Raise your hand if irritated skin is an everyday norm (🙋🙋🙋)!! If just the thought of shaving gives you chills, welcome to the sensitive skin club—but let’s not kid ourselves, this sh*t sucks. I’m talkin’ razor burns, redness, itchiness—or all three if you’re me, which, yay. So when the time rolls around when I want to shave my unwanted hair, you best believe I cringe at the thought of it. Well, that is until I found some of the best razors for sensitive skin that somehow gave me silky-as-hell skin sans irritation.
Take it from someone who has tried her fair share of DIY hair removal methods, attempted waxing her legs at home, and even spent hella $$ on her own laser hair removal device. If you’re not careful, you can end up irritating your skin even more. (Which, spoiler alert, is zero fun.) So when I discovered that the best way for me to remove unwanted hair required a razor specially made to be extra gentle—and I didn’t have to test out any more experimental “cures”—you bet I was sold. And because I want you, my fellow sensitive skin people, to feel the relief of what a gentle razor can do for your delicate skin, I’ve rounded up nine of the best ones—including, yes, razors for your bikini line and face—below.

Best Overall Razor for Sensitive Skin
Gillette Venus Extra Smooth Sensitive Razor
So you’re tellin’ me that one of the best razors for sensitive skin is under $13?! Yes, yes, and yes! You don’t have to spend a ton of money to find a product for your sensitive skin that does its damn JOB. Take this razor by Gillette, for example; the five blades are ultra-thin, so they glide over your skin instead of irritating it. Bonus: An added ribbon of moisture will protect your skin from any nicks or cuts.
Best Two-in-One Razor for Sensitive Skin
Schick Intuition Sensitive Care Razor
I’m the type of gal that is always late. I’m talkin’ running out of the door, makeup in the car, kind of late. So when I found this razor, which doubles as a shaving cream thanks to the added soap bar, I was sold. One less step in my routine?! I’m all for it. The soap bar is packed with vitamin E and aloe, so rest assured your skin will be left moisturized sans irritation.
Best Electric Razor for Sensitive Skin
Panasonic Electric Shaver for Women
Razor burn?! Nope, not here, thanks to this baby. If you prefer an electric razor, Panasonic makes a great one for sensitive skin. This cordless, three-blade razor is made with hypoallergenic stainless steel that works especially well for those with sensitivities. Not only that, but it includes a special pop-up trimmer for your bikini line. Though it’s marketed to be used with or without water, I personally find that it works best and irritates less when used in the shower.
Best Razor Subscription Service for Sensitive Skin
Billie Razor Starter Kit
The key to shaving with sensitive skin is regularly changing your razor blades. If you’re any normal, busy person, you may forget to do this as often as you should (hi, it me). Enter: The Billie Razor. For 10 bucks, you can purchase the Billie Starter Kit, which comes with a razor handle, two blades, and a magnetic holder. The best part? You can sign up for the razor blade delivery service, which sends out four blades for $10 as often as you choose.
Best Facial Razor for Sensitive Skin
Sephora Metal Facial Razor
True story: I used to shave my face with the same razor I shaved my legs with. Another true story: It hella broke me out. Don’t be me, use a razor specially made for your face, considering, well, your face is delicate. This metal facial razor from Sephora comes with three replaceable blades and is super gentle on your skin. Don’t believe me? Maybe the 23K fans of this product will convince you.
Best Single Blade Razor for Sensitive Skin
Oui the People Rose Gold Sensitive Skin Razor
Ugh, my vanity would look hella chic with this baby. Featuring one single blade, this razor will give you the cleanest shave ever, sans hair-pulling and irritation. For those with super curly hair who typically find themselves having to go over already shaved areas, this razor gets the job done the first time. Hot tip: These razors sell out QUICK, so snag one before they do.
Best Bikini Line Razor for Sensitive Skin
Just like you shouldn’t use the same razor you shave your legs with on your face, you shouldn’t use the same razor on your bikini line…well in most cases. This bikini line trimmer was designed with all areas of the body in mind: Use it anywhere from your head to your toes. In my personal experience, I find that it works best as a bikini trimmer. The rounded blades and LED spotlight give me the closest shave without any nicks, cuts, or irritation.
Best Razor for Sensitive Skin for a Close Shave
The 360° comfort system—AKA the flexible hinge and weighted handle—is designed to give you an extremely close and clean shave the first time around. This means that there’s no need to go back over those spots and cause yourself extra irritation. For $9, I’d say that’s a pretty good steal. Editor’s note: I use this exact razor daily and I am obsessed.
Best Safety Razor for Sensitive Skin
Bevel Safety Razor for Men
If you’re not familiar, a safety razor is a made-to-last tool where instead of changing the whole disposable cartridge head, you only change the single blade. Not only are they more eco-friendly razors, but they also are great for those with sensitive skin. Instead of three or five blades running over your skin in the same area, you only have one, which is said to reduce irritation. This one by Bevel is specially made for those with curly or coarse hair. (And just because it’s marketed for men, that doesn’t mean all genders can’t use it!!) If it’s your first time using a safety razor, you def should check out a tutorial!
