Does anyone use hair removal creams on their legs, rather than shaving or waxing? I can't shave any more because it makes me really itchy and I do get my legs waxed but you're supposed to leave it like 4-6 weeks between getting waxed I think, and it hasnt been that long, plus I can't really afford it. But I wanna know if creams are any good before I go spending money on them.
I find that if I have a nice ten minute soak in the bath and shave my legs using lots of soap, they come out nice and smooth and not itchy at all. But shaving them otherwise... I always seem to get goose bumps, which makes it extremely difficult to shave them properly and is actually quite uncomfortable!
I don't like creams so haven't got any recommendations on that score - sorry!
I find that a cream such as Nair does a great job. I use it on my arms, underarms, body(except intimate parts) and legs. It normally leaves me smooth for 6 - 8 weeks although I may repeat on my legs every 4 weeks in the summer
Ive tried Nair, and didn't like it. My sister in law had a bad reacton to it. I have a friend who uses that lotion that is supposed to make you be able to shave less...she said it took a while to see a difference but it did work well.
Maybe if shaving makes yo itchy you ned a better shaving cream ?
Ye, that's what happens to me, it might be goosebumps that causes all the irritation. I'm not a big fan of baths and the hot tap in my new flat doesn't really work properly, but I have done that in the past and I think it helped.
Thank you both for your comments, I'll try getting a new shaving cream and do my best to get a warm bath, coz usually I shave in the shower.
This is not exactly a hair removal cream, but it reduces hair growth over time. It is good for smaller areas like the face. It is called Vaniqua and you can get a prescription from your doctor or dermatologist. It's not terribly cheap, but one tube lasts me at least 6-8 months. I have used it for several years and it cuts down on the need for other types of hair removal on my upper lip and chin.
iv used veet a few times and hateeee it! > it made my legs feel itchy and sore i have the same problem when shaving in the shower but do agree that shaving in the bath really does work wonders. If you can stand the pain try a epilator I have one, and think their really good only when 'im feeling brave though!
