It's officially bathing suit season, which means razors and shaving creams will be flying off supermarket shelves and women everywhere will be booking appointments with the nearest body waxer.

I've always been envious of women who can shave their legs any ol' time with any ol' product. Unlike me, these are the women who never fear the discomfort of razor burn, or the dreaded post-shaving dry skin. Without my bathroom arsenal of anti-rash shaving equipment, shaving becomes a questionable and painful experience.

Outsmarting my sensitive skin has required many practice trials through the years. I've learned which products won't scrape, or burn off my (extremely sensitive) skin.

So to prevent shaving mishaps, I only shave with lotions and conditioners rather than gels, soaps or foams. I’ve discovered moisturizing hair conditioner, or a thick body lotion like Aveeno, works best for my skin.

Topical hydrocortisone cream, which treats minor skin rashes, also works well as a preventative agent against irritation for extra-close shaves in extra sensitive areas.

For so many women without the curse of sensitive skin, they take the ease of shaving for granted. Yet, for me, jumping daily through shaving hoops are my reality.

At least it was my daily reality until I discovered EOS - Evolution of Smooth Shave Cream about two months ago. I’ve been using it for weeks and it’s probably the best shaving product I’ve ever tried.

EOS is a wet and dry shave cream, pomegranate raspberry flavored, that moisturizes and protects skin while shaving. It pumps out of a rust-free plastic bottle like lotion, so it stores well in the shower or under the sink. I've used the cream in and out of the shower, with wet and dry legs, and the stuff just works. If you have sensitive skin like I do, I definitely recommend EOS.

I've taken my multi-step shave process down to one step. I don’t even use lotion after I shave anymore. Give it a try! It’s perfect for on-the-go shaving for those last minute invites to pool and lake parties, and great if you're running late for a date.

It can be found at Walgreens and CVS for less than $5. More EOS products found on their website,
