First Giveaway!

Remember my showering routine?  How particular I am and how easily my day goes when my day starts with my perfect shower?  Well, I recently found my new love.  I love passing on good ideas and good finds and here is my new love.

I am a fast shaver, I am always on limited time in the shower because I'm rushing to shower, hair, make-up, dress, eat, clean, Facebook, email, all during one nap period.  Normally, I get about an hour and a half to get all of that done.  I need to be quick and efficient!

Part of my pre-baby life was that I wouldn't blink an eye about spending a little extra on little things.  I'd splurge on whatever it was I wanted, because really, it didn't matter.  Now, it matters.  I have to try and save every which way I can.

For the past few months, I've been in search of a razor that could compete with my $14 refills razor.  It was a good razor, never cut me, never had any issues at all.  But I can't afford justify spending that much money on a razor.  It's just stupid to me.  So I've been trying out the cheaper varieties to see if I could find a razor that would:  A) cost less B) not slice and dice my legs C) last more than a few shaves, to make it more bang for my buck.
I've tried about four different brands.  From the pink ones, to the orange ones (I even tried my husband's razors) and I was constantly getting those little cuts on my ankle that burn like fire and fill your tub with bloody water so that it looks like you're auditioning for the next Freddy movie.  Gross.

Finally, I found the answer.  *Ahhhhhh, the angels sing*  It's another pink razor but this one, is different.  The handle is what I initially noticed.  It's kind of got a high arch so that it's super easy to hold, doesn't slip out of your hand, and also gives the perfect angle for a fast shave. 

Secondly, I haven't cut myself yet!  I'm half way through my package of them and not one cut.  That is a miracle in itself.  Every brand that I tried post $14 refills, cut me.

Finally, they last! and last and last.  I shave daily, pretty much.  So I shave a lot.  I can get a good two weeks from one razor.  Maybe even longer.  Now that's nice. 

Oh, and finally again, they are cheap economical.  I only paid a few bucks for the pack.  You do the math.  That is pretty awesome.

So, what slice of heaven did I find?

They are the Noxzema Super Smooth Triple Blades.  I got them at Walmart.  And I'm in love.  Had I not already asked my new mom jeans to be my boyfriend, these totally would have been.  Maybe they'll be my next-in-line.  Cause I love them that much. 

I love them so much, that I wrote to Mr. Noxzema (not really, I actually just clicked on the "contact us" button on their website) and told them how much I loved them.  And I asked if they would be willing to share my love with a gift pack for my readers.  And by golly, they said yes!  Such nice people there at Noxzema Shaving!

Considering I only shave once a week. Not because I do not need it more but because that is about how often I get time to do it. I would love to try these. It will probably beat my hubbys razor by a mile :)

I definately need to try these razors instead of the battle ax of a razor I use now. I think I spend more time cleaning up the blood than it takes to shave.

Bethany said...

I absolutely love your blog and have for sure "liked" it!

Bethany said...

Also I forgot to say that I'm pretty sure I'm addicted to your blog. I get up in the morning and before I do anything I have to get on and see if there is a new one. Chet says that I'm a blog addict!

Bethany said...

I posted your link to my fb page!

TZel said...

Aight girlie! I have to try these razors! Right now I am using one of Travis's old razors (new blades of course, lol). I would love to get back to shaving with a women's razor but spending ugh... $14 on blades is something I have trouble doing myself.

And I "Liked" your FB page awhile back, I was one of the first! And I also follow you as well! Haha, maybe I'm a stalker! And I shared your link so I think I am up to 4 entries and if you give me a few I will definately blog about it!
