Talking Re: Shave; Nair; Nothing; Other?

I voted go natural, cause I really hate shaving, just too lazy & too much better stuff to do with my time!!

but when I wear shorts in the dead of the summer, I do shave & I do believe there are some things, only the best will do for: razors being one of them...

So I also use the VENUS with the three or four blades & the gell above the blades... I use baby soap when shaving, but heard recently it has "bad" stuff in it, so maybe someone has a better soap suggestion...

Re: Shave; Nair; Nothing; Other?

I picked the last one... another option to waxing & it does really hurt the first time, but after that, I think it's fine. I have a silk-epil, stopped using it, but I'm planning to start again cause I really liked the results & just hate shaving all the time. Similar results to waxing, but I can do it myself. I got so good I could even do my arm pits with it. First time though or returning after a break, I recommend a glass of wine as a pain killer. Feels like waxing.

I also use a Venus razor with just soap & water. I *rarely* get a nick or cut! Those blades last forever too! I bought a pack at COSTCO, I swear it was last April. I think there were 18 in there, I still have 2 left! I shave my legs about every other day & underarms daily.

I love my Venus razor, too. I use hair conditioner instead of lotion or gel.

I use Hubby's as well. I also use his shaving cream to. I believe we use the Gillette Ultra moisturizing..smells a little bit manly but it does the job!!

Re: Shave; Nair; Nothing; Other?

I shave, usually legs no more than twice a week, underarms sometimes more in the summer. I would like to go natural. It doesn't bother me. But Dh prefers shaven, and I think I would gross people out with hairy armpits (but it doesn't gross me out). I had a boyfriend in college who was always trying to get me to grow out my armpit hair because he hated the stubble--this from a man who would only shave like twice a week. Wondering why I didn't do it now.

Re: Shave; Nair; Nothing; Other?

I shave right now but have used an epilator for a long time b4 and it works great! I have to get a new one since the other one is the European system that doesn't work here in the US...
ETA: Epilating does hurt a bit.. but you get used to it!

Re: Shave; Nair; Nothing; Other?

I use a Venus razor when I actually get the opportunity to shave. I shave my underarms daily... the rest of me - whenever I can!
