My love affair with the new Venus & Olay Razor!

16 Mar

Short, sweet, simple.

Gillette Venus & Olay

The Product: New! Gillette Venus & Olay Razor

A refillable Venus & Olay with one replacement cartridge – $8.99-$10.99.
Packages of three replacement cartridges – $14.99 – $19.49.

The Razor: 5 Blades, Olay Moisture Bars, SoftGrip Handles, Shower Hook, interchangeable refill cartridges available.

My Thoughts: AMAZING!  Gillette Venus likes to talk about looking and feeling like a goddess, and I never understood the hype.  I have always been a generic, four blade men’s razor sort of girl.  And occasionally I would use shave gel.  But this has changed that forever.  My shave feels ten times closer, smoother, and more streamlined.  It saves me a good ten minutes in the shower, and leaves my terribly dry skin feeling truly Goddess smooth.  My boyfriend agrees too!  I am a convert!

Disclosure: was kind enough to provide this razor to me free of charge as part of their VoxBox program.  All opinions and the excitement over this razor are my own though.  Don’t believe me?  Feel my legs. 😉


Truvía® natural sweetener Product Review

15 Mar

If you know me at all, you know that I love all things sweet.  But I am getting older, getting smarter, and need to start watching what I put into my body.

 Enter Truvia.

If you are not familiar with this handy dandy little delight, Truvia is a 100% natural zero calorie sweetener that is completely delicious!  I have used it in coffee and tea, and find myself using half of a packet, as opposed to my usual two packets of sugar or splenda.

The best part about it – it is gluten free and has no affect on the glycemic index, so it is safe for diabetics.  (After a recent doctor’s visit to discuss, among other things, some stomach issues, I am starting to watch my sugar and gluten intake.)

I am hooked on Truvia, and have already purchased another box, so how could I not share?!

Disclosure: I received this product for free due to my partnership with and their VoxBox program. Opinions are my own. Duh.
