Shaving - Plainfield,IL
In the past my daughter has used Nair for hair removal on her lower legs and armpits. It works fine but is kinda messy and she really hates the smell. However, she is terrified of using a razor as she is afraid of cutting herself. I know when I started shaving, I used an electric razor. Do they even still make them for women? I have looked a little & haven't been able to find any. If not, do any of you know of any razors made for girls or that may be less likely to cause cuts? With summer coming, I am trying to find a better alternative for her. Thanks & Happy Easter!

I have used a men's triple head razor for probably 15 years. It is great!!!! No more cuts and the triple heads glide easily over the knees. No need to get a women's shaver.

Walgreens has a nice remington model. I saw someone suggested that cloth or whatever that is on tv...a friend tried it and it can be painful...

Venus is a wonderful razor. Instead of buying the shaving cream use conditioner(you can buy the cheapest) its cheaper, easier, leaves your legs smoother and lasts a lot longer.

Don't worry about women's electric razors versus men's. I learned a long time ago that the electric razors for women don't work nearly as well as the men's do. Braun is a good brand. Have her use a good moisturizer after shaving.

My daughter used to wax. I tried but could not do it. It lasts for a longer time. I have seen some razors that are not supposed to cut as easily beside the other razors in the shaving aisle.

Remington Lady Shaver Smooth & Silky and Lady Shaver Wet/Dry Electric Razor, you can order them both from Amazon.com . I'm 43 and Like Tyra Banks I've never had to shave my legs in my life and I couldn't imagine having to do that as a child. Wow. Under arms I do maybe twice a year or so and I use a lady shaver made by Lady Infinity which is suppose to last a lifetime and never get dull.

I just saw some electric razors for girls at Walmart. I'm not sure how well they work but they were mixed right in with the men's electric razors. We had to buy one for great grandma--85 y/o women who cant see should not be using a razor either! lol
I used the ones with the little soap bars around them. They are more expensive but they did reduce cuts and smelled good.
Once she cuts herself once or twice she will realize it doesn't hurt that bad. I know you can't tell her that though. :(
Best of luck!

might also look closer at creams, there are lots out there and i have seen foams too, and all different scents. maybe a different type might be less messy and smelly?

Yes my answer is the same. You can pick up an electric Razor at Walmart, KMart, pretty much any department store. Even some drugstores' sell them. They are easy to use. She may get a little nick but it isn't going to hurt at all. She probably won't even feel it until she sees' the bleeding. Good luck and happy shopping. Your daughter will be delighted!!
