#SubscribeToSmooth Challenge – Week 1

By  |  4 Comments

I recently took up the Gillette Venus #SubscribeToSmooth Challenge and as mentioned in my recent post about the Gillette Venus event (click here for it), I’ll be sharing my experience on a weekly basis here for a month.

Today I’ll share Week 1 results but before that, here are a few pictures of the products:

Since I have been using razors or shaving as a method of hair removal for years now, I was comfortable with the razor but of course a better make for the grip with the Gillette Venus, surely helped. Plus this razor is not one of those use and throw ones we had as only available option, you can buy the blades pack and keep changing the blades as per usage. 

Further, it’s one of the common myths that shaving leaves your skin dry and flaky! Trust me it does not. Especially after shaving with Satin Care shaving gel, which has aloe extracts, the skin actually felt smooth and soft. The Gillette Venus razor and gel together will really make your life easier. You won’t have to run to a salon every time you need to go out. Another thing about waxing is, you have to wait for the entire hair growth to wax again, but with shaving you can shave as an when you want and it barely takes 5-10 minutes! Plus it’s painless (unlike waxing or an epilator) or never itches or burns (unlike hair removal creams).

If you’re a beginner at shaving, take your time to get used to it. Don’t rush into shaving and try getting comfortable with the razor first and gradually you’ll get used to it. I remember when I started shaving, I would spend 15 minutes on one of my leg and now do both in 5 minutes (or even quicker!). 

I usually shave while taking a bath so as a habit, I apply some moisturizer any way, which further keeps my skin moist and supple. However, shaving has nothing to do with skin dryness. 

I am definitely sticking to Gillette Venus Razor and Gillette Satin Care Shaving Gel!

Also, in case you guys are wondering, here’s the hair growth after a week of shaving:

There’s almost no hair growth on my arms but on the legs there’s little growth, which is mostly because of my hair growth cycle. The hair isn’t coarse either but we will get to more such details in the next post.

    I think you should switch to shaving gel, you’ll feel the difference yourself not just in terms of ease of shaving but how the skin feels too 🙂

    I’ve been using this razor too since a few months. Truly the best one I’ve used till date. Love it. But I haven’t used the shaving cream. I use a conditioner to shave.
