    Electric shaver for the bikini line...and beyond?

    Does anyone use an electric shaver for not only the bikini line but the legs too? I don't want one exclusively for the bikini area (midas 8000 or whatever it's called). I get mild razor bumps on my upper thighs and HORRIBLE ingrown hairs/razor burn on my bikini line. I have heard reviews of people using electric shavers that claim that they are able to use them on the bikini line without causing ingrown hairs the way a normal razor used to do. Recommendations?

    I bought one of those electric shavers that has a hair trimmer on it too. It has a flat piece on one side that has a small metal edge on it like tiny shears that trims longer hair; you push up this piece when you have hair that is usually too long for an electric shaver.

    Basically what it does is as you move the shaver over your skin, it shears off the longer or coarser hair at skin level, then the shaver blades are able to manage the rest. It can be used with the shearer up, or down if there is only a day or two's worth of hair growth.

    So does the electric razor help with razor bumps/sensitive skin? I already have the trimming down; I use an electric hair trimmer for that so it gets REALLY short, but not smooth as if i were to shave it.
