I purchased this as a bikini area trimmer. For that basic chore, it worked well enough. It's a bit on the side of lower quality, due to it's lighter, cheaper plastic construction, but for the price that's ok. I did not subtract a star for that alone, though others might see it as a problem. I subtracted one star though, because for me personally, it just was not the best trimmer. I have had a gastric bypass, lost a lot of weight, and have a lot of loose skin. *Everywhere* including "down there". So that loose skin caused me a bit of a problem with the level of smoothness I was able to achieve with this particular trimmer. I think it's possible that if you do not have a problem like this, despite anything else, you may be able to get a much smoother result than myself.
