I thought I had shared my review of the Gilette Venus and Olay Razor but when TJ told me that she was anxious to try it I realized either I hadn’t or it wasn’t prominent enough to remember. First order of busienss: I received this product complimentary to test through Influenster’s Vox Box program. All opinions are completely my own.
DON’T DO IT!
I’ve read several bloggers who claim to have been lucky to receive this razor. They must have different shaving standards than I do. I know you’re thinking that maybe I had a bad experience because of my sensitive skin but that’s not it. My skin was fine….but my spirit was seriously disturbed by the way the bars on the razor turned goopy when wet. The grossest experience I’ve ever had when shaving.
The company information says:
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. 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’ve even read reviews that claim not to have needed shaving cream/gel. Don’t believe that either. The bar doesn’t kick in until it is super wet and then it goes from dry to goopy in less than 60 seconds flat.
If anyone else has tried it and has a different opinion PLEASE share.
