As I posted yesterday, I recently received the Love Voxbox as a member of influesnter. Yestday I posted about the Ghirardelli chocolate I received. Today I want to talk about the new Gillette Venus and Olay razor that was in the box.
Have you ever tried a Venus razor? I have to admit I hadn't tried a Venus razor before receiving it in my Voxbox. I'm a cheap, disposable razor kind of gal. But I was more than willing to give the Venus a shot.
My favorite feature of the Venus (and I believe this is true of all Venus razors) is that you don't need to apply shaving gel, soap, or whatever you use before using the razor, as it is already built in. Simply wet the area you want to remove hair from and start shaving.
The Gillette Venus and Olay razor has Olay moisture bars built in to moisturize your skin and make it silky smooth. The razor has five blades and when you are done with your razor, you pop the head off and replace it with a refill cartridge.Another feature I like is that the Venus and Olay razor comes with a nifty little shower hook, so you can hang it on the shower wall when not in use. I usually end up laying my razor on the corner of the bathtub, where water can potentially pool up and cause the blade to rust. So I love the little shower hook.
Now, I cannot say for sure that that this razor gave me a better shave than a disposable (or any other) razor, but I do feel like the skin itself is less dry because of the built-in Olay bar (a huge plus in dry Texas!). And as I said, I love the convenience of the razor being ready to go, no prep required. So I'd say it is definitely worth a try.For more info, check out the Gillette Venus site here.
