And a look at Venus with a Touch of Olay Shave Gel.
I have a love/hate relationship with shaving my legs in the winter. Being here on the east coast, in the frozen tundra, there is really no need to shave anything. When possible, I use the hair as an extra layer of warmth. OK, I’m exaggerating a bit; I usually do shave every other day or so – yes, even during the winter. I go to the gym and my Capri workout pants deserve a smooth leg. Right?
I admit, in a pinch I am not above using conditioner, body wash, or even…SOAP (gulp) when out of shaving cream. But I have been shaving long enough to know that it does NOT feel good. Afterwards, my legs sting and I often get red bumps. So I usually use a gel shave cream and a new-ish razor when I remember to bust one out (not so often). Enter the Gillette Venus Swirl Razor and Venus with a Touch of Olay Shave Gel.
I was doing ok with my shave routine before, but WOW! This has changed my usually mundane experience to a spa/toy car race! (I’ll explain the race car reference in a minute). The Gillette Venus Swirl Razor ($9.29) looks like your run of the mill lady Razor, with a soft purple handle and a whopping 5 blades. But wait. It has a flexiball!
This flexiball lets the razor glide over knees and ankles like a race car on a track hugging the curves! And those five blades give an incredibly close shave while the MoistureGlide serum helps the razor glide over the skin with even more ease.
Beyond its performance, I’ve also got to give Gillette props for offering a lady-centric razor that is NOT blaring-hot-pink. The royal purple hue is a nice change, and the razor itself is actually kind of pretty.
For the most luxurious shave, check out the Venus with a Touch of Olay Shave Gel ($3.99). Available in three scents, Melon Splash, Luscious Lillies and Violet Swirl, this gel has all the moisturizing properties of Olay products.
This shaving gel boats “five times the moisturizers” of your standard shaving creams. Perfect for dry and sensitive skin. The lather is so rich that it clings to the skin to ensure no spots are missed. No chance of razor burn here and wow, what a flawless shave!
I cannot wait for this brutal winter to be over for many reasons, but now I am looking forward to showing off my smooth and satiny Venus swirl shaved legs.
