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?
