Razors have always been the most practical (and fastest) tool for removing hair especially on the face, legs, and pubic area. They’re very easy to use and effective too.
However, not all razors are suited for sensitive skin which makes it very challenging to find the one that’s perfect for you since ingrown hairs and bumps, knicks and razor burns are all too well known.
Thankfully, we live in a time where you have the option to buy good razors for sensitive skin.
You don’t have to look far and wide just to find the best razor for your sensitive skin, may it be for removing unwanted hairs on your face, legs, or in the pubic area.
Best Women’s Razors for Sensitive Skin
We’ll primarily look at razors that are best suited for 3 body parts – the legs, the bikini area, and the face – all sensitive areas.
Yes, even legs can be sensitive (if you’re like me and you have Keratosis Pilaris and folliculitis).
Now, how about some razors specifically for the face?
Now for the part of the body that gets the most ingrown hairs (at least, for me) – the bikini area!
Final Tips Before Buying a Razor
Before we get into the actual reviews and my top picks, I’ve gathered up some practical key points to keep in mind when buying a razor for your sensitive skin.
Don’t Be Afraid to Experiment
Remember how scientists discovered cures, machines, elements and the like? It was because they weren’t scared to experiment.
You too can find the best women’s razor for sensitive skin by trying out all kinds of products before finally settling on one that suits you best.
Remember that razors are a necessity for men and women and there are many of them to choose from. If you want, you can try the most popular ones first and see if you can find your perfect match.
Or you can ask a friend for a recommendation. Which leads to the next practical tip.
Ask for Recommendations
Do you have friends or relatives who also have sensitive skin? Try asking them what kind of razor they use for removing hair on their face, legs, and bikini area.
Once you ask for recommendations on a good razor, you don’t have to buy many of them just to find the right one.
You can limit your options by buying only those which they’ve suggested that you try. This saves time and money on your part.
But make sure that the person giving you their recommendation actually has sensitive skin.
Always Read Reviews
Nowadays you can find product reviews on just about anything including skincare products for people with sensitive skin.
There are blogs, social media accounts, and the online marketplace where you can read about what other people like you are buying.
You can even ask advice from the authors on which razor is best for your skin type.
Personally, I tried all multi-blade razors, which worked fine, but since I have both KP and folliculitis, it didn’t work for me in the long run.
So, as of June 2018, I am a woman that uses a safety razor. Best shaving experience ever!
If you also want to know how it’s like to have the closest shave of your life, read my article on the best safety razors for women.
But, of course, safety razors may seem frightening and not for everyone, so we’ll stick to regular multi-blade razors in this article.
How to Shave Sensitive Skin
I have a separate article on the topic of how to avoid ingrown hairs after shaving, but here I’ll just mention a few key factors to keep in mind.
Before you even think of shaving – prep the skin beforehand by exfoliating it!
If you have sensitive skin, then maybe not on the day of shaving, but one or two days prior with good exfoliating products.
Read my article on how to exfoliate legs and other body parts.
For some, those sea salt scrubs are just too harsh, that’s why you can also skip the products and just softly exfoliate with a good dry body brush.
Find the Best Razor That Works for You
Use a razor with a fresh blade and store the razor in a dry area. It is actually moisture that causes dulling of the blade faster than using the blade to cut hair.
A blade should last for 4 full shaves, including arms, legs and bikini area.
Trim the Area
If you have hair that is longer than ¼” start by trimming the area. See my reviews for some ideas.
Trimming will help avoid unnecessary hair tugging and ingrown hairs.
Soak the Hair in Hot Water
For a minimum of 5 to 10 minutes. For me, I usually shave after I’ve washed my hair and put in conditioner.
That’s enough time for the hot water to soften the hair and open the pores.
Apply a Gentle Shave Cream or Gel
This will allow the razor to glide more smoothly, which will also help prevent razor burn and ingrown hairs.
I recommend buying one of the best organic shaving creams to have the silkiest shave possible.
Use an Aftershave
Women don’t usually have a lot of options for aftershave, compared to men, but here’s an article with good aftershave lotions for women.
My personal go-to product is Tend Skin Solution. It really gets rid of ingrown hairs and razor burns like it’s nobody’s business.
Note: always avoid scented aftershave products for a few hours because the skin will be sensitive right after shaving.
Also, avoid tight clothing for the next few hours.
To Sum It All Up
Having a sensitive skin should never be a hindrance to have a flawless, hairless, and smooth complexion.
It’s a myth that the best women’s razor for sensitive skin doesn’t exist. And that we, the sensitive skin types, should stick only to waxing or epilating.
Nonsense! You CAN and you WILL find which is the best one for your skin.
Many razors today are available in all shapes and sizes and most of them are ideal for all skin types too.
Moreover, most of these products already come with lubricants or moisturizers like shea butter.
It’s a must to have a reliable razor with you wherever you go. You can never know when you need a quick shave or trim.
