Influenster: Gillette Venus Embrace Sensitive

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

For some miraculous reason I was selected to review the Gillette Venus Embrace Sensitive Razor and I'm not sure if that's a compliment or an insult, seeing as I hate shaving, and showers. Either way, I was prompted to shave for like the first time in months. My legs that is...I keep everything else locked down. ;) Onto the review:

First off, I'd like to thank Venus for making a razor in any other color than pink. I know I'm a girl and I'm forced to like pink everything, but I don't. I also enjoyed the smaller size of the shower hook, because the bathroom is a germ fest and simplicity is key.

Before shaving I rubbed shower gel on my legs, not shave cream, just whatever I had in the bathroom and then continued to shave. Considering I wanted to shave my legs, armpits and the goods, I expected to be in the shower for a decent half hour; which sucks. I always try to avoid shaving the 'trifecta' (legs, armpits, lady parts) and will often just focus on what I'm needing to show...at a specific time.

Within 5 minutes I was able to achieve an amazing shave with great results. My legs were conditioned and hydrated, thanks to the smoothing strips around the blades, and contrary to my usual routine, I wasn't sliced, diced and bleeding.

Overall, I am highly pleased with the Gillette Venus Embrace Sensitive razor. Retailing at 10.99 for the starter kit...I can't say that I will absolutely buy it, for the sole reason of the cartridges being so expensive but ultimately, it is cheaper than a wax...

Thanks Influenster for the overall best shave that I've had in years.

Grade: A
