I just confessed that I’m a racer — an older one, yes — but I still shave my legs. I got in the habit back when I started racing, and I never stopped. It may be silly, but I still compete to the best of my ability, and I believe
doing what the top riders do helps my focus and motivation. It also makes treating road rash easier.
My usual shaving technique is using soap and water in the shower. I’ve also used shaving cream. But nothing I’ve tried has worked as well as Leg Lube. In fact, I like it so much, it might make a good gift for a non-roadie wife, even (if you don’t mind
You just squeeze a bead of Leg Lube down your leg, rub it around and commence shaving. Unlike soap and shaving cream, it stays moist. So even if you’re a slow-and-safe sling blade, you won’t have to reapply. In fact, this quality means you can even shave
without a shower. As long as you can rinse or wipe your razor off, you’re good to go. You just wipe your legs off when you’re done.
In addition to how easy it makes shaving, Leg Lube has a pleasant scent. According to the company it’s composed of aloe, spearmint, tea tree, rosemary, peppermint and eucalyptus oils — pretty amazing so much went into it, huh? And, even with my super-sensitive
skin, I had no issues at all.
Anything that makes leg shaving so convenient, fast and even pleasurable gets a big thumbs up from me.
