New! Gillette Venus Swirl Razor + Contest #NewVenusSwirl


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.

The sun is out – let’s shave!

I know the sun doesn’t have to be out in order to shave, I’m not THAT crazy….but let’s be honest, the sun INSPIRES us to shave! We have had about three days in a row of full sun (knock on wood) and nothing keeps my legs shaved every day more than beautiful-warm-sunny-weather!  I have a confession. I just took my hour “lunch” and went and sat in the sun. Just sat there (and listened to Dr. Laura, if I’m going full-disclosure) and soaked up the Vitamin D! I’m so revved up now I could clean my whole house! (I won’t ….. but I COULD.)

As the weather warms up and Spring kicks into full gear, Gillette Venus wants to ensure you’re keeping the best Spring cleaning practices (Venus Edition) this year!

While you’re rummaging through old boxes deciding what to trash or donate, keep in mind that your Venus razor is interchangeable – so you can refill any Venus handle with any Venus blade! Not only will this save you money, but it’ll also save you an extra step while beautifying your bathroom this Spring.

With Venus’ any-cart-any-handle system, enjoy the luxury of mixing and matching to find your perfect shaving match. Your legs (and your budget!) will thank you!


A must have for this summer!


I’m terrible at buying new razors. I’ll refill the blade, but I think I’ve had the same razor for like 4 years.  I’ve always used Venus – and I’ve stuck with the same ol’ razor for years.  I went to the store to buy new blades for it over the weekend, and found the stinking things cost like $10!  I decided instead of buying refill blades, I would actually spring for a new razor entirely, so I picked up the Venus Embrace razor.

Only NEW Venus Embrace has 5 blades surrounded by a Protective Ribbon of moisture that effortlessly smoothes the glide. As you shave, each blade individually adjusts to hug your curves. Embrace your inner goddess with Venus Embrace.

I can’t believe how amazing this product is!  The razor is absolutely amazing!  It’s the closest shave I’ve had in a while, and my skin felt amazing afterwards.  I was totally impressed with how smooth my legs were…it’s amazing what a new razor will do! :)

You guys gotta go pick one up – you won’t be disappointed! I think I spent like $9.00 at Target, I’m sure you can find it at most stores near you!
