Elevease Shower Step *Review and Giveaway*

Being pregnant creates all kinds of havoc with the shaving of your legs or painting your toenails doesn't it! I remember being in the throws of labour, feet in stirrups, looking at my legs thinking "the shame!". In the harsh strip lighting of the hospital, my legs looked like a newborn animal - fuzzy, downy... just monstrously hairy!! I guess out of sight, out of mind. But the moment I realised how much they needed doing, is the moment I wished I'd tried harder to manoeuvre around that bump.

Elevease shower step is a handy item designed to help women, not only in my predicament, but for anyone who struggles to bend or reach down to their legs and feet whilst in the shower. Basically, It does what it says on the box.

carsonsmummy, elevease shower step review, shave legs pregnant

I was kindly sent one to give you all my thoughts, so here goes...

Firstly, the packaging.  Very 1990's. If I had the decision on whether to buy one as a gift for someone based purely on packaging alone - it doesn't stand out from the crowd unfortunately.

That said, the concept is so viable that you should look past the packaging.

Contents are the step itself (you can choose from white and chrome, I opted for white to match my tiles!) and a tube of adhesive.

Application is surprisingly simple. Apply the adhesive to the step and hold in desired place for 3 minutes. Then allow it to dry securely for a further 24hours, just to create a strong bond. You can't allow anyone in the home to take a shower or steamy bath in this period of time else it could compromise it's staying power.

I was nervous to put my weight on the step at first but had nothing to worry about! It made shaving my legs super easy even though my bump is no longer there. I'm still overcomig SPD so bending and twisting is very much a problem for me.

It just goes to show that anyone can make use of this product, male or female, pregnant or not. Perhaps you've had a c-section or any other operation recently, maybe you have a bad back or have pulled your shoulder and can't stretch. Or perhaps your shower cubicle is short on space which makes bending difficult.

It's not just for leg shaving either, leg and foot care in general. With summer coming too, painted toenails or a bit of fake tan on your pins are a simple task with Elevease Shower Step.

Because I can't snap myself whilst in position (trust me, I tried!) Checkout Elevease's YouTube video:



Priced at just €16.99 for the white or €23.99 for the chrome I think it's uses provide real value for money. It also looks seamless in your bathroom, which is just as important!
