Gillette Venus #SubscribeToSmooth Challenge Update #3: Shaving Myths Busted!
It’s already October and I didn’t even realise it!! Where did this year fly by?? Seems like I blinked and suddenly went from January to October. I also did not realise that it has been a month since I’ve been using only one hair removal method and one that I didn’t realise I would love so much. I’m of course talking about shaving!! You can read all about my experience with shaving and how I got started on my journey here.
Since I started shaving my legs almost four weeks ago, it has totally become my go to method for quick hair removal. I now reach for my razor even without thinking!! And this coming from someone who was a solid believer in waxing and never ever missed a single waxing appointment!! So much so that all the parlors in my area knew my preffered wax flavor and the exact time of the month and day that I’d be coming to get my legs waxed.
It has been an enlightening journey for me converting from waxing to shaving and I’m actually really glad that I ended up taking this challenge. I now don’t even have to go anywhere with even a single unruly hair on my legs.
Shaving for me, prior to taking up the Gillette Subscribe To Smooth challenge, was something that I would only resort to if there was an earthquake or a tsunami and all the parlors in my area were crushed underneath the debris….Basically what I mean was shaving was something I totally never ever did. Waxing was the way of life for me. I’m pretty sure you guys remember how apprehensive I was when I decided to take it up!!
And look at me now. I’ve totally converted to shaving and I’ve actually started enjoying the comforts of shaving.My Gillette Venus razor has lasted me a good three weeks easily and the razor cartridges make life so much easier. It still is pretty on point and gets rid of all my hair easily. I totally think it is such a value for money!! Imagine spending thousands of rupees on waxing bills versus a meager (how much ever the razor costed) for the razor!! I don’t even have to worry about hair removal during my time travelling, I can just chuck this little thing in my travel bag and I’m all sorted.It also takes me sooo little time to be hair free. Literally ten minutes in the shower and I’m pristine smooth!! No headache of even getting dressed and spending hours at a parlor trying to make small talk with the who’s who of the parlors!! 😉
I’ve also discovered that a lot of the beliefs surrounding shaving are complete and utter rubbish. I did not suffer any skin dryness, patchiness or any other kind of nonsense that prevails the internet when you decide to look up shaving. Myths surrounding shaving are just that..Myths!! Shaving has totally changed my perspective on hair removal and it has in a very short amount of time become my preferred method of hair removal.
During this past month, I have also discovered a few tips and tricks that have helped me on my shaving journey. I thought I’d do a post compiling all the information that you need to know about shaving so that you will not be misguided like me!! Keep an eye out for the post coming up within the next few days!!
