A Review: Venus & Olay Razor

As a member of the Influenster team, I recently received the Love VoxBox with several complimentary samples and full-sized products. One of the items I received was the Gillette Venus & Olay razor, a product that is set to hit the shelves tomorrow (March 15th).

I have personally been a Gillette Venus user for several years and was excited to try out this new twist on  an 'old classic.' In fact, I am fairly certain I've been using the same original Venus razor handle since college. {I graduated from college a mere 7 years ago, for reference.}

I had the opportunity to use this razor over the last few weeks and overall, I'm happy with the results. The razor blades are really the biggest difference in this product, as they have larger moisture bars (made with Olay moisturizers) that are on the top and bottom of the razor head itself. As someone who typically shaves their legs in the shower, this product performed quite well with nothing but the water from the showerhead.

It did take some time to get used to the best way to shave my legs with this product, as the razor does not sit directly onto the skin like my old razor. I think it's just been ground into my head that I need to press the razor onto my legs--which is not necessary with this razor.

The results were smooth legs and I did notice a difference in the moisture on my usually dry skin. I was excited that this product came with a small hook (with a suction cup on the back) to hang in the shower.

From Venus & Olay:

"Venus & Olay Razor

For the first time ever, Gillette Venus, a global leader in female shaving, and Olay, a global leader in skincare, are coming together to deliver a gold standard in shaving with the new Gillette Venus & Olay razor. Venus’ best shaving technology works with Olay Moisture Bars, offering women best-of-both-worlds shaving and skin expertise. Olay Moisture Bars help lock-in moisture to your skin for less dryness, and with every smoothing stroke, Venus’ five blades shave you close.
Product Details
•Venus’ five-bladed razors shave you close and adjust to women’s curves for a smooth and comfortable shave, even over tricky shaving areas like knees and ankles.

•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.

•As with most Venus razors, new Venus & Olay also features a rounded, pivoting head designed for women’s curves, and a soft-grip ergonomic handle for confident control, even in wet and soapy environment
