Pinning the facts on shaving with Baby Oil

Bookmark and Share

So I have to admit that I am addicted to everything about Pinterest. I have so many different”boards” from each category. Pinterest is for sure my way to unwind and de-stress during the day. I have a friend who just posted something hilarious the other day about Pinterest and how these people tried to  re-create some pins and well, lets  just lets say they didn’t come out as well as hoped for.  (I will attach the link at the bottom). This made me think about how many of us try something on Pinterest and fail or maybe haven’t tried it but thought about it. Well this morning I tried something off my “health and beauty” board. And I want to share with you my results, Shaving with baby oil (gel).  To my surprise I loved it! johnsons-baby-oil-gel-715240-1

I have read two different pins, one said to use baby oil the other said to use baby oil gel. I tried the gel and have to say It’s very weird how it feels, kinda greasy and the water repels right off your legs. You do not need shaving cream but I find you do need to clean out the razor a couple times because it kinda gets gunked up with the oils.

Another benefit to using the baby oil or gel, it leaves your legs amazingly smooth and hydrated. I didn’t even add any moisturizer after!

Since I shaved this morning my legs are just as smooth as they were when I stepped out of the shower. I think I LOVE it.

For even better results keep exfoliating at least once a week with a sugar or salt scrub. I prefer sugar since salt can sting a little. Exfoliating will help slough off old skin and help prevent ingrown hairs.


Good Luck and I would love to hear feedback from others on this.  Stay smooth!

      Everyone will be different but mine lasted about a day to two days (which is really good for me, I tend to have 5 o’clock shadow on my legs by the end of the day) But the other benefit is the moisture from the oil that helps with the winter and the drying cold air on your skin. I found that if I shave with a new razor with regular shaving cream one day then the next use the baby oil or gel, alternating then I get more use out of my razor. The oil/gel did tend to clog razor. Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions or your personal feedback on this!
