Boots Ladies 4 in 1 Multi-funciton trimmer
A big disappointment!
I was pleased when I was sent this product to review as I've been considering buying a trimmer like this for a while, and the fact that this is 4 in 1 was a bonus, though I must say that an epilator for my bikini wasn't high on my list of desires for a product!
Packaging is simple but nice, nice to have the storage pouch to keep all the bits and pieces in, and the gadget itself if basic looking but not displeasing. And was very chuffed that I could use it plugged in or charge it, nothing worse than going to use a gadget then having to wait an hour while it charges.
However, regarding performance, I was really disappointed! The variable trimmer is ok I suppose, but it pulled and tugged a bit giving some ouch moments, same for the detail trimmer. The foil trimmer was next to useless, needing several passes over the same spot to make any sort of impact, and the epilator didn't even work! The head only worked it I started the motor running then pushed the head on part way, if you actually attached the head properly it didn't turn at all. When it was working I tested it on my leg and found it was leaving lots of little scratches too. Now I've never used an epilator before, but I'd be surprised if this was normal. And obviously, it hurt, but then I imagine all epilating does. I'm usually a big fan of Boots products (and indeed I'm an employee!) so this really does pain me to say this - if I'd bought this, I'd be returning it. Nice idea, just needs more work.

All in one perfect for every woman
Very pleased with this item as its suitable for all areas of the body and those awkward can't reach places.
I loved the fact that you could attach the cord and also have it cordless e.g. for when you're in the bath. Excellent for the price as it includes a precision comb, cleaning brush, lubricant oil and storage pouch for easy tidying away.
Only downside is that if you choose to use it for your legs you might get tired as the attachments are so small it takes about 20 mins per leg and it does miss a few stray hairs if you aren't careful! I am yet to try the epilator head fully but it is very small and you do need to allow the hairs to be quite long (about 1-2cm) for it to work fully to its ability.
Overall, good product and will use frequently but not the my legs as it is very time consuming but easy to use in the bath and the battery life is long lasting also.

Why didn't I thought about this little device before...
I really like this product. I know that some of the parts and attachments will not be very suitable for me but the trimmer part is really good and that is the main advantage of this product for me.
I would not recommend using the epilator bit on your legs as it would take ages but the trimmer is great for the bikini area. It does not need to be plugged in all the time and it makes easy to to keep bikini area neat. for me it is a great alternative to waxing, especially considering a price.
