    Maybe the people who can use those disposables have finer hair. I have to shave my legs every single day and my hair is on the coarse side. I know what you mean, NoDay, those daisy's can make you bleed.

    I started using conditioner instead of shave gel (or actually, instead of soap or shower gel since I'm cheap) a few years ago and it really does work as well or better. I always run out of shampoo faster than conditioner but like to buy my Costco size bottles at the same time, so this helps even them out too.

    Anyone have any good razor recommendations? After that I just want to suck it up and pay the price for the Intuition refills, but $20 for 3 cartridges is crazy.
    I just bought that same razor and had burn from hell on my legs and bikini line, my armpits were fine. I was really surprised that it gave me razorburn, since I have the Schick Hydro for men and it works great.

    You may have a point my hair is pretty fine other than a few rough patches.

    I'm a Venus user. For me it's the best razor I ever used. Very close and safe shave.

    Who remembers this one?! Go on, age yourself!

    I remember it!

    I have been doing laser hair removal which drastically reduced the hair on my legs but I haven't completed my treatments and there are still some patches of hair I need to shave. I've taken to using my husband's disposable Schick Extreme 3. They have the moisturizing gel strip, 3 blades and most importantly, the blades and cartridge thingy are flexible (not pivoting but flexible) which is what I really need for places like knees, behind the knees and underarms. I don't understand why they don't use the same flexible style on women's razors. And I don't mean those pivoting head things, which don't do shit. Those--I tried all the Venus kinds--actually left me with stubble, I hate them.

    *just googled and apparently they have a women's version of the same Schick Extreme 3 razor. Duh me.

    I caved. I went and bought a new Intuition razor and some refills (but bonus! Target had a deal if you buy 2 Schick items you get a $5 gift card!). My underarms are already way happier with me.

    I do the same. I got a spare handle to match the Bloke's Gillette razor and use the heads that he feels are past their best for shaving his face with. They're still plenty sharp enough to do my legs and underarms with.

    One thing I won't ever, ever use is Bic Sensitive disposables. I used one in an emergency (left my usual razor at the BF's and was getting ready to go out) and ended up with the worst razor rash ever and covered in cuts. My poor legs looked like I'd tried to walk through barbed wire.

    I use men's razors too. Gillette sensor 3 disposables. They work very well for me.
