This is something I have yet to attempt! I mean I don't think there is nothing wrong with it but my fellow local rednecks, well I will be called all sorts of not so nice names, lol. However, I got them to stop making fun of me for wearing bike shorts... I just started wearing ones that had wild colors ;) they got the drift and left me alone, >_<

I don't know if I'd like shaving though -- anyone tried something like nair?

    Yeah, I was doing the full works until I broke my foot. I really liked it. It was kind of naughty, I guess, and awfully smooth. I recommend, Tone. ;)

    I was just shaving once a week. This is now only of historical interest because I quit when I broke my foot on account of feeling sorry for myself and I haven't done anything like that since and then it later transpired that a preference was expressed for how it had become.

    I thought it worth resurrecting this thread if only to discuss aftercare a little more, now that summer has reached our part of the world.

    One thing I learned more recently was to scrub really hard afterwards with a mitten or whatever, doing a proper ex post facto exfoliation. That prevents any of those ugly red spots one sometimes gets in hotter weather.

    This is, of course, very drying for the skin, so I apply 100% aloe vera gel to the whole area and let it dry to a smooth shine. This is a slightly expensive approach to aftercare but it is very effective for the skin and only needs to be done once after shaving.

    I've been doing a bit of an experiment this season. For the first time I tried using an electric Norelco razor. I thought it might be interesting to try one leg with the Norelco, and one leg with a blade, for comparison.

    What I found was fairly consistent with what I already knew:
    Blades shaves closer than electrics. But...

    12 to 24 hours later, and there's really not that much difference in either leg.

    So I tried one more variation:
    I've been shaving the top part (above the knee) of both legs with a razor, because it's really quite easy to do in the shower with just some soap and water, and I prefer the extra-close shave in the region that makes contact with bike shorts. But bending over in a shower to reach the lower leg has never been good for my back. So I've been saving the lower leg and the ever-troublesome knee region for the electric. I can perform this easily and comfortable while sitting on my bed, or in a chair with my leg elevated.

    So far, I'm happy with the results, with no annoying razor cuts to my knee.

    The face, however, only gets the blade. Can't stand the feel or the results of the electric on the most conspicuous real estate.

    Carry on... :P
