I had to stop shaving the bikini zone due to ingrown.  not a great compromise

I get ingrowns there if I don't shave.  It got better with chamois cream but much better once I shaved.  My "bumps" go away after one day.  It is just 30min to 4hrs post shaving.

glad to hear I'm not alone to get ingrown hair down there...
last year I used depilating cream for the first hair removal of the year, it was fun but the main problem is that it doesn't work well on shorter leg hairs.


Was curious to try this : http://coachlevi.com/product-reviews/day-away-exfoliating-shaving-cream/


But I'm not sure It's going to be easy to find in my neck of the wood...

I stopped shaving for the winter. I might not do it again. Not decided yet.

No issues with ingrowns or bumps. The razor allows the closest possible shave you'll get outside of a straight blade.

HOLY ZOMBIE!


You use a safety razor on your legs/inner thighs??


I would be in serious pain if I did that.


I ended up waxing all summer, and now am starting  to go back to my Wookie look.  I did not have an ingrown or saddle sore all summer long.  I would keep it up, but its too damn expensive.

You'll likely nick yourself a couple of times at first, but once you get the hang of it you have far fewer issues with cuts than you would with a grocery store disposable razor. Safety razor changed my life.

I got a silly lady electric epilator, it's long, it's painful at first, but after that, the job is nice and stay good for 2-3 weeks I'm going to keep it up during the winter too since my skin is actually getting used to the pain.
I use it about once a week to keep it clean looking and it's perfect.

Much better than shaving 2-3 times a week, getting ingrown hair and cutting myself.

For my legs, I use one of these. Once a week, takes about 10 minutes. 5 minutes if I rush it but I usually miss a tint spot or two.

those kinds of disposable razors eat my skin up. I get bumps, ingrowns, etc.

Anyone used a straight blade for man areas?

I wouldn't really put that in the category of a disposable razor. Even the one you posted has disposable blades...

The magic of mine is the vibrating head.

um, ok. Are you laughing at the concept or the joke setup?

Anyway, it works very well, and only needs a very light touch which limits ingrown hairs, bumps, irritation, etc.

Although it's electric it's still a blade directly against the skin so it works much better than other types of electric razors.

Still getting waxed once a month, as I have been all summer.  Works great as long as I exfoliate.  When the hair does grow back now, it's much sparser, thinner and lighter colored.
