At least for now, I have to concede to the "softening" of my muscles, because I can't really challenge myself like I was before surgery. It's disheartening, I won't lie. I'm cringing when I look in mirrors and pull up my shorts. Let me just say "firm" is not the adjective I would use to describe my legs at this point.
On a recent grocery excursion, I had to pick up a new can of shaving gel. As I perused the self grooming aisle, I stumbled upon Skintimate Cream Shave. "Hmm," I wondered aloud. Something I haven't tried, and many of you know that I am a sucker for trying new things, especially beauty products. Yes, I am the advertiser's dream come true. I am the customer who reads the heady promises and thinks "I have to try this!"
I bought the Cream Shave, and oddly..my shaving gel that was almost empty seemed to breed within the can and never run out, as if it knew how anxious I was to try the new product sitting on the cabinet. Finally, on a great Monday morning, my shaving gel could breed no more and I tried the Cream Shave.
The result of this new product (paired with my Men's Gillette Fusion Razor) was an incredibly soft, smooth shave!!!! When I say this, I am not just talking about a decent shave, this was one of those "I can't keep my hands off my own legs" shave! Seriously, I was flipping out while I rinsed them, lathered on a little unnecessary lotion, and dressed. I wanted to just touch them all day, and the next!
So while my legs might not be in tip top shape, I have found something that, for now, can boost my spirits about my gams.
