Beauty Review: Gillette Venus + Olay Razor

Now that Spring is almost here it is time to start getting ready for dresses, skits, and sleeveless shirts.  This means shaving ladies.  Now some of you might be die hard waxing fans but for those of us with either sensitive skin or just don’t have waxing in the budget, shaving is our best bet.

Now, I’ve tried every razor under the sun by now and I always circle back to the Gillette Venus razor, which is why I was super excited to try the new Venus + Olay razor.  Not only does this new razor feature all the perks of the Venus like 5 blades, a rounded, pivoting head designed for women’s curves, and a soft-grip ergonomic handle for confident control, even in wet and soapy environment, but this razor features 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!  This means no additional shaving gel/cream is needed, just wet the razor and go (this is also perfect for traveling).

I’ve given this razor a full on test run and we are loving it.  My legs are super silky and smooth plus I get the close shave I’ve come to love from Venus razors.

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.
