Baby Powder & Dry Shaving, Who Knew...

SG prefers shaving over waxing, I guess my pain tolerance level is low. Anyway I do have a point to make. There are days when I am dressed and running out the door (late to appointment) in skirt only to realize, yikes, hairy legs. As always, I will just resign to wearing pants for the day to save time. But, Savvy Sister recently shared a little tidbit with me about baby powder. Instead of using shaving cream, just pour baby powder on legs or underarms and shave as usual. It works wonder and my legs smell wonderful and silky soft without using one drop of water.

So do you have a quick shaving trick? Let's hear it!

  2. If I don't have enough time to wash my hear I put a lot of hair spray on my hair and then brush it away. Works for me, oiliness is gone.

  4. I use an electronic razor (I think I found it at Walmart; it's amazing) or veet/nair. I'm too afraid that I will cut myself to actually use a razor!

  12. Want to try this...how do you not make a mess? Having to sweep up powder off the floor might take longer than the shower or bath I was trying to avoid.

  13. tessa: I would shave over the bath tub or in the shower so all the mess would just be wash away next time you run the water.

  15. this may be tmi, but i hate shaving my legs and honestly haven't shaved since june - before my mexico trip... that being said, i've been blessed with being mostly hair-free so no, i don't have cactus legs. :)

    maybe the baby powder thing will make shaving more appealing since it sounds like i don't have to stand in the shower with my leg up the tub!

  16. It works, lol. I'm gonna go shave my junk (male here) since my woman shaved herself with it after a post on one of her modeling forums. It's so soft and sexy. A beuatiful and cheaper way of shaving.

  18. Dry shaving using baby powder works very well under your arms. I find it's a much closer shave, less painful and with no cuts. It really is better.
