Who wears short shorts? We will, thanks to these seven at-home hair removal revelations.
Skintimate Flirty Mango Moisturizing Shave Gel
Skintimate is to shaving gel what Maybelline Great Lash is to mascara: a tried-and-true classic. Senior copy editor Allison digs how it thickens up so quickly - not to mention the sweet aroma of mangoes in the morning.
Available at cvs.com, $3.
Venus Bikini Trimmer
A perfect solution for electrophobes, the battery-free, low-cost tool has a guarded comb/razor that makes for a neat, even trim whether used in the shower or dry. Web intern Stephanie says it's perfect for maintenance between waxes.
Available at pgestore.com, $5.
Shobha Sugaring Kit
At-home waxing has a bungee-jumping level of intimidation. Shobha's kit lowers it with its denim (yes, denim) strips that are durable and reusable after a machine wash. Unlike other wax kits, the sugar wax washes right off with soap and water. Like any wax session, it hurts, but it's nothing ibuprofen taken an hour before can't handle.

Veet Ready-to-Use Wax Strips for the Face
No pain, no gain? Not according to our photo editor, who gave these a go. Rub the strips between your hands to heat them up (or use a hair dryer like our experienced tester), then apply. After a quick pull, you're hair free.
Available at drugstore.com, $5.
Venus Spa Breeze Razor
You already have 32 bottles of who-knows-what in your shower. Skip the shaving lotion: The bars on either side of the blades keep things smooth and smell like they're straight off a yacht in the Caribbean.
Available at shop.gillette.com, $11.
Nivea Sun-Kissed Beautiful Legs Lotion
Smooth legs are great. Smooth legs that don't reflect light due to pastiness are better. This lotion takes care of both. New York Deals editor Holley says it gives her legs a kiss of color on an area that's usually stubborn when it comes to tanning. Photo intern Darcy seconds that, adding that it does indeed minimize how often she has to shave.
Available at drugstore.com, $10.
Becca High-Tech Precision Tweezers
Putting a metal contraption near your peepers isn't the most pleasant thing to do, so when it comes to pruning, you need trusty tweezers. The rubbery tips of Becca's lightweight pair grabbed each of editorial assistant Jillian's strays (no matter how tiny), making cleanup as quick as could be.
