So, I got a bit sidetracked with my Shower Shakeup Week last week. Work, baby and family stuff got in the way, so the second part of the week will be this week (and maybe a bit next week as well). Really, it’s more of a very extended week.
Anyways, today I’m breaking out of my typical Gillette Venus rut to try out the Schick Quattro Trim Style. I’ve tried out the Schick Quattro in the past. I did have great results with this 4 bladed razor.
I prefer the Venus as my “normal” razor only because the blades are more readily available in my area. I swear that Quattro blades are frequently in short supply at my normal shopping locations like Target, and the availability of Venus at my Sam’s Club was the tipping point. However, recently I haven’t been very happy with the Venus. My shave hasn’t been quite as smooth, and surely the fact that Sam’s Club version of the Venus blades were the regular old 3 bladed version meant I could do better?
First, regarding the actual razor part of this contraption. There are 4 blades in a pretty heavy duty head. It is pretty streamlined and overall it does a great job. It is small and agile enough to get pretty much anywhere without issue. The whole thing is pretty heavy though with the trimmer on the other end, and the handle is definitely thicker than other razors. So, it does take a little getting used to when using the Trim Style.
What’s the deal with the trimmer part? First, check out this video from Chick Advisor about the Trim Style. I found the whole thing to be pretty amusing.
So yes, that other end is for trimming down there. It is run off of AAA batteries, and the entire unit is waterproof so you can still use it in the shower. Simply hit the on button and go to it. The trimmer adjusts to 3 different lengths by moving/removing the comb, though I haven’t really figured out how to do this. It does work very well and is definitely faster than many other methods of trimming. It’s nice to have a unit that’s just always in the shower, ready for use. Perfect for bikini season!
