    i have used baby oil before. another tip with it is to have a small stream of water running over the area where you are shaving. makes the oil slicker.

    this is a great tip. thanks

    Never tried this before, something new to look into, thanks. I use lotion, my legs aren't as dry as they would be normally. I really like the baby oil idea, I well try that one.

    Olive oil? What about vegtable oil? Olive oil is rather expensive...

    I use hair conditioner. Just a small amount works well and leaves my skin smooth.

    you really are only using about a Tablespoon Total for both legs, a little goes a VERY long way when using it for shaving. I add a couple drops of essential oil, usually lavender, but in the summertime I sometimes use rosemary if I'm going to be working in the yard with shorts on, as this not only alleviates shaving bumps & moisturizes, it also keeps mosquitos from dining on you.

    I use conditioner also. I usually use the cheapest I can get . I save the better one for my hair. Also a 88 cent bottle of conditioner last alot longer than a can of shaving cream. It doesn't give me razor burn. I have tried babyoil before but I don't like the film it leaves in the tub. It was having to clean the tub every time I shaved and in the summer that is too often.
