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.
Pregnancy hormones have sent my hair follicles into overdrive. It’s gotten to the point where I’ve got a 5 o’clock shadow on my legs at, like, 2pm. And thanks to the ungodly heat and humidity in Philly right now, hiding my grizzly gams under long pants isn’t exactly appealing…especially considering that I’m having one long hot flash right now.
So I recently got reacquainted with my favorite scrub – KP Duty by DERMAdoctor – and it gave me the closest shave ever. Yeah, using it adds an extra few minutes to your shower routine. But it exfoliates so well that it allows your razor to cut super close so that you can go longer between shaves – which is great for me because:
a) no one actually enjoys shaving and
b) in my current condition, the act of shaving my legs is like pregnant Cirque du Soleil.
Oh, and you won’t be able to stop petting your legs because they’ll be ridiculously smooth. I know I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating. KP Duty Body Scrub runs circles around that scrub you’ve got sitting on the edge of your tub.
The Venus Spa Breeze features built-in “shave gel bars” with white tea scent, 3-blade for an ultra close shave, interchangeable blade refill cartridges, a shaving compact for in-shower refill storage, and a soft grip handle for no-slip control.
Many thanks to Gillette for spoiling these readers pretty.
