Shave Less with These Subtle Changes

Summer is here and the weather is HOT! It is safe to assume, we have all taken our shorts, skirts, and bathing suits out of the closet. This also means adding the extra time during our shower to shave. No more pants or sweats to cover up that hair sadly! I have to admit that shaving is my least favorite part of summer. It only takes a few minutes but I loathe feeling like the smoothness of my legs isn’t lasting as long as I would like it to.

Recently, Angie and I changed one step in our shaving routine as well as our razor, and it has made all the difference! Hello adventure, goodbye time wasted in the shower!

Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub

In the past, I have always gone straight to shaving with just my razor and shaving cream. Shaving isn’t that complicated, you know? Just use a sharp razor, rinse often, and shave that stubborn hair away! Except it has to be done like every single day OR you are left with prickly legs. There’s also the fear of someone noticing the hair on your legs while out wearing shorts. As a woman, we have enough to be self-conscious about. Hairy legs shouldn’t be one!

Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub

I actually found that using an exfoliant BEFORE shaving made all the difference with the longevity of my shave. Another simple step that means less time freaking out about the stubble on my legs? I’ll take it.

Exfoliating allows the skin to be free of build up dirt and skin cells which allows your razor to get ever closer to the skin than before. Without the build up on the top layer of your skin, your razor can reach much closer to base of the hairs on your legs, leaving you with a much smoother shave.

Currently, my favorite exfoliant, however, is the Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub Coconut Lime. Affordable, rich in ingredients, a wide selection of scents, and available at your local Walmart, Ulta, Target, CVS, and more! Talk about convenience.

Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub is also great for my shaving needs because it already has organic Shea Butter as well as other natural oils to keep your skin smooth and moisturized. Tree Hut Shea Sugar scrubs are also Paraben free, have no formaldehyde, and are made in the U.S.A.

Budget Friendly Razor For Sensitive Skin

Gillette Venus Smooth Sensitive

My friend Angie, (as well as Blog Writer for Beauty Brite), and I were discussing our shaving routines. I had mentioned to her how much I loved the added benefit simply from using the Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub. She surprised me with a recommendation of her own. The Gillette Venus Smooth Sensitive Razor. Here’s what else Angie had to say about the Gillette Venus Sensitive Smooth razor.

When you have sensitive skin, you often find it challenging to find the products you need that won’t irritate or cause your skin to have a bad reaction. Luckily for me, I may have finally found the perfect razor to get rid of hair without causing my skin too red and irritated. I’ve tried everything from those expensive razors that you need an assistant to use her keys to grab the product, to dollar store razors, and I haven’t had much luck – until now!

I haven’t used Gillette Venus razors is so many years that I can’t even remember what my feelings are about them. I was excited to have the opportunity to try the Gillette Venus Sensitive Smooth razor. Since this is the first sensitive razor that I’ve tried, so I have high hopes.

This razor has a SkinElixir Lubrastripâ„¢ for Glide and three curve-hugging blades that are dermatologist tested for sensitive skin. If you order these through the website, I love that they let you design your plan, allowing you to get the perfect razor for you.

As someone on a tight budget, it makes me happy that these razors are pretty affordable, and, of course, you can always find coupons in the Sunday paper to help you save more. They’re available anywhere you can find razors, so it won’t take forever for you to find these.

Gillette Venus Sensitive Smooth

This razor was amazing! It didn’t irritate my skin, and I got a nice, smooth shave. You can use this while in the shower or not, but it’s best to use shaving cream. I did it the old fashion way of just using soap, and I didn’t get as good of a shave. 

Have you used Gillette Venus Smooth Sensitive or Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub before? Let us know your thoughts on them!
