We’ve all been there. Deciding what to wear so you don’t have to shave your legs. Don’t lie ladies, we all do it. For me I don’t shave because I’m lazy. But maybe you have other reasons. A friend of mine asked me recently what I used to shave my legs as she couldn’t seem to find a shaving cream that didn’t dry her legs out. I have a bottle of shaving cream in my shower but honestly I don’t reach for it that often when once in a blue moon I do decided to shave the forest that is my legs. Here are some of the things I use instead.
I always shampoo twice and condition once. So I always run out of shampoo before conditioner. I use whats left over to shave my legs. It is really moisturizing and definitely cost effective. My mom has not used a shaving cream in years, she exclusively uses conditioner. TRESemme with Pro-Vitamin B5 & Aloe
If you are like me you go through body wash like there is not tomorrow but have bottles upon bottles of lotions and body butters. Put them to good use and use them to shave those legs! This is a great way to get through a bottle of lotion that you aren’t particularly fond of. You are literally pouring it down the drain, but you have put it to use so you can feel good about it. Tree Hut Olive and Shea Body Butter, Lavender and Chamomile
Avon has some fantastic bath oils and they often run sales. This is also super moisturizing and it leaves your legs feeling extremely soft. Avon’s oils dry pretty quickly so this is a great option for summer if you don’t want to have that lotion-y feeling that using body butters/lotions to shave can give you. Skin So Soft Signature Silk Bath Oil
This is a great choice if you have super dry legs as you will not only be moisturizing but taking care of removing dead skin. Make sure to use a scrub that has a good consistency. I like the scrub that I use to shave with to be a little more liquid-y then what I use for my face. 100% Pure Body Scrub Coconut
