The 5 Best Razors for Women with Sensitive Skin

Ladies, if you are anything like me, you wish you woke up in the morning having smooth legs. Alas, I think I have some hairy gorilla genes in my DNA. The best part is that I also have very sensitive skin so shaving is a literal and figurative pain. No-one said life was fair!

This state of affairs has led me to a lot of experimentation with razors, creams, lasers, anti-gorilla gene therapy, and the like. So if you’re looking for the best women’s razor for sensitive skin, you’ve come to the right gal.

What’s the Best Razor for Women with Sensitive Skin?

#1 Schick Intuition

When it comes to sensitive skin, Schick is a very prominent brand. It’s why we’ve got the Schick brand appearing three times in a list of 5.  Still, not all models are created equal and I like the Intuition for good reason — it’s got shave cream right on the razor. This helps me get a moisturized and smooth shave on my dry skin.

#2 Gillette Venus Embrace

Along with the Intuition, Gillette’s Venus Embrace is one of the best budget razors you can buy for sensitive skin. In the case of the Embrace, water activates a ribbon of moisture for a smooth shave.

  • Has 5 blades in comparison to Intuition’s 4
  • You’ll buy this again and again

Cons

  • The blades last a long time but when you need to purchase refills, they can get a bit pricey

#3 Schick ST2

These are my go-to razors when going out on a trip. They’re cheap and disposable so I won’t cry if I break them on the way or forget them in an AirBnB cabinet.

Schick ST2 for Women Sensitive Skin Disposable Razor - 12 ct - 2 pk

Pros

  • Cheap; you get 12 razors in a pack so it’s roughly a dollar each
  • Has a lubrication strip that helps the razor to glide more easily on skin
  • If you don’t like the hassle of taking care of the higher priced shavers, you can just buy a pack of these and dispose of them often
  • Work as advertised

Cons

  • Don’t give a close a shave as the Venus or Embrace (hence the price difference); I’ve gotten nicks from these if I don’t prep my skin before a shave
  • Blades get dull fast

The Extreme 3 is not my first choice for either a premium or disposable shaver. However, it works for many other people hence its place in my Top 5.

Pros

  • Affordable; you can get these in a pack of 1, 3, or 4
  • Great for sensitive skin because of the aloe, Vitamin E, and shea butter components
  • Not the closest of shaves but gets the job done

Cons
