It’s that time of year again. Time to bite the bullet and bare some skin. Now that the weather is getting warmer, you can’t get away with a perfunctory shave. You know, the one where you sloppily run the razor over your legs – missing whole patches of skin; you shave just enough so that you don’t offend your man, or resemble a Wooly Mammoth. Well, now that hemlines are getting shorter and long sleeves give way to tanks, you need to invest a little more thought, time and energy into your method of hair removal.

Have I got the razor for you. You absolutely must try Venus Embrace, Gillette’s new shaving system – with five blades surrounded by a ‘protective ribbon of moisture.’

The pivoting head allows the blades to stay in constant contact with the skin, even around nick-prone areas like knees and ankles. The soft grip handle provides increased control in the shower, and the razor comes with this super cool ‘ShowerPod’ that suctions to the tile and conveniently stores the razor and extra blades.

A lot of information, I realize…but here’s the bottom line: right now, I’m proud to say that my armpits haven’t been this smooth or hair-free since before I hit puberty. I’m amazed.

I am so excited by the Venus Embrace that I want to share the smoothness with all of you. So this week, 15 lucky readers will win a Venus Embrace Shaving System, plus Satin Care Alluring Avocado Shave Gel (which is intensely moisturizing and has a light, fresh scent)!

To enter, send an email to Be sure to include your full name. The subject line should read “Venus Embrace Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, June 8th. Winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, June 9th, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. & Canadian residents only.

Good luck!

    My venus razor just went with me to Puerto Vallarta. Well, now I’m wishing I would have found this new Venus first to do the job just that much better.

    Please enter my name into your drawing.
    I use the original Venus, it’s the only razor my daughters and I use.
    I’m sad to say my only complaint is the cost of the blades.
    So hoping I win the newest version.

    Thank you…..
