Gillette Venus Waterless Disposable Razor

Bath and Body:
Gillette Venus Waterless Disposable Razor 
My favorite thing about shopping at the drugstore is that you can always find small things that you really need in the travel size section. Travel size products are perfect for when you're on the go and you need something that is going to fit in your purse or travel bag. I recently purchased the new Gillette Venus Waterless Disposable Razor a mini size razor that is waterless so you can shave anywhere, anytime without being in the shower. This a single disposable razor with a lubricating soft gel with aloe is stored inside the razor handle. It also includes a cleaning pad to clean the shaved area. Retail Price: $4.99

Available at: www.walgreens.com 




Review: 
This is great when I shave in the shower it takes time which I don't mind when I have the time but, this mini disposable is perfect for those days where you have to go and you don't have time. This is an easy way to clean your legs up without a mess, you shave and whatever gel is left over you just massage onto your legs. I really like this razor plus it's gentle on the skin, I do like to apply and argan oil or moisturizer when I finish shaving.

PiperWai Natural Deodorant

Bath and Body:
PiperWai Natural Deodorant 
A few months ago I switched over to natural deodorant and it has changed my life, I did do my research to find the top natural deodorants that actually work. I recently did a review on the Schmidt's natural deodorant which is my favorite but, now I can add another favorite to my list. PiperWai Natural Deodorant is aluminum-free and formulated with activated charcoal to absorb wetness and fight odor. Organic Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E soothe the most sensitive skin. This is a stain-free formula so it will not show up on your clothes. 100% vegan, cruelty-free and formulated without synthetic fragrance. PiperWai is made with a blend of 11 essential oils: bergamot, clove leaf, lavender, mandarin, rosemary, thyme, tea tree, peppermint, lemongrass, eucalyptus & clary sage. Retail Price: $11.99

Available at: www.piperwai.com & www.gnc.com


Review:
Let me start by saying that this goes on the skin super smooth and it really works. This is an amazing natural deodorant, my only problem is I think it should come with an applicator to apply the product. As far as the scent it carries a strong eucalyptus smell but it does simmer down after a while. If you're looking for a natural deodorant that works I highly recommend Piperwai & Schmidt's.
