Girls, how do you shave down there?
I've shaved before but I always manage to miss a spot. I'm going to shave just to surprise my boyfriend (we both agree that shaving is too much of a hassle, so I normally just trim it short) and I don't want it to look like sh*t (like with a bunch of red bumps and stray hairs).
So what are your "strategies" for shaving down there? Any tips? (And don't tell me to wax, NOT going to happen).

If you've got sensitive skin like me, don't bother
Honestly don't be a baby and go for the wax, it'll be worth it
Whenever I shave down there initially it's awesome, perfectly smooth and pretty
Then next day it's a disaster, no matter when I do, I get red spots everywhere and they take about 2 weeks of lotion and sun exposure to go away, and they're extremely ugly
With the waxing you'll be a bit red for 24-48h max and then smooth as ice for 3+ weeks
If you must shave, make sure your skin is properly exfoliated (do it 24h before shaving though, otherwise you'll be too raw) and keep it hydrated too. Exfoliate 3x a week to prevent ingrown hairs, moisterise every day.
I still manage to cut myself from time to time if I give in and shave because it's just an awkward place to get to in some areas
Smooth out the outer lips if you do those too before sliding the razor on them, you'll have less chance of catching the skin (cuts down there not only hurt but can get nasty - humidity, urine... can lead to infection so watch out and if you do cut yourself use desinfecting skin healing cream)
Before I started shaving I had a bush because I didn't know that girls tamed that area. I did everything later then other girls. I shave it all now because that's what I started doing. I have cream for the red bumps that helps and when you use a good shaver you do not get them. A lot of guys like some shaving if not all. Wow don't have much tolerance for pain do we. I guess you don't wax your brows or any other areas.
