what is the best way to get rid of irritation from shaving in the bikini/pubic area? i've tried all kinds of lotions (unscented) and even shaving with conditioner, but the irritation always comes back. any ideas?

Stop shaving?

Look no one has to remove any hair on their body. As well, there are other methods to do so besides shaving (waxing, for instance, or just trimming).

It's sensitive skin there,m in a place that stays fairly warm all the time. If you're going to shave, you're going to have some irritation, and that's just part of the deal.

But if you don't like that (hardly blame you), you don't HAVE to shave.

i don't wanna sound like an infomercial or anything (god, did i get going on my Keeper jeeeshh) so i'll keep it short this time )

if you have the cash to get it, order the Seiko Cleancut online. amazing.

but ditto to what Miz said. if you're going to use regular razors, you're always going to get some irritations... sometimes less, sometimes more...

for the "sometimes less" just keep trying if you really want to be smooth... just gotta find out what your personal skin likes.

good luck, it many a woman's quest lol.

what about the "Finishing Touch" hair removal system? does anyone know anything about that? it seems too good to be true, which means it probably is...

I hate the irritation I get from shaving...my best advice is shave in the direction of the hair and try using a shavin cream with aloe. For sum reason I found it helps alil..other than that I dunno what else would help
