Beauty Road Test: The Schick Quattro for Women TrimStyle Does Double Duty
Looking for a way to shave your legs and neaten up your bikini area, all in one go? Look no further than the Schick Quattro for Women Trimstyle razor!
We’ve sung the praises of the Schick Quattro for Women razor here at BettyConfidential before—but Bettys? We’ve got a new one for you: The Schick Quattro for Women TrimStyle ($10.99, drugstores nationwide). Since PJ laid claim to the first Quattro that ended up in our mailbox, I got to be the lucky Betty editor to test out this high-tech wonder—and believe you me, Bettys, it is EPIC. Looking for a tool you can use to shave your legs and handle assorted other pieces of body hair maintenance, all in one go? Look no further!
The Schick Quattro TrimStyle boasts the same features of the original Quattro: Two conditioning strips and four ultra-thin blades. The razor cartridges themselves are a little smaller than what I’m used to (through the clever use of deductive logic, I’m sure you know which razor I habitually use), which meant that in practice, I had to go a little slower than I normally do; but on the plus side, I’m happy to say that the Quattro TrimStyle delivers the same supersmooth shave that the regular Quattro does. Not only that, but it’s close enough that you barely even notice any stubble if you skip a day—because really, who has the time to shave every single day?
But here’s what makes the Quattro TrimStyle REALLY special: The other end comes equipped with a waterproof, battery-powered trimmer for your bikini area, if that’s the way you like to keep things down south. I know, I know: A beard trimmer for your ladybits? Batteries in the shower? Are you crazy? I was skeptical, too. But you know what? It sure as heck beats going in with pair of scissors! There’s an adjustable comb with three settings that allows you to control your desired hair length; the comb also detaches for both easy cleaning and an even closer trim.
Note that the trimmer is just that—a trimmer—so if what you’re looking for is a super smooth shave down there, this isn’t quite the way to get it. But if all you require is a quick and easy way to keep your ladybits groomed, the Quattro TrimStyle will get the job done and then some. I haven’t nicked myself or electrocuted myself, either, and since I’m a klutz and a half, you can rest easy knowing that it’s so safe, it’s Lucia-proof. Pick one up at drugstores nationwide and experience it for yourself!
