Razor

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.

Schick Intuition Limited Edition Handles

In a few weeks, I’ll be heading to Miami to report from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim. And being the Type A personality that I am, I’ve already started writing a packing list. In fact, I’ve already started sequestering products in preparation for my travels.

One thing I’ve already set aside is my beloved Schick Intuition Razor. It’s perfect for traveling thanks to its “Skin Moisturizing Solid,” which lathers and hydrates while you shave. Since you don’t need to take along a separate can of shave gel, this baby takes up minimal real estate in your toiletries bag. And here’s the best part: it delivers the closest shave I’ve ever experienced with a razor – stubbly stems, begone!
Knowing how much I love the Intuition, Schick recently sent me a sample of the razor’s latest incarnation. For a limited time, the Intuition is available in three fun designs: Naturals For Sensitive Skin With Aloe and Vitamin E (green); Moisturizing Care Pack Duo (polka-dot pink); and Pomegranate Extract (pink swirl) – which is coming with me to Florida.

The great thing about these handles is their long shelf life. After the Skin Moisturizing Solid has worn away, you keep the handle and just pop on a new blade. I love me some Intuition (if they ever discontinue this razor, I think I might cry). As with most razors, replacement blades can get kinda pricey – so my tip is to stock up when you have a coupon or when they’re on sale. Personally, I buy in bulk at Sam’s Club.
Schick Intuition Limited Edition designs are available at drugstores and mass market retailers, now through September.

Gillette Venus Spa Breeze Giveaway!

When I meet a beauty product that blows my mind, there are – typically – two things that come to mind. First, I ask myself, “Self, how have you lived your life thus far without this product in your possession?” Secondly, I strategize, “How can I hook up my Spoiled Pretty peeps?”

This was exactly my thought process when I tried Venus Spa Breeze for the very first time, last week.

This new Venus incarnation has built-in shave gel bars infused with the clean, fresh scent of white tea to provide a light lather as you shave, eliminating the need for a separate shave cream. I have to admit that, as a fan of the Schick Intuition razor, I wasn’t immediately impressed when I saw Venus Spa Breeze’s tiny little ‘shave gel bars.’ My pregnancy hormones have sent my hair follicles into overdrive, and I was very skeptical that there was enough gel to handle one leg – let alone all of my hairy situations.

But the Venus Spa Breeze pleasantly surprised me. First of all, I’m going to go on record as saying that my armpits have never been so bald, smooth and moisturized, post-shave, than after using the Venus Spa Breeze. And the razor delivered such a close shave that I didn’t have any stubble the next day! Lastly, the shave gel bars that I originally dismissed just kept going…and going…and going. They lasted through many a shave session and the triple blades stayed razor sharp.

I’m so impressed with Gillette that I’m partnering with them for a giveaway! Ten lucky winners will receive the Venus Spa Breeze, which includes 1 Venus Spa Breeze Razor, 2 refill cartridges, and 1 Shaving Compact. With warmer weather almost upon us, think how much this razor will come in handy. No more fussing with shaving cream…no more rust rings on the side of your tub…and no more buying those stupid mini cans of shave gel for vacations. Venus Spa Breeze is all you need.

To enter the giveaway, leave a message in the comments section; make sure to leave your email or another way for me to get in touch, just in case you get lucky. Contest is open to U.S. residents only. The giveaway ends at noon (EST) on Monday, March 22, 2010. Good luck!
