Nobody likes shaving. It’s a fact of life. However, I really don’t like shaving because no matter what I use or how quickly or slowly I use it, I cut my legs up. I wish I was exaggerating, but I’m really not. Band-Aid should be cutting me a freakin' check…that’s how bloodied up my poor stems get from shaving. So I went on a mission to find something, anything that would actually make my legs all nice and smooth, but without the cuts. Here's what I discovered.
- Skintimate Raspberry Rain shaving cream
Smells amazing, but at what cost? It’s like $4 and it doesn’t last very long.
- Venus razor
This is like the basic white girl of razors. It’s nothing special and it costs too much.
- BIC Soleil razor
BIC razors are the Venus razor’s ugly cheapskate stepsister.
- Those nameless razors that come in a pack of like 50 for 2 bucks at Rite Aid
You get what you pay for.
- My dad’s Barbosal shaving cream that made my legs stink like man for approx. 97475438 days
Seriously, this shit made my legs smell like my dad’s face for days. Not okay.
- Coconut oil
Coconut oil has many wonderful uses. In my experience using it for shaving is not one of them. It left my legs all slimy and weird.
- Just plain ole water
Why did I even think this would be a good idea? It’s painful and left me with the worst razor burn of my life. Dumb move, Jordan.
- Garnier Fructis Conditioner
This stuff slides off your legs and makes the bottom of the shower super slippery. Overall health and safety hazard.
- Softsoap body wash
Made my legs smell really nice, but that’s about it. Also, very slippery on the shower floor.
- My mom’s Schick Hydro razor (with a new blade, obviously)
FINALLY. A razor that left my legs super smooth and not cut up. They’re pretty damn expensive to be honest with you, but if it means I don’t have to wait for my legs to stop bleeding so I can put my goddamn jeans on, I’m willing to fork over some cash. 10/10 would recommend.
