Summer is around the corner (yeah, already!) and we all know what that means: bare skin. After a mild but still drawn out winter, some of us may not be a beach ready as others when it comes to unwanted, er hair. Sure we can rush off to our wax/thread/laser salon and endure hour upon hour of hair removal services…..OR, we can rush off to our local drugstore and get a hair removal option that’s not only much cheaper and faster, it’s also — dare we say it —moisturizing.
For the first time ever, Gillette Venus, a global leader in female shaving, and Olay, a global leader in skincare, are coming together to deliver a gold standard in shaving with the new Gillette Venus & Olay razor. Olay Moisture Bars help lock-in moisture to your skin for less dryness, and with every smoothing stroke, Venus’ five blades shave you close, creating what Gillette Venus and Olay are calling Goddess Skin. We’re already kind of obsessed.
Although the razors are making their official debut on March 15th, we got a special sneak preview of the razor at a pre-launch party in the swanky Townhouse Spa. As a special guest speaker (and Goddess Skin inspiration to us all). Sports Illustrated model Chrissy Teigen was on hand to announce that Gillette Venus and Olay razor would be the first ever official razor of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit.
With Chrissy, we learned that Venus research has yielded numbers stating 60 percent of women claim skin concerns when it comes to shaving, including dryness, irritation, nicks and cuts. Additionally, 82 percent of women state they are somewhat to extremely bothered by dry skin . What they desire is ultra-smooth, beautiful skin…and the feelings of confidence and femininity that comes with it (aka Goddess Skin).
Also, in conjunction with the launch of the razor, Gillette Venus & Olay are also introducing Gillette Satin Care with a touch of Olay, as a perfect partner for the new Venus razor. Satin Care with a touch of Olay, contains Shea Butter and is specially designed for dry skin. Its moisturizing formula helps protect the skin against moisture loss during the shave.
If you’re like us and can’t wait to try out this heavenly match up of Gillette Venus and Olay, then visit their official Facebook page for more information and to pre-order your very own Gillette Venus and Olay razor! Or get in line with the rest of the world on March 15th, to scoop up your Gillette Venus and Olay razor at your local drugstore for only $8.99! After that, all that’s left to do is sit back and wait for the weather to catch up with our Goddess Skin.
