Happy Monday. My azz is dragging today. I can’t keep my eyes open and I had the hardest time getting up this morning. Dontcha just hate Mondays? The good news is I grabbed a sneak peek of Hapi Mari (Happy Marriage?!) on my way to work. This released while I was on vacation so I’m just starting it now. I dislike reading manga online and been waiting for it to release in English so was quite happy to come home to a box from my favorite comic store when I got home from vacation and inside was the pre-book I did for this. If you like cute Josei-style manga reads be sure to pick it up! From what I have read it’s shaping up nicely! Also Midnight Secretary gets a release in the Fall if vampires are your thing! Can’t wait to read that myself.
And on the cosmetic front how about chocolate nail polish remover?
Heads up cleansing water fans as the new Caudalie Make-Up Remover Cleansing Water ($28) might be one you’d like to try out! Last year a slew of brands like NARS and MAC launched Cleansing Waters to those lazy girl’s in need a of a quick way to get their wipe off in a hurry. This Fall, Caudalie joins the club with their new Make-Up Remover Cleansing Water.
Caudalie Make-Up Remover Cleansing Water is a soap-free water that removes makeup while cleansing and toning the your skin. The gentle formula promises not strip skin and leaves it cool, refreshed, and moisturized.
It’s scented like orange, lemon blossom, watermelon, and mint leaves. They had me at watermelon and mint leaves…I wonder if the scent is kinda like their Beauty Elixir if so I’ll be in heaven!
It’s available now at Sephora and Sephora.com
Any fav cleansing waters you use?
You might well recognize the Skin Food Water Drop Facial Ice Vita Cream as it is from the same collection as the recently released Skin Food Facial Ice Vita Mist and Skin Food Vita Water Drop CC Cream I recently reviewed for you!
Supposedly this contains over 80% Alaskan Glacier water. I said it before I say it again I have no idea where in Korea they get Glacier water but props for great marketing….!
Mizon Snail Repair Hydro Mist joined my empire of facial mists earlier this month because I don’t technically own a snail facial mist and I felt like I needed to mist myself with snail mucus. I mean I’m already applying it via moisturizer and facial masks so why the hell can’t I mist it on my face too right?
I know sounds weird but it really isn’t, promise!
The weather is finally starting to warm up around here and my legs are starting to make a reappearance after hibernating for the winter and even the spring. Spring was a bit chilly this year with a good deal of rain so there weren’t many opportunities for dresses, skirts, or shorts. I hope to redeem that now this summer! The Gillette Venus & Olay Razor in the newest Sugarberry scent is just the ticket to getting my legs smooth and perfect for shorts.
Seriously, keeping your legs smooth is a full time job sometimes which is why you need a good razor handy to get a great close shave. The Gillette Venus & Olay Sugarberry Razor contains five blades allowing for a close shave. The soft grip handle allows for comfortable control of the razor as you shave. But the best part of the razor is the fact that you don’t need separate shaving cream to get a smooth shave as the razor has built in Olay Moisture Bars located on either side of the razor which help lock in skin’s moisture for less dryness vs. the Breeze razor over time and take the place of shaving cream. These bars have a sweet scent called Sugarberry! When you’re done just pop the razor into its storage caddy that you can tack onto the tiles in your shower stall.
Having a good razor at home will save you a good deal of money on laser, electrolysis, or waxing treatments and makes hair removal at home easier and more efficient.
Most women prefer a wet shave as it’s easy on our legs plus mess-free as we can do it in the shower.
For a smooth, close shave follow these tips:
- Make sure your razor blade is fresh and is of good quality. The Venus & Olay Razor has five blades which allow for a close, comfortable shave and once your blades go blunt it’s easy enough to purchase refills.
- Take a warm, hot shower to soften hair.
- Some suggest shaving down your legs before shaving upwards as it has longer lasting results. This is actually what I do. I shave down and proceed to shave upwards after so you get a double shave experience that gives you a little longer in between shaving.
Since the Venus & Olay Razor has built in moisture bars you don’t need to go the extra step with shaving cream or soap however, I do suggest following up, after your legs are dry, with a good body cream such as Olay lotion to provide more moisture and smoothness to skin.
Getting smooth, summer legs are made easy with a good razor and a few simple steps!
How do you keep your legs smooth and short worthy for the warm weather?
