Whenever I’m going on holiday, the week running up to leaving becomes almost a mission of holiday prep. If you’re jetting off on holiday, especially to warmer climes, it’s important to get your skin looking as its best. We’re talking applying a rich body lotion from head to toe, using body scrubs to get your skin as smooth and possible and of course hair removal. The removal of body hair is definitely a personal choice, but I personally like to ensure my body hair is always maintained as much as possible and the Wilkinson Sword Quattro for Women Bikini Razor makes that a lot easier.
I’ve tried many different hair removal techniques and nothing gives such instant, quick and easy results as shaving. For me shaving is an essential part of my beauty regime, and there’s nothing better than the feeling of freshly shaven leg. Plus if you’re going to be wearing swimwear whilst you’re away, you’re going to want to ensure your bikini line in check. The new Wilkinson Sword Quattro for Women Bikini Razor really is genius as it combines your typical, high quality Wilkinson Sword women’s razor on one end and then you get a very handy bikini trimmer on the other.
I have a couple of bikini trimmers and let me tell you, they were pretty pricey so to be able to get a razor and bikini trimmer all in one for just £10 is fantastic. If you haven’t already, I really recommend downloading the free Shopmium app on your phone as you’ll be able to get the Wilkinson Sword Quattro for Women Bikini Razor on special offer, making it even better value for money.
Inside the box you get a handy holder with suction pads so you can attach it to your bathroom tiles, and this means any water on the razor after use will drip away to keep the blades in the best condition possible. As far as razor holders go, this is a really decent one where you can slot the bikini trimmer section into the base. The box even comes with a battery so you can use your Wilkinson Sword Quattro for Women Bikini Razor straight from the box and it’s extremely quick and easy to set up; you literally unscrew the top half, slip the battery inside and twist the two pieces together and you’re done. Just like all Wilkinson Sword razors, the razor section comes with a plastic guard to protect the blades which is perfect for slipping inside your suitcase or toiletry bag.
What I love the most about this product is that it allows you to use the razor end for your legs and underarms, and then you just have to twist it round and you can use the trimmer on your bikini line. You don’t need to take two separate products with you or worry about taking chargers or cables, as it’s powered by just one AAA battery. This is such a clever idea and it means it’s even quicker to tackle unwanted hair.
The razor end features four wire wrapped blades to protect the skin from irritation within a pivoting head, meaning it moves with the contours of the skin. Surrounding the blades there are two conditioning strips with aloe and vitamin E to leave the skin soft and smooth, and they help the razor to glide over the skin. I have very sensitive skin and sometimes razors can leave my skin looking very red and inflamed which is definitely not what I want when I’m wearing a bikini. However that’s not the case with this razor as the glide strips do a great job at looking after the skin.
The bikini trimmer is waterproof which again is genius as you can use it in the shower which is so much more convenient. The trimmer amazingly comes with three different length settings which isn’t something I expected for such an affordable product, especially as most standalone women’s razors are £9-£12 and that’s without the bikini trimmer included. It’s very easy to change the length settings, and the trimmer is protected by a comb so you don’t have to worry about nicks. Wilkinson’s Sword really have thought about everything with this handy two in one razor and bikini trimmer, and it’s just perfect for taking away with you this summer.
