The weather is finally warming up here in NYC , and slowly I've been able to peel away at my many layers of clothing. Usually , I have been one to shave year round but with the Cruel Winter we just had here in the Northeast that just was not happening. Since I will be soon saying so long to my opaque tights and wearing more skin baring items, I have to shed my layer of hair on my legs that has been keeping me warm. I'm not one for waxing my legs ( I've never tried my legs , always felt like it would be too much ) , but I love the quick option of shaving. Believe it or not I love the disposable options, 1- they're affordable 2- they get the job done 3- they honestly perform better than their high end counterparts. Honestly , I've tried a lot and disposable will always be a winner with me ( for reference my hair is dark and and grows in long ) . Cost effective and gets the job done , a Win-Win situation.

Here are a few of my favorite options : BIC Simply Soleil Click (1/SRP $6.99) - This razor comes with six 3-blade cartridges ( it's like 6 razors for the price of one). I love this razor for traveling too.
Then we have the BIC Soleil Glow Razor (3/SRP $7.49) - perfect for the sensitive types , it comes with a comfort shield ( I have to admit I sometimes remove this to "get deep down and dirty" with my shaving. ) . Lastly , for the girls who may be a bit hairier than most ( my sisters in the struggle) the New BIC Flex 5 for Men (2/SRP $6.79) - yes its for Men , but we can use it too. This razor has 5 flexible blades which provide a REALLY close shave, and some of us ladies need the extra assistance. I personally would start out my Spring / Summer routine with the Flex 5 , since I have excess hair to remove then proceed throughout the Spring and Summer with the Simply Soleil Click and Soleil Glow,
*** A insider tip from Celebrity Hair and Makeup Artist Alex La Marsh ***
I was lucky to attend a Men's Grooming class / demo during IMATS NY taught by Alex La Marsh, and one valuable lesson I learned is that I need to keep disposable Men's razors ( disclaimer - she did not list / name any particular brand or style just disposable razor) in my professional Makeup Kit for Male Clients / Models. Some times the shoot will call for Men to be clean shaven , and you need to be prepared in case he may need to quickly shave his face on set. So being that these razors are very effective as well as inexpensive, I will be stocking up on them for work as well.
