If you suffer with razor bumps try a quick swipe straight after shaving with a clear men's deo stick. I use Gillette, but have had it a while so I've no idea if they still do it.
I avoid Gillette razors like the plague, though. I use the Wilkinson Sword blades that have a wire wrapped around the blade and have never had a nick. I looked like the walking wounded until I discovered these.
I used to epilate but it was bad for my liver. All that booze and paracetamol!
I'm a tweezing addict, too. I spend ages on YouTube watching ingrown hair videos.
