|As you can see, these look very similar to deodorant on the inside, though they're firm to the touch.|
How They Work
Using a ChicStis shaving wand is super simple. All you do is moisten your skin, swipe this across the skin you're intending to shave, then shave as usual.
When I first used these I was a tad scared that I'd end up shaving off half of the skin on my leg (though in all honest I never, ever cut myself), so I did about 20 passes up my leg before shaving. I did about 6 or 7 passes under my arms before shaving. There was no pull under my arms and no noticeable pull at my skin. I do think there is every so slightly less glide than using a synthetic shaving cream, but it is barely, barely noticeable and certainly not enough to say this gives you a worse shave. In fact, I think I may have even gotten smoother results from using this!
Chicstix shaving wands are priced at $9 retail per wand.

I'm pretty impressed with these, I imagine they'd last for quite a few more shaves than a bottle, tube, or can of shaving gel/foam and since they're solid and non-aerosol, you can bring them onto a plane without worry! I wasn't at all irritated by these (and I have sensitive skin), which is probably partially due to the fact these wash right off after use and don't leave a film on your skin. I would definitely suggest giving these a try if you're looking for a convenient shaving lubricant! The one area I would not personally give these a go on would be your bikini line, simply because there isn't much in regards to lather, but that's just my opinion ;)
What do you think? Would you try a shaving solid in lieu of your normal product?
