I’m not sure about where you guys are, but here in Colorado the sun is beginning to shine more often than not. This can only mean one thing…..spring and summer are almost here. Both of which are two of my favorite seasons, except for one important detail, shaving my legs more often!
You guys know what I am talking about. Winter comes and we put the razor away for a little bit. I’m not saying we never shave, but it’s cut back a lot compared to spring and summer. I know I can’t be the only one that does this. However, that time is over now. We are starting to break out the shorts and skirts, oh and don’t even get me started on bathing suit season. Now is the time when our razor becomes our best friend. It’s a necessity that can’t be ignored.
Please don’t ignore it…..
Here’s the truth about why I hate shaving. I’m lazy and I do it too fast, so inevitably I cut myself, usually more than once. I end up with nicks on my knees, ankles and sometimes other places that I will spare you from hearing about. Up until today I was pretty sure that I was unable to shave without cutting myself at least once. So what changed for me today? I tried the new Gillette Venus Swirl with new Flexiball technology.
I have to be honest with you guys, it was pretty cool. The Venus Swirl has 5 contour razors and a Flexiball head that moves in multiple directions to get even the hardest of spots. For the first time in forever, I have smooth knees without a few patches of missed hairs. Best of all, I didn’t have to stick pieces of toilet paper all over the nicks on my legs, because there were none.
It was awesome for shaving under my arms as well, because the head pivots up and down. It contours perfectly to the curves on all parts of my body. Looking at the picture, you can see the purple color surrounding the blades. That is a water activated MoistureGlide™ Serum that surrounds the blades giving it exceptional glide. It’s great for those times when you put on a sleeveless shirt and realize you need a touch up, but don’t want to get back into the shower.
When I shaved today, I used the Venus™ with a touch of Olay® VioletSwirl™ shave gel. It has 5x more moisturizers, which I need as dry as my skin is. It definitely only took a little to create a wonderful lather that made my legs feel soft and silky.
One of the best parts about shaving is getting into bed afterwards and feeling my legs glide against the covers. It’s one of those times when I am glad to be a woman.
Now go on, you know you want to get your “shave on” and feel the softness you’ve been missing this winter. You can purchase the new Gillette Venus Swirl at your local Walmart. It can be found on the shave aisle.
