What Kind of Shaving Products Do You and Your Family Use?

Hello Neighbors!

I was just wondering what kind of shaving products you and your family use.  I mean each member of my family seems to have a slightly different routine and they use different products.  The older girls like to use shaving gels, usually with a moisturizer in it.  They each have their own.  My younger two girls are shaving now and one of them uses a shaving cream.  They often apply a moisturizing lotion afterward.

My husband only shaves his neck and he uses a disposable razor with shaving cream and sometimes a gel.  My oldest son uses an electric razor we bought him after he started his job.  He finds this much easier to use as he shaves daily.  My younger son has a unique razor as it charges with a USB cord if needed.  My daughter found it for his birthday.  Both boys use a moisturizer or after shave when they are done shaving.  Sometimes when they both shave near the same time, you do not want to enter their bathroom.  It ends up smelling pretty strong.

I use a shaving gel with a moisturizer.  I have a tendency towards dry skin, so shaving always dries it out even more.  When I was in high school I tried some of the hair removal lotions.  You know the ones you apply, allow them to sit a short time and then wipe them off.  These worked pretty good, but now that my skin is more sensitive I really don't want to use them anymore.

Now, I must say, when I started writing this post I it made me wonder when women actually started shaving and why.  Not so amazing to me is that it was due to fashion in the early 1900's when sleeveless dresses became popular.  That is when you started seeing ads for women's razors and such.  And I assume the same thing happened with shaving legs as skirts and dresses began to be worn shorter.  it was funny because even the word "armpit" was considered vulgar at that point in history.

I will make a confession here and tell you, I can understand not wanting to shave your legs, or at least not as often. I am sure there are hygienic reasons for shaving the armpits, but I don't see a health reason for shaving the legs.  What women will do to be in fashion has often amused me and I guess this is just one more area where fashion dictates.

What do you, my neighbors think?  Do you have any special techniques you use for shaving?  Special products maybe?

See you later At the Fence!
