Re: Shave; Nair; Nothing; Other?

I stopped shaving in 11th grade (over 20 years ago ) when I went to live in Denmark and none of the girls shaved there.

Since then, I've only had smooth legs twice to be in 2 weddings.

I have hairy legs and still wear shorts and skirts. The hair does stop growing at some point so don't imagine that I am tripping over my own leg hair or anything like that.

OK go ahead and say it

In the winter I go a month without shaving, in the summer its about once every 2-3 weeks... I use the razor with the soap around the blade? It's fast and easy for me that way.. LOL

I shave and use either soap (Dove) or my Bath and Body Works Cotton Blossom shower stuff. Love it!

Re: Shave; Nair; Nothing; Other?

I use the INTUITION shaver. Has the "bar of soap" around the razor so it really feels like your taking a bar of soap and running it up and down your legs. No need for lotions or shaving creams etc cuz it's built in.

When I first started using it I honestly thought it wasn't doing it's job because I couldn't feel anything but when I rubbed my hand up my leg it was like a babies butt!

Very quick and easy to do in the shower even with my ds in there.

They are $6-8 for the razor and one "shaving/soap head" and $7-8 for the 3 pk of refill heads. Rubber grip and big so it's easy to use. It comes with a suction cup hanger deal so you can hang it in your shower. It even has a cover for it (makes it easy when you are traveling).

Re: Shave; Nair; Nothing; Other?

I shave with a Gillette sensor for women, skintimate shave gel and on my bikini area, use bikini zone gel. It's awesome. No more bumps. I skipped shaving my armpits the other day when I was in the shower, Dh was giving me such a hard time. This is the man that shaves his face once a week. So, I shave pretty much EVERY shower. I hate it, but I can't afford to go get waxed and I can't do it myself. I'm not good at it and I end up having to shave anyway!

I use Intuition, too. It's spendy, but it's such a time saver for me. It's amazing how much time you spend rubbing on soap or shaving cream. The intuition is easy to use and I don't get razor burn from it. I have really sensitive skin, too.
