A Shaving Cream Bikini
Wow! And another Wow! Nina Agdal did another wacky project. She wore only a shaving cream bikini. Yes! She was basically nude.
Or should I say Sports Illustrated did a marvelous job? This idea is really crazy.
I came across this news because I set up a Google trend keyword about shaving cream and Nina Agdal showed up in my email. I thought I would only come across about shaving cream products, not a hot girl parading her flawless figure. I think I need to check my Google trend settings to see if I included Nina Agdal in the search parameters.
This is a great USA sports magazine. It covers (may vary from issue to issue) the NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, College Football, College Basketball, NASCAR, Golf, Boxing, Horse Racing, Soccer, and Tennis.
It will address the latest news and rumors in their respective fields. But sadly, it has moved away from true journalism. It avoids major controversies such as drugs, violence, and commercialisms. It is just an entertainment magazine in Sports.
Let’s get back to Nina Agdal
She is a former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover girl. Nina Agdal, 23, has already posed in bikinis. Even body paints. But wearing a swimsuit made 100% of shaving cream? This is the first one.
For this year’s new Swimsuit issue, Nina goes where no model has gone before by posing completely nude. She wore nothing aside from well-placed shaving cream that’s been strategically placed into a bikini top and string bottoms.
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit franchise usually portrays only bikinis and body paints. This year’s issue will break that tradition. Nina will be seen flaunting her body with the product in hand, Edge Shave Gel. The shaving cream will try its best to cover her need-to-be-covered during the photo shoot. Yes, it’s her naked body.
“Sports Illustrated has asked me to do a few crazy things in my life, but people are going to be shocked,” said photographer James Macari in a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot.
“When all you’re wearing is a bikini made from Edge Shave Gel, it’s really important that it stays in place,” explains Nina in the video. “It gave me a layer of protection I needed on set.”
Yeah? But will it give a layer of protection during shaving? Will it give a smooth slick glide? Maybe someone should run a razor over that foamy thing on Nina’s body. See if she will stay true on her saying “it’s really important that it stays in place”?
Edge Shave Gel
Now, I have been using a shave gel every now and then. This is before I knew anything about traditional wet shaving. After I converted to a traditional wet shaving, I knew better than using a can shaving gel.
Here is what I learned using a shave gel (mainly Gillette’s)
- It does not give you protection
- It does not hold long. It disappears too fast
- It is not slick. My razor is always tugging.
- It does not give you cushion
I suspect that Edge Shave Gel will have the same problem. No, I have not tried it, yet. No, you cannot offer me to try it. No, you cannot make me use it.
Here is what Edge Shave Gel saying about their own products (I recap from all the product lines):
- Our blend of moisturizers and lubricants provides excellent razor glide
- Special moisturizers and lubricants provide unbeatable razor glide
- Outstanding razor glide, thanks to a blend of moisturizers and lubricants
- Contains extra lubricants to help prevent nicks, cuts and razor burns
- Contains Allantoin and no dyes to help reduce shaving irritation
- Contains Aloe and is formulated to be non-irritating
- Protects your skin and leaves your face feeling smooth, refreshed and conditioned
Do you believe those marketing ploys? I certainly don’t. By looking at the behind the scenes video, I noticed that the foam really stays in place. Even after Nina bounces her breasts, it stays. This is exactly what makes the decision.
The conclusion for me, if it stays on her breasts, it is not slick. If it is not slick, my razor will tug. When my razor tugs, I tend to use force. Force and pressure always give me cuts. I don’t like being cut. I don’t want to draw blood. Like I said in the previous post, I want to draw a magnificent dragon.
Somebody should really clean up her foams use a razor blade. Her smooth (not hairy) body should be an ideal test platform. If the razor leaves no razor burns at all, especially at her bikini area, I will use this Edge Shave Gel. Do you agree?
I just love that I come across this advertisement. Besides seeing a happy beautiful Scandinavian girl, I can resonate what DaltonGang said “Finally, a proper, rational use, for a “Canned Goo”. Two thumbs up.”
I really recommend you to get a proper shave cream. There are tons of them. Just not a can of shaving gel. Here are some of my recommendation on shaving creams and soaps:
