I haven't but I imagine if Veet has one of those ingredients in it than it may help you.

I use a cordless, rechargeable, electric ladies shavor by Remington. No red bumps. When I do shave with a razor I always make sure my legs are slippery with shower jell or soap. Also make sure your legs are warm, don't ever shave if you have goose bumps. Put some good lotion on your legs after shaving.

hi there.. im afraid of shaving my legs because im afraid that it might thicken the hairs after you've shave it... i think this should be done constantly and that's something i might not get used to it. well, but some says that you need to put special creams after so that you can avoid skin irritaions... try to ask a dermatoligist if you like^_^ hope that helps, thanks

I know what you mean. I get those on my bikini area. Do you use soap or shaving cream? If not, give those a try. Make sure to really lather up and not just use water. The soap will help. Afterward use aloe vera cream. that will help the swelling and bumps a little.

i do that too! and we have the same problem. so i stuck with depilatory creams instead even if it's stinky. in that way the effect is smoother. i still shave when i've got no time, but i apply lotion or oil first before shaving.
