I like the Gillette Venus razors over any other brand specifically because of the rounded head and moisture strip that goes all the way around the head. I’m not a huge fan of shaving, nor am I a connoisseur on razors, but I can say without a doubt that this is the best razor I’ve ever used. It’s hard for me to even imagine that every woman in the world doesn’t already know that Gillette is the best. If there are any of you out there that aren’t already loyal fans of Gillette, than that’s because you’ve never tried the Venus Embrace!
The five curve-hugging blades individually adjust to stay in contact with your skin, even around tricky areas like your knees, ankles, and bikini area. You don’t have to use the Gillette Satin Care Shave Gel to get the perfect shave, but the two products definitely work better together. (Plus the Satin Care Shave Gel comes in some pretty yummy scents like Alluring Avocado and Lavender Kiss!) When I used both the Embrace razor and the Satin Care shaving gel together, I got an incredibly close and smooth shave. I can now go almost 3 days without shaving again!
Gillette Venus Embrace Refill Cartridges are about $15 for a box of 4 cartridges. I don’t love the pricetag, but they are worth it. Razors are one of those necessary evils that cost more than you want it to, but ends up being totally worth it in the end. I replace the cartridge on my razor every 4 – 6 weeks. I don’t know if that is normal or average, but it works for me! Obviously the more you shave, the sooner the blades will become dull. With the Embrace having 5 blades though, it seems to not get dull quite as quickly.
When it comes to razors, you absolutely without a doubt, get exactly what you pay for. I have never used a cheap razor or disposable razor that I didn’t either cut myself with or had to throw away after 1 use. I personally don’t even see the point in a disposable razor unless you went on vacation and forgot your beloved razor at home.
I’m going to continue using my new and retire my well loved and very well used Gillette Venus Divine (only 3 blades).
You can of course find the new Gillette Venus Embrace Razor where ever you normally buy razors like the drugstore, grocery store, and retailers like Wal Mart and Target. And actually, Target has a Venus Embrace Value Pack for $16.99 that includes of course 1 razor, 1 shower pod, and 5 replacement cartridges!
