    Ooh the hydro silk is supposed to be really good. I hear a lot of raves about it 🙂

        I’m Cj again, Jc went back where he came from! I distracted him with one of those men’s fitness magazines, he says he likes the articles but I think we all know what he likes in them.

    *guiltily raises hand* I don’t shave my legs as often as I should in the winter. Maybe every couple a weeks?? not really sure. The razor that occupies my shower is the intuition, that’s been my go to for years.the handle probably needs to be replaced, i think that it’s grody looking. but since my eye sight is shit, i can’t tell when i’m in the shower and forget to put my glasses on to check when i’m not.

    I love the intuition razor! I don’t know why but it is just easier to shave with this than going the extra step of using a shave cream/gel. I can’t explain it but it just is.

    The venus one, irritated my legs horribly. Which I found odd because I like the regular venus one.

      i really like the intuition too but for some reason my “soap” wriggles off towards the end of the razor use.

  • Ishah

    The Tropical Splash one looks nice, I like Schick Intuition razors. And I’ve been guilty of going a month during winter…. I’m a mother and live in jeans lol

      ishah ;-D you have an excuse you are prob busy with your kiddies ;-D! we forgive you hehe!

    I am a Schick Intuition girl. However, I can only use the ones for sensitive skin, otherwise my skin gets horribly irritated.

    • the Muse

      aw! I thank the gods daily I’m not sensitive, I’d be all kinds of crazy if I were :-/

    I loathe the intuition. It gave me really bad razor burn (ouch!) I recently tried the hydro silk and it was okay, definitely moisturizing, but I didn’t feel like it cut as close as the Venus.

    I hated the intuition. Found that I still needed some sort of shaving cream with it. Never really understood why they put so much product around it when it becomes useless after it wears down past the razor part, anyway.

    I just buy the twin blade ladies’ razors that have a lanolin strip and a push button to help clean between the blades. I find the product I use to shave more important than the razors themselves. The razor being new and sharp is the most important thing. If I paid even more for razors, I’d be worse about changing them out than I already am!

  • Swims alot

    I use the Venus.I found that the Intuition’s skin conditioner glob makes it hard to get a close shave.
    I unabashedly only shave legs during swimming season. I shave pits unless DH pleads me to let them grow. Eeeeew to me, but after almost 25 yrs of marriage I am glad that he is still hot for me. Thak the gods I have sparse hair these days lol

    I have always been a Schick Quattro lady myself, but for the last 3 years or so I only shave my arms. As in, forearms, not armpits. I have come to love my bodyhair. I have to take the hair off my legs in the deep of winter though, because wearing 2 pairs of thermal leggings/tights means the hair gets pulled around and the roots get irritated, so I wax once, and then I don’t touch my legs again for a whole year. I never worry anymore about “oh gee, I haven’t shaved this week, I’m not ‘allowed’ to wear shorts or a tank top in public, other women will think less of me” instead it’s just, I wear whatever I want regardless of the season, and it’s obvious that laziness isn’t the reason I have hair, since it’s all fully grown on purpose, and not just 4 day stubble. Yay for streamlining the hell out of the primping area of life. Way more time now to devote to my makeup and the hair ON my head 🙂
