Gillette Venus and Olay Razor

Recently I did a post mentioning that I had received a complimentary Gillette Venus and Olay Razor through the Influenster VoxBox program.  I have had enough time now to test the razor out and give you my complete thoughts.
First I want to mention what the brand says about their product:
“For the first time ever, Gillette Venus, a global leader in female shaving, and Olay, a global leader in skincare, are coming together to deliver a gold standard in shaving with the new Gillette Venus & Olay razor. Venus’ best shaving technology works with Olay Moisture Bars, offering women best-of-both-worlds shaving and skin expertise. Olay Moisture Bars help lock-in moisture to your skin for less dryness, and with every smoothing stroke, Venus’ five blades shave you close.
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.”

Here is what I think:
For starters I would like to mention that I have tried just about every razor on the market.  I seem to have different specifications for separate areas of need.  For the last couple of years I keep a cheap ol’ disposable razor and the Schick Intuition in my razor arsenal.  I love the ease of the moisturization and the one-stop-shop quickness of the Intuition but it was very large and wasn’t good for getting into the underarms or even for being precise with ….. big toe hair?  (OH GAWD I can’t believe I just said that on my blog! LOL)  But in all seriousness–you all know it is there… and we need to rid ourselves of the embarrassing hair.  Obviously that is where the little cheapie razors came in to play because they are perfect for precision.  
The Gillette Venus and Olay Razor has brought the best of both worlds with perfect moisturization and all in one product (no need for a shaving gel) and the precision of one of the smaller razors.  In fact there are 5 blades in this razor so it is even more powerful than any other razor.  This razor packs so much punch that there is little need or want to go off looking for something better.  Thank you Gillette and Olay for teaming up!   

I found this beautiful picture on the Gillette Venus Facebook page and Thought I would share it.  After I shave my legs without having to worry with the hassle of 2 different razors and shave gel I wanna do cart-wheels in a field of wild flowers too! ;)  
My Newest Addiction Rating: ♥ (5 out of  5)  
Great all in one razor.  A little on the pricey side but convenience is worth that to me.  And honestly–if you add up all that I had been using in comparison to this one product this is actually a steal.
