    Ladies- I would like my wife to trim the bush a little more than she does but the problem is she has very sensitive skin down there and breaks out horribly when she shaves. Even waxing does not seem to do to good of a job on her. Any advice?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sometimes when my skin is too sensitive for other methods, I use a small electric beard shaver and that seems to do a good job. It isn't as close as a shave or a wax, but there's no irritation and you can still have a nice view.

    electric shavers are good to use. there's so many different types that are available. but if her skin is sensitive she should try the dry electic shavers, which don't require any water or shaving cream. if that doesn't work she can always use scissors to trim.

    I have always had sensitive skin down there and my husband likes me clean shaven. The first time I let him shave me he used his electric razor and while it was pleasurable at the time.....I ended up with painful razor burn.

    I have had the best success with Schick Extreem Disposable Razors for women. They aren't cheap.....like $7.99 for a pack of 4 at Walmart.....but they must be good because my brother in law always steals them from me to shave his head. He prefers mine (for ladies) than the one's for men. I soak in the bathtub and I use Skintimate shaving cream...... I only shave once a week.....for the most part..... I haven't had any problems. I would reccomend this for trimming up. I always take a hand mirror with me to the bathtub.....so I can see what the heck I am doing.

    For me it is really important to soak and wet the area before shaving.....If I try to dry shave I will get razor burn every time.


    I have never been able to use Nair or Neat......that will break me out really bad. And waxing is pretty painful......I can barely stand to get my eyebrows done and then the skin is red for a whole week.


    I hope this helps.

    I am with Kad, I use the same brand razor but I use the Edge gel for sensitive skin with aloe. I usually soak in a hot tub and then shave. I use a beard trimmer to keep the top trimmed up and then I also use a mirror to help shaved but the best shaves are the one my hubby gives me.

    Thanks for all your help. The internet is awesome. I wish my wife would shave it all off for me- but I'll take whatever I can get.

    I use the purple venus ones that have a lubricated strip. They provide enough of a smoothness when shaving to combat irritation.

    I also make sure to put some type of lotion or similar moisturizer on the external surfaces afterwards. It makes the skin bounce back better and there's less irritation on well moisturized skin vs. dried out skin.

    Sounds like you're not into the 5 o'clock shadow. I don't either, too itchy!

    I have really sensitive skin but found that a dry shave with baby powder seemed to offer the best protection from irritation. Just bathe or shower, dry off well and use the powder with an electric shaver. I have seen a lot of advertisements for the Cleancut pubic shaver from Seiko but I found the Remington Soft & Silky pretty good.
