I’m one of those grody girls who don’t shave much in the winter. I actually don’t usually shave more than one a week unless I’m expecting a hot male to be in my presence. Obviously, while taping The Bachelor that was a common occurrence so I shaved during every shower. With the help of the following products, I was able to avoid irritation and red bumps.
The Razor: Schick’s HYRDO 5
This five blade baby doesn’t even feel like a razor. It feels like your finger against your skin. There’s no friction! There’s no irritation. Men’s razors, like this one, are meant for their faces. (Obviously.) Facial skin is more delicate that leg skin, so I always believe they’re gentler on skin than women’s razors. Sometimes if I’m just doing a quick shave, I won’t even use cream with it. Don’t trust me yet? Read these reviews. BUY HERE.
If you’re on the hairier side AKA haven’t shaved for over two weeks, I would recommend Bic’s Soleil Bella instead. It’s particularly good at dirty work.
The Cream: Lady Cremo Cream
I’m not a scientist. I don’t know why this creates a smooth, comfortable, nick and bump-free shave. They claim it has to do with the rich quality of the cream. It’s not an airy foam like most other shaving creams and gels. It has some funky instructions though. You have to run hot hot water on the area for 30 seconds before application and use just a little bit, like a quarter size on each leg. At around $9, it’s a tad pricer than most other creams, but it’s highly concentrated so this tube lasts forevaa.
As a true pisces, I live in a magical and delusional land in my head. In this world romances unfold the way they do in romantic comedies, everything at Sephora is free, Shake Shake burgers are a diet food, and we have the capability to clone Harry Styles.
In real life (what's that?), I spend my days pondering how Kylie Jenner's face changed so much. I'm a beauty junkie and pop culture-loving wedding videographer and freelance journalist. I have a Princess Jasmine complex. I am a Fanson (die hard Hanson fan). I enjoy belting old Celine Dion songs.
Please take everything I say seriously (I have my Masters in journalism from Syracuse University), but not too seriously (Cosmo is my favorite publication.)
