I love my electric shaver. It is rechargeable. It is a remington model WDF-5000C. It is 2 shades of blue. It gets me very smooth. The trick is to make sure it is fully charged, clean, and press firmly. Also run it the opposite of the hair growth, which may mean many different directions on different areas of the legs. At first, it took me a while to get the hang of it. Now, it is faster than shaving the old fashioned way. I still have to do it every couple of days though. I usually rub jergens lotion on afterwards for a really smooth feeling. Oh, btw, I got mine for $20 at big lots. It is the same as the new ones I have seen for over $50, but apparently blue is not a popular color anymore.

In the past, I have had my legs waxed or done them myself. It is supposed to be good for 8 wks, but only lasts 4 for me. I did find the hair came in finer over time. I just don't have the time or money for waxing these days.

Thanks, Sandra. If you were using a razor, how often would you normally shave? Do you think the electirc gets as close as waxing (which I've never had done <g&gt?

I would have to shave every day to every other day normally. The electric gets almost as close as my razor. In fact, when I typed my reply earlier, I shaved. It is still very smooth. I can run my hand and feel not stubble. I have tried other electric shavers before, but did not like them. I really like this one. I will say the sometimes you may have to try a few different directions until you get it right.

As for waxing... When you get your legs waxed, it pulls the hair out by the root. Therefore you can go weeks w/no regrowth. It hurts a little and the first time your legs may have red dots for about 24 hours from where the hair was pulled out. The pain is not bad though. If you try the at home waxing, don't get the sugaring or glue strips or nair stuff. It does not work. I can't remember what I used. I will look when I am in the store next time and let you know. I bought the kind you can microwave or sit in hot water to soften. You then spread on a small section of your leg, apply the cloth strip, and then rip it out fast and immediately. Then rub with a warm rag to try to keep the red at bay. Most come with an after oil that is very soothing. The key is to keep the wax soft and pull it just right. It takes me about an hour or so to wax my own legs, which is why I don't do it anymore. Oh, btw, if you try waxing, put an old towel down so that you don't get wax on anything you like. And keep a warm rag for wiping your fingers.

OK, I have rambled enough. I truly am very happy with my remington, and dh says it is smooth as well. I also need to mention that I am very fair, so my hairs show very quickly.

OK, I am really shutting up now.

Thanks, Sandra. Think I will keep an eye out for that Remington!!! I appreciate all your input and I'm sure others do as well.

I HATE shaving! It's not fun at home and even worse in the RV - there's never enough room! But it's something that has to be done whether I like to or not...ugh!

I do the "old fashioned way" with the razor, but tried the electric years ago. Maybe they've improved them since then!

I've HEARD that the older you get, the finer the hair on your legs become....I'm still waiting!

<span class="ev_code_BLUE">Our shower is just big enough for me to shave in.... I am not saying it is easy but I can do it. As I get older I am sure this task will get much more difficult. I am just barely flexible enough now.

I have considered an electric shaver and will be interested to hear what y'all think about them. I have never used one..... </span>

My electric in college was OK, but I really like my remington. Don't forget, the trick is to press firmly and try multiple directions. I find that in some areas, I have to go back and forth and in circles. Still faster and easier than shaving. And no nicks and cuts.

Luckily, I have none to shave. As I have gotten older it has gone away. Never did have much.

when i was a kid, my mother told me not to shave as it would make my hair grow in thicker and blacker (don't you love old wive's tales?) so i didn't...and luckily enough, my hair is still pretty fine and short. i'm not a dress/skirt person so the hair that is there, i don't worry about - the only person close enough to see/feel it is my husband, and i told him, i'll wax/shave my hair (legs, underarms, otherwise) the minute he waxes/shaves his. so far, there are no razors or wax tubs in the house with my name on them...

Well I have to shave less frequently than when I was younger. Used to be every day but now, once or twice a week. I have never tried waxing, it sounds too much like torture. I just do the regular old shaver. I like the idea of an electric though. Have to look into that. The camper shower is tight but there is a little seat in there where I can put my leg up. I have to admit, I only shave below the knee now, for wearing skirts. Probably should shave the whole leg but I don't care as much any more.
