...A ladyshave...
Hi all,
I have very very fine and slow growing hair on my legs and underarms, which up until recently I hacked bits from my legs with tamed with a disposable razor.

I always seemed to cut my legs when shaving (probably because I always seemed to do it in a rush), so yesterday I decided to buy a ladyshave, to see if that would be better, it arrived today and is absolutely amazing!
It took under 5 minutes and there was absolutely no cuts or discomfort! (My mother also came in handy to check the back of my legs for any bits that I missed).

I thought I would share with you all in case someone was looking for something similar. Hope you're all well. X

What do you mean? What possible reason would I have to advertise something I bought on Amazon? I was sharing in case someone was looking for something similar. X

Thank you for that. Amazing that I've got to this age without discovering a Ladyshave.

As I read your post FH an advert for Phillips razors popped up on my screen.

I suspect these large companies have algorithms which search out key words, then they focus their advertising accordingly.

Mine too Nortsat hence the sigh

That's odd... it makes you wonder how they get this information. X

Do you know what TMI means?

I love my Ladyshave! Does anyone else remember the pink razors that you had to unscrew to put razor blades in? They were what we 'ladies' had to use before disposable razors. How dangerous were they? I still bear the scar.

Do you have a blog? I.e. Always highlighting things you've bought.

Tabbycat, they were called Nymph. They did pale blue and green too!

They're the best thing since sliced bread, aren't they?x

I've used one for years as I dislike having my legs waxed (ouch) found an epilator was agony to use shock

The battery was going last time so my legs are piebald but I'm not going anywhere.

Is it one with a rechargeable battery you have, or a 2x AA type? X

Now we're getting to the exciting stuff: batteries 😂
Doesn't get much better than this on a Friday night.

Lisagran Fri 07-Aug-20 21:59:13

Really, lemongrove - you think you can find somewhere more exciting than this?! Well, words fail me - this is the most (no The Most) thrilling thread I’ve ever read. Poteen? Pay, no stimulants needed on this thread, it’s just intoxicating reading......
