Designed with a love for smooth legs and a passion for skin care, the Venus & Olay razor is a match made in skin heaven. Olay Moisture Bars release skin conditioners to help lock in moisture and boost your shave* while 5 blades get Venus close.
I previously reviewed the ProSkin MoistureRich Razor from Gillette, and was very impressed with the results. Again, it is positive results for Gillette razors. Unlike other razors, this one has FIVE blades and a pivoting head, which definitely made a difference, and made shaving a breeze! My legs felt so soft and smooth afterward!
The difference between that razor and this one is the Olay moisture bars. “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.” And I definitely noticed a difference after I stepped out of the shower; usually I immediately have to moisturize because shaving leaves my legs dry and prone to bumps, but the moisture bars worked their magic and I didn’t have to do a thing afterward.
The razor stays on my bathroom
mirror to keep it safe from water!
Only one negative I found was that I am, unfortunately, not a big fan of the smell. It’s a little too sickeningly sweet, but it’s not a detractor from the product, and I know a lot of people who like the smell. Just personally not my favorite.
Overall, this is a wonderful shaving option. As someone who prefers to shave my legs over any of the other options, I am definitely a big fan of these razors. I don’t think I can ever go back to shavers without the soap bars attached. My legs have never been so smooth since switching over to Gillette Venus!
A refillable Venus & Olay with one replacement cartridge sells for approximately $8.99-$10.99; three replacement cartridges 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.
