April Shower Buddies

I enjoy a refreshing shower. I’m not really a bath kinda gal. As I try loads of different products, I thought that I would start a new monthly piece on the site called Shower Buddies, showcasing the products I use to get myself all fresh ’n’ ready for the day.

Here are my April Shower Buddies… (more…)

TAKE 5: Looking Leggy

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009


Razor burn, cuts and bumps are dirty words when it comes to smooth legs. To get the best results from shaving, you need a good combination of razor and technique.

It is best to shave your legs at the very end of your shower or bath. The heat and moisture will have had a chance to work their magic and make hair softer and easier to shave. Slather legs with a shaving cream or gel before you shave – this will allow your razor to glide over the area. Because shaving exfoliates the skin, you need to follow up with your favourite body cream, lotion or oil to prevent dryness.

Razors come in different shapes, sizes and with different numbers of blades and moisture strips. You need to find the right one for you. Just remember to change your blade every two weeks or so, depending on how often you want to be fuzz free. (more…)

Silky Smooth

venus-spa-breezeSpring is upon us, and soon we’ll be baring our legs. The quickest way to get smooth is a razor, but there are so many to choose from – which one should you pick? Our go to for fuzz free legs has always been the Gillette Venus Breeze, but now we are loving the Venus Spa Breeze, the newest addition to the Venus Breeze family. (more…)

Embrace Your Inner Venus

Tuesday, March 11th, 2008

The quickest way to smooth legs is a razor, and 50% of Canadian women recently surveyed by Venus said that they would rather have a coffee stain on a white blouse than have an unshaven leg!

My original go-to for fuzz free legs was always the Gillette Venus Divine and I loved my razor, but I now have a new love…the Gillette Venus Embrace.

With its 5 curve-hugging blades and the new protective ‘ribbon of moisture’ surrounding them, the razor effortlessly glides over my skin, ensuring that I get to all those little hairs – including on and around my knobbly knees (thank you to my hubbie for calling them that the other day).

I have been using my new razor for a couple of weeks now and have not nicked myself once! I am so happy. I hate those cuts that you don’t realize you have, and then BAM! You see the blood and feel that stinging.

The experts tell me that it is best to ‘shave after you shampoo’. In other words wait for a couple of minutes so that the hair softens and is easier to cut. Use your favourite shaving gel or cream (mine is currently the new Satin Care Alluring Avocado Shave Gel), and a light touch.

Once I am done using my razor, I just hang it up in the little white shower pod that comes with the razor. Very convenient.

Have you tried this razor? What do you think?
