City Pulse

Have you ever noticed that women have to engage in more grooming practices than men do? We seriously believe that this is unfair. Between styling our hair, applying our makeup and slathering ourselves with lotion, it’s no wonder that women have little time for much else. Well, Kiehl’s has made one time-consuming chore much easier for women. The company is re-launching its popular “Close Shaverettes” Simply Mahvelous Legs Shave Cream this spring. This luxurious formula delivers much needed moisture and nourishment to skin and helps women achieve the closest and smoothest shave possible.

Kiehl’s would love for you to witness how well their shave cream works. That’s why they’ve decided to team up with the lovely Svetlana Pankratova, the woman who currently holds the record for the world’s longest legs.

Svetlana’s legs measure a breathtaking 4 feet 4 inches long – and she only uses Kiehl’s “Close Shaverettes” Simply Mahvelous Legs Shave Cream. Kiehl’s wants you to guess just how long it takes Svetlana to shave her legs. Which is why they’re hosting an online and in-store contest where you can estimate the amount of time it takes this leggy bombshell to shave. If you guess correctly, you can win an exclusive yearlong supply of Kiehl’s “Close Shaverettes” Simply Mahvelous Legs Shave Cream.

From now until March 15, log onto or head into either of their stores, located at 109 Third Ave. and 154 Columbus Avenue. If you guess correctly, you could be the lucky winner of this exclusive formula, infused with nourishing chamomile, sesame seed oil and allantoin. There’s no purchase necessary.
