    I’d also like some suggestions – I’ve always waxed but I’m pinching pennies at the moment 🙁  Is it worth trying home waxing or can anyone recommend a great shaving routine to prevent insta-stubble and razor burn?

    I use a gillette mach 3 and have for years. I use it for both my legs and underbits. I like men’s razors so much more than ladies: they are smaller, get a closer shave and seem to last a lot longer. Hope this helps.

    I use one razor for everything, however I do normally get my vajayjay waxed b/c I’m prone to razor bumps and ingrown hairs. However I have used my razor down there while in a pinch and it works great it’s the Schick Hydro 5 blade (mens razor) I LOVE it, works better than any ladies razor I’ve used! http://www.amazon.com/Schick-Hydro-5-Blade-Razor/dp/B003BVINQI

    I’m an anomaly I guess.  Natural.  There’s a biological reason for it and that’s how I justify it.  Mostly, I just don’t like how it feels to be hairless.

    I use the Mach 3, too! I like it for everything–armpits, legs, etc.

    I also use an electric trimmer and scissors before I shave, though. That seems to cut down on irritation.

    ETA: I don’t shave everything, but I do like the hair to be low, neat & groomed.

    I agree, men’s razors work the best. I tried waxing myself a few months ago and it was a disaster LOL and the creams dont last anytime at all. I want to get laser hair removal when I can afford it!! AFTER the wedding boo 🙁

    I use the same razor for everything–a Gillette Venus Divine. I used to use both the Venus, and a cheapy disposable razor for closer areas, but I ran out of the cheapies a while ago, and just never bought them again.

    I think I’m going to look into a men’s razor, however, after reading some of these answers!

    Mach 3 club! Use it for everything.

    I started using a Mach 3 when I was on a 8 week trip to Israel and ran out of women’s disposable razors. I used a male friend’s Mach 3 (he gave me my own blade) and I will NEVER go back to using women’s razors again!

    I’m also in the men’s razor club!! I use the Gillette Fusion (the one that vibrates). Will never go back to women’s razors again. It’s 5 blades but isn’t bulky at all.

    I like the Gillette Venus  Embrace. I use the cartridges interchangably. The Embrace is a bit bulky but I like that it has the moisturizing strips and has 5 blades.

    To be honest, I just use whatever I have or whatever is on special. I actually got a bunch of man razors last sumer for free and have been using those.
