Hedge-trimmer for my Lady Garden

(14 Posts)

All these current threads about 'gardening' remind me that I need a new shaver. Haven't a clue what to get, though.

I want:
Wet-and-dry shaving
I'm more of a trimmer than a shaver, so it needs a good trimming blade (or selection)
OTOH I occasionally shave underarms but because I have really sensitive skin, I need a very gentle one.

An recommendations?

Um. I have a Braun (called, I think, silk and soft?) which is pretty good though I'm not sure about the underarms as I use a razor there. But am watching with interest as blasted dh has just chucked out the recharging part.

Is there no Gadget Guru who can guide us?

The Phillips bikini one is fab, and has all the features op would like. It also has a stencil kit - cats bum mouth!

I just have a bog standard Ladyshave but it does all those things. No stencils though!

Stencil kit?

Yes, you can have an arrow, a heart, a 'strip' and others I can't remember. I have enough trouble getting to it to do a tidy up, never mind faffing about with designer mingery!

I think I'd have it pointing upwards.

I have the Phillips one. Stencils went straight in the bin!

I have a Remington Trim & Shape. It didn't come with stencils.

Could I stencil my underarms with it?
