Help, what do you use? My legs are sore and spotty after disposable razor and shower gel so that's clearly not the way forward!

Bump please!

I use one of those expensive venus razors with the oil of olay soap bar thing on.

Hair conditioner instead of shower gel. Any cheap bottle will do.
For extra extravagance shower oil

A sharp razor

Lush body conditioner afterwards helps if you get dry legs.

I second hair conditioner- cheap Alberto balsam coconut because I like the smell!

Yes to hair conditioner.

I have a Lush solid bar conditioner I didn't get on with for my hair but it brilliant for shaving my legs.

I use a mens Gillette proglide razor and Sanctuary shower foam. Finish off with Nivea post shave balm.

I use the L'Occitane shower oil, and a men's razor.

I use a mens Gillette Mach 3 razor... beats the women's ones hands down.
I also (come spring) torture myself with an epilator a few times..then shave a few times to prevent ingrown hairs and after a few weeks my legs more or less give up trying to grow hair, so it's one epilation a week and an occasional shave!

I use a Venus razor with 5 blades and Gillette men's shaving gel for sensitive skin. Make sure the water is nice and hot before you shave

Any men's razor because they are always cheaper.

OK, men's razor and cheap conditioner on the shopping list. Thank you!

Baby oil - works very well. Gets really slippy. Careful!
