Re: Shave; Nair; Nothing; Other?

the venus razor is nice, but i use plain old daisy! i use conditioner on my legs to shave....it works wonders! nice smooth, conditioned skin and no cuts! Make sure you are changing your razor after every other shave. they are kind of weeny. i shave my legs not too often yet, but in the summer every other day. Underarms every other day.

Re: Shave; Nair; Nothing; Other?

I shave. Venus here too. Normally I use a thick conditioner like tresemme.. works wonders and goes a long way. And occasionally, when I wanna be REALLY smooth... I use baby oil and a new razor! LOL... yes it really works! I learned this trick from a stripper I once new. Works especially well on the nether regions, DH is especially fond

Do you use the baby oil in the shower?

I usually do the baby oil thing when I take a bath... much easier.

I shave every day with a Venus Vibrating razor (which I thought was stupid, but it was free, and the thing rocks) and whichever shaving cream I have a coupon for. The vibrating razor goes really fast and smooth. We wear shorts 10 months out of the year here, so I need to be smooth.

Yesterday I had all 4 kids in the tub with me, the baby was nursing, and I was shaving - and still no cuts! Woo hoo!

OK go ahead and say it
Me too!! But I didn't go to Denmark. I rarely shave my legs, but do shave my bikini line if I'm going swimming.

As for my armpits.. I believe dh calls it "jungle safari."

I use an epilator from Braun... Works great. Have used it for years and I love it. I am from Europe, so I used it there first.
When I moved here, I was kind of suprised that I couldn't find it at any store. I finally ordered one from Amazon.

I have a feeling epilators are mainly a European thing?

I shave and just use soap. I just do a close trim with a beard trimmer on my girly area.
