Recently, Gillette Venus introduced the #SubsrcibetoSmooth challenge for bloggers and I’m glad to let you know all that I’m taking part in it! The concept of this challenge is to understand the whole process of shaving, one of the easiest hair removal methods; and to bust the myths related to it!
Starting from this week, I’ll be sharing my updates every week for the next 30 days! The idea of the challenge is to use the Gillette razor for the whole month to achieve smooth skin and a mess free shaving experience!
Why do I opt for shaving?: Summers mean mini dresses and shorts for me! When I don’t feel a bit hesitant wearing them anytime while staying at home, I always make sure to get rid of the hair on my legs to achieve a smooth skin, in case if I get the need to step out! Hair removal creams have been an horror till date since my skin is sensitive. Hence, I’m boldly taking the challenge this time to see how a month of shaving works!
Personally, I love smooth looking skin throughout the year! But the idea of using hot waxes and hair removal creams on my skin scares me, to be honest. Though I’ve only felt comfortable with hair removal creams till date, I won’t call them my best suit since they tend to change the texture, shade and softness of my skin in the long run! When I was eyeing out for an alternative, I happened to get an invite from the brand to join this challenge!
Since Gillette Venus razor has already been reviewed on the blog (here), I went through it once and felt comfortable taking up the challenge! The whole shaving concept seemed easy as well, as it is the least time consuming methods of hair removal!
One week of experience? : The Gillette Venus shaving kit contains the razor handle, the shower safe blade catridges and the Satin Care aloe vera shave gel! It has been only seven days and so far, I’m very impressed with the results. The razor gives a very smooth finish, without hurting my skin unlike few other razors I’d tried in the past. It has a very useful strip indicator and the grip is fine with the rubber handle. I’ve shaved my legs before wearing my knee length dress and again once, after 4 days. I had not faced dryness or any uncomfortable feeling on my skin. I’m yet to try dry shaving! In coming weeks, I’ll be talking more about it.
Where to buy?: You can easily get the product offline as it is available everywhere. It can also be purchased online from Flipkart here, here and here. The Gillette Venus razor is priced at Rs.199; the cartridges (pack of 4) is for Rs.449 and the complete gift pack costs Rs.849.
