Ladies, Help Me Out

So here's the deal... I've been using a Gilette Mach 3 razor for years to shave my legs.

Lately? I get out of the shower and find myself with razor burn... and when I put lotion on my legs like I always do post-shower, I can still feel stubble.

This happens even when I use a brand new razor.

Very annoying.

So I'm looking to switch to something new since this one is suddenly just not performing. Razors are expensive, so I hate to trial and error it.

So please help me out... tell me what razor works for you. Any insight on why you think it works well would be appreciated. I shave often this time of year since I'm in my running shorts pretty regularly, so it's important that I find something that will give me a nice, smooth shave.

Help please!

I use that razor too and I have never had that problem. Weird but good luck! :)

I just got a new razor - the schick quatro. I love it! I see $4 off coupons for it often in the Sunday paper. I haven't gotten razor burn yet and no stubble.

Ok, so I use the Intuition razor and I LOVE it. Mainly because it saves me time and money because you don't have to use shaving gel. I've used it for over a year now and havent had any problems with razor burn or stubble.

I use the Gillette Venus Embrace. I always get a nice smooth shave and no razor burn.

Hmm, I use just a plain old razor.

I have been using the BIC soleil Razor for years and it really works well. The razors last a fairly long time and they give a clean shave!

I use the schick quatro also and like it!!

I like the Venus razors. They shave real close and have a nice cartridge that is contoured to fit all your curves. Every time I try something else I'm disappointed and always go back to the Venus :-)

I use the Venus throwaway-ables. I use one for a few weeks then ditch it. I love them. I think there is aloe or something in the razor. You should check them out.

I use TONS of lotion because of my job. Eucerin is the BOMB as well as Aquaphor by Eucerin. That really helps moisturize my legs and protect my skin. Let me know if you have any more questions!
