buying a women's razor(8 posts)

Is it time to bite the bullet and buy a women's razor for leg-shavin'? I've been using the same one I use for regular shaving (Gillete Sensor EXCEL) for the last year or so and there has to be a better way to shave without constant irritation. Are women's razors any different functionally, or is it just a marketing thing - make a silvery one for the fellas and a pastel one for the ladies?

Also, I nominate this for most effeminate post of the day.

My wife uses the men's razor with the triple blades. She says it's the best. It takes less passes to do the job which means less razor burn.

Buy the Schick extreme 3 razors. For both men and women and they work great. Nice masculine green color, too. =)
yup...these work great too...pretty much the same as Mach 3/4 nmColnagoFE

I bought some cheapy disposals, they have gray ones for men, pink for ladies, but other than that, I don't think there is a real difference. Not sure about the expensive ladies razors. I think the Mach 3 does the best job. Conforms to skin, takes less stokes, and less likely to nick. I use them to get me started (I let it grow out in the winter) and switch to the disposals once my legs are used to regular shaves. As far as your irritation I'd try different shaving creams/gels. Also, if you want too long between shaves, I think that makes the problem worse. Lastly, I usally have to put lotion on my legs post-shaving because they tend to dry out.

the string is in back. There is no difference between the blandes on women's razors and the blades on men's razors. The problem is that your beard hair is thicker than your leg hair, and you are shaving your legs with a microscopically nicked blade. Use a different razor, allbeit the same brand, and your problem . . . . er, this problem . . . .will go away.

Your other problem, as you appeared to recognize from your post script, is that you are slowly morphing into a woman. The good news is that in about 3 years, you won't need to shave your face at all.
