My 8 year old daughter is shaving

Gillette Venus Embrace Razor Alyssa’s 8th birthday was in October, and by Christmas she began shaving. Because my mom made me wait months before she would finally let me shave (I was 12, just a few months from my 13th birthday, and the hair on my legs was embarrassing, especially because both boys and other girls were pointing it out and teasing me about it), I’ve sworn that if my daughter comes to me with a request to shave, whether she’s 13 or 10 I wouldn’t say no. A few months after turning eight was a little younger than I expected, but I said yes, and then demonstrated for her good shaving techniques (use a sharp blade, hold the razor correctly, go against the grain, soak legs in bath or stand in a shower for a few minutes for optimal hair softness, and use shaving cream or gel!).

Alyssa’s razor of choice is the Gillette Venus Embrace (in a lovely bright purple, thanks to Gillette’s Limited Edition Passionista Purple), and she uses Gillette Satin Care Shave Gel (also one of Gillette’s Limited Edition products, Passionista Fruit) in order to get a smooth, close, nick-free shave. I use these products too, and we both love them. The Venus Embrace’s 5-blade design, in conjunction with the ribbon of moisture that surrounds the blade makes the razor possible to shave with on its own, though we both use Satin Care Shave Gel for a better shave and more protection and ease of glide. She hasn’t cut herself once, and since switching to Gillette razors I’ve been enjoying pain-free, irritation-free shaving, too.
