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!
