Happy Birthday, Bikini: Venus Razor Giveaway

sports+illustrated+swimsuit+1960s Happy Birthday, Bikini: Venus Razor GiveawayIt’s hard to believe, but this month marks the 60th anniversary of the bikini in America. When the first bikini was launched, it caused an explosion on the fashion scene, and through the years that little piece of fabric has gone through quite an evolution in length, fabrics, colors and cuts. Today, the bikini is a defining force in summer style.

When it comes to donning a bikini, confidence is key…and, smooth skin can help. According to a recent survey, almost 75% of women said that they felt more confident after shaving. Research also shows that shaving makes women feel more feminine, polished and beautiful.

So, before slipping on that swimsuit, be sure to get your south of the border in order with Venus Embrace. The first five blade razor for women, Venus Embrace has a ribbon of moisture and hugs every curve for a close shave and dramatically smooth skin.

To help celebrate the bikini’s birthday, Spoiled Pretty is partnering with Venus for a giveaway. One lucky reader will win:

eos Shave Cream Giveaway

woman+shaving eos Shave Cream Giveaway

Why is it that the hair on my head takes foreva eva to grow, yet my legs have a five o’clock shadow seconds after I’ve emerged from the shower?

I’m not going to trip and pretend that shaving my stems is one of my favorite pastimes; a necessary evil is what it is. But I’ve found a pretty fantabulous product that makes this chore much less of a bore. And I’m so enamored that I want to share it with all of my friends.

Bumpy Ride: A Long Journey To Rid My Legs Of Hair Bumps

woman shaving legs razor Bumpy Ride: A Long Journey To Rid My Legs Of Hair BumpsSince I hit puberty, I’ve been cursed with hair bumps on my legs. Because the hair on my legs is coarse and grows in a curly pattern, sometimes as the hair grows out, it curls back under the skin into the same follicle. And because the hair is trapped under the skin, even after I shave, I still have many unsightly ingrown hairs.

The condition isn’t physically painful, like razor bumps; but it is emotionally painful, as I’ve spent many years hiding this condition beneath long skirts and pants – even during the dog days of summer.

For half of my life, I’ve had a serious case of leg envy. Every time I see a woman with silky smooth gams, I selfishly hope that she silently suffers from stretch marks, bacne or some other embarrassing ailment that isn’t apparently obvious. It just isn’t fair!

I’ve tried a million and one products and techniques to solve the problem…and while I’ve yet to discover a panacea, I have found a temporary solution.   (more…)
