what do y'all recommend?

What do y'all use to shave legs? Just a plain ol' razor, or something special? i.e. the "intuition" thing, venus, etc. or do you use something else entirely? i don't like using a regular ol' razor so i was wondering if my fellow PLEBAns have any other suggestions.

normal razor

Years ago, I tried Nair, but it smelled awful and didn't really work that great

Triple-blade razor, like Venus or men's razors are the best. And I use a moisterizing shaving foam...I get scaly skin if I just use soap. And I use Jergen's Cherry-Almond lotion on my skin, while it's still moist right after I get out of the show to try and keep my skin hydrated, specially in winter.

I also like the triple blade 'mens' type razors...I have also found that this 'skintimate' moisturizing after shave lotion is the bomb. It really helps with the skin sensitivity and amazingly enough, makes you really smooth afterwards, it is pretty awesome stuff! Give it a try if you are interested, I think you might like it!

I use a regular Venus and soap lather. I also have double-blade disposables for my arm pits and such, but those blades get dull a lot sooner. I like that weird sticky part on the Venus razors b/c it glides better and doesn't cut as often. I think most of the men's blades are the exact same. My little sis also has a Venus and my bro has a Mach or whatever, and they use eachothers blades interchangeably.

Yeah, I've never used it, but I heard that that Nair stuff sucks, too.

I've never waxed anything, either, and I'm not so sure I want to start...sounds a bit painful. I just use the typical razor, and I just looked to see what kind we have in the bathroom...Bic Lady Shaver is the name of the specific razor here. Does the job for me, so.... If you do stick with a razor and want to use that, feel free.

I gave up the razor when I saw the result a summer-shaving. Awful!
So now it's waxing (seriously, it's not that hurting) or the electrical stuff when I'm at home. Moreover hairs grow far less quickly and numerous than after shaving.
And BTW I have an appointment for waxing this afternoon... (ok, it's not that hurting, but still!)

Is the Intuition the one w/ the melting lotion thing on it? I tried that, it doesn't last at all.

Venus is supposed to be the best, and I swear by that Skintimate Shave gel. Or Edge mens gel. Skintimate even has a sepcial one for the bikini area.

I used the Intuition thing for when I travel, it's greaaat cuz you don't have to worry about shaving cream! I actually have had good luck with it.

And waxing, when I can splurge and afford it. Only a quick sting and the smoothness is sooo smooth and lasts quite a while!
