How To: Get Perfect Smooth Legs

The quest for smooth, hairless, sexy legs seems to be one which is ongoing – every week, there is some magic new product or treatment which promises gorgeous legs in a matter of minutes.

I have tried so many different methods to try and achieve perfect smooth legs: waxing (THE PAIN! And it wasn’t spectacular, even though it was professionally done!), using an epilator (never again – it made me want to scream. I probably did.) and, of course, good old fashioned shaving.

Luckily, I don’t have a massive problem in the leg hair department – being naturally fair, you can barely see hairs when they are there anyway. But I know they’re there, and I can feel them, so I have to get rid! A couple of weeks ago, I took the plunge and bought a relatively expensive razor – the Venus Embrace Razor in Pink (as well as 6 extra blades)

I had been put off buying a ‘proper’ razor for years due to the price of the refills, but finally bit the bullet. I bought the pair from Boots, where there was a ‘Buy One Get One Half Price’ offer on – I’m not sure of individual prices, but together they cost around £15.

I have been thoroughly impressed with the razor – my legs have stayed smoother for longer and I haven’t had one cut from the blades. When I was using disposable razors, my legs would be a mess of small cuts.

I don’t think  I will ever go back after using this razor – for me, it really is the key to perfectly smooth legs! Just to clarify – Venus have not sent me this product, nor have I been in any contact with them, nor do they know I’m doing this review. I’m being totally honest – I’ve found my holy grail razor!

I also adore the shape of the razor handle – it’s really easy to hold and grip, especially when you’re in the shower!

So, the secret has been sitting there on the shelves all along – I’m just glad I found it!

Stay Creative,

    I love these razors too! They’re so good. I got three of these razors at £1 each in a Boots sale, I was gobsmacked and stocked right up!

    I went through the exact same process about a year ago – I was sick of the disposable razors and how much they cut, and it made me reluctant and lazy because I found them really ridiculously uncomfortable. Then I got a Venus razor – I got the moisturising one, I think it’s called Divine – and I can’t even remember ever using anything else because I love it so much. I recommended the brand to my sister too and she’s much happier now too. I think they’re absolutely worth paying more for, even just because of how much more comfortable they are.

    Ya know it’s just dawned on me that I always read your blogs directly from my e-mail acct but I never take the time to click the link and comment. But just so you know, even though I havn’t said anything, I have been enjoying your blog posts. Always interesting and I love that you have such a variety! This razor looks awsome. I’ve never used this particular one but I may try it sometime.
    Hope you’re having a great day Chyaz!

    a good shaving creme is E.O.S (evolution of smooth) it makes your skin super soft and because it’s a creme it’s easier to shave the bikini line

      Thanks for the tip! x

    I love my Venus razor. I used to use the vibrance one but now I use the moiserizer line with the spa package. I justify the expense because then you don’t have to get shaving gel. The only problem with then is that the moisterizing part wears unless you dry it properly but the razor itself is still great. I will never wax again. Worst Pain Ever!
