Moms Love Shaving their Legs, Right?

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Remington, to share hair removal tips. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and as a thank you for participating….

What mom doesn’t love shaving her legs, right? When you’re enjoying a nice, quiet, relaxing bubble bath at the end of a long day – a day that consists of things like shopping, lunch with girlfriends, and maybe a stop at the spa for a massage and pedicure – and you pull out your favorite plastic drugstore razor, and soothingly swipe it up and down your legs, effortlessly removing those unwanted hairs. Those plastic razors always leave you with legs that are smooth, silky, stubble-free and ready for summer swimsuit season every time. We all love it.

Baaaahahahahahaha.

Just kidding. For most moms, the only bubble bath they are a part of is the one they give to their toddler after they’ve gotten themselves into some type of crazy-outlandish mess. Like, say… a little time spent playing in a sandbox they discover while you’re over to a friend’s house for dinner. A sandbox that’s actually a kitty litter box. After playing in the toilet. So the kitty litter gets wet and sticks in their hair and in between their toes. {Yes, this happened recently. Thankfully they are nice friends, lol.} And your day – unless you’re one of those Real Housewives types – probably has less spa day, and more work day. Whether that work is managing employees, or managing to run 327 errands in a day, it’s work. And plastic razors? I’m pretty sure we all have the same issues with those – sure, they’re a cheap way to get rid of hair. But you get what you pay for. And what you get is razor burn and rashes, stubble left behind, and legs that are way less than smooth. So what’s a busy mom to do?

Smart Solution time – Meet the Remington i-LIGHT Pro

Yes ladies – I have found a solution that looks super promising at helping us all skip shaving. It’s called the i-LIGHT Pro, from Remington. I just finished my first session with it – and will give you a full update in 6 weeks on how it works. The video gives you a great idea of how it works, but here are a few key points:

  • It works best if you have lighter skin and darker hair. It won’t work on white hair, and is less effective on blonde or red hair. 
  • You don’t want to use it on areas where you have tattoos, or if you have super dark skin.
  • You use it 3 times, every 2 weeks. You may not notice any change at first, but by the 6 week mark the hair should be gone. Then, you will stay hair-free in all treated areas for 6 months!

Why is this a smart solution for busy moms? Well – if it really and truly works as good as it clams it does, it would be amazing would it be to be able to skip shaving for SIX MONTHS? Because if your life is anything like mine – you have to sneak into the bathroom to get a shower, and usually have 5 minutes or less before your minions are banging on the door. There are many days I have to choose between washing my hair and shaving, due to the strongly-worded toddler demands being issued from outside the bathroom door. And as a busy mom, I really don’t have the time or money to devote to things like waxing or professional laser hair removal. This could be an amazing solution!

Stay tuned – and learn more

I’ll be sharing an update after using this for awhile… {And watch for some updates on Instagram of how the process works.} Until then, learn more about simple hair removal with the i-LIGHT Pro on their website. And let me know – what do you do for summer hair removal? Are you just a try to sneak in a shave gal like me, or do you have a different process or gadget you find helpful?
