The Very Cool Schick Quattro TrimStyle razor

This sponsored post is brought to you by Glam! Remember that time I told you I’d be reviewing the Schick® Quattro for Women® TrimStyle®? Well, I’m baaaack. I’ve had my eyes on this razor for years and I can’t believe I’m just now reviewing it. I’m not going to be hitting the beach and pools as much as I’d like to this summer but that doesn’t mean I don’t have to keep the hair situation in tact. Y’all know I have no issue with hair on the body but let’s face it, rockin’ shorts, skirts and swimsuits looks a lot better when you don’t have grizzly-like hair crawling up your legs. Trust me on this. And so the Trimstyle is crazy useful. I had a quick trip to NYC a few weeks back  and what better time to test drive a new beauty product than when you’re traveling?

Things To Love About The Schick® Quattro for Women® TrimStyle® Razor:
-The trimStyle razor and bikini trimmer is a battery-powered vibrating trimmer.
-The handle is easy to control.
-Portable. Although it’s heavier than the average razor, it is still small enough to toss in a bag.
-Contoured rubber handle. It doesn’t seem like a big deal but the rubber handle gives great control.

Gorgeous handle, huh? My biggest issue with shaving is that a lot of the times the handles just won’t fit nicely in my hands. I don’t have that problem with this baby. The battery-powered vibrating trimmer just needs 1 AAA battery and it is housed nicely in the handle. You won’t have to worry about any water seeping in. I’m not sure if the vibrating makes much of a difference when shaving but hey, it’s a nice little feature to have.

Perfect for taking on trips and for keeping in the shower, I’m adding this razor to my list of awesome razors. I’ve already got a few other Schick razors on that list so this kid will be in great company. So yes, my loves…if you’re looking for a razor this summer, I’d definitely take a look at this one.

Schick’s Hydro Silk. The razor you need in your life.

A new razor has hit town, y’all. And it’s a big deal. Laugh if you want, but if you’re like me and endure an insane amount of razor nicks from dealing with crappy razors, you know finding a GOOD razor is a serious, mega and colossal deal. Shick is bringing us their new Hydro Silk Razor. And uh…I hope this doesn’t seem to forward but you need to get one.

Like fo real fo real. This razor is amazing. And for several reasons.

  • This is Schick’s first 5-blade razor. Finally! Why the fellas always got 5 blades and us gals didn’t is beyond me.
  • There are skin guards on the top of the blades to help smooth the skin while shaving.
  • The inclusion of water-activated moisturizing serum is genius. I don’t know how it works but this lubricating strip stays slick for several shaves.

 

Oh, and then you’ve got the nice handle that makes moving around easy peasy .

Because I suffer from razor bumps, burns, nicks, scraps, cuts (you get the idea)…I like that the razor has 5 blades.

That means, I’m not only getting rid of the hair with one swipe, but my skin is left smooth and irritation free. It’s a fantastic razor, y’all.

If you can find it in your drugstore, get it with the quickness. It retails for $9.99 for a razor and 1 cartridge. I loves it.

In extremely random news, how beautiful was the sky the other day?

I have this thing for glaring up at the sky and taking pictures of it. It’s the little things, you know? I get this calming wave of relaxation when I look up at the sky. Even if it’s in the middle of a lunch break.

Summer shavin’ with Schick. And summer reading too.

Okay, raise your hand if you’re moderately hairy but still don’t shave on a regular. Yeah. I’m that girl. I’ve never been obsessed with shaving every day. Quite frankly, I find it to be too much of a hassle and too time consuming. But check this out…

Ta da!! It’s Schick’s Intuition! I know it’s nothing new but I have rediscovered this beauty of a razor and I’m in love. First of all, how beautiful is the handle? Gorg, right? You know how us women can be. Sometimes our beauty gadgets have to be pretty and decked out in colors for us to want to play with them. The limited edition Schick razors come in this and two other fun designs.

And you know what makes Intuition the coolest of all razors, right? It comes with built-in shaving cream.

Which makes it the perfect traveling companion. And with airlines charging extra for EVERY ounce in a suitcase, packing lightly  just makes sense. They come in 3 variations; Moisture with Pomegranate extract, Naturals with all-natural aloe and the Moisturizing Care Pack with milk and honey and shea butter. And it feels sooooo good on the legs. It lathers up with ease and the 4 blades handle the rest. As long as you keep this kid in a dry area, you should get a ton of use out of it.

So yes…Intuition is the business. Snag it from Drugstore.com for $8.99.

In other news…I’m reading again!

This is such a big deal because between blogging, freelancing, working with the day time  job and Earth Blend & Flower, I never really have time to read. But in attempts to find some sanity, I went and purchased  Little Bee and Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella and have been in literary heaven ever since.

