8 Pubic Hair Shaving Products and Grooming Tools

Get a Close Shave, Beat Redness, Ingrown Hairs and Bumps

Pubic hair shaving requires more than picking up the same products you might use for other parts of your body. This delicate and sensitive zone is prone to all of the unwanted, common side effects of using the razor. Forget about using a cheap disposable razor and regular shaving cream. If you want smooth skin, fewer nicks, and bumps with longer lasting results, you need the right tools.

GiGi No Bump Shave Gel

It's great for pubic hair shaving with microbeads, salicylic acid, and willow bark extract to help avoid red shaving bumps. Aloe leaf juice, glycerin, and chamomile flower extract are also in the gel to soothe and moisturize skin.

The gel is fairly clear and doesn't lather so you'll have an easier time seeing exactly where you're shaving. This is especially helpful for creating straight bikini lines, making a landing strip or when putting in designs like a heart or arrow.

My husband, who has extremely thick facial hair, tried this product. He was not only able to skip a day shaving his face, he looked like he had a facial. He also agrees with me, it’s the best shaving cream he’s ever tried (read review). When a product provides a close shave and leaves skin glowing, you can see why it would make a wonderful cream for shaving the bikini zone.

They make three different scents from real essential oils: Lavender, Sandalwood, and Lemon. They also have an Ocean Kelp and Unscented, as pictured here.

Pre Shave Oil

A small amount is first applied before your shaving cream or gel. Pre-shave oil creates a barrier between the razor and your skin so it’s easier for the blade to glide. Gliding, instead of pulling, means making fighting common problems easier to tackle when shaving the pubic area- like irritation, redness and razor burn. A good product will be thin enough to not overly clog razor and moisturize skin.

Bikini Perfect Deluxe is serious about grooming for being able to shave or trim hair wet or dry with six attachments, including a precision trimmer, precision comb, and micro shaver. We love that this cordless system can be used in or out of the shower and has about 60 minutes of run time after being fully charged.

Guys, if shaving your genitals is in your plans, you don’t want to take a regular razor to them. Instead use a personal body groomer which allows you to control the length by shaving the hair down completely or trimming the length, without much risk of cuts or nicks.

We love that these tools can be used on other parts of the body, some can be used both wet and dry and have options for trimming hair down to the preferred length. More »

Bumps and ingrown hairs are two big main concerns after pubic hair shaving. Keeping a product on hand to use as a regular part of your shaving routine helps to prevent or lessen the bumps. And if you don't want to use it often, you'll be able to use it when you need it and tackle the problem immediately.

A big favorite is Tend Skin (read review), specifically made to help fight unsightly redness and keep skin smooth. Just be sure to keep any bump fighter (including all products used for shaving) on the outside of your body only.

Many people do a combination of trimming and shaving in this zone, usually not just one or the other. The Schick Trim Style does both of those jobs with two tools in one. 

On one side is the razor, the other is a battery operated waterproof trimmer with an adjustable comb to trim to different lengths. It's affordable and Schick refill cartridges for the razor can easily found at almost any drugstore.

A mild exfoliation will help get rid of dead skin cells, provide a closer shave and help to avoid ingrown hairs helping the hair to continue to point up when growing. The Ayate washcloth is made of natural fibers from the agave plant.

We love that it's more mold-resistant than a loofah and can be used alone or with your favorite body wash. Throw it in with your other laundry to keep it clean.
