Ready for Endless Summer with BIC® Soleil® Glow® razors

Living in Los Angeles just a few blocks from the beach means you have to be ready to face the sun year-round.   There are many advantages of living near the beach and having year-round sun.  A few things I enjoy are being able to go to the outdoor pool year-round, swim in the ocean, or go out to dinner in a cocktail dress without having to wear tights or pantyhose.  The trade-off is that looking ready for the sun takes a bit of maintenance.  That means I frequently shave my legs and underarms. That makes it essential to have a gentle and reliable razor, like the BIC® Soleil® Glow® razors.

I’ve been shaving with BIC® Soleil® razors for a while to maintain sun-ready legs.   But the BIC  Soleil Glow razor has several features that make it even more effective and pretty easy to use.  With any razor, you know that not only will you be removing hair, but you’ll also be exfoliating and taking off a little bit of the top layer of skin. The nice thing about the BIC® Soleil® Glow® is it is gentle on your skin.  I’ve been using it to stay ready for my daily swim and there are a few things about the design of this affordable razor that I really appreciate.  The first is the COMFORT SHIELD® head; it pivots easily and glides over the skin lightly, which helps protect you from irritation.

The BIC® Soleil® Glow® razor is easy to grip, which is important if you like to shave your legs in the shower. The blade is flexible so that it seems to adjust to the hair. There are actually 3 flexible blades in each razor head to help get a close shave.

If you’re reading this from outside of a warm weather zone you may be wondering how can you create your own sun using BIC® Soleil® Glow® razors? As someone who grew up in the cold weather zone in the US, I have a few suggestions. You can add a bit of color to your face with bronzer and your legs and arms with self-tanners.


Create your own sun with a special girlfriends night out.

Sometimes a little splash of color can raise your spirits and keep you looking fabulous. And do take the time to enjoy a happy hour or special dinner with your girlfriends to get out and show off your style. Staying in the house when temperatures get colder can lead to cabin fever and worse, even a bit of depression.

Looking your best usually leads to feeling good and BIC® Soleil® Glow® razors are an easy and affordable product to include in your beauty routine. Look for them on sale at Target, Walmart, and even Amazon for less than $6.
