Finding the Right Product for You

Whether you’re embarking on your first pubic hair removal journey, or on the lookout for the perfect pubic shaving set, the following products can form the perfect shaving set for all skin types including dry and sensitive skin.

Every Woman’s Pubic Shaving Kit

1. A Sharp Razor

Since your hair down there is the thickest hair on your body, you need to choose a sharp razor for pubic hair to achieve a clean bikini shave. Dull razors can lead to many uncomfortable side effects and can increase the chances of skin irritation and the development of bikini line rashes.

The Venus razor for women includes an irritation defense bar, ensuring a smooth shave that helps prevent shaving irritation from occurring. The razor also lessens the chances of razor bumps and ingrown hair, for an all-around safe and effortless shaving experience.

Tip: Use steady strokes to achieve the desired shave, whether it’s a full-on clean shave or a trim! You can even use the precision trimmer at the back of the Venus razor if you fancy a pubic hair design!

2. A Set of Refill Blades

You should ensure your blades are changed after 5-10 shaves. If you continue to use the same blades for too long, the blade will collect more and more bacteria from surrounding substances and can irritate your skin. You will know it’s time to say goodbye to your old blades once you notice any tugging or rubbing of the skin.

With our Venus refills you can easily replace your old blade with a fresh new one, the pack comes with 4 easily attachable blades. Each refill also has a precision trimmer on the back to help with intimate hair removal.

3. An Exfoliator

Exfoliating is a significant part of the pubic hair removal process, but most people wonder whether to exfoliate before or after shaving? Exfoliating before shaving helps prepare the area for shaving by getting rid of dead skin cells, oils, and other bacteria on the pubic area. This leaves the base of the skin smooth for the razor to target hairs more efficiently.

The Venus Skin Smooth Exfoliant works effortlessly to remove any unwanted elements such as dead skin cells. The ingredients within the balanced formula help to smooth the skin out whether you choose to shave or not.

4. A Shaving Gel

There is a difference between shaving gel and shaving cream for pubic hair and it’s good to know which one is best for you. Shaving gel provides better lubrication for the shave and doesn’t’ contain many ingredients such as dyes and fragrances. Whereas shaving cream has the tendency to clog your razor which increases the time it takes you to achieve a smooth shave.

It can be tricky to find the perfect shaving gel for women, but the Venus 2-in-1 Cleanser and Shaving Gel makes that choice easier. The bikini shaving gel can be used as a daily cleanser to keep your pubic area free of any irritation. Plus, the clear formula makes it easier for you to see what you are doing for a safer and more guided shave.

A Moisturiser

Incorporating a moisturiser in your pubic hair shaving routine can help retain the moisture and oils that are extracted from the area during shaving. However, due to the area being highly sensitive post-shaving, it’s so important to find the right aftershave balm for the bikini area.

The Venus Daily Soothing Serum is designed to be used after you shave your bikini line to help rehydrate the skin and decrease the chance you will feel itchy afterwards. This serum is a useful part of a wider bikini line hair removal regime. It is pH balanced and made without fragrances or dyes in its formula.

With our 5 top tips to shaving your pubic area, and the right tools at hand, you can achieve a comfortable and close shave day after day. The pubic area requires a lot of maintenance which is why we’re sure that these essential products will have you all set for your next bikini shave, minus the knicks, cuts and razor bumps that may come with shaving.
