Bic Soleil Savvy Razor

Several months ago, I tried a Venus razor. It was amazing! I didn't want to go back to my disposables. But when I went to the store to find refills for the Venus razor, I realized that despite the amazingness of the Venus, it was way too expensive for me to use on a regular basis. And thus, I went back to regular disposables and nicks all over my legs.

Then I was invited to participate in the BzzAgent Bic Soleil Savvy Razor campaign. The Bic Soleil Savvy Razor is a disposable razor with the performance of a premium razor at a lower price, about $7.99. Every Soleil Savvy package contains an easy-grip disposable handle and four replaceable, triple-blade heads. The blade heads feature flexible blade technology and lubricating strips with Vitamin E. Bic says the pivoting heads are made to follow a woman's contours and provide a super-close shave. Once you're done using the four blade heads, you throw away the razor handle and purchase a whole new pack. (Bic Soleil Savvy cartridges are not sold separately.) 

So what did I think after two months and two blades? Well, I know that I can get a bag of several disposable razors for cheaper than $7.99, but the Soleil Savvy is MUCH better than my normal disposables. It's easy to use, and the Vitamin E strip didn't irritate my sensitive skin like other razors' lubricating strips. In the two months I used the Bic Soleil Savvy Razor, I only nicked myself once on my knee! Plus, $7.99 is still cheaper than $20 for premium razor cartridge refills.

The day of the shave (I always shave in the morning) my legs felt super smooth. If I rubbed my legs on the second day, I could feel stubble, but I got the same results with other razors, and the Soleil Savvy doesn't claim to keep your legs smoother longer. It just gives you a comfortable shave without irritation and nicks, which I like!

If you want to try out the Soleil Savvy Razor, I've got $3 off coupons to give away! The first four people to leave a comment will receive two coupons. (Please make sure I have some way of contacting you - email, blog - so I can send you the coupons.) This giveaway closes on August 1 and is only open to residents of the contiguous United States (which means no Hawaii or Alaska).

And before you shave, check out these shaving tips from Bic:
1. Shave at night! Shaving removes dead skin cells and the superficial layer of skin. While this process is healthy, it reduces your skin's defenses for a couple of hours. Shaving at night gives your skin time to recover its strength and suppleness to resist irritation.

2. Shave clean skin! To help prevent infection and bumps, make sure your skin is perfectly clean before you shave. Apply hot water beforehand or shave after showering. 

3. Apply shaving cream or gel! It's gentler on your skin than regular soap and can help lift hair. Lather the cream or gel and leave it on for two minutes prior to shaving.

4. Use a sharp blade! Change your blades regularly, especially if you have sensitive skin. Shaving with a dull blade can result in red spots.
