 @Annie Tomlin haha, you are quite right. I try not to stress too much over it. Thanks!

 @Sadhie Waxing at home is definitely a challenge. I used to do it until I overheated the wax and walked around with little bits of dried wax on my knees. Hang in there — at the end of the day, it's only hair, and the world will not end if your shins have a little stubble. :)

 @Annie Tomlin I've tried waxing at home, but it hurts too much and the results are sub par. Depilatory creams don't work at all (I am Indian and have bristly dark hair). So for me too, shaving is easiest/cheapest so far, though with little pay off.

 @Sadhie Have you ever tried any other hair removal methods? I have, but for the most part, shaving's the easiest for me.

here is another tip: use unscented body wash, body wash is made to make your skin soft why not use it on your legs for shaving, i'd like to shave my legs after i exfloliatated my whole body and then shave while i'm in the shaver less mess.

Great tips. I always "warm up" my legs by soaking and exfoliating before too. And I think hair conditioner is better than shaving cream for me. Foam doesn't get in the way and the razor glides smoother. Then I pat dry and apply lotion...so I pretty much follow your routine there, haha. However, no matter how I shave or with what, I get prickly stubble in less than 12 hours. It is so annoying!!!
