect for after-shave touch ups.
The Betevo Bikini Trimmer also comes with a length guide to help ensure less irritation and help you achieve the desirable length of hair.
This bikini trimmer is cord-free and battery-operated, making it ideal for travel. And, for the extra convenience, there are 2 AA batteries included upon purchase. However, the company recommends you switch to brand name batteries if you find the trimmer not powerful enough.
Finally, our two cents. We love this trimmer. It gives a close, comfortable and smooth shave without the cuts and nicks. It’s also easy to use and we love the fact you can use it in or out of the shower.
It has a great angle to the head which allowed us to reach just about anywhere. Additionally, it’s light, it’s portable and ideal for travel.
Bare It All Shaver Personal Shaver Razor and Built-In Trimmer
Ok, we have to admit, this trimmer weirded us out so much that a couple of staff members opted out of the testing phase. For the ones that persevered, we are glad we did. Because some of us are saying this is the best bikini trimmer ever.
And, believe it or not, this shaver is made specifically for that particular region. It will also work with the legs, face, armpits, etc.
This is a foil head type of razor. Which means it has more laser etched cutting holes than your typical electric razor. This will not only give you a more complete shave, but a faster one as well.
The rotary designed head will conform to your body and allow you to maneuver into the curves of your body. The foil is hypoallergenic and will protect against itch, rash, bumps or ingrown hair.
When using a foil razor, you will need to use a different shave technique. And each individual will find different techniques that work for them. So be sure to follow the instructions closely to avoid any pitfalls that can happen when using one improperly.
Also, the foil razor can only be used on stubble and is not intended for longer hair. However, the Bare It All Shaver comes with a built in trimmer if things have gotten out of hand.
Finally, this razor is rechargeable with 60 minutes of shave time between charges. The charging is simple, just plug the actual device into the wall and you’ll be ready to go a little while later. It comes complete with an auto shutoff to prevent battery damage and it features universal voltage, which means you can take this anywhere in the world. In addition, the Bare It All Shaver gives you a lifetime of at least 500 hours while other razors give around 200 hours.
And the final analysis is, this is the best bikini trimmer in the close shave category. It allowed an extra day or two of hair-free, worry-free existence. It was comfortable to use and after perfecting our technique, it only got better.
We do recommend this for those who prefer to completely rid the hair down there or for those just focusing on the bikini line. If you want to trim the hairs a certain length, this unfortunately does not have that option.
