Summer. It's got so many great things going for it - sunshine, no school, the ability to have an afternoon beer while mowing the lawn. It really is the best time of year, isn't it? But there's one thing about these sunny months that lands pretty low down on my list of favourite activities - shaving. Now that's not to say that I don't de-fuzz this bod throughout the year, but I do tend to trim just a little bit more often when I'm constantly wearing short shorts, bathing suits, or tank tops that just announce those fuzzy parts to the world. Summer? Awesome. Shaving? Kind of a chore.
It's not just complaints about the actual shaving that I've got - it's the bumps, burns, and blemishes that can come because of it that really get to me. Like, I've spent my precious bath time cautiously slicing away every hair on my body, and I'm rewarded by nicks, scrapes, and ingrown hairs that have their own gravitational pull? Cool. Totally fair. Just what I wanted.
Smooth shaving, as we all know, is all about prevention. It's the preparation that leads to the best results, and Beauty From Bees is gliding in with a brand new Collaboration that I am oh-so-excited about. Because anything that makes my shave a little less irritating is a definite win in my books, and I bet it is in yours, too.
This new Shave Gel, a partnership with Primrose, is an all-natural way to get the closest shave, without the nasty chemicals or dangerous toxins that are found in so many shaving options. This gel is thick and luxurious, helping you glide your way to a shave that is free of irritation, leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth and absolutely pampered.
What's the secret? Seaweed Extract! This ingredient activates collagen production, helping to soften and smooth the skin while you tackle that stubble head to toe! With a mild mix of Fir, Pine, and Peppermint Essential Oils, this Shave Gel is perfect for every shaver in your house, without being too overpowering for anyone! Use it for faces, legs, and everywhere you de-fuzz in between, knowing you're using only the safest, most natural ingredients to help keep your skin as healthy as can be.
Shaving might not be my favourite summertime activity, but this new Shave Gel definitely makes it just a little bit more enjoyable, and the lasting softness and smoothness in my skin is a definite treat! Smooth, stubble-free skin? That's what summer was needing!
