Here Comes the Sun: BIC® Soleil® Glow® Razor

BIC Soleil Glow RazorMy hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms can give a razor quite a workout. During the warmer months, I have to shave every single day. Skipping days isn’t an option. So when fall arrives and the mercury drops, I typically get a little lazy with my shaving. There have been days when I’ve made clothing choices so I didn’t have to shave. And when I did need to shave—because I was in danger of offending my husband or resembling a Sasquatch—I’d do a quick and sloppy job at the end of my shower routine.

Well, that used to me by M.O.—until I recently discovered a razor that transforms my shaving routine into a treat. The BIC® Soleil® Glow® Razor is a premium disposable razor that provides a flawlessly smooth shave. The COMFORT SHIELD® head evenly distributes pressure, glides and helps protect your skin from irritation. And the 3 flexible blades adjust to your unique curves and contours.

With other disposable razors, I found myself going over the same spots numerous times. And even then, I would occasionally get out of the shower, towel off and put on my glasses to survey my handiwork—and there would be a horde of errant hairs that I ‘missed.’ Not so with the BIC® Soleil® Glow® Razor, though. This baby gets everything on the first swipe, which I appreciate because it cuts my shave time considerably. And I have to admit that I love the refreshing sensation of rubbing my silky smooth legs together.

You know what else I appreciate? The price. You can pick up a three pack for about $6.99. The pretty pastel rubber grip handles are a nice bonus too.

The BIC® Soleil® Glow® Razor did the impossible. It turned shaving from something I loathe to something I kind of look forward to. And now that I’m confident and hair-free (no more Wooly Mammoth legs pour moi), I don’t have to hide behind long pants, opaque tights and tall boots. So if you’re anything like the old me, run out and get this razor.

Noodle & Boo Conditioning Hair Polish

My daughter, Arwen, is a Noodle & Boo baby. Seen here – with a hair brush in each hand – she is a true beauty girl in training.


Noodle & Boo, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…

Noodle & Boo Newborn 2-in-1 Hair & Body Wash gently cleanses Arwen’s hair and skin without stripping its natural moisture. It’s tear-free, clinically-tested for sensitive/newborn skin, mild enough for daily use and suds up well despite being sulfate-free.

Noodle & Boo Baby Balm is a nourishing cream for face and body that soothes, pampers and provides long-lasting moisture for dry, irritated skin.

My latest Noodle & Boo discovery is their Conditioning Hair Polish, which uses sunflower seed and green tea extracts to detangle and smooth, reduce frizz and protect against environmental stress.   (more…)

Elizabeth & James Nirvana Black Review: Fierce and Feminine

If you surveyed the perfumes on my vanity, you’d surely notice that the common thread amongst my favorites is vanilla. Most days, I smell like some variation of vanilla. But as I get older, I’m constantly searching for a more sophisticated take on the scent. I love vanilla, but I’m a little too mature to be walking around smelling like cupcakes.

So I was thrilled to recently make the acquaintance of Elizabeth & James Nirvana Black (there’s also a Nirvana White) – a sensual, modern interpretation of my favorite flava. The perfume is an addictive blend of violet, sandalwood, and rich vanilla that strike the perfect balance between masculine and feminine.  (more…)
