Gillette Venus Embrace

Hello Lovelies!
Venus Embrace blade refills provide an ultra-close shave with five blades that hug curves to get virtually every hair.  Available in 4- and 8- count packages.

Did you know that any Venus blade refill fits any Venus handle so you can find your perfect shaving match without having to purchase a whole new razor?  Very cool huh?  This product is a must try!

Venus & Olay blade refills feature Olay Moisture Bars that contain skin conditioners to help lock in moisture and with every smoothing stroke, Venus’ five blades provide an ultra-close shave.  Available in 3-count packages.
Who likes razors that leave nicks?  Not me!  I found that this razor gives a nice shave. The 5 blades make for a close shave while protecting your skin from nicks.  However, I'm not loving the Ribbon of Moisture feature.  It adds a lot of bulk around the blades.  Also, I prefer lathering up with shaving cream before shaving.  The moisturizing gel on the blade did not have enough moisture to use without shaving cream.  When I went to touch up a few spots out of the shower the wet moisture strips left stringy goo on my skin, and also where the blade was laying in the shower it had stringy goo. Very messy.  I did not care for that at all.

While I'm not a fan of the "no shave gel needed" feature it isn't horrible.  It did leave my legs soft, so they are fine for use in the shower.  They aren't great for dry shaving touch-ups.  Gillette included a $2 off refill coupon with this Influenster trial kit so I have used the coupon to pick up more blades.  I'm looking forward to trying all of them to find my perfect match!

These razors are perfect for someone who likes their shave gel to come with the razor.  I also think they would be good for beginners because the 5 blades are gentle to your skin.  I'm impressed that everything can be swapped between handles and cartridges.  I'm really glad that I had the opportunity to try this product because it's so different. Hope that you found my review helpful!

I received my razor complimentary from Influenster for review purposes.  However, all opinions are my own.
