Stuff I Love…Grooming Edition

on March 19, 2015

I once ran a pair of support hose on my razor stubble.

I know – you kind of choked there, didn’t you?

Let’s start off with a couple of qualifiers about this post, shall we…

  • If you don’t shave your legs or underarms, this post is not for you.
  • If you’ve never dealt with an ingrown hair, this post is not for you.
  • If your hair grows so slowly that you can get by with (maybe) shaving once a  week because nobody would notice if you didn’t, this post is not for you.
  • If you are at home with the furry feel, then this post is not for you.
  • If you’ve never got up from bed, in the dead of night to shave your legs because the stubble was either (a) causing your sheets to pill or (b) stripping the skin off the hubs simply by rubbing your legs against him, then this post might not be for you.

Ladies, it’s a sad fact that we have to de-fuzz; it’s a PITA and it isn’t permanent unless we spend a godawful amount of cash on laser removal.  And even then.So let’s face it, shaving is a necessary evil if we are to maintain an even remotely ladylike veneer.  I don’t care what you say – hairy legs and pits are not ladylike.  My mother said so.  Amen.  The End.  But I’m here to share two of my favorite tools of the trade which can make things a little easier.

Shave Secret

Here’s the first one – Shave Secret©. I loooooove this stuff. You use a couple drops – really just drops and it works amazingly. See, part of the problem, the thing that often leads to stubble and rashes and ingrown is “drag” – your razor dragging and pulling on your hair. Shave Secret© eliminates the drag, so you can shave easier and smoother. It lasts, like FOREVER and the essential oils smell wonderful.

Tend Skin

Secondly is Tend Skin©. This stuff is absolutely necessary to prevent/treat ingrown hairs. Pricey? You betcha and worth every stinkin’ penny.


I’m not plugging these for any remuneration, but just because they work and summer’s coming and you can’t hide forever in your woolies.

    I’m guessing Velcro legs aren’t your thing 😀

    I am so glad that bears don’t have to go through this.
