Get glowing 'Goddess Skin' with Venus & Olay (4 Stars)

Ugh, shaving. My least favorite grooming activity. Ever.


It's a family joke that we come from a hairy people and let me assure you, we do. One of my best friends only needs to shave her legs about once a month. It's possible I might be a werewolf because I could shave them in the morning and have stubble by dinner. It's not faaaair!

Turn that she-wolf into
a Goddess!
Alas, the she-wolf look isn't attractive and in winter when I let my legs go a week at a time my husband gets melodramatic about it. Thank goodness the weather is warming up a little so I'm feeling a little more motivated about shaving. Cute shorts, breezy sun dresses, and strappy tank tops demand well groomed legs and underarms!

I may not enjoy shaving but with the right razor and enough time even I will get the job done so I can don my favorite shorts and tank. While the time this busy mom needs to shave isn't always on hand, the right razor isn't hard to find.

I remember when Gillette first launched it's Venus line in 2001. The pretty turquoise handle and storage compact were genius. I stayed loyal up until the Embrace was introduced and decided to try a different brand for a while. Then I got lazy and didn't feel like switching again.

When Influenster's Love Voxbox arrived with the new Venus & Olay razor it was kind of like running into an old boyfriend while out on a date with your husband. Would Venus know I had been cheating with another razor? I calmed myself down and admitted I was glad to see my old beau since the new guy hadn't been making me very happy of late.

After four shaves with the Venus & Olay I'm quitting my current razor and coming back to Venus. Not to mention why no one thought up this genius pairing sooner.

The new moisture bars with Olay leave my skin softer and less irritated than it has been. They're so creamy and lathery I can shave my underarms without adding shaving cream. The only thing I don't like is that they're already half gone. That's the one thing I wish the moisture bars would do, last longer! 'Cause they're awesome. The 5 blades are a big improvement in how long my leg shave has lasted. I've managed to skip a day and not look like a lumberjack. The shower hook that comes with is perfect for my itty bitty cluttered shower too!

So who am I today? I guess today I'm the Goddess of Werewolf Taming. ;)
