Question of the Day - Aug 21st - Friday

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Leg Shaving!

Lets talk legs. Do you use a razor, nair, veet or are you one of the lucky ones who don't need to shave? How often do you need to shave?

I use a razor and shaving cream. I've tried Nair and Veet but I just can't get them to work for me.

ha ha ha.

This is too funny, all because I REALLY need to shave.

My leg hair is quite dark, so I have to shave every 2-3 days. ( it's been 6 days )

I either shave or use an epilator. Maybe once a year I'll go for a wax. I want to try that body sugaring tho.

I have tried Nair, and products like it..... doesn't work for me.

Call me lucky. Never really had to. Very little leg or armpit hair. Guess I'mm further evolved than the rest of you.

I have done laser hair removal, and even though I didn't finish the treatment (I did 5 of 8 treatments), I was left with very little hair - When I shave I use an electric shaver...

I use a man's razor and regular soap & water.

I shave every 3 or 4 days all year round. It drives me crazy when my leg hair is long

I use a regular razor and soap and water. My leg hairs are very soft, though, so if I want to go longer in between shaving, I do.

Definitely mens razors, I don't know why they are so much better! I'm generally pretty frustrated with how much razers costs these days, but there is little you can do about it. I get really itchy when my leg hair is too long, so it's every 2 to 3 days or I'm scratching like mad.

I've been banned from using veet because of the smell hubby can't stand it, but it's so much easier!!!

My brother shaves because he's a pretty serious runner (did the half this summer and a full marathon in October) and apparently his legs also get quite itchy. I spend almost the entire day with him (he was wearing shorts) before I noticed how smooth his legs were!!

Hubby trims certain parts of his body, but we don't need to get into that...
(His chest hair sickos!! )
He also likes to do his head from time to time I keep telling him he looks ridiculous but he says it's cooler! We did do our son early in the summer because he has TONS of hair, we shaved the baby

I use a razor and soap. I've got blond hair so i can get away with not shaving for a while. I don't even pay attention to how many days between shaves, I just do it when I feel like it's time.

Speaking of the high cost of razors... besides that, do we really need 5 blades?? Really? I struggle these days to find replacement blades for my Gilette Sensor which is a 2 blade razor. I like 2. More than that and i feel like each blade is taking off a successive layer of skin... I think there was an SNL commercial for the Mach 13 that went down to the bone or something silly..

I'd like to learn to use a straight razor sometime, but then i think, I like my blood on the inside.. haha

I shave as little as possible when I do, I use a single blade women's razor with shaving cream but sometimes I use hair conditioner instead

ETA: I do shave my armpits everyday, it's my legs I don't shave

I use either soap or men's shaving cream and the lady Venus razor. I don't nick myself around the ankles as much since I've been using the Venus. But I usually stop just above my knees as the thigh hair isn't very noticable!

I'm one of the evolved as well. I shave my armpits about once every 4 months and get very little for my effort. Legs - haven't shaved them for 24 years and have no hair at all on them.

I hate that stubbly feeling, so I shave every couple days with soap and a regular ladies' razor.
post #15 of 25
I guess I am one of the lucky ones as well. I have very little hair on my legs and what I do have is very light and is extremely hard to see. So I just shave my legs occasionally, then with a razor and shaving cream.

You're allowed to have hairy legs, Rigel. On guys it's sexy.

But we have to keep your legs looking good when you wear a kilt!

post #18 of 25
Shave my legs every 2-3 days during spring/summer, winter it's every 3-4. I'm also a runner and it's still warm to wear shorts so I need to keep them shaved.

I use a Schick quatro razor & cheap shaving cream. Single and double blades nick me and I hate when I miss a spot and have a strip of peach fuzz leftover so the triple or quatro blades work great for me.
post #19 of 25
I use an electric shaver for women. I shave about once a week in the summer and less often in the winter.
post #20 of 25
Razor, and I shave about once a week, occasionally more during shorts weather if I feel I need to and sometimes go longer in the winter. I have very fine leg hair, so I don't need to shave until it gets pretty long.
post #21 of 25
I shave my legs 2-3x a week / I shave my armpits every other day though.

I use shick quattro for women (razor) and Aveeno Positively Smooth shave gel. (It's great if you have sensitive skin like me! Soap and water just doesn't cut it!!)

If I need to shave quickly, I like the Shick Intuition Plus. It has the shaving cream built in, so you can shave really fast if you need to!

I can't use Nair or Veet....all that stuff breaks me out horribly!
post #22 of 25
I shave my legs when DH REALLY starts complaining, and not before! I absolutely HATE shaving my legs for a few reasons. First, our shower is one of those tiny stalls and the contortions my body has to go into to get each leg without knocking myself out are not possible. Also, because I'm not real talented with a razor and usually end up looking like I tried to sacrifice myself to the gods. My main problem is I try to get it done too fast and slice myself good, at least once.

I tell DH in the winter though that if he can grow hair on his face to keep him warm, I can grow hair on my legs...same thing, right?

I "think" I use a Venus razor...I'm not sure, but I know it's pink and that I need new blades for it.

I tried an epillady.....once. OUCH!

Ohhhh kilts are definitely sexy!!!


Anyways...
yea I used to get my legs waxed at a spa but I gave up on that and then started using an epilator. It becomes a pain the butt eventually though...
I started using a razor after giving up on the epilator..And I have very dark hair and a lot of it ..I guess that's common for a southern european like me but it's a curse...
I have to shave every 2 days!!! It's horrible...
I only have dark hair on my lower legs, my thighs scarcely have any hair at all !!
