Philips Bikini Genie Bikini Hair Trimmer Review, Price & Buy Online India
For people like me, a parlor visit is the bane of my existence. First you go and wait forever for your turn while the parlor lady decides that a phone call is more important than the ten people waiting for their services. Once, when you finally get to your turn and have finished reading all the out dated magazines on the coffee table, the woman decides that she will pay the least amount of attention to your hair removal and insists that the tufts of hair you see left behind are just the imagination of your mind. No thank you, not anymore.
For a really long time now, I’ve been doing my own epilation at home. Philips comes up with genius products for hair removal like the Philips Satinelle Epilator. The one product though that has literally been my best investment ever is the Philips Bikini Genie Bikini Trimmer. I’m a sissy when it comes to pain and just the thought of waxing down there scares the bejesus out of me. #PhilipsBeauty to the rescue which lets you #BeYourOwnStylist!

Packaging and Design
The Philips Bikini Genie comes in a stylish purple cardboard pack which mentions the product details, illustrates the usage and also comes with a little booklet explaining all the attachments and other details. Like most Philips tools, this too comes with a pouch to help you store the attachments since I’m sure many of us would anyway get rid of the carton.
The Philips Bikini Genie Trimmer is a very pretty purple-pink tool which looks like a magic wand to my eyes, since it performs just like one 😀 It looks very cute and classy sitting on my bathroom slab. The handle is ergonomic and does not slip through your hand while using it.

The head is slightly tapered and shaped so that you can reach all areas to trim the hair effectively.The Bikini Genie Bikini Trimmer comes with a base, a trimming head with rounded ends on the blade so there is no danger of nicking yourself, a comb for retaining a length of 4mm precisely and a close shaver for a hair free trim. It runs on a single AA Battery, one is provided with the product upon purchase.
I have been using the Philips Bikini Genie for almost two years now (I had the older floral print version before this one) and surprisingly the first battery is still going strong for me. I have never used the comb attachment because I prefer a close shave. I almost always use the trimmer attachment followed by the close shave attachment and it works wonderfully for me.
Before starting your trim, make sure you’ve either had a bath or have cleaned your delicate area. If you prefer having a 4mm length, attach the pink comb to the trimming head and proceed to trim off the hair. The handle is so designed that it takes minimum effort on your part to trim all the hair off. If you prefer shorter hair, take off the comb and use the trimmer as it is. It might feel like you would end up cutting/nicking yourself but rest assured that is never going to happen. For a close shave, once you’ve done using the trimmer swap out the head with the close shaver and experience hair freedom. Why do I call it freedom? Well you really have to do it to experience it! Its not only much more hygienic but feels very clean and you sort of feel more feminine.
To clean the product, just detach the head and run it under water. That’s it. No fuss cleaning too. The biggest doubt a person might have is, will the hair grow back thicker or will it grow back harsher. Absolutely not! The hair does not grow back thicker, it just grows back as it was originally. There is minimum discomfort while the hair grows back and the time taken also ranges from a week to a few weeks. I’m not very nit-picky about the time lapse and only need to use the trimmer once a month to keep myself well groomed.
Philips Bikini Genie is the perfect alternative to bikini/ brazilian waxing and I for one cannot bear to go through all that pain. And yes ladies, waxing down there DEFINITELY hurts. This is the perfect hair trimmer to get rid of hair on your bikini line and flaunt your swimsuits without a worry!

HBM Recommendation: If you’re like me and want a painless solution to the bikini line hair then this is the product for you. I have found that of all the money that I have ever spent in my lifetime for every random thing in this world, the Philips Bikini Genie is the one I will never regret. Ever!!
