Summertime means swimsuit season, which means you may want to clean up stray hairs that poke out of your bikini line. There are plenty of different hair removal options at your disposal — waxing, sugaring, epilating, even lasering — but good ol’ fashioned shaving or trimming is typically the most accessible (and least intimidating!) method.
The best shave really comes down to the tool you’re using and how you’re using it. The Good Housekeeping Institute Beauty Lab has tested all kinds of hair removers, from waxes to razors, and solicited unbiased feedback from a panel of testers all over the nation to find the best of the best. While we’ve never tested bikini trimmers specifically, we’ve rounded up the best picks based on top ratings, vetted by our experts who know everything about body hair removal.
