Bic isn’t just about pens

Bic not just about pensA few weeks ago we published an article on that made a cheeky comment about Bic razors. The eagle-eyed marketing manager spotted the article (we are THRILLED he reads!) and sent us a box of goodies from Bic, including, obviously a bunch of pens (as an ex-teacher I have a real affinity for pens and all manner of stationery) and two razors and some shaving gel.

Irene: The Bic Soleil Lady Gel (with smooth and soothing aloe vera and Vitamin E), R36.99, is pale pink and smells deliciously like apples, I thought (although it doesn’t say anything about an apple fragrance). But okes, seriously, an orangy yellow and pink can? A truly alarming colour combination in my opinion. The Bic Soleil Easy razor, R49.99, is pink and has three blades for a particularly close shave. It is sold with four spare blade inserts, but you can’t buy the blades separately. So it’s half a disposable razor and half a razor that requires you to hunt for blades in supermarkets every few months. The handle is light and smooth and looks ergonomic (by which I mean it looks curvy in all the right places) and it’s the first time EVER that I didn’t knick my knees. Score! Loving the Bic Soleil Easy razor. Smoothest shave ever.

Zoe: Wow, wow, wow! I could not wait to come to work so I could write all about my shaving experience with the new Bic Soleil Easy razor. And what a difference shaving gel makes. I have always been a soap and water girl until I got to try out the Bic Soleil Lady Gel shaving gel. So, as you may have gathered, I had a very pleasant experience. The gel dispensed the perfect amount to coat my legs and it smelt delicious. The pretty pink razor glided over my skin leaving my legs feeling silky smooth. Let’s just say I can’t wait to shave my legs again. Really!

    For me hair removal creams are still the best, I get few Ingrowns and my legs stay wonderfully smooth for 6 to 8 weeks. I am considering trying out the epilator

    Will try their stuff, its reasonable priced, the shving gels and razors are so expensive these days. I’ve seen the BIC range on the shelves but I was scared to try it. Thanks for the assurance that they are good.
