Last week, Gillette Venus had held a blogger's meet to raise the awareness of shaving in women. Present in the occassion was renowned dermatologist Dr. Reshma Shetty, celebrity makeup and beauty expert, Namrata Soni and Bollywood sweetheart Kriti Sanon. The aim of the event was to break the common myths, related to shaving in women. However, I was not in town and could not be a part of the event.
Dr. Shetty and Ms.Soni covered the skin-friendliness of shaving, highlighting on the safest and fastest aspects. Both of them were glad that they could initiate the idea of shaving as a safe way to get rid of unwanted hair, contradicting the usual beliefs. Dr. Shety said,"In reality hair growth is determined by one’s genetic and hormonal makeup. I am confident that from platforms like these we will be able to bust such myths and impart knowledge about how shaving is one of the safest methods.”In Namrata Soni's words, " . While hair removal is a key part of everybody’s beauty regime, we need to also ensure that we use the method that best suits our skin type. Personally, I believe that shaving is one of the safest and most convenient methods and is suitable for all types of skins”.As per Kriti Sanon, "The best part of shaving is that its hassle free and takes minimal time and enables one to be ready for any occasion at all times”.
Although I could not attend the event, I have taken up the #SubscribeToSmooth 30 days challenge with Gillette Venus. Here are the 5 reasons:
1. I am lazy and look for methods that require less effort for hair removal
2. Time is very precious to me and I want to make the process of hair removal quick
3. I am a cleanliness freak and dont like the idea of wax and other creams making my carpet soil
4. My body skin is dry and sensitive and I do not want to get rashes by using creams/waxes
5. Like my skin, my nose is also sensitive and I simply hate the unpleasant smell of wax and creams
My Experience after the First Week of Gillette Venus #SubscribeToSmoothChallege
I have used razors before, and somewhat know what to expect. However, the Gillette Venus proved that what I had known before about razors was insufficient. The Gillette Venus razor has the smoothest blade that instantly uproots hair without making the skin dry. There is not even a single patch of white, that we generally get from shaving. The process is much faster than I had thought and the skin is left feeling soft and silky.The first week of the use was so good that I cannot wait to use it for the second week and write about my experience.
Some Tips for Shaving:
- Try using a good quality razor
- Use it with a shaving gel (like Gillette Shaving gel) for better results
I will share my experience for the second week of my Gillette Venus #SubscribeToSmooth challenge sometime next week, meanwhile if you have any question related to shaving, please feel free to ask in the comments section below and I will cover those in my next blog post. Also, it would be great if you have some ideas or tips for shaving, to share with us.
