Gillette Venus & Olay Razor Review


What happens when two amazing companies like Gillette and Olay team up? Nothing short of amazing, of course! I recently received the new Gillette Venus and Olay razor to review as part of my Influenster Love VoxBox (Read: Dear Influenster, I heart thee!). 

This razor is particularly intriguing because it contains Olay moisture bars which release moisturizers onto your skin as you shave. These moisture bars have Petrolatum which helps to lock in skin’s moisture for less dryness and Glycerin which helps to offer that goddess glow! These moisture bars are the reason that I REALLY love this razor. You do not need shaving cream. This razor has cut my shaving time in half. It makes my morning shave so much faster and easier. Plus, my legs feel silky smooth afterwards.


Here are some of the benefits of the Gillette Venus and Olay Razor:

*Olay Moisture Bars release skin conditioners 
*5 razor blades get Venus close 
*Interchangeable Razor Blade Refill Cartridges  
*Shower Hook for convenient, in-shower storage  
*SoftGrip® handle for confident control

The handle is also very noteworthy. I have never had a razor with a handle quite like this. Not only does it have a great grip, but it feels really comfortable in your hand. I sometimes grip my razors super tight because I don't want to drop them or cut myself and I will have indents on my hand afterwards. This is not the case with this razor. 

My only complaint about this razor is that the moisture bars did not last as long as I would have liked. After about 4 shaves, they were mostly gone. I am still using the razor now, but I have to use shaving gel because the moisture bars are completely gone. The razor however is on shave number 8 or 9 and still going strong. 

I think that these razors are a great time saver. They made it a lot easier for me to shave when I had surgery recently. They would also be great for traveling. Who wants to spend their vacation shaving? Not this girl! I think everyone should definitely try out this unique razor and see if it works well for you. If nothing else, pick one up for vacation or those weeks when you have little time. Trust me, you will be grateful that you did.

Disclaimer: I received this razor free of charge from Influenster. All opinions are 100% my own honest thoughts. I was not compensated in any other way, but I am entered to win more freebies by doing this post.
