Review: Sothys Paris Energizing Booster Serum

Sothys Paris Energizing Booster Serum 1

Today I have another innovative skincare product from Sothys Paris to share with you.

If you are unfamiliar with Sothys, it is an avant-garde beauty expert that produces products sold exclusively in beauty institutes and spas. This highly specialized brand has an extraordinary commitment to research and innovation, which is shown through its innovative line of luxurious skin and body care.

The Energizing Booster Serum is not the first Sothys serum that I have had the pleasure of trying. Back in February, I reviewed the Perfect Shape Youth Serum, a product to reshape, redefine, and protect the facial contours while smoothing the décolleté. Whereas the youth serum’s focus is anti-aging for those 25 and older, the Energizing Booster Serum promotes a radiant complexion for all skin types at any age.

Harry's Truman Shave Set Review

Harry s Truman Shaving Set Review 6

For me, summer is a time of breezy evening walks, shameless weekly trips to the ice-cream parlour, wearing my favourite dresses and heels without having to worry about tights, and lots of leg shaving. I like to give my razor and my skin a break in the winter by only shaving my legs once per week, but in the summer shaving becomes part of my daily shower routine.

I’ve been shaving my legs for the past twenty years and have tried many different razors and shaving creams to try to make the process as quick, painless, and affordable as possible. I never wanted to commit to a reusable razor with replaceable blades because I couldn’t find one that was worth spending the money on, so I always used the best quality disposable razors that I could find. They were a little scratchy and only lasted a few shaves, but I had been looking for years and they were the best out there…or so I thought. Little did I know that I was limiting my shaving experience by only considering razors available at the drugstore and those designed specifically for women.

Recently, I had the opportunity to try a shave set from Harry’s and everything I thought I knew about razors changed. Unlike large brands that overdesign and overcharge, Harry’s offers fairly priced, high-quality razors that feature high-grade steel blades and handles designed using modern ergonomics. Harry’s ensures quality by focusing on innovation and customer satisfaction while taking part in the entire production process .

Since Harry’s avoids excess costs by making its own products in one of the world’s best blade factories in Germany and selling them directly to customers online, its razors retail for half the price of a traditional razor. The online store also offers a shave plan option for those who want to receive replacement blades in the mail based on shaving frequency. The cost is less than $2 per blade and those who sign up will receive a free razor handle. To put the price difference in perspective, I pay close to $15 for a package of three disposable razors at the drugstore, but with the shave plan I can get four replacement blades for only $8.

At the moment, Harry’s is also offering a shave plan free trial that includes a razor handle, blade, travel sized foaming shave gel, and a travel blade cover for free. You just pay the $3 shipping!
Although Harry’s is generally considered a men’s razor brand, it has many female customers due to the affordable prices, efficient design, and quality shave its razors offer.