I love real books. I still can’t get down with the e-reader, iPad, Nook, Kindle thing. Just…no. There’s something about the smell of an old and new book. Yes, I sniff books. You judgin’ me yet. Hehe!

Anyone else shaving their legs and reading this summer? 8)

Beauty Review: Venus Embrace razor


Well, it’s summer time in Florida.

I’m not even kidding, y’all. It is December and it was freakin’ 85 degrees the other day. I’m not complaining. You see, in Florida…we don’t have winters, we have cold fronts that come every 2-3 days or so. So while some of you can relate to the “weather outside is frightful”…I’m still wearing sleeveless tops, sandals and skirts.

Somebody out there is cursing me out, I know. I’m sorry. But what I’m not sorry about is shaving every day. Who really has time for that? I don’t! I am also a girl who isn’t ashamed of stubble either.

And that’s why Venus Embrace is for me.

What’s to be said about the Embrace:

“Embrace has several key features:

· Five curve-hugging blades positioned closely together and spring mounted to create a shaving surface that adjusts to the natural contours and curves of a woman’s body.

· A Protective Ribbon of Moisture that surrounds the shaving surface for smooth glide.

· A Soft Grip handle that improves control, even when wet.

· A ShowerPod® with suction cup attachments for convenient in-shower storage.”

This thing has 5 blades. Not 3, not 4 but FIVE! You know what that means? That means I’m shaving less. *love sigh* It also means my legs aren’t getting as much irritation from constant shaving. This is especially important for sensitive armpits. No wonder the Embrace was recently named one of Allure magazine’s 2009 “Best of Beauty” products. And they’ve won a good other 15 awards too. Well, make that 16!

I’m giving it the “Thanks to you I don’t have to shave every 5 minutes” award. Yay Embrace!

Ahh…now I can go back to frolicking in dew sprinkled grass.

…slick sexy legs and all!

Have you tried the Embrace? You can’t tell me it’s not awesome!

Beauty Review: Venus Spa Breeze Disposables

Hey summer mamas!

Have you had enough of the beach yet? What do you mean you haven’t gone because of your hairy legs? Giiirl, you better it together.

As a Floridian, I pretty much need to ALWAYS have my legs ready to go at any given moment. And I need a darn good razor that can rock my world and shave my legs effortlessly. Does Venus’ Spa Breeze razor do the trick? Or is a knick nack patty WACK of a razor? Dig the review.

…..and laugh at my joke. LOL!

Venus Spa Breeze Disposables

Price: 4 out of 5 ($7-$10 anywhere razors are sold)
Packaging: 3 out of 5
Overall: 5 out of 5

What it claims:
“With a beautiful blush pink handle, Venus Spa Breeze features flexible shave gel bars infused with the clean, fresh scent of white tea to indulge the senses while providing a close shave”



The truth:
Talk about a slick shave, mama! Woo!

What I loved about it: The scratch and sniff sticker on the packaging!


Okay, I’m kidding. I won’t tell you that I peeled the sticker off and put it on the back of my cell phone. Hehehe….but seriously, this is my first time I have ever used a razor with a “built-in shave gel bar”…but you know what? I can get down with this.

What I didn’t like: Dude, where’s my top? Not top as in shirt—I mean top as in “I want to cover the razor for traveling so that when I stick my hand in my cosmetic bag, I won’t slice my left pinky.” Not that I know from experience or anything.

Overall: The Venus Spa Breeze is quite the cutie….I mean, as far as razors go. Can’t deny how purty she is with the pink handle and shave gel bar. I like the nice grip you get with the handle too.

Speaking of shave gel bar…..it wanted to make a guest appearance.


Now one would probably be skeptical with these shave gel bars. You’re probably thinking one of the two.

“Those bars probably don’t last long.”

OR

“Those bars probably fall out after a few uses.”

Now you’re thinking, “OMG B…how are you reading my mind?” Yes yes, I know. I had the SAME questions and I am proud to announce that the Spa Breeze ‘s bars DO last for quite some time and they DON’T fall out. I have not had to change in a 2 months or so. And I shave pretty frequently!

The bars don’t fall out. Instead they kind of just…wash away. Which really isn’t a problem because then you go right back to using your regular shaving gel—or hair conditioner, if you’re like me.

As I mentioned, I would LOVE if these babies had some kind of top so that they would REALLY make for easy traveling. I’ve been having to stuff mine in Zip-Loc bags and c’mon….that’s so not cute. Aaaand, I would love to see it with 5 blades instead of 4. That would make for super close shave!

But other than that, I highly recommend these razors if you are in the market for some. I have featured the disposables but you can also purchase the entire system which includes the refillable razors, two cartridges and a shower compact for under $10.

Can’t beat that with a stick—as my Mommy would say!

So what do you think?
Have you tried this razor?
Want ‘ it?
Got any razor horror stories?

Shave on, sisters!
