Spring Ready Legs + Giveaway

Many thanks to SheSpeaks and Gillette Venus for sponsoring this post and supporting the effort of smooth, Spring ready legs. I tend to slack off in winter when it comes to shaving my legs. They've been covered in pants or my thickest tights so that's one beauty treatment I put on the back burner. Pedicures too but we will not speak of that situation today.

As is appropriate for a bright sunshine day, I wore orange for its amazing skin tone enhancing properties.  I've discussed before how much the color orange agrees with me so it's no surprise I was attracted to the orange vintage dress from Goodwill. It has clean, classic lines and I adore the gold tone accents. It's simple but definitely a head turner being a super bright, vibrant color. Plus, there's the leg show which means it's time to bring the winter shave hiatus to an end.

Gillette's new Venus Swirl collection took care of the legs and made them smooth and soft to the touch.  The Venus Swirl razor is unlike traditional razors. It glides in multiple directions to reach spots other razors may miss like back of knees and near ankles. The FlexiBall™ on the razor really helped me achieve a more even shave. I didn't get dressed and curse the missed hairs with this one.

I was able to reach the back of my legs with ease. The ergonomic gripping design of the very cute violet hued handle provided outstanding control. My shave was close and complete with five blades that cut hair at a lower cutting force with thinner, finer edges — the thinnest in Gillette’s history.

The Violet Swirl Shave Gel protects skin against moisture loss and helps prevent missed spots. It smells amazing and left my legs baby soft.  The scent is light and floral. The gel is thick so a little goes a long way. The moisturizers include a hint of Olay and are 5 times more moisturizing than soap. It pairs very well with the Venus Swirl razor's water activated MoistureGlide™ Serum, Contour™ blades, and FlexiBall™ technology.
