    Thinking of buying an electric razor tomorrow to use on legs/ underarms but I've seen a few reviews saying they don't give as good a shave as a normal razor... Anyone know if this is the case?

    Waving and hair removal cream are out as my skin is too sensitive.

    You can get waxing strips for sensitive skin

    Oh right fair enough I think the electric shavers may be the same as manual shavers! You could try an epilator?
