So I get products to review/tryout from time to time. This time I was sent the Bic Soeil Glow razors. In the land of razors, I'm picky. This is because I started getting good razors free when I was doing the "extreme" couponing phase of my life. Since I've given up the "extreme" and what not, my good razors are gone. I'm talking about the $10 for razor, not the 10 razors for $1. This is a good middle of the road razor. It's WAY better than the cheap 10/$1, sadly, I can't tell you it's better than the $10 razors. The main reason it falls just short is that there is no moisturizing strip. So, how's the shave? you ask. I shaved Monday morning before I went into sub teach. Today is Thursday and I have some stubble, but not enough to complain about. It's a great razor for its price! The pivoting head helps the glide over legs and under arms. I'd buy them again, no questions asked!

From BzzAgent:
Let’s raise our razors to scoring a flawlessly smooth shave for less. Each BIC® Soleil® Glowdisposable shaver is more than just the sum of its parts. But hey — those parts are pretty impressive, too:
  • The COMFORT SHIELD head evenly distributes pressure, effortlessly glides and helps protect your skin from irritation
  • Three flexible blades individually adjust to all your curves for a flawlessly smooth shave
  • lubricating strip infused with Vitamin E and Aloe pampers and soothes your skin
  • The pivoting head easily follows the contours of your body
  • Each pack includes three beautiful, translucent handles: pastel pink, purple and green
  • The rubber grip delivers added comfort and control

So My Knee Hates Me

I have been involved with roller derby for about a year and half. I joined a team as a skater, switched to reffing. I left that team, joined another as a ref and wanted to become a skater. Not too long ago, I felt a tear/pop in my knee. X-rays show nothing, up next is an MRI too tell me that I shouldn't be doing derby. This pretty much sucks! My knee hurts no matter what I do or don't do.
