For me, shaving has always been a dreaded chore. My legs are sensitive and don’t do well with daily shaving. Before I had kids when I had more time, shaving while in the bathtub helped a lot. These days I usually don’t have time for that. Over the years I’ve found that men’s razors typically give me a better shave. Until now. I’ve finally discovered a razor made for women that actually works, even in the shower!
Aveline (pronounced av-uh-leen) is a new ergonomic razor and line of products to dramatically change the female shaving experience. You can buy the products a la carte or choose a subscription option. I got a chance to try the whole line of cruelty-free, sulfate/phthalate/paraben free products and it completely changed the way I feel about shaving!
First off, allow yourself a few extra minutes to treat yourself to a more spa-like experience. Start with Aveline’s Salt & Sugar Scrub. This will help exfoliate and remove dead skin cells from your legs to give you a smoother shave.
Next, use Aveline’s Shea Butter Shave Cream. The moisturizing formula will help you get a smoother and more comfortable shave. Shaving creams help you to avoid knicks, cuts and razor burn!
Choose a good one. I’ve never seen anything like the Aveline ergonomic shaver but it’s clear that a lot of thought went into the design process. It features a 3+3 flexible blade cartridge and moisture strip containing lavender oil, aloe and Vitamin E. Three metal roller balls and the flexible blade head help guide the razor smoothly over lumps, bumps and curves for a flawless shave. This razor was designed specifically for women’s bodies. The razor features 6 hinged blades which pivot up and down and rotate side-to-side to follow every contour of your body.
The handle can be held four different ways. Find what is most comfortable for you! This handle is great for those that have difficulty handling a traditional stick type razor. The cap that goes over the blades, the built in stand and the compact size round out this full featured razor making my top choice for my personal shaving needs.
The lovely people at Aveline want you to know that, thanks to their breakthrough ergonomic women’s razor, it is now possible to treat your entire body to near-Brazilian wax smoothness simply by following their 5 Tips for a Crazy Good Shave:
5 Tips for a Crazy Good Shave, courtesy of Aveline
1. Prep it, baby!
Prepping the skin is the most crucial part of getting a close shave. Dry body hair is not only more uncomfortable to shave, but it can also damage your razor blades, so make sure to moisturize with water AND shaving cream before shaving. If you want to kick it up a notch, try exfoliating your skin before shaving. Removing any dead skin breathes new life into the skin, making it smoother for the razor to glide along. Check out Aveline’s Salt & Sugar Body Scrub for the perfect exfoliant to get your skin razor-ready!
2. Don’t drive the wrong way on a one-way street
When shaving, always remember to shave in the direction of hair growth to prevent irritation and ingrown hairs. If you’re looking for a closer shave, you can try shaving against the grain, but move carefully and use shaving cream! Try Aveline’s Shea Butter Shave Cream for an extra layer of protection for a seamless shave.
3. Choose your weapon carefully
Unfortunately, when it comes to a high-quality shave, many razors don’t cut it. Usually, the more blades in a cartridge, the more precise the shave will be. Make sure to find a cartridge that is encased in something that will moisturize the skin as you shave most cartridges include a moisturizing strip of aloe to soothe sensitive skin. Aveline cartridges come with six (6) blades AND a moisturizing strip of aloe, vitamin E, and lavender oil, ensuring you get a precise shave without drying out skin.
4. One pass is enough
A common mistake many people make when shaving is going over the same areas several times, thinking it will give them a better shave. Not true. Using a razor on just-shaved skin is a major cause of irritation and razor burn. Instead of going over the same areas multiple times, it’s better to use a razor that removes hair in just one swipe.
5.Hold the Lotion
Another common mistake is applying lotion immediately after shaving. Because freshly shaved skin is often incredibly sensitive, its best to wait for approximately 30 minutes before applying anything to it, as it is susceptible to stinging and irritation. If you can’t stand the feeling of skin without lotion, try moisturizing with something a little more natural that won’t aggravate the skin such as Aveline’s Botanical Body Lotion.
5. Shave by Moon sign.
