Spiky legs

  1. Stupid question - I get so tired of having to shave my legs every day. Some days I think I must be part Yeti for it to grow so fast. What brand of razors (or do you use other products like wax or Nair) is your favorite.

    I use the Venus Razor.... I love it! I have been using for the past year. I also use that Jergens Leg Creme... that slows down hair growth... I don't know if it has really slowed it down... but it make my legs feel silky smooth.

    I usually will wax my legs twice a year...once in the spring... and once in the winter

    I use whatever generic razors I'm cheap. I can't use shaving gel it makes my legs break out, ok that sounds stupid, but it kind of does! I use shampoo instead:chuckle

    Also my leg hair only grow below my knees now...my whole family's this way...so all & all I'm a wierdo!

    Gillette Good News disposable razor. For some reason my legs look have that dead plucked chicken look right afterwards, lately. Hate that.

    Waxing about every 4 weeks.

    Thinking about laser removal.

    Being the half Italian that I am, the fur seems to be never ending! I used to shave everyday when I was younger, but pre-menopause seems to have slowed the growth process down and it doesn't seem so thick anymore. Now I only have to shave every three or four days. I also use Gillette Good News. Buy the big bag and everyone uses them...Husband, son, now daughter(13) She insists that she use this stuff in a can called "Skintimate" cuz her GF uses it. ...Oh to be young again!

    I caught my wife using my razor once and told her just to keep it!
    A mans razor is a very personal thing.

    to shave i use Suave Skin Silkening Oil and Schick Xtreme III razor...follow it with Jergen's Naturally Smooth Lotion..which i do think works..when ibought it, it was on sale, andi thought, "eh, it smells good, even if it doesn't end up working.." but it does...it doesn't halt the growth entirely...but it does seem to slow it down...

    you know, if you just leave it alone, eventually it will get soft enough that you won't even notice it.

    (shudding at that thought) I use an electric razor, and a cheap-o disposable if that doesnt take care of it.
