New! Gillette Venus Swirl Razor + Contest #NewVenusSwirl

31826_3_373_Collection_03042015122322

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.

Drinkable Sunscreen?

My family all has fair skin and skin cancer has touched quite a few of my family members. My parents have both had skin cancer but very treatable ones, and my little brother 6 years my junior just had a melanoma removed. So sun protection is a always on the forefront of my mind. I spend a lot of time outdoors and after my youth of tanning beds and hours baking in the sun I know its not will I get skin cancer probably when it will  happen. I can’t erase the past but I can protect my skin going forward.

I am always looking for new sun protection products and I am really intrigued my the drinkable sun protection. I have been reading up on it and there are as many skeptics as believers.  What are your thoughts can a drinkable sunscreen really work?

Drinkable Option: Osmosis Harmonized Water UV Neutralizer
Described at the world’s 1st drinkable sunscreen, this dietary supplement is available in two formulas (Tan Enhancing and No Tan Enhancing).
Physician endorsed, no chemicals, non-toxic, this is simply purified water imprinted with unique, vibrational waves which isolate out the precise frequencies needed to protect you from UV rays. The frequencies that have been imprinted on water will vibrate on your skin in such a way as to cancel approximately 97% of the UVA and UVB rays (similar to broad spectrum SPF 30 products). This results in 3 hours of coverage that can be repeated for extended stays in the sun. These two different UV Waters allow for increased sun exposure (30x more than normal), protect your eyes, do not wash off when swimming and can increase your tanning response.
