All about leg shaving.

One of my favorite things in the whole world is having freshly shaved and silky smooth legs. I was lucky enough to be able to try out the new Gillette Venus Embrace Sensitive Razor and let me tell you, the experience was heavenly.

Not a single hair was missed. No irritation occurred. I was free from any and all dryness that usually occurs with shaving. My legs were in stubble-free bliss and I can only describe the experience as magical. If I haven't convinced you yet that this is the razor you should be using, then you must not shave or something. 

For those of you who do shave around here, let me give you a couple of my secrets to get the smoothest legs in town. I have two different routes I take. 

Option one: During the summer, I tend to be a bit obsessed with exfoliating and shaving. I mean, it's the summer- I'm getting tan and wearing shorts. All day, e'ry day. So about once a week, I make an exfoliant/shave gel from items in my kitchen. I combine one cup of olive oil, one cup of brown sugar, and two tablespoons of lemon juice in a bowl. Mix those items together and you have a recipe for the best exfoliant and moisturizing shave gel in town.

The brown sugar works as an exfoliant to get rid of all the dead skin cells on your legs, while the olive oil obviously works as a moisturizer and makes shaving a breeze. The lemon juice works as a toner which I particularly like when I'm working on that even tan. Seriously, try this now. You will love it and your legs will thank you for such a luxurious treatment.

Option two: During the winter, when I'm lazier about shaving my legs since I wear pants every day, I switch to using baby oil. You heard that right, baby oil.
I bought a huge bottle for like $3 and it's not running out anytime soon. It locks in your skins moisture and leaves your legs feeling silky smooth. If you're too lazy to make option one, then option two is definitely the way to go. It will change your shaving game and you will never buy expensive shaving cream again. 

And there you have it. You'll be able to jump into your cool, clean sheets with your hairless, baby-soft legs in no time. But seriously, isn't that the best feeling in the world?
