Expensive shaving foams/gels/creams

Submitted by Anne

Instead of buying expensive shaving foams/gels/creams for shaving legs, bikini area and underarms, use talcum powder. Just put a about a tablespoon of talc in the hand and rub it over the area in question, then use the razor as normal. The talc creates a silky smooth surface which the razor glides over and I found that the the little "nicks" and small spots that bleed profusely are very much minimised by using the talc method. Finish off by rinsing the area and then use a moisturising cream. This stops any redness developing. To keep the razor clean during the process, just keep wiping it on some damp toilet tissue.

I have found this to be a great success.

talc works when you're in a rush and haven't time to get your legs wet etc. but it does hurt and leaves a type of friction burn/rash. i always shave using conditioner on my legs/underarms/bikini line. it works so much better then shaving gels and leaves your legs super soft
