Veet, Nair, razors, wax, ??

What do you do to get ready for bikini season? I normally shave, but I'm really sick of buying replacement razors so often, yet Nair is too strong for my sensitive skin. Has anyone tried Veet? If you wax, do you DIY or go to a salon?

Razor.  I can't use Nair & such because I have such sensitive skin.

I use a razor because the chemicals in veet and nair make me break out in hives and my legs are red and have open sores on them for weeks after. 

But, now, no matter what I do, shaving is starting to irritate my skin as well.  So, I'm with the girls on finding out about laser hair removal.  It would save so much hassle.

This sounds crazy, but for my bikini area, I use Magic Cream. It is for Black Men's heads (says so on the bottle). You can find it in the Ethnic Hair Care aisle of your local store. It works much better than Nair (never tried Veet). It kinda rinses weird, but boy does it work! On my preggo mommy's message board, they talked about it, and it was such a great tip, since none of us could see down there to shave anymore!
