Schick Quattro for Women Trimstyle

Best bikini shaver

Pros
  • Convenient
  • Inexpensive trimmer
  • No razor burn, irritation
Cons
  • Very noisy
  • Spotty motor quality
  • Trimmer catches hair, painful

Bottom line

The Schick Quattro for Women Trimstyle's four-blade razor is overshadowed by the battery-powered bikini-line trimmer built into its handle. Although best used for maintenance, users say the Trimstyle's height-adjustable trimmer provides quick, tidy grooming. On the downside it's very noisy, and the motor's life span is inconsistent among reviewers.

Performance

All about the trimmer. The Schick Quattro for Women Trimstyle took the popular four-bladed Quattro razor to the next level by adding a waterproof, motorized bikini trimmer in the handle. The trimmer -- best used to trim hair short -- has three length settings and a removable guard.

The trimmer is a huge hit with reviewers, despite the somewhat poor motor quality. One Drugstore.com reviewer says, "I really like how safe trimming is" with the Trimstyle. The razor draws some mixed, but mostly positive, reviews; most reviewers say it gives a close, clean shave without razor burn. It also ranks near the top for shaving performance and skin protection in tests carried out by Australia's Choice magazine.

Ease of use

Not a lifelong product. Users say to expect a best-case life span measured in months, not years, but that this trimmer's well worth the cost of replacing it. When they do work, both the trimmer and the razor itself are easy to hold and maneuver. The trimmer's so noisy, though, that some women run water or blast music to obscure its buzz.

Expect a monthly cost of about $6 if you replace the Quattro Trimstyle's razor cartridges twice a month, or $72 per year. Some users warn that the blades go dull quickly, so you may need to replace them more often.
