Product Review: Schick Quattro for Women Trimstyle Sensitive

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Schick Quattro for Women
Name: : TrimStyle Sensitive
Size: n/a
Price: approx. $12.99 CAD

So we are officially in the midst of summer (finally) here in Canada and that means bare legs and arms and time for some serious hair removal products!

Suziesaurus has already done some reviews on some Nair products, but what if you prefer less chemicals and want some new shaving options?

How about the Schick Quattro for Women TrimStyle Sensitive shaver?

This 2-in-1 shaver features four blades with a hypo-allergenic aloe formula moisturizing strip on one end. On the other end, there's a waterproof trimmer with four adjustable trimming lengths.

You can buy this shaver/trimmer at drug, mass and grocery retailers across Canada.

To Purr About:
- shower safe trimmer
- nice, thick, rubbery handle is easy to grip
- razor is very reactive and the head moves easily with the slightest pressure
- very handy to have both products in one
- holder makes it easy to leave in the shower
- good, solid weight to it

Claws Out:
- not really used to trimming my bikini line

Final Comments:
This is an ideal product for those that want to maintain their bikini line at home. The trimmer and shaver system is waterproof and great to have in the shower. It comes with a battery that goes into a tight compartment within the handle.

I love the weight and grip on the handle - the heaviness of it makes it easy to manage and and rubbery grip means you have a good hold on it even when your hands are soapy and wet.

However, I'm not used to using a trimmer, so it took a while to get used to. Once I got the hang of it, I found it pretty easy to use. The cap adjusts so you can adjust the trim level.

The shaver is the high-quality Quattro shaver which gives a really close shave (four blades - how can you miss?) and the moisturizing strip helps keep razor burn to a minimum.

For those that would like to be able to control their trim and shave, this is a great product to have in your shower.

I'd better try this for my bikini line... I'm kinda scared to wax them. Have you tried waxing? If you do, is it painful?

Hi Reena!

I used to wax my bikini line all the time, and yeah, it's pretty painful! But the results are so much better than shaving - you get a much smoother result, plus it lasts longer. The only thing is that you have to wait for the hair to grow. in between wax sessions.

If you do go for waxing, some tips include finding someone you're comfortable with, taking a couple of Advil about an hour beforehand (helps with the pain and the swelling) and don't wear clothing that's too tight (it'll rub too much afterwards).

I only stopped because it was getting too expensive!
