I was cruising around my ‘hood the other day when I saw the above poster in front of a salon. It conveys how I’ve felt practically *every day* since puberty. Seriously, where does all the hair come from??? It’s like I’m a Play-Doh Mop Top Hair shop.
The only good thing about being a hairy beast is that it always gives me a valid excuse to try new hair removal accoutrements.
One such miracle of hair removal is Neutrogena Rainbath Shower & Shave ($7.50) body wash. It’s a combination body wash and shave liquid with aloe vera to soften and moisturize skin.
I’m in love with the fragrance. The bottle claims it’s “marine scented,” but I think it smells like towels, fresh from the dryer, mixed with lemons and a dash of soap — refreshing and clean, and it totally wakes me up when I use it in the morning.
As a shave gel it works great. It’s not as thick or rich as gels like Gillette Satin Care Alluring Avocado; consequently, it doesn’t clog my beloved Venus Embrace razor, and with it I get really close shaves.
No nicks, razor burn or bumps, either, after I’m done hacking off my fur — nothing but smooth, soft skin that feels moisturized and smells fresh.
And it’s totally fab as a shower gel, too, rinsing quickly and never leaving a thick or heavy film.

At $7.50, it’s a bit pricey for a drugstore shower gel, but you get a reasonable amount of product for the price. It works out to less than $1 per liquid ounce. Not bad at all. Plus, it multi-tasks and smells great. Keep an eye out for it on your next trip to Rite Aid.
Yea! We made it to Friday! 🙂 Today is my official day off from my day job at the literary agency. I was tempted to sleep the day away, but I told myself I had to get something productive done no matter what.
Doesn’t it make you feel all fierce and positive?
Hope you’re having a great day so far. Got any plans for the weekend?
