Gillette Venus Subscribe To Smooth Event With Kalki Koechlin

June 20, 2017

Shaving is something we women do not opt for in the first place when it comes to hair removal. Even though we know it's a very simple, hassle free, quick and painless task, and something we can completely do on our own, we run to the parlour for waxing. The main reason for this hesitance is the numerous myths associated with shaving. What if I tell you those are not true?

So a few days back I was invited to the Gillette Venus "Subscribe To Smooth" event that took place in Kolkata. I was very excited to be a part of this event not only because it was a really big one, but also because Gillette Venus is a brand that I, in fact, a lot of women can identify with. If you follow me on Instagram, you must have seen that I had already done a campaign when the new razor, Breeze, was launched. So I already had a first hand experience with this new razor and I do have to admit I fell in love with the new innovation with three blades and gel bars that makes shaving so much better. This event was all about discussing the newly launched Gillette Venus Breeze and debunking all shaving related myths. I feel we all have some or the other questions when it comes to shaving or hair removal in general. In fact I myself would choose waxing over shaving even though it's painful and would only use a razor for my underarms. So, I felt very lucky to be a part of that discussion that cleared all my doubts about shaving and also very proud as a blogger since I have the opportunity to share whatever I learnt with all you lovely ladies out there who have same doubts about using a razor. But I am "shaving" that part for another blog post since I believe bursting shaving myths is an important topic and deserves special attention. So for now let me tell you my experience at the event.

The event took place in Hotel J W Marriott, Kolkata. I was before time so used that opportunity for some OOTD clicks and catching up with my blogger friends.

The event started with the lovely host Kavea talking about the hair removal hassles we ladies face all the time and we couldn't help but agree with a smile. She brought up some fun facts like the first men's razor that was there by Gillette was pink. Giving a quick introduction about various shaving myths that exist and how the new breeze razor is a game changer, she welcomed the star of the event, our very own Miss. Hawa Hawaii, the Bollywood diva, Kalki Koechlin.

Kalki's stage appearance on a revolving podium with her Hawa Hawaii song in the background, a cute fan in her hand, and a big smile on her face was totally going with the theme of the event, "Breezy". I couldn't help but aww for few seconds. She looked like a doll in a ruffle dress. Kavea asked her about her experiences with shaving to which she admitted, she shaves all the time indeed, no using wax or creams. She also shared few funny stories of her boarding school where she used to buy 5-7 rupees razors and also how she used to use her dad's razor to shave. She even said how she swears by the new Gillette Venus Breeze and how it is a convenient option for a person who's always on the go.

We were soon joined by celebrity dermatologist Dr. Rashmi Shetty who explained to us the technicalities of the new razor with three blades, each with a different function and two gel bars for the smooth shave and she assured us shaving is the safest, most hygienic, hassle-free and skin friendly method of hair removal. A razor with gel bars keeps your skin moisturised and smooth and we were convinced this new razor on the block is a must have for all women out there.
She also spoke on topics like razor burns, frequency of shaving, the correct method of shaving etc  and debunked all the myths with perfect explanations. Dr. Shetty and Kalki shared their experience of  shaving with the Breeze razor and what they love the most about it after which they answered all the queries from the audience.

The discussion ended with bursting balloons, each balloon representing a shaving myth.

Overall it was a fun filled afternoon with some informative discussions and Q&As. Since all my doubts about shaving is cleared now, I can look forward to a better, more convenient and painless hair removal experience with the new Gillette Venus Breeze.
