  • I used that Olay body wash. The one with ribbons or whatever I just put it straight on my legs and don't lather it up. So it's nice and slippery. I have very sensitive leg skin so I get screwed over very easily when I shave. LOL

  • I just use water...I shave after I've already cleaned myself in the shower. I can shave every three days without pain. I have sensitive skin too.

  • I found this stuff at the lions den called coochie. I know sounds bad but it smells good and you don't get any razor burn.

  • I have the same prob when I use disposable razors. They break me out every time. I like those Shick 4 blade ones for women. They work really well.

  • I have an electric razor that has a gold foil for sensitive skin (sounds expensive but I found it at Tuesday Morning for $15). It's not as close of a shave as a regular razor, but I don't get bumps or cuts, and you can use it wet or dry.

  • I use Conditioner... Try it, it'll probably work!

  • Don't shave 'em! Who says you have to anyway? I'd like to know who had the idea that women can't have body hair; but it has gotten out of hand. I have a pal who gets her arms waxed for goodness' sake! Shaving often irritates my legs too, and makes them all blotchy and itchy. I only shave on a whim. Usually, I'm Hairy Sherri! My husband doesn't mind at all- in fact, he thinks it's cool that I can go hairy and feel sexy still!
