Femme Fatale Wet and Dry Bikini Trimmer
Advantages: Rechargeable, charge lasts a decent time, close shave, no cuts or nicks, adjustable blades
Disadvantages: None for me
I've had this bikini trimmer for years, and to be honest I'd kind of forgotten I had it after it had been stored away somewhere during many house moves. I've just recently discovered it again, got it charged up, and am now using it in place of razors which can sometimes cause irritation in more sensitive areas. It was a while ago when I bought it, but I know it was from Boots, and it cost around £25 at the time. Obviously these days we have the benefit of the internet to be able to search for cheaper options.
The trimmer is rechargeable, so it has an adaptor which gets plugged into the mains and plugged into the base of the trimmer to charge it up. This means you don't have to use it with a wire attached to it, which would be rather tricky and make precision somewhat difficult. It has a base which you can stand it on, although personally I'm not sure why anyone would ever want to leave a personal item like this on display, inviting awkward questions from younger visitors who are of an age where they ask "Mummy what's that" about EVERYTHING they see! Call me a prude, but I'd much rather just put things like this in a drawer out of sight.
Anyway, rant over! The trimmer has detachable blades, and a comb attachment which basically determines how much hair you're wishing to trim. There are five options, ranging from a bit of a tidy up, to full on baldness, so be careful and do a test patch before you get carried away and end up with an unintentional Brazilian! The trimmer is easy enough to use, you simply set the blade to the level you require, and press the button on the side to turn it on. It makes a bit of noise but isn't too loud, much like a man's razor. You can use it either dry or in the shower, but I prefer to use it out of the shower because I find the water distracting and puts me off so I end up being less precise. I did wonder whether it might be a bit sore on the skin if it was used dry, but it's never caused me any problems, and doesn't leave those horrible nasty red lumps that you get from shaving sometimes. It gives a really close shave and is much easier to use without any nicks or cuts.
The charge on the razor lasts for a good while, it's never run out when I've been using it, although I do make sure I recharge it as soon as I'm finished otherwise it's annoying when you pick it up next time and it fizzles out straight away because you forgot to charge it. I doubt it needs charging this often, but I like to be sure.
The trimmer came with a comb to clean the blades, the base for it to sit in, a charger, and some cutting guides. Now, the cutting guides went straight in the bin, but I shall tell you about them anyway. They give you five shapes, as you can see from the picture, and these are intended for the more fun-minded people who wish to perform some kind of hedge cutting shaping on their intimate area. I mean, seriously, I know I'm showing my prudish side again, but who, WHO, would ever shave an arrow into their pubic area?! But anyway, if you're into this kind of thing, you can have a heart, triangle, rectangle, arrow or square cut into your lady area.
All in all, this is an excellent lady trimmer, which I would highly recommend.
