Remember Your First Shave? Here’s How to Get That Silky Smooth Feeling Again.

It was the year 2000 and my Mom finally gave me the okay to shave the embarrassing stubble my 12-year-old legs had accumulated. With a cheap single-blade drugstore razor and a bar of soap, my freshly shaven legs, though patchy, felt like a million bucks. Feeling suddenly like a woman, I couldn’t wait to repeat this new and fun task.

Fast forward a few years, and shaving became a chore. Not only was it something I came to despise, but I became sloppy, and because I didn’t replace my razor frequently enough, ended up cutting a 5-inch gash into my shin. Talk about a nightmare!

It wasn’t until I discovered the Flamingo razor, that I rekindled my excitement over shaving.

The closest shave ever without fear of nicks or cuts (even behind your knees)

After my horrific cut, I became very cautious when shaving. I started skipping behind my knees and those hard-to-reach places in fear of nicking or cutting myself again. I tried brand after brand only to find the razors themselves only good for specific areas instead of the entire leg. Extra gel pads proved to cut more than protect, and I was about done.

After trying multiple brands of razors and conducting a bit of research, I came across the Flamingo brand, and happily, it was just what I've been searching for. The Flamingo razors have 5 ultra thin and sharp blades balanced on a flexible head for the ultimate shave. Not only does it remove any worry of nicking myself, but it allows me to reach behind my knees, shins, and ankle with no fear of reliving those past shaving transgressions.

No pink tax here, just unbeatable value

At an extremely competitive price point, (seriously only $7 gets you the Starter Shave set,) Flamingo gives you smooth, soft skin without the dreaded “pink tax”. The Starter set comes with the Flamingo handle in the color of your choice, two blades, a shower holder, and shave gel. Us ladies no longer need to shop in the men’s razor section to get our hands on a quality razor that comes in an array of pretty colors AND can actually be customized through handle engraving! These qualities alone made it a no-brainer for me to make the switch. Flamingo's Foaming Shave Gel also adds an extra cushion between your skin and the blade. When paired together, your legs will beg to be shown off all year round.

Never shave with a dull blade again

While the Flamingo brand can also be purchased in stores for those who haven’t converted to the world of online shopping, a huge convenience factor for me was the fact that Flamingo offers auto-ship. Never having to worry about shaving with a dull razor again, I was able to choose just how often the blade refills ship based on how often I shave, giving me one less thing to think about.

All’s Well That Ends Well

With the help of Flamingo, gone are the days of dreading to shave. With sleek and smooth legs, I now feel more confident wearing shorts and dresses all year round and feel more comfortable in my skin creating a very happily ever after.
