That equals 72 days of your life spent on leg hair.
It’s absurd, but the alternative of donning hairy legs is equally unappealing, right? Allow me to introduce you to my life hack which takes only 5 minutes, once per week.
If you’re used to shaving multiple times every week, this tool will be your new bestie! It’s quick, easy, and very effective. (I’ll link my Braun model at the bottom of this post!)
Here are the reasons I made the switch:
Like I said at the beginning, you’ll spend SEVENTY-TWO DAYS OF YOUR LIFE shaving your legs. No, ma’am. That is NOT okay!
If you shave regularly, how much money do you think you spend on shaving products? I calculated my cost, being the finance nerd that I am. When I used to shave all the time, I used Venus razors and Skintimate Shaving Cream. Every single year, I spent $120…on leg hair maintenance! That’s why I searched for a cheaper option.
Every razor you’ve ever used will still exist in a landfill when your grandchildren are your age. Oof…
A: Only as much as getting your eyebrows waxed or threaded. After a few sessions, it just tickles a bit.
However, if you’ve seen the “Men Try Epilating” YouTube video, keep in mind that (1) It was made for entertainment, and (2) There’s a reason women don’t get the man flu!
A: Yes! I epilate my legs, arms, and facial hair. I would epilate my underarms, too, but I had those lasered before my wedding.
A: I haven’t used the cheaper ~$30 ones, but I’ve heard from other bloggers that they’re not as gentle. I bought the better quality one on Amazon and planned on returning it if it didn’t work. Six months later, I’m very happy with the Braun model I have.
A: Yes, this will make your first-time experience easy-peasy:
If you’re fed up with shaving and tend to wear pants all winter…
If you miss the silky feeling of hairless legs as you curl up into your soft bed sheets…
If you want to cut back on the cost of your beauty routine in both TIME and MONEY…
Get an epilator! You’ll love how it upgrades your life!

Here’s the latest version (because mine is 2 years old). It’s a bit pricier:
If you’re not ready to commit to the newest version but you want to try epilating, here’s a link to the cheapest *working* one I’ve seen:
(I really don’t recommend the Version 3 (silk epil-3), because I’ve heard it often breaks the hair when tugging, leading to ingrowns.)
