Hard to believe we are at the last week of February. For being a short month, it sure went by fast! I am leaving on Friday morning for Atlanta. The Trials are on Saturday and I am running a half marathon on Sunday. Should be a fun weekend! I will have a recap in next week’s linkup.
This week’s Tuesday Topic is a FREE topic. Feel free to post any running related blog post. Remember to link up with Kim and Zenaida! Visit at least two of the other linked posts – the more the merrier! Remember to come back for later linkers!

♥ Ritual – It is a multivitamin. Yes, I can get one pretty much anywhere. I got these based on another friend’s recommendation. These vitamins are vegan certified, gluten and allergen free, non-GMO, and no colorants or synthetic fillers. (Source: https://ritual.com/). There are 3 options to pick from: Multivitamin 18+, Prenatal Vitamin, and Multivitamin 50+. Each month you get a bottle with 60 capsules (you take 2 per day). You also get an email a few days before you get charged and before they’re shipped. You can then rush or delay an order. You can also cancel your subscription at any time. Each pill has 9 key ingredients such as folate, omega-3, vitamins B12, vitamin D3, iron, vitamin K2, boron, vitamin E, and magnesium. I like that everything is in one pill (versus taking multiple ones) and that they’re delivered to me. Have I noticed anything different? Well, lately I have noticed that I am more calm. Could be from the multivitamin or something else. If you want to try it out, let me know and I can send you a link to get $15 off your first order.
♥ Billie Razors – I have tried many different kinds of razors and I finally found one that I like a lot. These razors are inexpensive and leave your legs very smooth. At sign up you pay $9 and you get a shaver, a magnetic holder, and two 5-blade razor cartridges. Then for $9, every month or every 2 or 3 months (you select the subscription frequency), you get four replacement blade cartridges sent to your house. You can also delay an order or cancel your subscription. I shave once a week and replace my razor every month. Other products you can purchase are shave cream, body lotion, a travel case, an extra handle and holder, and body wash. Click HERE to order your razors.
♥ Prose Personalized Hair Care – Yes, I get my shampoo and conditioner through the mail. There are questions you answer (consultation) and based on your answers, Prose recommends the items for you to buy. There are questions such as age, hair texture and length, condition of hair, whether you have dandruff or dry scalp. They also take into consideration the city you are living in for humidity, pollution, UV rays, and water hardness. You can also pick if you want vegan, gluten-free, and silicone-free products. Yes, lots of questions! Finally, they recommend a fragrance but you can also change it (there is also an option for fragrance-free).
I received my first order in December. The bottles are really small. I was very impressed with the scent. I don’t wash my hair every day anymore and can say that I really like the shampoo and conditioner. My scalp doesn’t itch as much and my hair does feel very soft and smells nice. I also ordered the hair oil but I thought it was too greasy (turns out I was using too much). I let them know about it and they gave me a refund. They said I could keep the bottle and now I use it mostly as a deep conditioner. Other items you can get are leave-in conditioner, dry shampoo, pre-shampoo mask, curl cream, and a boar bristle.
If you subscribe, you save 20% off your order. You can change or cancel your subscription at any time. Even if you don’t subscribe, you can change the formula of your shampoo and conditioner by doing another consultation. Each bottle of shampoo and conditioner is $25. I know it isn’t cheap but I really like them and will continue to use them. If you want to try it out, let me know and I can send you a link to get $10 off your first order.
Just curious but how often do you shave your legs? Are you using any of the products I mentioned?
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
I just saw an ad for those razors yesterday! Glad to hear you like them. I shave every day in the summer and a little less often in the winter. I’m really bad about changing my razors, though! Thanks for sharing all these products.
I am lazy when it comes to shaving. Once a week is enough for me. 🙂
I’m not too OCD with shaving in the winter LOL My bad! I’ve gotten a lot more lax on washing my hair as well, but my hair is more dry than oily so I can go a couple days between shampoos before it gets nasty.
Once I realized that washing it every day contributed to my dry scalp, I stopped doing that. Washing it every other day or two days is fine for me.
I shave when I shower (which is not every day).I actually use an electric razor (that I can use in the shower) and I love it. I got my first one as a Bat Mitzvah present — so I’ve never actually used a regular razor!
I use coconut oil to condition my hair. I put it on in the morning, and then when I wash my hair later I just use shampoo. I’ve been doing that a few years now. It really works for me.
I have heard great things about using coconut oil to condition your hair. I think I’ve done it once or twice but must have done something wrong because my hair was so greasy and I had to wash it multiple times.
I would guess that you just used too much. I can remember having my hair oiled at a spa once, and it ruined my clothes (seriously, they should have warned me). It doesn’t take a whole lot at all. I don’t wash my hair every day, usually only when I run, so I put a little in in the morning, and then the sweat when I run really lets it get into my hair. 🙂
I need to find a good razor – how do they do with the under arm area? I find most are too big to hug all those curves. In winter I shave about once a week. In summer my arms might need more attention!
I think they work fine. I have been using them for almost a year and haven’t had any problem with them. Try them out. If you don’t like them then you can always cancel your subscription.
I’ve seen those vitamins online and wanted to give them a try. Glad you are loving them! My friends love the Billie razors!
Try them out! If you don’t like it, then let them know and you’ll get your money back. I am going to send you a message with a link.
Interesting products, especially the Prose hair care one. I’m using one of Shathiso’s tips and sometimes only use conditioner for washing my hair.
I just realised we’re running a half on the same day, this coming Sunday, 1 March! Good luck!!
Good luck on your race! I am already in Atlanta and am nervous because the course is VERY HILLY. I’ve also been using conditioner for washing my hair. I’ve been loving it!
In winter I only shave my legs whenever they start to bother me, lol. During summer probably 2-3 times a week.
I just like having a routine so that is why I picked Saturday to shave my legs. If I don’t shower that day then I shave the next day.
I runfess I’ve never heard of any of these products! Those vitamins are pretty cool looking.
I think I heard about them through a Facebook ad? I guess it was a way of telling me that I needed to buy the products. I am going to send you links for each one in case you want to try them out.
Thanks for the tips.These are all new to me.
I don’t shave often in the winter I confess but a lot in the summer.
I also have very very dry hair and I can’t wash it often
They were new to me items till I saw them in a Facebook ad. Great way to get me to buy them. 🙂
You’ve been able to try some fun new products! I haven’t shaved my legs in well over a decade, maybe two! Gross as that sounds…I actually either get them waxed or use a home epilator. Now that I’m (ahem) getting older, my hair growth has slowed and I only have to do it once or twice a month, if that!
I had thought about waxing but obviously never followed through.
I haven’t heard of these before. I do swear by vitamins and have taken mine for many, many years now. My leg hair is blond, and pretty sparse these days, so I pretty much only shave maybe once a week if I’m going to be wearing shorts at track – but even then you probably couldn’t tell!
I found out about them from a Facebook ad. Glad I did because I really like them all.
I haven’t heard of any of these products – thanks for sharing! I’m curious about the Prose hair care.
I found out about them through a Facebook ad. 🙂 I am going to send you a link to the Prose hair care. Anything you don’t like then you can let them know and they will send you a refund.
We have been using Bilie razors for a months now and really like them too
Aren’t they the best!!!!
I haven’t heard of these products! I’ll look them up online 🙂 For getting rid of leg and underarm hair, I’ve been waxing for years. Love it because I only have to do it once a month. But over winter I usually let my hair grow wild, LOL!
Waxing does sound like a great option. I had thought about doing it but never followed through. Maybe I will when I get tired of shaving.
