To save a few bucks, use hair conditioner not shaving cream. Shaving cream creates a layer between the razor and your skin while protecting from nicks and cuts. Conditioners work just as well and they moisturize while you shave.

This is a wonderful tip! I have been doing this for years after I had seen the tip in a teenager magazine. It's cheap and it works great! I also have no problems using it under my arms.
I've done this for years! In fact I go a little further. When I shower, I put hair conditioner on me. I rub it all over my body then rinse my skin, my body is getting a moisture treatment.
I have also been doing this for years as I never liked shaving cream. You can use the cheapest hair conditioners from the 99 cent store. Your legs feel so smooth afterwards. I've never done the math but I bet they are cheaper than shaving creams.
