I have been using the Intuition razor for a long time but I don't know if they're making them cheaper or different or what because they don't work as well as I remember. So what razor do you use and does it get the job done? I would prefer a razor where I can buy new cartridges and not the disposable kind. Also, I would prefer it if I could find it at Wal-Mart. Thanks a bunch!

I personally use a mans razor... Shick Quatro because Ive found that it gives a closer shave and lasts through more uses. I tried the Intuition and the Venus but always broke out in little red bumps... I was trying to figure a reason of why that happens and I guess because guys razors are designed to be used on their faces which is considered a much more sensitive area then woman's that are designed for leg and armpit usage??!!

I use the Venus. The Mach 3 blades also fit on the Venus so if they are on sale/cheaper sometimes I buy those.

Another Venus user here -- I think it's called Venus Embrace.

I use those multiblade high end men's razors. You can also buy 'em at Costco or whatever discount superwarehouse you frequent. The shave is closer, less painful, and the blade lasts longer.

I use an epilator but I shave a few times between epilations since it helps to exfoliate so I don't get ingrown hairs. I have used the Venus with the cartridges for a long time, the one that is lime green and blue. I once tried a little pack of the disposable Venus Spa razors when I was on vacation. They really do what they say, you don't need any shaving cream or soap or whatever because the head of the razor is basically embedded in a chunk of soap. I have used men's cartridge razors and didn't find them to last any longer, and the handle style of the Venus is really perfect for shaving the legs, I have never dropped it. It comes with a caddy so you can keep a couple spare blades in the shower.

I hated the Intuition. My mom bought me one for my birthday a few years ago...I hated it.

I use the Venus Shimmer/Glitter or whatever. I just recently bought it last week.

I use the Gillette Fusion. Also, instead of shaving cream for my legs I use men's shave oil. No razor nicks and legs are soft and smooth!
