A dame like me can thump keys about products and looks til the emus come home, (this is even more rare than cows because emus very rarely return home) but sometimes she needs to remind her delightful and extremely good looking readers about the tools of consequence in beauty and grooming.
Like these three, which I use with great frequency and enthusiasm:
1. The Clio bikini trimmer, $8. (Buy from Target.)
The best $8 a girl can spend, this pen-sized trimmer is just WONDERFUL. I have a strange panicky attachment to it now, because it has been such a blessing for someone who, weirdly, doesn’t enjoy hot wax being poured and then ripped off her ladygarden very much, and who travels a lot and forgets to make wax appointments before said travel. I use it to ‘clean up’ that area nicely and quickly, (there is no pain and no itchy ‘shaving’ grow back) and also to get rid of the interesting hairs that like to sprout on the tops of my toes.
They will tell you that you can also use it on your eyebrows (SHRIEK!) and face (GASP!) but as my caps lock and exclamation points suggest, I don’t really recommend that. What I DO recommend, is cracking it out for a tidy up (and even a bit of shape if you’re confident) on your bikini area. I even think if you have a bit of laser hair removal on the top and sides, you could use this for tidy-ups and skip waxing forevermore. Imagine that.
2. The Clarisonic Mia, $149
