With spring finally here and summer right around the corner, it is time to break out the cute dresses, shorts, sleeveless shirts and start to show off more skin. If you are like me and have been hiding most of your skin beneath lots of layers all winter, it might take some coaxing and a bit of TLC before you are ready to show off your skin with confidence. There is nothing worse than grabbing your favorite summer dress from the back of the closet and putting it on only to discover you have dry or hairy legs. Start prepping now and don’t be caught off guard.
I have been prepping my skin, particularly my legs, as I have been going back and forth to Florida recently. As my legs had been extremely dry, which was evident to anyone who glanced at them, I needed to take extra special care of them to get them ready for their big spring debut. To get my legs ready fast, I knew I needed to moisturize as I shaved them. You see, my legs needed to be smooth and look healthy so I could feel confident when showing them off. Does that make sense?
Shaving is a crucial part of the skin care routine, especially as we change seasons. And if there is one thing that I hate, it's dry skin. Choosing the right razor is the first step. I selected the Schick Hydro Silk® Sensitive Care Razor with Hydra-Boost™ Serum from Smith’s but you can find it at any Kroger store, too. My skin is quite sensitive and I’ve tried a lot of different razors, so as soon as I saw this razor I knew I wanted to try it.
I always use Shave Gel to protect my skin. I looked a bit further down the shaving section at Smith’s and saw all the Skintimate® Shave Gel offerings. There are a lot of varieties of Skintimate® Skin Therapy including Ultra Sensitive Shave Gel with signature scents like Signature Scents® Raspberry Rain® or Island Berry Breeze Shave Gel, but I ultimately chose to use Skintimate® Skin Therapy Sensitive Skin. Again, because I am more sensitive, especially as we come out of winter, I felt this was the best choice for me as it’s formulated with skin conditioners.
I am happy to report that my legs are hair free, and feel super soft and smooth after just one-time shaving with the Schick Hydro Silk® and Skintimate® Shave Gel combination. With the water activated Hydra-Boost™ serum that is clinically proven to hydrate even after you shave, my skin is soft and smooth as it moisturizes for up to two hours after shaving! I have not experienced any sensitivity with the Schick Hydro Silk® razor whatsoever, and it features unique skin guards to help protect skin from irritation. The Skintimate® Skin Therapy Sensitive Skin Moisturizing Shave Gel helped as the formula not only helps reduce irritation, but it is formulated with soothing Aloe and Vitamin E, which helps replenish skin’s natural moisture.
SHOP + SAVE
Shopping and saving is fun, am I right? Shopping for your razors and shave gel — especially when Smith’s and Kroger are running such great offers all the time — is especially fun!
