While I was in New York I had a playdate with an old friend. We had a great time and I don’t know if it was the whole knowing each other since high school thing or the mom thing but we talked about pretty much anything under the sun. Literally under the sun, in a pool. Maybe that’s how the topic of shaving came up. We had two different philosophies, she shaves her legs pretty much every day whereas I prefer to avoid shaving them every day.
It’s not that I don’t enjoy some smooth legs but shaving can be a little time-consuming so when I do take the time to shave I make sure everything is perfect. No knee goes unshaved. No ankle gets missed. So naturally, when I had to Choose My Smooth I went with the Venus Swirl for the perfectionist in me. It has 5 contour blades and Flexiball technology that hugs every curve for the perfect shave.
Truth be told I’m a little bit of all three of these ladies. I think all of us can be. The multi-tasker in me says when you’re in the shower shaving your legs you should get as much done as you can like exfoliating for the perfect close shave and heck you might as well moisturize while you do it so what I like to call my Triple C exfoliating scrub was born. It’s the ultimate multi-tasker. The coconut oil moisturizes while the coffee helps reduce the appearance of cellulite and the clove essential oil? Well that just smells amazing! The on-the-go girl in me loves that the coconut oil leaves my legs slick enough to shave without anything else which means I can be quicker and carry less stuff with during my travels.
These Coffee and Coconut Oil Exfoliating Bars take just a couple of minutes to put together, the cooling of the coconut oil takes a bit longer but popping them in the freezer will make the entire process quicker than you would think. In a small bowl melt 1 cup of coconut oil in the microwave. Add 1/2 cup coffee grinds and 10 drops of clove essential oil to your melted coconut oil.
Pour the mixture into mini muffin tins or ice-cube trays.
Pop in the fridge or freezer to speed up the cooling process. Once they’re frozen store in an airtight container in the fridge especially during the warmer months.
When you’re ready to use them grab one or two from the fridge, let it warm up on the side of your tub while you shower then when you’re read rub onto your legs, rinse off and shave as usual.
Which girl do you relate to the most? Are you the Perfectionist like? Or are you the multi-tasker who wants to moisturize while you shave with Venus & Olay? Or maybe you’re always on the go so Venus Disposables are the one for you? Choose your smooth!
