2. Schick Intuition Pure Nourishment Skin Moisturizing Solid Razor ($5.97, walmart.com) Shaving in the shower has its pitfalls as well. When razors are dull or are raked over the skin too fast, they can cause serious burns. You also need a moisturizing shaving cream on hand to prep the skin. Schick Intuition created this razor/shaving cream combo that makes shaving a quick, enjoyable experience. The shaving cream is actually in a solid form and located around the blades. Genius! Infused with good-for-you ingredients such as coconut milk and almond oil to help moisturize, your skin will be left super smooth and glowing after just one swipe of the razor.

This hair removal laser is the first to be cleared by the FDA (hence it's pricey price tag), and works to permanently disable the hair follicle without damaging the skin around it. If you like it, you can try it on your legs, armpits, face, or anywhere you want to be smooth and hair-free.
