How do I use my Philips Bikini Trimmer?

Published on 2021-03-25
The Philips Precision Trimmer is your key to shaping and designing. Some models come with additional attachments that help you shape and style, like a trimming comb and shaving foil. All Philips products consisting of a shaving foil are skin friendly. Philips is not a dermatological authority and cannot give skin, hair, or nail advice on individual cases.

Before using a Philips product with a shaving foil, it is good practice to visually check the grooming device to ensure the shaving foil is still intact. Replace the foil immediately when it is damaged, via our
webshop or your local Consumer Care.  

Some products come with additional attachments to use on sensitive areas, like your pubic region. You can find more information about using these attachments this in your user manual or can contact us.

If you are still unsure of using Philips devices with a shaving foil, please consult your physician or healthcare professional who can examine whether your skin is suitable for this type of grooming device.

Instructions to use

  • You may exfoliate your skin a day before use
  • Try stretching your skin with your free hand, so the hairs stand up and are easily reached.
  • Move the trimmer against the direction of hair growth, making sure the trimmer is in full contact with the skin. 

Wet or dry use

Some of our Bikini Trimmers can be used both wet and dry. If you want to trim wet, make sure that your Bikini Trimmer is suitable for that. Check if a shower or bathtub symbol is printed on the back of your device. Then it is safe to be used with water.

When using wet, make sure your skin is completely wet with water.

Be mindful that trimming wet hair is a bit tricky, as wet hair tend to stick to your skin and are difficult to remove. We recommend trying out both wet and dry trimming and see what works best for you. 

For washable products, clean the trimming head with running water from time to time during use. Also clean the appliance with running water after use and let all parts dry before you store them.

For non washable trimmers, you can blow off the hair on the trimmer or use the cleaning brush supplied to clean the device.

The information on this page applies to the following models: BRT382/60 , BRT383/60 , BRT381/15 .
