That tip about getting a closer shave with going in all directions is amazing.

Previously I was just a "up" shaver

DuchessFanny Mon 04-Feb-13 15:32:42

i figured this out only fairly recently, it has changed my life (well my pits anyway ) grin

dexter73 Mon 04-Feb-13 15:39:31

I do that anyway (old news) you shallow armpit worrier.

ooh do share! i currently shave downwards - have I been doing it wrong confused

DuchessFanny Mon 04-Feb-13 15:49:13

I do down, then ... up feels like i get every single little sticky-out-every-which-way hair, its defo smoother anyway !

Would this work on other areas?

EPILATE woman grin

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Mon 04-Feb-13 21:47:55

oh yeah I do that and then sudocrem to make sure the skin is all lovely too grin

Oh yes, have always done that and it really does work. Think I read it in one of my mum's magazines when I was a teenager!

ooh sudocrem!! May try that tomorrow.

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Mon 04-Feb-13 22:09:51

it helps prevent razor burn.

I only use it at night before bed it really works smile

Shave shock
Epilate shock

Hot Wax is the way.
Yes you need to know the direction of hair growth but few things in life as satisfying as whisking those follicles out with a hot wax strip.

StinkyWicket Mon 04-Feb-13 22:15:05

I thought everyone did it? Also go from left to right smile

Or epilate which is MUCH better!

I've always shaved my pits in all directions. Does this mean I am cutting edge in the pit area?

<puffs out chest>

HanneHolm Mon 04-Feb-13 23:00:40

I'm not so hairy to do epilation. Plus am wuss.

Just swoosh swoosh

I waxed once - agony will not be doing it again .. quite like the sudocrem tip though !
