Best product for shaving legs?

I have sensitive skin on my legs and find that shaving with normal shower gel makes my skin break out in tiny red pimples. I tried Somersets shaving oil to see if that made a difference but it didn't. Are there any products that might do a better job?

I don't see how you can beat using a Natural/non chemical conditioner for shaving

100% aqueous cream

Conditioner - cheapo stuff is fine.

Conditioner and a fresh blade.

Gillette Mach 3 razor and Tesco sensitive shave gel, from the men's section. Anything else leaves me so itchy that I scratch until my legs bleed.

Don't moisturise after shaving

Moisturise before shaving. Works a treat.

Get some non perfumed oil from the health food shop, use that pre shave. Then shave with mens shaving gel.

Lush Prince - discovered several years ago and no going back, only thing I've used that doesn't make my legs (or armpits or bikini zone) feel like sandpaper afterwards.

Any kind of oil.

Nivea or Superdrug in shower moisturiser is excellent

This might sound silly so forgive me but I always used to get this if I shaved in the shower when it's cold weather and I finally realised last winter that it's because I'm a little goose-bumpy so that was what was causing the rash so in the colder weather now I have to shave in a bath/put plug in shower and submerge a bit first to warm them up! I'm fine if I do that. Worth a go?

I use hair conditioner and it works beautifully
