A 49-year-old mom and NURSE — known digitally as “Jules” — is teaching her more than 11,000 TikTok followers how to shave their legs with nothing but 600 grit sandpaper. She says “it works." Jules explained that she tested out the razor-free shaving technique after “stalking” another TikToker’s profile for tips.
While seated in a park setting, wearing a tank top, green bikini-style bralette and shorts, Jules demonstrated the sandpapering process, rubbing the abrasive buffering utensil — typically made of aluminum oxide or granite, and often use to smooth or polish woodwork — around on her shin.
She says, “My god, my skin is so soft, it’s awesome." Jules instructed viewers to massage their legs with the sandpaper in clockwise and counter-clockwise motions, making in 10 small circles on the skin each way. In a follow-up post, Jules said she lathered her legs in lotion after sanding them down, ensuring that her stems stayed hydrated. She then admitted that her smooth shave only lasted about 24 hours before she noticed stubble growing back.
