  • I use BikiniZone Anti bump shave gel and Sally Hansen medicated Zero Bumps pads. the medicated pads sting when applied but relieve the long term pain.

  • Yup. That product is AMAZING!!! It stops you from getting ingrown hairs and red bumps......and razor burn. Apply before AND after.

  • you could try conditioner too. i use that sometimes instead of shaving gel. it softens the hairs on your legs so you don't feel like a christmas tree when you skip shaving and moisturizes your skin. also, try a new blade. don't use the same one for more than a few shaves. if it gets dull nothing you can do will stop the razor burn.

  • Try a men's shaving cream for razor burn. I suggest this bc it's actually what alot of my female impersonator friends use, and it works!!

  • Try Aveeno products. I use Aveeno Bath Oil. It's about $6-$10 (depending on where you buy it) but it's so worth it. You can also try the Aveeno lotions, they're great skin soothers.

  • Aveeno has amazing products, especially their shaving cream.

  • Get that creme ribbons bodywash by Olay, be generous. It is really thick and it coats your skin. For the bikini area I get little zit like razor burns sometimes. The only thing that helps with these, that I have found anyway, is Noxema Triple Clean. It is for your face, but as long as you are careful where you put it....The other thing I have noticed is that if my legs are freshly moisturized right before I shave - razor burn is much worse. So try not moisturizing the 24 hours before. Hope this helps.

  • bakini zone saves my bekini line!

    Answer by Angie430 at 11:14 PM on Jul. 17, 2008

  • Bikini Zone didn't help me at all. I have tried everything in the world. Every kind of razor they make, every type of shaving cream or gel, all kinds of ointments. Still I get it. The only thing that even kinda helps is some stuff called Coochie Cream. You have to order it online or get it from a porn type shop. It comes in different types, like a shaving cream or an after shave spray. It is kinda high, but it is better than anything else I have found.
