Summer time prep: Legs Edition

Okay ladies the hibernation period is over!
I do have a question for you.. Do you wax or shave?

I know that there are other methods to remove hair but the two most popular ones are waxing or shaving. Both of them have their pros and cons.

 If I'm crunched on time I would definitely go with shaving but if I'm going 
somewhere for prolonged time like a beach vacation- I would definitely wax.

Here two new products that are coming out that you might find of interest:
Gillette Venus Snap with Embrace Razor $15.99 CAN
Venus Embrace's five curve-hugging blades help you shave close and a water-activated ribbon of moisture provides for a smooth glide.
I love how compact it is! It can fit in your make up bag or travel case. I should also add I love the fact that it comes in its own protective case. I once carelessly packed a razor in my suitcase and it broke when I got to my destination. An item like this is very handy and effective. Plus all Venus cartridges fit all Venus razor handles.
Nair Candy Apple Sugar Wax $16.99 CAN

Developed by #1 leading brand in sugar wax, this moisturizing and 99% naturally sourced formula with apple & sugar cane extract leaves your skin feeling smooth for results that last up to 4 weeks. 

This wax is a microwavable wax that kinda smells like candy apple. Definitely a much better scent than regular waxes. It also comes with a stick for application and strips for removal. I think one of my favourite things about this wax is that it's rinsable. If you apply the wax and some for some reason you freak out and you decide I can't do it.. take some water and wash it off.

Would you be interested in trying any these products?

Looking for readers to review the new Skintimate® Mandarin Burst Shave Gel + $100 Visa Gift Card

Have you heard? 
The new Skintimate® Signature Scents® Mandarin Burst shave gel has arrived in Canada. Although some people see Winter as a time to "let loose"- this is the best time to REALLY test out this new shave gel.
Skintimate® Signature Scents® is back with a new flavour to add to its already exciting shave gel lineup. Featuring the refreshing citrusy fragrance of mandarin oranges, lemons and limes, Skintimate® Mandarin Burst Moisturizing Shave Gel provides a combination of aromatic scent and moisturizing properties perfect for warming and smoothing that rough ‘winter skin’.
Trust me when I say you will love this. The foam is very manageable. You don't have to worry about making a mess.

My favourite part?
They way how it dispenses! It comes out as a gel. Once you rub your hands together it forms a really nice thick lather. Not the type that easily washes off easily in the shower. It also contains six moisturizers including antioxidant Vitamin E and Olive Butter. The type of oils that winter skin really needs. I'm impressed. Plus I love citrus scent- it totally reminds me of summer.

Canadians! Are you interested in trying it out for yourself?
I'm looking for 10 Spiced Beauty readers to review the product with me. Once you submit you review, you're eligible to win a $100 visa gift card.

Veet Easy Wax Electrical Roll on Kit

Veet has come out with an awesome new product that will make your life much easier. Possibly eliminating your time at the spa... which may result in you having more money for the finer things like sandals and accessories.

Veet Easy Wax Electrical Roll on Kit.
Claims: Convenient & easy.
My kit was specially designed for the arms & legs. 
I thought the set up was easy and clean. My only issue was the warm up time. The set up time on the information sheet stated 20 minutes. I had to wait double the time for the wax to become fully "melted' the first time.
If you are in a rush remember the setup time will vary. 
It could be a 10 minutes or more for warm up.

Once I got it going, It was smooth sailing. The wax was a great constancy.. not too stick or thin. The best part was the fact that it didn't hurt. When you are at home you can do everything at your own pace. In other words you do want you can depending on your pain tolerance.
I have a very LOW pain tolerance so that is a big pro.

Overall I would recommend this product to any lady who is new to at home waxing.
If you have patience for the warm up, I promise the wait is worth it.

Would you try out this product?
