No Nicks and Easy To Use
on March 29, 2008
I bought this trimmer after reading a review somewhere else on how the Seiko S-Yard product line was very good in general, and that this item in particular is great because of the unusual shape.
I've had it for a day now and I like it tremendously. Please note that it is a TRIMMER, and not a SHAVER. That said, it trims very close to the skin, so this is not a product to use if you're trying to get a certain length of hair.
For the bikini area, female private parts, and the *ahem* "rear door" it's perfect for me. Shaving always results in itchy stubble growing back and is very difficult to do on that uneven terrain down there. The Shavy Femini has a flat, toothbrush-like head, and is easy to maneuver in tight spots. This trimmer did not nick me even once, even on the most challenging parts of skin. Perfect!
I trim my pubic area for comfort rather than looks, and this trimmer is excellent for that. Start with the area freshly washed (right out of the shower is good -- this is NOT a wet/dry trimmer), make sure it's dry, and dust the area with some kind of baby powder or other talcum-powder-like product to make the going smooth.
It takes one AA battery (included), but I would recommend using rechargeable NIMH or NiCd batteries such as those made by Duracell or Energizer, and not disposable batteries.
