Get Smooth Legs at a Great Price + Find 5 Nifty & Thrifty Shaving Tips & Tricks #ShaveSmarter

In the chronic illness world there is this thing called The Spoon Theory thought up by Christine Misrandino, a Lupus sufferer. I may be a Lymie and suffer from several other ailments but this theory stretches beyond just one set of chronic illness sufferers and encompasses us all; kind of like an unwritten language amongst all us 'spoonies.'

Ultimately the theory is there to explain to normal people a little bit of how an ill person feels on a daily basis and how we manage our 'spoons'--on any given day we may have more (or less) spoons to spend on day-to-dad activities like waking up, brushing our teeth, cooking food, showering, and even shaving.

Now that you know a little about the theory, you'll understand when I say most of the time I barely have spoons to spend on showering to keep myself clean so shaving is a very rare luxury. Sadly I'll go months without being able to shave because I physically just....can't.





And let me tell you, sporting those Chewbacca legs constantly, even wearing pants to conceal them, wreaks havoc on one's self esteem.

Thanks to ShaveMob, at least part of my difficulties are solved!

ShaveMob is a flexible monthly subscription service for men and woman who are tired of paying for overpriced razors just to be able to do something that's as necessary as brushing your teeth or showering. Starting as low as $8.99 per month, you can find the perfect shaving fit for you and your hairy self...oh wait, that's just me.

You're able to choose your preferred razor and supply as well as save up to 70% off what you would be spending in stores. Not only that but my favorite part is your whole supply comes all at once, not once a month, which saves you on shipping and packaging.

Running low on your supply already you shavetastic hairless beast you? Changing and re-ordering your previous order is simple and easy!







While it still is difficult for me to physically shave and I still go months without sleek and smooth-baby-butt legs, I can say that ShaveMob razors did help the process along when I do have the energy to shave from time to time.

Their razors are super easy to use and give you a really nice close shave that makes you want to dance around after the deed is done.

And believe me I did!

I also love the fact that your whole supply comes in the mail at once; you can shave until your hearts content, or at the very least you're hairless from head to toe (if that's what you want to do, no judgement here). Since I don't do it often this 3 month supply I received is going to last me a LONG time.

As always customer service is a big part of what makes a company successful and their customer service is top notch! Seriously, being able to converse with a company that's kind, courteous, and cares about the welfare of their customers is and will always be a welcome and appreciated experience.

Now in the spirit of hairlessness, here are some nifty, thrifty, and natural tips to help you along when it comes to shaving!






1. Save money--since we're saving money on razors, why spend what you saved on shaving cream? Just buy a bottle of hair conditioner! A bottle will last you quite awhile and the conditioner will leave your legs feeling silky soft when you're done.


2. Cut yourself shaving?--just dab a little raw honey on the cut to help speed up the healing process! Raw honey naturally has antimicrobial properties that help that cut from getting infected. Make sure it's raw or Manuka honey otherwise you won't get the healing benefits.


3. Keep that razor sharp--want to save even more money and keep that razor twice as long? Run the blades along the legs of a pair of old blue jeans. It'll help sharpen the blades and keep that razor working just a little bit longer.


4. Skin brushing--invest in a nice natural-bristled brush and start skin brushing daily. Not only does it help detour those pesky ingrown hairs but doing it the correct way will help circulation of the body and reduce the look of cellulite. Just for that I'm sold!


5. Moisturize--after your legs are all shaved and smooth as a baby's bottom, make them even smoother with a mixture of coconut oil and your favorite essential oil scent. Just take a little bit and rub it in all the way up your legs. It's okay if you keep going back for a little bit more; it takes me a few tries to get the whole leg covered.

I know exactly what you're talking about. Fortunately though my hair doesn't grow that fast anymore... one or two there or one or two there! When I do find them though it's depressing. :( This sounds like a great product... looks like mama is going to look into this one. Thanks for sharing sweety! Miss you! God Bless and you're always in my prayers! Be healthy. Be happy!

Ellen said...

I've used the honey trick on shaving nicks and it really does work. Thank you for sharing your story. It helps others who are going through the same thing.

Liz Mays said...

I didn't know about that honey trick. That's super clever. Those razors really did the trick!

Jennifer said...

A sharp razor is key. I used to try to stretch out my razors to save money, but that just ended up giving me razor burn. Blech.

Masshole Mommy said...

I never knew that about raw honey on the cuts, but I am going to try that.

Brenda Kight said...

I will definitely be trying the Honey on a cut, I had no idea. Thank you for sharing your awesome tips.

Cathi Crismon said...

Even after all these years ... I always need good shaving tips!

Marcie W. said...

I am pretty lax when it comes to shaving my legs in the winter, but thankfully the hair is fine and grows quite slowly, so it is never truly noticeable. I had no idea you could sharpen your razor at home!

Dayne said...

I didn't know that honey could help with cuts! Totally trying that trick!

Gwendolyn M. said...

Thanks for sharing these great tips. In the winter, I am bad about shaving my legs regularly.

Chantal Bernard said...

I have also been known to rock the chewbacca legs for the same reasons. I love these tips - I couldnt tell you the last time I bought shaving cream as I always use conditioner.

Shelley Zurek -- Still Blonde after all these YEARS said...

I always struggle with the old, is it sharp...isn't it sharp? Never know exactly when to replace. Then one day I cause my self under arm pain and then I know.

Kristi C said...

Great tips. I really love the honey tip and the razors look awesome. I love having nice smooth legs. Sarah, Must Have Mom

Florentina said...

I love the honey trick, that is pure magic. It really works !

Dinner then Dessert said...

I've been so busy lately that I hardly have time for shaving either! Thanks for the tips!

OurFamilyWorld said...

These are great tips. I didn't know about the denim trick. I have to try it.

Janis Brett Elspas said...

Thanks for all the great shaving ideas. I didn't know you could extend the life of your razor by rubbing it on blue jeans -- I'm going to have to try that.

Jaredamy said...

This made me realize how lucky people who are in full health have it. I am sorry that shaving causing you so much pain. I am glad however that you found a service that is helping to ease the burden.

Jenn Mitchell said...

Great tips. You've got guts showing your before photo. I usually hide mine until they are shaved. LOL! I am never sure when to replace my razor.

Becca Wilson said...

Thank you so much for the tip! I will also be looking into this company :) Anything that makes shaving any less of a hassle than it already is would be perfect!

Terra Heck said...

I like that tip about using honey to soothe a cut. Will have to try it next time I knick myself with a razor. I never use shaving cream and instead use body wash when I'm shaving.

Christy Garrett said...

I am super glad that I'm not the only female with "man legs". I haven't shaved in months. I know I need to do it but with back problems it's just tough to do it.

mail4rosey said...

It sounds great to me. I had a hard time shaving when I was recovering from a surgery, so I can definitely relate to those times you really just 'can't.'

Journeys of The Zoo said...

I shave my legs as often as you do. Partly because of all the problems associated with it. However, after reading your 5 tips, the first 4 I'd never heard of, I'll be better prepared in the future. Thanks for sharing!

Besos Sarah.
