How did we select our products?
For this comparison of the best bikini trimmers, we have taken care to study several criteria:
When buying your bikini trimmer, pay particular attention to the accessories provided. Depending on the models of the different brands, there are more or less different combs for the height of the mowing.
If you want to make a full bikini, choose a minimum height of less than 0.5mm. On the other hand, if you simply want to shorten your hair, choose a hoof between 3 and 5mm.
Certain areas of the bikini line are sometimes difficult to access, which is why ergonomics and the grip of the device is an important criterion. All of the mowers presented above have the advantage of being cordless. No need to turn the machine around for easy access to the area you want to mow.
Supply Mode :
Generally, there are two kinds of operation, by battery or by recharging. If you travel a lot and want to take your mower with you, use battery power. Indeed, the sockets are not the same depending on the country, you may have a bad surprise when you want to recharge your mower. Note also that battery power is more expensive than battery recharging power.
As explained previously, the autonomy of your mower will depend on its power supply mode, on battery or on battery. Depending on the model, autonomy generally varies between 30 and 120 minutes.
What are the advantages of the bikini trimmer?
For the cozier, the bikini trimmer is clearly the best option since its use is painless. Indeed, we do not epilate (so we do not tear the bulb of the hair), but we now. It is also a much less irritating method than razor blades and thus prevents the formation of small buttons.
If you also use another hair removal method (in addition to the trimmer), it is also very useful to do a touch-up between two appointments with the beautician for example.
Another strong point is that it can also be used regardless of the condition of the jersey. With the comb that we adjust on the blades, we can then thin out the area before attacking the contours.
And its drawbacks?
As with a regular razor, the hairs will tend to grow back rather coarse over time. The best thing is to combine the bikini trimmer with another hair removal method to avoid altering the texture and thickness of your hair too much. Also, the skin will not be as smooth as it can be after waxing.
Our advice and questions
How to use your bikini trimmer properly?
The first thing to do is to prepare your skin for mowing. We, therefore, recommend that you perform a scrub the day before your epilation. Be sure to use a gentle scrub with fine grains, as this is a very sensitive area.
If your hair is long enough, start by shortening it with a comb of the height of your choice. Then, if you want to closely trim the contours of your bikini line, remove the comb and use only the shaving head. If you prefer a full jersey, it is also quite possible with the cutting head and still without a hoof.
Finally, the golden rule: always mow against the direction of hair growth, always! You can also take a shower or simply moisten the area before going on your mower. Indeed, mowing is often easier on wet hair.
Finish with the application of a specific aftershave or a soothing cream.
How to slow down hair regrowth?
Tigernut oil combined with sage essential oil is a natural method against hair regrowth. Just apply a few drops of the mixture to your skin 30 minutes after your epilation. Of course, if it is on the bikini line, pay attention to the mucous membranes and apply it only to the pubis.
In order to avoid ingrown hairs and make the next epilation easier, consider exfoliating the skin once a week. This will unclog the pores in order to let the hair out without a problem. Once again, we pay attention to our private parts and we only erase the public area.
How to maintain your bikini trimmer?
To keep your device in good condition for as long as possible, it is important to clean it after each use. If your mower is waterproof, rinse it under running water to remove any remaining clipped hair. Otherwise, all devices are usually sold with a small cleaning brush that allows you to remove hairs stuck in the shaving foil. It is also possible to disinfect your mower with a little hydrogen peroxide.
Can a bikini trimmer be used on all types of hair?
A bikini trimmer is an option that is suitable for all women and regardless of the type of hair. Depending on your hairiness, more or less important, we recommend that you shorten your hair using a cutting shoe before proceeding to close mowing.
