I've been too lax lately down below......

Does any other Man here trim their nipple hair?

I leave the upper body alone except for the nipple hair. I don't know why, but I find it distracting.

Or possibly:

"Feels great!"
"Less stubble!"

About $10 for a 4 pack. But each blade lasts me 2-3 months (shave every 4 days approximately).

That was me with trimming a full beard too (maybe three weeks/cartridge)

shaving every day I went to the old DE safetys again. Even the good quality razor blades are way cheaper than cartridges....of course you have to relearn how to shave with some care....can't just plow through stubble like with the multi-blade cartridges.

Mkay, had the day off yesterday and so after finishing everything else I hadda do, finished off with nice bath/shower and as much manscaping as possible in one day (which is to say, there ain't enough patience, time or sharp razor to finish the job in one sitting). Gotta finish later today.

I will say after checking back with the missus she clarified - skin lotion followed by shaving cream. Ahh....tried the two together, and it really made a diff.....will see if I am all jacked up in the few days tho.


You know, ordinarily, I'd think this was TMI........gotta love this thread

Next time I'm trying all of the tips here. Buying conditioner (like hair conditioner? I'm confused) and girly shaving cream. I'm still gonna use my razor (Gillette Fusion Power) because it's a nice razor. I might buy some lotion too. What kind of lotion? (I don't use lotion, on anywhere, my mom always tells me I need to use it on my face after I shower, but I never have)

I'm not gonna go against the growth this time I don't think. That has always caused me pain when I did it on my face, so I think the same applies to legs. Someone online said against the growth works better, but it hurts me. I guess I have tough hair.

Oh, and when I sleep, my legs feel wet against the sheets. It's weird. I feel like I'm sweating constantly even though it's completely dry.
Lotion, its worth every penny:

The Gillette Fusion razor is just too dang expensive. I use the Matrix3 razor which is the Walmarts store brand. Works just as gentle as the Mach3 only it's 1/3 less expensive. The cartridges are made by Personna so it's a good razor and not junk. Really gentle on the tender bits.

I was thinking of my armpits

really seems like a bad idea to use aluminum based antiperspirants on a freshly shaven skin.

warning, warning! now, I've never 'scaped with nair... but I remember it really sucking, and I'd have to leave it onlonger than directed- and I'd end up with a chemical burn, and still some hair.

Over the last few years, I've developed this 'thing' about body hair... really dislike it. But if I can't see it to trim it, oh, well...........

Arms/legs get done weekly, chest about 3x/year, just get lazy; pits and 'there' get the Conair beard trimmer as needed.

I'm waiting/hoping for some biochemist genius to come out with a hypoallergenic additive to bathwater that will just 'make the hair go away'. Once a month, soak for 10 minutes, go about your life. I'd submerge to my neck!

body hair chafing on or getting caught in clothing = bad

when I wear boots that go up to the ankle, it makes me shave my legs.

I thought its really harsh on the sensitive skin...?

I've heard that it has always turned out bad when used other places than the legs.
