OK, I know this is for the girls, sorry boys! Who here shaves their legs? Most I’m sure. Who here has to shave at least once a day just to stay smooth? I’m one of those. My hair is not only course but dark, very dark. I shave every morning and by nighttime I have to do it again. It’s not fun and come summer time it’s down right painful. Between the razor burn and heat burn my legs feel like they are on fire!
So last night I went to Walmart and got some Nair. Now this stuff has never worked well for me but this was new stuff and I said WTH, I’ll try it. It came with this buffing pad that rubbed the hair off. I thought well maybe it’ll work. If you could have seen me jumping up and down as if I was on fire you’d think I had literally lost my mind. After I applied it and rubbed it off, my legs were on FIRE! I got out of the shower and tried drying them off, which felt like I was riping my skin off!!! I got lotion on them thinking that would cool them down. NO! My legs were now covered in red bumps and I was in so much pain I wanted to rip my legs off (because that would have felt so much better!)
WTH! Can someone please help me?!?! What do I do? I want smooth legs without waxing, that’s just too much money and the over the counter stuff doesn’t work too well! Is there an ointment for razor burn that I haven’t found? Is there another hair removal product that works better and won’t leave me in severe pain! I JUST WANT SMOOTH LEGS, is that too much to ask? UGH I’m sitting here right now and it has gotten better but the rash is still there and I’m sorry that just doesn’t look good nor does it feel very good when it’s 90 degree’s out!
So I googled it! I love google! It says to A) don’t shave up but down with the hair. I don’t know, that would leave stubble and I like smooth, however I wouldn’t have this horrible rash. B) soak your skin, easy enough. C) use cream or shaving oil, not soap. D) apply aloe vera after you shower. Also use a new razor every time. I think I’ll use mine more than once but I will try everything else. I practically bought out the store buying everything that had aloe or rash relief in it! THIS SUCKS! Sometimes I hate being a girl!
I know some of you have already gotten a good laugh from this the day it happened. Well JJ, I may take your little suggestion and someday refill all of your guys lotion bottle with Nair!!! See who’s laughing then!
