I have a triple-blade razor with replacement blades delivered on subscription from:

It's fab!

I use Philips electrics shaver for underarms because I use the Lumea IPL treatment. I then use Gillette fusion for my legs, figuring out that men make razors for themselves and probably do a better job than they would for female products. I buy replacement heads on subscribe and save from Amazon.

Waxing for underarms. Hurts like hell the first time but it's life changing (might be exaggerating).

Thanks so much everyone ! Do you have to let your hair grow a bit before waxing?

I epilate.

The hair doesn't need to be as long as you think. A week growth is enough for me to be waxed.
It's honestly not as painful as you'd imagine. Take a couple of painkillers before you go.

Underarm waxing should be done with hot wax ie no paper is needed to remove it. It's less painful than strip wax.

I use a twin blade razor, no moisturising strip because they play havoc with spray tans, from bic.

Venus razor, or gillette or.... whatever was cheap on offer but stays sharp.

Cheap men's razors - they are better than the women's ones.

Not the ones with the safety wires, they are crap.

So much good advice. Thanks so much!

I just use a Venus razor but change blades fairly frequently. Don't get the ones with moisturising strips (like wax) they're useless!

I don't wax (apart from bikini line) as I don't like letting the hair grow long or the pain.
