Gillete venus & olay razor

First off, I have to disclose that I received this sample thru my Influenster Love vox box in Feb 2012. Since then I have been in love with this razor. I promise that all the opinions are mine and honest. Below is what the website says:

Product Details

  • Venus’ five-bladed razors shave you close and adjust to women’s curves for a smooth and comfortable shave, even over tricky shaving areas like knees and ankles.
  • Olay Moisture Bars contain skin-enhancing elements found in Olay products: Petrolatum helps lock in skin’s moisture for less dryness and Glycerin helps offer that goddess glow! Just wet the razor to release a light lather – no separate shave cream required.
  • As with most Venus razors, new Venus & Olay also features a rounded, pivoting head designed for women’s curves, and a soft-grip ergonomic handle for confident control, even in wet and soapy environment


Where to Buy

A refillable Venus & Olay with one replacement cartridge sells for approximately $8.99-$10.99. Packages of three replacement cartridges are available for about $14.99 – $19.49.

Venus & Olay will be available starting March 15, 2012 at food, drug, convenience and mass merchandise stores throughout the United States.


MY Opinion:

The concept is pretty much the same as the Gillete venus razor that came in the blue packaging. But its a definate step up right from the way its packaged. You have to bend the package a bit to get the product out. Then attach the head to the handle and you are good to go. It also comes with the same wall mount attachment and I really like it. All you have to do is to stick it your shower wall and hang your razor once you are done, so that it dries completely, faster and that enhances the performance and longivity of the product.

Now the product itself has 2 moisturizing bar heads, upper one in light yellow and the lower one in white. It has a light powdery smell, that is not overwhelming or lasting, but just pleasent when you are using the razor. With this razor, you do not need to use shave gel. the moisturizing bar heads elimate the necessity of both the shave gel and moisturizer application, after shaving. But if you have dry skin, or its winter or you feel a need for extra moisture for any other reason, you are free to do so after shave

Its a 5 blade razor. What it promises and claims, it delivers.

You get a smooth close shave, that lasts, without the need of any shave gel before, or moisturization after. NO razor bumps either and that makes it a winner hands down with me.

Below are pictures and video link of the review. Do let me know your thoughts.

Thanks you
