4 Bumps

A good women's razor. adult content

My old faithful electric razor, for my legs finally died. I guess something from the early 1970's cannot last forever. I bought a bag of inexpensive disposable razors that are either dull as a butter knife, or I am too scared to press harder. What are some of the brands you have found to work. A razor that you buy a new blade for or a good quality disposable razor. I priced electrics, and they are way higher than I want to pay. Summertime is upon us, and even if I am the size of a large Cow, I still like to wear dresses, skirts, shorts and my one piece bathing suit. Thanks.

  • Anything with a double blade works great for me.... what I really focus on is the shaving gel. A good shaving gel can make all the difference. The gels help me to get a smooth shave with no razor bumps.
    Skintimate has a great gel.

    OH and avoid off brand razors... it's one of the products that it's not worth saving on.

  • I use a 4-blade razor from Schick (the Quattro I think - duh...lol) My husband and I both use them. I find that the razor itself is heavy enough to regulate my "press down" while balanced enough to keep me from slicing my leg. But then I've never used an electric razor, so I can see where and why you would feel like you have a little learning curve there. GL to ya.

  • I use my husbands Gillette Fusion and have for about 6 months. The blades last longer.

  • Shick Quattro for her is the only razor I can use. I can't even use those disposables. My legs, for some reason, are very picky and it's annoying. I've tried just about every kind out there, and that's the only one that doesn't eat my legs, while doing it's job (and well, at that).

  • I have to have at least 4 blades to avoid cuts; I've been using Venus and like it a lot.

  • I use a razor that has the chunk of soap on it.

    I use in shower and dont get near the razor bumps that I used to. I've been using this for YEARS! And I always get the sensitive skin ones.
