Remington Smooth & Silky Electric Shaver Collection {Review}

Remington logoThere are so many great things that come along with the arrival of spring (sunshine, flowers, farmers' markets, and playing in the sprinkler, just to name a few) but there are also a few aspects that I don't look forward to.

High up on that list is that my days of hiding my legs under long pants are numbered and suddenly my Why bother shaving? No one is going to see them way of thinking has to be put on hold for a while.

I'm not the only one who is lazy about shaving her legs, right? I'd like them to be consistently hair-free, I just don't like the time and hassle that goes into it. Fortunately, this spring Remington has made it easier to be ready for shorts and swimsuits with the introduction of three new women's electric shavers in their Smooth & Silky collection.

women's electric shaversFeaturing dual foils for closer skin contact, a revolutionary hypoallergenic cutting system to combat irritation, and Curve Flex Technology (a contour-following trimmer system with a protective guard that effectively trims long hairs and reduces skin irritation), these new shavers make having a flawless, ready-to-be-seen body an easy possibility.

When the Smooth & Silky Battery-Operated Shaver arrived, I was ready to see what kind of great results it could provide.

Considering my laziness, this added convenience is great for ensuring that I can get my legs smooth and hair-free with less time spent.

Checking out the pivoting blades, I was impressed with the way that this shaver really does seem to glide over my skin no matter if I'm applying a large or small amount of pressure. Instead of spending time with shaving cream and having to worry about pulls, nicks, and cuts, the flexibility of the blades results in fast and more painless work.

For cleaning purposes, it is easy to rinse this shaver with water. However, I do also really like the cleaning brush that Remington included so that I can quickly dust off any tiny stray hairs.

Instead of dreading having to shave, this razor has proven to give good results while being extremely easy to use anytime and anywhere. I'm definitely ready for shorts and swimsuits this season and it might even make it more likely that I keep up with the smoothness when long pants return in the fall!

Retailing for an affordable $14.99 or so, this shaver, as well as the rest of the Remington Smooth & Silky collection, are available for purchase at Walmart, Target or online. You can also stay up-to-date with the latest and greatest from Remington by connecting with them on Facebook and their Shave & Groom Twitter or Haircare Twitter accounts.

(Other than the Smooth & Silky Battery Operated Shaver that I received from Remington to facilitate my review, I was not provided with anything or enticed to do this review in any way. This review is solely my opinion of this company and their products.)

I really need something like this because I am totally lazy about shaving my legs. I'd usually rather wear pants and be hot than bother with the hassle of shaving sometimes. But then I don't get to wear cute summer outfits as much. This would be a great remedy for that!
