My BFF Cindy is a practical girl, and lawd she knows me well. Fed up with me arriving late to our homegirl dates, she gave me an ultimatem after the last time, threatening to take away my lipgloss if I ever did it again.
Got. My. Attention.
With horror like that hanging over my head, I was extra careful to set aside enough time to get ready last Friday before our ballet date.
I was ahead of schedule when I finished my hair and makeup, so I pulled up Google Images on my computer to take a really quick break.
“S h i r t l e s s C h a n n i n g T a t u m” [ENTER]
When I bolted back to consciousness 15 minutes later, I was, as usual, running late. “No problem,” I told myself in a soothing voice. “Lots of time.” And then I glanced down at my legs and noticed — WHOA! — a thicket of fur on my shins (enough to make a full-length coat).
It has been said that Asian women don’t have a lot of body hair. Well, tonight on MythBusters: my furry legs. 🙂
Thank ye beauty gods for EOS Shave Cream ($3.49)! It delivered one of my fastest shaves ever.
I’ve actually used the same cream in a different scent before. Last summer, I hacked away my body hair with the Pomegranate Raspberry version. I loved how soft it left my legs, how quick it made my shaves and how it never gave me bumps, but I couldn’t stand the scent (sickly sweet). Still, I liked how well it worked enough to finish the bottle.
But then I moved on to other things, discouraged by the scent, and forgot about EOS Shave Cream…until I tried Vanilla Bliss! It’s just as creamy and moisturizing as the Raspberry one, and also works with or without water. It’s one of six flavors in the EOS Shave Cream line.
The scent? Like vanilla ice cream and warm apple pie… And SO much better than the one in Pomegranate Raspberry (at least to me). It’s a softer scent and not at all overwhelmingly sweet.
