    This is something that I've been wondering about recently. Currently, I only shave (legs, underarms and pubes) on days when I'm going to see my boyfriend, so 1-3 times a week. However, we plan on living together one day, and I was wondering how often people who live with their partners shave? I like being shaven when I'm with my BF, but shaving every day seems a bit of a pain.

    How often do you shave?

    I shave my legs once every two weeks and my underarms once a week.

    I get waxed every 4-8 weeks-ish, full legs, underarm, bikini line. Coming up to 8 weeks I look like a yeti. :)

    hmm well i use hair removal cream so about once a week for pubes, underarms and legs. it seems to glow a little slower when i use the cream, and is softer.

    if i shave with a razor, i have to do it every day as it grows and is realy coarse

    shaving with the direction of the hair helps, as well as exfoliating and mousturising.

    also if you use a disposable razor a new one every time you shave can help as well

    if you want to try hair removal creans they work fairly well (follow packet instructions)

    I shave daily if I'm wearing a skirt/sleeveless top/swimsuit etc. But I don't shave everyday if it's just my partner who will see me. It's just not possible to keep up that kind of effort and it's nice to be natural sometimes as well!

    I shave in the shower for legs and underarms and shave pubes once I get out (I need the mirror lol), and it helps majorly. I used to use the special feminine shaving cream they sell at Boots, but I actually find doing it in/just after the shower works the same, if not better.

    I tried hair removal creams before but found they didnt work well.

    I find with the creams it doesn't work it just makes the hair brittle.

    Can't stand the pain of waxing but love the results - ever tried those sanding disc things - technical term lol?

    I use the sanding discs on my legs and upper lip...never tried them on my pubes - yet.

    Can be bought fairly cheaply - try the pound shops.

    I recommend waxing. Yeah it does hurt, but take painkillers in advance and once it's over, you forget the pain. I agree, pulling out your own pubes is too sore though!

    I shave my underarms maybe every 4 or 5 days, i dont have much under there ever so im a lucky lady that way!

    I do my legs every 3 or 4 days, again slow growth so lucky luck!!

    And i use hair removal on my pubes every week, my OH says he likes it smooth, but also likes it when its starting to grow in slightly for some reason (lol yes i laughed when he admitted it but its less pressure on me!) but he hates a full garden.... Lol.
