BEST WAY TO SHAVE! Especially for thick, and even ingrown hairs. I saw on Pinterest that using the baby oil gel works, but not so much for me. However I discovered if you use a little bit of the gel mixed with conditioner, you use that with a pumice stone and exfoliate your legs before shaving and it's great! Then use the gel conditioner when you shave as well! Just exfoliate in light circular motions and your legs will be ready for a really good shave with just about no nicks or irritation.
