The Lipstick League is clearly thinking about more skin-revealing weather. You know, the stuff we hope will follow this insane "Sprinter" snowed-in business. Let's talk body-hair removal: Are you a razor person, or do you prefer another method such as wax, depilatory cream or a device? Or maybe you'd rather go au naturale?
Here's another thing I've whinged about more than once over the years: I did not inherit my Chinese Mum's smooth, hair-free arms and legs. I took after the more hirsute side of the family (lookin' at you, Dad!). Plus my hair is very dark and my skin is fair... I can't handle the regrowth required to wax, etc.
Thus I'm a razor girl, and my go-to is the Gilette Venus Embrace, the best on the market as far as I'm concerned. I need those five, precisely placed blades plus emollient strip for the smoothest finish, and because I get 5 o'clock shadow (9 o'clock with the Venus Embrace), I need them daily. *sigh*
