I hate shaving my legs. I do. This should come as no surprised to you, as we have firmly established that I am beauty lazy. But there is also the annoyance with trying to balance in my too-small shower, which cream/gel/oil to use and whether my blade is too dull this time & I don’t want to get out of the running shower to get a new one RIGHT NOW. And I have been happy that it has been winter (*was that winter?), that I have had the ready made excuse of only wearing pants all the time for months now to avoid this nonsense as much as I could.
But, the calendar (*and Mother Nature) have determined that it is already Spring and I have got to do something about these legs to make them acceptable on a semi-regular basis. Enter Sally Hansen Simply Smooth Hair Remover Creme.This stuff was made for lazy girls like me, and folks that want easy, multi-day smooth legs.
Just smooth the cream on with the applicator – that snaps into the side of the bottle so you won’t lose it – about a minute or so before you get in the shower. It says that it will stay on in the shower, as long as directly water doesn’t hit it, but I have hard water pressure, so I made sure to stay out a couple of minutes to make sure it was working, just in case. Now, they have this “Odor Less” technology that lessens the smell of the product, and I have to say that it didn’t smell near as strong as I am used to from depilatories. It was still there, as it can’t entirely go away, what with the chemicals doing their magic, but it really was much less noticeable. Anyway, hopped in the shower and after a few more minutes I rubbed it off with water & my legs were smooth. There wasn’t any burning on my can-be sensitive skin, nor any bumps or redness. This was a win.
This will run you around $11USD and is available at mass market retailers and drugstores now.
Are you guys daily shavers? What do you normally use to keep your legs smooth in the warm weather?
