Things are getting a bit brambly, but what if you can’t get an appointment anytime soon at the local wax boutique or Laser Away? What if you’re fed up with those cheap pink women’s razors that nick your skin? I’m with you, and I can tell you this problem is solved…
The folks at Aveline want to assure you that, thanks to their breakthrough ergonomic women’s razor, it is now possible to treat your entire body to near-Brazilian wax smoothness simply by following their Five Tips for a Crazy Good Shave. Aveline is a radical departure from conventional “blade on a stick” razors. They have reimagined the shaving experience to include a thoughtfully-designed razor that gives you more precision and control so you get your smoothest shave ever. It might take a few shaves to get used to the way Aveline works; but don’t worry, it will soon become second nature and you’ll be amazed at the close shave without nicks!

Five Tips for a Crazy Good Shave
- Prep it, baby!
Prepping the skin is the most crucial part of getting a close shave. Dry body hair is not only more uncomfortable to shave, but it can also damage your razor blades, so make sure to moisturize with water AND shaving cream before shaving. If you want to kick it up a notch, try exfoliating your skin before shaving. Removing any dead skin breathes new life into the skin, making it smoother for the razor to glide along. Check out Aveline’s Salt & Sugar Body Scrub for the perfect exfoliant to get your skin razor-ready!
- Don’t drive the wrong way on a one-way street
When shaving, always remember to shave in the direction of hair growth to prevent irritation and ingrown hairs. If you’re looking for a closer shave, you can try shaving against the grain, but move carefully and use shaving cream! Try Aveline’s Shea Butter Shave Cream for an extra layer of protection for a seamless shave.
- Choose your weapon carefully
Unfortunately, when it comes to a high-quality shave, many razors don’t cut it. Usually, the more blades in a cartridge, the more precise the shave will be. Make sure to find a cartridge that is encased in something that will moisturize the skin as you shave most cartridges include a moisturizing strip of aloe to soothe sensitive skin. Avelinecartridges come with six (6) blades AND a moisturizing strip of aloe, vitamin E, and lavender oil, ensuring you get a precise shave without drying out skin.
- One pass is enough
A common mistake many people make when shaving is going over the same areas several times, thinking it will give them a better shave. Not true. Using a razor on just-shaved skin is a major cause of irritation and razor burn. Instead of going over the same areas multiple times, it’s better to use a razor that removes hair in just one swipe.
5. Hold the Lotion
Another common mistake is applying lotion immediately after shaving. Because freshly shaved skin is often incredibly sensitive, its best to wait for approximately 30 minutes before applying anything to it, as it is susceptible to stinging and irritation. I’ve done this before when I shaved and moisturized with a body oil. Instant rash, and it was painful and itchy! However, If you can’t stand the feeling of skin without lotion, try moisturizing with something a little more natural that won’t aggravate the skin such as Aveline’s Botanical Body Lotion.
- Shave by the Moonlight.
To boost your odds of getting a lasting shave, check out The Almanac or The Old Farmers Almanac to find out the best days to cut hair to discourage growth based on the Moon’s sign. Basically, when the moon is waxing, or getting bigger, it’s the time to grow. When the moon wanes, however, and gets smaller until it becomes a New Moon, that’s the time to let go and cut your hair and shave.
