For years I used the regular stuff. Shaving cream and a razor. No more! I exfoliate with brown sugar and meadowfoam seed oil daily to keep the skin healthy. Brown sugar also helps the hair grow less.
When I do shave I use conditioner not cream or oil. I tried coconut oil. It was painful! I love conditioner. I use Lush Retrtead. The razor lasts for months and such a little amount of conditioner is needed.
