How to Get THEE Smoothest Legs without Shaving!

I’ve been doing the following for a while now and wow, I must say, it works! Just use any VEET hair removal cream or lotion (I like their Spray On Cream Hair Remover Sensitive Formula with Aloe Vera & Vitamin E and also their Fast Acting Gel Cream Hair Remover Tube with Essential Oils) and leave it on for the few minutes as recommended and then squeegee it off with LE EDGE exfoliating tool instead of the spatula the Veet products comes with. Not only are you removing the dead skin from your legs with the Le Edge but you are removing the Veet along with the hairs. I mean you have to use something to remove the Veet and hair so why not this super close skin exfoliating tool? My legs have never felt this smooth for this long before. Try it! You’ll be a convert.

Le Edge Full Body Exfoliator – choose from blue or pink for $6.45 @ amazon.com.

Veet available for $6.99 and up @ drugstores nationwide.

Let me know if you try this and how it works for you!!

What’s On Your List for Hair Removal this Season?

Topping mine is my favorite brand to use, VEET. Shaving? Too time consuming. Waxing? OUCH! Tria? Didn’t seem to ward off hair in the long run, so dipilatory creams have become my go-to.

And they just came out with a new product, the  Easy Wax Electrical Roll-On Kit ($39.99). Now I love the creams and as I mentioned with an ouch above, wax? Not for me but I might give this one a shot to see but removing hard wax from my skin is just torture. It’s a plug-in-and-warm-the-wax-up system that contains the wax warmer, wax refill, 24 hair removal strips and 4 Perfect Finish Wipes. And they claim 28 hair-free days. Hmmm, now that last part makes it tempting.

VEET-Easy-Wax-Kit
Ones I would recommend that are totally painless and virtually odorless are their Spray On Cream Hair Remover, 2-Step Facial Hair Cream Kit Hair Remover and their In-Shower Hair Removal Cream Sensitive Formula with Aloe Vera & Vitamin E.

Goto veet.us for online locations or just visit your local drugstore.

Spring Skin Must Haves

Spring-Skin-Must-HavesCLINIQUE Moisture Surge CC Cream Hydrating Colour Corrector Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($35  @ clinique.com) – when their Moisture Surge products speak, I listen. Out this month is the next letter in the alphabets do-it-all product (for a breakdown of BB, CC and soon to be DD creams, click here). In a nutshell this one is Colour Correction, Hydration and Protection. Available in 6 shades.

BLISS “Fuzz Off” ($24/.5oz @ blissworld.com) – This is a “super-fast fresh-scented facial hair remover” and as we get older, who can’t use one? I admit, I can in certain areas of my face and this one is non-messy and contains aloe, willowherb and vitamin E and it works in 3 minutes.

KIEHL’S Skin Rescuer ($40/2.5oz @ kiehls.com) – loving this latest release from Kiehl’s. It addresses all your skin’s short term and long term concerns in one bottle. It ups the hydration, improves fatigue and contains Rosa Gallica Botanical Extracts and Mannose, which they found helps with the skin’s reaction to stress and to help it bounce back.

BIOELEMENTS Oil Control Mattifier ($36/1oz @ bioelements.com) – oil ain’t sexy! Think of this cream as the blotting sheets you would have to use in a few hours should you not applied this one. And with the heat, your makeup is sure to slid off without it. If you’re a matte girl, this is your matte wish!

WHISH Hair Inhibiting Swipes in Pomegranate ($8/8pack, $20/20pack @ whishbody.com) – not sure how these work but I’ve been testing them on my left arm and I must say, they seem to be making the hair less noticeable. And this has some great ingredients in the wipes – Chaparral Extract (an anti-oxidant), hyaluronic acid, aloe and Shea Butter, among others.

This Product WILL Change Your Life

Over my lifetime, I’ve tried all different kinds of hair removal – waxing (ouch), plucking (double ouch), shaving (dealable but have to do it too often), depilatory creams (for specific areas of the body, perfect, but not for all), and the ultimate professional laser hair removal (tried a few times but too expensive for my pocketbook, as much as I wanted to continue doing it.

When I first heard of the TRIA, I thought, it’s about time, an at-home laser for hair removal. Finally, I can stop contemplating the Groupons I see for professional laser treatments and put the process in my own hands, literally.

Tria-Beauty-hair-removal-laserThis 9 1/2" tall device is the first FDA-cleared  hair removal mechanism for at-home use. It has 5, what they call, comfort settings so you can set how strong the laser is depending on which area you are treating. The only downside is that it’s not for all skin tones – those with light to medium and naturally brown or black hair will benefit most but those with red, white, gray, or blond hair won’t benefit. Give it time! They’ll come out with one that will treat you too, I’m sure.

So how did this one work? Well, I’ve been using it every two weeks (on Sunday eves) since late November and at this point, I think I have about 70% of the hair on my legs, arms, underarms and bikini area gone or at least significantly slowed its production. It’s odd but a few of the areas seem to have taken to this better than others. Like the 5 or 6 hairs that grow on my two big toes (I inherited this from my dear father) are gone, the hair growth on my legs below the knee has pretty much stopped, with the exception of a stray hair here or there. My underarms have not taken to this as well as I’d hoped but I’m still going to use it every 2 weeks until it stops. I’m determined and what do I have to lose, besides hair?

Choose from Blush or Green for $449 @ triabeauty.com.
