Why I stopped waxing and started shaving again

If you watch my stories, you’ll probably remember that monthly “need to wax my sasquatch legs” appointment I’ve had since February. I started waxing because I was so tired of constantly dealing with stubble and razor burn. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of self tanner on razor burn. And, since I typically shave right before tanning, I consider myself somewhat scarred from the many times my legs felt like they were on fire after shaving. So, I gave up shaving and started waxing!

What I loved about waxing is that I didn’t have to deal with razor burn, rarely got ingrown hairs and the hair took a solid 5-10 days to start to reappear. If you had told me last Spring there was a razor out there that could do pretty much the same thing, I’d have laughed. Truly, I thought spending $100/month on my wax membership was the only answer.

So when my friend Taylor texted me telling me I “had” to try this $9 razor I was skeptical. But also curious – I mean how often do your girlfriends text you about needing to try a razor, lol! So I gave it a try, very quickly cancelled my wax membership and haven’t looked back since. This little $9 razor not only gives me NO razor burn or ingrown hairs, it keeps me smooth for 4-5 days. And even then, I have only a mild stubble. With a traditional razor, I could feel stubble almost instantly because the shave was never close enough!

The Billie razor is made for and by women. That means it’s designed by gals who know a thing or two about needing to get the closest shave. It also costs a fraction of the price as drugstore razors (did you know women’s razors are typically 10-15% more than mens?!) and is made from quality ingredients. The five blade razor is encased in charcoal shave soap to help the razor glide over your skin (AKA – NO razor burn!). And, it’s made with all natural ingredients – no parabens, sulfates and it’s gluten free! I’ve mentioned before the harmful effects parabens and sulfates can have on the hair on your head. But, I never stopped to think that these could be in my razor leading to further irritation.

Let’s chat about price! I mentioned that the Billie razor is less than your drugstore one – much less. For $9 (+free ship!) you get a razor, mag(net)ic wall holder and two 5-blade cartridges. Once you sign up to receive your razor, you can select how frequently you want replacement blades. Billie will then deliver FOUR blade cartridges for only $9! You can cancel or skip a shipment whenever you want! I mean, ladies, $9 is the price of 1.5 Starbucks’ coffees. And, if it stops razor burn + keeps my skin smooth for 4-5 days, it’s really a no brainer!

I also picked up the Billie lotion and shaving cream! The shaving cream is heavily concentrated so you only need a little, and it helps the razor glide over your legs. It’s also very hydrating. You know that feeling when you get out of a shower after shaving and need to take a second bath just in lotion to avoid the alligator skin? Yeah, not gonna happen with the Billie shaving cream. But, in case you live in the North like me, they do have a body lotion that works wonders for our dry skin in these cooler months!

So, once a week (yes once) you can find me shaving with my new BFF, Billie! Here’s to being smooth ladies!
