Sexy Legs For Summer

It's time to show some leg, ladies! I love warm weather... love, love, love. I'm not the biggest fan of having to shave my legs - it's such a mundane task - so I've come up with a great quick, easy and pain-free shaving process.

Here are 5 Products for Smooth Legs:

1 - Exfoliator - So important to get rid of all of the dead skin before shaving. This also loosens the hairs so that they shave away faster and easier (and don't cause ingrowns). You can really use any exfoliator, I like Ole Henriksen's African Red Tea Exotic Body Scrub because it's extrememly gentle (don't scrub too hard before a shave --- shaving will also exfoliate on its own!) and has an all-natural fragrance. $65.00

2 - Venus Spa Breeze - by far, my favorite razor on the market. It's surrounded by a shaving cream bar. You don't need to use additional shaving cream (although I do), and it curves easily to remove hair without nicks! $10.99

3 - eos Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream - This is a natural-smelling alternative to those synthetic creams. I'm obsessed with the Pomegranate Raspberry and Vanilla Bliss flavors. Doesn't lather, but coats legs marvelously with a cream for a smooth shave and leaves them moisturized with shea butter, aloe to soothe and vitamins C and E. Also, cheaper than those other perfumey ones. $4.99

4 - Venereous Mountain Mist - It's like an aftershave but for us ladies. The spray is so soothing thanks to the aloe vera, witch hazel and silk proteins. I'm obsessed with using this spritz directly after I shave - it feels like it locks the follicules and leaves legs stuble-free for longer (plus, it's got a very pleasant, non-obtrusive scent). $12.95 for 4 oz

5 - PFB Vanish - Like Tend Skin only less vomit-inducing smelly. It's a roll-on for "vanishing" those stubborn ingrown hairs; so easy, works wonders! (Great for those intimate areas too, like waxing down south). $13.95 for 2 oz

Thanks so much for these tips!

I've always wondered - how many uses do most disposal razors provide?? Use once or twice & toss??

I'm a waxer (by profession & preference) and my best advice is after using a less vomity version of tend skin (lol) use a baby diaper rash creme like aveeno's or burt's bee's. It totally soothes the skin and voila - no ingrowns or red rashy patches!

Great, now I have to hunt down the EOS shave cream- it's adorable and sounds yummy and fantastic! Apparently, there's one Target within a 50 mile radius that carries it. Road trip!

Thanks for the shout out about Venereous products again...and so pleased you are still as addicted to them as we are lol.

We're hoping to add some products to the line in the coming months...I'll be sure to let you know when we do!

@Anon - My disposables rarely last more than a couple shaves. They get dull extremely quickly. I also find that they're not the best for a close shave either...
