Besides, even if beach season was over, is that any excuse to stop removing unsightly body hair? Of course not! I teamed up with Phillips and Sarna to review some of their beach bag essentials and even give away one of the items in the bag to you.
So inside my very chic J Crew tote were the two most important items you will need to remove hair: Sarna Original anti-itch lotions, and a Philips Satin Perfect Epilator.
The Philips Satin Perfect Epilator removed hair by pulling at the root without any irritation or pulling of the skin. Hair is gone for weeks, unlike shaving (that hair comes back in like 4 days flat for me). I was a tad apprehensive about using the epilator because I have not used one in a very long time. It almost feels like a rapid plucking of the skin, so yeah it does sting just a little bit but beauty is pain right? I used it on my armpits, legs and arms. After about 30 minutes all hair was successfully removed (no stray hairs yay!). I’m on week three and no hair has grown back. The biggest complaint I have about the epilator is the sound. It’s very loud. The Philips Satin Perfect Epilator is rechargeable, portable, and easy to store. The Satin Perfect retails for $99.99.
Sarna lotion is like nothing I’ve ever used before. I live in mosquito ground zero, West Nile Capital of the world and yes, we all get bit. The mosquitos here are so wild, repellant does not keep them all at bay. So you are going to be bitten. To be honest, I scratch. When I am tired of scratching, I normally slap a little Calamine lotion on, but I hate the way it smells. Thank God for Sarna! This lotion is steroid free and soothes the itch associated with bug bites and sunburn. You get instant relief and smooth skin. I was a little itchy after epilating, and this did the trick. Sarna retails for $13.99 a bottle.
So after epilating and lotioning down real good, it’s time to go to the beach! Enter to win the Philips SatinPerfect Epilator. Giveaway starts right now and ends August 23, 2013. US Only.
