I find that within a few hours after shaving my legs (even with a new razor) I have a "5 o'clock" shadow. It's as though I didn't shave at all because you can see the hair follicles under my skin. Does anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions for what I can do??
NICOLE H Answer :
You can try shaving in the direction of hair growth first and then against the grain. Make sure you shower for a few minutes before so the hair can soften. I usually wash my hair, then use a body scrub, and at the end I shave.

I'm not if this will help but it's worth a try! :)
Try getting a closer shave. Instead of shaving in the shower, run a bath in hot water. Let your legs sit in the water for a minute or two to get the hair to stand up (you know how it stands up and you get those goosebumps when you're in hot water) and then shave. You'll get a closer shave and it will last longer.

Shave your legs then use a body wash that has a scrub in it on your legs then shave them again. Dry your legs and apply a thick moisturizer and you'll have really soft legs and the shave will hopefully last longer.
