What is the best way to do your bikini line instead of shaving? I usually shave but want t stop doing it as it's making my skin very red and sore!

Thanks x

Shaving is the least painful in my opinion, lukewarm water, not to hot or cold as it makes the pores do mad things. 
Use extra sensitive soap/foam/insert preference here.
Use new razors all the time, might be the brand, what type you using? 
Shave with the growth first, then against it for super smoothness.
Moisturise well and keep on shaving daily, or as often as possible!

You have super sensitive skin anyway, so it may well be the products you use! 

Heehee, hope thats some good to ya! See you tomorrow for our shoot    xx

Shave, but use conditioner instead of shaving foam. Works for me.
Whatever I've just posted... Felicity Fatale agrees with me.

As someone who used to shave LOTS of blokes pubes and got paid for it. Yes honest and no I am not!!!

Good quality razor with the back guard removed (which makes it like using a cut-throat. They don't half hold still!) then shave DRY with lots of talcum powder.

The worst instruction was, 'Get him ready for a laparotomy.' That was nipples to knees and through. Work that out for yourself.

First one I ever did was like a bear!!!! I have NEVER seen such a hairy man. I was still scraping away an hour and a half later!!!

As  a mear man why should I give advice, but I have found the best thing for shaving both my hair and my ex partners is a product that I have only found in "Wilkinsons" and it only costs £1 for 100 shaves.  Look for a small plastic bottle called 4MEN.
I found from experiance of looking after my ex lady was after a bath moisten the hair and then rub 4/5 drops into the hair, and using a wet razor shave with the razor at a slight angle to the stroke of the razor, going with the hair.
rinse the razor after two strokes, continue until finished. Then sprinkle area again with water and  shave again against the line of growth.
Result a smoth moisturised area that lasts twice as long as a normal shave.

Stick some alcohol-free deo on it after shaving and it'll help with the rash - old stripper trick.

Why don't you try going to a good beauty salon and get it waxed. It may leave your skin a little red but only for a few hours. It doesn't hurt and will last longer than shaving.

I tried painful full bikini waxing, shaving leaving rash and growing back quickly, hair removing gels causing allergic reactions etc.

At the moment I'm saving up for a laser treatment - apparently permanent hair removal emoticon
In the meantime I shave along with using lignocaine gel before and after shaving. 
Lignocaine is a local anaesthetic and is sold on eBay as a bikini gel emoticon Stops rash, redness - works for me.
