Safety razors can be used effectively for any body hair including legs. Some areas will present somewhat of a challenge like underarms and pubic hair but it can be done comfortably with the right safety razor and high quality double edge blades.
I’ve used and tested 6 different safety razors and double edge blades in the past year. I’ve found some brands to be spectacular and others not so good. I’ve used safety razors to shave my face, arms and legs. I don’t care to use one on my chest though. It’s a little tricky.
A good shaving soap should provide superior lubrication to assist the razor in sliding over your skin. It should also soften your beard and skin. And lastly, it should make your skin feel and smell fresh.
One of the best things I love about shaving soaps is…the way it makes my bathroom smell. And my face too.
