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.

Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream Review

whish shave crave shaving cream

Daneen – I know that you like your razor*, but wow, this stuff is awesome!

Do you remember where you were when you learned how to shave? Believe it or not, I was in Tennessee! My Dad was driving our family to Orlando, from New Jersey, for a trip to Disney world. He had the tendency to take the long way to stop at obscure places for sight seeing. I was 10 or 12 years old, and I recall my mom saying that it was time to learn. She took a disposable razor and his Barbasol shave cream and showed me what to do.

Since then, I always got the $1.00 Barbasol shave cream to use. But since it always left me feeling dry (and smelling like a man, ha!), I decided to splurge and get Skintimate – which was definitely better. I never thought I would use anything more “luxurious” than that until Whish Shave Crave found its way to my shower.

Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!

dermadoctor gorilla warfare hair minimizing antiperspirantMy hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I’ve got stubble. And forget about skipping days…unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I go through a lot of razors) – it’s also tedious and annoying. There are many days that I make certain clothing choices so I don’t have to go through the trouble of shaving.

So when I heard that one of my favorite skincare brands, DERMAdoctor, has a hair-minimizing antiperspirant, I emailed them with a quickness to ask for a sample I could review for Spoiled Pretty.

Here’s how DERMAdoctor describes Gorilla Warfare:

No need to go ape over jungle-like hair growth and rain forest-level wetness. Stop monkeying around with the ordinary and make peace with two decidedly indelicate concerns with a solution uniquely camouflaged as a daily antiperspirant. It contains fourteen highly evolved botanicals that help turn underarm hair into an endangered species. (more…)

Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo

My preferred method of hair removal is threading–on my face, anyway. Up until a few years ago, I frequented a lovely threading salon in downtown Philly. But then it closed, which is a real shame because there aren’t a lot of threading places near me. Since then, I’ve been patronizing those threading kiosks at the mall. They do a great (and cheap) job. However, it’s one thing to get your brows shaped in the middle of the mall and it’s an entirely different thing (aka mortifying experience) to have your upper lip and chinny chin chin hairs ripped out in front of passersby.

I tried to suck it up, close my eyes and pretend that onlookers weren’t snickering at me. But I’m much too self-conscious for that kind of public humiliation. So I had to come up with a more private method of hair removal. Luckily, I didn’t have to search very hard because Olay did the work for me.

I was recently sent a sample of Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo and it’s so genius that I couldn’t wait to write this review. The simple two-step system gently, yet effectively, removes even stubborn facial hair. (more…)
