The Dos and Don’ts of Shaving Head to Toe

Use a razor and shave the unwanted hair off your body – pretty simple, right? But thousands of women make a lot of shaving mistakes that cause painful irritation or pesky in grown hairs. There is a right way and a wrong way to shave from head to toe. But many do not have a clue.

Summer is here and that means we have to get our legs summer ready. Many of us will be lounging in the sun or we may have a summer holiday planned. Before we get into the Dos and Dont’s of shaving head to toe, we need to remember to pack our shaving kit in our check in luggage when going on holiday. Just like the e cigarettes, razor blades and other sharp shaving equipment need to be checked in. So make sure you do that. Having to leave your valuables is never fun. Especially when they are items you desperately need on the holiday like a VIP Electronic Cigarette or an expensive bottle of perfume. Remember to pack smartly this holiday.

Here are 6 Dos and Don’ts of Shaving Head to Toe


Let’s start with the Dos:


DO exfoliate before you shave

You must never shave your legs without exfoliating first. Dead skin cells can get in the way of having an effective shave. To get the dead skin cells out of the way, exfoliate before you start to shave. Gently scrub the areas where the razor will pass through. Once you’ve exfoliated your skin, give it a rinse and proceed to shave with a razor.

DO soak your limbs in warm water

Warm water helps to open up the pores, soften and hydrate the hairs. That will help you have a closer shave and smoother skin. Make sure that the water is warm and not too hot. If it’s too hot, then your pores will remain closed, thus preventing you from having a closer shave.


DO use shorter strokes while shaving

Have you ever made longer strokes with your razor just because you thought it was faster? The truth is that those longer strokes make you miss hair. That means you have to run your razor several times along your skin. Multiple strokes on the same spot can irritate your skin. So make shorter strokes while shaving to have an efficient shave.


Now that we have the Dos down, let’s have a look at the DON’Ts:


DON’T shave on bare skin

Although it seems faster to run your razor on your bare skin, it’s advisable to go the extra mile by applying some shaving cream on the area you want to shave. This will prevent your skin from feeling sensitive and reduce the chances of having ingrown hair follicles from forming. Shaving cream acts as a protective barrier while you shave. For a cheaper alternative to shaving cream, go for shampoo conditioner.


DON’T shave in the same direction of your hair growth

To have that smooth finish while shaving you must shave in the opposite direction of your hair growth. This gives you a close shave and you get most of the hair off the surface. This is particularly important when you are shaving the bikini area as it helps keeps the nicks away.


DON’T use a razor with a single blade

When you want to shave you need to take into consideration the kind of hair that is growing on your body. Some hairs grow in one direction, like the hairs on your legs and arms. However, the hairs in the underarms are very different from the ones on your legs and arms.

These hairs grow in all directions, thus a razor with a single blade won’t be able to take all the hair in the armpit. However, the most suitable razor for armpit hair is a razor with multiple blades. Multiple blades are able to take all the hairs from your armpit.

Review & Giveaway – VITASTIK Vitamin Diffusers



I have had my eye on VITASTIK Vitamin and Essential Oils Diffusers for a while now. I previously reviewed some VITASTIK Vitamin Vaporisers some months ago. I reviewed the Energize, Grace, Refresh, Calm and Relax flavours, and I must confess, I was blown away by how amazing they were. It is indeed the Holy-Grail of Vaping and Diffusing. So when I had another opportunity to review the new flavours, I grabbed the offer with both hands.

The science behind these VITASTIK Vitamin Diffusers is simple – a Smoke-Free, Nicotine-Free, PG-Free and Diacetyl-Free, Organic Based Product. The first and only product (at the time of writing) that can boast of all these in the market today. And made from something we use everyday, something that makes up over 60% of the human body and over 90% of plants….WATER! It is a healthy way to vape, which is how the brand got the “If you wouldn’t Eat it, then you shouldn’t Vape it !” motto from.





All “USA” made VitaStik’s contain roughly 1 recommended daily intake of Collagen, Vitamin A, B complex, C, D, E & CoQ10. 

The flavours I received are – Energize, Beauty, Relax, Calm, Breathe, Handsome, Amore, Sleep, Tonic and Flora.

Here are my thoughts:


  1. I love the packaging. It is very colourful, pretty and compact. Easy to carry around discreetly if needed.
  2. I like the variety of flavours. There is a flavour for everyone.
  3. I love the fact that this can be described as organic vaping. It sounds a lot healthier than other ecigs in the market.
  4. Most of the flavours names are different. I like different. I also like the name – VITASTIK (Vitamins in a stick).
  5. They smell fab. The names represent exactly how each flavour makes you feel.
  6. You don’t need a lighter, it lights up as soon as you drag on it.
  7. I like the fact that vitamins, therapeutic essential oils and organic flavour waters are the only ingredients in these VITASTIKS.
  8. You don’t have to deal with smoke or bad breath, it is all VAPOUR.

Product Review: VITASTIK Vitamin Vaporisers

Product Review: VITASTIK Vitamin Vaporisers


Happy Sunday Folks. I have a product review to share with you on this beautiful cloudy Sunday, cloudy where I am anyways, and it is a very different type of product. I bring to you VITASTIK, a vitamin vaporizer. This product is a nicotine- and tobacco-free electronic cigarette. perfect for those trying to stop smoking. It comes in 5 different flavours – Energize, Grace, Refresh, Calm and Relax, each contains various vitamins, so instead of inhaling and exhaling harmful tobacco and nicotine, smokers and non-smokers, who enjoy a bit of ‘puff-puff’, can unwind with a VITASTIK indoors or outdoors.

The VITASTIK Relax sounds right up my street. I love the combination of fresh berries, huckleberries and blackcurrant, and these days, I am happy to try anything meant to help me RELAX. My life at the moment is just too busy with running a household and juggling a blog full-time. VITASTIK Calm is also another favourite, the mix of vanilla and green tea, obtained naturally sounds delicious.

I have quite a lot to say about this product but before I get right into it, let’s read what the brand has to say about this new innovative product:

VITASTIK Vitamin Vaporisers Image


VitaStik? What is it? VitaStik® is an innovative, nicotine and tobacco-free e-cigarette. Instead of containing harmful substances, it delivers vapour that is rich in taste, vitamins, natural aroma and organic plant constituents. VitaStik® embodies what you enjoy about smoking. But without the bad aftertaste, the tobacco smoke and the cigarette smell.

No harmful tar or nicotine. Just Vitamin A, B, C and E as well as CoQ10. Furthermore, VitaStik® convinces visually with its modern and clear design. It is far ahead of conventional e-cigarettes and provides natural aroma, water vapour, plant constituents and valuable vitamins, thereby using the same technology that is used in other e-cigarettes. Below you can learn more about Vitastik®.


Here are my thoughts:


  1. I love the bright, colourful packaging, and the chic design. So cute.
  2. I like the cheekiness of the name – VITASTIK. The name explains what the product is about – vitamins in a stick.
  3. I love the fact that there is a variety of flavours and vitamins in each stick.
  4. I love the fact that smokers and non smokers can enjoy puffing these e cigarettes.
  5. I like the thought of vitamins being included in each stick.
  6. It is value for money. One stick goes for £6.50 and you get approximately 500 puffs from each stick. That is a bargain.
  7. No lighter required, it lights up as soon as you drag on it.
  8. No smoke or bad breath, it is all VAPOUR.
  9. You can enjoy a VITASTIK anywhere, on the go, in a coffee shop, or at a party.
  10. All flavours are naturally obtained which help produce the pleasant vapour smell of each flavour.
