A few years back, leaving our delicate bikini lines to anyone but the most highly skilled professionals was out of the question. Now, in these anything-to-save-a-dollar days, it's razors up. We're even going DIY down there. Luckily, there are some handy tools to help us through our at-home endeavors. We took two for a test drive.
Contender 1: Bliss Spa's Bikini Perfect Deluxe Spa Edition Razor Set ($50)
Bliss' Philips-branded set sure does have all the bells and whistles—which is a pro and a con. There are six interchangeable razor heads, so every shaping and shaving need, from bikini line to brows, is taken care of. But we can't help but feel that the kit could be a few dollars cheaper if it didn't include unnecessary extras like trial-sized tubes of body butter and scrub.
Contender 2: Schick Quattro Trim Style Razor ($13)
Once the razor industry realized that adding a sixth, seventh, or eighth blade would be ludicrous, brands like Schick started throwing in other enticing extras, like a battery-powered bikini line trimmer. The trimmer end isn't going to help anyone get the Brazilian look, but it does its job in the shaping department, with the help of three different guard settings.
The Verdict: If we're only considering bikini line benefits, it's Bliss by a hair. There's just nothing that little rechargeable gizmo can't do. But if we throw value and overall performance into the mix, it's hard to beat a tool like Schick that can take care of your legs and your bikini line for a quarter of the price.
