Having smooth hairless skin is always a never ending pursue for majority of the women. It goes without saying that it is extremely important to have the right tool for the job, especially when you want to do the deed at the bikini line, the ‘small space’ in the area makes it tricky for a smooth navigation. Hence, you need a good bikini trimmer, the kind of shaving tool that are designed specially to do the job, better than a regular razor.
Of course, to make the whole process a lot easier, you can do the following tips to prep the skin before the routine:
Soften the skin beforehand with warm water and scrub the skin to exfoliate dead skin cells for a smooth shave and prep the skin with a good layer of shaving cream – this product is essential as the cream creates a barrier between the blade and the skin, preventing you from ingrown hairs and irritation to the skin.
Without further ado, let’s review bikini trimmers that made into this list, to help you decide which one is suitable for your shaving routine.
1. Schick Hydro Silk TrimStyle Moisturizing Razor for Women with Bikini Trimmer
One of the top bikini trimmers bought in Amazon, the dual-ended Schick Hydro Silk Trimstyle is a versatile razor that will cover all of your shaving needs from full grooming to a light touch up anywhere on your body (and of course, for your bikini line as well) . This shaver is super moisturizing to minimize irritation to your skin, while the five curve-sensing blade glides smoothly to give you a close shave.
What we love is the razor is designed to cover all shaving routine, body shape, and being a smooth shaver to the skin, thanks to an adjustable comb that you can adjust in four setting to trim at different length, as well as hypoallergenic nourishing serum (Water-Activated Hydra-Boost serum) to restore moisture levels in the skin up to two hours.
And a surprising feature, this razor is also waterproof which means that the product will last a long time despite being used under the shower (after all, that’s when we usually shave and left it on the shelves in the bathroom) and you can replace the razor head with refills after the blade is no longer sharp as it used to be.
Use AAA batteries.
2. Panasonic Electric Shaver for Women, ES2216PC, Close Curves Electronic Shaver, 4-Blade Cordless Electric Razor with Bikini Attachment
Another all-in-one shaver that you can use to for entire body, Panasonic Electric Shaver for Women comes with a curved shape to minimize nicks while giving you a close shave, despite being a wider razor compared to other models listed in this review. A good point as this means you don’t have to carry a number of razors to use especially during travel.
We love that this razor is designed to be waterproof and hypoallergenic which means you can use it while in the shower without worry and this product is suitable for all skin types including sensitive ones (a major point for if you have this type of skin, as using a razor can strip out the natural oils on your skin, making them raw and irritated). And yes, so waterproof this thing is that you can shave the legs while in a bath no problemo.

Another big point is the razor is rechargeable (using AC 120V), meaning there’s no need to think about stocking up some batteries as a backup – just recharge it again for a couple of minutes to continue the routine!
The device can also be completely submerged, so if you feel like shaving your legs in the bath, you absolutely can. While this is a much wider razor than other bikini trimmers, it has a few key features that puts it leagues above the rest; it comes with four floating blades/foils, which means pivoting into the delicate curves of the bikini line will be no problem.
3. Gillette Venus Bikini Precision Women’s Trimmer
The sleek-looking Gillette Venus Bikini Precision Women’s Trimme electric trimmer is designed to have a tiny head but don’t let that put you off as the head can handle the shaving routine effortlessly; notably that you can choose the amount of hair to remove (along with the shape that you want) with two 5mm plastic comb as attachments.
This razor is very slim, compact and has a nice weight to it that you can hold and control the razor smoothly while shaving across the skin. The handle is easy to grip and didn’t get slip while using under a shower. And we love that the overall design of this razor features a 90-degree angle so you can have a max visibility and maneuvering the handle with ease.
The trimmer runs in AA battery and you can use it for both wet and dry setting. The downside is the comb attachment is a clip-on style that there’s a potential of misplacing it. And yes, this is a trimmer that can trim the hair and not for shaving.
4. Philips Satinelle Prestige Epilator, Wet & Dry Electric Hair Removal, Body Exfoliation and Massage
What’s not to love about this shaver? Philips Satinelle Prestige Epilator is definitely something that you would want to consider as this two-in-one epilator and shaver pretty much covers everything you need in a shaving routine.
The ergonomically designed product comes with 10 pieces to cover all aspects of the routine, providing a close shave from anywhere you need — upper lip, baby hairs, legs, and of course the bikini line — Philips Satinelle covers it all. And surprisingly, it gives you a nice facial massage as well!
Each shaver and epilator comes with its own head – just click on the button to detach the head and swap with other head attachment accordingly. From there, multiple caps can be attached at the top for use – for example, you can use a facial cap attached on top of the epilator head to shave facial hairs.
This shaver-epilator combo is wonderfully sturdy – it can shave multiple types of hair from coarse to fine and comes with multiple speeds according to your needs (tip: slow speed is best for hard-to-reach areas as well as for sensitive skin types, while higher speeds is best to medium-to-thick hair types). And of course, the S-shaped handle that widens at the top (measuring 3 cm across) is a dream to use; it gives you a total handle and control while doing the routine, making it easy to steer and move around providing a full coverage.
And we love that this shaver is rechargeable that you can bring it anywhere in the bathroom, as well as for a light travel without needing to stock up the batteries. There’s even a display at the bottom of the handle to inform you when the device needs to charge.
Overall, Philips Satinelle Prestige Epilator is what you need if you frequently shave and use an epilator for your routine.
5. Panasonic Bikini Shaper and Trimmer for Women ES246AC, Compact
Panasonic Bikini Shaper and Trimmer for Women is one of the top-selling razors and has been one since 2015 and to us that indicated this product is made to last and works good for all types of hair and skin. Indeed, the sturdy-looking trimmer works powerful than it looks.
You can steer and pivot the trimmer at five different points to cover all nook and cranny especially at the bikini line. Especially since the angled trimmer head is rather narrow compared to other models, with widths at only one-inch.
Still, the downside is the razor is only suitable for trimming down hairs; if you’re expecting a product for a clean shave, this model is not for you. Unless you don’t mind a bit by removing the trimmer head that while it gives you a close shave, there’s still a bit of stubble at the skin. And this razor is not intended to use for wet use, despite having a waterproof head which we assume it’s for safety measure.
The product uses a 2 AA batteries (that are not included in the set), comes with a cleaning brush, and a two-year warranty.
6. Braun Silk-épil Bikini Trimmer Electric Shaver, Styler, and Hair Removal Tool for Women, FG1100
Braun Silk-épil Bikini Hair Electric Shaver is a dream to use – the shaver is one of the most popular models in the market and it comes with quite a number of attachments that you can use while shaving.
One of the major point that wins us is this chic razor comes with a precision head that enables you to shave and/or style the hair using templates included in the package – compared to other models listed in this review, only Braun provides such fun attachments. Still, the razor still works as expected and gives you a clean trim after each use, thanks to the T-shaped head for a total control and maneuverability to cover all area without leaving a single hair behind without nicks and bumps, as well as two different combs to use for you to trim the hair at the length that you want.
On the plus side, with it’s precision head feature you can also use this razor to shave facial hair and trim the eyebrows as well.
The downside of such wonderful product is Braun Silk-épil Bikini Hair Electric Shaver. Powered with a single AA battery – keep in mind to have some stock at hand to avoid any embarrassment having the razor stopped midway while doing the routine. And no, this razor is not suitable for wet use.
Come with a two-year warranty.
