A Mother’s Intuition with Schick Intuition

Okay, what is this hairy legged creature? Oh, it’s MY leg.

20170625_164020

I USED to be the gal that always had silky smooth legs. I prided myself in making sure there was never a trace of stubble. And if I happened to forget to shave and needed to go to the doctor, and then the doctor had to see my leg or knee, I was horrified.

But, then motherhood intervened and blessed me with two beautiful children. My legs then took a back seat as did many other things that I used to care about. The focus was then placed on making sure my kids were properly cared for and that I gave them the attention they deserved.

Now, as they get older, my son is 9 and my daughter 8; I feel it is time to get a bit of “ME” back. I don’t know about the rest of you moms out there but I definitely have forgotten the most important thing for being a mom – taking care of myself.

Little things like painting my nails, shaving my legs, putting on make up, styling my hair rarely occurs these days because “I just don’t have the time” . 

Or, I guess I should say: As soon as I get in the shower, somebody needs something or there is a crisis going on. Whether it be our new pup getting something she shouldn’t have and the kids can’t get it from her, or someone not being able to get their favorite app to work, or someone’s got to pee, it seems moms ALWAYS get interrupted by a yell or banging on the bathroom door. That’s pretty much why my normal bathroom routine for the past 9 years has been: jump into shower, get wet, wash hair, wash body, and get out , all within 5 minutes.

Now, my kids can wait a few minutes and watch tv or color or play a game while I have a shower and take a few extra moments for myself. Shaving my legs included.

 Schick Intuition has managed to make shaving my legs even less time consuming.  I got the shaver wet and started shaving my legs, nothing else was needed! You’ll see in the video how quickly I was able to shave my sasquatch legs – only 1 little knick and COMPLETELY smooth legs, not a single stubbly hair left!

This razor has lasted me 3 more shaves and still is not dull and still has lots of the bar of soap around it. I think it would be safe to say that it will last a month of shaving, maybe even longer depending on how often I shave.

The  Schick® Intuition® Advanced Moisture Razor has 4 wonderous blades that are sharp but not so much that you get a thousands knicks on your legs while shaving.

The soap bar (formulated with shea butter ) that encompasses the blades lathers up great but not so much that I would have to re-shave an area at least 4 times like I do when using gels/foams.

The Schick® Intuition® Advanced Moisture Razor shaved minutes off shaving my legs as well as shaving the hair off my wooly mammoth legs!

Now I am slowly taking extra time for me, at least every 3 days, which definitely keeps me feeling and looking good!

Product Review – Dove Hair Products

 

Recently, thanks to ChickAdvisor, I was chosen to partake in testing out some of Dove‘s new product lines. Dove Pure Care, Refresh + Care, Style + Care and Dove Nutritive Solutions.

20160216_063427

I first tried out the Daily Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner from their Nutritive Solutions line.

20160216_063443

First let me just say that these products smell divine!

Mind you, I think all of Dove‘s products smell great.

You definitely only need a pea sized amount of product which means that your bottles should last you a long time. AKA – Great value for the price!

This shampoo and conditioner combo leave your hair feeling healthy and silky smooth!

Next I tested out the Dry Oil from the Pure Care line of products. I had never heard of Dry Oil before so I really wasn’t sure what to expect.

Infused with African Macadamia Nut, this is another one of Dove’s products that does not let you down with its pleasing aroma. 3-4 drops is all you need. Apply it to the ends of your hair.

The oil is great for repairing damaged ends, but, it gets better! Apply some throughout your hair before blow drying. As the oil heats up from the blow dryer it distributes more evenly throughout and improves the saturation into the hair. Instead of flyaway or damaged ends your hair will look smooth, shiny and healthy.

Last but not least, I tried the Pure Care Dry Shampoo. I had heard a lot about dry shampoos but I was extremely skeptical about using it. I usually shampoo my hair everyday as when it comes time to brush it out the following day the roots are looking mighty oily.

But, some mornings are rushed…trying to get two kids ready for school and myself ready for work and I really wanted an option for mornings when I was rushed without having to go to work with greasy looking hair.

Here’s what my hair looked like when I woke up….

See pretty nasty. There was no way I was going to work looking like that.

I had no idea how much to use or even how to use it…but, the instructions were pretty easy to follow….spray into hair and use your palm to rub into the roots, and then brush out…..seemed easy enough.

The product leaves a white powdery coating to your hair:

As you are brushing it out, I would suggest not already having your work clothes on as you’ll have white dandruff looking flakes all over you:

Once I got it all brushed out, my hair had a texture as if I had just sprayed it with a light-hold hairspray and looked like this:

But, I wanted to wear my hair up not down, so this is what it looked like when I was finished:

I’ve used it a few times since. However, I have a mild case psoriasis on my scalp so this product did tend to make my head a bit itchy.

And finally I tested out the Flexible Hold Hair Spray(on a different day, unfortunately no pictures). It did not make my hair stiff or sticky. It held my flyaways in place and gave enough hold for some “scrunch action”.

Overall these products earn an 8/10 from me. Many thanks to Dove for continuing to create amazing products and to Chick Advisor for allowing me the opportunity to test out some great products!

LashBlast – Clump Crusher by CoverGirl – Product Review

Lashes are Loving it!

covergirl

This mascara is AMAZING! I went from having thin, blonde, barely there lashes to stand out noticeable Lashes! I love the curved wand that was not hard and stiff. I love how smooth the mascara went on, coating my lashes. My lashes did not stick together, each one had perfect coverage.

I was telling my best friend Shelley (who wears make up everyday) about this awesome mascara that I just reviewed for BzzAgent.

I described how it went on smooth like butter and didn’t clump and was amazing….she asked me what kind it was…

I said it’s by CoverGirl the new Lash Blast line…

she said “Is it the bottle green?”

I said “yes”

She said “That’s Clump Crusher! I use it all the time it’s my favorite!”.

It was so weird that she not only new what i was talking about but that she has been using this same mascara for a long time!

If you are looking for quality mascara at a reasonable price you really need to try CoverGirl’s line of LashBlast mascaras.

“COVERGIRL LashBlast Mascara offers not one but four wildly different ways to power up your lashes. The original LashBlast Volume Mascara increases volume up to 10 times. Clump Crusher can build serious volume with zero clumps. Fusion combines volume with incredible length, and Full Lash Bloom leaves lashes touchably soft and full. Whatever look you crave, COVERGIRL has a blast for every lash!” ~BzzAgent

And lucky for you I have a few $2 off coupons to give away ! But, I’m only giving away 4 of them… LOL

I’m keeping 1 for myself! 😉
