The (Mini) Drugstore Find We’re Buying ASAP
File this under Where Have You Been All My Life? Every woman can relate to the feeling of panic when faced with a spur-of-the-moment date night or day at the beach (or…like this morning, when I dared to bare my ankles in cropped pants) and you suddenly realize your lower limbs rival those of Sasquatch’s. Shaving your legs or underarms in the office ladies room is out of the question (unless you’re particularly gutsy and limber), but Gillette has developed a scaled-down solution specifically for these spontaneous, must-be-smooth moments: the Venus Snap. This pinkie-sized razor’s blades are surrounded by a moisture ribbon that’s ready to go after being run under the faucet or dunked in water (as seen in Erin Fetherston’s Fall 2014 concept film)—in other words, no shaving cream required. And its sleek travel compact can easily be slipped into your handbag, gym tote, or top desk drawer. With spring break in full swing, make sure you stock up so you’re prepared for life’s unexpected surprises (like an April day in New York City above 40 degrees).
