My Go-To Summer Shave Gel

This post is brought to you in partnership with Skintimate® Shave Gel. As always, all opinions are my own.

When you live in the North, you count the days until you can trade in your wellies and jeans for sandals and sundresses. That is, until you realize your legs haven’t seen the light of day for months. Cue Skintimate®!

No other time is my go-to shave gel more necessary then when I’m prepping my legs in the shower to hang out at one of Minneapolis’ gorgeous chain of lakes with my white lab, Molly. We live nearby and spend every free moment walking, running or sprawling out on a picnic blanket with a wedding to-do list and snack (fruit and nuts for me, organic dog treats for her).

Here in my jean shorts or off-the-shoulder number my legs are on full display. Seeing them is a daily reminder that I need to a) exercise! and b) give them extra love with a moisturizing shave gel like Skintimate®. None of the soap and water business that can be so drying! Skintimate® helps you never miss a spot because you can see exactly where you have shaved and where you haven’t, leaving you feeling confident and ready for the great outdoors. No nicks or razor burn here, and no do-overs required!

I’m a sucker for fruity scents and the Raspberry Rain formula not only smells like fresh raspberries but also contains six moisturizers including Vitamin E and Olive Butter to help replenish skin’s natural moisture for healthy and beautiful skin. Molly approves, too.
