    Why don't you use a hair removal cream instead? They're much less harsh on the skin than using a razor (down there is pretty sensitive isn't it ), and you won't get a rash or anything which some people do when shaving. If your only doing your bikini line too, a tube of cream will last ages.

    If you definitely want to use a razor though, i'd recommend the Venus too, i think you can get ones with aloe strips on which soothes the skin.

    veet hair removal waxing strips?
    i havn't tried them myself but they look pretty good if you can take the pain.

    hair removal cream is gentle, effective and wont leave a nasty rash like a shaver. i'd recommned using it over a razor. however, if you'd rather shave, as long as the razor is clean you shouldn't have any problems. just make sure you use a good shaving cream which is moisturising and will help to soothe the skin.

    you can get smaller razors, specially for that area. they're just disposables, about half the size of regular ones. i've seen them in superdrug

    Erm, you're really not meant to be using hair removal cream on those areas! It's far from being gentle down there.

    And you can't possible say that "it won't leave a rash". They cause rashes for MANY people.

    you can get extra sensitive hair removal cream which is designed especially for the bikini area.
    each person is different though i guess.

    only my own personal recommendation from my experience.
    i know some people react differently to others

    I think out of 10 times, only twice I would break out with some form of rash (do you call two or three tiny bumps a rash?) after shaving down there so I actually recommend shaving! Waxing can be a hassle: tried it twice. Bleh to veet.
