Hair Removal Made Easy

When it comes to my beauty routine, one of the things that I overlook the most, is the hair on my body. I can talk endlessly about all the hair on my head (eyelashes and eyebrows included) but I rarely talk about my body hair. I’ve been shaving for as long as I can remember, so at this point, the physical act of shaving is like second nature to me. I know a lot of people may choose not to shave and I’m not against that by any means, but I personally feel the most comfortable when I’m sans hair. Remember, it’s your body- so you do you! 

With my constant crazy schedule, it’s not unlike me to completely forget to shave or wax. I just don’t have the time! The other weekend I was sitting at the beach with Allen and Chloe and I looked down at my legs and realized I hadn’t shaved in months! With that said, I am so excited to have partnered with Gillette Venus to share with you my thoughts on an innovative beauty gadget with milestone technology (you know how much of a sucker I am for beauty tools that actually work)!


When Braun reached out for me to try the new gadget, I was super interested. Basically, this little guy helps with hair removal (anywhere below your cheeks) with long lasting results. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! I’ve been testing it for the past few weeks in the office and I can honestly say it’s been amazing! It’s so quick and convenient- I love that I can use it after normal work hours while I wait for traffic to die down before heading back home (for those of you that dont know this, I live about an hour and a half away from the office). Catching up on emails and removing unwanted hairs at once? Dream come true!

Here’s the breakdown on this new beauty tool:

The Venus Silk-expert powered by Braun uses IPL, which is Intense Pulsed Light, to reduce hair growth. The light targets the melanin in your hair follicles to stop the hair at its root (literally). The more you use it, your hair will continually get weaker, finer, lighter and grow back slower. The device is especially easy to use because it includes a skin tone sensor, and there’s no manual color matching charts. Depending on your skin tone and the color of your hair, the light it emits will automatically be adjusted to give the best treatment and results as possible. It also has different light modes depending on where you’re using it: normal, gentle and extra gentle. 

It might seem overwhelming, but by putting in the time now, shaving/waxing will be so much easier come this summer! It’s totally worth it. The Venus Silk-expert powered by Braun is also great for facial peach fuzz (we’ve all got it, and I’ll be the first to admit it! lol)! 



  • Sounds like a great product to use!

    Great method, thanks for sharing.

  • Marie says:

    Great article! Finally somebody dares to talk about hair removal! It seems to be , that women´s body hair became a huge taboo over the last few years! ❤❤❤

  • Kay Nguyen says:

    I have never used any hair remover but I will give this a try! Thanks for sharing <3

  • Stella says:

    Gillette always has the best products for depilation! I would love to try this if I weren’t done with it by laser 🙂 But it’s also great for a gift idea! And the design is so sleek!
    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Hahaha just like you, I conveniently “forget” to shave during the colder months 🙁 I usually epilate, and although I really like it, I’m so glad you introduced and recommended this new method of hair removal!

    XO, Elizabeth

    I have to try this!! I usually shave too but am always annoyed at how often I have to do it. I’ve always wanted to try laser hair removal but with this it seems like I can do that at home. Thanks for sharing!

    xo, Jo

    This is interesting – I use a venus razor at home.
    I wonder if they have these in Australia?

  • Savannah says:

    I’ve been dying to try one of these, but I am so scared that it’s painful/doesn’t work for me and I just end up wasting all that money and effort on yet another hair removal tool that doesn’t work for me… x

  • sasa says:

    Wow gotta have to try it out:P

  • Nicolette says:

    It would be interesting to see a comparison between this and the classic Tria one. The Venus one definitely looks easier to use and is much more pleasing to the eye!

  • Keri says:

    Legs for days!
    And oh wow, this looks amazing. I am totally into anything that means I don’t have to shave!

    Now this is a trend I can get behind. You can literally watch TV and “shave” at the same time. Your practically making your downtime more productive!
