Are you Au Natural?

When it comes to going hair free every girl has her own preference, whether its waxing, shaving, plucking or threading .
I am personally a good old fashioned razor girl, however, being a 2 year singleton means some times I would rather slip in to a pair of leggings than spend ages running a razor over my legs every other day. I don't need to look at my legs and I sure as hell won't be waving them around for anyone else to see.
For those all important nights out when I need to put on a pretty dress and a cheesy smile I will whack out the old Venus razor, but it pains the lazy girl inside me every little stroke I take.
Waxing is not an option. I do not do pain. So epilating is out of the question as well then. There was really only one thing for it.
May I introduce the Remington Lady Shave.  Quick, simple and pain free. Perfect. Or is it?


Remington explain…
Two foils for double the efficiency and smoothness, leaving skin silky with less irritation. Specially designed for the contours of the female body for a close shaving results. You can shave your legs and even sensitive areas like the underarms and bikini line quickly and conveniently.

I have only used this a couple of  times but already my dream of super smooth legs in seconds are shattered. Although it covers a bigger area than the conventional razor I feel like I have to go over my legs just as many times. I’m not sure whether it is just me being over cautious but I also run the electric razor over my legs a lot slower than a regular disposable, therefore taking even longer than normal.
Another thing I would say about the razor is that it doesn’t particularly fit the contours of the female body as well as it would claim. I am yet to use this under the arms but I suspect it would be fairly easy to use however the bikini line is significantly more difficult.
On the plus side it can be used wet or dry which means I can sit and watch tv while shaving my legs making it slightly less boring and time consuming.
The instructions state the foils will need replacing every few months, depending on how often you use it, and that they are to be purchased through Remington however  they are yet to put the refills online which is a slight worry.
 I feel this razor may become a close friend of mine as I get used to using it more. Once I have got the hang of the angles and speed it will become an altogether faster process.
If like me you are allergic to pain then the Remington Lady Shave may be the answer. At around £25 it works out a lot cheaper  than constantly having to buy new blades.
It wont give the super smooth result that waxing gives, and it may not be the second shave I was looking for but it is definitely going to replace my Venus.
