A few weeks ago, I tested Gillette’s Venus Embrace, which is a five-bladed razor. It has a “Protective Ribbon of Moisture” that goes around the razor head, which basically helps make the shave go smoother both during and afterwards. It also has a ShowerPod, which has a suction cup allowing it to attach to your shower wall. The ShowerPod is of decent size, such that it can hold extra cartridges so you can grab them whilst in the shower. No more of those, “Ugh! I forgot to change the blade!” moments.

Last time I wrote about razors, I raved about the Schick Quattro. I know what the first question you have for me is: which one is better?

Well, find out! Continue reading →

JOICO Skin Luxe Golden Shimmer Gradual Self-Tanner feels like a luxury product at a bargain price. For $15.95, this is a subtle self-tanner with a nice, golden sheen/shimmer that accents and highlights both your natural and faux glow (from the self-tanner). It smells of tropical coconuts, and it is even moisturizing on its own accord (probably because of the coconut oil and aloe vera).

The brand is actually a division of Shiseido, in case the connection gives you a better sense of familiarity and not, “What is this brand?” kind of a feeling. I personally prefer subtle self-tanners, more often than not opting for gradual ones, because I’m fairly tan on a regular basis. I also tan up really quickly once the sun starts shining (really, one day is all I need in the sun–despite high SPF–to come back tanned). Gradual self-tanners also work in my favor, because it means I can add a little glow, shimmer, and moisture instantaneously. I have had a thing for lightly shimmered lotions, just because I love the way they make my legs look in skirts. You can find a JOICO near you at www.joico.com.

Do you use self-tanners? Which ones do you like? Do you use them year-round or only in a particular season?
