Slice Slanted Soft-Touch Tweezers

Friday, February 15th, 2013

eraseAfter seeing a write-up in Allure on Slice Slanted Soft-Touch Tweezers, we decided to give them a try. Designed by famed architect Michael Graves, they have a soft-touch rubberized finish for a better grip and hand-filed precision tips. We figured that it wouldn’t be any better than Tweezerman, which in our opinion, is the most high quality brand. The unique design for the Slanted Soft-Touch Tweezers takes some getting used to. However, after using them for awhile we really liked them. The rubberized finish actually does make a difference; the tweezers stay put instead of slipping through your hands. And of course the tips are great at grabbing fine hairs. We aren’t sure if they are more effective than Tweezerman tweezers, but they are definitely just as good. The only thing is that Slice tweezers aren’t easy to come by in stores and we had to order them on line.

Tend Skin

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

With bikini season in full swing, we thought we’d give Tend Skin a try since it’s a solution that treats razor bumps on all parts of the body. s. The solution is said to lessen razor bump swelling, fight ingrown hairs and sooth razor burns, and can be used on any areas where irritation might occur. We liked the way it worked, and recommend the 2.5 oz.  refillable roll-on container in particular because it doses the solution for you, making it easier to apply and airport security friendly.  The only downside is that this solution is not easy to find at stores – it costs around $14 once you add shipping and handling.

Gillette Venus & Olay Razor

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Since Gillette is the leading brand for women’s razors, it’s always interesting to see what they’re going to come up with. We tried their Venus & Olay Razor and thought it was fantastic. It has 2 large Olay moisture bars that lather so you can go without shaving cream, although we still preferred using it with shaving cream. At first, it felt strange to use with the big bars, but you get a very close shave with the 5 blades. It may seem that 5 blades is overkill, but it actually helps make your razor last longer. Gillette recommends you use the razor until the bars wear down or the blades feel dull. We found that you can use the same razor for weeks before the bars wear down!

Sally Hansen Pure Scent-sation Hair Remover for Face

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

If you have unwanted facial hair, the best way to go is depilatories or waxing. Waxing can be painful and inaccurate while depilatories smell so unpleasant it’s hard to ignore. Sally Hansen’s Pure Scent-sation Hair Remover for Face is a depilatory but it’s said to be ‘virtually odor-free’. We tried it and thought that it was a great product. It’s not odor free, but we agree with the other 93% of women they surveyed who thought it was the freshest depilatory they ever used. This hair removal cream also has the perfect balance of gentleness and effectiveness. It doesn’t burn your skin but it doesn’t leave hair behind either. Pure Scent-sation Hair Remover doesn’t take all day, you only have to leave it on for 3 minutes (8 minutes max). We loved the little spatula it comes with (because who really wants depilatory on their hands?) and the pump that makes it so you control exactly what you put on the spatula. It keeps the formula fresh too. Overall, while this depilatory is not completely odor-free, it’s definitely the best smelling one out there.  Good news! If you want to try a Sally Hansen hair removal product they have a coupon for $2.00 online –

Gillette ProGlide Power Razor

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

Gillette’s ad campaign for their new ProGlide Power Razor caught our eye so we decided to give it a try. One male tester couldn’t believe how easy this was on his skin. This razor features thinner blades with a coating that makes them glide over skin. If you get razor bumps, it’s a must to have a razor that doesn’t tug and pull. Ladies, if you have very sensitive skin or are prone to irritation you may want to give this one a try. It’s extremely gentle – just keep in mind that since this is designed for delicate facial skin you won’t get as close of a shave.
