Mom Tips for Summer Legs on the Go
I am a member of the #Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser.
As a busy wife and mother, I cherish the winter months because I don’t have to shave every few days. Thanks to pants no one notices that the hair has grown out and I haven’t gotten around shaving it away. Luckily my husband also doesn’t mind the extra layers or at least he hasn’t complained out loud. Unfortunately, Summer is here and that means that I can’t hide in my pants forever so I have to tackle my legs to make them summer ready. The key to having legs that are ready for summer is moisture, a quality razor, and plenty of sun protection. As a mom my time and money are limited. That is why I shop for all my shaving, moisturizing and beauty products at Walmart and Walmart.com.
So as a mom I never really have Summer Legs at all times because lets be honest who ever gets time alone in the shower long enough to shave. So when I get the invitation to head out to spend some time in the water and sand, I have to think fast. I don’t like to dry shave so as I head out my back door to the sandy oasis that awaits, I grab my “To Go” Shaving Kit along with all our summer gear. This way while my children are playing in the sand, I can get those Summer Legs I need.
What is in a “To Go” Shaving Kit – Beach Bucket (to fill up with warm water), Schick Extreme 3 Hawaiian Tropic Razor, Skintimate Mandarin Burst Shave Gel, and Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Lotion Sunscreen.
I prepare my legs by lathering with the Skintimate Shave Gel so that I don’t end up with dreaded razor burn. Next, I shave with the Schick Extreme 3 Razor. This is a disposable and in my shower is a Schick razor also because I find that I get the best shave with a Schick razor. I use the warm water in the bucket to rinse my razor in between swipes. If it gets murky, I bribe one of the kids to dump it and bring me back clean water. (Yes, I just admitted to bribing my kids but sometimes a mom has to do what a mom has to do.) Now that I have taken the time to to treat my legs so carefully it is important that I protect them from the sun’s harmful rays by covering them with sunscreen. The Sheer Touch Lotion by Hawaiian Tropic leaves skin with a radiant glow and leaves them silky smooth. It is important to remember as you are sitting to poolside to reapply every 2 hours if you are not swimming but every 80 minutes if you are swimming or sweating. For me, this is about 4 snack requests, 3 potty breaks, 5 attempts at reading a book, 2 child arguments and one dog jumping in the pool.
