For Men and Women: The "Cleancut"/Feather Touch Personal Razor is a battery operated, ultra-fine screen, rotary-head personal razor that leaves the skin very smooth after genital hair removal. It is suitable for men and women who opt for pubic hair removal.

This razor is especially designed for the pubic area and will provide a fine shave without irritation. Neither will it 'bite' the sensitive areas or cause ingrown hairs.

Genital Hair Removal Precautions:

Men: Hair growing on the shaft of the penis and on the testicles can be removed by shaving using a new wet razor. Great care is needed to avoid cuts.

Women: Waxing or sugaring is generally best.

Shaving will only cause stubble to appear after a few days and it may cause skin irritation and painful bumps.

Genital Hair Removal: Shaving

  • Never use the old-fashioned switchblade razor when doing genital hair removal. It is quite unsuitable for genital shaving and can be dangerous.

  • Choose a female razor, obtainable from Wilkinson Sword or other well known razor manufacturers, rather than an ordinary safety razor. Micro fine wires wrap around the blade minimizing the risk of nicks and cuts. Opt for a more expensive good quality razor rather than a cheap throw away which is more likely to cause nicks, soreness and razor burns in this sensitive area.

  • If the pubic hair is thick and long use small scissors to trim down the hair to about a quarter of an inch. This will avoid blunting and clogging the razor too quickly when carrying out genital hair removal.

  • Wet a large, washcloth and lay it over the entire pubic area for two or three minutes. Alternatively, take a long hot bath or stay in the shower for a while making sure the genital area receives a lot of water. Pubic hair is coarser than head hair and needs more time to soften.

  • Apply plenty of shaving foam or gel over the area and leave for a few minutes to soften further. Ordinary soap is not suitable as it does not lock in the moisture to the hair the way a shaving preparation cream or gel does. Experiment with different brands if you find some cause skin irritation. They contain various chemicals and you need to find one that suits you.

  • Pull the skin straight with your free hand and shave without applying pressure.

  • Shave upwards against the direction of the hair growth. Make sure there is shaving foam on the skin each time you make a stroke with the razor. Shaving bare skin can cause razor burn.

  • Rinse the razor every couple of strokes as it will clog easily.

  • Rinse off and see any areas that may have been missed and again apply gel to that area and shave.

  • After genital hair removal, massage unscented Vitamin E oil into the pubic area.

  • To stop or reduce itching after genital hair removal rub an ice cube over the area. Alternatively, rub a little baby oil into the pubic area.

  • If you suffer from itchiness or blood spots, let the hair grow back for a week before shaving again.

  • Keep the shaven area well moisturized between shaves by using a skin moisturizer or baby lotion. This will reduce the uncomfortable effect the stubble may cause between shaves.

  • After the skin in this area has become accustomed to shaving, applying a thin layer of Vaseline petroleum jelly instead of a shaving foam or gel will give a really close shave.

  • Rub in a hair inhibitor after each genital hair removal shaving session to greatly reduce the frequency of having to shave while at the same time moisturizing the skin and making the hair that regrows softer.

waxing tips

Genital Hair Removal: Waxing

  • Avoid showering and making the hair wet prior to waxing. Hair absorbs the water making it soft and less likely to adhere well to the wax. Tough hair is easier to pull off.

  • Before genital hair removal with waxing, be sure to test a small area of skin first to make sure there is no acute sensitivity or allergic reaction to the process.

  • Hair should be at least 1/8 inch long. If it isn't wait until it reaches this length.

  • Be sure to wash the skin thoroughly and dry it well beforehand to remove any lotions or oils which may prevent the wax from adhering closely to the skin.

  • Heat the wax carefully so as not to overheat and thus burn the skin when applying. Test on a small area first. The consistency should be soft rather than runny.

  • If pain and discomfort is a main concern use a pain reducing gel or cream available from pharmacists. These solutions should be applied 30 to 60 minutes before waxing so the skin is numbed beforehand.

  • Apply a thin layer of wax in the direction of the hair growth and peel back with a rapid movement close to the skin. Do not pull up or out, rather pull back.

  • Clean the skin with a warm moist towel afterwards to remove excess wax.

  • Avoid wearing tight clothing over freshly waxed areas to minimize the risk of irritation and ingrown hairs.

  • 24-48 hours after genital hair removal, exfoliate the skin (with a Loofa sponge for example) to prevent the dead skin from accumulating and causing hair to become ingrown.
