Shaving Tips and offers from Gillette / Dollar General + GIVEAWAY


You can get some great deals using Gillette coupons and Dollar General's everyday low prices and sales. Gillette makes the best razors that I have ever used. From the Gillette Venus and Olay razor to the Gillette Fusion...they are the best. You can use the following coupons from the September P&G brandSAVER to get great deals at Dollar General on Gillette razors:

*Buy any Gillette system or disposable and get $5 off a Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor
*Buy any Gillette system or disposable and get a MACH3 Razor FREE
*$3 off any Gillette male disposable

Do you have any shaving tips? I have a few that I have learned along the way. For example, shave after you shower for the closest shave. Apply lotion/ aftershave right after shaving to avoid irritation. Most importantly, keep your razor clean. Here is a Gillette and Dollar General video featuring Celebrity Stylist Marcus Geeter on "how to get a great shave".



P&G provided me with an awesome prize package (pictured at the top of this post) that included a Gillette MACH3 Razor, Simply Venus Disposable Razors and a $20 Dollar General gift card. I used my gift card to go shopping for some P&G products. The razors were unfortunately not marked with prices in my Dollar General, so I couldn't take pictures of those. I still found lots of great deals though! Here is what I found (note that prices vary by region/store):

$4 after coupon for CoverGirl Liquid or Powder Foundation!

$11 for two CoverGirl Mascara's with coupon

I realized after taking the picture that this coupon had expired. It would have been $5.85 for full size Secret Clinical Strength with the coupon.

$4 for Head&Shoulders after coupon

I left some of my coupons at home since I knew what I was going to buy (I was planning on buying a Gillette Fusion razor, Secret Clinical Strength and CoverGirl Foundation). Here are some of the other great prices that Dollar General had on P&G products:

$5 for 9 BIG rolls of Charmin

$6.50 for 6 rolls of Bounty

$10 for 35 Tide Pods

Those are some great prices! If you pair the prices with the P&G brandSAVER coupons, you can definitely save a lot of money.

I bought all products that are staples in my house with the $20 Dollar General gift card. However,  Hubby and I were excited to try some of the P&G razors we hadn't tried yet: the MACH3 for Hubby and the disposable Simply Venus razors for myself.

The MACH3 has a triple blade shaving system, comfort edges to glide smoothly over your skin and an advanced lubricating strip. The Simply Venus disposable razors have 2 blades and a moisture smooth strip. My Husband liked the MACH3 and said it gave him a good shave, but he still prefers the Gillette Fusion. I knew that I wouldn't be in love with the Simply Venus just because they only have 2 blades. They do a decent job though and I love that I can toss them in my gym bag and then not worry about tossing them after using them since they are disposable.

GIVEAWAY:

Two lucky winners will receive the same P&G package that I did with the following:

*Gillette MACH3 Razor
*Simply Venus Disposable Razors (4 pack)
*$20 Dollar General gift card

Use plenty of soap or shaving cream.

You can use hair conditioner instead of shaving cream.

Kayla said...

Never shave dry! That's definitely the biggest one!

buzzd said...

Wash your face first then shave. This way your skin is damp and softer so the shaving is more effective

I let my leg soak in the tub, then lather them up with shaving cream. Thanks for the opportunity!

Moisturize your legs after shaving. It prevents razor burn and makes your legs even more silky smooth!

Make sure your razor is sharp and not dull which could cause red bumps on your legs

Lynn said...

get your legs really wet and wait until the end of your shower or bath to shave.
