Beauty Time Tuesday

Recently, I found this tip on Pinterest and I just HAD to share.  This may be a little TMI but I'm ok with that....I normally have to shave my legs EVERY SINGLE day to keep them smooth.  I swear my hair grows 1/4 of an inch over night.  (ok - not that much - but you get the point)  And let's be honest, I'm lucky if I shave 3 times a week!  My apologies go out to my dear hubby for my laziness.  Sorry babe!  The ONLY person I know that shaves her legs every night is my mom.  She seriously NEVER misses a night.  Crazy, I know!!  Unfortunately, I didn't inherit that OCD gene from her.  Stacks of paper are always straight and shoes lined up - but legs are not shaven every night.  :)  

I tried this trick out last Thursday night and my legs were smooth until tonight and still, they really weren't that bad.  Five Days!  FIVE!!!!  Drum Roll, please...

What you'll need....
Shave Gel
Sugar Scrub - you can make your own by mixing sugar and olive oil

I normally just use left over conditioner to shave with so I ran out and bought this Skintimate Flirty Mango Shave Gel.  It smells amazing!  I also had this Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub on hand.  By the way, I LOVE this stuff.  If you haven't tried it, you need to.  It smells like coconut and makes my skin feels silky smooth.  I also used a disposable Gillette Venus Sensitive razor.  I've never been big on the razors that you keep forever and just change the heads.  I'd rather just throw the whole thing away and start fresh with a new one.  Plus, I like to change up my razor color :)

After being in the shower for at least 3 minutes (supposedly, this softens the hair and makes it easier to shave or something), lather on the shave gel and shave.  Now here's the important part that makes all the difference...  After shaving with the shave gel, rinse and apply your sugar scrub then shave again.  Yes...shave WITH the scrub on.  You'll have to rinse your razor often when doing this.  Now rinse off the scrub and enjoy your smooth gams!!  

What fun beauty tips have you tried and loved??

Wow! You've convinced me! I too have to shave daily for smooth legs but in all honesty more like every other day does it actually happen.. Thanks for the tip!

I'm a huge fan of the 'Tree Hut' scrubs!

I am the girl with barely any hair - but that also means that the hair on my head is crazy fine. You win some, you lose some. Boo!

But, I am going to totally give this a try! If I could get away with shaving once every two weeks (instead of weekly) it would rule!
