I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Whish Body. I received a promotional item and Whish Body samples to facilitate my review.We hope to help you achieve smooth legs this summer!
Summer weather is right around the corner and that means it is time to get the perfect shave so you can show off your smooth legs! Here are some top tips to help ensure smooth legs to look their best in your summer attire!
Top Tips for Smooth Legs
- Have the time- shaving when you are rushed often leads to nicks and cuts, but also sometimes you can miss things or not shave as closely.
- Shave in the tub- shaving in the tub offers you more room, ensure you have better lighting, not as rushed, but also allows your legs to take advantage of warm water.
- Use warm water- using warm water softens up your skin and preps it for the best shave
- Exfoliate – when you sluff off old, dead skin it in turn gives a smoother surface for your razor to glide across; but also helps make your razor last a little longer.
- The right razor- find the right razor for your legs! For me; it is a Man’s razor. No joke. Women razors just don’t give me as smooth of a shave. Also always make sure you have a clean razor that is sharp. Which means replacing them more often. But it will cut down on razor rash.
- The right shave gel- I’ll get into this more later. But using the right product to shave makes a world of difference.
- First pass; shave with the grain to remove longer hairs.
- 2nd pass; shave against the grain for an even closer smoother shave.
- Moisturize! After you shave, you have to make sure you put moisture back into your legs.
For me; shaving is a pain. Quite Literally! I have had allergic reactions to just about every shaving gel/cream I have tried. Far too many include chemicals and ingredients that react with my skin. And since developing eczema on my leg; it is even more crucial I use the right products.
For a few years now I have actually shaved without shaving cream or gels. Because they irritated my skin so badly. I have even tried conditioner in it’s place. But nothing was working well. Until I tried Whish Body shaving cream.
What is so unique about Whish body?
Whish Body Products provide an unparalleled treatment for the body. All Whish Products are Paraben Free, Sulfate Free, TEA & DEA Free, and Petrochemical Free and are all natural. In addition, Whish uses organic ingredients whenever and wherever possible, to create a luxuriously indulgent and soothingly moisturizing experience.
Whish Body shaving cream is more like a lotion than an actual shaving cream or gel. It comes out like a creamy lotion and as you spread it across your legs it appears as lotion as well.
I have been able to shave my legs with Whish Body without any skin irritation. In fact it actually soothes my skin to where it doesn’t itch and burn as much.
Then we can’t forget the Whish Body hair inhibiting gel! This is a fantastic moisturizer! You apply it after shaving. The first thing I noticed was the smell! It smells absolutely out of this world amazing! Mine smells like pomegranates.
It’s a clear gel that goes on smoothly and then immediately absorbs into your skin. No need to wait for lotion to air dry before getting dressed. It leaves my skin feeling amazingly soft and healthy. Plus if you continue to use over time; it can actually slow the growth of new hair! By weakening the hair follicle so that it grows straighter, Whish’s Shave Savour Hair Inhibiting Gel reduces hair growth by 30%.Which means even less shaving! I’m totally up for that!
