No More Sasquatch Vacations! (Unless That's Your Thing)

No More Sasquatch Vacations! (Unless That's Your Thing)

Say what you will about Millennials, but we've made expectations about smoothly shaved legs practically extinct, at least for our generation. Some 20 or 30 something somewhere is reading this and is just horrified, I'm sure. They are diligent about body hair removal! Well to you, dear reader, I say

No one is expecting you to shave those cute gams! Who even has the time?! I think I was in high school when I started regularly hearing, "Oh, I haven't shaved my legs in forever. It's the winter." And we all nodded in solidarity and understanding. Now I hear that year round! I have blonde body hair, so while I tend toward shaving my legs and pits (and, of course, any and every woman is free to do with her own body as she pleases), I can put it off for a long time before I start to feel a bit overly hairy for my taste. (If I can't see it, it's easier to pretend it's not there at all.)

This is all to say, in my everyday life I'm very lazy about shaving, and when I go on a trip, that laziness compounds almost immediately. Be it two days or ten, I tend to live in delusion and tackle hair removal when I get home. But occasionally I'd be on vacation and I'd get a bit self conscious and want to groom ever so slightly, and then I'd have to deal with razors and packing them and worrying about having a razor just floating around in my cosmetics case and what if I cut myself and SEE WHAT I MEAN? WHAT A MESS. 

This is where the Venus Snap razor comes in to save the day. It's the Venus razor you know and love, but in an itsy-bitsy size AND it comes in its own little case. The whole package, case included, fits in your palm. AND, the razor refills with regular old Venus razors, so you don't need to buy anything extra or make sure you've made a special purchase before your trip (assuming you use Venus razors regularly and have a stash in your cupboard, as I do.) I just buy a 4 or 8 pack of the regular old Venus razors (I'm cheap) and make sure the one in my Venus Snap is relatively fresh before a trip. If not, I grab a new razor out of my stash and we're ready to go! Because this sharp little sucker has its own case, you don't have to worry about a sharp razor being in your travel case potentially cutting up your stuff or your fingers when you reach in to grab something. AND the case has vents to drain any water that may end up in there, and allow your razor to dry out effectively.
