It’s official: I am one of model Chrissy Teigen’s bridemaids…well, sort of! I was invited to attend the Gillette Venus & Olay sponsored bridal shower for their beautiful, funny and charismatic spokesperson, model Chrissy Teigen.
Her soon-to-be nuptials to musician John Legend has her all aflutter with skincare concerns, including keeping her legs silky smooth and moisturized!
Gillette Venus & Olay have come together once again to introduces their latest razor in a new scent: Sugarberry — a sweet, sugary berry scent. No separate shaving cream is required!
This new scent not only adds some summery aroma to your shaving time, but increases visual shine by up to 30%, and exfoliates for surface skin renewal; the Olay Moisture Bars lock-in moisture reducing surface dryness.
Chrissy, the bride-to-be
The bridal shower was decorated with pink and white flowers; Chrissy got all girly and wore some fun bridal attire, and a lovely bubble bath replica cake with cupcakes (and adorable sugar Venus Razors adorning the tops) took center stage at the event.
Chrissy and Dr. Levine talking about skincare
Chrissy Teigen talked about some pre-wedding details, while her dermatologist of two years, Dr. Jody A. Levine, MD, answered some skin savvy questions.
How To Prevent Razor Burn/Ingrown Hairs
What causes ingrown hairs?
“One of the key causes of ingrown hairs is when you don’t use a sharp enough razor. The Gillette Venus & Olay razor has five blades that are very close together — you’re going to get a close shave in addition to exfoliating your skin.
“Dead skin is what leads to ingrown hairs. Dead skin covers the hair follicle and the hairs grow under the skin. So, if you can exfoliate and shave closely, you’ll minimize your chances of ingrown hairs.”
Is it okay to shave every day?
“If you use a razor like the Gillette Venus & Olay with built-in moisture, you can shave every day. The problem is when your skin is dry and you’re rubbing the razor over dry skin, which causes irritation.
How long can you go without changing your razor head?
“Change your razor head after 10 shaves. That is just an average number. When you can’t smoothly glide the razor over your skin, and see some bumps and irritation, then it is time to change.”
What ingredients are found in the Gillette Venus & Olay razor heads?
“The strips are made from glycerin and petrolatum, which are Olay ingredient used in many Olay product. Now they are putting those ingredients on the razor with the pivoting head that makes it so special.”

My goodies! Thank you!
You know that a supermodel like Chrissy Teigen has some favorite products of her own, but, I wanted to know if John steals any of her products when she’s not looking — one being her SK-II Facial Treatment Cleanser ($70.00)…
“He steals my products all the time,” exclaimed Chrissy. “He’ll use whatever I have laying around, basically.
My pet peeve with him is that he’ll just leave containers open, like my Natura Bisse Diamond Extreme Cream ($335.00), which is the best face cream out there. It’s amazing!”
