Shaving with baby oil?

post #1 of 59
Thread Starter 
I was at my mom's house last week and in her shower, there was a bottle of baby oil. I asked her why she had it in there and she said that a friend of my sister's had recommended it to her when she shaved her legs. I was intrigued so I used it the next time I showered and O..M..G! My legs and arms (yes I shave my arms cause I hate arm hair) are so freaking smooth. I didn't have to use a lot of oil. I usually lather with body lotion afterwards and I didn't feel like I needed it this time around. So last night when I was grocery shopping I bought a bottle of my own.

Anyone else use this?

No..but I am definitely intrigued! Do you think the gel baby oil would work just as well?

I wouldn't see why not. If you do try it let us know. You will keep feeling yourself up cause you are so smooth and soft.

I am not sure. I am pretty sure its safe since it is used for babies and their skin is more sensitive.

Re: Shaving with baby oil?

I swear by it. I thought my cousin was crazy at first when she said to try it. Oh my gosh, after the first time I was hooked.

I hate, hate, hate body hair and I am a frequent shaver. My skin suffered for it because it would get soooo dry. Well, I don't have to worry about that now--my skin is left silky smooth and ultra moisturized.

I have been using it for the past year and a half and haven't noticed any skin problems (clogged pores, etc). My legs can be really sensitive at times and razor bumps used to be a problem. Since using the baby oil, no more bumps!

Re: Shaving with baby oil?

Thanks for the tip Marisol! I've been using the gel baby oil on my legs after I shower and it makes them so soft. I never thought about using the oil to actually shave. I bet it would be unbelievably smooth! I'm all excited to try this tonight, lol

Re: Shaving with baby oil?

I'll have to try this! Thanks for the tip! I'm bad, I usually just use soap and if I'm feeling really motivated I'll use a shave gel.

Re: Shaving with baby oil?

Okay I just got done shaving with the baby oil gel. I like how smooth it makes me, but there's one thing I didn't like...it clogged my razor with globs of goo and hair, so I had to keep scraping it out. I'm thinking this may be because I used the gel, and its a thicker consistency than straight baby oil. So next time I'm trying the liquid kind. Also (I'm sure most people already do this, but in case you don't usually, like me) be sure to spray your tub down with a cleanser afterwards so the oil doesnt coat it and make you slip next time you're in there. I am happy with the results though and I'll update on when I use the liquid version. Thanks Marisol! My legs are happy, lol

Yay! I am glad that you liked it. I guess the gel would be a thicker consistency than the oil itself. I am glad that you liked the end result.

Re: Shaving with baby oil?

Alright dammit! I'll have to get some and try it! So, consider yourself lucky Marisol because normally I won't use anything other than my Skintimate Shaving Gel! As for arms and shaving, I hear ya girl! I used to do it too, but I quit. Got tired of that "burning/prickling" sensation when I was cold and had nothing there! LOL! That HURTS!

Re: Shaving with baby oil?

Okay, I want to try. But one thing scares me, does it make the razor slippery or anything, and I mean when the blade touches the leg. I'm scared it will slide and then cut. Lmk, as I'm in need of either that or shave gel today!

Re: Shaving with baby oil?

Wow! Any updates from folks who have tried this? I'm thinking about it!!

I don't use a lot so the oil but it didn't make the razor slippery or anything. It glides along your leg.

Re: Shaving with baby oil?

That makes so much sense! My husband's shaving routine includes oil before his shaving lather. I gotta buy me some baby oil now!

Re: Shaving with baby oil?

I always use oil to shave with, either baby oil or whatever body oil I have in the shower.
