I’m one of those people that can only shave their legs sitting down. I don’t know why, but I just never mastered shaving while standing on one foot in a wet and slippery shower, so I’ve always made shaving my legs a part of my bath experience. From the time I was in middle school I’ve take warm baths almost every night before bed. I grew up dancing competitively so that meant long hours at the studio. When I would get home from a long practice I would be SO achy and all I wanted to do was soak in the tub. Taking a bath and shaving my legs became apart of my nightly ritual before bed and I still do it to this day. There’s nothing better than hopping into your sheets with fresh and smooth legs!! Now that I’m a mom, I really appreciate the quiet and relaxing time I have to myself each night. I light a candle, turn on music and throw some bubble bath in and unwind.

I grew up in a house of all girls so over the years I’ve tried A LOT of different brands of shaving cream. I’ve found that so many brands would dry my skin out like crazy!! At one point I started using conditioner because my legs were getting so dry and I thought maybe the conditioner would help moisturizer them while I shaved. A few months ago I got some EOS products to test out, including their shaving cream. It’s become one of my favorites because it’s still thick and creamy like a typical shaving cream but it is SO moisturizing (no really, it’s incredible)!!! Sometimes when I would use conditioner or soap, I would end up cutting myself because it wasn’t thick enough so I love that EOS still has the thickness but leaves my skin feeling so smooth and hydrated.

  1. The lighting in your pictures is so soft and stunning! I did a shaving post myself, it turned out funny and a teachable moment..enjoy it @: southernsplendorblog.com ;)

  2. That’s a great idea. You are so cute. That’s so funny I have a hard time too shaving my legs in the shower. I always do it in my sink.

  3. Why is it that when a lady, who is pregnant, always, always holds her stomach? It’s not like the baby is gonna fall out!

    1. You must have never been pregnant before :) My belly can get so big I feel like I need to help hold it up. ha ha. It helps relieve some of the pressure.

    1. Thanks! I bought it at Bed Bath and Beyond. It was silver and I spray painted it because I couldn’t find any either!

  4. But if you shave in the bath aren’t you soaking in floating leg hair and shaving cream? Or do you shave last and then rinse off? Asking cuz I want to try! I need to sit while I shave too.

  5. I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed a nice bath instead of showers. Your post makes me want to go soak in a nice warm tub! I love EOS products, especially this shave cream! Great photos, as usual!

  6. There has always been the same problem with me while shaving my legs, the skin afterwards was soooo dry. I am going to try the EOS out as well.

  7. I use conditioner too, mostly because I just forget to buy shaving cream. I use the EOS lip balm and it’s so good and I know my sisters use the shaving cream too.

  8. Love your bathroom! That bathtub is a dream. I’m looking for a cute bath tray for our place, but can only find silver or bamboo ones. Where did you find your gold one??

    1. Thank you Erika! I actually got it from Bed Bath and Beyond. It was silver and I spray painted it because I couldn’t find any either!

  9. Your images are just beautiful, as is your home!!
    I’ve always wanted to try EOS shaving foam but it’s hard to get hold of in the UK, I will hunt it down as it sounds lovely, I too suffer with seriously dry legs. xx

  10. Hi Rachel!

    Thank you!
