Like a lot of people I hate shaving my legs but I also love having smooth legs. Massive dilemma. I am also the clumsiest shaver which coupled with my fragile EDS skin that cuts and scars ridiculously easily means I have quite a large collection of shaving scars.
I have tried waxing but that takes my skin off with it, hair removal cream makes me blister & takes my skin off, I didn’t get on with an electric razor and I’m not sure about an epilator so that leaves good old fashioned shaving. I have tried a lot of different razors but the Wilkinson Sword Intuition Plus Hydra Soft Razor has to be my favourite.
It makes shaving so much easier by having a block of shaving gel attached to the razor which means you don’t have to fuss about with a shaving foam. Also means there’s no waste as you only use as much as you need. It also has moisturising properties resulting in super smooth legs after shaving. I have shaved with this razor for about 2 months now and I haven’t managed to cut myself with it yet although now I’ve said that I’ll probably end up cutting myself next time. It also has a chunkier handle than normal razors making it easier and comfier to hold.
The razor itself is pricier than normal bog standard disposable razors at £6.49 but I would definitely buy one again and for my fellow chronic illness fighters I would definitely recommend it for an energy saving and injury reducing way to shave. You get quite a lot of shaves out of it and you can buy a pack of 3 blades for £6.29. I would say it is worth every penny and I am definitely a convert.
