Ok, I’m not sure how this will sound but it’s the truth: When I walked into Townhouse Spa last week for the launch of the new Venus & Olay razor, I’m pretty sure I stopped mid-sentence while talking to my friend, Valeria, when I caught sight of the disarmingly beautiful Chrissy Teigen to comment as follows: “Woah. Her legs are out of control.” Clearly, it’s not hard to see why the brand decided to partner up with the Sports Illustrated model on their revolutionary new razor. But more than that, Teigen is just as much a guy’s dream girl as much as she’s a girl’s girl, I learned from talking to her. She makes you feel instantly comfortable, and not to mention, leaves you laughing uncontrollably — the girl is hilarious!
Me with Chrissy Teigen. I need to really stop taking pictures next to models.
This is the first time Venus & Olay are pairing up to come out with their unique five-blade razor. The ergonomically designed razor contains Olay moisture bars infused with shea butter (and no shave gel needed! Just wet for a light lather). Teigen, who just recently got engaged to longtime beau, singer John Legend, says she’s an ardent “twice-a-day” shaver. She waxed poetic on her love for the new razor:
“I’ve been a Gillette girl for so long,” Teigen said. “Like I used to steal my dad’s razors. Now obviously I’m a Venus & Olay girl, I don’t feel the need to use a men’s razor anymore. With this one, you really do get a smooth, close shave which is really important to me because I can’t afford to have nicks on my legs. I know Photoshop exists but I prefer if they didn’t zoom in and touch up my blood [laughs].” During long photo shoots, Teigen said they would have a six-hour break where “the guys were gone surfing, and I’d be up in my hotel room to shave…again.”
