So, I have only ever had 2 razors. Both electric, I haven't been shaving that long. But any ways, I have had the razor I am using now for probably about 6 and a half months, a little before Christmas. It is starting to do what the last one did which was grab in skin and bite it which is really painful. It does it every five to ten seconds and leaves streaks and bumps of irritated skin. I keep them clean and charged and with fresh batteries but they always do that anyways. Even when I change the actual razor inside it still does it!! So anyways, I was wondering if they usually do this or if something is wrong, like I am not taking care of them right. Or is there anything I can do to fix this? It's not that hard to buy a new razor and everything, but if money doesn't have to be spent it is better. So thank you in advance, I really appreciate all the answers :) And by the way I think the brands where remington, and, darn it just had it. A different brand, if that matters- So yeah, thank you in advance, you guys always know what to do :)
Oh, and don't know if this is the right section, sorry-
When I was young, like early teens, I used an electric razor and had the same problem. I don't think they put as much energy into making nice electric razors for women as they do for men... My advice keep taking care of them like you are (i'm not sure how long they are meant to last but I'd say a year) and keep your legs exfoliated and moisturized especially before you shave. I always get the best manual razor shaves with no irritation when I do this... You'll want to put lotion on your legs daily and use a body scrub and loofah or a pumas stone and exfoliate every time you're in the shower. This will polish your legs from dried, dead skin that can cause your razor to lag and the hair to become in grown.
See if that helps but if you're still having issues it might be time for a new razor :P
Oh, also I like to use Skintimate shave cream (vs gel) because its like body butter and makes your legs super soft. And remember to put lotion on after you shave! Hydrated legs are happy legs XD
I use cheap Barbasol shaving cream on my legs because it's more fluffy and seems to help with irritation, also I use a mens electric razor because I think girl razors don't work as well. I haven't had any irritation or problems since I switched razors over 5 years ago so maybe try that.
And I agree always lotion up right after your shower while your pores are still open, this helps lock the moisture in and keeps you from getting that nasty black hair follicle leg look.
