Only shaving once a week?! I'd love that! You're so lucky!
I've tried Nair, too. It doesn't remove the bad hairs.
Jan, I do exfoliate before shaving, which does help for getting a close shave. But still, just half a day of smooth legs.
Stine, I tried the Sally Hansen years ago, but the 'wax' never got hard enough to adhere to the hairs. Maybe I just got a bad box? Sorry you have Hobbit feet! Apparently, I have Hobbit legs.
