First day of Spring and whether the forecast in your area is for sun, rain or snow we all know one thing is coming. Longer, warmer days and exposed legs and arms. This is the perfect time of year to get a great new razor and get your legs silky smooth and ready to wow in all your best Spring looks.

They say life is about simple pleasures and one of mine has always been freshly shaved legs, clean sheets and falling asleep to the sound of rain. So basically I am in the trifecta of simple pleasures this time of year. I was looking for a new razor the other day and somehow had a bunch of blades and handles that don’t match. Does that happen to anyone else but me? So I jumped on the chance to review the new Gillette Venus Swirl line, I am a sucker for a great shave.

I love this razor! The Flexiball makes it glide over knees and ankles and gave me such a smooth shave without any knicks or razor burn. The 5 blades meant a quick and thorough shave and I wasn’t needing to do multiple pass overs like some razors need to get a really smooth shave.

The perfect pairing for the new Gillette Venus Swirl Razor is the Olay Violet Swirl shave gel. I love the beautiful purple color of this shave gel and you can see from above just a bit creates a beautiful thick cream. This shave gel smells amazing, like make it in a fragrance please Gillette good. And it creates such a nice rich cream it left my legs silky smooth and soft post shave. This is definitely a must have duo for Spring and Summer.

Gillette Venus Swirl Women’s Razor
The Gillette Venus Swirl Women’s Razor is the first and only razor with Flexiball to contour to tricky areas for a flawless shave. Unlike traditional models that move in two directions, this one moves in multiple directions. This Venus swirl razor, 1 count helps capture what others may miss, and the advanced blades have a MicorFine comb to guide hair to the blades to capture virtually every hair. It includes a cartridge refill and features water activated serum for incredible glide and a smooth and close shave. The Gillette Venus Swirl Women’s Razor features protective cushions for a great shave and an indicator strip that fades when you are no longer getting the optimal shave you need.

Karora Cosmetics Contest Winner!

KARORA collection

Congratulations to our winner Amy W. Watch your email inbox for an email!

I was recently introduced to the Karora Cosmetics self tanning line and I love it. I love the natural gorgeous glow this line gives my skin. Enter today to win your own bottle of Karora Tinted Self Tan Mist and Karora Gradual Tan!

karora tinted self tan mist

The first thing I noticed was how great the mist was. The spray was even and wide and really easy to control. I used a tanning mitt and rub in a light circular motion after I apply the mist to make sure I have even coverage. One of my favorite things is how quick this dries, within seconds my skin was dry to the touch and no heavy self tan scent. I like to apply it at night before bed then wake up with a gorgeous golden hue. On top of a really beautiful golden shade this tan lasts 5-7 days on my and fades so naturally I have to remind myself it was a spray not natural tan.

KARORA TINTED SELF TAN MIST $30
Release your radiant goddess with a color match made in heaven. A guiding golden tint gives instant glow gratification and develops into a glorious honey dipped tan. Botanical extracts lock in moisture guaranteeing complexion perfection and long lasting color that fades incredibly evenly. This multi-award winning mist combines custom color with skin caring botanicals to deliver a sun kissed glow to suit your individual skin tone. Color lasts up to seven days and fades like a natural tan. The tinted formula glides on effortlessly, dries quickly and the golden streak-free color intensifies after a few hours. There is no faux tan smell, just a fresh citrus fragrance while our signature botanicals of acai & argan will keep skin in tip top condition.

Directions: Spray directly onto mitt & apply onto skin using colour guide to ensure even coverage.

Signature ingredients: a botanical cocktail of aloe, acai berry, argan and coconut oil instantly ups skin radiance while an aromatic citrus melon twist ensures you smell as good as your skin looks.

karora gradual tan and mitt

The Karora Gradual Tan is a lotion based sunless tanner that hydrates while it gives you a golden glow. And if you use sunless tanners often you know how important healthy, hydrated skin is to a good self tan.

I applied this self tanner with the Karora self tanning mitt which is hands down my favorite tanning mitt I’ve tried. The surface is so smooth it works the product for even coverage without soaking it all up. And the mitt protects my hands from absorbing all the self tanner and letting my secret slip.

If you’re timid about self tanners this is a great product for you. With my first nights use I woke the next day with a nice subtle glow. It didn’t look overly tan, more like my skin perfected with a healthy glow. Then if I want a little more oomph to my color I can reapply to deepen the tan. The lotion was easy to apply and dried within minutes and once again no weird self tanner smell.

KARORA GRADUAL TAN $25.00
Get glowing with a daily dose of natural color and a burst of hydration. This moisture rich lotion replenishes and conditions the face and body with botanical boosting hydrators while turning it gloriously golden. Layer it up for a richer honey-dipped color. Smells good, feels good and gives a lovely glow in just one application – that’s why it’s a beauty award winner. KARORA Gradual Tan jump starts your tan after one application and builds into a deeper golden colour after just 1-2 further applications. Fused with a proprietary blend of skin caring botanicals, the rich and luxurious formula glides on the skin leaving a fresh citrus fragrance. A real skin conditioning treat that ensures your colour fades evenly and naturally.

Directions: Blend into skin ensuring even coverage. Re-apply daily for deeper colour. Wash hands after each application.

Signature ingredients: fused with a fine tuned blend of jojoba, coconut oil, rosemary leaf extract, vitamin E and essential oil of argan to soften, sooth and condition the skin. With an aromatic top note of fresh orange oil for a blossoming skin scent.

Available at: www.ulta.com and Ulta Beauty Stores nationwide, at www.hsn.com and from C.O. Bigelow.

Winner Announced: Dove Body Wash Contest

dove body wash new formula

And the lucky winner is Lyza J! Please watch your email inbox.

A few weeks ago, Dove premiered the #OneShowerChallenge at the Emmys, inviting millions of women across the country to try its new, breakthrough body wash formula for softer, smoother skin after just one shower. Since then, women nationwide have been joining the One Shower Challenge movement to see the Dove difference for themselves.

I have always loved Dove body washes, I love how clean and smooth they leave my skin. And nothing beats how soft and hydrated they leave my skin.  I was interested to see how they could improve on a formula I already thought was pretty perfect.

Well I can say the body wash has made a difference in just one day for me. Lately my skin has been a bit dry and even after lotion it seems to be lacking moisture. After just the first days use my skin especially on my legs is smooth and hydrated. Instead of needing to glob on lotion post shower my skin already felt smooth and hydrated. I love how great the Dove body wash smells and the thick, luxurious lather it creates. A soothing and refreshing way to unwind after a long day.

Dove Body Washes are setting a new standard in care. With almost 25% more Glycinate, an ultra-mild cleanser primarily found in premium face products, NEW Dove Body Washes have become even milder and offer 10x more skin natural nourishment than other leading body washes. While mild cleansers have historically lacked the ability to produce great lather, the new formula has broken the body wash paradigm, allowing women to enjoy the rich lather they love and the mildness their skin needs.

Women can now feel the difference both during and after cleansing as NEW Dove Body Washes provide softer, smoother skin after just one shower.* The Dove Purely Pampering and Dove go fresh® collections are also now available in the new formula, so that all women can enjoy its beauty benefits no matter their fragrance preference.
