[Knock, knock, knock.] Hello?
Oh, hai! My name is Karen, and I’m here in your neighborhood today on behalf of the Inner Lazy Girls Coalition to spread the word about a Lazy Girls trick I discovered last night.
Do you have a second to chat about wayward leg hair?
You do? Great!
First, please tell me you’re not one of those lucky ladies like my mom who never, ever has to shave. Because if you are, I will pull your hair…
Totally kidding! There will be no hair pulling. This isn’t Jerry Springer circa 1995.
So, hairy legs. Last night while I was getting dressed for my Valentine’s Day dinner with El Hub, I slipped on my date night dress and realized — whoops! I hadn’t shaved my shins since last Sunday.
My hair and makeup were already done, so I wasn’t about to jump in the shower, and a sink shave with my usual EOS Shave Lotion was also out of the question because the bottle was empty (I think my husband has being using it on the down-low).
I looked around the bathroom and had a MacGyver moment when I saw this bottle of Suave Advanced Therapy Lotion ($5) sitting on the shelf.
“Hmm…” I wondered, considering the gigantic bottle in my hand. “Could I use this for an improv shave?”
Only one way to find out!
I slathered a thick layer on both legs, grabbed my razor and hacked away at the wayward hairs. When I finished, I rubbed off the excess lotion with a washcloth, and worked the amount that remained into my legs to moisturize them.
Voila! Smooth, silky legs, no shave cream necessary.
Well, thanks for your time. On behalf of the Inner Lazy Girls Coalition, here’s a solidarity *fist bump*.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
