I use conditioner as well.

That way, any hairs that I might miss are soft and manageable.

Shaving cream -- the old-fashioned stuff -- is good for taking grease stains out of laundry.

Gosh I've not used shaving cream for years. Always use body wash/shampoo.

One of my male friend says that soap even works better than shampoo.

I started using this just because I never remembered to bring the can of shaving cream into the shower. Now I only use cream if I need to do a quick below the knee shave in the sink, attractive huh! LOL.

I use both. I first shave with a disposable razor, then after my shower I go over my face and ears with an electric razor to get anything the blade missed. Been doing that for years and I get a closer shave this way.

Soap, yikes! If I use that, my body would dry and flake off :-/

I usually just use body cleanser and skip the shaving cream.

Regarding the electric razor comment, I never found one I liked, legs always felt like stubble after?

Junk! Takes twice as long and does half the job. Ok for kids with a little fuzz, but not men with a thick wire patch.
