Last Minute Shave!

Shave Legs


This is a pretty little time saver I use when I forget to shave my legs the night before: That day arrives when there’s no time to jump in the shower and shave my legs. Most often that day includes a pedicure appointment and there’s no way I’m showing up with stubble, you know what I mean?

The Last Minute Shave is easy!  You only need three ingredients and a good razor.

Sweet Almond Oil

I keep a bottle of Sweet Almond Oil in the house because it’s versatile as a carrier oil and so very light and nice on skin.  Sweet Almond Oil is rich in fatty acids, which are great for your skin as they will soothe and softens.  The oil also contains high levels of unsaturated triglycerides that moisturize leaving the skin feeling soft. No wonder Jackie O swore by it as a moisturizer!  Sweet Almond Oil absorbs easily without greasy after-feel and it contains a high concentration of vitamin E.  It’s both an emollient and a humectant because it softens skin, and then prevents moisture loss.

Geranium and Lavender Essential Oil

One drop of each essential oil adds the healing and antibacterial properties of pure essential oils to the moisturizing benefits of Sweet Almond Oil, it’s a beautiful pairing!

    Why would you shave in the shower and waste all that water? You could do your “last minute shave”
    with water in the sink and shave with your leg on the tub ledge. Just saying…..

      i use olive iol, but it kinda overpowers the EO, smell-wise, of you can use sunflower oil, which is my favorite!

    Where is the best place to look for Sweet Almond Oil? Cooking section at grocery store? Health Food Store? This is a great tip I could really put to good use!

    Thank you!

      You will probably have to find it in a health food store or on I’ve never seen it in my grocery stores.
