Is Venus Gillette Platinum Razor For You?

Whether shaving is not part of your routine or not, you still need a dependable razor for SOS days, you need it on the go. There is always that transitioning phase where you just can’t use anything but shaving.

As for me, I live in Florida and Florida living gets intense… humidity, pools, boating, overheated cars during hot temperatures and spring hot-cold days!

You need a great razor or you will get stuck with a pants day on an accidentally hot day in the middle of spring.

So let’s talk Venus Gillette Platinum performance.

Venus Gillette Platinum Razor Style

Finally, Venus Gillette created something more elegant and classy, although shaving is supposed to be fun (hence all the fun colors).

Style has changed over the years and I feel in the times of rose gold, chrome and yellow gold elements with marble everything these days there is a need for some luxury looking razor that screams style.

If I am leaving it on the counter, I don’t want all those colors to pop like I’m in teenager’s bathroom. So Venus Gillette THANK YOU for something I can leave out on the counter next to my boyfriend’s high-end stuff and not to look tacky and ‘teenagie’.

Maybe one day you can create a luxury high-end edition. There is a market for it for sure. 

Venus Gillette Platinum Razor Efficiency

Efficiency: I am very active and quite fit and defined, a big part of my style is athleisure (athletic and leisure clothing) so leggings and skinny jeans are a big part of my wardrobe.

 Whether I am wearing an organic cotton leggings or synthetic I don’t want anything to poke through it, so I have to rely on quite an efficient razor, so I don’t have to have a time-consuming inspection of my legs.

I have noticed that 5 razor blades tend to do the job. If time management is a big concern of yours 5 razor blade is more efficient and more trustworthy (perfectionists can rejoice now).

Metal elements on the handle added not only style but also a sense of control and certainty to the movement. I have noticed the additional weight of the razor felt unusual at first but felt more smooth and more balanced during shaving.

A lot of people expected a full metal handle and were left disappointed that it had plastic elements, too. Personally, I feel like it was a good amount of both.

Lifting Venus Gillette Platinum razor left me feeling a little bit nostalgic due to heavier metal elements. It reminded me of my Dad’s vintage razors for a second or two.

Venus Gillette Platinum Razor Navigation

Metal part reduced pulling and glided better than just plastic alternatives. I wasn’t sure whether I liked the plastic elements on it at first.

But once I started shaving I realized that they were essential to the grip in-control feeling during the shave.

Venus Gillette Platinum razor navigated all the tricky places like kneecaps, behind the knees, back of the leg areas, ankles and underarm (my underarm is especially tricky), which was impressive. 

The head did not feel too large or awkward, its mobility was pretty impressive.

How long the results from Venus Gillette Platinum Razor last?

I would say the shave lasts two solid days (although if you shave a lot and you take hair vitamins and supplements it can sure alter the days your shave lasts). The third day was tolerable (although I would shave again that day). The fourth day felt okay, but I would change shorts for capris. Do shave on the fourth day.

For how long you can use Venus Gillette Cartridge? 

 

You can totally use the blades for several weeks. To prolong the life of the razor try to use it in cold or warm water.

Venus Gillette Platinum Razor Price

The price point around $8.99 with one refill or $12.99 with 2 refills.

Review: Coconut🥥 1 Minute Hair Treat : Conditioner, Mask and Leave-in By Garnier Fructis

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Hey, there gorgeous!

I am getting at lot of questions on my Instagram and in person about my current hair routine, so I’m in the process of writing ✍️ blog post of my complete hair routine for curly hair🧖‍♀️💁‍♀️ (If you hair is dry, it will work for you, too)

While I was working on the post I received a Vox Box and tried Coconut🥥 1 Minute Hair Treat from Garnier Fructis 🌱, so I decided to put up a review on it really fast.

I don’t know about your hair, but my hair loves shampoos from Garnier Fructis 🌱, but no matter how good product can be I have to rotate products pretty often for both my hair and skin, because my hair and skin adjust to products so fast.

I gave it a try, their formula is 100% vegan 🌱 , no silicones 🌱, no parabens🌱, no artificial colors 🌱(so the bad stuff is out).

Most of the hair masks you have to leave on your hair for half an hour or so, and truth be told I haven’t expected much results in just one minute…

But to my surprise it showed pretty decent results for 1 minute mask…

☑️Results☑️:

👌 It really shows a lot moisture right away (and I mean you can feel it right away within seconds on your wet hair) and really intense gloss!

Here are the results before and after in intensely humid conditions of Florida (that day I had the windshield wipers on it was that humid).

This is before picture:

This is immediate after as it was drying out:

This is final styled:

👌 you can use it as a mask, as a conditioner and leave-in. My favorite combo is to use it as a mask and a conditioner

👌 It did not weigh my hair down at all it was really easy to manage and felt light 💁‍♀️

👌🥥 coconut 🌴 oil and extract are really good for your hair: anti-fungal, antibacterial. It actually penetrates your hair shaft and delivers nutrients and minerals to keep it healthier.

👌 I did not smell like coconut 🥥 right after. It smelled rather clean with barely any 🥥 smell.

🙍‍♀️Thing I did not like 🤦‍♀️:

🤷‍♀️ I’m not sure 🤔 but it seemed to really frizz up towards drying but it was pretty easy fix: I took some of it and used on damp hair. It fixed the problem. Although I have to admit that humidity was rather extreme that day. 🤷‍♀️ It did not provide any volume at all. It never claimed it would though, although it did make up for it with hair manageability.

💡💡💡 Final thoughts 💡💡💡:

Will it be my all time favorite?

As a time saving product and to get results on the go. Garnier is on the right track though eliminating all the bad stuff from their products 🙌🙌🙌 Really impressed with the glossy hair results.

I received the product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

An aluminum-free deodorant that works… Have you ever considered getting one?

If you haven’t ever my gorgeous reader, it’s time and here is why…

I came across this 😱😱😱 video not so long ago and I couldn’t help myself but share it with you.

I want you to pause everything you are doing and watch this shocking 😱💀 video. I hope you will find the time to watch it.

😡😤😠, right?

I was just seriously frustrated how we don’t know anything about it and how we all doing the things that “work just well” in our everyday life and never pay attention or never question our routines.

Noone wants to have a BO!

Don’t get me wrong I don’t want to smell bad or have a BO, but did I know that I’ve been paying a big price for it? Did I know the trade-off?

Question your routines!

I was just doing my own thing and never ever have I thought it could mess with my health… what if someone’s health has been compromised and they are harming themselves further and further without knowing it?

There is a lesson to be learned here: Question your routines! Make some changes to them and make them more mindful from now on.

In the end of the article, I am giving you the link to the one that REALLY likes!

But you might want to try different ones and it may take you some time to figure out exactly the aluminum-free deodorant that you would like.

So I was on a HUNT…

I wanted to find an aluminum-free deodorant that smells delicious and I wanted it to work!

Furthermore, I wanted it to be:

  • With 24-hour odor protection
  • With no chemical propellants
  • Only natural and/or organic ingredients
  • No animal testing
  • NO: Aluminum, Butane, Parabens, Phthalates or Artificial Fragrances

So I came across those ones, I tried them all and I personally recommend them.

You can buy them from Amazon and Jason Dry Spray Deodorant in Soft Rose smells like luxury perfume. It literally smells like roses and it really works!  I live in Florida and most of the time it’s way too hot so that’s my must have.
